All those isekai deserve an anime for making it to the top from the mountain load of isekai novels.

Arslan and magi, hope they will get new anime seasons soon.
Harems are garbage and should not exist.
So is the fate series.

Now that Madan no Ou to Vanadis' LN ended they should make a second season.
I mean rank 6 isn't bad at all for the final volume.
But I honestly don't know how good or bad the first anime season sold, so let's just wait and see.

Checked the ANN page about its home video rankings. Seems that before dropping off it sold around 2800 copies per volume. Those aren't "second season" numbers. Especially not now, when there's no ongoing source material to advertise.

I'm level on mal-badges. View my badges.

Actually how come Accel World never get s2. The light novel is still relevant and the BD sales of season 1 was very good. I think thats guaranteed profit.

Maybe the anime adaptation was not popular in japan or it didn't follow the light novel.

Yeah, I'm not very suprised about that tbh. So I better wait for someone to translate the LN till the end, wait for the english manga to release or just have to wait until my japanese is good enough to read raw.

Or you could keep submitting it to Seven Seas' monthly surveys and hope they pick it up.
