Fans of this anime series have been waiting to see Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko Season 2 ever since they watched its debut season. Its first run managed to catch the viewers’ attention with its brilliant action sequences. Even the fans of the manga series were satisfied with the adaptation. As a result, now everyone is demanding to see the anime’s sequel. So, when will the anime return? Here is everything to know.
Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko is a Japanese action fantasy anime series. It is a part of the multimedia franchise and an adaptation of the manga of the same name. Genko and Crunchyroll co-produced the franchise, whereas Studio Gokumi animated its first installment. The anime made its debut on January 5, 2018. It ran for a total of 24 episodes before ending on June 22 of the same year.
Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko Season 2: Renewal Status
The inaugural installment of the anime series got a positive acknowledgment from both the audience and the critics. The latter did point out some flaws in the series, but their overall response remained on the positive side. Currently, Katana Maidens have a score of 6.81 on MyAnimeList. It is above average but not that high. Yet, the anime is pretty popular as it has more than 67K members in its MAL group. The demand to see this series return for its second season is also very high.
It has already been three years, and now fans are getting desperate to know about the third season. But the main reason behind the delay is the lack of source material. The manga series only has three volumes, and the anime has already used them throughout its run of 24 episodes. Therefore, now Studio Gokumi has no content left to make Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko Season 2. So, now it is very unlikely for the production company to renew the series for another installment.
Katana Maidens: Plot Details!
In the world of Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko, there existed an elite group of shrines known as Toji who saved the world from malevolent beings known as Aratama who are trying to destroy humanity. But now, in modern times, these warriors are in the elite police force, but their job remains the same. The government there also established some schools so that the girls there can learn swordsmanship and help their fellow Toji in protecting the world.
Kanami Etou, one of the students and a representative of Minoseki Academy in a sword-fighting competition, met a mysterious Hiyoru Juujou. Both of them rise to the top of the competition, but something unexpected happens that creates chaos in the world of Toji.
Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko Season 2: Release Date
As we stated above, it is improbable that the anime series will return for another run. But if Crunchyroll and Genco decide to give it another shot, then fans can expect Katana Maidens: Toji No Miko Season 2 to premiere in 2023. As of now, we can only wait for the green flag.
