It was officially announced on June 19th, 2021, as part of a live-streamed special that the anime adaptation of Youjo Senki is getting a second season, but when will Youjo Senki season 2 be released, and what will the plot be about?
Here’s what we know so far about the new season and the release date.
The anime series The Saga of Tanya the Evil, known as Youjo Senki in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2016. The Youjo Senki light novel series is written by Carlo Zen and illustrated by Shinobu Shinotsuki.
Youjo Senki is an isekai military fantasy series loved by people worldwide, which follows an unnamed atheist Japanese salaryman who is reborn as Tanya Degurechaff, an orphaned girl, whose only purpose is to remain far from the battlefield, and in this way avoid the risk of being killed.
The anime television series Youjo Senki has only had one season so far along with a movie called Saga of Tanya the Evil: The Movie all directed by Yutaka Uemura and animated by Studio NUT. Studio NUT will be working on the next season as well.
The first 12-episode Youjo Senki television anime series premiered in Japan in January 2017. Since then, it has amassed a decent fan base that is growing with each new anime project.
Youjo Senki Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, NUT has yet to announce when Youjo Senki season 2 will be released. We need to wait for more information about the second season. But, when the second season gets a release date on the Youjo Senki official Twitter account, we will let you know.
However, the most likely release date is either January 2022 or April 2022. Most anime series are usually released 6 to 9 months after they are announced. So we should hear something about the date in the next few months.
Let’s hope we will get to learn when Youjo Senki season 2 is coming out soon. Many anime fans want to know when season 2 of The Saga of Tanya the Evil will be released, but for now, all we can do is wait for some news or updates.
Youjo Senki Season 2 Plot
So far, the anime adaptation of Youjo Senki has covered volumes 1 to 3. The movie adapted the whole volume 4. As a result, volume 5 continues where the anime ends. So, if you can’t wait for Youjo Senki Season 2 to be out, you may start reading volume 5 now.
In Japan, there are currently 12 light novel volumes of Youjo Senki released so far. In 2021, the light novel Youjo Senki is still ongoing. That means the story isn’t over yet. Youjo Senki Season 2 will take the story forward and it’s expected to cover light novel volumes 5 to 7.
So Abyssus abyssum invocat, Nil admirari, Ut sementem feceris, ita metes, will be adapted into anime by NUT. Two more seasons after that should adapt everything that is currently available for the Youjo Senki franchise.

Youjo senki Trailer
There is currently no trailer for Youjo Senki Season 2, but we will post it here as soon as it becomes available. Here is a teaser for season 2, for now, that was released by Kadokawa.
The current situation in Japan with the pandemic means that a lot of anime series will be delayed. So let’s hope that the production of Youjo Senki Season 2 by NUT will not be affected by that too much.
