Knowing the dangers that lies ahead, the surviving criminals and executioners join forces to defeat Lord Tensen, acquire the Elixir of Life, and escape the island. The situation worsens with the arrival of the second landing party and one of the members of Lord Tensen, Zhu Jin, using the Banko to take over Hōrai.
Additionally, a new cast member has been revealed by the staff for season 2. His name is Yamada Asaemon Shugen, and he will be voiced by Ryouta Suzuki (known for Yuu Ishigami in Kaguya Sama and Ryuusui in Dr. Stone)
