Will there ever be Rokka no Yuusha Season 2? That is a question that fans ask every day. Rokka no Yuusha or Heroes of the Six Flowers is a light novel written by Ishio Yamagata and illustrated by Terui. The series was adapted into anime by Passione in Japan, aired from July 4 to September 19, 2015.
The show is a hit among anime fans because of its unique story. Rokka no Yuusha combines a mystery narrative with an action fantasy. With the first season's conclusion, fans have been demanded to see Rokka no Yuusha Season 2.
So, is it going to happen? Here is everything we know about the second season of Rokka no Yuusha.
Will there be Rokka no Yuusha Season 2?
It has the potential to become true. First, as of 2021, there are six light novel volumes, with one spin-off volume in the self. From what we know, the anime only covers the first volume of the novel. Therefore, there is plenty of content for Rokka no Yuusha Season 2.
It can follow the path of the first season, explore only one volume for the sequel. In volume 2, our main protagonists continue their journey to a place called Howling Vilelands. There, they fight with a demon commander while also trying to solve the mystery of the seventh hero. Another path that the studio can choose is to make it into a split cour so the fans could have more of Rokka no Yuusha.
Second, we need to look at the studio behind it, Passione (High School DXD). Back then, Passione was considered a fairly new anime studio, with only two anime titles that they produced besides Rokka no Yushaa. While they have yet to establish themselves as one of the popular anime studios, it now produces a few popular series, such as Higurashi and the ongoing Mieruko-chan. With those things in mind, it is probably the right time for Passione to bring back the hope of Rokka no Yuusha Season 2.
Rokka no Yuusha Season 2 Release Date
Sadly, there is no official announcement for the release date of Rokka no Yuusha Season 2. We still hope that it will happen, but unfortunately, there are some hiccups along the way.
The author, Ishio Yamagata, is known to have a slow pace regarding the release of his work. From what we have observed, Ishio took about a year to publish each volume of Rokka no Yuusha. It has been on an indefinite hiatus, too, with the latest volume published in 2015. In addition, there haven't been any updates on whether the author wants to continue the series or not.
While Rokka no Yushaa gained some popularity with international audiences, it didn't attract many tractions in Japan. Remember, Japanese viewer is still the number one priority for anime studios.
Those two problems could hinder the release of Rokka no Yuusha Season 2. We can't lose all hope, though, because there are some cases when older anime got renewed. We talk to you, The Irregular at Magic High School.
Plot of Rokka no Yuusha
The story is centered around the legend of heroes, known as the Braves of the Six Flowers. The Spirit of Fate chooses those heroes, and they will receive a mark with a crest as a symbol to identify them. This time, however, instead of six heroes, there are seven of them.
Confused by the number, the seven candidates believe there is a false hero between them. Adlet Mayer is one of the seven heroes, and he becomes the prime suspect. He then tries to prove innocent while running away from other heroes, who don't hesitate to kill Adlet.
