The first season ended six years ago and in this article, we are going to tell you whether you can expect the second season of SERVAMP anytime soon.
The second season of SERVAMP still hasn’t been confirmed or canceled yet. The first season aired SIX years ago and while there is still a lot of material to adapt from the original manga series, not counting possible original stories, the second season is still uncertain. Having said all of this, SERVAMP was well received as a series, and knowing that, paired with everything else, a second season is not impossible, although it is unlikely because of the time that passed since the last season.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season two of SERVAMP. 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 interesting anime series whose future is still very uncertain. If you’re not fully up-to-date with the series, we have to warn you that there is going to be a significant amount of spoilers in the paragraphs below.
What do we know about Season 2 of SERVAMP?
Servamp was first published by Kadokawa Shoten on June 15, 2011 (Issue 7/2011) in Monthly Comic Gene magazine, initially under the name Eve and Servamps. The individual chapters from the magazine have been published in 18 tankōbon so far. The tenth volume sold over 27,000 copies in the first week after publication.
In July 2014, Seven Seas Entertainment acquired the rights to publish the manga in North America in English. In German-speaking countries, the manga has been published by Tokyopop in twelve volumes since 2013. Doki-Doki publishes a French translation, Studio JG a Polish one, and Tong Li Publishing a Chinese one.
An anime adaptation of the manga was announced in the August 2015 issue of Monthly Comic Gene. The television series was produced by Brain’s Base and Platinum Vision and directed by Itto Sara, with Hideaki Nakano co-starring. The main writer was Kenji Konuta and the music was composed by Kenji Kawai. Character design was by Junko Yamanaka and the artistic direction was by Masaki Mayuzumi.
The opening song was “Deal With” by Oldcodex and the closing credits were accompanied by “sunlight avenue” by Takuma Terashima. The 12 episodes ran from July 5 to September 20, 2016 on AT-X, as well as Tokyo MX, Sun Television, Nagoya TV Hōsō, and BS Nittele with a delay of up to a week. Funimation licensed the anime to air on their website for English-speaking countries. In German-speaking countries, the anime is shown on Anime on Demand with German subtitles, while the Wakanim platform offers it in French.
On October 13, 2017, Media Factory’s Monthly Comic Gene magazine teases a “big announcement” for Strike Tanaka’s SERVAMP manga that would be released on November 15 of that same year. It was later revealed that the announcement told us about an upcoming anime film adaptation. Most of the staff from the television anime adaptation eventually came back to produce the film, with Hideaki Nakano directing the film at Platinum Vision and Junko Yamanaka designing the characters.
Ayumu Hisao eventually replaced Kenji Konuta as the scriptwriter for the project. The cast of the television series also returned to reprise their roles, which was fully expected, alongside a number of new cast members. Oldcodex, who previously performed the opening theme song for the television series, returned to perform the film’s theme song “One Side”.
As you can see, the future of the SERVAMP anime is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest or lack of material. The series was fairly well-received back in the day, and while it’s been six years (four since the movie), since anime series usually run while there’s a need to promote the written materials, the chances are not that bad.
The original manga series is still ongoing, but the situation is such that it makes it difficult for us to predict anything properly. Now, this doesn’t completely exclude the possibility of another season, but the chances are a bit slimmer so 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 first season received solid reviews, but we simply don’t know enough to make any predictions about 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. It all depends on the future so we’ll just have to wait.
What could Season 2 of SERVAMP be about?
At this moment, we do not know how far the second season of SERVAMP could take us because we don’t know how many additional chapters of the manga series 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, thanks to SERVAMP Wiki, is an overview of the original material so you can get a rough idea of what you could expect from the series
Mahiru Shirota is an ordinary high school student who likes to do things the easy way. One day, on the way home, he finds a black cat, names it Kuro, and decides to take it with him and take care of it. When Mahiru comes home from school the next day, he is surprised that instead of his cat there is a person he does not know in his apartment. Mahiru finds out that this person is Kuro and transforms into a cat when confronted with sunlight.
The black cat reveals that he is actually one of seven vampires, representing the seven deadly sins, and representing laziness. He also confessed that the moment Mahiru tied a bell around his neck and called his name when the vampire was in his human form, he and Mahiru agreed on a temporary contract.
This contract was ultimately completed when Kuro accidentally drank Mahiru’s blood, becoming his servant, known as Servamp, and Mahiru’s master, known as Eve. Shortly thereafter, the Mahiru and Kuro met Tsubaki for the first time, who claims to be the Vampire of Melancholy and thus Kuro’s and the other six Servamps’ eighth brother. Mahiru decides to find the remaining vampires of the seven deadly sins to fight Tsubaki and his minions together.
