It has been a year since the last season ended and the viewers are still desperately hoping for its new instalment. So, when will viewers be able to see more of this show?
Well here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Genius Prince Season 2 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.
The Japanese anime The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt(Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu) also known as “Genius Prince” for shortin Japanese is an adaptation of the light novel series written by Toru Toba and illustrated by fal_maro
The story follows Wein Salema Arbalest, the genius prince of the Kingdom of Natra, who is working hard to raise his kingdom out of debt. But, in reality, he is a lazy younger person who would rather sell off his kingdom than shoulder the responsibilities of ruling it.
Studio Yokohama Animation Laboratory produced the anime’s first season, officially running for 12 episodes from January 11, 2022, to March 29, 2022, on various local networks in Japan.
Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside of Japan with both sub and dub, and it received a positive reception from viewers and critics alike. Most praised it for being a perfect blend of fantasy, politics, and comedy with a very interesting slate of characters and story beats.
Overall it was considered a hit among fantasy anime fans.
Will there be a Season 2 of The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt?
As of writing, Studio Yokohama Animation Laboratory, the publisher SB creative, or any other member of the production committee has not officially renewed the anime for a second season.
A lot of anime manages to get a new season right after the first season finale but unfortunately, Genius Prince wasn’t one of them.

However, it is possible to speculate whether an anime will get a new season or not by carefully evaluating these three factors:
- Availability of source material
We will now examine these factors to see if Genius Prince anime will get a sequel or not.
Is there enough material available for Genius Prince season 2?
The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt is a direct adaptation of the light novel series penned by Toru Toba with illustrations drawn by fal_maro.
SB Creative is publishing the series in physical and digital form under their GA Bunko label since May 2018.
The first volume of the light novel was released on May 12, 2018, and the latest issue come out on September 14, 2022.
A total of twelve volumes have been released so far, and the light novel is still ongoing.
The first season of the anime covered the first six volumes, leaving behind 6 volumes’ of content to adapt.
Conclusion: Currently, there are 6 volumes of content available to adapt, which is good news since the series has more than enough material for Studio Yokohama Animation Laboratory to start working on a new season right away.
Moreover, the series is still ongoing with a consistent release of new volumes, so that’s a big plus for getting a sequel.
Light Novel Sales
Before we proceed, it’s important to understand that most of the anime we watch today are created primarily to promote and boost the sales of its source material (in this case a light novel).
Sales from the manga and related merchandise are the main source of income for the producers, while revenue from advertising fees, online streaming licensing, and Blu-ray sales are considered secondary
Typically, a 12-episode anime television series costs around $3,000,000 to produce.
Therefore, an anime has to make back this much money through merchandise sales and licensing fees to ensure a new season from the producers.
As of December 2021, The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt had a circulation count of 250k copies across the light novel, manga, and digital downloads.
However, this count is from before the anime aired and has not been updated for 14 months.
Anime adaptations have been known to have a significant impact on the sales and popularity of their source material. This was demonstrated by the success of “How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom,” which saw a near-doubling of its sales within six months of its anime premiere.
Following the release of the anime adaptation of The Genius Prince in January, the series began to make regular appearances in the top ten of weekly best-selling light novels.
During the week of January 10-16, the time period in which the first episode aired, the light novel ranked fourth in the sales chart with 6,882 copies sold, standing between giants like Slime Isekai and Jobless Reincarnation.
The following week saw it retain its fourth position, while in the third week, it slid to fifth place with 7,304 copies sold. The series closed out the month with an eighth-place finish.
As a result of this surge in popularity, The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt became the 11th best-selling light novel of January 2022, placing it in between the hugely successful series Arifureta and No Game No Life.
Conclusion: typically, a manga with 500,000 to 1,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so Genius Prince isn’t performing well with these sales numbers.
However, as we previously mentioned, the above circulation count of 250,000 copies has not been updated in over 14 months and does not include the boost in sales that the series received from the anime adaptation.
Therefore, the actual circulation count may have already exceeded 750,000 copies or even higher by now.
Blu-ray/ DVDs and other Merchandise sales
While Blu-rays and DVDs are no longer key players in determining anime success as they used to be back in the 2010s, they are still a great tool to understand a show’s popularity among the general Japanese audience. In general, if an anime’s disc sales are over 3,000, a second season would be promising.
As for Genius Prince, the situation doesn’t look very promising.
The sales numbers for the first Blu-ray/DVD volume of Genius Prince were so low that it failed to even make it to Oricon’s weekly sales ranking which means it couldn’t even manage to sell more than 200 copies.
However, it’s important to note that Blu-ray sales are no longer the only measure of a show’s success, as streaming fees have become a more significant factor in the industry.
Conclusion: Based on the sales numbers, it appears that Genius Prince anime failed to generate a profit for its producers through the home video release, which is not a promising sign for the show’s future.
However, it is possible that the show managed to recoup its production costs through licensing fees and merchandise sales, so there may still be hope for its continuation.
Popularity in Japan and the West
The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt light novel is quite a popular isekai light novel series in Japan as evidenced by its impressive sales during January 2022.
The anime’s debut in Japan was highly anticipated, and it quickly became one of the most-watched shows of the Winter 2022 season. It ranked top on several streaming websites, including the D-Anime Store and AbemaTV.
Moreover, with the success of the light novel, Genius Prince was greenlit for a manga adaptation in October 2019.
The publication by Emuda is serialized in Square Enix’s Manga UP online manga website. It has already been compiled into eight volumes of the manga.
The debut run of the Tensai Oji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu anime adaptation received a positive reception from the fans in the west, with many viewers and critics praising it for being even better than the source material in some aspects.
The series has garnered positive reviews from viewers around the world, earning a solid score of 7.4 on MyAnimeList and ranking at #908in popularity, with more than 237k members in its MAL group, which is a higher rating than its direct competitor How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom, another political fantasy anime about a prince running a struggling Kingdom.
It has also received a strong score of 7.1/10 on IMDb and a 72% approval rating on AniList. This shows that the show’s popularity is very high even though it is a young series.
In conclusion, the series has gained a significant following in both Japan and the West and generated a ton of revenue from merchandise sales, indicating that it has a strong and loyal fanbase.
With enough source material and the potential to make even more sales, it is inevitable that The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of DebtSeason 2 will be announced. It is no longer a question of if it will get a new season, but when it will get a new season.
