With the Fall 2015 anime season coming to a close, Concrete Revolutio‘s first season is coming to an end just after we started to learn what the hell is going on in the story. While excited to see where the story is going, part of me was hoping that we’d be able to see more of the series’ world. Though I suppose that’s true for many series as they air. Fortunately, in the case of Concrete Revolutio, that desire has been addressed.
The official Twitter account for streaming service Daisuki of Anime Consortium Japan announced that Concrete Revolutio is going to be receiving a second season. The second season is set to air starting April 2016 as part of the Spring 2016 season. Bones will be producing the second season as it’s done with the first with Anime Consortium Japan co-producing. According the series’ official Twitter, Gen Urobuchi (creator of Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero)will be contributing to some of the second season’s scripts as a guest writer.
The stage is set in “another Japan” as a banquet of diverse superhumans unfolds…
In an imaginary “age of gods” about 20 years after the war, Japan has grown and developed by leaps and bounds. What if all the superhumans ever written about in fictional stories existed at the same time? Superhumans who came into existence through different circumstances, and who are special in different ways — Titans from outer space, lifeforms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations, and the list goes on. One segment of these superhumans makes no secret of their existence and has gained popularity in society. Others cloak their identities and fight in secrecy.
There are enemies of superhumans as well, organizations that operate in the shadows. The Japanese government has taken many measures to secure peace and order. One is the establishment of an organization under the Ministry of Health and Welfare — the Overpopulation Research Laboratory, a.k.a. the Superhuman Bureau. Their mission is to identify and approach suerhumans, then oversee and safeguard them.
