So far, Tokyo Ravens Season 2 has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime, but the question is, will there be a Tokyo Ravens Season 2 and a release date for it?
Here’s what we know so far about whether or not there will be a new season and when it will be released.
The anime series Tokyo Ravens, known as Tōkyō Reivunzu in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2006. The Tokyo Ravens light novel series is written by Kōhei Azano and illustrated by Sumihei.
Tokyo Ravens is an action supernatural series with bits of Onmyoudou magic elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Harutora, the main protagonist and the son of the branch family of the Tsuchimikado clan and Harutora’s childhood friend Natsume.
The anime television series Tokyo Ravens has only had one season so far directed by Takaomi Kanasaki and animated by Studio Eight Bit. There is no confirmation if the studio or director would be returning for a sequel.
The first 24-episode Tokyo Ravens television anime series premiered in Japan in March 2014. Since then, it has amassed a large fan base that is growing with each new anime project and still waiting for a continuation.
Will there be Tokyo Ravens Season 2?
Unfortunately, Tokyo Ravens Season 2 will almost certainly never happen. It’s been more than eight years since the first season aired, and if there were any plans to continue this anime with a sequel, it would have been announced a long time ago.
The failure of the anime adaptation to produce money is the fundamental reason why there will never be a second season of Tokyo Ravens. The first season only sold 2,250 blu-ray copies, which is a low number for 2014. Similarly, light novels used to sell roughly 20,000 copies per volume. Furthermore, there are no figures available for this series, and only about 40 pieces of merchandise.
Another reason is problems with the source material. The last light novel volume was released in 2014, so this series is on a 7-year hiatus. There is also not enough material for a second season since the anime used 9 volumes and there are 16 total.
Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Release Date
There is no official release date for Tokyo Ravens Season 2 because a second season was never confirmed or announced, and there is a low chance that a release date for Tokyo Ravens season 2 will ever happen.
The reasons why season 2 of Tokyo Ravens will never be released are explained above. Also, Google Trends shows that there is no longer any interest in this series after such a lengthy hiatus, thus there is no need for Kadokawa to announce a release date for Tokyo Ravens Season 2.
We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for Tokyo Ravens announced in the future on the Tokyo Ravens official Twitter account. If you’ve given up hope that a new Tokyo Ravens season will ever be released, you can start reading the light novel from volume 10 since the anime covered volumes 1 to 9.
