Magia Record Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

The first original ‘Puella Magi Madoka Magica’ anime series was released almost a decade ago. ‘Magia Record: Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden’, which serves as a side story to the original series, premiered on January 5, 2020 and with a total of 12 episodes, it finished airing on March 29, 2020. Now unlike the main series, this one was not received so well by fans but it still managed to get an average rating on most popular anime forums. The good news for the fans of the show is that its second season has already been green-lit. Although its official date has not been announced yet, going by its previous release schedule, we can expect ‘Magia Record’ Season 2 to release sometime in January 2021. 

Confirming this news, the official Twitter account of the anime also posted a small clip along with the announcement of its sequel. Check it out below:

Even the finale of the season ends with a message that says “2nd season coming soon.” Check it out below:

Shaft Studio (‘Monogatari‘, ‘Nisekoi‘) will probably animate the second season as well and Gekidan Inu Curry (Chief) and Yukihiro Miyamoto (Assistant) will be helming the show again.

A rumor is going around that if a girl manages to strike a deal with a white fairy, almost all of her wishes will be granted. However, in return, she’ll have to become a magical girl and battle evil witches. Iroha Tamaki, who was once just an ordinary schoolgirl, is one of these magical girls now and spends all of her time seeking labyrinths where these witches hide. But Iroha seems to have no memories of making a wish to the white fairy Kyuubey and that’s why she decides to visit Kamihama City. Turns out that the city is far more dangerous than she had imagined but this just compels her even further to unravel all the mysteries that surround it.
