Sentai Filmworks has acquired the licenses to some major releases including Made in Abyss, Lupin The Third Part 6, Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler and more! The first season of Made in Abyss was a huge hit with fans when it first debuted back in 2017, but was streaming exclusively with Amazon Prime Video as part of their (now defunct) streaming effort, Anime Strike. This left many of those projects up for grabs, and fans have been able to see more of Made in Abyss' later releases through Sentai Filmworks. Now they will be the exclusive home to Season 2 as well.
Announced as part of their new slate of licenses during the Sentai at Home 2 virtual celebration, Sentai Filmworks confirmed Made in Abyss' second season will be releasing digitally in 2022 with a home video release to follow. This new season, officially titled as Made in Abyss: The Golden City of the Scorching Sun, will be releasing alongside the first season and three theatrical films with Sentai Filmworks as well. But that's nowhere near all.
Sentai Filmworks also confirmed a new slate of licenses and acquisitions that include some new releases yet to be seen such as Shikizakura and Lupin The Third Part 6, and some lost within other streaming services such as Kakegurui that will not be breaking out with home video releases in the near future. The slate of new licenses announced during Sentai at Home 2 breaks down as such:
- Drifting Dragons
- Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA - Licht Nameless Girl
- Girls und Panzer das Finale - Part 2 and Part 3
- IRODUKU: The World in Colors
- Lupin The Third Part 6
- Made in Abyss
- Waccha PriMagi!
- Yuki Yuna is a Hero: The Great Mankai Chapter
