Black Summoner Season 2 could have six seasons, but will it be renewed?
Isekai is a massively popular anime genre that rakes in millions of views each year, and it’s no surprise that according to the Crunchyroll platform, one out of five anime releases in 2021 was an Isekai.
Since the dawn of time, the isekai genre has fascinated and captivated viewers of all ages and has only grown multifold.
It’s improbable that an average anime watcher mustn’t have come across one of these titles, which involves tropes like reincarnation, fantasy world, magic, and overpowered main character.
Like previous years, Isekai has given us many memorable series, and amidst the many isekai releases in 2022, Doufu Mayoi s’ light novel series titled Kuro no Shoukanshi or Black Summoner anime adapted by Studio Satelight is also one of them.
Black Summoner follows the story of Kelvin, who dies at God’s fault and accepts his fate to be reincarnated into a new world in exchange for skills of his choosing.
In addition to special powers and abilities, Kelvin also barters away his memories to hold the title of S-class summoner mage and is also presented as a servant in the form of Melfina, the God of Reincarnation.
Kelvin is smitten by the Goddess and now in-game menu Melfina as its love at first sight. His first fight involves slaying slime monsters, which in turn gives him another partner in the form of a slim, which he calls Clotho.
Although Kelvin is the highest-ranked Summoner, he is still level, and he seeks to hunt out more monsters to increase his level and become even more powerful.
Also, to summon God of Reincarnation Melfina in her physical form, he must collect enough mana points, which can be accomplished by defeating enemies and building stronger alliances.
Black Summoner follows the journey of Kelvin in this new world as he begins his new life slaying Knights, Evil Spirits, and monsters and discovers his true power as a battle junkie.
This summer 2022 isekai series was a hit and missed by the fans as some found it amusing while others complained about its generic overuse of isekai tropes without a substantial impact on the plot.
Either way, those who enjoyed Black Summoner are wondering will the series be renewed for a second season. Do you have the same question in mind? If so, keep scrolling to learn more about all the latest news and updates on Black Summoner season 2.
