Will There Be Rokka No Yuusha Season 2? (2024 Update)

Fans have long been waiting, but unfortunately, a second season of Rokka No Yuusha remains officially unconfirmed. This leaves us with the lingering question: will a new season ever happen, and when?

Let’s explore the reasons behind the delay and whether there’s any hope for the future.

Rokka No Yuusha Season 2

Understanding Rokka: Braves of the Six Flowers

This popular mystery-fantasy anime, originally titled Rokka no Yuusha,  boasts a dedicated global following.  It’s adapted from Ishio Yamagata’s successful light novel series (illustrated by Miyagi), which debuted in 2011.

We follow Adlet Mayer, the self-proclaimed “Strongest Man in the World,” as he journeys to the Piena continent, eager to become one of the legendary Braves.

Takeo Takahashi directed the first season, animated by Studio Passione. However, we still don’t know if they’ll return for a potential second season.

Since its Japanese premiere in July 2015, fans have eagerly awaited “Rokka No Yuusha Season 2 Episode 1” or any form of continuation.

Other Anticipated Anime Sequels

While you wait, why not explore other highly anticipated sequels like Re: Zero Season 3, Noragami Season 3, Vinland Saga Season 2, or Demon Slayer Season 3?

Is Rokka No Yuusha Season 2 a Possibility?

Sadly, Rokka No Yuusha Season 2 seems a distant dream.  Had producers planned a second season, it likely would have happened already.  Over five years have passed, and interest has waned among fans, the author, and potentially the studio.

The core reason lies in profitability. The first season’s Blu-ray sales were disappointingly low.  In 2015, the light novels also saw declining popularity, and Rokka merchandise performed poorly.

Perhaps the biggest obstacle is the light novel’s indefinite hiatus since 2015. With only 6 volumes published and no sign of more, a second season lacks strong source material.

Rokka No Yuusha Season 2 Release Date: The Harsh Truth

Since Rokka No Yuusha Season 2 hasn’t been confirmed, canceled, or announced, there’s no release date or countdown. With poor sales and the light novel’s hiatus, the chances are bleak.

It’s tempting to cling to hope, but in 2023, the likelihood of a second season feels near impossible.  The author’s silence on the series suggests a lack of creative drive. Still, if you’re longing for more of Rokka’s world, consider picking up the light novels from Volume 2, where the anime left off.
