In Summer 2021, we do get a lot of isekai anime to choose from, and Spirit Chronicles is one of them. It falls under the action, adventure, drama, fantasy, and last but not least, romance genre with harem as its theme. Although Spirit Chronicles is considered as a generic isekai, it has successfully stood out in this season alongside How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom.
Spirit Chronicles is an anime that is adapted from the light novel of Yuri Kitayama under the same name, with Riv as the illustrator. It was first published six years ago on October 1, 2015. Just like most light novels, it shows its first-ever existence as a web novel on a well-known website for publishing novels called Shosetsuka ni Naro. The web novel has come to an end on October 30, 2020, with a total of 10 story arcs in 199 chapters. On the contrary, the light novel is still up and running, and is currently sitting on the 20th volume.
The studio that is responsible for adapting the greatest work of Yuir Kitayama as in Spirit Chronicles is TMS Entertainment, the name that you can find in several popular titles such as Dr. Stone, ReLIFE, and Rent-a-Girlfriend. Being the studio that took full responsibility for producing some of the great titles, it is assured that they have perfectly delivered on almost everything that you can throw at them, and Spirit Chronicles is no exception in that matter.
When is Spirit Chronicles Season 2 being released?
Spirit Chronicles was first aired on July 6, 2021, and has just ended with twelve episodes on September 21, 2021. As the last episode of the first season introduces us to a cliffhanger, many of the fans are craving to see the continuation of it. All they want is a sequel to the first season. So, when will Spirit Chronicles Season 2 be released in sequence to answer the request from the fans?
As for now, there are still no words coming out from the author nor the studio regarding Spirit Chronicles Season 2. However, there are a few things to note that can provide information on the current whereabouts of the second season.
1. There is a crowdfunding
First and foremost, there is crowdfunding for the Spirit Chronicles series. The goal of crowdfunding is set at 5 million yen, and surprisingly, it has received 152 percent more than the initial target. However, despite it being an over-achievement, it is still not enough for the making of the second season, but that doesn’t entirely mean that we will not receive Spirit Chronicles Season 2, as they also get extra funds from merchandise sales, streaming platforms, blue-ray and DVDs.

2. The availability of source material
Also, the light novel as the source material is way ahead of the anime. The anime has only covered around 5 volumes, while the light novel is already at the 20th volume as of now, and it is just doesn’t stop there, because there will be more volumes to come. With that being said, if TMS Entertainment decides to carry on a sequel, they just have to continue the story from the volume that the anime has left off.
At the end of the day, the information above does not guarantee Spirit Chronicles Season 2, but still, if you want to increase the chance of having a second season, you can help by purchasing the light novels or read it on amazon devices, just like a user on Reddit suggested.
