The wait is finally over! The sequel of the highly-anticipated anime series, How Not To Summon A Demon Lord, is set to release in 2021. After two long years, How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2 has been officially renewed. As per speculations, the anime’s plot is about to get much more exciting than ever before. However, now that its production studio has changed, the new episodes would feature a different animation style. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
How Not To Summon A Demon Lord or Isekai Maō to Shōkan Shōjo no Dorei Majutsu originated as a light novel series back in December 2014. Within a few months, the LN series gained immense popularity, which led to the renewal of several adaptations. This includes a manga adaptation and an anime series. The 2018 anime attained a fanbase of its own and became a commercially successful project for Studio Ajia-do Animation Works.
How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2: Renewal Updates
With its unique story and animation style, the anime adaptation became a known name among otakus. It was appreciated by fans of the Isekai genre and critics from around the globe. Hence, the demand for a sequel increased with the passing of time. Luckily, after two years, the second season was finally renewed. The news was announced over the official social media accounts of the series. Moreover, the anime’s latest installment will be called ‘How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Omega.’
Change In Animation Studios
A few months ago, fans were quite afraid about the future of their favorite anime. The chances for the renewal of How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2 were dim because of its studio’s history. The animation studio of the first season, Ajio-do Animation Works, is infamous for not producing a sequel. Aside from a couple of shows, the studio had never renewed any of its anime for a second run. Hence, viewers were anxious that the same could happen to ‘Isekai Maou’ as well.
Fortunately, after a long wait, the second season of the anime was officially renewed. However, that only happened because the animation studios had been switched. Yes, Ajio-do Animation Works will no longer produce the sequel of the popular anime. As per the latest reports, Tezuka Production and Okuru To Noboru will helm the upcoming installment. Hence, as a result, the animation style of the series will be much different than before. Well, the change in studios is more likely to be an advantage for viewers.
What Will Be The Plot Of ‘How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Omega?’
Is there enough source material?
The Isekai Maou light novel series has been running since 2014. As of June 2020, thirteen volumes of the series have been published. Besides, the LN is still in the run and might continue for a few more installments. However, the anime adaptation of the books covered the plot of only three light novel volumes. This leaves around ten books for sequels of the anime. Hence, there is indeed enough source material for the upcoming set of episodes.
How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Omega is likely to pick up its plot after the third LN volume. Hence, it might feature the story of Volume 4 through 6. Based on the source material, Diablo and his cohorts would get involved with the political turmoil of the church. As a result, Diablo ends up in-fighting the dangers that are harming the kingdom. In the process, he accidentally rescues the high Priest of the Church of Celestials alongside Lumachina Weselia.
It turns out that she was being targeted for assassination by Gewalt, a Church Paladin. Although after an incident where Lumachina saves Gewalt, the Okama gives up on being a Paladin and ends up joining another organization. Later on in the story, we will get to meet new characters like Fanis Laminitus (a fiery magic gunner), a maid named Rose, and others. Keep an eye on this corner for more updates related to the plot of How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2.
