Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the evil was received well by viewers all over the world. The short 12 episode anime left many of its viewers anticipating what will happen next. It seems that Youjo Senki Season 2 should be on its way, but will it ever happen? Let’s find out!
Youjo Senki: Season 2 Release Date
Youjo Senki was released three years ago and fans are yet to hear about the renewal of the anime. The producer of the anime has kept quiet about this question, and there have been no updates. The anime is based on a manga of the same name. Therefore, it has enough source material, but there is no word of renewal. It has been praised by critics and given a positive review, so many are looking forward to a renewal. The first season has a score of 8 on MAL. Hence, the creators have no reason to cancel the Japanese fantasy anime.
A few rumours have been floating around about the anime’s renewal, but they are yet to be confirmed by the studio. If the renewal does get confirmed this year, then according to production time, fans can expect the release sometime in 2022.
What is Youju Senki about?
The anime revolves around an atheist Japanese salaryman who is reborn as Tanya Degurechaff after he criticises the existence of a being who claims himself as “God.” The salaryman terms him as Being X. Due to his disbelief in the Being, the entity reincarnates the salaryman as a young, orphaned girl in an alternate reality of Germany where World War I is dragged into the 1920s.
The Being X subjects Tanya to difficult circumstances and says that if she does not die a natural death or does not believe in the cycle, she will be sent to hell and punished for her numerous sins. To protect herself, Tanya joins the Empire’s Mage Corps and fights in the war so she can rise high in the ranks. A higher rank will help her avoid battle and keep her away from the field. Even as a young girl, Tanya fights ruthlessly and works towards surviving while removing everyone who stands in her path.
The development of this storyline is exciting. Fans wonder whether Tanya will be able to secure the life she wanted. She is also left to acknowledge her existence. Protagonists in the form of villains are often not well received, but Tanya was well-loved by fans. This is why Youju Senki Season 2 is highly awaited.
You can watch Season 1 on Netflix.
