Warriors will be sent! (also known as Sentouin, Hakenshimasu!) is an anime series in the action and fantasy genre that was first broadcast in the spring of 2021. This anime, which also manages to make you laugh while watching, is based on the light novel series by Natsume Akatsuki, published since 2017. was created by the famous Japanese animation studio JCSstaff, which we know from many successful anime series. The studio has proven how successful they are in this work with animes like One Punch Man and food wars† The anime was originally broadcast from April 4, 2021 to June 20, 2021 by several leading local networks such as AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS, SUN, BS-NTV. The first season, which aired 12 episodes, gained an audience all over the world thanks to the Funimation license. Now the question is whether there is a second season from the anime.
What is the storyline of the anime?
Kisaragi Corporation, which has grown from a small mafia organization to an evil giant corporation, is about to take control of the world. The company has its eyes on interstellar conquest. Combat Agent Six is tasked with exploring alien planets. They break a sacrament in the most embarrassing way on the first day of work. However, doing bad deeds is a daily routine for Kisaragi employees, so Agent Six has to work harder for promotion and pay increases. In order to gain the favor of his bosses, they find the evil characters calling themselves Demon Lord’s Army on the alien planet he came from and start working to eliminate them. Combatants Will Be Dispatched, which we’ll look at from the villains’ perspective, offers a visual feast full of fun.
Combatants Will Be Dispatched Season 2 Coming?
The anime made its first season finale June 20, 2021† Sometimes we come across new season endorsements in the series finale, but alas, Fighters will be sent out was not among these animes. From December 11, 2021at the time of writing, JCStaff or light novel publisher Kodakawa hasn’t updated the anime yet for a second season† Since the first season has just aired, we’ll have to wait for an announcement of a new season. Anime approvals for the new season are usually judged on a number of key factors. These are source material availability, popularity, disc sales, and financial data. We’ve been speculating about a new season of the anime among these key factors.
Light Novel status in terms of a new season
The series was originally a light novel series written by Natsume Akatsuki and illustrated by Kakao Lanthanum. The original, which began publishing on November 1, 2017, has so far been published by Kadokawa Shoten. In addition, Yen Press is bringing the original series to readers in English. The good news is that; the light novel series is still ongoing and 6 volumes have been released so far. So, how many of these volumes have been adapted into the anime? The answer is only 2 parts. Episode 12 of the first season of the anime coincides with the end of the 2nd part of the light novel. The remaining number of parts is 4 for now and seems sufficient for a new season.
Popularity and the other factors
The disc sales for the anime, which took place in the summer of 2021, were unsuccessful. However, disc sales have fallen due to changes in video viewing behavior in recent years, and it would not be correct to evaluate this based on disc sales alone. If we look at the popularity of the anime in Google searches, we see that there is a big drop compared to the first time it aired. Current worldwide popularity seems quite low for the prospect of a new season. Only 26k people on Twitter follow the anime, and the popularity in Japan is not promising for another season. In general, we know that animes that managed to get approvals for the new season have more search volume on Google and more than 100,000 followers on Twitter.

When is the second season of the anime?
The series has not yet been confirmed for a second season† It is difficult to predict whether there will be a new season in the current situation, but if we look at Google searches, we see that the current popularity is not strong nor does it rank well on the sales lists. Thanks to the light novel, there is enough source material available, and yet a new season can be approved. All you need to do now is recommend anime to your loved ones to increase its popularity. If all goes well, we could see a new season somewhere nearby 2023† As soon as official updates become available, we will share them with you. Until then, we advise you to watch Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maidwhich is a similar anime.
