Tanya Degurechaff is back in The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2! The series is back after a four-year break and fans on YouTube have erupted after the announcement video. With 500,000 views in 3 days, the hype for Youjo Senki is real!
The light novel series by Carl Zen was first serialized in 2012 in Arcadia, an online publishing website. The light novel series has been published in 13 volumes since its acquisition by Enterbrain in 2013. With almost 6.5 million copies in circulation, the Youjo Senki series qualifies as one of the 50 best-selling light novel titles ever.
A manga adaptation by Chika Toujo soon followed in 2016 and finally the anime adaptation for The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 1 aired in 2017. The season has a 7.98/10 rating from My Anime List and a 7.7/10 from IMDb. Saga of Tanya the Evil is one of the core Isekai projects and was limited to a single season and movie release. With the recent release of a movie, The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 is a highly anticipated return.
The announcement of the second season of Saga of Tanya the Evil anime was followed by a special teaser trailer, poster, and an evil eye ring. Check all the information we have!
The Saga of Tanya The Evil Season 2 Trailer
Fans can watch the Youjo Senki season 2 teaser dropped by Kadokawa (the production studio), on 19th June 2021. Sadly, no revelations about Youjo Senki season 2 release date were done. But we have few speculations.!
The Saga of Tanya The Evil Season 2 Release Date Predictions
With the announcement for The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 in June 2021, it is likely that 2021 will not be the year of return for the anime series. The teaser video of Youjo Senki Season 2 anime ends with the line “Now aggressively in production”.
Assuming that this series will also follow a similar release pattern as most of the Summer 2021 releases, Youjo Senki should be back with season 2 in 2022. That said, the window of release that seems the most likely is Winter Anime 2022- Spring 2022.
The logic behind Spring 2022 is based on the past history of the Season 1 release. It was announced in January 2016 and took 1 year to release on 6th January 2017. 12 episodes of Season 1 continued their run till March 2017.
On the basis of this, Kadokawa the production studio announced the renewal in June 2021. Expect the makers to take a year at least before Season 2 sees the light of day. Expect the premiere to happen in Spring 2022. Till then we will keep you updated!
The Saga of Tanya The Evil Spoilers
If you haven’t watched Youjo Senki/The Saga of Tanya The Evil, one thing you must note is that the title is very appropriate for what the show presents.
The protagonist(?) of the series is Tanya Degurechaff, a young girl with blonde hair and blue eyes. Fate has it that she becomes a mage in the military at age 9 and is far ahead of any of the other soldiers in terms of intellect, potential magic ability and well, bloodlust. The baffling twist is that this little girl is the reincarnation of a cold, calculating, atheist Japanese man who died but seemed to have been thrown into another life by Being X as he calls it. This Being is supposed to be God.
Reincarnated, but with memories of her previous life intact, Tanya makes her way up the military and continues with her ruthless and almost sadistic ways, Being X ruins her joy by sending her to the front lines after giving Tanya charge of the 203rd mage battalion. With her impeccable skill and fearsome persona, Tanya is given the nickname of ‘The Devil of Rhine Theatre’.
How many episodes will be in The Saga of Tanya The Evil Season 2?
Season 1 ends with the 203rd mage battalion celebrating their victory against a republican assault and an announcement of truce. However, the new enemy has already been decided. Being x is back to haunt Tanya.
The Saga of Tanya The Evil Season 1 of the anime was released in January 2017 with 12 episodes. The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 is likely to follow the same pattern. While little is known of the details, it is certain that Season 2 will be much more intense than its predecessors.
Season 1 used Volumes 1-3 of the source material. The Youjo Senki Movie released in 2019 was based on all of volume 4. Therefore it is safe to assume that The Saga of Tanya The Evil Season 2 will be taking off from volume 5. With 12 volumes of the light novel already published, there is no shortage of source material for the upcoming season and at least one more season. It would only be fair to expect a Season 3 for Youjo Senki.
The end of season 1 ended with a truce but foreshadowed a bigger war on the way. Mary Sioux has been imbued with the powers of Being X. The movie documents the fierce battle between Tanya and Mary, the latter being a firm believer in the Creator and their grace and benevolence. Tanya manages to injure Mary but not kill her. And thus, Mary is set to make a return in The Saga of Tanya The Evil Season 2.
The upcoming Season will see Tanya busy with the developments of her project Kampfgruppe and her new acquired authority after her promotion to the rank of a Major. Of one the big missions of this Season will be for the 203rd to attack the ship, Queen of Anjou where Tanya faces of with Mary again.
Since the story for The Saga of Tanya The Evil Movie follows after the end of Season 1, it would be highly recommended to watch the movie before watching Season 2.
