A couple of years have passed since the conclusion of the 12 episode long first season of Rokka No Yuusha. While it was by no means the most popular anime series of its time, it has earned a pretty loyal following.
The series follows a diverse cast of characters called Braves of the Six Flowers that embark on a daring quest to defeat the Demon God at the behest of the Goddess of Fate. But there’s a twist – there are actually seven Braves in the group, and one of them is a traitor working for the Demon King himself.
This story that combined mystery and fantasy was absolutely enticing during its first run. Now fans of the show are beginning to ask more and more: will Rokka No Yuusha season 2 ever be released?
The History of Rokka No Yuusha
Like many great anime shows, Rokka No Yuusha is an adaptation of a saga of books. Written by Ishio Yamagata, Rokka No Yuusha was born as a series of light novels. The first volume was released in 2011. There have been six volumes thus far, with the final one released in 2015. Their English translations were released from 2017 to 2018.
After the novels, a manga adaptation was serialized running from 2012 to 2015. The English translations were all released in 2017. Soon after this, English audiences were delivered the anime adaptation of this long running franchise, but it has only lasted a dozen episodes so far.
What We Know About Rokka No Yuusha Season 2
Many fans of Rokka no Yuusha have rightfully noted that the first season of the anime only covers the first volume of the original light novels. Therefore the most logical conclusion one could make is that because there’s so much more material for at least five more seasons, Rokka No Yuusha must be getting more episodes…right?
Unfortunately, things don’t seem to be looking up for a release of Rokka No Yuusha season 2. For one thing the production studio Passione has not released any announcements or confirmations for a second season of the series.
Still No Word from Passione
To make matters more uncertain, Passione has neither confirmed nor denied the show’s cancellation. Rokka No Yuusha seems to be in a state of development limbo, with no one really knowing if it is on hiatus or not.
A similar state of affairs extends to the novels and manga as well. The books and manga were neither canceled nor concluded. They too seem to be in a state of indefinite suspension.
What does this all mean for Rokka No Yuusha season 2? The best we can say is that the show is simply up in the air. If we had to guess (and unfortunately guessing is all anyone can do right now), Passione Studio themselves are not sure whether or not they should begin production on Rokka No Yuusha season 2.
While the anime was relatively popular in western countries, the show did not do well in Japan. Japanese audiences are typically not big fans of fantasy storylines like people in North America or Europe. This may have a lot to do with way Rokka No Yuusha has not yet been renewed.
So the show is – probably – not canceled but it that possibility is still quite strong, unfortunately. If we ever do receive Rokka No Yuusha season 2, it may not happen for quite some time.
