The wait for In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2 is finally coming to an end. This week, Studio Reed finally broke their silence on the return of the series. After the announcement, all of the internet is talking about the fantasy harem once again. Post all the criticism and dull reviews, it seems like fans are ready to welcome the sequel with open arms. So, when is Isekai wa Sumātofon to Tomo ni Season 2 releasing? What will be its plot? We answer all your questions right here!
The debut season of In Another World With My Smartphone was released back in July 2017 and ran for two months. There was a lot of debate surrounding the return of one of the best isekai anime series. The biggest question in the limelight was about Season 2 being the last. So, is the new season the final outing of the franchise? You will find all the answers in the following subheads.
In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2: Renewed Or Not?
Isekai wa Sumātofon to Tomo ni launched as a novel series in 2013. After the launch of the light novel and the manga, the series rose to popularity soon enough. Patora is the creator of this famous isekai work. So, on April 15, 2022, the official website of the anime confirmed that In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2 was finally renewed. The official announcement came along with a visual penned by author Eiji Usatsuka.
It is after five years that the series is coming back. As the time progressed, fans lost hope that Studio Reed would bring back the show. But loyal fans kept looking for updates. And now, their wait has finally come to an end.
Reed’s Final Attempt To Boost Sales!
In Another World With My Smartphone is an extended text. There are 25 volumes in the light novel, and one manga is also running. Judging by the pace of adaptation of the first season, the entire text can back eight seasons at the least. Thus, there is no way that any animation company would opt to animate these many seasons. Back in 2017, fans had no hope that In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2 would ever come back. This is because the series was taking too long to get an adaptation.
Well, a part of the reason is the fact that the show failed to boost the sales of the manga and the light novels. As per a user on Reddit, only 1,418 volumes of the anime were sold after the premiere. The show has been rated 6.2 stars on both IMDb and MyAnimeList. This is the reason why fans think Season 2 is also created in order to boost the sales of the Light Novels and the manga.
Is This The Last Season?
After In In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2, there can be six more seasons to the anime. But Production Reed has a history of working on single and dual-season projects. This is the reason why fans believe that this is the last season of the anime. There was not much demand for the second season, even though the series came back.
No studio would ever work on a 25-volume project unless it has a huge fanbase. Plus, with each progressing season, the number of viewers tends to decrease. Thus, Isekai wa Sumātofon to Tomo ni Season 2 might as well be the final season of the anime. If this show is a success, then the rest of the story will have to be read from the novels or the manga.
Has The Production Started?
Since there is no studio change in the anime, it is confirmed that Studio Reed will be animating the second season. Judging by the date of the announcement, the producers are eyeing the Summer 2023 slate for a release. Thus, the production has already begun in the studio. However, it is only in the early stages as of the time of writing. Within six months, the first teaser will be released.
Moreover, the trailer will be launched two months before the premiere. The production company is yet to confirm all these details. We will be sure to update this section with relevant updates as they come.
Is There Enough Material For Season 2?
Isekai wa Sumātofon to Tomo ni is an original light novel created by Patora Fuyuhara. In 2015, the first volume of the light novel was released. The novel has a total of 25 volumes. In 2017, Studio Reed greenlit the anime project of the LN. The first season of 12 episodes only used the first three volumes of the novels. This means that the series has more than enough content for In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2.
In fact, if the makers want, the anime can go on for more than eight seasons. The second season will cover Volume 4 through Volume 6 of the light novel.
What Will Happen In In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2?
The first season took things slow with Touya and his acquaintances. The entry of Professor Regina Babylon was only a tease for the villain of the story. Towards the conclusion of Season 1, we see that the professor’s plan to create nine different humanoid robots was taking shape. It was much later in her life that she saw Touya having nine wives. This was the time when she realized that his dream was coming to life. The season ended with Touya having to go through a compatibility test in order to get the rights to Babylon.
Now, In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2 will bypass this storyline to introduce a new antagonist. Fraze is the next target of Professor Babylon. However, this villain is more powerful than the one that Touya fought in the first season. Thus, the professor already plans to build weapons called the Frane Gears. Thus, there will be more action in the sequel.
In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2: Release Date
So, when is In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2 releasing? As of the time of writing, there is no confirmation on the final release date of Season 2. But since the animation process will take a year, the sequel will not release in 2022. The anime will be coming in the Summer of 2023. Moreover, much like Season 1, this one will also release on Crunchyroll. We will be sure to update this section as soon as there are more updates.
