When will the anime “Demon Lord, Retry! Season 2” be released?
At the moment, there is no information about whether work will continue on the anime “Demon Lord, Retry!” We have only a hint of the continuation of the series, which was clearly shown at the end of episode 12. Perhaps the project management will first look at the ratings and the number of views of the season 1, and then decide the issue of the second one. If fans of the Demon Lord story take the anime well, then the new episodes could theoretically be released closer to fall 2021.
15 years ago the game was created. It was the whole world for his creator Akira Ono. But once the existence of the game was supposed to end. It is at this moment that Akira finds himself in an unknown fantasy world, where the main characters come to life and he is her main character Hakuto Kunai.
Acquaintance with the little defenseless Aku helps Hakuto Kunai understand what is happening. Now he is not just the creator of his game, but the Demon Lord. Some were waiting for his coming as salvation, others as an enemy that must be destroyed.
During the conversation between Hakuto Kunai and Aku, a huge demon, Greol, suddenly appeared, who was easily destroyed by the Demon Lord. Greol’s revival was feared by all the locals, because they would again live in fear and now have to bring him a new sacrifice. The choice fell on the defenseless Aku, who the villagers did not like, insulted and stoned. But Greol’s anger and curse were truly terrible – because of him, around the village, the land turned into a desert, and the water was completely poisoned.
Aku told the Demon Lord about the Sacred Country, about the Holy Capital, the Shrine of Wishes, about the three saints who obey the Cherub… For the main character, now there is one goal – to find a way home, no matter how difficult it is. In the Shrine of Wishes, from where the journey began, Hakuto Kunai received a ring from the statue, the strength of which is still unknown. Now his path is directed to the Holy Capital. Aku is ready to go with him on a journey. Despite her young age, she can tell a lot to the Demon Lord. But the path will not be easy and safe – the hunt is announced. Three saints race to hasten to destroy the Demon Lord. But what is his fault?..
