Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 Release Date: Trailer And Everything We Know in 2022!
“Wise Man’s Grandchild” is a fantasy isekai series that began as a light novel and was first published in 2015 on the independent Japanese site Shsetsuka ni Nar. Tsuyoshi Yoshioka wrote it and Seiji Kikuchi drew it. Shin Wolford is a modern Japanese guy who gets resurrected into a fantasy world after dying in a catastrophic car accident. In the fictional realm, the mage Merlin Wolford discovers his new infant self and raises him to be one of the most powerful wizards in the land. Shin’s sheltered upbringing and recollections of his old life, on the other hand, make navigating the new world around him more challenging.
The novel has been highly popular since its release, with Kadokawa publishing it and generating manga and anime adaptations (via Anime News Network). The latter of these two shows debuted in 2019 with Silver Link’s animation but has since stopped airing new episodes. Fans are now wondering if there will be a Season 2 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild.”
Season 2 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild” has yet to be officially announced. Before you believe this means the series is over, keep in mind that this isn’t the first time an anime has gone on hiatus. With that in mind, there’s a lot to discuss in terms of what fans may expect from the program if it gets a second season. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild.”
When Will the Second Season of Wise Man’s Grandchild Be Released?
It’s impossible to lock down a precise release date for “Wise Man’s Grandchild” because none of the series’ creators have formally confirmed a second season. The length of Season 2’s possible production cycle is much more worrying. The anime’s first season was announced in 2017, but it wasn’t released until 2019. If the creative process for Season 2 is similar to that of Season 1, fans of the series may have to wait years after the first announcement to see the anime’s continuation.
However, there is a silver lining, at least for those who love viewing dubs. “Wise Man’s Grandchild,” like much other anime, was simulcast in both English and Japanese on Funimation and Crunchyroll (via Anime News Network). So, when Season 2 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild” arrives, dub fans may relax knowing they’ll be able to enjoy it alongside their subtitle-reading peers.
Who Are the Main Characters in Season 2 of Wise Man’s Grandchild?
Yuusuke Kobayashi played Shin in the original Japanese version of the anime (via Myanimelist). Shin, on the other hand, is not alone in his escapades, as he is accompanied by a cast of characters that attend the same magical academy as the protagonist. August von Earlshide (Shouhei Komatsu), Shin’s best friend and the prince of the kingdom, and Sicily von Claude (Rina Honizumi), a fellow academy student and Shin’s love interest, are among them. These characters are played by Daman Mills, Brandon McInnis, and Lindsay Seidel in the English dub, respectively.
This primary trio is accompanied by a slew of additional characters who populate Shin’s weird fantasy realm. There’s Melinda Bowen (Gara Takashima/Cynthia Cranz), Shin’s magical tutor and protector, and Merlin Wolford (Yuusaku Yara/Bruce R. Elliot), Shin’s initial magic teacher and father figure.
Season 2 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild” could feature all of these characters and more. Any new characters’ identities (along with their voice performers) have yet to be revealed.
What Happens in Season 2 of Wise Man’s Grandchild?
Shin defeated the Demonoid army led by Schtrom in the final episode of Season 1 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild.” Despite this, Schtrom continues to be a menace to numerous kingdoms around the world. As a result, Shin chooses to lead his team on a mission to create partnerships with other kingdoms to battle the Demonoid threat.
This chain of events only covers the first few of the 17 volumes produced, according to the manga synopsis published on the online manga site Bookwalker. Silver Link will have more than enough source material to work with if a second season is made.
These volumes cover a wide range of events, from Shin’s brief beach vacation following the aforementioned conflict to his continued efforts to bring the world’s various governments together in a World Union. Unfortunately, fans will have to wait a long time to watch these events unfold. Until then, fans of “Wise Man’s Grandchild” will have to rely on comics and light novels to get their questions answered.
Will There Be a Season 2 Of ‘Wise Man’s Grandchild’?
The anime television series has only 12 episodes in its initial season, which ended on June 26, 2019. The first season garnered rave reviews, and the numbers and scores are encouraging enough to warrant a second season. ‘Wise Man’s Grandchild’ received a 6.60/10 rating from MyAnimeList’s 280,367 users. Given that ‘Kenja no Mago’ is based on a Japanese light novel series of the same name, there are currently 15 volumes in the series.
