What is the Plotline of By the Grace of Gods?

Three years later, Ryouma, who spends most of his time researching slime, discovers unique types of slime and manages to create an army of slime while developing his magic abilities. Although he is content with his reclusive existence and comfortable cave house, he longs for the companionship of humans. Healing an injured member of a traveling group, Ryouma is convinced to go with them and leaves the forest with his slimes behind. A whole new world awaits him, where he arouses astonishment and admiration with his magical abilities and slime-catching skills.

When is the second season of By the Grace of the Gods?

According to the news from the official website of the anime, on June 4, 2021, the anime has been renewed for a second season. It will take place exactly three years after the first season end, where Ryoma and Eliaria promised to meet again. The anime will be broadcast by Funimation, as in the first season. Funimation has also announced this good news on its website.


The light novel written by Roy and illustrated by Ririnra has been published since 2017. The last volume of the light novel, which reached 10 volumes in total, was published on December 22, 2020. The anime was adapted from the first 3 volumes of the light novel series. Considering the remaining stock material, it looks like we may see a third season if things go well. But there is no renewal for more seasons yet. Still, a second season is certain to appear before the audience.

The popularity of the anime

By the Grace of the Gods was one of the popular anime of 2020. However, its popularity around the world and in Japan is not very strong. Sometimes we witness that not very popular productions are approved for the new season. But later seasons may be at risk with the current popularity. Currently, the official Twitter account of the series is followed by only about 20k people. Generally, we see that animes that have been approved for the second season reach at least 100k followers. According to Myanimelist data and when we look at the search volume on Google, we see that anime is not very popular worldwide. The second season will be a good opportunity for the anime to increase its popularity.

When is the second season of the anime?

Although the anime’s second season has been confirmed, as of November 25, 2021, the creators have not yet shared an exact release date. The anime was announced for the first time in early 2020 and met with the audience in the last quarter of 2020. Based on this, we think that the second season of the anime will meet the audience in the spring of 2022. We will update here when an official release date is released. Till then we recommend you to watch Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero which is in the same genre.

What will happen in Season 2?

At the end of Season 1, we watched Selma preparing food for the kids and slimes. On Carla’s order, Callum closed the store. Eliaria, on the other hand, is unhappy because she has not yet bonded with the birds. Ryoma and Eliara talked about the upcoming fork in the road. Ryoma saw the birds coming and said he would pull back so as not to frighten them. But Eliaria insisted that he stay. Eliara took up her violin and, thanks to her music, was finally able to connect with the birds. Seeing this, Ryoma also started playing the guitar and he also bonded with a few birds. Eliaria gifted Ryomaya the ruby necklace she had inherited from her mother and said it would be a symbol of their friendship. Ryoma also gifted him two slimes. Now their paths are separated. While Eliaria goes to study at the magic school, Ryoma takes care of his own business. They agree to meet again after three years.

In the second season of the anime, we will watch Ryoma as a magician who has become more successful thanks to the abilities he has acquired. As the gods had said, new friendships and adventures await Ryoma. Eliara also improves step by step to become a magician. Ryoma searches for the best location for his new laundry store and profits a lot from his first trip on his own. As a result of this adventure, there will now be a new slime laundry of his. Upon his return, he will receive a letter from Eliaria. When he learns about the upcoming festival in town, Ryoma will make up his mind to set up a booth at the festival to sell delicious and unknown food and drinks. This season, we will also watch Ryoma as a teacher training young adventurers. He will teach inexperienced students how to deal with insects, how to set up a base, and how to use materials. We will also have a chance to watch Ryoma’s combat skills. The new season will be full of magic and fun.
