Kadokawa unveiled new promotional video for second season of the television anime of Yuka Tachibana and Yasuyuki Syuri‘s The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannō Desu) light novel series on Wednesday. The video reveals three new cast members, the October 3 premiere date for the anime, and also reveals and previews the anime’s opening theme song “Semisweet Afternoon” by Aira Yūki. The video also reveals that Aina Suzuki will perform the anime’s ending theme song “Lilac Melody.”
The new cast members include:
Ryota Ohsaka as Oscar Dunkel
Chiaki Kobayashi as Tenyū
Shinichiro Miki as Seiran
The anime will premiere on AT-X, Tokyo MX, MBS, BS11, and the Lemino streaming service on October 3. Crunchyroll will stream the anime as it airs in Japan.
The anime’s main cast and most of its main staff members are returning from the first season. Scott MacDonald replaces Tomoyasu Hosoi as art director. Katsuhiro Kawano is now credited as music producer (not to be confused with returning staff member Aira Yūki, who is still credited for “music produce”).
Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed both the novel series and its manga adaptation, and the publisher describes the story:
Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, is whisked away to a whole new world. Unfortunately for Sei, the ritual that summoned her—meant to produce a “Saint” who would banish the dark magic—brought two people over instead of one. And everyone prefers the second girl over Sei?! But this is just fine by Sei, who leaves the royal palace to set up shop making potions and cosmetics with her newfound magic. Business is booming, and this might not be such a bad life, after all…as long as her supposed Sainthood doesn’t come back to haunt her.
The first season premiered in April 2021. Funimation streamed the series as it aired, and it also streamed an English dub.
Tachibana launched the novels on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narou” website in 2016. Kadokawa published the first volume in print in February 2017, with illustrations by Yasuyuki Syuri. Fujiazuki‘s manga adaptation launched on Comic Walker as part of Kadokawa‘s “Flos Comic” website in July 2017.
