The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Season 2 is the anticipated sequel of the popular isekai-fantasy anime which first premiered in the Spring of 2022. 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?
Vinland Saga Season 2 Release & Updates
Well here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Season 2 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.
The Japanese anime The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody also known as “Shijou Saikyou no Daimaou, Murabito A ni Tensei suru“ in Japanese is an adaptation of the light novel series written by Myojin Kato and illustrated by Sao Mizuno.
The story follows Demon Lord Varvatos, who is bored with his life as the strongest being. He decides to reincarnate in the future with average magic powers.
However, as it turns out, the level of magic has degraded in the future, and he is still as powerful as he was before.
Studio Silverlink and Blade together produced the anime’s first season, officially running for 12 episodes from April 5, 2022, to June 21, 2022, on various local networks in Japan
Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside of Japan in sub and dub, and it received mixed reviews from the viewers where some criticised it for its generic storyline, calling it another hot garbage isekai.
Still, it was pretty popular and considered a hit among the isekai and harem anime fans.
Will there be a Season 2 of The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody?
As of writing, Studio Silverlink, Studio Blade 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, The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody wasn’t one of them.

|The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
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 The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As a Typical Nobody anime will get a sequel or not.
Is there enough material available for “The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As a Typical Nobody ” Season 2?
The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody is a direct adaptation of the light novel series penned by Myojin Kato with illustrations drawn by Sao Mizuno.
It started publication online in January 2017 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Naro(Lets Bceome Novelist) and was later acquired by Kadokawa’s Fujimi Shobo who published the series in physical form.
The first volume of the light novel was released on May 19, 2018, and the last issue came out on Advent of the Great Demon King.
A total of ten volumes have been released so far, and the light novel is finished.
The first season of anime has only covered the contents from the first three volumes leaving behind 7 volumes worth of content to adapt.
Conclusion: Currently, there are 7 volumes of source material available to adapt, which is good news since the series has more than enough material for Studio Silverworks and Blade to start working on a new season right away.
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 light novel 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 Mar 7, 2021, The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody had reached 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 and “Eminence in Shadow” saw similar growth after the anime
Conclusion: typically, a manga with 500,000 to 1,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so The Greatest Demon Lord 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 21 months now and does not include the boost in sales that the series received from the anime adaptation.
So, there is a chance that 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 The Greatest Demon Lord, the situation doesn’t look good.
The sales numbers for the first Blu-ray/DVD volume of The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody was 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 The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody 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 Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody novel is a highly popular fantasy light novel series in Japan, as evidenced by how it began its life as a webnovel which gained immense support and was later adapted into a light novel with drawn illustrations.
Moreover, it managed to get an anime adaptation 4 years after the original novel ended indicating that there is an unending demand for this series despite its relatively short run.
The anime’s debut in Japan was highly anticipated, and it quickly became one of the most-watched shows of the Spring 2022 season. It ranked top on several streaming websites, including the D-Anime Store and AbemaTV.
On NicoVideo, Japan’s largest hosting site which is their version of YouTube, the premiere episode received over 108k views and 9k comments, which is almost as much as “I’m Quitting Heroing,” got which was also airing during the same season.
Successful manga adaptation
With the success of the light novel, The Greatest Demon Lord was greenlit for a manga adaptation in May 2018. The first publication by Misuho Kotoba was serialized in Square Enix’s Monthly Big Gangan magazine.
It has been compiled into seven volumes of manga. Comikey has licensed the manga for English release.
The debut run of the Yuusha Yamemasu anime adaptation received a positive reception from 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 decent score of 6.28 on MyAnimeList and ranking at #933 in popularity, with more than 232k members in its MAL group.
It has also received a decent score of 6.1/10 on IMDb and a 67% approval rating on AniList.This shows that while the show’s rating is very low its 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 has the potential to generate a good amount of revenue from merchandise sales.
One reason it might not get not a new season:
One reason that I believe that The Greatest Demon Lord won’t get a new season is because the production committee never intended to profit from the anime. They saw it as a promotional tool for the light novel, which ended right when the anime was airing. (Light novel ended in May 2022, manga in July 2022 and anime in June 2022)
It’s common for producers to adapt manga or light novels into anime as they approach their endings to boost sales. This is because when people watch an anime and like it, they often want to know what happens next.
They might wait for a sequel or read the source material. If they find out that the source material is completed, they are more likely to buy the whole thing because they know their investment will have an actual end.
This has happened with several series, including Kubo-san Won’t Let Me Be Invisible, Horimiya, and Higehiro. So The Greatest Demon Lord anime has already done its job of advertising the light novel, so it’s unlikely to return for a second season.
Still, if the producers manage to make a lot of money from what they invested in the anime production, then they might even greenlight a season 2
The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody Season 2 Release date and Countdown
As of March 2023, The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical NobodySeason 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet. However, if a new season is confirmed, it is likely to air sometime in late-2024, or possibly in early-2025.
This is cause the first season premiered from April 2022 to June 2022 and it typically takes around 1-2 years to produce a new season.

What will happen in Season 2?
Since the first season covered the first three volumes, the next season of The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn As A Typical Nobody will begin with covering the fourth volume titled “TO THE REAL JOURNEY!” and for the Bonus, this volume has a BEACH EPISODE.
Yen Press the English distributor of the series describes the story of volume two as such:
“A trip to the ancient world has undone the curse of Lydia the Champion, releasing Ard from a lifetime of agony. Now he can finally focus on the true adventure before them their field trip to the old capital of Kingsglaive!
However, it’s becoming clear he can’t stay out of trouble for long.

Kingsglaive was the most advanced city not only in the nation but even in the ancient world. Demon Lord had gone through hoops and hurdles to build and maintain this huge metropolis.
