If you are a fan of Wise man’s grandchild season 2, then you must be wondering that when will the second season start? Or whether there will be a season 2 or not? As we all know, Kenja No Mago is known as one of the most famous isekai series.
As soon as it was released, it became really popular. The information we have till now is that is no sequel in planning and no announcement of it is being made. So the question still remains: if we will ever get to watch the Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2?
A simple answer to this question is that the Season left us with so many doubts that need to be answered and the fans would like to know what happens next. If there is no second season happening then we will never get to see how the relationship of Shin’s and Sicily progresses further into the story?
The only way to know all the answers to the questions left by season 1 is to get to watch a sequel. The source material can be of some help, but you will be sad to know that there is no English translation available so the only thing left for us to do is that we can wait for an announcement of season 2 or any news of its making.
The problem is we have to tell you that Kenja No Mago Season 2 is not officially announced, due to which one cannot even tell them that how many chances are there for an announcement.
How is it possible to figure out if there is going to be a Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2?
There are various ways of figuring out whether there will be a sequel or not. After analyzing a lot of amines we have found some best ways to check about sequels.
The best way is to have a look at the source material, popularity and the sales. From that it is possible for you to tell that if there is no announcement then there will be one soon because there is absolutely no reason that it will not be happening.
By using various methods, we looked at the possibilities of what happening of Season 2. If you are interested in knowing more about it then keep on reading this piece of writing.
We are going to give you all the information that we have found in 3 steps and this will help you in knowing whether you should expect that Kenja No Mago Season 2 is happening or not or will there be an announcement in 2020 or not.
Let us start with a detailed analysis of the source material.
Part 1: The Source Material Information
You should know that source material is really relevant when it comes to inquiring about sequels of a series like Kenja No Mago. In the case of Wise Man’s Grandchild, we need to know about its adaptation as this one is adapted from the light novel even it is a known fact that manga is most popular
There are few main things that we need to confirm. Such as the first one would be, whether the story is still in continuity or not and how many volumes are available. In case the source material story is really close to the ending or its already finished then there are bright chances that a sequel is unlikely, same as the case of Air Gear Season 2.
Right after that, you are supposed to check how many light novels were used in the making of season 1 of Kenja No Mago and how many are still available for the potential continuation of the season 2. In case there is none available then, it can literally take years to get yourself a continuation like what happens when there will be no reason 2 for the series. The consequences tell you the reasons as in what answers will not be given and how it’s not good for the audience.
After that, we need to check how many light novels got used for the Kenja no Mago season 1 and how many are available for potential continuation. If there is nothing available, it can take years to get a continuation like what happened with the No Game No Life Season 2.
How many volumes are available of Wise Man’s Grandchild?
If we talk about the current available volumes then there are 12 light novel volumes available of Wise Man’s Grandchild that are being released in Japan. There is another manga series which is based on the light novels.
There are actually 13 books available of the manga series that are published, and if we talk about the last one was published this year February 4, 2020.
Is it still on going?
The novels are still in continuation, time we talk about the latest volume then its author Tsuyoshi Yoshioka (Kenja No Mago) was released in the last year in Japan on October 30, 2019.
The author wrote like only two books in the years 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2020, there is only one volume of it released.
What are the light novels covered by the anime?
When it was aired in the year 2019, the adapted volumes were 1-3. This means that the light novel volume 4 continues even after the anime. This provides us with the nine books that can get used for the purpose of making the Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2.
CONCLUSION FOR SOURCE MATERIAL:
As there is more than enough source material to analyse, the fact that there is a lot of uncovered content in light novels is enough for making 2 seasons more. This means that source material is not going to be a problem for Wise Man’s Grandchild season 2 making.
Part 2: Sales & Profit Information
If we talk about its average price in terms of one anime series such as Kenja No Mago then it goes around 3 million dollars. It might not look a lot, but most of the series struggle to get the money back.
It is also very typical that a sequel tends to make less money as compared to the first season as in the case of Narogami and this is the reason why we didn’t get to watch the Season 3 of it. So the profits and sales play an important part in determining whether there will be a sequel or not.
As the anime got released on three disks within Japan, if we talk about its average sales then like 900 copies per volume were sold. Any amine that is not able to sell around 1,000 copies then it is said to have a difficult time for a continuation.
Blu-ray sales do not matter a lot these days, these times it is all about all the streaming revenue. But we feel like it doesn’t apply to our concerned anime. Unless you are something big as in One Punch Man Season 3 that would make a profit even from streaming, all you need is some decent BD sales.
Wise Man’s Grandchild Light Novel sales
We have looked into the sales of the previous volume 11, and it was sold around 16,000 copies. The latest one sold around 15,000 copies whereas this series didn’t rank in any recent sales report.
Selling less than 20,000 is not a good thing for a series, in terms of anime adaptation such as the Wise Man’s Grandchild. For instance for a possible sequel, there is a need to sell around 40-50k copies per volume.
Even the older series such as Accel World is selling around 50k+ per volume but still till today there is no Season 2 to it.
We can only assume that people admire Wise Man’s Grandchild manga a lot more because of the fact that it has a stronger seller base as compared to light novels. As far as the manga sales are concerned, they are fine but it would be a lot better in case the light novels were sold in the same quantity.
The sales are to somewhat are the same as the Goblin Slayer Manga, so it will be really interesting to witness the season 2 of Goblin Slayer.
Wise Man’s Grandchild Merchandise sales
The three figures that are available for Wise Man’s Grandchild, and all of them are Sicily. Apart from that there are also 140 goods for Wise Man’s Grandchild. Wise Man’s Grandchild season 1 got a great amount of profit for its first series.
Although the figures are really small, and we are not even sure that this will increase at a point or not. We did check this in the year of 2020, that the numbers are almost the same which also means that there is nothing new.
Wise Man’s Grandchild Mobile Game
If you already didn’t know then we should inform you that Kenja No Mago is now getting a mobile game this year. We found out during our research that it is happening. As far as we know to be still not out yet but it will. Till then we have to wait for whenever it releases.
Mobile games are a source of income which means they are capable of paying alone for a sequel if it goes well with the people. As in the case of Overlord Season 4, or the Season 3 of Konosuba; You can easily find a website for it but that is only available in Japanese.
These are just some main methods of finding out regarding some anime and their adaptations. As here are a few examples for Wise Man’s Grandchild – Soundtrack (OST), ending/openings songs sales, web radio, international license for Funimation, streaming on Crunchyroll, Hulu, collaborations.
Well, as we are still in the same year we should not lose any hope.
Will There Be Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2
Manga sales is the only thing that can give us hope for a sequel. The decent amount of the merchandise and an announcement of the mobile games.
The sales of merchandise and manga are not impressive enough, but they are not that kind of bad. In case the mobile game does any well, we can see that Kadokawa is planning to do another season for Kenja no Mago.
We would usually consider Wise Man’s Grandchild anime to be just an advertisement for the source material. Such types of season 2 never get a season of their own but also they don’t yet have game series like that.
Part 3: Popularity Information
We would like to tell you that normally there is no point in creating another whole season of an anime if it is not enough to keep up with the audience. It is not supposed to be short. That’s exactly what went wrong in the case of theTokyo Ravens and that is why there is no season 2 of it till today.
The second season of Kenja no Mago is only possible in case it maintains a fan base as in create new fans or there is already a big fan base to support the series. As soon as there is an announcement 8t is supposed to create fans.
In this section we are going to give a look at the current activity and popularity of the franchise.
This also means that looking at the Google trends, Social media, printed copies, nee Merch and official website allows us to determine about the anime series and its future. This would allow us to know whether there are any ongoing plans of Keja No Mago or not by the franchise.
Wise Man’s Grandchild’s official website was researched by us for the purpose of this article. We came to know that it was last updated in December with news about a rebroadcast decision.
As far as the official twitter account for this franchise is concerned, that has around 14,300 followers, did tweet last time in April about a new mobile game for the series.
It looks like Kenja no Mago or Wise Man’s Grandchild episode 1 made 8t somewhere near to Konosuba season one popularity. Whereas The Bad news is that the popularity initiated to fall from episode 2 to half of the popularity before it ends. Now it is at pre anime level.
Light Novels and Manga
If we talk in terms of manga and light novels, the series recently has 5,100,000 copies in printed form as of 2020/06. The series also added around 300k copies since the last time we researched in 2019.
There is nothing new about the series in this year, no announcements till now. There are no new figures or merchandise in the productions from what we could find online.
Will Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 Be Released
The possibility of Wise Man’s Grandchild season 2 (Kenja no Mago) depends on the profitability as well as the sales of its source material, Blu-ray copies, merchandise, and mobile games. The manga and merchandise sales don’t have anything impressive, but they aren’t bad either.
If the mobile game of the series does as expected, the anime series of Wise Man’s Grandchild may get another season. It is thought that Wise Man’s Grandchild anime is an advertisement for the source material, so this type of anime never gets the second season, and they don’t have games for these series like that.
However, Wise Man’s Grandchild got mobile games, so it makes sense to do a sequel for it to promote the games as well. This article will be updated again next year, and let’s see if something might be changed. Meanwhile, you can check the anime-continue category if you are curious about the chances of some other series are having a sequel.
