Why has there been a Delay in the Release of Mushoku Tensei Season 2?
Mushoku Tensei Season 2 is inevitable given the show’s popularity and positive reception. The anime has performed considerably well and outperformed other isekai anime series.
Mushoko Tensai Season 2 has been officially announced but it is still unclear if production has begun. Nobuhiro Osawa, the producer, explained that Mushoku Tensei Season 1 was originally planned for 2020. However working with a new studio amongst pandemic restrictions made this a very difficult anime project.
The delay for Season 2 could also be attributed to the pandemic. Stricter restrictions led to a slew of obstacles which can explain why further announcements have not been made. However, the production team might just be leveraging extra time to focus on better anime quality. Despite the delay, Mushoku Season 2 will probably release sooner than later.
Mushoku Tensei Season 2 Release Date
There is no official release date for the second season. Optimistically, the end of 2022 or early 2023 could be a possible window for Mushoku Tensei Season 2’s release. For the eager fans, the production team released an OVA episode on March 16,2022.
According to anime news leaker, Sugoi Lite ,Season 2 and 3 was already in the works. However, the veracity of this claim is doubtful. An animator confirmed that there is a possibility of more seasons but production for season 3 has not started yet. If Season 2 was in the production phase in 2021, then a release in 2023 is possible.
However, if that’s not the case viewers might face considerable delay. Nevertheless, judging from the announcement, a release date could be announced very soon.
How Similar are the Anime and Novel Series?
