Skeleton Knight in Another World Season 2 has been already making noise; is it renewed and announced?
The Isekai train keeps moving as July welcomed its newest entrant in the form of Skelton Knight in Another World.
Gaikotsu Kishi-sama Tadaima Isekai e Odekakechuu or Skelton Knight in Another World is an Isekai-action anime based on the light novel writing of Ennki Hakari.
The story follows an unknown computer gamer who wakes up in the world of the fantasy game he has been playing to find himself transformed into the avatar he has been using in the game.
The boy transformed into Knight is shocked to learn that he has no body as he finds out his reflection has no skin but only a skeleton. In this unknown territory, he sees a group of bandits attacking two women who he saves, only to find out that she is a noblewoman called Lauren alongside her maid Rita.
In this new world, he begins using his in-game character name and introduces himself as Arc. He refuses to meet the King as a reward to protect his real appearance, but Lauren gives him a passport to travel throughout the city.
As Arc traverses through the city, he quickly learns the disparity between Humans and Elves, wherein the latter have been enslaved by people of the Kingdom.
Elf’s slavery is only the tip of the iceberg as the ugly façade of the Holy East Revlon kingdom holds many secrets. Can Arc relive the Elves from their human capturers and overcome evil while also regaining his real body is the central plot of the show.
Skelton Knight in Another World season one had mixed reception as viewers felt the show was a rip-off Overlord with gruesome slavery scenes while others consider the series has potential.
Either way, Skelton Knight in Another World season 2 is still in massive demand and if you are one of them, keep scrolling to find out more about the second season.
Skelton Knight in Another World anime is rated 7.2/10 and ranked #2917 with 197k members on MyAnimeList.
WHAT IS THE SKELETON KNIGHT IN ANOTHER WORLD SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
Skeleton Knight in Another World season 1 was released on 7th April 2022 and concluded on 23rd June 2022. The show comprises twelve episodes, each with a runtime of about 23-25 minutes.
As of writing, there is no update by the author or studio regarding renewal of Skelton Knight in Another World season 2.
Considering the show finished only recently, it is probably too soon to expect a second season, although we have seen studios announce their renewal. But in the case of Skeleton Knight in Another World, we might have to wait a bit longer.
If the studio does renew for a second season, we can expect Skeleton Knight in Another World season 2 release date to be mid-2023.
THE SKELETON KNIGHT IN ANOTHER WORLD LIGHT NOVEL CATCHUP
The light novel series is written by Enki Hakari with illustrations by KeG and has been published by Overlap under the Overlap Novels imprint since 25th June 2015.
As of May 2021, 9 volumes have been released, with the tenth scheduled for 25th March 2023.
The anime only adapted the first three volumes of the manga, thus leaving behind more than six volumes as source material for season 2.
If we look at the sales of the light novel, 2 million copies have been sold, including digital and print media.
Unfortunately, it can’t find a spot in Oricon’s Top 20 sales rankings for April 2022, i.e., the date when the anime premiered. Usually, creators expect a good financial return of more than 3 million copies, but sadly that number isn’t enough to demand a second season.
Skelton Knight in Another World light novel is rated 7.2/10 and Ranked #4962 with 3k members on MyAnimeList.
Skeleton Knight In Another World manga was published in Overlap’s Comic Gardo in February 2017 by Akira Sawano.
Though Akira is the author of the manga series, character designs are credited to KeG. Overlap collected the individual chapters into 11 volumes; the first volume was released in August 2017, and the eleventh came out on 25th July 2022.
Skeleton Knight In Another World manga is rated 7.1/10 and Ranked #6045 with 22k members on MyAnimeList.
SKELETON KNIGHT IN ANOTHER WORLD SEASON 2 PLOT + EXPECTATIONS
In the final episode of Skeleton Knight in Another World season 1,” I Shall Cut Through the World’s Evils,” Arc unintentionally reveals his face to Chiyome and is filled in on Arc’s condition.
It’s decided that after they reach Lalatoya, Ariane will guide Arc to Lord Crown. Excited about that trip, Arc also asks to see Chiyome’s hometown, and she sheepishly agrees.
Skeleton Knight in Another World season 2 will begin by adapting the fourth volume of the light novel and summary of which reads:
Finally arriving at the magical spring that might cure his curse, Arc is astonished to find it is a hot spring! Deciding to give his weary bones a rest, he and Ponta dive right in―only to encounter something entirely unexpected. Meanwhile, Princess Yuriarna challenges Prince Sekt’s underhanded bid to take control of the Kingdom. With royalty facing off against royalty, who will emerge victorious?
The upcoming season will capture Arc’s misadventures in the fantastical world as he tries to fight back against unexpected enemies and twisted conspiracies while trying to make sense of his internal dilemma.
While the overall story is filled with adventure and fantasy, fans have been critical of the unnecessary violence depicted, especially in the show’s opening.
An isekai anime is bound to have a fair bit of fan service and light violence, but fans expect the focus to be more on world-building and character development in Skeleton Knight in Another World season 2.
