Do you want to know when Tokyo Ravens Season 2 will come out? We’ll tell you everything you need to know about the anime, so stop looking. We’ll also tell you about the light novel series and how the story can continue to grow in the future.

What Is “Tokyo Ravens” All About?

The first episode of the anime series Tokyo Ravens aired on October 9, 2013, and the last was on March 26, 2014. Before we discuss whether the show will get a second season, let’s review it. You can understand more about the show if you haven’t seen it yet by reading about it. You can move on to the article’s main content if you have.

Tokyo Ravens is a great supernatural action anime series that features shamans and onmyouji magic. This anime series is about Harutora Tsuchimikado, who is the main character. The story is about Harutora and Natsume, who is the main girl. Harutora did promise Natsume that she would make out for her and be her shikigami. So Harutora decides to do something about it himself and fight with her.

The Tokyo Ravens anime has only had one season so far. It started in 2013 on Tokyo MX. The first season of the show has 24 episodes. There were never any OVAs or movies made for this series.

There is enough material for this franchise to have some great OVAs, so it’s a shame that it never got even one. It would have been great if the Tokyo Ravens EX side-story series had been adapted into several OVAs.

Many fans of this anime want to know if there will be a second season and when it will come out so they can watch the first episode of Tokyo Ravens season 2.

HOW DID THE STORY OF TOKYO RAVENS GO?

When a ritual in Tokyo goes wrong, evil spirits attack the city. The Onmyoujis have to get rid of all the ghosts in the town. People who can see spirits and control their spiritual energies are called onmyoujis. After the disaster in Tokyo, schools to train Onmyoujis start to open. Tsuchimikado Harutora, our main character, is a rooted Onmyouji, but he can’t see spiritual energy. Because he can’t work, he spends his days having fun with his friends in the country, away from all this chaos.

Harutora doesn’t want to be an Onmyouji, even though his friends want him to. He has known Natsume, the heir to the prominent family, since they were kids. He promised Natsume when he was young but cannot keep the promise because he doesn’t have any spiritual ability. Natsume, on the other hand, is a talented Onmyouji. People call him a genius, and his family sends him to Tokyo to study Onmyouji.

Harutora doesn’t want to be Onmyouji or have responsibilities, but he can’t change his fate. After losing his best friend and remembering his promise to Natsume, he decides to attend a prestigious school in Tokyo. Harutora joins forces with Natsume and trains to get even with the 12 Heaven Generals in charge of Tokyo.

WILL TOKYO RAVENS HAVE THE 2ND SEASON?

At the time of this writing, on July 23, 2022, neither Eight Bit studio nor the light novel/manga publishers had renewed the Tokyo Ravens anime for a second season. Even though the time that has passed makes it less likely that there will be a second season, we can’t say there is no possibility just because of the time because we know that many animes have been renewed for a new season even after a long time.

Eight Bit, the studio that made Tokyo Ravens, still makes anime today. That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, an anime based on the light novel by Fuse, is one of the studio’s most popular shows. Its second season just came out.

Anime renewal depends on a few main things, and the decision group takes these very seriously. Since animes are made to make money, sales of discs and popularity are essential. On the other hand, the availability of light novel source material will also affect the decision for the new season. We thought about the second season of Tokyo Ravens based on these critical points.

LIGHT NOVEL:

The Tokyo Ravens light novel series by Khei Azano and Sumihei ran from May 20, 2010, to October 20, 2018, but it is no longer being updated. There are 16 books in the series, plus an extra four books. If we go through the main books, the anime’s first season was based on the first nine books. It looks like there are 7 volumes of source material left.

There might not be enough material for 24 episodes in the first season, but it is still possible to make a season with 12 episodes. But the fact that the series ended years ago makes it harder to advertise and impossible to use an anime season to sell more light novels.

POPULARITY:

The average number of discs sold for Tokyo Ravens in the fall of 2013 was 2,247. Most of the time, a new season of an anime should sell at least 4,000 copies. Especially back then, people bought more discs because this habit isn’t as strong as it used to be now that people watch popular things. Myanimelist says that anime is quite popular (#414), but our current metrics show it is not famous enough for the new season.

We can see that searches on Google about anime have gotten less popular over the past few years. The official Twitter account for the Tokyo Ravens anime has also not been used in more than a year. Currently, only 27k people watch anime, which is below average. But we can see that animes renewed for a new season usually have 100k fans. Tokyo Ravens are not likely to get a second season.

When will Tokyo Ravens Season 2 come out?

Since the first episode of Tokyo Ravens came out over nine years ago, there has been no news about a possible Season 2.

One-season animes include Cowboy Bebop, Akame Ga Kill!, The Ouran High School Host Club, among others, which are animated show that runs for one season. But shows like Bleach and Fruits Basket have made surprising comebacks, so there may still be hope for another season.

In Tokyo Ravens, the story of Harutora Tsuchimikado won over many fans and was praised by many critics. In the magical anime, the young man lives an everyday life until his old friend Natsume Tsuchimikado returns and changes everything.

Because of a promise they made as kids, Harutora becomes a familiar (a servant to the Onmyouji) to Natsume, a powerful magic user and the heir to the Tsuchimikado Clan. So, they go to Onmyyou Academy to improve their skills and prepare for a battle against evil magic users soon.

If you want to find out what happens next in the Tokyo Ravens story, you can read the light novel series, which has a few more books. The anime ends around the end of Volume 7 of the book, so you can read Volume 8 to find out what happens next. Also, Volume 5 has extra OVA content that wasn’t in the show. It is great for anyone who wants to see more of the character’s adventures.
