Machikado Mazoku (The Demon Girl Next Door) Season 2: Whether There Will Be Another Season?
Those of you who managed to watch Machikado Mazoku are no doubt concerned about the possibility of a Season 2 of the supernatural anime. Frankly speaking, J.C.Staff Co., Ltd., the studio, which is responsible for the production of The Demon Girl Next Door has yet to announce any news on the subject of renewal. In spite of this, we have every reason to believe that Machikado Mazoku Season 2 is due to happen, and below we want to share with you our opinion on the subject.
Of course, you know that Machikado Mazoku is based on a Japanese manga series of the same name written by Izumi Itoo. Currently, the original manga consists of five volumes. The exciting news is that the last one, vol. 5 has been issued on June 27, 2019, right on the eve of Machikado Mazoku Season 1 premiere. It would be fair to note that the fifth book couldn't be included in the current television adaptation in no way, and thereby at least one new volume is now ready for The Demon Girl Next Door Season 2, isn't it?
Even if the J.C.Staff studio included all the four previous books released between November 2015 and October 2018 in one television season, the new volume remained untouched. In such a case, have a bit source material for another round of the anime.
Also worth noting that Machikado Mazoku Season 1 was a success, given a response, which the premiere has received from the target audience. On MyAnimeList, The Demon Girl Next Door Season 1 holds a score of 7.22/10 based on approx. 2,200 votes.
The final point capable of affecting the decision on renewal is the commercial value of the franchise. Machikado Mazoku Season 1 is currently airing, and it's unclear besides how much episodes the 1st installment consists. Yet it's clear that the BD/DVD sales would start no earlier than this fall. Once we have some financial statistics of the media franchise, it would be much easier to predict the decision of the J.C.Staff studio on the subject of Machikado Mazoku Season 2.
In any case, all we can do now is just tracking down the official Japanese sources on the subject of any news about the future of the Machikado Mazoku anime. But since we don't rule out the possibility of renewal, it's time to talk about when will Machikado Mazoku Season 2.
Machikado Mazoku Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, Machikado Mazoku Season 2 is yet to be announced. However, we tend to believe that Machikado Mazoku Season 2 is due to happen, given the data presented above. So, in case of renewal, as usual, we have only two possible scenarios, how the further events might develop.
In the best case scenario, if the J.C. Staff studio has adapted only two volumes of the original manga into a television season, we have enough source material for another television adaptation. In such a case, we might expect Machikado Mazoku Season 2 premiere already next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the series.
At the worst, if the studio managed to include all the chapters of the four books into one television installment, it could take up to 2-3 more years for Izumi Itoo, the manga author to write and publish three more books, given the schedule how the author releases his works. In such a case, we will have to wait until 2022-23 or even more.
