The manga version of “Wise Man’s Grandchild,” called “Kenja No Mago” in Japan, was written by Yoshioka and drawn by Shunsuke Ogata. The manga was published in March 2016 on the Young Ace Up website by Kadokawa Shoten. The manga was then turned into an anime TV show by Silver Link. The show’s first episode aired on April 10, 2019. Fans love the anime a lot, and so far, people have been positive about it. Fans of “Wise Man’s Grandchild” want to know if there will be a second season. Here is everything we know about the anime TV show being renewed.
The Storyline of Wise Man’s Grandchild
The story is about a Japanese office worker who dies in a car crash. He gets a new life and comes back as a child in a different world. Merlin Wolford, who was a patriot hero, finds him and takes him in. He gives him the name Shin. Shin was born in a world where magic and sorcery rule. Shin eventually turns into Merlin’s grandson and learns what Merlin has to say.
The first season of the anime TV show started in April 2019 on AT-X. Soon, Tokyo MX, BS11, and other Japanese TV networks and channels picked it up. The anime is based on a series of light novels with the same name. The series was written by Tsuyoshi Yoshioka, and Funimation got the rights to show it in North America.
Release Date of Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2
The first season of the anime only had 12 episodes, and it ended on June 26, 2019. The first season got great reviews, and the ratings and scores are good enough to make you think about watching the second season. On MyAnimeList, 300,304 users gave “Wise Man’s Grandchild” a score of 6.61/10. ‘Kenja no Mago’ is based on a Japanese light novel series of the same name. There are 16 volumes of this series so far.
Even though there is more than enough material for a new season, nothing has been said about a new season.
Also, Kadokawa wants to put its efforts into making and promoting new hit series, and it plans to release at least one Isekai anime every season. Producers at Kadokawa have already started talking about seasons 2 of “The Rising of the Shield Hero” and “Re: Zero.” So, if they can get a new season, why can’t Kenja no Mago get a new season?
What Will Happen in Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2?
Even though we don’t know much about the second episode of the anime TV show, we do know that the magical beach volleyball scene was in the first season of the show. But manga Chapter 26 has more shenanigans with sunscreen, breast suffocations, and Grandpa fishing while drunk, which we hope will be covered in the second part.

The Cast of Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2
In the original Japanese version of the anime, actor Yuusuke Kobayashi played Shin (via Myanimelist). Shin does not go on his adventures by himself, though. He is joined by other people who go to the same magical academy as the main character. Shin’s best friend and the prince of the kingdom, August von Earlshide (Shouhei Komatsu), and Shin’s love interest, Sicily von Claude (Rina Honizumi), are both in this group. In the English dub, Daman Mills, Brandon McInnis, and Lindsay Seidel play these characters, in that order.
Shin’s strange fantasy world has a lot of other characters besides these three main ones. Shin’s magic teacher and guardian are Melinda Bowen (Gara Takashima/Cynthia Cranz), and Shin’s first magic teacher and father figure was Merlin Wolford (Yuusaku Yara/Bruce R. Elliot).
All of these characters and more might show up in Season 2 of “Wise Man’s Grandchild.” The names of any new characters and the voice actors who will play them have not been revealed yet.
