Will Akashic Records Of Bastard Magic Instructor Season 2 be released?
The season one finale aired in June 2017, the last time we heard about the show. Liden Films has declined to make official statements on the release of Akashic Records Of Bastard Magic Instructor Season 2. The anime is about to celebrate its third anniversary, and fans have become much more anxious now.
Well, despite the delay, Akashic Records’ second season has a good chance of returning. Unlike American TV shows, it’s quite common for animes to have long, excruciating gaps between them. In fact, some popular animated shows like One-Punch Man and Log Horizon have a four to five year hiatus between seasons. Therefore, it’s not uncommon for Liden Films to take the time to revive the anime.
On the other hand, the critically acclaimed anime is very popular among viewers. It was one of the most successful projects created by Liden Films. Plus, a second season can actually pay off bigger for producers. Since the light novel series is on the run, it can also help increase their sales. Therefore, it’s hard to believe the studio will drop a series with so much potential.
One thing which all fans must keep in mind is that Liden Films isn’t a production house that is very well known for making anime spanning two seasons. Other than one instance, the studio has never made any anime series which were longer than one season.
As things stand today, Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor doesn’t have a second season lined up. However, a lot of fans are expecting a second season to be green lit very soon. As things stand today, season 2 of Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor can be expected to be released sometime late in 2021 or early 2022.
