What is the plotline of the anime?
The anime’s main character is a little girl named Tanya Degurechaff, who looks cute at first sight and has blond and blue eyes. But this little girl is not as innocent as she seems. A very powerful sorcerer, Tanya is always at the forefront of the war with many countries, especially the republic, in the name of a fictional empire. Tanya is such a powerful sorcerer that she can destroy entire detachments with a single bullet. By the way, this life is Tanya’s second coming to the world. Tanya, who was a Japanese man in his previous life, was punished by this lifestyle for not believing in God. Caring for her productivity and her career, this little girl will become the most dangerous being among the imperial army’s wizards.
Will there be a second season of Saga of Tanya the Evil?
Studio NUT or any related company has not yet renewed the anime for a second season. The anime’s first season was released in 2017, and then we watched a sequel in 2019. These long periods are very common for animes and do not reduce the possibility of a new season as in other TV series. Although there is no renewal yet, it can be speculated about the new season when some main factors such as disc sales, popularity, resource material adequacy are examined.
Second season possibility in terms of “light novel”
The anime is based on the light novel series written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki. The light novel series published by Enterbrain consists of 12 volumes so far. It is also published in English by Yen Press. The light novel is still ongoing since 2013. The anime’s first season covers the first 3 volumes of the light novel. “Saga of Tanya the Evil: The Movie“, published on February 8, 2019, was adapted from the 4th volume. There are 7 volumes of source material left, and the remaining stock material seems quite sufficient for a new season. There is no problem in terms of stock material in creating a new season of the anime!
Second season possibility in terms of “disc sales”
Disc sales are essential for anime series to make a profit, and an anime is expected to sell at least 4,000 copies for the prospect of a new season. Although there has been a decline in disc sales in recent years, this figure is an average for the series to make a profit. A 3-volume disc was sold for the first season of The Saga Of Tanya The Evil. The average sales figure for the first season was 6,275. The disc sales seem to be above targets for sales. A sales figure such as this has brought a new season for most anime series.
Other factors to see a new season
Many video distributors in Japan have released the anime’s first season. Anime featured in U-NEXT, Amazon Prime Video, D Anime Store, Netflix, and FOD in Japan and also generated financial income from these distributors. The first season, with many financial benefits, could give the green light to a second season. According to the official anime website, Saga of Tanya the Evil movie box office revenue is 400 million YEN. This means he had good success at the box office. Besides, the anime’s overall popularity score is 93.2%. A second season with this popularity is very promising. We can see the evidence of this popularity score from the number of Twitter followers and Google searches. Besides, we would like to share that the smartphone game has been announced as another detail that will increase the new season’s possibilities.
Release date of the second season of Saga of Tanya the Evil?
The series has not yet been renewed for a second season. However, to summarize the evaluation we made above; The light novel provides enough resource materials for a second season. There is a financial success from disc sales and distributors. Popularity is enough, and NUT studio won’t say no to a second season for the most valuable anime in their hand. The chance of a new season of the series is 90%, but renewal is required first. If the second season is confirmed soon, the series may hit the screens in early 2022 for a new season. Considering the time between the first season and the film, this date seems most likely. We will update our article as official information and leak become available.
