The Faraway Paladin Season 2 Release Date

It’s always nice to receive another generic Isekai anime with a generic plot and an adventurous theme, although the series is more popular for its laid-back tone and decent characters. The first season was a great way and the faraway paladin season 2 has been announced.

Even with the generic isekai setting, the story was engaging with unique plots and interesting characters, not the mention the well-done magic mechanics that made the series worth watching. Where will William’s adventures take him now?

The art in the illustration speaks of the fantastic work of Character designers. It’s almost been a year since the announcement of the faraway paladin season 2 was came to light. There hasn’t been any news regarding the studio producing the series and the staff members. More information about the sequel will be revealed later.

Many factors play a role in deciding whether a show will receive a sequel from its general popularity, the amount of source material and if the initial season was able to promote the source material and attract fans.

And while there is no denying the story was engaging, the show wasn’t as popular as I had hoped. The overall Isekai theme with an overly talented main character made it seem like a cheap copy of thousand other shows.

The series is based on a Japanese light novel series. It is immensely more popular than the anime adaptation. It certainly means the series has failed to promote the source material and any upcoming anime sequel will likely have a lesser budget.

However, something like this is normal when an important like this is taken by studios with no prior experience in creating action-fantasy series. Hopefully, a more competent studio will pick up the sequel.
