After waiting for over two years, it’s finally time to raise some serious questions. Is ‘Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2’ returning to the screens again? Sadly, the popular Isekai anime is not officially renewed. Yet, there’s still hope for the sequel. Here’s everything you need to know.
Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody originated as a highly acclaimed light novel series back in 2013. Years later, Silver Link Studio decided to make an anime adaptation of the story, which debuted in January 2018. The franchise gained fame overnight, and the anime became a classic addition to the RPG Isekai genre. The demand for a sequel rose after the premiere of Season 1’s finale episode.
Will ‘Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2’ Ever Return?
Despite having raging high popularity amongst fans, Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2 is yet to get an official renewal. Even after years of its conclusion, the sequel is still in high demand. The first installment of the show turned out to be a successful venture for the studio. Hence, a second season is likely to become equally famous upon release.
The anime adaptation increased the sales of its source material. In fact, the effects of its popularity can still be seen in sales of the most recent LN volumes. However, most of the anime series these days are produced solely to promote its source material. As per speculations, Desu Māchi Kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyōsōkyoku seems to fall in the same category.
Although considering that the light novel series is still in the run, it may need some promotion sometime in the near future. If that happens, Silver Link Studio might attempt to create a sequel of the show. Thus, there’s still hope for its renewal. Sadly, fans might need to wait for quite a while to get any new episodes.
On the other hand, the producers of the anime seem to be interested in creating another season. They ended the first season on a mind-blowing cliffhanger. This hints that the studio previously intended to produce more episodes of the series. Well, it has only been two years since it last aired. Unlike most US television shows, anime can take a gap as long as four to five years. Hence, it’s not unusual if Silver Link takes a while to make the decision. As of now, we can only hope that our favorite characters return to complete the story of this iconic show.
Is There Enough Source Material?
The DesuMachi light novel series began serialization back in 2013. As of March 2020, a total of nineteen LN volumes have been officially published. Moreover, the series is still in continuation and may continue for several years in the future. The first season of its anime adaptation barely covers the first three volumes.
Therefore, Silver Link still has seventeen volumes to produce sequels of the MMORPG Isekai anime. Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2 is likely to cover Volume 4 through Volume 6 of the LN series. Hence, there’s more than enough source material available for its production.
Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2: Release Date
As of now, the second season of the DeguMachi might take several years to get back to the floors. Both its producers, Studio Silver Link and Connect, seem to have a busy schedule for the next few years. The studios already have several anime series and movies planned for 2020, 2021, and ahead. Hence, it’s hard to say if they’ll be picking up Death March To The Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2 within this schedule.
Any new episodes of the anime may not premiere anytime sooner than 2022. Although it’s always wise to wait for an official announcement. We will update this section as soon as a concrete release date comes out.
