‘Somali and the Forest Spirit’ is a sweet and endearing anime that portrays a journey of two characters—an old Golem and a little human girl. This journey molds them, changes them in every possible way, just as it will give you some crucial lessons on life. Although it is still catching up with the anime community, ‘Somali and the Forest Spirit’ is easily one of the most heart-rending shows of the season. That being said, now that its season 1 has come to an end, you must be wondering if it will ever return with a second season. Here’s everything you need to know.
Somali and the Forest Spirit Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
The first season of ‘Somali and the Forest Spirit’ premiered on January 10, 2020 and with a total of 12 episodes, it finished airing on March 26, 2020. The original manga from which it has been adapted has a total of 6 volumes so far and the first season of the anime adapts close to 5 of these. This leaves the creators of the show with just one more volume for a sequel. Thus, a lack of source material is certainly an issue here. Moreover, only one or two volumes of the manga are released every year, so even by the end of 2020, the manga will have no more than 8 volumes.
As of now, no official announcement has been made by Studio Satellite, but considering the lack of source material, it seems very less likely that we’ll get to see more of ‘Somali and the Forest Spirit’ in the near future. So, for now, we can expect ‘Somali and the Forest Spirit’ Season 2 to release sometime in 2022 or later. As soon as we get any official news regarding its release, we’ll update it here in this section. Till then, you can check out other similar fantasy anime.

Amid all of this violence and persecution, a lone human girl runs into a golem who watches the forest.
With this, despite knowing how humans are expected to be treated in his world, the golem takes it upon himself to make sure that the girl is safe. Racing against time, he tries to find a human community that would be able to look after her and along the way, the two of them develop an unbreakable and pure father-daughter bond.
