It has only been a few months since fans last saw King’s Raid on screen, and now they are wondering whether there will be King’s Raid Season 2 or not. The anime series has an intriguing storyline, but it failed to reach its full potential in the inaugural season. As a result, the viewers are hoping to watch more of this show as they believe that it might become better in the sequel. So, has the studio renewed it yet? Here are all the latest details.
King’s Raid or King’s Raid: Ishi wo Tsugumono-tachi is a Japanese action-adventure fantasy anime series. It is the remake of a South Korean mobile game of the same name by Vespa. OLM and Sunrise Beyond animation studios jointly animated the first season of this show. The anime’s premiere episode aired on October 3, 2020. It ran for a total of 26 episodes before concluding on March 27, 2021.
King’s Raid Anime Review
The first season of this show opened on a positive note as it sets a pretty interesting narrative. Its premiere episode managed to catch the viewers’ attention. In the initial episodes, the series even stunned the viewers by showing the demons killing a lot of humans. Then, the journey to the protagonists to find the holy sword begins in order to kill the demons. The anime is not unique, but its story is decent and interesting.
Surprisingly, its characters were also good and had their own backstory. However, King’s Raid certainly disappoints the viewers when it comes to its art and animation. Along with that, its OP, ED, and all the OSTs are really average. At first, the show seems pretty interesting, but it turned out to be another average fantasy drama by its end.
King’s Raid Season 2: Renewal Status!
The inaugural season of the anime got a mixed response from everyone. It got some positive reviews from the viewers, but it certainly failed to impress the critics. This fact had an effect on the ratings of this show. Currently, it has a score of 5.99 on MyAnimeList, which is definitely low. But the show has almost 50K members in its MAL group, indicating that it is quite popular. Since the anime follows the plot of the game, it won’t have any problem in getting the source material for King’s Raid Season 2. Now it all depends on the disc sales of this anime series. If they make a good profit for the producers, the latter might wave the green flag for the second season.
King’s Raid Season 2: Release Date
It is hard to guess the release date of the anime’s sequel before an official update from its makers. If the renewal for the following installment comes by the end of this year, then the fans can expect King’s Raid Season 2 to hit the screens sometime in 2023. We will update this section whenever the green flag arrives. So, stay connected to The Anime Daily for all future anime and manga updates.
