Demon Lord Retry Season 2 Release Date
The first season of the anime that consisted of 12 episodes was the first broadcast from July 4, 2019, to September 19, 2019.
As of this writing, there has been no confirmation yet as to when Season 2 will come out.
The show makers have not hinted whether there will be a second season for Demon Lord Retry. So, could there be a new season of the series?
Fans are still hopeful for another season and speculate on what’s to come next.
The chances for the return of this show are actually big. If the renewal happens (crossed fingers), it may come by the end of this year.
Demon Lord Retry Season 2 Plot
Main Plot of the Series
The main character of the series, Oono Akira, is an ordinary person working for an online gaming company and often plays the character of the Dark Lord.
Later on, when he opens the game one day, he enters the game’s fantasy world as the Dark Lord. He meets an injured girl there, and they start their journey together, whether it be trouble or not.
The opening theme song used for the first season was “Tempest” by Kaori Ishihara, while the ending theme song was “New” by Haruka Toujou.
Could you guess what will be used for Demon Lord Retry Season 2?
What to expect in Season 2
When the first season ended, it only left one question on the mind of the fans. Is it over?
The last episode was a cliffhanger, and it felt unfinished. The lack of war and enemies in the previous episodes makes the fans think that an excellent preparation was left for the second season.
But then again, we have yet to wait for the official announcements.
Is there enough material for Season 2?
Definitely! There is enough material to adapt for another season.
Epilka, the creator of the anime adaptation, picks up its plot from the Demon Lord Retry light novel series.
The web novel version of the anime series ended with only a third volume. Whereas, Futabasha’s reprinted version is still in the run and has been serialized for five books as of February 2020.
The anime adaptation covers the plot of the first two reprinted light novels. That is why with a simple proportionality calculation, there is enough source material for at least two seasons.

Why is Demon Lord Retry Season 2 Not Out Yet?
Although there is a strong possibility of the renewal, the showrunners also face issues. Some of these issues might cause the delay of the series.
According to sources, the biggest issue holding the anime series back from further sequels is the reviews of fans. Many netizens have criticized and commented that the anime series is a “cheap knockoff” of the Overlord anime. Do you think so too?
