Magical Warfare Season 2: Release Date and Characters

As the name suggests, ‘Magical Warfare’ is anime that adopts magical themes, having some similarities with shows like ‘Little Witch Academia.’ The best thing about it is that it involves a very stylistic animation style and brings in enough twists and turns to keep you entertained. If you’re wondering when its second season will release, here’s everything you need to know about its renewal status.

Magical Warfare Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Magical Warfare’ season 1 premiered on January 14, 2020, and with a total of 12 episodes, it finished airing on March 28, 2020. Since it was produced by Madhouse Studio, ‘Magical Warfare’ gained quite a lot of popularity but turned to be a very mediocre show, garnering a mixed set of reviews. In fact, even during one of his interviews, the creator of the original manga, Hisashi Suzuki, confessed that allowing an anime adaptation of his work was a big mistake.

So considering the negative response that it received after its first season, ‘Magical Warfare’ will probably never get renewed for a sequel. Moreover, since Madhouse Studio is now one of the biggest studios out there with several renowned anime like ‘One-Punch Man‘ and ‘Death Note‘ under its belt, it seems very less likely that the Studio would ever want to create a sequel of an old mediocre anime. In the unlikely scenario the anime does get renewed, we expect ‘Magical Warfare’ season 2 to only release sometime after 2023.

Magical Warfare English Dub

You can watch the first season of ‘Magical Warfare’ on Hulu, HiDive, and Crunchyroll with its original Japanese audio and English subtitles.

Magical Warfare Plot

Takeshi Nanase discovers one day that he knows very little about the world he lives in. While on his way to his kendo practice, he runs into an unconscious girl and decides to save her. As soon as she regains her consciousness, without his consent, she turns him into a magic-user. Soon Takeshi finds himself in a world full of magic users who mean no harm to the ones who don’t use magic. With his fellow magicians, he then enrolls himself into a magical academy where he and his friends learn to control their abilities and live peacefully with normal humans.

This way they try their best to further hone their abilities and later use them to bring justice and peace to their world. Magicians known as Ghost Trailers disrupt peace in their world and try to misuse their abilities to bring misfortunes in the lives of humans. So it comes down to Takeshi and his friends to get stronger and fight these Ghost Trailers to make their world a better place.
