The MEGALOBOX anime helped celebrate the 50th anniversary of legendary boxing series Ashita no Joe when it first debuted in 2018, and it has since taken on a life of its own. Now, followup season MEGALOBOX 2: NOMAD is here with a fresh update, complete with April 4 premiere plans, a new trailer, and a striking new visual.
First up, the English-subtitled version of the new trailer:
As for how we'll be able to check it out, Funimation confirmed plans to simulcast the MEGALOBOX 2: NOMAD anime as part of the Spring 2020 season, so stay tuned for more as we get closer to the show's premiere.
If you missed the first season—which is totally worth checking out—Crunchyroll streamed it and describes it below.
A desolate land stretches out from the city of poverty. A motorcycle speeds recklessly, blowing clouds of sand and dust. The rider is the protagonist of this story – he has neither a name nor a past. All he has is his ring name, “Junk Dog” and a technique for rigging MEGALOBOX matches with his pal Gansaku Nanbu, which they use to support their hand-to-mouth lives. JD is bored, resigned, and unfulfilled. Yuri has been the reigning champion of MEGALOBOX for the past few years. He has the skills and presence of a true champion. This is a story of JD and his rival, Yuri.
