Will There Be Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2? (2021)

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry season 2 will not happen unless the anime made a profit and there is enough source material for a second season left. So if there was no profit or material left, then one season is all Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry will have.

So, in this article, we will look at the source material left for the second season. And the profit that the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry anime adaptation made. That will tell us if Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry season 2 will happen and the possible release date.

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry season 2 episode 1 is something many fans have been waiting for since 2015. And after reading this short but in-depth post, it will be clear to people if there will be a Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry season 2 and the release date.

Source Material Information

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 Source Material Information

For the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry anime, the source material is a light novel. And here is all the information that we need for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2.

It will tell us if there is enough source material for a second season. It’s important because that could prevent the sequel and the release date from happening.

  • Is the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry light novel finished? – The Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry light novel is still ongoing. The author Riku Misora released the latest volume On June 11, 2020.
  • How many volumes does Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry have? – In Japan, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry has 18 light novel volumes. There is also a manga series and an anthology volume illustrated by various artists.
  • What is the release speed of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Light Novels? – In 2018 and 2019, two new volumes per year. The release speed used to be three to four light novels in 2014 and 2015, but it slowed down to just one in 2020.
  • Which light novels does the anime of Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry cover? – The first season of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry anime, by studio Silver Link, used volumes 1 to 3.
  • How many copies are in print? – As of 02/2017, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry had 1,500,000 copies in print. That puts it outside the top 100 best-selling light novels of all time.

The Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry light novels by GA Bunko are still getting published. The story has not ended yet, and volume 4 picks up where the anime left off. So there are no problems other than the slow publishing speed.

There are 15 light novels available for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2. That’s more books left to adapt for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 than for sequels like One Punch Man Season 3, but less than Air Gear Season 2. As a result, the source material will not be a problem.

SUMMARY: Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 will not have a shortage of source material. There’s enough for at least five more seasons.

Sales & Profit Information

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Sales & Profit Information

We need to check if the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry anime adaptation was profitable and how well the series is doing in sales. If the anime failed to make a good profit, there would be no second season and no release date.

We will look at Blu-Ray sales, light novel sales, and merchandise numbers.

That will tell us enough. After that, we will know if the anime made enough profit for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2.

  • Blu-Ray Sales for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Anime – Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry sold around 3,000 copies per Blu-Ray in Japan. This anime series also got a BD-Box that sold 750 copies. The Blu-Ray numbers are not the best for sequel chances.
  • Light Novel Sales for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry – Volume 17 sold around 15,000 copies in Japan, and volume 18 sold about 10,000. Selling 15,000 copies per volume is okay, but not ideal for a series with an anime adaptation.
  • Figurines Numbers for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry – There are only five figurines available for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, and all of them are for Stella Vermillion. That’s a low number because it should be at least 20 to 30.
  • Merchandise Numbers for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry – About 25 items are available. A reasonably successful anime adaptation should get at least 200-300 pieces of merchandise. So no profit from this either.
  • Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Streaming – The international rights to this series went to Sentai. Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry also streamed on HIDIVE. Hulu and few other less-known platforms. And streaming wasn’t big in 2015, so Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry didn’t make much money from that.
  • Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Manga Adaptation – I can’t find how much the manga sold because it never ranked anywhere. So even the manga didn’t make a profit for this series.

Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Blu-Ray sales aren’t great. Light novels didn’t benefit significantly from the anime adaptation, and there’s a lack of merchandise and figurines. So the anime adaptation didn’t make a profit for Kadokawa and the production committee.

I’m not going to share the rest because they usually don’t make a lot of money.

But there are also other ways the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry anime made money. The soundtrack, ending and openings songs, various collaborations, and more.

Also, if you are curious, I have collected the same information for plenty of other anime sequels. Like Accel World Season 2Kenja No Mago Season 2Overlord Season 4, and Tokyo Ravens Season 2.

SUMMARY: Sales and profit will be a big problem for Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2. Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry didn’t make a profit from the anime adaptation or even lost money.

Will There Be Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 Conclusion

Will There Be Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2

The production committee did not make a significant profit from the first season of Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry. As a result, there is a small chance that the production committee will spend more money to produce Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry Season 2 in 2021.

The first season of the Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry anime wasn’t a huge hit, and it’s been more than six years since the first season aired.

I would give the sequel close to 0% chance of happening.

Not to mention the light novels are going to end soon. From what I gathered, there are a maximum of three volumes left before this series is done.

CONCLUSION: The chances of Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry season 2 are close to 0%. So if you want to continue the story, I would say read the light novels. The English translations are currently at volume 5, so you can continue where the anime left off.

Are you interested in any other sequels?

If so, then you should look into the anime-continue category. You can find information about many sequels there. Konosuba Season 3Youjo Senki Season 2, and Goblin Slayer Season 2 are a few examples.
