Kadokawa recently revealed an enticing visual along with the highly anticipated October release date for the second season of the anime adaptation of Yuka Tachibana and Yasuyuki Syuri’s renowned light novel series, “The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent” (Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannō Desu).
The anime’s primary ensemble and the majority of its key creators are reprising their roles from the initial season. Scott MacDonald takes over as the art director, succeeding Tomoyasu Hosoi. Katsuhiro Kawano now assumes the position of music producer (distinct from the returning staff member Aira Yūki, who continues to be credited for “music produce”).
Seven Seas Entertainment has obtained the licensing rights for both the novel series and its manga adaptation, with the publisher providing a captivating description of the narrative.
Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, finds herself abruptly transported to an entirely unfamiliar realm. Sadly, the ancient ritual that summoned her, intended to conjure a revered “Saint” capable of dispelling dark sorcery, inexplicably brings forth two individuals instead of one. Regrettably for Sei, everyone seems to favor the second girl over her?! Nevertheless, Sei remains unperturbed as she departs from the grand royal palace to establish her own flourishing emporium, crafting enchanting potions and exquisite cosmetics with her newfound mystical abilities. Thriving in her entrepreneurial venture, she realizes that this existence may not be as disheartening as she initially thought… as long as the weight of her alleged Sainthood doesn’t unexpectedly resurface to haunt her.
The inaugural season debuted in April 2021. Funimation live-streamed the show during its airing, providing an English dub as well.
Tachibana initiated the publication of the novels on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narou” website in 2016. Subsequently, Kadokawa released the inaugural print volume in February 2017, featuring illustrations by Yasuyuki Syuri. In July 2017, Fujiazuki’s manga adaptation debuted on Comic Walker as a component of Kadokawa’s “Flos Comic” website.
