0

When talking about some of the best anime, the name The Misfit of Demon King Academy certainly comes to mind. Well, how could it not, it has all the things for a best anime fantasy like an OP (overpowered) main character, demons and magic. So now the big question that everyone is asking these days, is there really going to be The Misfit of the Demon King Academy season 2 in 2020?

The 2nd season is too important for fans as without it fans will never know what will happen to Anos next or who is going to be his next opponent as the mystery related to the previous fake demon is now finally solved. Then there is the thing about Anos’s lost fame that he needs to claim once more.

monstersandcritics

These and many other questions and stuff related to the story line will only be known when The Misfit of Demon King Academy will arrive. Or another way to learn about all these things is to read about it from the original source material. But what most anime lovers prefer is to watch though story unfold in form of animation instead of reading it.

Now the big problem with the anime is that The Misfit of Demon King Academy is to be announced officially. To be honest, we are not 100% sure if The Misfit of the Demon King Academy will have a green light for the 2nd season or not.

How to Figure Out If There Is Going To Be A “The Misfit Of the Demon King Academy Season 2”?

We have been watching anime series for quite a long time and picked up on key points as to why does an anime gets a continuation and why some are axed after their first season. We discover this by browsing through the anime’s main source material, its sales, and the popularity graph. All of these are the best ways to make an assumption if there is a chance for the anime’s continuation into 2nd season in the future.

Well, we did the same analysis with The Misfit of Demon King Academy in our today’s post. This is to say that if you like to know whether there will be a Season 2 in 2020, you need to continue reading this article till the end.

We will be presenting all the information we gleam through in 3 different and concise parts. The information will let us make an assumption if the fans can expect for The Misfit of Demon King Academy season 2 in 2020. Without any further wait, let us dive right into it.

Section I: Source Material Info About “The Misfit Of the Demon King Academy Season 2”:-

thecinemaholic

This is no secret that majority of anime we love to watch these days are all adapted from their already popular material sources. These material sources are mostly in form of manga, light novels, Manhwa, and games.

As for the matter of scrutiny here The Misfit of Demon King Academy; its material source is Light Novel.

We will be going through two main points in this part of our observation. Our first point is to know as to how many novels have been released of the light novel and also if the light novel is still ongoing. This is because in case of anime like The Misfit of the Demon King Academy, the series is still in its infancy and this could be a major booster for hopes of a Season 2.

The 2nd thing we would be observing is to check as to how many books of the light novel has been made use to adapt The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 1. Sometimes an anime gets a massive positive response from audience but the material source is not available for continuation. Common example of it is One Punch anime series which is still waiting on the release of the One Punch Man Season 3.

How many Light Novel/Manga volumes Does The Misfit Of the Demon King Academy have?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy, which was released in Japanese, has 9 volumes for its light novel. The light novel was also adapted into a manga and the serialization was carried out by Manga UP.

Is it in Continuation?

As for the answer to question is The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novel still ongoing, it is yes. The latest volume for the light novel was released back on 10th October 2020 in Japan written by author named Shu. As for the average release rate for this light novel, it is 3 volumes each year.

Which volumes of light novel have been covered for anime?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 1 of the anime covers the volume 1 to 3 of the light novel. The first season was released earlier in 2020. This concludes the fact that the story of The Misfit of the Demon King Academy 2nd season will start from the 4th volume of the light novel.

CONCLUSION:

Our conclusion of this section is that there are 6 more volumes of the light novel. These volumes will serve enough material for anime production team to come up with even the 2nd and 3rd season of the series as only 3 volumes were used for the first one.

Section II: Information about Sales & Profit:-

heraldjournalism

If we were to point out to one main fact that contributes into an anime not getting continuation is that the production committee failed to make enough profits. This is not an uncommon thing for ay anime to lose money because famous manga and light novel adaptation also lose money. Common example of it is the Tokyo Ravens and this is why there will never be the Tokyo Ravens Season 2.

An A-grade anime series such as The Misfit of the Demon King Academy cost upto 3 Million US Dollars for production and marketing.

So now we will be checking as to how well The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 1 did I terms of money. If the information is not satisfactory then it will be a big blow for the 2nd season’s chances to be produced. Few examples of anime that never made enough money for a sequel are the Goblin Slayer Season 1 and Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 1.

Blu-Ray sales:

The sales of The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 1 Blu-Ray are upto 2300 copies. This is a decent figure as it was gathered only after 1 week of the release and the anime will most likely have few hundreds more added to this figure. We will update this information for number of copies sold when the official numbers are finally out.

For an anime series to sell about 2 to 5 thousands Blu-ray copies is a great omen while considering that most money earned in 2020 was via online streaming. We were hoping for the anime’s season 1 to be close to this figure as 5000 sold copies is a major boost for plans of a sequel. Common example of this is Youjo Senki Season 2, which got a sequel after it sold about 7000 copies.

Light Novel sales:

The Volume 7 of The Misfit of the Demon King Academy was released back on 10th July, 2020 and sales are 15000 copies. S for the volume 8, it was released in October, so the actual figure for copies sold will be told later and it will certainly be a great boost for the hopes of a sequel.

For a light novel series to have 15000 copies sold without even an anime adaption is a very great thing. We are hoping that The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 1 will actually give a boost to the sales of light novel copies. Anything closer to 35000 copies is a great omen and anything less than it would be a major hit.

Merchandise:

Thinking about the impact of the merchandise on the hopes for season 2 is too soon as the season 1 just ended. As of this moment, there are 2 figurines as well as 70 other pieces from the anime in sale. We think that this merchandise will increase to 5 to 10 figurines and 150 to 200 other items and will contribute for the anime’s next season’s production.

We are not hoping for The Misfit of Demon King Academy t hit the numbers like Konosuba which has 90 figurines and 1000 other goods. But if it happens, it is great. Also, there will be a Konosuba Season 3 due to its increased merchandise sales. If The Misfit of Demon King Academy can reach even 20 percent of this number, the prospect for Season 2 look bright.

Above stated things are only few of the main ones that contribute for chances of an anime’s sequel. Few examples of it include the web radio, various collaborations, Ending & opening songs, OST, International license for streaming on Funimation and Crunchyroll and others.

CONCLUSION:

To conclude this section, it is not right to judge these sales but they are still average. There series don’t seem to have lost money but it also couldn’t make profit as far as we can observe. It is a few months too early to tell if the anime is doing well or not in terms of money.

Section III: Information on Popularity of the Franchise:-

financerewind

Now we will take a look as to how popular this series truly is and how much popularity did the anime contributed to it. For doing this we will be looking at its official website the good trends, print copies, newly released merchandise, and social media.

We expect the popularity graph of the series to be at its high since the anime ended a short while ago. Things will get interesting when we will check this popularity graph net year and determine how well the series is in terms of popularity. Quite often, it only take a period of one year for the fans and even the production committee of the anime to lose interest in it.

Social Media:

The official website for the anime was updated only a few ago. The update was about the Line stamp of the anime. As for twitter account of the series, it has over 750K followers and new tweets arrive each day about the future of it.

Google Trends:

Even before the season 1 concluded, the popularity of it was on the peak. The peak was at its episode 2 and after that it saw a gradual decrease. But interestingly enough, this popularity got a boost at the final Episode 10l. Now the popularity is standing at the 40 percent of its peak.

Light Novels:

There are about 1.6 million print copies of The Misfit of Demon King Academy at the moment. With the release of its latest volume, this number is increased by 300000 more.

New Merchandise:-

Also, the marketing team of the franchise announced new merchandise releases this month. That was an expected thing as the anime has recently finished. Most anime series release new merch when an anime is ongoing. The information about the sales of merchandise will only be elaborate after one year as passed.

New merchandise release is a good omen for a franchise’s popularity.

CONCLUSION:

In our opinion, the popularity will be clear after one year has elapsed. The most important thing to consider now is how the end of the season 1 is impacting on the chances for a sequel.

Is there going to be “The Misfit Of the Demon King Academy Season 2”:-

world-wire

The franchise sales are on average and are not quite exceptional. It is too soon to predict about the release of The Misfit of the Demon King Academy season 2.

A better estimate can be made after 1 year has passed. We might get lucky and the sequel gets announced even before we update it next year.

The update will be made to this article next year to let you guys know if anything about anime has changed or not.

Is There Really Going To Be “Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2” in 2020?

Kenja No Mago or also known as Wise Man’s Grandchild is one of the best and well-watched Isekai series in the last years. If this is true then why there still isn’t any Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 yet?

Without the 2nd season of the Wise Man’s Grandchild, we can never learn as to what happens of the relationship of Shin and Sicily in the story ahead. These and many other questions can only be answered with either a Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 or by reading the original source material. Well, if you decide to read the source material, there is another problem. This source material is not yet available in English translation. So what we can all hope for is that production committee green-lit the Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2.

But with this another problem arises and that is there is no official announcement about Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2. Also, we are not sure if the Wise Man’s Grandchild will be green-lit for future productions in 2020.

Figuring Out If There Will Be “Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2”?

Still, fans do not need to worry, as we have a way to deduce possibility for a sequel of an anime series. After watching hundreds of animes throughout our life, we came upon this method. The method works pretty well s it is based on analyzing information like popularity, source material and sales of an anime franchise. We took that same method and applied it for Wise Man’s Grandchild.

So, if you guys are interested in finding out possibility for Wise Man’s Grandchild sequel season, we advise you to stay here.

Source I: Material Information for “Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2”:-

blogtobollywood

Source material is the most important thing for any anime series much less a popular one. Anime are usually an adaption of an already existing source which can be manga, light novel, visual novel or game. As for the Wise Man’s Grandchild, the source material for it is Light Novel and even its manga is fairly popular in Japan.

With our method, we will first need to confirm few things. First of this will be to see if the story is still in continuation and how many of the light novel volumes have been released. If the satyr has already reached its end, the chances for sequel seem little as we experienced with Air Ger Season 2.

The 2nd thing we will examine is how many of the light novel volumes have been used in making of Kenja No Mago Season 1 as well as how any of them are available for a sequel season. If the source material is not enough, it can easily take the franchise few years for a sequel like in the case of No Game No Life Season 2.

How many volumes of are there?

At the moment, there are 13 volumes of the Wise Man’s Grandchild Light novel and all of them were released in Japan. A manga series is also based on Wise Man’s Grandchild’s light novel.

For the Wise Man’s Grandchild manga, it has 14 published volumes with last one published back on 10th July 2020.

Is it still ongoing?

The Wise Man’s Grandchild light novel is still in continuation with latest volume released in Japan by author Tsuyoshi Yoshioka back on 30th September 2020.

This author has written 2 volumes of Ligt novel from year 2017 till 2019. As for 2020, he has released one book this year and has plans to release one more alter this year.

Which light novels does the anime cover?

The first season of Wise Man’s Grandchild aired back in 2019 which overs the volumes 1 to 3 of the light novel. This means that story for the Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 will start from the volume 4. This leaves nearly 10 books. This much source material can easily provide not only for Season 2 but for Season 3 as well.

CONCLUSION:

To conclude this section, we can say that the source material is enough in the light novel to give at least 2 of these great seasons. This ends the worry of source material being not enough for amine adaptation.

Source II: Information on Sales & Profit for “Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2”:-

honeysanime

A one-cour anime series on level of Wise Man’s Grandchild cost roughly upto 3 million dollars. This might not seem that much amount of money but the problem is the returns on this investment are not high in many cases.

It is also a normal thing for an anime sequel to lose money after its first season. One such example is Noragami, which lost money and there is still no news on Noragami Season 3. So, this makes Sales & Profits a great influencer for chances of an anime’s sequel.

Blu-Ray sales:

The Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 1 was released in Japan on 3 blu-ray disks with average sales being 900 copies for each disk. Any popular anime which sells copies below 1000 figure has a tough time for getting a sequel.

However, these blu-ray sales do not matter anymore as the big chunk of revenue now comes from online streaming. On the other hand, we do not think, anime like Wise Man’s Grandchild would do well on streaming platforms. Unless this anime is One Punch Man, which is a big hit and fns eagerly wait across the world for One Punch man Season 3. So for Wise Man’s Grandchild, it needs to do well in terms of Blu-ray sales to get go-ahead for a 2nd season.

Light Novel sales:

We took a look at the light novel sales for the previous 12 volumes. They sold on average 15000 copies per volume. As for the latest 13th volume, it had a sale of around 13000 copies. So, obviously, the light novel sales for this year are not that great so far.

For a series like Kenja No Mago, selling anything below 200000 is unfortunate especially if there as anime adaption of that light novel. For the possibility of a sequel, that series should at least sell print copies near a figure of 40K to 50K for each volume.

Even some older Isekai series such as Accel World sells around 50K copies per volume but still hasn’t any new s about Accel World Season 2.

Manga sales:

The volume 13 of the Wise Man’s Grandchild manga series sold about 65K copies during its first week of release. As for volume 14, it recorded a sale of 100K in the first week. This means that as far as manga slake goes, they are doing great. The reason people love to read the manga story of the Wise Man’s Grandchild is because it is more illustrative to grab attention of reader. These manga sales are OK but if the light novel could sell as many copies then future of Wise Man’s Grandchild is all set.

The sales for the Goblin Slayer manga series are also same to Kenja No Mago. So, we can expect a little hope for Goblin Slayer Season 2.

Merchandise:

There are 3 figurines at the moment available for the Wise Man’s Grandchild franchise but they are all of the character Sicily. Other than that, franchise also released 40 merchandises. This much merchandise and figurines is a decent for an anime which only had 1 season.

While these figures are decent, they are still not that much for an anime that is looking for a sequel. Also, these numbers do not seem to increase in 2020 and there is no news on new merchandise items.

Game:

Good news for the franchise is that they have released news about a Kenja No Mago game for 2020. Well, we dug into that and found that it is still waiting a release date. So when it releases, we will update the numbers.

In some cases, mobile games based off an anime usually pay off the budget for the sequel’s production. Fine examples of it are Konosuba Season 3 and Overlord Season 4. The game is only available in Japanese.

All of the stuff that we explained above is what offers the most revenue for an anime series. Other than that, there are many other streams for little profits for a franchise. Some of them are OST tracks, sales for the opening & ending songs, web radio, streaming licenses for Hulu, Funimation and Crunchyroll.

CONCLUSION:

The sales for the anime series is not that high; merchandise release and manga sales are also no that bright. Still, combing all of it, it gives off a decent figure. If the mobile game releases soon and performs well, there could be an improvement in chances for the Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2.

Source III: Information on Popularity of “Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2”:-

uncutdaily

In most cases, when an anime is not that of a hit, there is no point in making its sequel season. This is what happened in case of Tokyo Ravens and why it is still waiting for Tokyo Ravens Season 2.

Any sense for Kenja No Mago to have a 2nd season can be made if it has a decent popularity and fan following across the globe. So this section will cover the current popularity graph of the franchise.

With this, we will be examining the official website for Wise Man’s Grandchild, its social media activity, Google trends, number of print copies and new merchandise release.

Social Media:

The last update made on Wise Man’s Grandchild official website was back in December of 2019. This update was about the rebroadcasting of the first season. As for the official twitter account of the franchise, it has 15K followers and the last tweet was made in May of 2020. This tweet was about the free streaming of first season on Abema.

Google Trends:

The popularity of the Kenja No Mago was at its peak back in 2016 when the first episode aired. The popularity was the same as Konosuba Season 1. The bad news about it is that the popularity started dropping after the 2nd episode. And by the end, this popularity was almost half of what it was at its peak. Now it stands at what it was before the anime release.

Light Novels:

As of November 20220, there are about 5.5 million print copies of Wise Man’s Grandchild light novel in circulation. There was then an increase of about 400K more copies.

Merchandise:

For 2020, no new merchandise release has been heard. No new merchandise items or figurines are currently being produced from what we could learn online. Well, the world is going through some tough times and things might get better next year.

CONCLUSION:

With the news about the new game relapse, steady light novel and manga sales after every few months, the social media activity is great. This all looks good for popularity of social media. We think that next year, it will be much easier for us to tell as how many fans are there for this franchise.

The Big Reveal for “Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2”:-

animeuknews

If anything that can make us say that there is hope for Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2, it is the great manga sales, decent number of cool merchandise, and the news about a mobile game.

These manga and merch sales might not be that great, they are still better than nothing. If the profits increase due to mobile game, we can say that Kadokawa might be interested in a sequel for Kenja No Mago.

Anime are usually a promotion for source material and they certainly do not have their mobile games. But if a franchise is announcing a mobile game, it is a good omen for the overall future of a franchise be it source material, merchandise sales, or animes adaptations.

We will be updating this article soon next year with updates that are offered online. In the mean time, check out other news about some great anime series.

Among the many shounen series of the Supernatural genre, Noragami is definitely one of the very best. What makes it an amazing series of its genre is it adds a certain slice of comedy in it. With having all these great features, we are still stumped at the question; why there still isn’t the Noragami Season 3 in 2020.

Without the release of this Noragami Season 3, not only us but other die-hard fans will never be able to know when and if Yato is having is million worshippers to give him his grand shrine. We will also never learn if Yukine and Hiyori are going to be with each other or not. These and other questions like these can only be answered by reading the Noragami manga series. Still, most anime lovers won’t be doing this as watching anime is more satisfying than reading it. And the fact the Studio Bones did an amazing job of adapting it into an anime is the main reason countless people are willing to wait for Noragami Season 3.

Figuring Out If There Will Be “Noragami Season 3”?

Watching hundreds of anime series over the last decade, we have come to now of a method to deduce the possibility for a series’ sequel or if the project is going to be abandoned. This method makes use of information from the source material to popularity to sales & profits of the series. Gathering this information and analyzing it gives a 95 percent accurate guess for a series’ to either have a  continuation or not. So, if you are eager to learn whether there will be Noragami Season 3 or not in future, we advise you to continue reading.

Source I: Material Information for “Noragami Season 3”:-

thenationroar

No this not much of a secret to die-hard anime fans that most animes these days are based off their existing source material. This source material is usually popular for many years before it is adapted into animation form. In most cases, this source material is in forms like mangas, light novels, visual novels, and games. As for the series at hand, Noragami, this source material is the manga. So what we will be checking is the status of the Noragami manga.

We will be examining how many manga volumes for Noragami have been released in these last couple of years and if the manga franchise is ongoing or not. If the story is already ended or is reaching the end, the franchise would have a hard time getting a green-lit approval for Noragami Season 3. There is also the scenario where the series can be in its beginning phases like Classroom of the Elite and why there is hope for Classroom of the Elite Season 2.

The next thing we will be checking is to how many of the manga volumes have been used to make the first 2 Noragami seasons. There are cases when an anime series tends to sue all of the available source material into its anime form such as No Game No Life Season 2.

How many volumes of Noragami manga are there?

As of November 2020, in Japan, there are around 22 volumes of the Noragami manga series. This franchise also happens to have 2 separate spin-off manga series. The first spin-off is about the God named Yato having the encounter with the society called “Noragami: Stray God”.

As for the 2nd spin-off series, it is named Noragami: Stray Stories. It only has one volume and is currently on a hiatus.

Is it still ongoing?

For fans, the good news we have is that the manga story is still in continuation. Its latest volume no. 22 created by author named Adachitoka back on 17th June 2020 in Japan. The author only wrote one volume for 2017 and 2018. In 2019, he wrote 2 volumes but for 2020, it seems like he is again going with 1 volume release.

Which manga volumes does the anime cover?

The Origami Season 1 was aired back in 2014 which was an adaption of 1 t0 3 volumes of the manga series. As for the Noragami Season 2, it covers the volumes 4 to 9. Meaning there are still at least 10 more volumes left for production team to adapt into a third and even 4th season.

CONCLUSION:

To conclude this section about source material, we would say that the franchise has enough manga volume to make 2 more seasons. Also, adding he fact that the manga series is still in continuation, this increases the prospects for Noragami Season 3 happening in future.

Source II: Information on Sales & Profit for “Noragami Season 3”:-

thenationroar

Making an anime is not a cheap business and certainly not for a one cour anime like Noragami. A series like this can cost upto 3 million dollars. And the whole point behind making an anime series is to rake in the profit for investors rather than making fans happy. So the chances for a sequel anime season are based on how well the previous seasons performed.

With this in mind, we will now be checking to see how great of a job 2 previous Noragami seasons did in terms of sales & profits. This is because, most anime franchises do not get past 1st or 2nd season as they failed to earn substation amount of profits to fund future of the franchise.

A good profit drop in a sequel season is around 25 percent compared to the previous season. An example of it is Konosuba and why there is hope for Konosuba Season 3.

Blu-Ray sales:

The sales of the blu-ray disks for first season of Noragami were about 5000 while for season 2, they were at 2000. Also, its first season had a BD box released in September of 2015 which had a sale of around 500 boxes.

This is more than a 60 percent dip on the sales of the BD box as compared to blu-ray disks. Still, as we have said again and again, blu-ray and BD sales do not matter for a future of an anime an longer. The reason is the main money is now in the streaming platforms.

Manga sales:

We decided to first go through the sales of the penultimate manga volume of Noragami; volume no. 21. It had a sale of about 120K copies. As for the latest volume no. 22, it had a sale of roughly 48K in its first week of release. After that the numbers are only increasing at a slow pace so we will update them after they are final.

Back when Noragami volume 12 was released, it was selling around 300K copies per volume. But now with each passing volume, these sale numbers are dropping. Same was the case for Accel World manga and this is why there is no news yet on Accel World Season 2.

Merchandise:

This was quite depressing to learn that Noragami only has 4 figurines for its characters like Yato, Iki, Hyori, and Bishamon. We were so shocked that we double checked this figure and it was still 4.

Well, it is still more than what Tokyo Ravens had, which is big fat 0. Still, for a mid-tier shounen manga series like Noragami, with a great fan following, we were hoping this number to be 10. However, they do have 450 different merchandise items, which is an acceptable figure. Now the problem of this figure is that these numbers are mainly from Season 1 release and that is 80 percent of them. The 2nd season only released 20 percent of these merchandise items.

All the things we have stated above are the main things we take into consideration for sales & profits. Still, there are more but we cannot exampling all of them here. Other ways for an anime franchise to earn money is via Soundtracks, opening & ending songs, international streaming licenses for Hulu, Funimation and Crunchyroll, and other collaborations.

CONCLUSION:

What we can see from this section is that Noragami Season 2 performed way worse as compared to Season 1. There was a drop of about 50 percent in sales & profits. Even its manga is performing badly with each passing volume release; almost half of what it used to do.

Source III: Information on Popularity of “Noragami Season 3”:-

atlsci

For Noragami Season 1 to have its 2nd season, it is safe to say that it was quite popular. But if Noragami Aragoto is not popular, what would be the point in making the Noragami Season 3. To better know the chances for 3rd season happening, we will be taking a look at the franchise’s popularity after Season 2.

If the popularity is holding up like Overlord and why there will be Overlord Season 4, we can’t say that the same will be the case for Noragami.

What a series’ popularity means is how active it is on social media platforms and how fans are reacting to it. This means examining the series’ Google trends, social media activity, official website, number of print copies, release of new merchandise and other such stuff. This will allow us to understand the recent popularity percentage of Noragami in 2020.

Social Media:

The Noragami series’ official website had the last update back in September of 2019. This update was news of rebroadcasting of the Noragami Season 1 and Noragami Season 2 aka “Noragami Aragoto”. The official twitter account of the franchise has upto 107K followers. The last tweet on the account was made back in December of 2019 and was about the same rebroadcasting news.

Google Trends:

The one plus point for Noragami, we could gather from Google, was that the 2nd season was much more popular as compared to first season. We were thinking it to be opposite as the sales of 2n season were half of the first season.

The current popularity for this franchise is at 15 percent of what it was back at its peak in 2016 for 2nd season.

Manga:

Fans might find it interesting to know that the author of Noragami is not a single person; instead it is 2 female mangakas. Also, one these authors are having serious health issues. This is the main reason why the release rate of the manga is so slow for these last few years.

We tried to gather information about total number of print copies for Noragami manga but alas, we never did. A good estimate for a series like Noragami is to have 5 Million+ copies.

Merchandise:

Back in 2016, the Noragami series was having its steady release of the new merchandise items. But after 2017, the release rate has gotten really slow with only few merchandise items making it to stores. Some of these items include phone cases. As for 2018 and 2019, there was almost nothing released or announced. On a recheck in 2020, we found that this year too, there was new merchandise release.

CONCLUSION:

From the standpoint of popularity, it is nowhere close to where it was at its peak and the sales have drop by 50 percent too. No new merchandises have been lased and coupled with slow manga lease rate, this popularity is also lacking.

Why is there no news about Noragami Season 3?

After doing all the research, we believe that there are two reasons for this. The first and foremost is that the Noragami 2nd Season was not recovered well and this also led to a decrease in manga sales.

As for the 2nd reason, it might because one of the female authors of the franchise is ill. This led to even a one-year long break for the manga series and it never got its popularity back from then on.

The Big Reveal for “Noragami Season 3”:-

entailinfo

So to sum all of this up, we would say that for the next few years or at least 2 years, there will be a minuscule chance for the release of Noragami Season 3. The studio that gave us the first 2 of these seasons is currently working on another series My Hero Academia Season 5 for year 2021. So, yes there is little doubt about Noragami Season 3 happening in 2021 much less in 2020.

Among the many of the great Isekai series with amazing animation effects and great art; No Game No Life is certainly one of the best. With all the great aspect of a great anime, the question that has been bothering us for quite some time is why there still isn’t No Game No Life Season 2.

Without the release of the No Game No Life Season 2, fans will be in dark about the questions like Shiro and Sora’s battle with other races and if they can both challenge and defeat Teto; the God of Games. The only other way to learn of these answers is to read the source material of this anime series. In this case, this source material is a light novel but fans still prefer to watch the anime format of the story.

thelivemirror

Now, although, the fans are willing to wait for the release of 2nd season, there is a problem at hand. There isn’t actually any official news about the release of even production of No Game No Life Season 2 in 2020.

Figuring Out If There Will Be “No Game No Life Season 2”?

As you know by now that we happen to be an anime freak of the sort who loves to watch animes all day long. Watching these anime series gave us kind of a method that help us deduce the chances for any anime’s sequel. This method is not simple intuition but based on a comprehensive analysis. Our method takes into consideration the source material info, the profit & sales of the franchise, and the popularity of the franchise among the general audience. The method offers a rough estimate if there will be a new season of an anime series or not in near future.

We took this very same method of ours and applied it to No Game No Life Season 2 release date. The information is presented down below in 3 easy to understand parts. So, without waiting for anything else, let’s get onto it.

Source I: Material Information for “No Game No Life Season 2”:-

financerewind

This is now not that much of a secret that majority of the anime series these days are based off some source material. And this source material happens to be in existence for quite a number of years at least. These source materials can vary in form as they include mangas, light novels, visual novels, games etc. as for the series at hand, No Game No Life; its source material is Light novel.

What we will be doing is checking as to how many of the volumes for this light novel have been released so far. Also, we will check if the story is still continuing in the light novel. If the story has ended then there might be only a little chance for series to have a sequel anime season. The story can also be in its early stages which can increase the prospects for a sequel season like Classroom of the Elite Season 2 that is very much a possibility.

Now what is left to figure here is how many volumes of the No Game No Life light novels have been used in the first season’s adaption. In some cases, an anime series tends to reach the source material. A common example is One Punch Man, which is waiting on One Punch Man Season 3.

How many volumes of No Game No Life are there?

The No Game No Life was released in Japan and it currently has 10 volumes for its light novel. The No Game No Life also has 2 separate manga series based on this light novel series. The first manga series covers the first 2 volumes of the light novel and is telling the story exactly as in the books. As for the other series, that one’s a spin-off series.

Is it still ongoing?

The good news for fans here is that No Game No Life is still ongoing by its author “Yuu Kamiya”. The latest volume got released by publishing house “Clockwork Planet” back on 25th January 2018. The author wrote only 1 book for year 2016 and year 2018. It seems that if like 2019, he still has no plans to write another book for the light novel series.

Which light novels does the anime cover?

The No Game No Life Season 1 aired back in 2014. It was adapted from the light novel volumes 1 to 3. There was also a movie release of the franchise by the name “No Game No Life Zero” which covered the entire volume 6 o the light novel. This tells us that the story for the No Game No Life next season will start from Volume 4.

CONCLUSION:

We conclude from our analysis that there are still 6 more volumes of the light novels that have not been adapted into anime. These volumes are enough to give fans at least 2 more season or 1 season and 2 movies. The bad news here is that of the last 2 years, the author has been on a long hiatus. He has not released a single book for the last 3 years.

Source II: Information on Sales & Profit for “No Game No Life Season 2”:-

heraldjournalism

If there is not enough profit earned from the release of an anime’s first season then the investors would lose interest in going ahead with it. It makes sense and this has happened before like in the case of wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2. This series could not make enough profits and it looks hard that it will get a sequel.

Any great anime series takes around 3 Million dollars for its making. No Game No Life is a highly popular series that nearly cost around 4 million dollars to make its first season. So in this sale & profit section of our analysis, we will see profits from both the season and the movie release. If the movie performed average or poor on the box office, it could negatively affect the chances for a sequel happening. An example of it is Goblin Slayer Season 2 which is not going to happen due to the movie bombing on box office.

Blu-Ray sales:

The anime was released in Japan on 6 disks and each of them was sold for an average of about 9000 copies. This series also got its BD-box which was released on 24th February 2016 and had a sale of about 1000 copies. Any anime series that gets to around a sale of 10000 copies, it has a great chance for having its sequel. Well, that is unless that series is Accel World, which despite its amazing sales numbers is waiting on news about Accel World Season 2.

Light Novel sales:

The No Game No Life volume 9 of the light novel was released back on 25th August 2016 and had a sale of about 160K copies. As for the latest volume 10, it was released back in 2018 with a sale of 170K copies. These numbers indicate that light novel sales are not the main moneymaker for the franchise. Still, they are outstanding numbers which makes it to be in list of Top 5 Best light novel sellers for each volume. These numbers are on par with highly popular novels like Overlord and everyone is sure about Overlord Season 4 happening.

Merchandise:

No Game No Life has 40 figurines available with majority of them of the characters Siro, Jibril, Stephanie, Shiro, and Izuna. The franchise also has 500 other minor merchandise items like a tapestry, mugs, shirts, towels, etc.

The merchandise sales are doing quite well in Japan as well as in the world. A big part of revenue comes from merchandise sales and this gives us hope for No Game No Life Season 2. The release of the movie also helped to boost these merchandise sales which normally doesn’t happen.

We are even surprised to know that even in 2020; lots of figurines for the series are being made. It has been 3 years since the last light novel volume and movie release but in 2020, the franchise released 6 new figurines.

No Game No Life Movie:

The movie of the franchise No Game No Life Zero did a box office business or about 700 million Japanese yen or around 6 million dollars. This film also had a sale of approximately 40000 blu-ray disks in Japan.

Even the production company Kadokawa would not have expected this much business on a budget of 1.5 million dollars. The chances for Konosuba Season 3 also increased after the successful movie business. So, we can say the same for the No Game No Life Season 2.

The things we said above are only few of the main ways for an anime franchise to earn its revenue. Other than that the few notable ones include revenue from OST aka soundtracks, opening ending songs, International streaming license for companies like Yen Press, Sentai, Crunchyroll & Hulu, and many other collaborations.

CONCLUSION:

One thing we are sure of is that this franchise does make lots of money. So we can say for certain that profits won’t be a thing to hinder chances for No game No Life Season 2. But if the site has lost its popularity this year, this might be another thing.

Source III: Information on Popularity of “No Game No Life Season 2”:-

heraldjournalism

If an anime franchise is not having enough popularity among its fans, there is no point to continue that particular project. An example of low popularity is Tokyo Ravens and why Tokyo Ravens Season 2 has been abandoned a long time ago.

In rare cases, if there is even a little bit of popularity for an anime from its die-hard fans, the season gets green-lit. Still, as we said, it is an uncommon thing.  For an anime like No game No Life, its last season aired 6 years ago. This is a long time for not only production committee but also fans to lose interest. Still, we will see as to how active this franchise really is by looking through it Google trends, social media, official website and number of print copies in circulation.

Social Media:

No Game No Life’s official website had its last update back in 2018. This update was about the release of the Guidebook. As for the No Game No Life official Twitter account, it has over 121K followers with last tweet made in March of 2020. This tweet was about the broadcast of the No game No Life on Abema TV.

Google Trends:

The popularity for No game No Life was at its peak back in 2014 when the first season aired. Then the release of the movie helped these popularity declines but it still remains only 30 percent of its peak. The current total searches for the series is at 10 percent of the peak back in 2014.

Light Novels:

As of 2018, there are around 4.5 million print copies of the No Game No Life light novel. The last volume was published back in January of 2018, so the figures stagnated after few months. This release speed is quite awful as the author released only 2 volumes in the last 4 years. So far in 2020, author has not revealed any new plans for a release.

Merchandise:

At the WonFes event in 2020, the production committee announced the release of new figurines of its main characters. This is good news because the merchandise sales were starting to decline. There was also a new merch; a No Game No Life Zero Rubber Mat.

CONCLUSION:

The series is still seemingly popular among fans and the movie even increased it furthermore. Still, if we can pinpoint one bad thing, it is the slow release of the light novel volumes.

The Big Reveal for “No Game No Life Season 2”:-

opptrends

To sum it all up, we would say that the release of No Game No Life Season 2 is waiting for the right time. We would not be surprised if the news came next year or a year after that and the airing date is for 2023.

The source material is in continuation but the main thing behind these delays is that Studios are busy these days. Even if the project has been green-lit since 2019, it would still take some years for it to air.

In order to learn more updates about No Game No Life season 2, we advise you to keep checking back on this article. We will update anything new here as soon as it comes.

Is There Really Going To Be “Konosuba Season 3” in 2020?

Among the many great Isekai genre anime series, Konosuba is certainly one of the best. With its amazing voice acting and fun characters, this series has gained a lot of popularity over the years. With all the great aspects of a popular anime, the fans are wondering why there still isn’t any news about Konosuba Season 3.

Without the release of the Season 3, fans will never be able to learn if there is hope for Megumin and Kazuma to get together as a couple or not. All of these and many other such questions can only be answered only by two ways. One is to read the original source material for the story, which is the light novel. As for the other way, it is to wait for the Konosuba Season 3 and many fans are willing to wait for this sequel. Now the main conundrum here is that there are no official announcements on the release of Konosuba Season 3 in 2020. Also, there are no rumors or speculations regarding the project being green-lit for future production.

How to Figure Out If There Is Going To Be A “Konosuba Season 3”?

After binging and following hundreds of animes from almost every genre, we have come to know of a certain method to determine the possibility for a season’s sequel. The method we have come up gives an answer by almost 95 percent certainty. The reason for this high percentage is we look through the franchise’s source material, its profit ad sales information as well as popularity among general audience. All this information, when combined gives a positive outlook of the bigger picture.

We took that same method and applied it to deduce if there will be season 3 for Konosuba or not. Without a doubt, this answer will be revealed at the very end of this article. So, to know this answer, keep on reading.

Section I: Source Material Info About “Konosuba Season 3”:-

technoinfoplus

A vast majority of the anime series are only adaption for the already existing source material. This source material can be in many forms such as mangas, light novels, visual novels, and games. As for the series at hand, Konosuba, this source material happens to be light novel.

Now we will see as to how many of the Konosuba light novel volumes have been released so far and also if this story is still ongoing. If, in the worst-case scenario, the story is concluded, the prospects for a Season 3 seem grim. This is the very same case due to which there will not be Air Gear Season 2.

We will also see how many of the volumes of this light novel have been used in making of the Konosuba Season 1 and Konosuba Season 2.

How many Light Novel/Manga volumes Does have?

At the moment, there happen to be 17 volumes of the light novel, all of which are released in Japan. Other than that, Konosuba got its own Spin-off series along with the manga adaptation on which the anime is loosely based upon.

The spin-off series covers the time of the story two years prior to the official series. This spin-off covers the lives of characters like Yunyun and Megumin.

Is it in Continuation?

The Konosuba main light novel series is concluded with the release of volume 17. Author of the series Natsume Akatsuki released this last volume in Japan on 1st May 2020. As for the spin-off series, it is currently ongoing. The author also revealed his pas to cover the lives of more Konosuba characters with this spin-off series. So, in short, we are looking at a considerable time frame to cover these characters in the spin-off.

Which volumes of light novel have been covered for anime?

Konosuba Season 1 was aired back in 2016 and the source material was volume 1 and 2 of the light novel. As for Konosuba Season 2, it was made using the material of light novel volumes 3 and 4. There was also a Konosuba movie titled “Densetsu” which used volume 5. This means for a sequel to happen, it will start from volume 6.

CONCLUSION:

With the amount of source material left of the light novel, there is plenty to make at least 6 of these seasons. Now the bad news here is that the light novel is already concluded which restricts prospects for a sequel happening in the future.

Section II: Information about Sales & Profit:-

dailyresearchplot

Konosuba has a plus point and that is it is a relatively cheaper anime to produce as compared to other series in its league. Studio releases 10 episodes per season and the cost of them is around 2 million dollars. Now, keeping in mind this cost, we will be checking the profit and sales information of the Konosuba franchise. What we fear at this point is that with each sequel, the profits of anime franchises tend to get less and less. A typical estimate is a drop of 10 to 20 percent in profits with each season.

So, if there happens to be a significant drop in the profits of Season 2 as compared to Season 1, the franchise has lost profits and is deemed a liability by the investors. Fans are still waiting on Noragami Season 3 which is still waiting for decision due to not making enough profits for its 2nd season.

Blu-Ray sales:

Konosuba Season 1 had a sale of around 1200 copies of Blu-ray disks. As for Konosuba Season 2, it sold around 11000 blu-ray disks. For Season 2, this is a great number as only a few animes can hope to reach this number in 2019. Although these blu-ray sales don’t matter for elevating chances for a sequel happening, they still contribute a little.

Still, there are exceptions to even this case like why despite the great blu-ray sales, Accel World Season 2 never aired.

Light Novel sales:

Konosuba volume 16 of light novel was released back on 1st August 2019 with a sale of 100K copies. As for the last volume of the novel, it was released in 2020 and has sold 95000 copies so far.

Also, this novel is not listed in the list for Top 10 Best-selling light novels for 2019 but is certainly in the 2018 list with a record of selling 630000 copies. This franchise is raking in revenue primarily from its light novel sales. Any Isekai sires that sell copies 100K for each volume is considered a top-notch one. The series is doing better than a popular series like Wise man’s Grandchild which sells only 15K copies even after having anime. This raises the question about the future of Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2.

Merchandise:

For the first 2 seasons of this franchise, 90 figurines were up for sale. Investors decided to provide figurines for all the major characters like Megumin, Kazuma, Darkness, and Aqua. Still, Megumin got most of these figurines as she alone has 50 of them.

Other than that, the franchise also released 1000 unique merchandise times which is more than what One Punch man has.

Both the movie and the first 2 seasons did great to boost production and sales of these merchandise items. This is a good omen because merchandise sales are a huge boost for the future of any anime series.

Konosuba Movie:-

The movie of the franchise titled “Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! Kurenai Densetsu” did a business of around 710 million Japanese yen or around 6.5 million dollars. It even sold around 20000 Blu-ray disks in Japan alone.

So as far as the movie goes, it performed outstandingly on both the box office and blu ray disk sales front. The film might have only cost around 2 million dollars so investors got a huge return on their investments.

Also, the success of an anime movie is a huge boost for a sequel’s prospects but there are still often exceptions. Like in the case of Goblin Slayer movie which despite performing well is still waiting on Goblin Slayer Season 2.

Konosuba Game:-

Back in February of 2020, the game of Konosuba was released in Japan which is now quite popular. This game even has plans on collaborating with Re: Zero. The game is even performing well compared to the Overlord game.

The game was, so far, downloaded for about 500K plus times and has earned around 1.5 million dollars till September on both Android and iOS.

The above-sated are only few of the main ways for an anime to earn money with lots of others. We cannot explain others in detail but they include OST tracks, opening ending songs, and international streaming licenses for Funimation & Crunchyroll, web radio, and others.

CONCLUSION:

As far as we can tell, everything related to Konosuba is making a decent turnover on the cost. This is a major plus sign for the chances of Konosuba Season 3 happening.

Section III: Information on Popularity of the Franchise:-

mobileyouth

Now we will check if the series is still as popular among fans as it was 4 years ago when the first season was released. Or if this popularity has decreased or increased after release of 2nd season and the movie. Looking back on the profits from the movie we are sure that the popularity must still be holding the ground.

We will still look at the places like franchise’s official website, their social media account, Google trends, and print copies numbers to make an assessment. A decrease in popularity might mean an end like Tokyo Ravens whose 2nd season never got released.

Social Media:

The Konosuba official website had its last update back in 2020 related to the rebroadcast of its seasons. As for the Twitter account, it has a following of 290K with countless tweets made even to this date.

Google Trends:

With each passing season as well as the movie of the Konosuba franchise, the popularity seems to increase. This is shocking because normally it is the opposite of sequels. The latest searches are at their peak, which might be due to the recent end of Konosuba Season 2. This only means that everyone is looking for the franchise to see the news about Konosuba Season 3.

Light Novels:

As of November 2020, there are around 9 million+ copies of the Konosuba light novel. The series ended with its volume 17 and people are buying them like hot cakes so the official numbers are still waiting to turn up.

CONCLUSION:

The popularity of the Konosuba is at its all-time high in 2020. Its mobile game along with the release of the last light novel volume and movie, are all contributing to its popularity is not only Japan but in the entire world.

Is there going to be “Konosuba Season 3”:-

We would be really surprised if the Konosuba Season 3 does not get announced next year or the year after that. There is no way for us to doubt that the series cannot get a sequel considering how high profits it is raking in.

While the conclusion of the light novel means a bad end for its anime project, the case is the opposite for Konosuba. All the other revenue-earning sources are contributing more than enough to green-lit at least 2 future projects of this franchise.

So, our short answer is that with a certainty of 99.99 percent, there is a chance that Konosuba Season 3 will get announced in the future.

Accel World is one of those anime series that combines the aspect of a sci-fi with the elements of virtual reality. This amalgam of 2 different perspectives in an anime is what makes Accel World so great. This raises the big question as to why there still isn’t an Accel World Season 2 yet.

financerewind

If there is no 2nd season of this series, there is no way for the series’ lovers to know who is the creator of this accelerated World and how is the relationship of Kuroyukihime with Haru is going to progress in the franchise. This and many of the other questions that have been lingering in the minds of fans can only be answered by reading the source material ahead of the animation. But what to do with the fact that watching an anime series is the best way. Now the problem with this is that there is still no official news about the release of Accel World Season 2. On top of it there isn’t even a rumor if the project is green-lit for any future works or not.

How to Figure Out If There Is Going To Be An “Accel World Season 2”?

In our ten years of watching the anime series and being an Otaku freak, we have seen almost every kind of anime there is. With this vast watching experience we have come to find a method which tells us whether an anime series will get a green light for its sequel or will it get abandoned. This method of ours is comprised of analyzing information of the source material, profit & sales, popularity percentage and many other such things to determine possibility for a sequel.  This is the same method that we will be using for checking possibility for 2nd season of Accel World. We will be presenting our method in 3 sections to let the fans of Accel World know a possibility for a sequel of Accel World.

So let us start with our analysis of this franchise.

Section I: Source Material Info About “Accel World Season 2”:-

trinikid

For any anime series, the most essential thing is its source material which has to be present for many years ahead of animation adaption. This source material can be in different forms such as light novel books, manga books, visual novel books, and games.  As for the Accel World anime, this source material turned out to be light novel. What really interests us about the source material of the franchise is as to how many volumes does it have and if the novel is still in continuation this year. If the story already reached its end, there doesn’t seem to be a sense in a Season 2 like in the case of Air Gear Season 2.

Following this, we will then be figuring out as to how many of the light novel volumes have been used for the anime adaptation of the Accel World Season 1 and the movie “Infinite Burst”. In some cases, there doesn’t seem to be any source material left for a squeal season. A common example of it is No Game No Life Season 2 which is abandoned due to lack of source material.

How many Light Novel/Manga volumes does Accel World have?

As of 2020, there are almost 25 volumes of the Accel World light novel. All of them are released in Japan along with now its own manga series. Still, the manga series has ended with 8 volumes and the anime is covering these 8 volumes of manga story.

Is it in Continuation?

The light novel Accel World is still in continuation and the man behind it is Kawahara Reki; the author of Sword Art Online. He published the latest volume of Accel World back on 10th September 2020. From the year 2017 to 2019, the author wrote only one volume per year. It seems that for 2020, he has the same one volume plan.

Which volumes of the light novel have been covered for anime?

Accel World Season 1 was adapted back in 2012 and the story in its covered light novel volumes 1 to 4 and some from volume 10. As for its movie Infinite Burst, it made use of the source material of volume 19 of the light novel. This means that if there is Accel World Season 2, the story will start from volume 5.

CONCLUSION:

The source material seems to be enough to make a minimum of 3 more Accel World sequels. This concludes that source material is not the main issue here and a sequel is very much possible.

Section II: Information about Sales & Profit:-

storifynews

If we can pinpoint a reason as to why 99 percent of the anime series do not get a sequel, it is because they do not make money for the investors. This is why it is essential for us to take a look at the sales & profits of the franchise.  Looking at this section is also important because the sequels of an anime series ted to see a drop in profits as compared to the first season. An example of it is the series Noragami whose season 2 could not perform well and that is why there will not be Noragami Season 3.

A highly popular anime series like Accel World usually takes about 5 million dollars to make and this is certainly not a small figure. So analyzing the sales & profits section is a must for our whole deduction method.

Blu-Ray sales:

The anime had its release in Japan on 8 disks and each of them sold nearly 9000 copies on average. In December of 2013, the franchise also released a BD-box which had 1500 copies sold. Most of the amines tend to sell around 10000 copies if they are hoping for a chance of a sequel. But blu-ray sales are not that much considering all the revenue coming from online streaming these days in not only Japan but across the globe.

For a highly popular anime, the success of streaming platforms amounts to enough profits for a sequel. A fine example of it is One Punch Man Season 3 which is only possible due to high revenue from streaming.

Light Novel sales:

The Accel World Volume 24 was released back on 10th September 2019 with a sale of around 55000 copies. As for the latest volume no. 25 in 2020, it had a sale of about 45000 copies. The light novel is now that much of a moneymaker for this franchise as it has a release rate of 1 book for a year. The thing that makes our claim strong is that the light novel sales are seeing a decline with each passing year. The copies sold since volume 16 amounts to about 19000 copies.

Ironically, despite having bad sales figures, Accel World still holds the spot in the list of “Top 3 Best Seller per Volume for light Novel”. The sales are better than other popular franchises like Kenja No Mago. So, if we get the Kenja No Mago Season 2 but no Accel world Season 2, it would be a really saddening thing.

Merchandise:

The brightest thing about Accel World is that it has around 100 figurines of its characters with 70 percent of them of the character Black Lotus. As for the 30 percent, they are of characters like Scarlet Rain, Silver Crow, and Chiyuri. Other than that franchise also has 250 other smaller merchandise items such as t-shirts, keychains, clear files, straps, plushies, cushions, mugs, and many others.

Most of the figurines were released after the success of the Accel World Season 1 and were mostly of the character Black Lotus. This number of figurines and merchandise items is not really bad but we expected a little bit more from an anime like Accel World. This is while considering that the Accel World Season 1 got released back in 2010.

Box Office Business of Accel World Movie:

The move for Accel World titled “Infinite Burst” was a big success at the box office in Japan. It did a business of around 115 million Japanese yen or 1 million dollars. The film also had 7000 of blu-ray copies sold as well as Viz Media releasing the movie in the USA in 2019 in English dubbing.

While you might think that 115 million yen box office business is bad for an anime movie, there are other aspects of it. This movie was released only on 19 screens with it being half-recap. Still, the Blu-ray sales for the movie were great. Considering all these aspects of movie sales and business, they boost the chances for a sequel.

Accel World Game:

The first game for Accel World had a sale of approximately 30000 copies with the 2nd game selling around 20000 copies. Then, there is also the Accel World * Sword Art Online game with a sale of 80000 copies. When comparing the sales of Accel World games with the sale of games for other animes, Accel World did a little well above them. A sequel of the first game is enough of proof as to how well the game delivered for fans. Also, these games came with OVA bundles that helped these sales.

All the things stated above are some of the many ways a franchise generates revenues. All of them are hard to be explained here but some of them are OST, songs at opening & end of the anime episode, international streaming licenses for Funimation and Crunchyroll, streaming on the platform Hulu, and others.

CONCLUSION:

These anime sales were great and it also delivered a decent profit amount for the production house Kadokawa. The season 1 also contributed towards increased light novel sales making them reach 100K+ sales for each volume. This makes one thing clear that profits won’t be the hindrance for making of Accel World Season 2.

Section III: Information on Popularity of the Franchise:-

tvovermind

Now we will be checking the popularity graph of the Accel world and compare it with when the series was aired back in 2012. We will basically be checking as to how much difference there is in popularity of the Season 1 and now. This is because there have been many cases where the production committee seems to lose interest in a project after many years. We do hope Accel World does not suffer the fate of Tokyo Raven Season 2.

For analyzing the popularity and demand of Accel World, we will be checking the official website, Google trends, print copies, social media presence, and current activity as well as popularity of Accel World.

Social Media:

The last update on Accel World official website was back in 2018 about the release of the BD box. The official account of the series on Twitter has 70K plus followers. The recent social media activity as this year about the radio Resurrection Award for Accel World.

While not having a single tweet about the new volume is a bad omen for series, the web award news is still a great thing.

Google Trends:

The popularity of the franchise was at its peak back in September of 2012 when the first season concluded. Following that, it dropped sharply to nearly the time when there was no anime. As for the current searches of the series, they are still at that all-time low.

The peak did have lot more searches than Konosuba and on that front, there will be Konosuba Season 3.

Light Novels:

As of 2020, there are around 570K copies in circulation of Accel World light novel, with the latest volume of the series publishing in September. The release rate used to be 2 to 3 volume each year but now it is only 1 for the last 4 years.

CONCLUSION:

Due to the series being an old one from 2012, the popularity it had once is now all lost. The movie released in 2016 was also not that much of a game-changer to re-ignite that popularity. Coupling this with no new figurine and merchandise release and slow release rate and sales of the light novel are all bad omens for a sequel’s prospects.

Is there going to be “Accel World Season 2”:-

In our opinion, we think that there still seems to be a small, however, minuscule, chance for Accel World Season 2. If there are plans, the release date will be announced by company Dengki Bunko. The main treason for our deduction is because Sword Art Online, written by the same author is reaching its end. With that project ending, the author will surely be giving his full-time efforts to Accel World.

So in case, there is news about Accel World, you have to check up here next year. We will update any news about the franchise here as soon as it comes.

There are many amazing anime series with a magic school setting but Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry is certainly among the top ones. This raises the question as to why there still isn’t a Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 yet?

Without having this 2nd season, we will never get to know as to what happens of the relationship between Stella & Ikki or if Ikki gets to prove his worth as a great knight. The one way to learn about all these and many others answers is to read the series’ actually light novel. Still, most fans would hold out until the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 releases. However, the problem is that there isn’t any official announcement or even a rumor about Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2.

How to Figure Out If There Is Going To Be A “Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2”?

In addition to the official announcement, anime fans have come up with their methods to deduce if there is going to be a sequel for an anime series. As an anime lover, we have also our own method which is consistent of checking source material, sales & profit info, and popularity of a franchise. All of this carefully observed to see if there is hope for a series’ continuation. We took that very same method and applied it to Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry to see if there will be a Season 2.

Section I: Source Material Info About “Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2”:-

Most anime series takes the traditional approach of having adaption by having the source material for many years. In the case of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry series, this source material happens to be light novel. We will be seeing as t how many of the light novel volumes have been released so far and also how many of those volumes were used in the adaption of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 1.

How many Light Novel/Manga volumes Does Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry have?

For the question about the total number of volumes for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, there are actually 18 of them. All of them were released by the author in Japan and it also has a manga adaption by the name “Megumu Soramichi”.

The manga has 11 volumes with a single anthology manga created by other artists. This anthology manga got released back in 2014.

Is it in Continuation?

As for the story of the light novel, luckily, it is still in continuation with the latest volume released back on 12th June 2020 in Japan by the author “Riku Misora”. The story seems to reach its end with 3 to 4 volumes expected for a better conclusion. We can expect it to finish in 2021.

Which volumes of the light novel have been covered for anime?

As for the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 1, it made use of the source material from volume 1 to 3 and was released in 2015. The 2d season is most likely to start from volume 4 of the light novel.

CONCLUSION:

There seems to be enough source material to give fans 5 seasons, meaning source material is not a crucial problem for a sequel.

Section II: Information about Sales & Profit:-

opptrends

The main reason behind an anime series is basically profit for its production committee. This means that checking the sales & profits of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry will be our next objective to see if there will be Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2.

Blu-Ray sales:

The company named Silver Link was responsible for sales of blu-ray disks and nearly 3000 of these copies were sold. This is not a bad figure but not a great one considering it was back in 2015. The franchise also got its BD-box in 2016 and 700 of them were sold. For 2015, this number seems low for an anime franchise looking to have a sequel.

Light Novel sales:

Volume 17 of the franchise was released back in November of 2019 and had about 15000 copies sold. As for volume 18, it had 1000 copies sold.

These sales are great as for a popular anime franchise, the light novel sales should be in-between 30000 to 60000.

Merchandise:

The series only has 2 figurines and all of them are of the character “Stella Vermillion”. In addition to this, the series also released 25 merchandise items but this is indeed low.

In addition to this, there are other means of earning profits off an anime. A few of these means are OST, opening & ending songs, streaming license by Funimation and Crunchyroll, and others.

CONCLUSION:

The Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 1 could not do much to contribute towards increased source material sales or even the merchandise sales. This means that there is low-profit stream from the anime adaption and there might be a possibility that the franchise lost money in the process.

Section III: Information on Popularity of the Franchise:-

There are chances that due to low profits, the production committee often moves on to a better project. But there is still a popularity check left to see if the series is received well among fans.

Social Media:

The first thing to check this popularity is to observe the social media presence of the said franchise. We went to the official website of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry and the last update on it was back in 201.7. It was about the release of the BD-box. As for the Twitter account, it has 37K followers with the last tweet made in April of 2020. It was also about the first season which will have a rebroadcast in Japan.

Google Trends:

With the release of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 1, the popularity of the franchise in 2015 was at its peak. Following the season’s end, the popularity dropped sharply and is now 60 percent of what it initially used to be at the peak.

Light Novels:

The last volume was released in 2020 but the number of print copies for it is still not confirmed. As for volume 17 released in 2019, including that and previous ones, there are approximately around 2 million copies in circulation.

CONCLUSION:

We have seen a massive fan following of this season and even people in our social circle that love watching anime are fond of it. Despite this, seeing such low popularity is a shocking thing but these are the official stats. All the negative information for the series’ social media presence indicates that the series has been left behind.

Is there going to be “Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2”:-

wallpaperaccess

The information of the article concludes that the source material is not the main issue for the sequel. Instead, the series’ popularity has decreased over the last few years. Still, low popularity does not mean there will not be a sequel.

But our opinion is that there will never be a Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2. The main reason behind this is series not making enough money and the first season was a big bust for the production committee.

To sum it all up, we would say that chances for the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 are basically 0. So if you love the series and wish to learn the story ahead, you might need to read the light novel or the manga.

The movie will be hitting the theaters only 3 weeks before the Season 2 of the anime series air. Studio is feeling quite ambitious about this project and its results.

The 2nd season of this anime series already has 12 episodes that air on all the renowned streaming portals such as Netflix delivered by Aniplex. As for the English dubbed version of the season 1, it aired back in July of 2019 on Funimation. Production committee of The Promised Neverland expects to get the same popularity levels as the first season.

Overlord Season 4 – Will there be a Next Season?

0

After almost two long years’ time since Overlord’s third season, fans of the famous anime are beginning to ask whether the series will actually return for Overlord Season 4?

Overlord Season 4
Figure 1 By HITC

Animes are fan top choice and are enormously cherished by the watchers. The captivating storyline of animes are astonishing and very well keeps the audience connected. One such famous anime is Overlord. It is a Japanese sci-fi manga anime story that has procured an incredible reaction since its release. Three seasons of Overlord have just broadcasted beforehand, and now the fourth season is fit to be dropped off at any point in the near future.

Like the idea of novels or manga, anime fans are used to long breaks between seasons but after a specific measure of time, they begin to stress over possible cancellations.

Without the release of fourth season, we will never learn if Ainz will figure out how to conquer Yggdrasil’s entire world or somebody sufficient will appear to stop him.

Figure 1 by next alerts

The best way to discover that without a sequel is to peruse the light novels, but after three seasons, the vast majority will stand by and trust that there will be the fourth season.

The issue is that Overlord season 4 did not get formally declared at this point in 2020, and we don’t have the foggiest idea what the odds are that another season of Overlord will get into action this year.

So, how can we figure out the possibilities of it getting released in the near future?

I like to look at the odds of anime getting a release, and I did that for hundreds of animes. The strategy I use is 80% exact. It involves taking a look at the sales, popularity, and source material. That will give you enough data to tell if the anime will get another release.

I applied the same method for Noragami, so on the off chance that you need to know whether there will be the fourth season for Overlord, follow this article.

Source Material Information:

Light novel is the main source material for the Overlord series.

The main thing we need to check is the number of light novels the series has delivered up until now and if the story is going to end soon. On the off chance that the story is finishing, that could hurt the possibilities of its continuation.

Or on the other hand, the story is in the center for Overlord like for Classroom of The Elite. Progressing stories have a superior possibility of getting released, and that is the reason the Classroom of The Elite Season 2 has an improved possibility of getting declared, for instance.

The second most significant thing is the number of light novels got utilized in making the initial three periods of the Overlord. Fourteen light novel volumes of Overlord have been delivered until now. Overlord is dependent on manga series and the light books. The manga arrangement has thirteen books released. Light novels of Overlord are still going on by the author Kugane.

Figure 1 HIPTORO

Nine volumes of light novels have already been used by the Madhouse Anime. So, enough volumes are left to start off the fourth season.

It gives us enough source material which tells us that Overlord will get a sequel and release date by the end of 2020 or in the beginning of 2021. Covid-19 is also a major factor causing the delay in sequel.

Sales & Profit Estimation:

Overlord has already released three seasons which makes it obvious that, they are making money, but every new season makes lesser than the previous one. That is why we need to figure out if the franchise is still profitable or not. It gives a rough idea about the next projects.

When we talk about Overlord’s Blu-Ray sales, the first season sold a huge 12,000 copies for each volume. The subsequent season dropped to simply around 8,000 copies, and the third one was around 6,000 for each vol.

The light novel sales may astound you, but the Overlord is the subsequent smash hit light novel per volume after the Sword Art. Every volume sales around 200,000 copies.

Overlord’s games sales are also pretty high, and it has attracted a number of merchandises like Albedo, Ainz, EvilEye, Narberal, and Shalltear.

The analysis suggests that the profit is still good, and it will not be a problem for the production house to not go-ahead due to profit considerations.

Popularity Stats:

Popularity of Overlord third season can be estimated by looking at social media trends, official website, google results or any other new merchandise.

The first season left very strong popularity among the viewers which compelled the production house to go ahead for further two seasons. Season 2 and 3 were not as much popular as was the first one, but still they performed well.

Overlord’s official website was last refreshed in 2019 with news about the fourteenth light novel volume. The official Twitter represents 109,000 followers tweeted about Overlord.

Shockingly, as indicated by Google trends, the 3rd season of Overlord was the most well-known up until this point. It had twice the number of searches as the first season that started back in 2015.

If we look at these stats, the series is still famous, and it has very chances for the next sequel.

Conclusion:

There is no reason that Overlord Season 4 should not get released. The business and even source material suggest that there are bright chances for its announcement. It would be a major astonishment for me if Overlord did not get another season declared in the 2021 or soon.

Try not to anticipate that it should deliver in 2020. I would state Overlord Season 4 delivery date will be in 2021 or, in the most pessimistic scenario, it will get driven into 2022.

I read some speculations that Overlord Season 4 was said to occur at some show. All things considered; I would hang tight for an official declaration about it.

I believe this article helped you comprehend the chances of Overlord Season 4 getting released in 2020.

Noragomi Season 3 – Everything You Need To Know!

0

Noragami is an extremely popular Japanese series having characters possessing supernatural powers. The anime is a mix of comedy and adventure. It is written by Adachitoka and Kotaro Tamura is the director of this Series.

Figure 1 by Herald [https://heraldjournalism.com/2020/05/15/will-noragami-be-back-with-season-3-after-a-long-gap-of-five-years-or-its-finally-been-cancelled/]

So, will there be a season 3 coming up soon this year?

Without the third season, how we will know that if Yato gets to millions of worshippers with his awesome shrine? How Hiyori and Yukine would come up with new strategies to accomplish their divine goals?

The first season was released in 2011, and it’s now going on five years since last episode of season 2 aired. Despite huge success and fanbase in Japan and abroad, the writer Adachitoka decided to take long break of one year and give time to his other projects. Bones has neither denied nor confirmed the release. But fans are hopeful for next season.

So, why is it taking so long?

The best way to discover that without a sequel is to reach out to Manga, however the vast majority will never do that. Studio Bones made an incredible showing with the variation, so everybody seeks after a season 3.

The problem is, official announcement of release of Noragami in 2020 is yet to come. So, we cannot say with surety that it would be releasing this year.

Following are the couple of indications that Noragami Season 3 would release this year.

Source Material

The first thing we need to consider is Source Material.

We must analyze the number of manga volumes got released up until now, and if the manga is as yet continuous in 2020. On the off chance that the story finished up or is moving toward an end, that could be the reason another season for Noragami could struggle getting affirmed.

The manga as of now has 21 volumes, with the following installment of the English version planned to be delivered in November 2020. The next step is to check the number of manga volumes got utilized for the initial two releases of the Noragami anime. There are events when the anime utilizes all the accessible source material which gives viewers a guess.

So, it concludes that, there are further more than enough manga volumes are left for at any rate another two volumes of Noragami. The way that the manga is progressing improves Noragami Season 3 chances on the grounds that there is something to advance for the anime.

Budget & Profit Consideration

Anime isn’t cheap to produce since one season like Noragami can cost as much as 3 million dollars. Also, the general purpose of making it, in any case, is to make a benefit.

Figure 1 Financerwind [https://financerewind.com/entertainment/noragami-season-3-will-nora-take-revenge-from-yato-everything-you-need-to-know/]

So, seeing how well the second season of Noragami did as far as cash is indispensable for us to comprehend another season’s chances of getting released are bright.

Most anime never get a third season on the grounds that there is normally a drop from season to prepare as far as profit is concerned. But in this case, Noragami did great, and chances are it will continue with next season.

Popularity Of Previous Season

Since the principal season did get a continuation, at that point it is sheltered to state that it was famous, however, shouldn’t something be said about the sequel Noragami Aragoto?

There is no reason for making the third season for Noragami if the next one lost numerous fans. That is the reason we must check popularity, and expectation which is more similar to the Overlord case. Overlord Season 4 is going on because the popularity is expanding from season to season.

What we are keen on is if the announcement for sequel is going to be made or not.

That implies taking a look at the official site, online media, Google patterns, and stuff like that. That will assist us with understanding the current prominence and movement of the Noragami establishment for 2020.

The official site for Noragami was last refreshed in September 2019 with news about the Noragami and Noragami Aragoto re-broadcast. The official Twitter algorithms show that about 102,000 followers tweeted last time in December 2019 about something very similar. From the popularity standpoint, we can expect that next season is sure to come.

In season 3 we will be meeting with the following characters:

[https://nextalerts.com/2020/07/02/noragami-season-3-is-it-canceled-cast-plot-and-all-leaks-click-to-know-more]

Fujisaki Kouto

Fujisaki Kouto is an amiable youthful student at Hiyori’s school who is possessed by the spirit known as Father, a puzzling soul who harbors persistent scorn toward the divine beings.

In the last scene of Noragami Aragoto, we discover that Father was the maker of Nora and Yato and holds two incredible brushes that can summon ghosts, his own, and the brush of Ebisu.

Hope to consider a lot to be of Father as his obtaining Ebisu’s brush has successfully multiplied his capability to cause ruin in the Near Shore.

Rabo

Rabo is the god of calamity who is going to make more appearances in the upcoming seasons.

Her relationship with Nora, specifically, will be a key plot point, with the two contriving to compel Yato to return to his brutal ways.

Nora

Nora is something like a sister figure to Yato, having once invested an all-inclusive time of energy with him as his shinki.

Throughout the long term, she has filled in as shinki to a few outstanding figures in the Noragami universe, including Takemizakuchi, Ebisu, and Father himself.

She has since been uncovered to be a “daughter” of Father’s, as is Yato, further extending the connection between the two.

Her relationship with Rabō, a God of Calamity, is especially intriguing, and we hope to consider more to be the two as they work to take Yato back to his past viciousness.

Bishamon

The excellent Bishamon, a God of Fortune, had a long-standing resentment with Yato who hundreds of years prior, butchered a few of Bishamon’s shinki faction and she promised to avenge their demises.

Later she discovers that it was Kazumo’s thought to execute her shinki faction since they were degenerate and contaminating her with Blight. She forgets her vengeance against Yato and even needs to go to the hidden world to spare him.

Kofuku

Unmistakably, the bubbly God of Poverty will be essential for Season 3.

It is difficult to advise how much she’ll be engaged with the primary plot. Anime frequently avoid past valuable material for lucidity and pacing, however, it’s absolutely impossible they’d forget about this fan top choice.

Summing Up

Will there be a third season of Noragami?

The legit answer: who knows?

Neither the manga’s makers nor the anime makers have said something affirming or denying a season three.

With the manga back in full creation after a long break, the potential for this anime coming back to action is high.
