New Season/Sequel Announcement
There is no specific date for the release of the sequel given by the official site. But they confirmed that it will air in 2023, except the new sequel to have a bit more episodes than usual due to a broad plot.
Why Did The Second Season Fail To Impress The Fans?
The episode ended with the classic “to be continued” after steering the credits. Honestly, Numerous things will happen in the sequel, but we cannot spoil it. But one thing is sure; it will be more awesome than this dull second season.
Fans criticized the second season because of rushing things. The Light Novel has not been completed yet, and the manga is still incomplete. The first season was a huge hit and is considered one of the best slice-of-life-themed anime in recent times.
From animation to characters, everything was perfect. But the sequel of the first one returns after nine years. Fans were expecting more but were disappointed after the rushed plot and lousy animation.
The plot lacked action and focused more on Alas Ramus’s cuteness. Honestly, the story did not have any volume to attract fans. But the creators did not disappoint its hardcore fans by announcing its return for a sequel in 2023. Whether it will be a weekly episode of anime or a movie has not been confirmed yet.
This series is the anime adaptation of Satoshi Wagahara’s light novel of the same name, which has 21 volumes. Talking about the anime’s plot, it is quite unusual for a stereotypical Isekai anime. To put it simply, this anime is a kind of reverse-Isekai.
The story focuses on Maou, Ashiya, and Urushihara, three upper-class demons who escaped from their home world, Ente Isla, and started living in modern Japan as mere humans. The anime shows how difficult staying in Japan is. They were doing pretty well until Maou’s fateful meeting with his arch-enemy, Emi Yusa, in this new busy world.
This romantic comedy show blends magic and supernaturalism with our daily life. The show is full of fun, and the introduction of Alas Ramus this season has tried to bring the Kawai factor to the plot. Though it has not impressed the general fans, it does not affect its downfall much. The critical negative aspect is that the new animation style does not provide visual pleasure to the general audience.
