Dragonar Academy is a light novel series written by Shiki Mizuchi and illustrated by Kohada Shimesaba. It was been published by Media Factory from June 2010 to November 2014. A manga adaptation drawn by Ran was been published in Monthly Comic Alive magazine between October 2011 and December 2016, later being collected in 13 volumes. A twelve-episode anime adaptation produced by C-Station also saw the light of day; it was broadcast between April and June 2014. It’s been years since the first season premiered and in this article, we are going to tell you whether you can expect a second season of Dragonar Academy anytime soon.
The second season of Dragonar Academy still hasn’t been confirmed or canceled yet. The first season aired eight years ago and while there still is a lot of material to adapt from the now-finished light novel and manga series, the second season is still uncertain. Having said all of this, Dragonar Academy was a solidly popular and well-received series, and based on all the known facts, a second season is not impossible. We just don’t know when it could happen.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 2 of Dragonar Academy. 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 exciting anime series whose future is still somewhat uncertain.
Will Dragonar Academy Season 2 happen?
The Dragonar Academy light novel series was written by Shiki Mizuchi and illustrated by Kohada Shimesaba. It has been collected in a total of 20 volumes when it ended back in 2015. A manga adaptation was drawn by Ran from October 22, 2011 to December 23, 2016 in the Monthly Comic Alive magazine. The first bound volume was published on October 22, 2011, and 13 volumes have been released in total.
The anime adaptation was announced in July 2013. It was produced at C-Station studio with direction by Shunsuke Tada and Tomoyuki Kurokawa, screenplay by Ryoji Maru, and compositions by Takasugu Wakabayashi. It originally aired on AT-X from April 5 to June 21, 2014, and has twelve episodes. So, what does all of this tell us?
As you can see, the future of the Dragonar Academy anime is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest or because there’s a lack of material. The series was quite well-received and we’ll just have to see whether there is enough interest for a continuation to make any proper predictions about the potential continuation of the series. The light novel and the manga did well, and the first season received solid reviews, but it’s been a while and there has been no news on the show’s future.
In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is late 2023, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or easily 2023; 2024 is also a strong possibility. The fans are demanding a new season, but we’ll just have to see how it goes; as far as things stand now, a cancelation has not been confirmed, but we cannot rule it out either.
What could be the plot of Dragonar Academy Season 2?
At this moment, we do not know how far the second season of Dragonar Academy 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, we have absolutely no clue how far the second season might go if it even happens. What follows is an overview of the source material that could be adapted in a potential second season.
When Princess Silvia insults her, Ash accepts her challenge to compete with her to prove her wrong. Ash is ambushed by Milgaus and Anya of the Zepharos Empire during the race. When Anya nearly falls into a sinkhole, Ash saves her. He falls into himself and is saved when his companion wakes up. Ash’s sidekick was born and named Eco by him, and she’s not at all what he expects.
Later, while shopping with Eco, she is kidnapped by Angela Cornwell and rescued by Ash and Princess Silvia. A giant dragon attacks the town, and it’s up to the student council members to help it. While fighting with it, Eco is taken by this dragon. Eco is sent to a workshop that produces bows. There she meets someone named Navi.
Navi then explains the situation and how Eco can help them by creating an arc. After defeating the dragon, a fan club is formed by students searching for the identity of the Silver Knight who defeated the dragon. Ash must keep his identity as a silver knight a secret. Meanwhile, the first princess, Silvia’s sister, Veronica, decides to visit her little sister at the Academy.
After Veronica publicly humiliates Silvia, she tells him of her intention to betroth her to a knight. Veronica tells Silvia to pray for forgiveness because of her weakness in church. Then, the church is taken over by a group of bandits led by Avdocha Kiltzkaya guerrillas, who threaten to bomb the church with everyone inside.
Ash walks in to negotiate with her, while Veronica enacts her plan to save everyone, though she originally planned to blow up the church by Avdocha Kiltzkaya. This ultimately results in Silvia and the townspeople being saved. After Ash is picked to go to boot camp, they find out about the newest student council member, Lucca, who has a bigger reputation than the student council president.
She has some problems with her dragon, Gawain, and the student council members as her friends must help her. Upon arriving at boot camp, the student council continues their efforts to speak to Gawain. After Ash successfully climbs onto Gawain’s back, he falls unconscious and talks to Gawain in the Highdragon workshop.
There, Ash discovers that Gawain won’t let Lucca ride him because the two recently had an accident, and he doesn’t want to put her in danger like before. With Gawain gone, Ash, Silvia, and Eco must help Lucca locate him. At the same time, the camp is ambushed by a horde of Necromancia. Students and staff fight them.
The group find Gawain, but Milgauss is there with a large Necromancia dragon. The group defeats him and the dragon. They kill the Necromancia dragons at the school and rescue Gawain. Silvia, Ash, and Eco are invited to the capital by Silvia’s father so he can meet them. Once in the capital, Silvia reunites with her father while Ash and Eco explore the city.
When Ash meets Silvia’s father, he proclaims him Dragonar. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, an evil group plots and waits to begin their plan to kidnap Eco and awaken his dragon form. Realizing she will never be with Ash, Eco runs away. Outside and away from everyone, Eco is kidnapped by the evil group. While looking for her, Silvia and Ash discover that she has been kidnapped and decide to save her.
The evil group carry out their plan and force Eco to take his dragon form. Eco then becomes possessed by the spirit that officially resided in Silvia’s brother’s body. Eco loses control of his body and wreaks havoc on the city. This spurs Ash into action. Ash ventures into Eco’s mind, battling and defeating the ghost, returning Eco to his human form, and saving the town.
