Last weekend marked the conclusion of the pilot season of Drugstore In Another World. The season finale aired on September 22, 2021. It has only been a few days since the halt, and fans are already demanding the renewal of the second edition. The popular fantasy anime made its television debut in the month of July this year. EMT Squared animation studio was behind the brilliance of its animation. So, when can fans find Drugstore In Another World Season 2? What is the renewal status? Here is all you need to know about the renewal of the second season.
Drugstore In Another World original launched as a novel series by author Kennoji. Later in 2017, the writer collaborated with illustrator Shoji Nigo to serialize a light novel series. Eri Haruno’s manga came out in December 2018. Three years later, Muse Communication licensed the anime and brought it to the screens with the help of EMT Squared. Initially, fans loved the concept and animation of the venture, but the appreciation faded away with progressing episodes. Now, the second season has become the talk of the town for the fans.
Drugstore In Another World Season 2: Renewal Status
At the time of writing, there has been no official news of the renewal of the show. Muse Communications, EMT Squared, and the team of the show all have refrained from commenting on the matter. However, there has also been no official confirmation of the cancellation of the sequel. In terms of ratings, the show performed underwhelmingly. The IMDb rating of the show remains 5.8 out of then. Moreover, it has been rated 6.47 on MyAnimeList.
The show has also failed to perform well in popular anime charts. No episode was ever listed in the rating charts during the course of the show. On top of that, fans and critics relentlessly criticized the writing of the show with each progressing episode. Thus, it is safe to say that the renewal of Drugstore In Another World Season 2 might not see the light of the day.
Manga Compared To Anime
The manga is the original source material of the anime. Much like the novel and light novel series, the manga also remains concise with the material. The text has five volumes in total. After the fifth volume, no spin-off or reboot versions were released by the writer. So, the pilot season has adapted the first two volumes of the manga for twelve episodes. Thus, it can be assumed that there is still plenty of source material for a third season as well. However, the source material is not the only concerning criterion for renewal in this case.
Drugstore In Another World Season 2: Release Date
As of now, there has been no official confirmation of the release date of Drugstore In Another World Season 2. However, if the makers ever decide to renew the second season, it might not be well before one year. In case the production work commences this year, the anime would finish the work in about a year. Thus, the viewers can expect to see the anime in the early months of 2022. However, fans must keep their expectations low in regards to the return of DAWS Season 2.
