Arifureta Season 2: Plot
The plot details of Arifureta Season 2 are still not available. However, an effort has been made to speculate the plot of Arifureta Season 2 based on the ending of Arifureta Season 1. Before knowing how Arifureta Season 2 will unfold, it is important to revise the plot of the first season of the series.
Arifureta Season 1 revolves around Hajime Nagumo who is tormented for his friendship with Kaori Shirasaki. The pupils were forced to participate in a dungeon raid during a visit to fantasy land.
Turns of events in the fantasy land take place in a way that the personality of Hajime changes and the character is left with alchemical weapons and other powers and he further develops white hard, one red eye, and his other eyes are covered with a jewel eyepatch.
The newfound power of Hajime makes him earn the title of “The Punisher of Isekai”. The title is given to him for his power to bring death to anyone who is found standing in his way. He is then helped by Yue, a vampire; Shia, beast kin; Tio, a dragon, and Myu And Kaori who are mermaids.
At the end of Arifureta Season 1, Hajime was seen defeating the demon to rescue his friends, and further, Kaori confessed her love for him. According to sources, Arifureta Season 2 might see a flourishing relationship between Hajime and Yue.
What will make the plot interesting is the fact that Yue wants Hajime to pursue other females too along with her while Hajime only has eyes for Yue. The first seasons of the series had the theme revolving around isekai fantasy and the theme for Arifureta Season 2 will be on harem and therefore, one might get to see many new female characters in the second season.
