The devil is a part-timer is a comedy and fantasy anime series that first aired in the spring of 2013. This genre, which we have seen on series like black butler and Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, occupies an important place in Japanese anime culture. Based on the light novel series written by Satoshi Wagahara since 2011, the anime was created by white fox† We also know the studio for record-breaking animes like Re: Zero and Arifureta† Licensed by Funimation, the anime was broadcast weekly on many local channels such as Tokyo MX, KBS, SUN, BS Nittele, TVA, AT-X from April 4, 2013 to June 27, 2013. The anime, which consists of 13 episodes in total, has no second season in 8 years, but fans never gave up hope. Many fans of light novels and anime around the world are still waiting for a second season† So has the anime been renewed for a new season? Let’s remember the series and look at everything that is known about the new season.
What was the storyline of the anime?
The story begins in another world, a country called Ente Isla. In Ente Isla, demon king Satan wants to gather all the evil races under his command and take over this land. A hero emerges when he is very close to victory by launching attacks led by his generals in the four regions where the people are located. Under the leadership of this hero Emilia, the people unite again and defeat the raids of the demon king Satan. People from all regions come together to make a final attack and attack Satan’s stronghold. Towards the end of the war, Satan, who collided with Emilia, realizes that the people have overwhelming superiority over his army. Declares that he will return and escapes with Alcatel, his most loyal general, by opening a portal. The place where the portal opens is the current Tokyo (in 2013 of course). Realizing that the power of magic is not valid in our world, Satan tries to acclimate to everyday life by changing his name to Maou Sadao, and our story begins.
Will there be a second season of The Devil Is a Part-Timer?
The first season of the anime aired in 2013. The intervening eight years did not prevent the decision for a second seasonand yes, the anime was renewed for a second season on March 6, 2021. We’ve seen many animes get a new season approval despite the long time, as was the case for The Devil Is a Part-Timer. The situation for animes is different than for TV dramas, and you can watch the new season of an anime that you watched as an adult as a kid. This good news was made with the announcement video that you can watch at the end of our article. Funimation posted the renewal news on its official website. In addition, the news was shared with the followers on the official Twitter account of the anime series.
As we mentioned at the beginning of our article, the light novel, which is the original of the series, is written by Satoshi Wagahara and illustrated by 029 (Oniku). Published by ASCII Media Works, the series is published from February 10, 2011 to August 7, 2020. The series is unfortunately canceled and has been concluded. For the light novel, 27 parts have been released so far and only the first 2 parts have been adapted into anime. It means that if all goes well and the audience shows an interest in the second season, there will be enough source material to see more new seasons.
The popularity of the anime
The anime had managed to stay above its targets, averaging 11,509 disc sales in its first season. We hope he will show the same success in the second season. According to Myanimelist, it is ranked as the 68th most popular anime of all time. Old animes always have an edge in this ranking, but still a perfect spot. Looking at the search popularity on Google, we see that the series has an above-average search volume, and currently about 67,000 people follow the anime’s account on Twitter.
