Like most of its shows, Eight Bit made us wait for another fan-favorite anime. Knight’s And Magic Season 2 is currently trapped in a long hiatus for two and a half years. Well, it’s high time to wonder if the long-awaited animated series will be back on screens. So here’s everything you need to know.
Knights And Magic Season 2 is one of the most anticipated sequels to the anime mecha of recent times. However, Studio 8bit has not given any updates regarding its return so far. This anime is a great mix of realistic love stories and fantasy worlds. Therefore, viewers loved its first season, and now they are clamoring for a few more episodes.
Knights and Magic, aka Naitsu No Majikku, is a Japanese animated mecha action series. It is an adaptation of the mecha light novel series of the same title by Hisago Amazake-no. Studio 8bit produced the anime which lasted thirteen episodes. It was released on July 2, 2017 and ended on September 24, 2017. Since then, everyone has been anticipating its second season. So, will it ever happen? Keep reading to find out.
Knight’s And Magic Season 2: Status of Renewals!
In recent years, many rumors have run on the internet regarding the return of the anime. However, none of them turned out to be true. Fans of the acclaimed series are eagerly waiting for manufacturers to let slip a few details regarding the future of the sequel. However, despite all the requests, they remain silent and do not reveal any information. As things stand, they haven’t given the go-ahead to Knight’s And Magic Season 2 yet. Fortunately, they also didn’t cancel this series, which could give fans some hope to wait for this installment.
On the other hand, another reason that ensures the return of the anime on the screens is the spectacular performance of season 1. The series managed to pocket good reviews as well as sufficient popularity among otakus around the world. As a result, fans seem to be positive about his future without even knowing his renewal status.
Is there enough source material for Knight’s And Magic Season 2
Like several other animated series, this one follows its plot with a series of light novels. The serialization of this novel began in January 2013. While the LN is still running, no new volumes have been released since 2018. Author Hisago Amazake-no has published a total of nine volumes so far. Studio 8bit (Absolute Duo Season 2, Stars Align Season 2) has already sold out seven of these nine volumes in order to create the plot for the inaugural season. As a result, they don’t have enough source material to create Knight’s And Magic Season 2. This could as well be the main reason behind the delay in renewing the animated series.
Knight’s And Magic Season 2: Will the anime return?
The ratings and viewership of the first season of this anime mecha were excellent. It got a good score of 7.12 on MAL and also has several positive reviews on the same platform. Even after the three-year hiatus, the demand for the sequel is also quite high. However, the production studio does not have enough source material to produce it. The studio must therefore wait for the author to publish other chapters before renewing season 2 of Knights And Magic.
Although it is quite rare for studios to do this, 8bit (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3) could create an original storyline for the sequel. If this does not happen, it is likely that the creators will not renew the animated series until they get enough content to create its plot.
However, we promise to update this section as soon as producers announce the long-awaited renewal.
