Not only in Japanese but the manga series has also been published in English as Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle by VIZ Media since June 12, 2018.
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 Renewal Status
An anime adaptation of Kagiji’s ongoing manga series Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle was first announced in Weekly Shōnen Sunday in September 2019. The adaptation was animated by Doga Kobo, the studio that has a great reputation for its anime releases such as Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun, Plastic Memories, and Himouto! Umaru-chan.
The show was premiered on October 6, 2020, and ran for twelve volumes before concluding on December 22 of the same year. During the airing of the television anime series, Doga Kobo has also released a few chibi shorts on the anime’s Twitter page from October 10, 2020, to December 24, 2020.
After the first season has ended, many of the fans who genuinely likes the anime are craving a sequel. So, what is the renewal status of Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2?
As of now, we haven’t received any official statements from the author or the studio regarding Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2. We don’t know whether there will be a season renewal or not. However, the series has not been canceled either.
Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2: Will it be possible?
As it has not been announced yet, many of the fans are wondering whether Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 will be possible or not.
In terms of source material, the studio will have more than enough of them for another run. The first season has only covered the first seven out of twenty volumes, and most importantly, the manga series is currently still publishing more volumes. The studio could easily make two or more seasons with the available source material. Not to mention, they have skipped a lot of chapters in adapting the first season, so it would be possible that the studio would cover the skipped chapters in the new season.
Moreover, the anime series was well received by many of the fans in the community. It has successfully received an astounding score of 8.01 in MyAnimeList and has gathered around 150k members on the same platform. Even in forums, many users have stated that they would want a second season so badly because they have enjoyed the first season due to the godlike comedy that the anime offers.
Last but not least, the official anime Twitter account has hinted several times about Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 in their tweets, which has sparked many of the fans’ curiosity.
What’s funny is that they have also tweeted a movie announcement on their official Twitter account, but fans were upset when they found out that the announcement was actually an April Fools prank.
Considering those things above, Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Season 2 would likely be possible. You can expect an official announcement sometime around this year.
