With successful anime series such as “Isekai Quartet” and “KonoSuba,” the isekai genre has witnessed a resurgence in popularity among fans. We like the concept of being taken to another wonderful planet where skyscrapers have been replaced by castles and aeroplanes have been replaced by dragons.
However, with the recent surge in the number of isekai works, it may appear that it is impossible for new anime series within the genre to distinguish themselves. However, when it first premiered earlier this year, “Seirei Gensouki: Spirit Chronicles” attempted to achieve this goal in its own way.
The anime is based on a light novel series written by Yuri Kitayama, which is the inspiration for the show. There is a protagonist from our world who awakens in another, but he also happens to share his consciousness with another person, which makes for an interesting dynamic in the series.
“Spirit Chronicles” makes a hilarious mess of the concept of reincarnation, which is generally simplified by the isekai genre in the first episode's opening scene, which is not the case here. The first season of “Spirit Chronicles” has, admittedly, raised more questions than it has provided solutions by the time the season's finale is shown. However, thanks to the upcoming second season, we'll have another opportunity to find out the answers we've been looking for.
Until further notice, here is everything we know about Season 2 of “Spirit Chronicles.”
How Many Characters will be Featured in Spirit Chronicles Season 2?
Haruto Amakawa and Rio, the two major characters of Season 1 of “Spirit Chronicles” (available on Crunchyroll), are introduced in this episode. One of the most horrific traffic accidents in recent memory claims the life of Haruto, a young Japanese man. Rio, a young man who lives in a fantasy world, is orphaned after his mother is brutally murdered, leaving him to raise himself.
Because the two characters appear to be one and the same person, or at the very least have the same mentality, they are said to be linked to one another. Rio appears to be a reincarnation of Haruto after uncovering the characteristics and memories of his previous existence.
Season 2 will include the return of both protagonists as they attempt to resolve their separate difficulties. Season 2 is likely to bring back characters such as Rio's teacher Celia Claire and his contracted spirit Aishia, amongst others. The reappearance of one renowned character, on the other hand, has piqued the interest of fans.
This is a touching moment for everyone who is watching when Rio eventually comes upon Haruto's childhood buddy Miharu, who has been transported to the present day of Japan. The fact that Miharu is so important to Haruto suggests that we should expect to see a lot more of her in the following season.
In What Way Does Spirit Chronicles Season 2 Differ from the First Season?
It is essentially Rio's existence that is the centre of Season 1 of “Spirit Chronicles,” as well as how he copes with the knowledge that Haruto is linked to him. In the Season 1 conclusion, Rio intervenes in his companion Celia's arranged marriage, which has been planned by his family. Throughout the course of the story, Haruto discovers that more people from his world have been reborn into Haruto's realm.
With this knowledge in hand, it is reasonable to presume that the plot of Season 2 will provide additional insight into how Rio and Haruto were intertwined together. In addition, Rio's ascent to superhuman power upon his discovery of his connection to Haruto could be explored in Season 2.
Whatever the case, it's apparent that the second season of “Spirit Chronicles” will be drawing on a lot of content from the original light novel series. According to Monsters and Critics, the light novels were covered up to Volume 5 for Season 1 of “Spirit Chronicles” on the anime network.
The twentieth book of the light novel series was published in the fall of this year (via Firecross). As a result, the series will have a broader pool of material from which to draw inspiration in the years to come as a result of this decision.
Do you Have an Idea When the Second Season of Spirit Chronicles Will be Available?
Season 1 of the ‘Spirit Chronicles' concluded its broadcasting in September of 2021. While some viewers may have wanted for more episodes than the show's initial 12-episode run, the bad news is that they will almost probably have to wait until the following season to get their fill of the series.
Official Twitter account for the anime series made the statement that a second season was in development on November 5, 2021, indicating that it was indeed in the works. The announcement was accompanied by a special Season 1 review film, which served as a commemorative piece. There was no indication, however, as to when it would be made available.
Also, keep in mind that the debut date for the first season of “Spirit Chronicles” was revealed in late November 2020 (via Anime News Network) and that it will take place in July 2021. It's likely that we'll see a repeat of the situation that occurred in the summer of 2022, with Season 2 being announced in November and the next season being released in the summer of 2022.
According to current indications, Crunchyroll will be responsible for the distribution of “Spirit Chronicles” Season 2 in the United States and Canada. On December 27, 2021, they will broadcast Season 1 in its entirety as it originally aired in Japan, and they will release an official English dub of Season 1 to coincide with the premiere of Season 2.
