Skeleton Knight in Another World Season 2 Renewal Status
As mentioned, Skeleton Knight in Another World hasn’t been publicly renewed for Season 2 yet, and unfortunately, the chances of a return now depend on source material versus popularity.
On the one hand, the anime adaptation of Skeleton Knight in Another World has plenty of source material from the original light novel series available for a second season. Per anime geekthe anime will likely find a breakpoint around volume 3 of Ennki Hakari’s original series.
The good news is that from April 23approx10 light novel volumes were made released in Japan. That means there’s enough content to be adapted for television over potentially three full 12-episode seasons.
The bad news is that the anime doesn’t seem to have significantly increased sales of either the light novel or the manga follow-up; That can be a frustratingly important sticking point for anime renewal. Unfortunately, Skeleton Knight in Another World was not in Oricon’s top 20 sales ranking for April 2022 when the anime premiered, for both the light novel and manga series.
The anime also scores a 6.8/10 IMDB70% up anilist and 3.9/5 respectively Anime planet. Skeleton Knight in Another World is also rated 7.24/10 MyAnimeListSo only on the 21stSt top rated series from the spring anime slate. The TV adaptation only managed a peak of 13th place on AniTrendz Ongoing fan polls.
While these results aren’t necessarily a reason to lose all hope for Skeleton Knight in Another World Season 2, they certainly won’t help considering light novel and manga sales aren’t increasing.
Interestingly, despite these rather underwhelming results, there’s a chance that Studio Kai, the team behind the anime adaptation, might take a slightly different view of these reviews. Skeleton Knight in Another World is arguably one of their biggest titles to date, and of their six previous projects, two have been sequels.
With their next three titles all slated for release later this year (Prince of Tennis and Shine Post in July, Fuuto PI in August), the studio could be looking to start early development on Skeleton Knight season 2 by the end of 2022 .
Where to read the original series
While 10 volumes of the light novel series have been published in Japan, nine of these are currently available in English, with volume 10 scheduled for release in March 2023.
10 volumes of the manga adaptation have also been released in Japan, eight of which are accessible to English readers. Copies of the manga can be purchased from Amazon Kindle, book Walker, google play, kobo and Barnes & Nobles angle Service.
