If the next adaptations are gonna be engaging and great as this first season I can't wait for more! The main characters are lovable ones, the main story is intriguing and the mysteries are catching you up each time after another. Also the quality of the animation, the music set, the top charming openings and endings,the good work of the seiyuus chosen and the fact that everything is set around nobility, historic age and poisonous threatening, can we ask for more? Because we even get fanservice and comedy with lighthearted moments too. Sincerely one of the best I saw in a while, I pray for this masterpiece kind of content every year, now that we received it, please continue delivering it, entertainment drugs are real, lol.

While I'm not familiar with the LNs this show is based on, I couldn't resist checking out how many volumes had been released by the time the first season of this anime reached its final episode, and how many of them were adapted. I was really surprised that 24 episodes adapted only the two first volumes. I mean, I'm not complaining, of course. Faithful and polished anime adaptation is always welcome to see; and the more source material to adapt, the better. It's just, I didn't expect so many volumes to be waiting for an anime adaptation, haha.

Of course, and why not. Been such a great adaptation after all.

Though if they'll go with 2 volumes per season again, there's plenty to wait for a LOT of things lol.

@Zefyris me to but it is indeed greedy to hope for now as they will need at least 3 more seasons for it. I am glad that we at least see Shisui in action and the ending of this story arc.

Fantastic news. Is it being greedy to hope that we will get several more so that the other important characters get introduced properly ? I want to see Enen, Chue and Yao, among others.

Maomao SLAY!!

I'm so hyped and I can't wait for more Maomao! This show has been amazing so far and it definitely deserves the 2nd season!

I'm so glad, excited and anxious, at the same time. I love Kusuriya no Hitorigoto - it's in my top 3 ever.

Also hope there will be more high quality anime like this one relased.

Thank god they did not stop here. Now I just hope it is another 20+ eps because next two LN volumes will adapt the remeining part of a big story arc we got teased here with Suireis machinations.

@RobertBobert, I hope for Frieren to get an announcement soon! I like it so much!!

Mar 23, 11:27 AM by Memore

Great. Now we just have to wait for Signs of Love, Sasaki to Pii-chan, Frieren and Shangri-La to announce their sequels. These are the shows that were the main discoveries for me during these seasons.

Mar 23, 11:18 AM by RobertBobert

Great news! It was inevitable. Hope that it will also have 24 episodes or more!

Mar 23, 11:14 AM by Memore

It's a weekend full of sequels and this is right up there among the best, if not the ultimate ~

So very pleased with this instant relief of more to come!
