The immensely popular anime is returning for Season 2. I kid you not! The show based on the light novel of the same name explores a parallel world and legendary fighting equipment.
When Is It Coming?
Production for season 2 was confirmed by Junichiro Tamura. Crunchyroll has confirmed the same. Season 2 is likely to air around 2021. As of now, however, there is no concrete release date.
Naofumi is finally a hero now though, but the other Heroes are reluctant to accept the upstart. Expect to see a lot of friction and intense action.
Naofumi, Raphtalia and Filo return. Expect to see more of the other Heroes and their legendary weapons. Tantalising battles await!
What’s Got Fans Worried?
Fans are worried. The anime will soon run out of backing content from the light novels. In fact, there’s a real possibility that the anime will go beyond the manga in season 3. This is worrisome(see Game of Thrones). Yet, fans need not panic yet. For now, the anime is going strong and is one of the best out there.
The future depends on how the light novel progresses now. While the Japanese versions are complete, the English versions have quite some material left to cover.
Fans will be aware that season 3 has been confirmed too, in a surprising revelation. All in all, if, like me, you’re a fan, there’s little to worry about and a lot to look forward to!
