The manga and the light novel came under the light of famous animation studio house, and immediately got picked up by a renowned Japanese animation studio called Madhouse.
Some anime series come and never return, or take a longer time to return. However, when such animes come for the first time, blows everyone's mind with their impeccable storyline and characters. Similar to that is the 'Irregular at Magic High School', which is called Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei in Japanese. This fantasy anime television series is based on a light novel series of the same name. The light novel series got published for the first time on July 8, 2011, and is written by Tsutomu Satou and illustrated by Kana Ishida. Eventually, each story arc in the light novel series got adapted into manga series which was illustrated later by various artists and published by many publishers.
Soon the manga and the light novel came under the light of famous animation studio house, and immediately got picked up by a renowned Japanese animation studio called Madhouse. On April 2014, fans got a chance to enjoy the first season of The Irregular at Magic High School. Clearly, it has been a long time ever since season 2 of The Irregular at Magic High School got mentioned, and fans are really disappointed to not see any sign of season 2 happening. Let's try to join the dots to see whether there is hope for season 2 or not.
In 2017, June, fans finally got to see and know about the continuation of the story after the release of a film called 'The Girl Who Calls the Stars', which apparently was a sequel to the first season. The movie featured new characters and plot and also gave fans hope that someday they will get to see the second season of 'The Irregular at Magic High School', famously known as Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei.
Another factor and probably the very important one that tells us to stay positive about the making of season 2 is the audience's reaction and the rating it got. According to MAL, The Irregular at Magic High School scored 7.76/10 ~ 200,000 votes. The anime series also received positive responses from the viewers of Crunchyroll, estimating the series at 4.2 out of 5 stars. The Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei came for the first time in 2014 on Tokyo MX. Eventually, TVQ, BS11, AT-X, and other famous Japanese television networks started airing the anime. The first season of the show consisted of 26 episodes. Analyzing every facet available to us, it wouldn't be a wrong thing to say that the chances are pretty high of 'The Irregular at Magic High School' getting another season.
Even though there have been many reports and rumors regarding season 2 of The Irregular at Magic High School, we cannot really believe any of those as they are not credible. The fact that season 2 is yet to be confirmed officially, we will have to wait for official news to put the rumors at rest. However, if we want to guess, then we can hope to hear something related to the second season of The Irregular at Magic High School to fall sometime in 2020 or 2021. Fans can surely vouch for this.
The story shows the scenario of WWIII, where the world is divided between four superpowers- USNA, New USSR, the Great Asian Alliance, and Japan. This alternate world has technology as the magic rather than any sacred wisdom. However, only some can practice these skills since they are passed through genetics. Because of this, those children who are born with those magic abilities are forced to attend special schools. These schools are not like any ordinary ones, as these institutions develop a particular magic aspect from where these children are required to whence their specialization. Japan has nine such special schools, and Tatsuya Shiba, attends one of such schools together with his sister Miyuki. The fact that they are siblings was not enough for them to own and possess equal skills, because of which both of them gets separated and enrolled in different courses depending on their special abilities. Even though Tatsuya knows that there is a lack of magical capabilities in him, he also is aware of the fact that he is the master of technical knowledge and can beat anyone with his knowledge. But this makes him an irregular student in the school's standards of ranking.
It’d be dope if #DaylightSavingsTime could go ahead and jump us into April so that The Irregular at Magic High School season 2, One Punch Man season 2, and Penguin Highway would all be released.— Tibarn (@Legerdemaen) March 10, 2019
Why must it end with a freaking cliff-hanger after resolving the conflict?! Ffs I think I'd rather they didn't resolve it if they were just going to end it abruptly! Plus, no news about the possibility of a season 2. 😡 — watching The irregular at magic high school - Mahouka— Sapphire Aiushtha 🌐 (@SapphAi) May 15, 2018
