Many of us have already started watching the new fantasy anime Isekai Cheat Magician, and those of you who found the current installment of the anime exciting are likely wondering whether there will be a Season 2.
Well, to be honest, Encourage Films Inc., the studio, which is responsible for the television adaptation is currently keeping silence on the subject of renewal. But we nonetheless tend to believe that Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 is due to happen because of numerous reasons that we are about to reveal below.
No doubt, some fans were reading the original light novel of the same name written by Takeru Uchida, which served as a source material for the Isekai Cheat Magician anime. The original light novel series consists of six books to date, while the last one was issued on June 25, 2019, on the eve of the TV series premiere. Isekai Cheat Magician Season 1 consists of only twelve episodes.
As a result, we're talking about a single-cour adaptation. We frankly doubt that the Encourage Films studio managed to include all the chapters of the light novel series available to date in the television adaptation. However, even if so, there remains at least one new volume of the light novel series, which might serve a source for a second television round.
Talking about the reception, which Isekai Cheat Magician has received from viewers, the anime looks average, given its score of MyAnimeList. In accordance with their metrics, Isekai Cheat Magician Season 1 holds a score of 6.25/10 based on over 6,300 votes. Finally, according to the information published on the official website of the anime, Isekai Cheat Magician Vol. 1 BD/DVD release is slated for October 2019. If we had the data about the BD/DVD sales, we might extend our forecast.
Summing up, Isekai Cheat Magician seems to be a mediocre anime, which has been praised by the target audience in general. Yet given that we have some new source material, we have every reason to believe that Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 is just a matter or time. The only question remains unsolved is when will the premiere?
Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, we don't rule out the possibility of renewal of Isekai Cheat Magician for another season, given the data presented above. We know now that the BD/DVD release is expected to hit the market this fall. As a result, Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 premiere couldn't happen this year in no way.
Therefore, we expect Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 likely next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the series. But still, if the Encourage Films studio managed to adapt all the chapters of the original light novel series available to date for the current television adaptation, the premiere might be shifted.
Takeru Uchida, the light novel author, releases two volumes twice a year. Since one new book is now available, we should wait at least until 2021 for new volumes. However, if another television adaptation requires four more chapters, the wait will be long.
In any case, we are tracking down the official Japanese sources on the subject of Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2, as well as a specific release date for another round. As soon as the required data emerge, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
