Vinland Saga Season 2 Release & Updates

So here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Uncle from Another World Season 2 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.

The Japanese anime Uncle from Another World also as “Isekai Ojisan” in Japanese is an adaptation of the manga series written and illustrated by Hotondoshindeiru.

The story follows Takafumi Takaoka, who visits his uncle who recently awakened from a 17-year coma and finds out he was gone to another world and has returned with magical powers

Studio AtelierPontdarc produced the anime’s first season, officially running for 13 episodes from July 6, 2022, to March 8, 2023, on various local networks in Japan with multiple delays due to production issues caused by COVID-19 complications.

Netflix 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 well-thought-out parody of isekai stories and tropes with a very enjoyable and relatable slate of characters

Overall it was considered a hit among isekai and causal anime on Netflix.

Will there be a Season 2 of Isekai Ojisan (Uncle from Another World)?

As of writing, Studio AtelierPontdarc, Netflix, the publisher Kadokawa, 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, Isekai Ojisan 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
  • Sales
  • Popularity

We will now examine these factors to see if Uncle from Another World anime will get a sequel or not.

Is there enough material available for “Isekai Ojisan” Season 2?

Uncle from Another World is a direct adaptation of the manga series created by Hotondoshindeiru.

It started publication in Kadokawa Shoten’s ComicWalker online magazine in June 2018.

The first volume of the manga was released on November 21, 2018, and the latest issue is set to come out on March 22, 2023.

A total of nine volumes have been released so far, and the manga is still ongoing.

The first season of the anime adapted the first 7 volumes leaving behind only 2 volumes worth of content to adapt which isn’t enough to create another 13-episode anime season.

Conclusion: For now our biggest concern for this show’s contention is the lack of source material for the anime since it is the backbone of any anime.

It will take year another two years for enough chapters to collect due to the manga’s slow monthly release.

But on the bright side, the story is still ongoing, and author Hotondoshindeiru has a long-term plan for the story. Thus, the future of Isekai Ojisan Season 2 remains bright.

The only problem is that it will take a very long time for the story to get to a point where they can animate another season.

Manga Sales

Uncle from Another World (Isekai Ojisan) had reached a circulation count of 3.3 million copiesUncle from Another World (Isekai Ojisan) had reached a circulation count of 3.3 million copies

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 manga).

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 August 2022, Uncle from Another World (Isekai Ojisan) had reached a circulation count of 3.3 millioncopies.

The anime has had a significant impact on the sales of the series, resulting in a major boost. Prior to the anime’s premiere in July 2022, the series had a cumulative total of 1.8 million copies in circulation.

However, as of March 2023, the number had increased to 2 million copies, an impressive jump of 200k copies in just one month.

So, in just the span of 9 months, the manga series has almost doubled its circulation count with an increase of 1.5 million copies, all thanks to the positive reception the anime received.

Conclusion: typically, a manga with 500,000 to 1,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so Isekai Oji-san is performing remarkably well with these sales numbers.

And now that the anime has finally ended, we can expect a large increase in manga sales, as many anime fans will be eager to find out what happens in the story after the anime finale. They will likely want to buy the manga volumes to continue the story and get more details about the characters and plot.

So we can expect the circulation count to surpass 3.5 million in the next couple of months.

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 Isekai Oji-san, the numbers look exceptionally good so far.

According to a tweet by @Ahmedm94m, a reliable anime news source, the first Blu-ray/DVD volume of Isekai Ojisan sold a total of 1616 copies in its first week of sales.

This is actually way more than what some other isekai-fantasy anime which aired during the same year like Skeleton Knight, I am Quitting Heroing, Genius Prince and The Greatest Demon Lord sold.

While there is no reliable proof of how much the rest of the volumes sold, it is still safe to assume that the remaining three volumes also sold an average of 1,500 to 1,800 copies, bringing the total to around 6,000 units sold.

Conclusion: The series has certainly made a lot of money since the anime debuted and continues to do with its latest instalments, so profitability didn’t stand in the way of a sequel either.

The anime proved to be financially successful by increasing the manga sales count and bringing in even more money through Blu-ray, merchandise, and overseas licensing.

Therefore, the production committee was now sure to make enough money from its next project.

On NicoVideo, Japan’s largest hosting site which is their version of YouTube, the premiere episode received over 915k views and 55k comments which is 8 times more than what Eminence in Shadow got during its debut and the highest I have ever seen for an isekai/fantasy/magical anime.

Overseas popularity

The debut run of the Isekai Oji-san 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 7.87 on MyAnimeList and ranking at #836 in popularity, with more than 257k members in its MAL group.

It has also received a strong score of 7.3/10 on IMDb and a 77% 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 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.

The only problem is the lack of source material, but if the manga manages to keep the hype alive by continuing to release chapters at a steady pace and the producers remain interested, then we may be able to expect a sequel in the near future.

What will happen in Season 2?

In the season finale of Isekai Ojisan we see Yosuke projected the memories of Alicia on screen and found that she was given the title of hero for defeating an army of goblins which was Yōsuke’s doing. Alicia still remembered about magic barrier incident but promised to keep it secret which made Yosuke loosen his guard.

They went to Labyrinth of Deep Darkness together which Alicia and others had been wanting to enter and acquire the legendary Wand of Salvation ever since they were kids.

Using his magic, Yosuke quickly found a shortcut to the centre of the labyrinth and got to the magic wand. But it felt like using cheat code in the game, so Yōsuke erased everyone’s memory and started again.
