@tsubasalover, how did you know that the anime is based on the manga series if the original source is the light novel?

Pretty surprised that a sequel was announced so soon, especially since the first season was 2-cour. Anyway, great news.

im not sure if its true, cuz i know some parts in anime are little bit different from manga and closer to novels.
but i also heard that they agreed not to pass manga in first season.
we need to find a reliable source .

Wow, this is probably the fastest 2 cour LN adaptation sequel announcement I remember. A one year frame should be good to give time for the production.

I hope they change the director, because I did not like their invented scenes of fanservice or how they treated the character of rimuru which was much more charismatic than this, I'm sure they did it so that it does not overshadow the other girls, it's equal to as they do in harem animes where the protagonist is always stoic and shy.

Sweet! I have been enjoying this show a lot (plus it's been awhile since 8-bit made a season 2 to their stuff; I think the last sequel of any of their shows was Yama no Susume s3).

Definitely looking forward to this.

Cool, though hopefully it's as good as S1's first half and not as weak as its second half.

Good to see this!
I’m not the biggest fan of Season 1 but the first half was certainly entertaining and here’s to hoping so will the 2nd Season.

Yes,knew it

This series is so popular and successful that it getting a second season so fast is not surprising at all

Now,seeing as they have pretty much covered the end of current published manga chapters,So the question is will the second season cover from LN only or will the manga would have published enough chapters by then for adaption?

Pass. Extremely disappointed with the second half of the season. It has been such a drag since the end of Ogre lord arc.

The only isekai sequels I probably would gonna watch: Oda Nobunaga, Hataraku Maou-sama! and Grimgar but they will never get any sequels.

By now, I am almost 100% certain that these isekai LNs are not for me. Some start strong then become dull (Slime, Konosuba etc.), some start with new ideas then become trainwrecks/utter garbage (Gate, SAO). Probably will never watch another one ever again.

I haven't watched this because I thought we would never get to see the whole story (similar to Re:zero) but now I might change my mind.

It will be LN only because the manga is monthly.

Re:Zero sold well, the problem is lack of LN material to adapt a second season.

While I do still like Konosuba (also Maou-Sama is sort of a reverse Isekai, like Re:Creators), I agree with the general feel.

Isekai LN is becoming the new Long-Running Battle Shounen, a oversaturated by common place tropes genre. Sad, because Rayearth, Digimon, and other, older Isekais, were very good in storyline and world building. Most important, they had the neat idea of youngsters MCs developing maturity and responsability after facing many hard trials together.

Now is mostly about otakus getting level 99 and 45865968909081792 skills in episode 1, and soloing things easily, all while getting an harem, despite having the personality of cardboard.

Wow this is amazing news. I expected a season 2 eventually but I thought we'd have to wait for years to let the manga get ahead.

Knew it would get a second season soon. Like many people before me said, the second half of the first season was weak, I hope it gets better from here on again.
I don't think I'm gonna watch this weekly again though...

Sequel announcement for a two-cour show before it even finished airing? I've never heard something like this. Really gotta watch it soon, must be crazy popular.

That, my friend, is such a great news !

It was kinda expected since since the anime worked nicely (did it boots LN / Manga / Goodies sellings though ?) and had a decent fanbase.
