In 2020, By the Grace of the Gods was first shown as an anime series. The adventure and fantasy anime is based on the same-named series of novels and light novels by Roy. The Japanese animation studio Maho Film made the anime, which was led by Takeyuki Yanase. This studio is pretty new to the anime industry, but they were able to get approval for the second season of the “I’m Standing on a Million Lives” anime based on the manga. By the Grace of the Gods was first shown on Tokyo MX and BS Fuji on October 4, 2020. Its first season had 12 episodes and ended on December 20, 2020. People are also wondering if the anime, which is licensed by the well-known anime platform Funimation, will now have a second season.
What is the Storyline of By the Grace of the Gods?
Ryouma Takebayashi, who was 39 years old and lived alone and was unhappy, died in his sleep after he sneezed and hit his head on the ground. He meets three gods in the other world. The gods feel sorry for him and decide to reward him for always being kind and good. His reward is to come back as an eight-year-old boy in a magical fantasy world.
Ryouma’s only goal in this world is to be himself and be happy. The gods give Ryouma a power that makes him stronger and gives him control over the elements. They also promise to watch over and protect him at all times. Ryouma can now control all of the elements because the gods gave him this power. When he teleports to a forest, he starts his new life as a little boy for real.
Three years later, Ryouma, who spends most of his time studying slime, finds new kinds of slime, makes an army of slime and gets better at using magic. Even though he is happy living alone in his comfortable cave, he longs for the company of people. Ryouma is convinced to join a group of travelers after he helps one of them who was hurt. He leaves his slimes behind in the forest. He will go to a whole new world, where his magical skills and ability to catch slime will amaze and impress people.
Renewal Status of By the Grace of the Gods Season 2
From the official website of By the Grace of the Gods, we know that the anime will return for a second season on June 4, 2021. The new season of the anime will take place exactly three years after the first season ended and Ryoma and Eliaria said they would meet again. Funimation also posted this good news on its blog and said that the new season will be available to stream.
Since 2017, the light novel written by Roy and drawn by Ririnra has been on sale. The light novel had a total of 11 volumes, the last of which came out on December 18, 2021. The first three volumes of the By the Grace of the Gods light novel series were used to make the By the Grace of the Gods anime. If things go well, we may also get a third season based on the remaining stock material. But there are no plans yet to make more seasons. Still, I’m sure there will be a second season, which is good news.
Release Date of By the Grace of the Gods Season 2
Although the second season of By the Grace of the Gods has been confirmed, the creators have not yet disclosed a specific release date as of July 18, 2022. The anime’s second season was revealed around a year ago. Animes can take years to renew, although the average production time is 1-1.5 years. The lack of a release date may imply that we will not be able to watch the second season in the near future. Furthermore, Maho Film, which animated the first season of the anime, has not yet revealed plans for the second season.
- Physical Season 3 Release Date: What We Expect From This Season?
- Resident Alien Season 3 Release Date: Where is Resident Alien Filmed?
- Alchemy of Souls Season 2 Episode 6 Release Date: Who Are the Cast Members in This Season?
We anticipate that the broadcast period will be announced soon. Given the length of the development, we anticipate that the new season of the anime will premiere in early 2023. But for the time being, this is simply conjectured. As soon as the official release date is revealed, we’ll post it here. Keep an eye out. In the meantime, we recommend watching Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, which is in a similar genre.
Expected Cast of By the Grace of the Gods Season 2
“By the Grace of the Gods” chief animation director, Kaho Deguchi made a special piece of art of the main character Ryoma to celebrate the making of Season 2.
The first part of the series is about Ryoma, a Japanese salaryman who dies and comes back to life as an 8-year-old boy who can tame hundreds of slime creatures. Even though his old life as an adult was boring and he died when he sneezed so hard that he hit his head and bled to death, Ryoma’s new life is much more exciting.
Ryoma may see his best friend Eliaria Jamil and the rest of the Jamil family again in the second season of “By the Grace of the Gods.” Eliaria and her family are some of the nicest and most skilled people the young adventurer meets.
The official anime website said that Eliaria goes to the royal capital to work on her magic more. Ryoma says he will come back to see her in three years. Season 2 could bring back some old characters and also introduce some new ones that have only been seen in the light novels so far.
Popularity of By the Grace of the Gods Season 2
One of the most popular anime of 2020 was By the Grace of the Gods. But it doesn’t have a lot of fans around the world or in Japan. We sometimes see shows that aren’t very popular get picked for the next season. But because of how popular the show is right now, later seasons may not happen. At the moment, only about 20,000 people follow the official Twitter account for the series.
Animes that have been approved for a second season usually have at least 100,000 fans. When we look at the number of searches on Google and the data from Myanimelist, we can see that anime is not very popular around the world. The second season of the anime will be a good chance to make it even more popular.
