As a fellow otaku, I have watched countless of good anime that I believe need a second season! Therefore, I put together the top 5 animes that need a second season, because well, they are just too good to pass on.
1. the devil is a part-timer!
Is been six years since the release of The Devil is a Part-Timer! and not a single hint of season 2 (at least that I am aware of that is, trust me, I looked everywhere!). The comedy, fantasy series was a major hit for its humor, and adventure of the Demon Lord Santa entering the human world and trying to survive the life in Japan. Being sent to another realm where magic is limited, Demon Lord Santa does his best to live Tokyo, Japan despite being unintentionally sent there when he was running for his life with his general Alciel. Being chased out of his demon realm, he encounters his nemesis the hero Emilia, and she is bound to defeat the demon lord! However, that must wait, since Sadao Maou needs to ensure he shows up to his part-time at MgRonald! The story follows Sadao Maou living in the human world and trying to get back to his world, where he can continue to be the demon king, but till then he is stuck as a human experiencing many hilarious situations. The big question is, why is there no season 2 for The Devil is a Part-Timer! and if there is, when will it come out? There have been rumors the anime will not be getting another season because it has not been decided yet by the production company's higher ups. So sorry guys.
2. yona of the dawn
As a shoujo fan, I can say Yona of the Dawn is one of the my FAVORITE anime series! You get comedy, romance, historical fiction, and adventure all into one season. I can definitely say that I am not the only fan rooting for this awesome historical drama to receive a second season. The story follows a young naive princess, Yona, that is being overprotected by her father. Her father is considered to be a 'weak' king and is killed by Su-Won, Yona's childhood love and cousin, and Yona is faced with the harsh reality of her fate. As Su-Won is about to dispose of Yona, she is quickly rescued by the devilish handsome Hak, Yona's guard and childhood friend. Together Yona and Hak escape the castle and meet with an ex-high priest that tells them to seek out the legendary dragons that will help Yona and her kingdom. The story continues to follow the adventures of Yona seeking the dragons and fulfilling her destiny. As epic and amazing as this series is, it will likely NOT get a second season. My shoujo heart is hurt but, unfortunately, the series did not make the financial cut it was suppose to. But we can always dream it will in ten years, right?
3. blood lad
Blood Lad is one of the funniest dark fantasy anime I have yet to watch! Staz, is an otaku vampire, that refuses to feed off humans and prefers to indulge his time playing video games, watching anime, and reading manga. One fateful day, he gets the chance to meet a real human girl, Fuyumi Yanagi, that stumbles upon the demon realm and develops a 'crush' on her. Due to some circumstances, Staz must leave the human girl alone in his room while he goes off to fight a monster attempting to take over his territory. After he finishes his epic fight, he goes back and encounters a ghost version of Fuyumi, that has died at the jaws of a carnivorous plant. Flabbergasted, Staz decides to help Fuyumi get back to her human form, thus embarking on an epic adventure that is both hilarious and adventurous. So will this anime ever get a season two? Probably not, because the production studio, Brain's Base, usually does not follow up on sequels of its anime productions. Perhaps another anime production will take over in a few years? Hmm...maybe, let's keep our fingers crossed.
4. yuri on ice!!!
Yaoi on Ice!!!...ahem, I mean Yuri on Ice!!! is a very entertaining sports anime, that even a non-sports fan such as myself enjoyed it. The anime series was a tremendous hit when it aired back in 2016, it became a huge sensation on the internet by otakus and professional ice skaters alike. The story follows an aspiring young skater, Yuri Katsuki, and his struggles of low self-esteem as he aims to be a top notch professional skater. He quickly gains the support form the world famous Russian ice skater, Victor Nikiforov that becomes his coach as well as his darling. Along the way, the audience is introduced to various ice skaters from different parts of the world that also have their own goals and dreams for performing beautifully on ice. The series was well received and also appraised for taking a different angle on yaoi or boy love, than other anime series in the genre. Even though, there has been no news of season 2, fans can expect a movie release at some point in 2019. The production company has been extremely busy making the movie production, there has been no announcement for season 2 project yet. However, since this is a very famous anime series, I am sure there will be a second season near the future (or at least I hope so!).
5. absolute duo
Absolute Duo is one of those animes that do not get enough recognition in the anime community. The fantasy, action, romance anime series aired roughly 6 years ago with no current announcement of a sequel. The story follows two young students, Tor and Julia, that attend Koryo Academy that teaches students how to wield internal weapons known as Blaze. Tor is a somewhat of an outcast, that wields a shield Blaze and is viewed as having very little potentials. Julia, a beautiful foreign aristocrat, wields a powerful weapon and within her resides an incredible amount of power. When both Tor and Julia are bound to become partners, they become the absolute duo. Like many other anime series, the producing company has not made a season two because it likely did not make the financial cut it was meant to. However, it does not mean the anime is not good! It is definitely worth the watch and I highly recommend it.
