One of the most difficult aspects of making anime is coming up with new ideas. For decades, anime has brought joy to millions of people. It does, however, have established tropes and clichés, just like many other genres. However, “Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou,” or “Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest,” is a recent anime series that mainly manages to avoid sliding into those same familiar scenes.
The setting of “Arifureta” is typical of anime. Hajime Nagumo is the protagonist and an otaku. Hajime and a group of his classmates are transferred to Tortus, a magical planet where all of Hajime’s classmates have superior superpowers to him. After a betrayal by one of his friends, Hajime takes a backseat and begins to enjoy violence and risk. The series then devolves into Harem territory, with Hajime pursuing various classmates while they all attempt to preserve Tortus from demons.
In 2019, the first season of “Arifureta” premiered, covering the first four volumes of the manga on which it is based. Six additional volumes of potential source material remain to be adapted in the future. Here’s what we know about a potential “Arifureta” second season.
When Will Arifureta Season 2 Be Available
Season 2 of “arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest” Will Air in Japan During the Winter 2022 Anime Season, According to Anime Collective. Its Premiere Date Is Currently Set for January 2022, but No Particular Date Has Been Set.
Episodes from Season 2 of “Arifureta” will most likely follow Season 1’s timetable and launch online two weeks after they air in Japan, for English-speaking viewers who prefer to watch the dubbed version. The English-language adaptation of “Arifureta” is presently owned by Funimation. Season 1 started in Japan on July 8, 2021, and the first episode was released on July 22 on Funimation. New episodes of “Arifureta” will be accessible in the United States on Mondays at 9:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time if the second season follows the same schedule as the first.
Two short OVAs were also included in Season 1’s second and third DVD releases. On Feb. 26, 2020, four months after the Season 1 finale, the third DVD set was released. So, if OVAs are made for Season 2, expect them three to four months after the Japanese finale.
What Will the Arifureta Season 2 Cast Be Like
Most of the Japanese voice cast from “Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest” Season 1 will return for the anime’s second season, according to Monsters & Critics. Toshinari Fukamachi, who plays Hajime Nagumo, the main character, and Yuuki Kuwahara, who portrays Yue, Hajime’s vampire love interest, are among the cast members. Also returning are the actors that portray Hajime’s classmates. Minami Takahashi, Youko Hikasa, Saori Ounishi, and Yumiri Hanamori play Shea Haulia, Tio Klarus, Kaori Shirasaki, and Shizuku Yaegashi, respectively.
Two new main characters will be introduced in Season 2 of “Arifureta.” Noriko Shibasaki will play Liliana S. B. Heiligh, the princess of Heiligh and an artist. Not, a god Ehit’s messenger is also responsible for Tortus’ creation. In the upcoming season, Rina Satou will play her.
What Does Arifureta Season 2 Have in Store for Us
Season 2 of “Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest” has yet to be revealed, however, based on where Season 1 ended and the current source material, we can make an educated prediction about what it will be about. Season 1 of the anime adapted the first four volumes of the “Arifureta” manga, according to several “Arifureta” enthusiasts on Reddit (although it also left out several major moments). Six more volumes of the “Arifureta” manga could be adapted for the anime.
Our hero Hajime had mostly completed his journey from outcast otaku to danger-seeking bad boy by the time Season 1 finished. The wizard Yukitoshi Shimizu, who had joined with the demons who had overtaken Tortus, was defeated by Hajime and his classmates at the end of the season. Following Shimiziu’s defeat, Hajime and his friends embark on a long journey over the desert to the coastal city of Erisen in volume 5 of the anime. They discover a mystery disease that has been devouring the populace and set out to find a cure along the road. In terms of Hajime’s personal life, he’s been in a will they/won’t they relationship with his main love interest Yue, as is the case with many anime (while also hooking up with his other classmates, since this is a Harem anime). Season 2 might be the year they really go for it, but the program could easily milk it for a few more seasons.
