Reincarnated as a Sword season 2, will it happen?
If you have watched isekai anime for any period of time, it must be fairly apparent that reincarnation is the essence of any isekai anime. The summoning or transportation of the main character in another world is literally what most of the stories in this genre are built around.
We have seen an incarnation of characters in numerous forms, such as Heroes, Assassins, Healers, and even a Slime. While one may think that all reincarnations are already covered by this point, there was someone-somewhere a mangaka who thought of the idea of reincarnating the protagonist into a sword.
The mangaka in question is Yuu Tanaka, writer of the light novel series Reincarnated as a Sword which got an anime adaption from C2C studios.
Reincarnated as a Sword is an isekai anime that follows an unnamed protagonist who dies in a car crash and gets reincarnated as a sword into another world with no recollection of his identity.
He accepts his predicament, and after a bit of experimentation with his new form, he discovers that he can move via telekinesis. He also learns that destroying the crystals inside of monsters helps to raise his level and makes him more powerful.
Eventually, he meets up with a little slave girl named Fran, who is a stone-faced and borderline sociopathic 12-year-old cat girl.
Her behavior makes sense as she was a slave, as empathy and care for fellow living creatures is a learned skill that is hard to develop for anyone who enslaves you and treats you like dirt.
The sword accepts Fran as his wielder, and a teacher-student relationship begins developing. In fact, she names the sword teacher or shisho while it promises to help her gain freedom and protect her from all monsters.
In some cases, she, as well as Fran, has a lot of anger from being an enslaved person for the last several years and has no patience when dealing with annoyances, even if those annoyances are other adventurers.
