Handyman Saitou in Another World Season 2, when will it happen?
Isekai is one of the most popular genres in anime, and why not as many people dream of being reincarnated into another world while having amazing adventures.
Each year numerous isekais are released, and Winter 2023 was no different as the anime adaption of Kazutomo Ichitomo s’ manga series, Handyman Saitou in Another World hit the small screen.
The story follows a handyman named Saitou, who is not only highly underpaid for his work but also undervalued by his boss, who eventually fires him.
Dejected and anguished at his state, Saitou s’ fortune turns bad to worse as he walks in front of a speeding truck which instantly kills him.
Luckily for Saitou, he is reincarnated in another world wherein he becomes part of an adventuring party.
The group comprises a female warrior knight called Raelza, a female moonlight fairy named Lafanpan, and Morlock the mage.
Incidentally, they were looking for a recruit whose traits were similar to Saitou, and thus he became the latest member of the party.
With this ability to pick locks and repair instruments, Saitou finally gets the praise he always craved as he becomes an indispensable part of the group.
How Saitou s’ manual dexterity helps the adventurers around him while he gains their trust is the central plot of the show.

After the conclusion of season one, many fans are now wondering if there will be a second installment or not.

WHAT IS THE HANDYMAN SAITOU IN ANOTHER WORLD SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
Handyman Saitou in Another World Season one aired from 8th January 2023 to 26th March 2023 for 12 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio C2C on the renewal of Handyman Saitou in Another World Season 2.
|Handyman Saitou in Another World Season 1||8th January 2023|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
As mentioned earlier, Handyman Saitou in Another World season one was one of the better isekai of Winter 2023 however, it was not as popular when compared to series like Campfire Cooking in Another World with My Absurd Skill or Farming Life in Another World.
If we look at the IMDB user episode ratings, there is no doubt the first season makes a valid case for receiving a sequel.
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 1||8.6|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 2||8.6|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 3||8.7|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 4||8.9|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 5||8.9|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 6||8.8|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 7||8.6|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 8||8.6|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 9||8.5|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 10||8.5|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 11||8.5|
|Handyman Saitou in Another World 12||8.3|
While the reviews and ratings are overall positive, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of the studio.
Studio C2C isn’t a big production house and, consequently, is yet to produce a sequel for its past releases. Additionally, 2023 looks entirely booked for the studio, with two new projects scheduled to release in April and October.
All in All, Handyman Saitou in Another World season 2 looks unlikely to happen any time soon as the studio is focused on future projects and new adaptions.
Assuming the studio does renew for a sequel by next year, we can expect Handyman Saitou in Another World Season 2 trailer and Handyman Saitou in Another World Season 2 release date by late 2025.
