But what can we expect from Season 2, and when is Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 coming out? Let’s break it down.

So far, there is only one season of Saga of Tanya the Evil anime, directed by Yutaka Uemura and animated by studio Nut that premiered in Japan in January 2017 with 12 episodes.

A movie titled Saga of Tanya the Evil: The Movie followed the first season of the Youjo Senki anime in February 2019.

Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 Light Novel & Manga

The Saga of Tanya the Evil anime series, known as Youjo Senki in Japan, is based on a successful light novel.

The Saga of Tanya the Evil light novel is written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki.

How Many Volumes Of Saga of Tanya the Evil Are There?

The first novel was published by Kadokawa Future Publishing on October 31, 2013, under their Enterbrain imprint. As of March 2023, 12 volumes have been published.

A manga adaptation of Saga of Tanya the Evil with art by Chika Tōjō began serialization in Kadokawa Shoten’s Comp Ace magazine from April 2016. The manga has 27 volumes so far.

Is Saga of Tanya The Evil Light Novel Finished?

The Saga of Tanya the Evil light novel will end around Volume 14-15. While it’s not officially confirmed, many fans believe the story is close to ending, and only a few more volumes are left.

Carlo Zen published Saga of Tanya the Evil volume 12 in Japan on February 20, 2020. There is no news about Volume 13 so far.

Which Volumes Will Season 2 Cover?

Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 will start with light novel volume 5 and end likely on volume 7. The first season of Saga of Tanya the Evil anime adapted volumes 1 to 3. The movie adapted volume 4.

So, if you want to start reading the light novel from where the anime ended and continue the Saga of Tanya the Evil story, have a look at Saga of Tanya the Evil Light Novel Volume 5 in English.

Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 should have 12 episodes. It would surprise me if they adapted more than three volumes.

If they continue to use three books per season, it will take 2 to 3 more seasons to finish the anime. So, after the second season, there will still be enough material to make Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 3.

I highly recommend checking out the Saga of Tanya the Evil Light Novels. Or try the manga since both are different, and people recommend reading both.

Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 Release Date

Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 Release Date

As of March 2023, Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 doesn’t have a release date, even if it is confirmed. However, the release date for the second season of Saga of Tanya the Evil is likely to be in late 2023.

The second season is not coming out anytime soon, likely in the second half of 2023 or even early 2024.

If The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 release date was anytime soon, we should already have a full trailer. Trailers are released 3 to 6 months before a new season of anime premiers.

Also, Youjo Senki season 2 Episode 1 release date should have been in 2022, but I believe it’s coming out so late because the studio is juggling multiple series.

The studio behind this series, studio NUT, is working on 3 differend series for 2023. That’ws why even early 2024 is in the cards.

In the next few months, we should find out more about the release date of the second season of Saga of Tanya the Evil. I’ll update this post if there is new information on the official Twitter account.

Hopefully, this article was helpful. Check out the release dates for sequels like Mushoku Tensei Season 2Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2, and even One Punch Man Season 3.

Last Thoughts

In summary, the story of Tanya will continue with season 2, and the second season should come out in late 2023/Early 2024. We should learn more about when it’s coming out in the next few months.
