While the date has not been specified, we know from their Twitter account that the series will hit screens in the spring of 2022.

How many seasons will there be?
The series is an adaptation of a novel written by Miya Kazuki, as mentioned earlier. The novel series was originally published between September 2013 – March 2017. It later appeared as a light novel in January 2015. The light novel, which consists of 27 parts so far, will continue a few more parts and reach the final in 2022.
The anime covers 7 parts of Light Novel, which he uses as the main source material. The first season can be considered 1-3 and the second season 4-7. With a simple account, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the series will be on the screens for at least 5-6 more seasons, as the series has no problem with the approval of the new season. However, the same raw materials may not be used for every season.
And, of course, in this process, the series should not lose its popularity. Anime is ranked 934th according to the Myanimelist popularity ranking. On Google, on the other hand, the search volume is not very strong. on Twitter, it is followed by 40k people. In general, if an anime has more than 100,000 followers, it is considered popular enough for approvals for the new season. Given its current popularity, the anime’s followers seem to be in luck as it gets confirmation. The anime should reach more people with its second season airing in 2022. Otherwise, the approval of the third season could be financially risky. But it’s nice that the anime has this potential, reviews show it both on Myanimelist and on IMDb†
