Diomedéa animation studio, which took part in popular anime such as Domestic Girlfriend and Aho-Girl, took part in the production of the anime. Licensed by Funimation, the anime found audiences all over the world. Now it is highly wondering that if the anime will have a second season. In the continuation of our article, we have compiled all the known so far.
What is the Plotline of ‘The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent’?
The Salutania people have lived together with Miasma since antique times. Miasma is a power that spawns monsters that cause worldwide destruction. When the knights in the Kingdom are no longer capable of fighting monsters on their own, the Grand Magus find a new solution. A holy virgin lady (Legendary Saint) must be summoned to destroy these frightening creatures, remove the black magic, and restore peace. Sei Takanashi, a 20-year-old office worker, is on her way home one evening after a busy workday when, due to magical power, she finds herself in an unfamiliar world.
When she composes herself, she realizes that she is in the Kingdom of Salutania and hears the Grand Magus mistakenly summon two Saints instead of one. Since the prince only needs one holy lady, he chooses the other summoned girl, declaring her a Saint, leaving Sei Takanashi alone on her own. Sei stumbles upon the Medicinal Flora Research Institute by chance. Here, research on herbs and potions is carried out. After learning about the institute and its features, Sei’s passion was rekindled. She opens a shop full of potions and cosmetics, and now her business goes very well. Sei is content with her new life. She even meets the Captain of the Third Order of Knights. However, besides all this, Sei does not know that her talent as a saint will have a big impact on her new life and change her story.
Will there be a second season of The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent?
The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent Season 2 has not been officially announced yet. Diomedéa or any company related to anime has not made a statement on a sequel. However, considering that the anime has just come out, we have a chance to see a renewal in the future. The new season decisions of animes depend on some main criteria. There is a 90% chance that an anime will receive a renewal based on this evaluation result. We examined the main factors such as popularity, light novel source availability, and disc sales.
Light novel compared to anime
As we mentioned at the beginning of our article, the light novel of the series is written by Yuka Tachibana and illustrated by Yasuyuki Syuri. The light novel published by Fujimi Shobo has been published since 2017 and has reached 7 volumes in total. In addition, Seven Seas Entertainment brings the series together with the readers in English. The first 4 volumes of the light novel, which consists of 7 volumes in total, were adapted to anime’s first season. The remaining unadapted part is 3 volumes. Considering the part adapted in the first season, there is not enough source material for a second season yet. However, there will be enough volumes for adapting in 2022.
Disc sales are important for anime as it also has a financial return. The anime sold 2246 discs in its first season. Considering this amount of sales, although it seems below the targets, it can be considered as average since disc sales in other animes during the year were also low. Still, we can say that it is low sales for an anime that aims for a new season.
Popularity is the most crucial part. Only very few of the animes get approval for the new season. It is not difficult to guess that the animes that received the new season approval are the most popular. According to Myanimelist data, The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent ranks 1483 in popularity, which is not a very good ranking. Its original Twitter account is followed by only 21,800 people, making the possibility of a new season very low. Finally, we do not see strong popularity in Google.

The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent Season 2 Release Date
The anime has not yet been renewed for a new season. However, before the official announcements, we evaluated the possibility of a new season. Considering the popularity of the anime, the possibility of a new season seems very difficult. Our personal opinion is that there will be no new season. Still, the anime world is full of surprises, and there’s always a chance for a new season with enough source material available. If the anime is renewed for a new season with surprise news, we may see a new season like the end of 2023 or 2024, considering the light novel status and production time.
What can happen in Season 2 of the Anime?
At the end of the season, Sei and her friends set off into a dying forest in Klausner’s Domain. It can also be called a paradise of precious medicinal herbs. The travelers were accompanied by knights and soldiers, so they thought they would easily reach there and get a victory. But they encountered slimes and monsters in the swamp and their plan was turned upside down. Sei took advantage of being a Saint and saved the situation. Thanks to her miracles, she restored the forest to its former strength.
In season 2 of the anime, we will be watching a lot of Sei’s interest in cooking. Upon returning home, she learns about the existence of imported coffees in this foreign world. She goes to a town that trades Sei’s products and deals with food stock in there. Where she goes, she heals an injured crew member and helps the captain of the ship. In return for this favor, she gets an ingredient with a taste that will satisfy her longing for Japan. She learns that the ship’s captain’s hometown produces the necessary products for the Japanese flavors of miso and rice. Sei starts working to grow these products herself. When she realizes that she can find the delicious tastes of Japan here, her interest and curiosity in this country increase. But things change when a foreign prince arrives as a student and starts researching.
