Anime fans across the world are eagerly awaiting wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2. The first season took the anime world by storm and has left fans of the show wanting more. Kenja no Mago has become everyone’s favourite anime show and been heavily discussed across the internet. But the question is, will we see season 2 of the hit show on our screens anytime soon?
Wise Man’s Grandchild or Kenja no Mago as it is commonly known, is a light novel series written by Tsuyoshi Yoshioka and illustrated by Seiji Kikuchi. It was created back in 2015 and has been loved by fans ever since. Silver Link studio took the reins and adapted the novel into an anime series. It aired in 2019 and became instantly popular. It has a large following both inside Japan and around the world.
Luckily for fans eagerly awaiting Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2, the signs are looking pretty optimistic as it continues to grow in popularity. We’ve got the latest and greatest information on the Kenja no Mago Season 2 release, so check it out below.
Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 Production
There are several interested parties in getting Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 off the ground as quickly as possible. Silverlink and Kadokawa are already involved, but some companies unrelated to the production are also queuing up.
Kenja no Mago has a big fanbase that is fiercely loyal after only such a short period, so a second season of the show is definitely going to happen, we are all just eagerly awaiting the green light. Season 1 of Wise Man’s Grandchild was reviewed positively by fans and was also a hit commercial success. The second season of Wise Man’s Grandchild is likely to generate even more money as the fan base grows.
There has also been the release of the Wise Man’s Grandchild mobile game which has boosted its popularity among gaming fans. It has also quelled the concerns of anxious fans as they get their Kenja no Mago fix. The traction that the game has garnered will surely help towards Season 2 of Wise Man’s Grandchild being renewed.
Are we too impatient for Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2?
The first season of Kenja no Mago only finished a short while ago, so are we being too impatient demanding a second season already. Well, at Entertainment Dose we love the show so it can’t come soon enough. However, unlike their US counterparts, anime series have quite long gaps between each season and can go years without being renewed. So it isn’t unusual that Silver Link and Kadokawa haven’t reached a formal decision yet.
What makes fans worry is that Silver Link are not renowned for making follow up seasons to their shows. But there are some exceptions to this rule this Strike Witches and Strikes The Blood. Hopefully, Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 is another exception to their one season rule.
Is There Adequate Source Material To Make Season 2?
Issues of the Kenja no Mago light novel series are still being made, and as of February 2020, there are eleven volumes in total. The first season of Wise Man’s Grandchild anime adaption only used three of the volumes from the source material for a total of 12 episodes.
Therefore, there is more than enough material to create a Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 and even enough for a third installment, and beyond. So it’s just a matter of waiting.
Kenja no Mago Season 2: What Will Happen Next?
The plot of Kenja no Mago centres around a Japanese salaryman who dies in a tragic car accident. He is then reborn into another world as a child. The world he now lives in is filled with magic and demons. Merlin Wolford finds him and raises him as his grandson, naming him Shin. Merlin teaches Shin, and he becomes powerful. However, what he doesn’t teach him is plain old common sense, so Shin is sent to a Magic Academy.
The first season of Wise Man’s Grandchild concludes with Shin, Sicily, and their friends the Ultimate Magicians, preparing to fight the antagonist Storm. With three volumes of the books being used for the first installment of the show, it makes sense that Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 will start off using volume four and run until the sixth or seventh book. It will centre around Shin’s fight with Storm and how he handles the demos.

Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2: Release Date
Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 has yet to get the green light from Silver Link. But the popularity of the show is undeniable which we think puts it in good stead for a second season renewal anytime now. Realistically with everything that has gone on this year, don’t expect a release date sooner than the mid-2021.
