This piece of article will take you through all details about this anime series.
Charlotte Season 2 plot
The story revolves around four adolescents with supernatural powers and how they deal with them. It all starts with an alternative reality where a short-period comet called Charlotte passes the Earth once every 75 years. During this, it spreads some dust onto the Earth and when that is inhaled by pre-adolescent children, a small percentage of them develop certain supernatural powers by the time they hit puberty.
There are basically four central characters- Yu Otosaka, Nao Tomori, Jojiro Takajo, and Yusa Nishimori. The protagonist Yu Otosaka is a teenager who has the ability to temporarily possess another person for five seconds. He unexpectedly crosses paths with a high school girl, Nao Tomori. She can make herself invisible to a specific target. That is when he realizes that there are others like him too. Nao forces him to transfer to Hoshimoumi Academy where students with such powers study. He joins the student council and there he meets Jojiro Takajo, who can move at uncontrollably high speed.
Hoshinoumi Academy’s main aim is to protect all those teenagers with supernatural abilities and keep them safe from other organizations that can exploit their abilities. The student’s council warns the students to use their ability carefully not to cause any harm and about the dangers, it pertains to. Another girl, this time with the power to channel the spirits of the dead as a medium joins the academy.
Unfortunately, Yu’s younger sister Ayumi possesses the ability to cause anything around her to suddenly collapse and this leads to her own death. shocked by this incident, Yu suffers from depression and isolates himself. But Nao helps him and makes his return to the student council. Later Yu along with Nao attends a post-rock band concert and there he gets back the memories of his brother Shunasuke whose power is time traveling.
It is then revealed that it was actually Shunasuke who build the Hoshinoumi Academy as he could see the past as well as the future. He saw the future and figured out that children having supernatural powers can get several complications. So he went to the past and build the Academy to develop a vaccine that would stop the spread of these powers among children.
However, over time Shunasuke becomes blind due to repeated use of his power. At the same time, Yu discovers a new feature of his ability- he could also steal a person’s abilities by possessing them. In an attempt to get his sister back, Yu takes Shunsuke’s ability and goes back in time to steal Ayumi’s collapse ability before she can use it.
But perhaps, more challenges were waiting ahead for Yu and his friends. Nao and one of Shunasuke’s closest friends, Kumagami get kidnapped by a terrorist group and are held hostage in exchange for Yu. Yu tries to save them but indeed fails and as a result, Kumagami dies. Yu gets severely injured. Yu regrets it and promises to protect the rest of the ability bearers around the world by stealing their powers.
As planned Yu sets to travel the world but unfortunately after a point of time the more powers he takes, the more his health starts deteriorating. It starts taking a toll on his mental health and slowly he loses his memory and sense of self. Finally, he successfully steals all the abilities but ends up losing his entire memory before collapsing.
Shunsuke comes to his rescue and brings him back to Japan. Everyone tries their best to help him recollect his memories. Nao tells him that she is his girlfriend. As nothing works, Yu’s friends look forward to making new memories with him.
CHARLOTTE SEASON 2 CONFIRMED?
Season 1 of this series ended on a cliffhanger leaving the fans anxious and excited to see what happened to Yu and Nao’s relationship and the future of all the teenagers who were saved. Charlotte also received an original Special after Season 1, which served as a side story to the main TV anime. So this might mean that there are possibilities for Charlotte season 2 but nothing has been announced yet.
If there will be Charlotte season 2 then it will probably have a fresh storyline or can also be a continuation of season 1. The fact the season 1 did not exactly have a loose ending makes it difficult for us to assume about the next season.
