Ever since the release of ‘In Another World With My Smartphone’, time has been ticking ever more slowly for fans of the series.
We are all wondering when will we see season 2 of this popular show?
Before we answer this question, let’s start with a roundup of the first series.
Season 1 of In Another World With My Smartphone
In Another World With My Smartphone was a Japanese manga series that was written by Patora Fuyuhara. It was illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka.
The original manga series was first published back in 2016. Within no time it had been noticed and was turned into an anime by Production Reed studio.
The very next year, in July 2017, the first episode aired on Japanese TV. The first series of the anime version of the manga ran for 3 months. It featured a total of 12 episodes.
Plot And Characters
After a 15-year old boy called Touya dies after being struck by lightning, the God that kills him feels bad and decides to bring him back to life on a different planet. To make it up to the boy, God grants him a wish where he can receive any one item of his choosing.
Being a 21st-century boy, Touya chooses his smartphone. God grants him his wish and adds never-ending battery life and unlimited internet.
God also gives Touya seven magical abilities.
He is given the ability to use Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Light, Dark, and Null, the seven components of magic.
Touya is then set free in this new world to begin his new life of adventure.
Along the way, Touya meets Elze Silhoueska. After rescuing her and her sister from an attack in an alleyway, they become close friends. Elze also has magical powers. She fights using enchanted gauntlets while also having the ability to use a magic boost that enhances her physical strength.
As the series progresses, Elze and Touya become ever closer and begin to develop feelings for each other. However, Touya decides that they should not become too close for the sake of Elze’s sister.
Elze’s sister is called Linze. While not as physically strong or attractive, Linze is more intelligent than her sister. She is a specialist in magic and is a fearsome warrior. Like her sister, Linze begins to develop feelings for Touya, who prefers Elze.
The last of the main characters is Yae Kokonoe.
Yae comes from an old Samurai family and is a good warrior. She decides to leave home to refine her skills as a Samurai. During this time she meets Touya and helps her by fighting off the group attacking her. She becomes part of the group for most of the series until she leaves them to return to help fight for her family.
In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2
We always like to believe that there is hope when it comes to a new series of any popular Japanese anime series.
However, for once we can only say that the bottom line is that we all might have a long time to wait if we want to see a new series.
Though it has only been a few years since the release of season one, a series of events might show that the anime version of of the show won’t be returning anytime soon.
Firstly, it was produced by Production Reed studios, who have said nothing at all about a new series. Despite there being enough material on which to make a new series, the studio seems to have its hands full with other projects.
In what might be the nail in the coffin, In Another World With My Smartphone’s Wikipedia page was updated to state that the series had been discontinued.
Quite who was behind this update is unknown but the news spread like wildfire across the internet. This has led many to give up hope of ever seeing a second series.
Unfortunately for anime fans, Japanese studios are excellent at keeping their mouths shut. Very little news leaks and we are always the last to know about their plans.
There are rumors of new volumes of the manga coming out soon, something which if true, would provide more than enough material for a second anime series. However, as usual, these are just rumors and can’t be confirmed.
If we hear anything new on the rumor mill or official from the studio about a second series, we will let you know straight away.
