Worried about Kenja No Mago Season 2? want to know about its release dates and latest information? then you’ve arrived at the right place!
Wise Man’s Grandchild another story of a sad man in Japan getting killed and put into another world. Yes, the side characters are quite simple, the plot is not that special, and the MC is overpowered. Wise Man is one of the funniest shows, and running against Isekai Quartet gave it a hard compilation.
If this show didn’t have its serious plot or tried to be a serious show like a Re Zero, viewers would have criticized it. But not many people look at the small details.
Now we may wonder “Will There Be Kenja No Mago Season 2?”

Kenja No Mago is a popular Isekai series, so why is there no sequel so far, and should we expect Kenja No Mago Season 2 or not?
We will never know how Sicily and Shin’s relationship progresses more into the story if there’s no second season.
The only way to learn the answers without a sequel would be to read the light novels/ manga. Kenja No Mago Season 2 hasn’t got any official announcement yet, and we don’t know if there’s any chance for Kenja No Mago Season 2.

Without any further delay let’s dig into the details.
Will there be Kenja No Mago Season 2 or not?
1.Reference for Adaption
Wise Man’s Grandchild was adapted from the light novel, although manga is more preferable by the fans.
We need to check a few things, like if the story is still ongoing and how many volumes have been released. If the story is close to ending or the story is finished already. Then we need to check how many light novels have been used for the Kenja no Mago season 1 and how many are available to continue Kenja No Mago Season 2.
Till now, 12 light novel volumes of Wise Man’s Grandchild has been released in Japan. Wise Man’s Grandchild has a manga series that is based on light novels according to Wikipedia.
The manga series has published 13 books till now, and the last one got published on February 4, 2020.
The Wise Man’s Grandchild light novels are ongoing. The latest volume by the author Tsuyoshi Yoshioka (Kenja no Mago) was released in Japan on March 30, 2020.
The author wrote two books in 2017, 2018, and 2019. In 2020, 2 volumes have been released till now.
Wise Man’s Grandchild’s anime, which was aired in 2019, adapted volumes 1-3. This means the anime can continue from volume 4 onwards.
2. Kenja No Mago Sales & Profit
It would cost around 3 million dollars to produce another one core series like Kenjo No Mago.
It’s common that Kenja No Mago Season 2 would make less money than the first season, like in Noragami and why there is no Noragami Season 3. So, sales and profit are the determining factors to know whether there’ll be a season 2 or not.
The anime consisted of three disks in Japan, and the average sales were around 900 copies per volume. Any anime that sells under 1,000 has low chances to produce a second season. Although Blu-ray sales don’t matter much these days since there’s been streaming revenue.
Now let’s look at the sales of the previous volume 12, it sold around 15,000 copies. The latest light novel volume 13 sold approximately 13,000 copies. This series didn’t even rank in any recent yearly sales report.
Average Sales below 20,000 is unfortunate for a series with an anime adaptation like Wise Man’s Grandchild. For a possible sequel, a series should get at least close to 40-50k copies sold per volume.
Even older series like Accel World is selling 50k+ per volume, and to this day, there is no Accel World Season 2 announced yet.
The manga volume 13 of Wise Man’s Grandchild sold more than 65,000 copies in the first week, and the latest Wise Man’s Grandchild manga volume 14 sold 52,000 copies.
It can be assumed that people like Wise Man’s Grandchild manga more because it’s sales are better than the light novel. The sales are almost the same as Goblin Slayer manga, so it can also be predicted that either both will announce the second season or cancel it.
There are only three figures available for Wise Man’s Grandchild, and all of them are Sicily. There are 140 goods for Wise Man’s Grandchild. Wise Man’s Grandchild season 1 got a decent amount of merchandise for a one cour series, but we don’t know whether it’ll boost their sales or not.
There’s been an announcement regarding the launch of the Kenjo No Mago mobile game. It’s not available yet but let’s hope it does well in the future.
Mobile games can pay alone for Kenja No Mago Season 2 if they are doing well, like in Overlord Season 4 or Konosuba Season 3.
3. Fanbase and popularity
Kenja no Mago season 2 can only happen if it can create new fans or enough big fan base to support the series.
Kenja No Mago’s official website was updated in December 2020 with news about rebroadcast news. The official Twitter account has 14.8K followers (3rd jan 2020); they tweeted “From Friday, November 6th Every Friday from 19:00 to 20:00 Weekly (Monday) 11: 00-12: 00 * Repeat broadcast Weekly (Wednesday) 27: 00-8: 00 * Repeat broadcast Broadcast 2 episodes 3 times a week! Please take a look”. (Sept 30,2020)
It looks like Kenja no Mago or Wise Man’s Grandchild episode one peaked almost as Konosuba season one popularity. The Bad news is that the popularity started to drop from episode 2, and now it’s just like any other average anime, which has no chance to produce Kenja No Mago Season 2.
4. Ranking and Achievements
MAL has rated Wiseman’s Grand Child with 6.5/10 stars, and it ranked 5592, which is not satisfactory for any production committee. A popular and good animhaveas a rank around 1000-1500 to produce a second season. Even IMDB has rated it 6.8 stars.
Where to watch Kenja No Mago?
You can watch Tokyo Ravens on these online streaming sites:-
There is enough source material in light novels that can produce Kenja No Mago Season 2 in 2020. This means source material is not a problem for Wise Man’s Grandchild sequel.
The sales aren’t high, and even the manga isn’t a big hit. If the mobile game does well, it could improve the chances of Kenja No Mago Season 2, but on the other hand they ranked around 5000, which isn’t satisfactory.
There is a new mobile game for the series. New volumes of manga and light novels every few months, and social media is still active, which is a positive sign. Next year, I think it will be easier to tell how many fans there are and if the game and merch are doing well enough for the series to go on.
Manga sales can boost their profit to some extent. The manga and merchandise sales aren’t satisfactory, but they aren’t bad either. If the mobile game does well, we can hope that Kadokawa may produce another season. Like in the case of Overlord, they invested in games and earned a profit of 5 million dollars, increasing another season’s chance.
Hence finally, I’d like to conclude that there should be an official announcement for the second season by 2023. Else, we can stop expecting another season and start watching some other anime.
