Is Tokyo Ravens season 2 confirmed? Tokyo Ravens Season 2 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime series.

The question is, will there be a season 2 of Tokyo Ravens? And when is Tokyo Ravens season 2 coming out?

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Tokyo Ravens anime season 2 will happen in 2024, as well as a potential release date.

The anime series Tokyo Ravens, known as Tōkyō Reivunzu in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel.

The Tokyo Ravens light novel series is written by Kōhei Azano and illustrated by Sumihei.

Tokyo Ravens is a good action supernatural anime series with Onmyouji magic elements, so it’s no wonder that fans worldwide are asking if Tokyo Ravens will have a season 2.

The main character of this anime series is Harutora, a member of the Tsuchimikado branch family.

The story is about Harutora, who committed to the main female character, Natsume, when he was younger to become her shikigami. He decides to keep his word and fight with Natsume.

How many seasons of Tokyo Ravens are there? The anime television series Tokyo Ravens has only had one season. So there is no season 2 of Tokyo Ravens yet.

Studio Eight Bit has not produced a movie or OVA for the Tokyo Ravens series, so you can only watch the first season.

The first season of the Tokyo Ravens anime, with 24 episodes, premiered in Japan in October 2013. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still hoping that Tokyo Ravens will get a Season 2.

Over the last six years, I’ve examined hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:

Tokyo Ravens Season 2 - Key Visual

Will There Be A Season 2 Of Tokyo Ravens?

We must look at two factors to determine if Tokyo Ravens Season 2 will happen in 2024 and the likely Tokyo Ravens Season 2 release date.

The first factor is the source material, and the second is how much profit the first season made.

We will now examine both to see if Tokyo Ravens will have a season 2 or not.

Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Light Novel & Manga

For the Tokyo Ravens anime, the source material is a light novel.

How many volumes of Tokyo Ravens are there? As of October 2018, there are 16 volumes of the main Tokyo Ravens light novel series. In addition, there is a side-story series titled “Tokyo Ravens EX” which has 4 volumes.

Is the Tokyo Ravens light novel finished? The Tokyo Ravens light novel is ongoing, but the end is in sight. In the afterword of Volume 16, the author explained that he intends to settle the story in Volume 17 or 18.

Kōhei Azano (Black Blood Brothers) published the latest volume in Japan on November 20, 2018. However, the series went into a long hiatus shortly after that.

Tokyo Ravens Volume 17 release date? In March 2023, the author mentioned that he had almost finished writing Volume 17, but no release date has been set yet.

Where to start reading Tokyo Ravens after the end of the first season? The Tokyo Ravens light novel after the first season is Volume 10.

So, if you want to continue the story from where the anime ended, take a look at Tokyo Ravens light novel volume 10.

The first season adapted volumes 1 to 9. The second season would likely use another nine books, but only seven are available.

Still, seven volumes should be enough for a second season, which means there is enough content for Tokyo Ravens season 2.

I recommend checking out the Tokyo Ravens light novels, but there is no official English translation, so you need to find some fan translations.

Tokyo Ravens Profitability And Sales Figures

How well did the Tokyo Ravens Blu-Ray sell? The Tokyo Ravens Blu-Ray sold roughly 2,250 copies per disk for the first season, which is not great for 2015.

Blu-Ray sales of less than 3,000 aren’t good, especially for 2015 when disk sales were still crucial for a new season’s chances.

How well do the Tokyo Ravens light novels sell? Tokyo Ravens Volume 15 sold around 24,000 copies, whereas Volume 16 sold just over 20,000 copies.

Light novel sales aren’t that bad. But for a series with an anime adaptation, it should be a little bit higher, closer to 40-50k.

How many copies does Tokyo Ravens have in print? As of 2022, the Tokyo Ravens series had less than 1,000,000 copies in print.

I can’t find the official number, so it’s just my best guess looking at the sales.

How much merchandise is there for Tokyo Ravens? There are no figurines, which is not good. There are also fewer than 50 pieces of merchandise made for this series.

It’s unusual to come across a series with no figurines.

Most anime series have at least a few, even if they’re not particularly popular. Even the merchandise numbers are poor.

I think it’s clear now that this series made almost no profit. So money is a big problem for Tokyo Ravens s2.

I highly recommend checking out Tokyo Ravens wall scrolls if you’re a fan of the Tokyo Ravens series. There are some fantastic ones made for this series.

Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Release Date

Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Release Date

As of February 2024, Tokyo Ravens Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet, and the second season of Tokyo Ravens is likely never coming out.

That means there will never be a release date for Tokyo Ravens s2, and the reasons why are simple.

In the case of Tokyo Ravens, it’s because of the source material and the profit. The second season of Tokyo Ravens didn’t get a release date mainly because the first season didn’t make much money.

A new season of anime will only get green-lit if the prior season was profitable, and as we saw with Tokyo Ravens above, it was not.

Profit is often the main reason many anime series never get a new season since profit is the most important thing.

There’s also not a lot of source material remaining. After the first season, there is enough material for only a one-cour season left.

The release speed of the light novels was slow even before the author went on hiatus.

On average, there was only one new volume per year. A normal two-cour anime adaptation will use around 6.

So even if Kadokawa were to do a second season, we’d have to wait another five years for Tokyo Ravens Season 3, which isn’t worth it.

So it’s easy to see why this series never got a second season.

For the production committee, it’s simply not worth it.

Last Thoughts

In summary, there will likely never be a Tokyo Ravens Season 2, so you should not expect a release date for the second season. The best hope is that the light novel will get an ending and an English translation.
