Moments after its final episode broadcast, Reincarnated as a Sword has been officially renewed for season 2 in a new preview trailer.

The end of the anime broadcasting slate can be a time filled with angst and worry as fans around the world contemplate whether or not their favorite series will be renewed for another season.

Whilst the vast majority of anime series’ take the opportunity to save any announcement until after the following slate, rumors about renewals are constantly spread online.

This is the case for Studio C2C’s Reincarnated as a Sword; so what do we know so far about season 2 of this anime series?

Reincarnated as a Sword episode 12 release date and time

Reincarnated as a Sword episode 12 is scheduled to premiere via the HiDive streaming platform on Wednesday, December 21.

The final episode from the anime series will be made available to stream online at the following international times:

  • Eastern Time – 9:30 AM
  • British Time – 2:30 PM
  • European Time – 3:30 PM

“Cruise and the others were also transferred and attacked by a horde of trick spiders. A trap was even triggered, and they were in a desperate crisis. Will Fran and her mentor make it in time? ……!” – Episode 12 Story, via official website

Reincarnated as a Sword season 2 renewal confirmed

Only moments ago, Reincarnated as a Sword was publicly renewed for season 2 by Studio C2C, the production team behind the anime adaptation.

The announcement included a brand new teaser trailer, see below, although a targeted release window was not shared.

“TV Anime “Tensei Tara Katana De Dekade” 2nd Season Production Announced! The TV anime “Reincarnation: Sword” will be producing its second season! The adventures of Fran and her master will continue! Please look forward to more news!” – Reincarnated as a Sword season 2 announcement, via tenken-anime.

Whilst fans will be delighted with this news, many had been expecting a renewal for some time since popular anime leaker SugoiLITE recently claimed that the production decision on season 2 of Reincarnated as a Sword had already been made.

According to AnimeGeek, episode 12 is expected to adapt up until the middle of light novel volume 2 or volume 6 chapter 29 of the manga version of Reincarnated as a Sword.

The good news is that as of December 2022, a total of 14 complete Tankobon volumes of the light novel series have been published in Japan; there are also 12 volumes of the manga version.

This means that there is potentially enough source material for at least two more anime seasons of Reincarnated as a Sword, but this is dependent on the series also being successful enough to merit another broadcast.

Thankfully, the reviews and ratings for Reincarnated as a Sword have been generally positive across the board; scoring a 7.58/10 on MyAnimeList, 7.2/10 on IMDB, 4/5 on Anime Planet, and 74% on Anilist.

“The story won’t let you get you bored, Fran and Shisho will face more and more strong enemies, but it’s also very fun on their daily life, when they are just on a day-off from adventure. For anyone who enjoys a fantasy story, I recommend this anime a lot.” – User review, via IMDB.

Overall, it was only a matter of time before Reincarnated as a Sword was publicly renewed for season 2; with the decision for another adventure likely having already been made internally several months ago – onward to another adventure!
