It is not every day that the Devil emerges from the tomb to tempt mankind. Eight years ago, the anime production firm White Fox created a 13-episode series titled “Devil Is a Part-Timer!” that aired on Cartoon Network.
After being transported to modern-day Tokyo and reduced to human form, Satan Jacob, an interdimensional demon lord created by Satoshi Wagahara and illustrated by 029 (Oniku), the show follows the adventures of Satan Jacob, an interdimensional demon lord created by Satoshi Wagahara and illustrated by 029 (Oniku).
Soon after, he adopts the alias Sadao and begins working at a nearby fast-food restaurant, earning him the moniker “Devil Is a Part-Timer!”
According to The Cinemaholic, the first season only adapted the first two volumes of the original light novel. The second season will adapt the remaining volumes. Over the course of this period, Sadao meets and develops connections with various creatures from his homeworld of Ente Isla, including his former adversary Emilia Justina, whom he had previously fought.
In contrast to this, the scarcity of adaptations beyond the first few volumes has left fans clamoring for more. It is a relief that they are finally receiving what they desire. “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” says the narrator. Season 2 of the show is on its way.
A teaser for Season 2 of “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” was released on YouTube the same day it was revealed at the Kadokawa Corporation's Light Novel Expo, although there is still no official release date for the show's second season.
Season 2 of The Walking Dead is expected to premiere in early 2023, according to Cinemaholic; however, this is only a prediction. Having said that, it is not a completely unjust decision. Single seasons of anime are frequently produced over a period of several years.
However, without official confirmation from White Fox or the show's publishers, it is impossible to say anything substantial. During the first season's original broadcast, Funimation was in charge of distributing the episodes online.
It is unknown whether this will continue to be the case, but given that the business has also announced Season 2 on the official Funimation site, it is plausible. Likewise, they provide no information on when Season 2 of “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” will be released.
We do know one definite truth regarding “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!” and that is that he is a part-timer. The cast for Season 2 has been announced. At the very least, we now know who will be in the Japanese dub's cast.
Fans of this version will be pleased to know that all of the main voice actors from Season 1 will be returning for Season 2 of the show. Whether or if this will be the case with dubs in other languages, on the other hand, is yet uncertain.
Unfortunately, this is a disappointment for those who appreciate dubbing, as they cannot expect their favorite characters to have the same voice actor anymore. However, some English voice performers for the program have shown an interest in returning and a readiness to do so on social media platforms (via Twitter).
While this is by no means a definitive confirmation of their comeback, it does serve as a strong hint that the English dub of Season 2 will receive the same treatment as the Japanese counterpart.
‘The Devil Is a Part-Timer!' ended with the aftermath of a struggle between Sadao and the angel Sariel, which brought the season to a close. Sadao shares his joy with Shirou and appears to have developed a solid, pleasant friendship with Emi (Emilia's contemporary name), despite the fact that they were formerly adversaries.
Finally, she appears in the last episode, rushing to Sadao's aid when he becomes trapped in the rain.
However, there are many more volumes of the original light novel to adapt before the series is completed. Providing White Fox stays true to the tale of its source material, we may expect to see Emi and Sadao continue to grow in their love as additional supernatural entities enter the battle.
The third volume, in particular, gets things started when the gang discovers a golden apple that gives birth to a young girl who claims to be the daughter of Sadao and Emi. As the couple and their friends struggle with motherhood and other issues, there is a lot of laughter and suspense.
