Wonder if it will be better. After ep 14 the anime was so boring..


The latest episode about diablo was quite good so i guess we can expect interesting stuff to come ahead when they show how diablo meets rimuru

In my opinion the adaptation changed about midway through the series. Instead of going into detail it became apparent that the anime was behind. In the end this one season caught of to around 5 years of manga and left a decent amount of character development in the later half. I am hype for the story but as a manga follower this hurts me...

Yeah they have so many sources from the novel so i was sure there will be a second season, but heck i am pretty surprised it's being announced so soon unlike what i've expected..

HOLY SH*T that was fast lol
Cool to know. Given the one year time frame, they have time to work with this.

A sequel to a 2 cour isekai is surprisingly rare nowadays so I hope they can maintain the steady and fun story. Haven't read the manga/LN but i'm already getting excited to see the storyline take it up a notch

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.

The announcement was done via ep.24 pre- screening event on Sunday

Just wondered about this. Well, that was expected.

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.

Not surprised, still super happy. I need more Ranga cuteness. XD

I'm so glad this is getting another season, I hope it'll get even better.

Ive read ahead and researched a bit and it gets much better at the end scene from 23 with the girl looking behind the tree it really starts alot and the show gets very very very interesting alot of stuff is revealed and alot of changes happen it gets really good honestly the 2nd half was dull but its good cuz what it built up is very important for the next season

Mar 17, 3:05 PM by zvrmss

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...

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.

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.



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


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.



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.

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?


It will be LN only because the manga is monthly.
