Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 Predictions
Anime has a similar story with other anime in the isekai genre. The series had signaled the second season with many question marks at the end of the first season. We cannot say he made a final. Everyone is wondering who that woman is. The dragon also disappeared; there was a vs. scene with the dragon in the opening, but we did not see such a scene in the first season; it is thought to be a shot prepared for the second season.
Our character is very strong but cannot use it fully. There is a lot more to learn and a lot of experience to gain. In the second season, he will slowly learn to control and improve his power. We have to wait for the second season for new adventures.
Will there be a second season of Isekai Cheat Magician?
At the time of writing, the anime has not yet been renewed for a second season. Neither Encourage Films, nor the publishers have mentioned any confirmation yet. This is a common situation for anime series. It mostly can take years to renew. The closest example of this is that the second season of “Is the Order a Rabbit?”, which the studio prepared for its third season, aired in 2015, and the third season came exactly five years later. Till an official announcement, we can speculate for Isekai Cheat Magician season 2.
Light novel compared to anime (main source material)
As we mentioned at the beginning of the anime article, it was adapted from a light novel written by Takeru Uchida and illustrated by Nardack. The light novel published by Shufunotomo is still ongoing today. This is good news because the anime’s main source material is the light novel. The light novel, which started to be published on June 28, 2013, consists of 13 volumes in total, and the last volume was released on September 30, 2020.
The light novel series has published an average of two volumes each year, and three more volumes were released after the anime’s finale. However, it does not cover all the volumes until the anime finale. The anime adaptation covered only five volumes of the light novel in the first season. The good news is that there are enough resources for a second season of the anime.
Season 2 Release Date
The anime is not yet renewed for a second season, but we are not pessimistic about seeing season 2. Lightnnovel provides enough resource materials. It is not possible to see Blu-Ray sales clearly, but the anime’s popularity score is 72%, according to our metrics. This score seems sufficient for a second season. If the series is renewed for a new season, we can see a new season in the summer of 2021. We will update when more official information becomes available. Till then, you can check out another beloved isekai anime, “Demon Lord, Retry!“.
