This is a live-update article and it will be updated as new details about Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2 come our way. This is what we know so far.
It's been seven years now since the animated version of Hiro Anana's light novel series 'Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody" debuted on television. It is a product of the renowned animation studio Silver Link, which is known for animating other projects such as 'Strike the Blood' and 'Kokoro Connect.' If you're the kind of person who just got into the swing of isekai storylines, be it manga or anime, then Death March would be something to get really really excited about. But if you're like us, you probably won't see anything too different in this series than what has been applied in several other series before it. It’s pretty much the “if you have seen it once, you’ve seen it all” kind of mentality. Still, if this series fascinates you and you wish to know whether it's getting a sequel to the first season, then we'll be happy to share it with you here in this article.
At the moment, there has not been any confirmation on whether there will be a second season of the show. However, this does not necessarily mean that the series has been canceled as there has been no official statement on the matter from Silver Link, Connect, and other companies involved in producing the show. Despite the series belonging to a popular but overused genre in anime, it has received positive feedback from both fans and critics worldwide. This may lead the studio and directors to consider continuing the series due to its significant demand. Moreover, the first season's finale left viewers with a cliffhanger, indicating that the studio may plan to continue the story in the future. Though there has been no official announcement yet, the community remains optimistic about the show's potential continuation.
Death March originally started out as a web novel that was first published on March 3, 2013 and was subsequently adapted into a manga and an anime series. The manga series was released in December 2014, and the anime series was announced through a wraparound band on the manga's fourth volume which was released on December 10, 2016. The anime series is directed by Shin Ōnuma with animation done by Silver Link and Connect. It ran for 12 episodes between January 11 to March 29, 2018, on AT-X. The story of Death March starts with a 29-year-old gaming programmer named Ichiro Suzuki who was supposed to fix a number of technical issues in two MMORPGs for the company that he was working for, before their publication. To correct the bug, he had to work overtime during the weekend. Unfortunately, the stress accumulated from his job took a serious toll on his body, weakening it to the point where he passed away in his sleep. After that, he suddenly woke up in a parallel world greatly resembling the fantasy RPG games that he was working on in his previous world. Now, he goes by the name of Satou Pendragon in the New World, which is conveniently the nickname he used when he was running beta tests in the Old World.
From the moment Suzuki restarts his life in the game that he created in his previous life, it was at the game's start menu. By the time he was wrapping his head around the situation, he was abruptly ambushed by a band of lizard men and was forced to fend them off using three special 'Meteor Rain' attacks on them. But while he was killing the lizards, he also killed a god allowing his stats to shoot up significantly. Now realizing how dire the situation is, Suzuki sets out to accomplish his objective in the game so he can soon learn to find his way out of it. Now, armed with a slew of the most advanced weapons and magical skills in his arsenal, he sets out to start his journey. During his travels, he encounters and befriends a number of allies, including Zina Marienteil, Pochi, Liza, Tama, Arisa, and Lulu.
