The anime Maou Sama, Retry, also known as Demon Lord Retry, was adapted from a light novel of the same name written by Kurone Kanzaki and illustrated by Kouji Ogata. It belongs to the isekai anime subgenre, which has recently experienced a surge in popularity among fans.
The anime was adapted by Studio Ekachi Epilka and ran for 12 episodes, each running for exactly 23 minutes, from July 4 to September 19, 2019. Some viewers enjoyed the show even though the majority of the audience did not. The main draw of the show was that it opted to think outside the box and chose an older guy as the protagonist rather than a young, popular, and attractive guy as the lead. The perfect amount of humor, as opposed to the slight hint of seriousness that the typical isekai anime approaches, was another element that kept the audience on the edge of their seats.
Demon Lord, Retry Season 2 Release Date
The light novel, from which the anime is adapted, has a total of 6 volumes. Only 2 volumes had been adapted when the first season came to an end. That means there is enough material available if the studio decides to adapt Demon Lord, Retry’s upcoming season.
Considering the advantages and disadvantages of adopting the following season as an isekai anime, the popularity of the first season should also not be an issue. As of today, 110,524 users gave it a score of 6.54 on MyAnimeList, which isn’t bad enough to completely cancel the series.
Therefore, it is safe to assume that the creator will soon share some encouraging news about the upcoming season. Another thing to mention is that the 12th episode ended with a “to be continued..” note. This is a further indication that season 2 may be arriving soon and was already planned by the producers. How near is this now, then? This is quite a difficult question to answer. The end of 2022 is the earliest that can happen.
