The Netflix original Japanese animated series, B: The Beginning, had released all of its 12 episodes on the service provider on March 2, 2018. The original net animation (ONA) show then received enormous popularity and recognition worldwide. Unlike most Japanese series, B: The Beginning is one of the very few shows that exuded an entirely fresh idea that wasn’t based on a Manga series or a light novel.
Back in June 2018’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival, Netflix had announced the B: The Beginning season 2. The fans have since been awaiting the comeback of season 2 with every ounce of patience. Let us skim through all the details we have banded together for you to read. So, let’s get started.

On February 24, 2016, Netflix announced the series B: The Beginning and communicated the necessary details that included 12 episodes in totality and releasing the series in 190 countries globally. (check: Disenchantment season 2.)

B: The Beginning Season 2 Plot
Cremona- an archipelagic nation follows the life of two individuals named Keith Kazama Flick and Koku. With a futuristic backdrop where advanced technologies are the people’s strength, Cremona falls chaotic when a serial killed known as Killer B starts wreaking havoc.
Keith joins the Royal Investigation Society (RIS) as they investigate the case of Killer B. On the other hand, a boy named Koku, who seems a regular teenager, comes into the picture. He is an extraterrestrial looking for his lost partner. Incidents revealed that Koku is none other than the Killer B who has wings and an arm and one leg that transforms into steel, becoming great weapons as Black King.
When Keith and Koku’s paths cross, they uncover a secret organization, a “research project on the resurrection of gods, and a prophecy which foretells the rise of an entity called the “Black King.”
The next season could always bring up new characters and storylines to match the genre of psychological thrill, science fiction, and drama.
