Knight's & Magic Season 2 Pros and Cons
Knight's & Magic Season 2 is definitely going to happen, even despite the fact that the anime series differs from the original light novel. The first installment of Knight's & Magic concluded in September 2017, but the studio 8-Bit has yet to announce the renewal. The anime thereby went on a long hiatus, which is peculiar to other Japanese television series of the mecha genre. Nonetheless, the odds are high, and most likely we will see Knight's & Magic Season 2 in the foreseeable future because of numerous factors presented below.
First, the debut season of the anime consisted of only 13 episodes, the number which fits only to one cour. Secondly, the merchandising continued up to May 2018. Therefore, the franchise looks alive, even despite the fact that no more news have been published since this date. Next, the viewers were mostly satisfied with Knight's & Magic, given the statistics presented by MyAnimeList, 7.29 ~ 55,000 votes. Finally, Knight's & Magic has been ranked # 10 in the TOP of the BD/DVD sales, as of Dec 26, 2017, with about 3,000 items sold per week. For comparison, Made in Abyss, the anime series, which was sold with the amount of about 5,000 items per week, has been renewed for a sophomore season.
We were talking about the positive case scenario above, let's now talk about the cons. As we have mentioned above, the anime storyline significantly differs from the original light novel and manga series, and have already surpassed them both. So we faced now with a lack of the source material for another television adaptation. On the other hand, such circumstances may serve in favor of renewal since there might be a prequel. The anime kicks off rapidly and omits thereby the first volume of the original light novel series just in one episode. Next episodes surpass both manga and light novel. Therefore, we'd likely see a prequel neither a sequel, in case of renewal.
Summing up, Knight's & Magic looks promising, and the anime deserves another season, in our opinion. We are looking for the official announcement of Knight's & Magic Season 2. Yet the situation looks still foggy since there has been no official news on the subject. As soon as 8-Bit announces its plans for the future of Knight's & Magic, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
Knight's & Magic premiered on July 2, 2017, on AT-X. The anime is based on the light novel of the same name written by Hisago Amazake-no. A manga adaptation is published by Square Enix. AN anime adaptation consisting of a 13-episode season aired between July and September of 2017.
Knight's & Magic Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, we don't rule out the renewal completely, and even have given some facts that point out in favor of positive decision. As a result of the best case scenario, we tend to believe that Knight's & Magic Season 2 might start next January. We don't think that the premiere is possible this summer due to a production cycle. However, the 8-Bit studio could announce the renewal this fall. In any case, we are tracking down the official sources to inform you about the exact release date, in the case of renewal.
