The light novel series that the anime adaptation is based on continues serialization. Will the anime series return for more?
'Assasins Pride' may have received mixed reviews on the first season, but there are still plenty of people who wished for season 2.
The anime series is an adaptation of a Japanese fantasy light novel series written by Kei Amagi and illustrated by Nino Ninomotois.
Studio EMT Squared released season one with 12 episodes that ran from October to December 2019.
With plenty of source material left to cover, let us find out if season 2 will be here soon.
Renewal status as of this writing: Pending
Despite popular demand, 'Assasins Pride' is yet to get renewed for season 2.
The show enjoyed spectacular ratings on IMDb and MyAnimelist during its debut. However, as the season went further, the ratings significantly dropped after critics got disappointed with the plot development.
Nonetheless, the anime series still managed to have an active and loyal fan base, who still enjoyed and connected with the storyline. These fans continue to anticipate season 2, but Studio EMT Squared is yet to hear their call.
Production for anime series often takes a long time, and with the renewal for 'Assasins Pride' still pending, we are likely to wait even longer.
The earliest possible date we are looking at now would be 2022. That is if the show secures the renewal in the next month and begins production immediately.
Don't feel bad cause this is just normal. Even big anime series like 'Attack On Titan' and 'One-Punch Man' have long production gaps between seasons.
We will continue to watch out for any development in the series and keep you posted.
‘Assassins Pride’ follows Melida Angel, a girl born in an aristocratic family but without mana.
She is sent to an Academy to hone her non-existing skills, hoping that it would help her acquire supernatural abilities.
Kufa Vampir becomes her Mana instructor. He was tasked to teach Melida these abilities, but with one condition. If she fails to develop any, he will have to kill her.
Desperate to save Melida, Kufa offers her an extreme way that will unlock her true hidden potential. But hiding this secret from her family comes with a big consequence.
Season 1 covered the first five volumes of the light novel series. Thankfully, author Kei Amagi continued to write more, and as of June 2020, a total of 12 volumes have already been launched.
This gives the anime adaptation ample source material should it get renewed for season 2.
There's more story left to tell about Melida and Kufa's relationship in the next volumes.
We can not expect to see the season 2 trailer very soon since the renewal is not confirmed yet. We will continue to monitor the anime series for future updates.
While waiting, here is the season one trailer for you. You can still watch the complete episodes of 'Assasins Pride' on Crunchyroll.
