Redo of Healer, also known as Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi, is originally a beloved light novel series in the dark fantasy genre like many other manga and light novel series in Japan. However, what made it popular worldwide and managed to attract as much attention as the manga series is the anime adaptation of the same name released in the winter of 2021. The light novel, written by Rui Tsukiyo, has been adapted into an anime by the TNK studio. Redo of Healer is one of the most valuable products of studio TNK, which has been making animations since the beginning of the 2000s. Licensed by Sentai Filmworks and thus gaining viewers worldwide, the anime originally aired between January 13, 2021 – March 31, 2021. The anime, which is also broadcast on many local networks such as AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS, SUN, and BS11, is intriguing in its second season. So will the anime have a second season?
“Healing sorcerers cannot fight alone.” Everyone knew so until things changed. Keyaru, the main character of Redo of Healer, is a healing magician who is exploited by others and suffered many assumed sexual abuse. But the real truth will not take long to realize. Keyaru will realize what power lies behind the healing magic and see this class is the strongest class in the world. Utilizing the Philosopher Stone and using her healing magic, Keyaru goes back four years. This is the heroic tale of a healing magician who had the opportunity to rebuild his life in the past.
Will there be a second season of Redo of Healer?
As of September 5, 2022, Light novel publisher Kadokawa or anime studio TNK has yet to renew the anime for a second season. The first season of Redo of Healer aired from January 13, 2021, to March 31, 2021. We are used to seeing a renewal for a new season in the season finale of beloved anime series. Unfortunately, Redo of Healer was not one of these anime. Animes can be renewed for a new season after many years. Considering the release date of the first season of Redo of Healer, we can say that it looks quite early for a new season’s approval. Official news is limited at this stage, but it is possible to speculate about a second season under some key factors. The decision committee responsible for anime renewals makes a similar assessment and draws financial conclusions. Therefore, it is possible to predict with a high probability whether the anime will have a new season. Let’s take a look together.
Light novel status of the anime
The original of the series, the light novel, is written by Rui Tsukiyo and illustrated by Shiokonbu. Redo of Healer Light Novel, which started being published by Kadokawa Shoten on July 1, 2017, has reached 9 volumes as of today. The series, which also has a manga adaptation, is still ongoing. It means more source material for the anime in the future, and it means more seasons are possible to see. Unfortunately, since the manga series does not have an English publisher yet, it is only published in its native language. Tsukiyo tweeted on January 23, 2022, that an overseas publisher had refused to publish the manga series in English. He added that this situation may change in the future.
For overseas. I've received several inquiries about buying the English version of "Redo of Healer", but it doesn't exist. We tried to publish the English version, but it was refused by an overseas publisher. The situation may change if many requests reach overseas labels.
We stated that the light novel contains 9 volumes at the time of writing. The light novel’s first 3 volumes have been adapted into anime in the first season. There are 6 light novel volumes that have not been adapted so far. Therefore, there is enough stock material to prepare a second season of the anime. In addition, the fact that there are non-adapted volumes is an opportunity for those who are curious about the continuation of the story before a new season and to find out what happened.

What about the disc sales?
BluRay and DVD sales are good data to see the popularity of anime in Japan. With the increase in digitalization and changing online video-watching habits, there has been a big decline in disc sales in recent years. However, it is still possible to compare other animes released in the same period and evaluate the popularity in Japan through disc sales. Animes usually sell 3-6 volumes of discs, and an anime is expected to sell an average of 4,000 units in order to be approved for a new season.
Redo of Healer sold a total of 3 volumes of discs. Redo of Healer, which went on disc sales in the winter season of 2021, managed to sell approximately 3k units in each volume. Although it seems below targets, it ranks 10th among 45 animes that aired in the same period. The anime, which has the same disc sales volume as Horimiya released in the same period, was far behind SK8 the Infinity, which sold 8,174 units. In the same period, Yuru Camp 2nd Season managed to sell 6,555 units, and Re:Zero Season 2 Part 2 sold 4,893 units. We cannot say for sure about the second season when we evaluate it in terms of disc sales, but we are not pessimists.
The popularity of the Redo of Healer
It’s important for the series to reach a satisfying community so that the anime can get a new season’s approval. The anime’s popularity score is 85.8% according to the Myanimelist ranking. This score is not bad compared to others on our anime list. On the other hand, anime has a perfect search volume on Google. The current search volume is almost on par with popular anime like Dr. Stone and Fruit Basket.
However, the anime’s Twitter page is currently followed by 23k people. This does not indicate a good social media popularity; we think it will increase in the coming days. The official Twitter page announced that the light novel has exceeded 2.5 million copies in circulation. The anime also has a serious impact on light novel sales. However, the anime is currently only streamed by HIDIVE and is not available on Crunchyroll and Funimation. If the famous anime streaming platforms also list the anime, its current popularity will increase.

Rui Tsukiyo gives hope to fans
Rui Tsukiyo is very active on Twitter, and he had said that if there is success in the disc sales, it could be a second season, and he hopes it sells more and more. His words caused fans to buy more discs. Although no great success has been achieved, Tsukiyo increases the possibility of a second season by keeping the possibilities on the agenda.
When is the second season of Redo of Healer?
The anime has not yet been renewed for a second season. However, as a result of our above examination, the possibility of a second season does not seem too far. Tsukiyo’s promising quotes, the source material availability thanks to the manga series and good enough popularity are factors that increase the second season’s hopes. It takes an average of a year to prepare the anime for a new season, but first, the decision committee should renew the anime for a second season. If there is a renewal soon, we can see the Redo of Healer’s second season towards the summer of 2023. We will update as more official statements are available. Till then, we recommend similar animes in the dark fantasy genre, Jujutsu Kaisen and similar animes. Stay tuned!
