“Isekai Cheat Magician” is an anime in the isekai genre, known for action and fantasy. It’s based on a 2019 light novel of the same name. This anime instantly became popular during its initial release, but in a bad way. It has been labeled “just another Isekai trash”. However, people like myself who enjoy the same old Isekai junk are looking forward to Isekai Cheat Magician season 2.
Originally airing in Japan on AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS, SUN, TVA, and BS11, it’s also available on Crunchyroll and Animax in English. Encourage Films produced the first season, which ran from July 10, 2019, to September 25, 2019. Now, fans are eager to know if a second season is coming. Let’s revisit the series and explore Season 2 possibilities.

Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 Release Date & Status
The first season of the anime has a very low rating of only 5.47 on MyAnimeList. Most anime fans hate the isekai genre for its repeated and cliched plotlines.
However, every year, new isekai with unique concepts shut the mouths of these haters. Unfortunately, Isekai Cheat Magician was not one of those shows.
With nothing unique to go for, only hardcore fans enjoyed the show.
Now, you would think it would never get a renewal after such negative reviews, but that’s where you are wrong. The series actually got a special episode as a sequel in 2021.
Yes, two years after the initial release, we got a new episode. This gives hope to fans because, despite the bad reviews, it got a sequel episode. So, there is a good chance it might even get a new season despite everything.
However, the truth is that not many people even cared to watch and rate the special episode on MyAnimeList. Given such a response, I’d say it is very hard for Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 to be renewed.
If we are being extremely optimistic, then we can probably expect the sequel sometime around late 2024 or 2025. That said, at this point, there is no official announcement about Isekai Cheat Magician’s second season.
Y a-t-il suffisamment de matériel source pour une suite?
As previously mentioned, Shufunotomo published a light novel by Takeru Uchida that Nardack illustrated.
The light novel, which began on June 28, 2013, spans 15 volumes, with the latest released on October 29, 2021. The author went on a hiatus, so we didn’t get any new volumes in 2022 or 2023.
With an average of two volumes published annually (excluding the hiatus period), even after the anime’s first season, three more volumes have been released.
While the anime adapted five volumes from the light novel, there’s still ample source material for a potential second season since the light novel is ongoing.
Que va-t-il se passer dans Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2?
Three months since the Wennifix civil war’s end, Taichi and friends have led adventurous lives, defeating bandits and monsters. They tour the Gargen Empire, encountering a harassed inn-owning couple, whom Taichi assists.
In the Imperial City of Gargenia, Taichi meets four elves requesting help to solve mysterious earthquakes. Afterward, they invite him to their isolated island village, where Myura is the elven shrine’s maiden successor. A conflict arises regarding her role.
Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 follows Taichi’s investigation into the Imperial Knight Training Academy, aiming to uncover a dark truth and thwart a student threat. Taichi and Rin resume their student lives, engaging in school competitions, until a terrorist group disrupts their peaceful days.
Anime fans eagerly await Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2 to uncover the mysteries and adventures that lie ahead.
Quel studio animera la prochaine saison ?
Encourage Films is a pretty small Japanese animation studio that has been in the industry since 2008. The company has animated a total of only 18 shows so far.
This is the studio that adapted the first season of Isekai Cheat Magician and it’s sequel special episode on 2021. Even though fans are dissatisfied with the plot of the anime, the animation was decent.
So, if the series gets approved for renewal, there is a good chance that Studio Encourage Films will handle it once again.
Where Can I Watch Isekai Cheat Magician Season 2?
Currently, season 1 of the Isekai anime is available only on Crunchyroll. However, it is also possible to stream it (illegally) on other sites like BiliBili, which is a popular alternative to YouTube.
If we ever get a new sequel, we can expect the same platforms to add it to their libraries. Alternatively, you can also choose to buy the Blu-Ray disc set of the latest season from Amazon or eBay as well. This way, you can directly support the anime’s creators and also enjoy the show offline.
The first season was not welcomed warmly in 2019 when it first aired. On the contrary, it received a ton of hate. But despite that, it got a special sequel episode in 2021.
Given the pattern, we might get a sequel to Isekai Cheat Magician sometime in 2024 or 2025. But that’s just if we’re being extremely optimistic. Realistically, there is no reason to continue the adaptation, as it will only result in losses for the producers given the lack of a loyal fan following.
If you can’t wait for a second season that might or might not get released, consider watching these other underrated isekai gems.
