Black Summoner is a Japanese light novel series written by Doufu Mayoi and illustrated by Kurogin. It began publishing online on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō novel publishing website in October 2014. An anime adaptation of the series by Satelight premiered on July 9, 2022 and is currently one of the more talked-about shows within the community. While we’re enjoying the first season, we have decided to tell you everything we know about a potential second season of Black Summoner.
The second season of Black Summoner still hasn’t been confirmed yet. The first season is currently airing and the light novel is still ongoing, so there is a good possibility that Black Summoner could return for a second season. Having said all of this, Black Summoner is quite a popular series and based on all the known facts, a second season is not impossible. We just don’t know when.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 2 of Black Summoner. You’re going to find out about its potential release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, and much more about this extremely popular new anime series.
Black Summoner Season 2 release date
Written by Doufu Mayoi, the series began publishing online in Shōsetsuka ni Narō on October 6, 2014. The series was later acquired by Overlap, who began publishing the series with illustrations by Kurogin under their Overlap Bunko imprint on June 25, 2016. Seventeen volumes have been published to date. In July 2020, J-Novel Club announced that it has licensed the series for publication in English.
A manga adaptation, illustrated by Gin Ammo, began serialization in Comic Gardo on January 11, 2018. The individual chapters have been collected into thirteen tankōbon volumes to date. J-Novel Club is also publishing the manga in English.
An anime adaptation of the series was announced on February 17, 2022. It is produced by Satelight and directed and written by Yoshimasa Hiraike, with Miwa Oshima designing the characters and Michiru and Yuri Miyazono composing the music. It premiered on July 9, 2022 on Tokyo MX and is still ongoing as of the time of writing. The opening theme is “Ataman Chū Dead End”, performed by Retobea (unknown Vo:10fu), while the ending theme is “Wherever”, performed by Minori Suzuki. Crunchyroll licensed the series outside of Asia.
As you can see, the future of Black Summoner is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest or because there’s a lack of material. The series is very popular and we’ll just have to see how the manga keeps doing to make any proper predictions about the potential continuation of the series. In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is 2024, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or 2023.
Black Summoner Season 2 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to Black Summoner Season 2, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the second season of Black Summoner. This is because we do not know whether there will even be a second season of the show, which means that a trailer might not appear at all. But, based on all the information we have, this does not seem like a likely outcome.
As we have said, Black Summoner is a very likely candidate for a return. The anime has received acclaim from both professional critics and the otaku community, and is very popular, with the light novel still being published. After that, we have to wait and see whether there are actual plans for a continuation before we can make a proper prediction.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for Black Summoner is unlikely to come out this or before the end of next year. The earliest we could see a trailer is 2023, but we would have to get confirmation of a second season sometime during this or early next year for that to happen.
Black Summoner Season 2 plot
At this moment, we do not know where the second season of Black Summoner could take us because we don’t know how many chapters of the manga the season could potentially adapt. Namely, due to a lack of information in general and the fact that the first season is still not over (which is why, at the time of writing, we don’t know how many volumes are going to be adapted), we have absolutely no clue how far the second season might go if it even happens. What follows is a general overview of the show’s plot.
By the mistake of a God, the young Kelvin dies and agrees to be reincarnated in a new world with the abilities of his own choosing, but all his memories, except his name, have been taken. Upon awakening in the new world, he discovers that he chose to be a Summoner magician and the Goddess of Reincarnation, Melfina, is now his servant in the form of an interactive game menu.
Arriving in the city of Parth, he joins the adventurer’s guild as a basic mage, keeping his summoner ability a secret as Melfina explains that summoners are so rare and powerful that kings would start wars to take him. He takes a quest to kill slime monsters and after defeating and taming a slime he names it Clotho, which also gives it a distinct personality.
He learns from Melfina that before he was reincarnated he made his Summoner Rank S, the highest possible, which made him the most powerful Summoner alive, and since he is still only Rank 1, he will become even more powerful as his Rank increases. . His ability also provides a huge boost to his summons, as Clotho is now 100 times stronger.
Returning to Parth, he is disturbed to discover that slavery is common in this world, but tries not to think about it and instead rents a room for the night. Kelvin quickly rises to rank E. D-rank adventurer Cashel, seeking to humiliate Kelvin, advises him to hunt down the knight Darkghost. With the Assess ability on him, Kelvin sees that Cashel is an Assassin, so instead of joining him, he suggests a contest, Kelvin against Cashel’s entire group.
Cashel and members of his criminal group, Gimul and Raj, conspire to assassinate Kelvin. Kelvin captures Raj while Gimul is captured by Clotho, who has now turned into a Gluttonous Slime, an almost legendary Demon King class monster. Cashel is easily beaten by Kelvin and confesses to hunting low-ranking adventurers for experience, for which they are arrested.
Kelvin locates the Darkghost knight who already has a personality and a name, Gerard. Gerard is able to explain that he was once a human knight, but became a monster after his death. After a brief duel to gauge each other’s strength, Gerard is abruptly reminded that the kingdom he once served, Alcarl, was destroyed by an elf named Jildora when Alcarl failed to help Lizea’s Empire destroy Deramis’ Holy Empire.
This also caused the deaths of Gerard’s wife and daughter, Betty and Connie, whose grief kept him tied to the world after his death. The next day, Kelvin provides a piece of Gerard’s armor as proof that he completed the job, and combined with Cashel’s reward, he is promoted again. Gerard joins Clotho and Melfina as Kelvin’s new monster.
Kelvin meets with the Guild Master, Leo, who asks him if Kelvin came from another world, showing that his Appraisal Skill is more powerful than Kelvin’s Concealment Skill, so he can see that he is a Summoner. Leo admits that he knew Cashel was a murderer, but since Cashel was a foreign nobleman he needed proof, for which he is grateful to Kelvin.
He also reveals that he knows other people who have been reincarnated and that they are the current Heroes of the Holy Empire of Deramis who are facing the Demon King, so Leo wants Kelvin to focus on the monsters that have become more violent due to the death. influence of the Demon King. Kelvin agrees and decides to buy a slave, train her and add her to his team.
He searches for the slave he saw on her first day, a beautiful half-elf named Efil who has so far not been sold due to her being under a curse that burns those who touch her. By buying her, he breaks her curse and allows her to touch people for the first time. Returning to her quarters, Efil is taken under the wing of Claire, her landlady, as Kelvin shows her how to use her previously unspent skill points. Kelvin cannot sleep that night, as he is forced to share his bed with Efil.
Black Summoner Season 2 cast
It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential second season of Black Summoner in terms of cast and characters, simply because we do not know whether there will even be a second season. But, seeing how we know that the series is going to have a more-or-less fixed cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season two, if it ever happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in season one, likely to return for a second season, include:
|Character||Japanese Voice Actor||English Voice Actor|
|Kelvin||Koki Uchiyama||Van Barr|
|Efil||Manaka Iwami||Bev Megato|
|Melfina||Reina Ueda||Tia Ballard|
|Gerard||Yōsuke Akimoto||Bruce Carey|
|Sera||Minori Suzuki||Alexis Tipton|
|Ange||Konomi Inagaki||Brittney Karbowski|
Where to watch Black Summoner Season 2?
At this moment, as expected, there is no means of watching Black Summoner season two, as there is no season two of Black Summoner to watch. The first season was streamed globally by Crunchyroll, the best anime-related site on the Internet, so it is safe to assume that a second season would also be streamed via Crunchyroll.
Will there be a Black Summoner Season 3?
The future of Black Summoner is, as of this moment, unknown. At this moment, we don’t really know anything about a second season, so whether we’ll be seeing the third season or not is still unknown. The series has done well and is still ongoing, so there is still a lot of material to adapt, which is a good sign for fans of Black Summoner. Depending on how a potential second season goes, Black Summoner could very well be renewed for a third season as well.
