The Irregular at Magic High School is a good example how Anime continues to showcase its storytelling potential. Originally a manga and light novel, the series offers fans just about everything they could ever want from a fantasy Anime series, with touches of light comedy and surprising drama. From an expansive cast, to smart plot developments, and some truly magic visuals, there is a lot to like about this show. It is not surprising that fans of the first season have been eagerly waiting for news on The Irregular at Magic High School season 2.
It has been at least a few years since the first season. While a 2016 film release helped ease the waiting for many fans, it still left them hoping for another run of episodes. The series and assorted works based on the original novel have, to date, failed to cover the entire by Tsutomu Satō. Ask any fan, and they will promise you there is still so much to tell.
So, when will there be another season of The Irregular at Magic High School?
Catching Up With The Irregular At Magic High School
The original novel series was first release more than a decade ago in 2008. Tsutomu Satō quickly found an audience for his story of two siblings beginning their high school education. Sounds simple enough, but things are a bit different in this world. In this universe, magic is an everyday part of life. The series differs from similar stories by establishing that technology has also run side by side with the evolution of magic. It is a fascinating world, to be sure, and that certainly explains its popularity with fans.
The sibling relationship between Tatsuya and Miyuki drives a good deal of the story. There are certainly other characters of note, as well. The Irregular at Magic High School also features a certain element of social commentary, in terms of how magic is viewed, as well as how magic users are treated. There is also the fact that the series is set after World War III, which left the world under the control of just four nations. The story is primarily set in Japan. It all makes for a heady brew of action, comedy, adventure, and a unique blend of technology and the occult.
The light novels alone have sold more than 8 million copies. There have been spinoffs, one-offs, and other variations. There was also a film released in 2017, a full three years after the first season of the Anime had concluded. The film continued the storyline, in addition to receiving significant praise from both fans and critics. Unfortunately for fans, the film was released more than two years ago. There is a good deal of anticipation and speculation on the possibility of season two.
When To Expect The Irregular At Magic High School
With manga, light novels, an Anime, web shows, and even video games, there is no question that The Irregular at Magic High School is wildly popular. For many, it just strikes them as common sense that there would be another season. With only two years removed from the last update, fans refuse to give up hope on the notion.
Certainly, series creator Tsutomu Satō, who penned the recent film, seems enthusiastic for the Anime to continue. What is the delay?
The truth of the matter is that we don’t really know what the specific reason for delay comes down to. There is a strong argument that there really hasn’t been much of a delay at all. We are just two years removed from the movie. Fans had to in fact wait three years between season 1 and the film. You can make the case that the series is more or less on a schedule.
In other words, we would be extremely surprised, if there wasn’t a The Irregular at Magic High School update by 2020. A release date of 2020, or even 2021, is what makes the most sense to us right now.
What To Expect From The Irregular at Magic High School
Given that there is still a lot to take from the source material, there is more than enough to fill an order for The Irregular at Magic High School season two. It is likely that the relationship between our sibling protagonists will continue to develop, particularly in terms of how they manage to get through even a normal day at the high school.
You can expect more from the show’s large cast of characters, as well.
The Future Of The Irregular At Magic High School
Right now, it would be silly to panic, or to assume the worst about season 2 of The Irregular at Magic High School. Our suggestion is to sit tight, and wait for some updates to come from Madhouse, the studio responsible for the Anime.
