Of course, you have already watched Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest, the fantasy anime, which premiering this summer. And no doubt you are wondering whether there will be a Season 2 of the series. The current round of the anime consists of 13 episodes + 2 OVAs. To date, there has been no official confirmation of a Season 2, yet we tend to believe that another round of the series is due to happen.
The first thing we want you to pay your attention is that Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou is based on a Japanese light novel series of the same name, which consists of ten volumes to date. The 10th volume, containing four chapters + prologue and extra chapter, has been issued on June 25, 2019, on the eve of the series premiere.
As a result, even if the White Fox studio managed to adapt the entire light novel into just one television season, there remains at least one additional volume for another television adaptation. Yet we doubt that the studio used all the source material for a single-cour, 13-episode installment. But even in such a case, as mentioned above, we have a bit of new source material.
Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest Season 1 has received mainly positive yet average ratings from viewers, given the statistics presented by MyAnimeList. According to their data, Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 1 holds a score of 6.28/10 based on about 11,000 votes. But still, such reception from the target audience is quite appropriate for a further decision on renewal.
The BD/DVD sales of the franchise have yet to start. Of course, if we had such data, we might make our forecast more precise, yet it's clear for us that Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2 is just a matter of time. The only question we care of is when the 2nd season could come out.
Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above in our forecast, we don't rule out the possibility of Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest Season 2 since there is new source material, as well as given the positive reception of the debut season of the series. Let's now talk about the likely release date for Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2.
First, it's worth mentioning that the 1st OVA titled Yue's Diary is set to premiere on December 25, 2019. At the same time, the premiere of the 2nd OVA titled The Hot Spring Where Romance Blooms is slated for February 26, 2020. As a result, looks like we will have to wait for a while until Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest Season 2 appears on the TV screens.
Therefore, in the best case scenario, we might expect Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2 next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the anime series, right after the 2nd OVA premiere. In the worst, if the production on Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2 requires more time, the 2nd season premiere could take place not earlier than in 2021.
But still, we want you to take into account that the data above, which relates to the likely release date is only our forecast. In any case we are looking forward to any official news from the White Fox studio. That's why we are tracking down the Japanese official sources on the subject of Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou Season 2. As soon as the 2nd round of the series is announced and its specific release date revealed, we will update this section. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
