Is There Any Hope for The Devil is a Part Timer Season 2?
If there is any deserving anime for season 2 it has to be this anime. The devil is a part timer season 1 was a huge hit and fans since then have been eagerly waiting for the second iteration of their beloved anime series. As of now no clear information from white fox is available on the matter. The anime has neither been canceled nor given a green light for another season.
With the light novels now reaching more than 20 volumes, there are endless possibilities for the anime adaption. Season 1 of the devil is a part-timer only covers the main plot of a few light novels and there is a great amount of quality content yet to be explored. The author Satoshi Wagahara himself is a fan of the anime series and has done considerable efforts for the reboot of the anime.
Eventually though what it all comes down to is WhiteFox studio. With the studio being engaged in the production of many other anime its most likely we will not see season 2 anytime soon. Despite all the efforts of the fans and the other people surrounding the anime, the final decision will be whether WhiteFox sees it as a potential profit and goes ahead with another season or cancels it altogether eventually because at the end of the day an anime is also a business first.
Not all hope is lost though as the production can be picked up by another studio yes its Netflix we are talking about. With the devil is a part timer being streamed on the platform and Netflix pumping huge sums of money into anime, it’s not very unlikely. If this happens fans will finally be able to get what they have been wanting for a long time.
Expected Plot of The Devil Is a Part Timer Season 2
There is no official saying in this regard but many speculations can be made based on the common happenings in the previous season. It is widely believed that in season 2 the demon king satan will take up the role of a superhero and help civilians, saving their lives with his experience as being a former holder of magical capabilities. It is also expected that the demon king will be more focused on reaching the top of the social ladder among human society.
Some greater twist to the story is also expected and the appearance of a new character is also likely. With the plethora of material available in the light novel and the manga series its no wonder what exactly could be adapted into the anime series. One thing is for certain though that the anime won’t shy from portraying the difficulty associated with the most mundane tasks of our beloved characters and being a hilariously cute one at that.
