Darling in the Franxx Season 2 Synopsis – Story Line

An unidentified virus began to spread in the city of Joura in the Franxx – a massive city space station. The mutated bodies of the disease carriers were transformed into giant humanoid robots called Arcs who attacked the people living in the city. The survivors retreated into the parts of the city where it was safe, but the Arc’s still went after them.

They were outnumbered and on the verge of death when Clow Reed saved them and took them to safety on the Franxx. Reed and the other survivors formed a band of fighters and formed the Legion of Fighters to defend the people of Joura. While everyone was working to make the world safe, the sole surviving Arc, Rou, gained a new power from the virus and became immortal. Rou then embarked on a series of desperate quests to retrieve the pieces of the virus and unlock its powers.

Meanwhile, Kamui and friends travel the Franxx in the pursuit of Rou. But at the same time, the Rinken on their own side of the Empire were fighting to protect their home world of Rozen Maiden and eliminate a group of Rinken who had discovered that the Empire were part of a plot to exterminate the Rinken for what they had done. The story sounds really, really interesting and epic! So, we hope you are going to love the season 2 of “Darling in the Franxx”.
