In spite of all the controversies and debates surrounding the first season of Redo Of Healer, there has been a high demand for the second season. Ecchi and harem stories are only hated on the ideal part of the internet. Behind the scenes, people are always eager to watch more of such stories. In this particular case, Redo Of Healer Season 2 not only hold the obvious part of the story, but it also has an intriguing part of the plot. So, will fans ever get the second season of this dark fantasy story? Why is the series not renewed yet? Here is everything you need to know about the sequel.
Also known as Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi, Redo Of Healer is a dark fantasy novel series that first came out in December 2016. Rui Tsukiyo is the creator of the franchise. After the manga came out in 2017, the anime was also announced soon after. In January 2021, Studio TNK brought the first episode of the anime. And now, the debate around the second season is rising yet again. So, here is everything that fans need to know about the future of the franchise.
Redo Of Healer Season 2: Renewal Status
As of the last update, there has been no official word on the return of the second season of Redo the Healer. The last that fans saw of the series was in March 2021. Ever since that time, the makers of the series have not returned to talk about the sequel. One of the major reasons for such a long delay in the release is the number of controversies that the series found itself in. Much like the other ecchi and harem anime that was released on the public platform, this one also faced a strong backlash due to its questionable content.
While Animoon delayed the series to the verge of cancellation, other services refused to air the series on the prime television network. A similar case was traced in the light novel when it first came out. Even so, the series was quite popular and remained to be in high demand. However, it has not been renewed by Studio TNK as of yet.
Redo Of Healer Season 2: Production Updates!
Since there is no confirmation on the return of the second season, the production also remains under the umbrella of uncertainty. If the case of Redo Of Healer Season 2 is to be compared with that of World’s End Harem, there might be a short cap through which the second season might get a release window. In the case of the former, the makers pulled back the project after the release of the first two episodes. With a hiatus of around three months, the harem was bound to return to the screens with necessary alterations.
If Studio Gokumi can take a break to retouch certain inappropriate aspects, then surely TNK can also take a risk shorter than this. Without even airing the series halfway, the chances of losing airing slots and money are far less in this case. Besides, the series reflects a good number in terms of reception. Redo Of Healer scores as high as 6.5 on MyAnimeList with a backing of more than three million fans. So, the production work of the anime might not be a tough call for the animation company with considerable changes.
The first season of Redo Of Healer spent most of the time introducing the world and the characters set in that world. The story follows a healing magician named Keyaru who is abused by all his customers as they come. After finding the job of selling his body exhaustive and ethically wrong, he learns that a healing magician was the highest class of magicians that existed in the world. Thus, he decided to use these powers in his favor. Thus, he decided to take revenge on everyone who had abused him in the past.
In the last episode of the first season, titled “The Healer Starts a New Journey!” The King of the nation released the order that he wanted to stop the wrath of Keyarga and get him arrested. Meanwhile, Keyarga has also decided that he was finding some empathy for the girls that came into his life. However, he was still decided to take revenge upon Bullet for using his body in the past.
Now, if the second season ever makes it to the screens, it will follow the same traces as the first season. The story will continue with Keyarga/Keyaru continuing his mission of chasing down all his abusers. However, it is most likely that he will be faced by Bullet this time. Bullet now has two reasons to chase the perpetrator. First is, of course, his personal lust. The second one is the orders that he has got from the King to bring back Keyaru.
Light Novel Compared To Anime
Bypassing the original novel series by the makers, the anime draws a story from the 2017 light novel of the series. In totality, the source material has serialized nine volumes so far. Out of these nine books, the first season of twelve episodes only used three light novels. Even as the series was airing, the pacing was a high debate. It was argued that the pacing of the anime was slower than that of the original story. However, in many parts, the anime skipped major plotlines from the original source material.
Anyhow, the finale episode and the plot of the third volume ended on a similar note. Thus, Redo Of Healer Season 2 still has six more volumes to adapt a story from. In fact, if TNK Studios continue to follow the same pacing as the pilot season, then this material might branch out into two more seasons.
Redo Of Healer Season 2: Release Date
At the time of writing, there has not been an update on the release of the second season of Redo Of Healer. However, if the makers are willing to take charge of the criticism, a release window might come real soon. As of now, fans can hope that the production work commences in the early months of 2022. If that happens, the animation work will be completed in a year’s time. Thus, fans might be able to catch a glimpse of this adult series by the early months of 2023. The release between the Spring to Summer 2023 slate.
