Here's what fans can expect from The Irregular At Magic High School season 2. The Irregular At Magic High School anime series is based on the Japanese light novel series of the same name and takes place in a future society where magic can be accessed via technology. The story follows Tatsuya and his sister Miyuki as they enter the First High School to hone their magic abilities. Despite being placed in a lower class, Tatsuya's all-conquering greatness with magic and technology soon makes him stand out as an irregular among the students.
The anime adaptation by Madhouse Studios (One Punch Man) of The Irregular At Magic High School arrived in 2014 and covered roughly the first seven volumes of the light novels. The show was considered a slick, entertaining production, though critics took issue with the pacing and over-reliance on exposition to explain how magic functions in nearly every episode. A movie spinoff titled The Irregular at Magic High School The Movie: The Girl Who Calls the Stars was released in 2016.
While it's been a while since the original series aired fans are still eagerly awaiting The Irregular At Magic High School season 2. Here's what we know so far.
The Irregular at Magic High School Season 2 Is Happening
The Irregular At Magic High School season 2 was confirmed by Madhouse in 2015. Little was heard about the second season after it was announced and while it was initially reported the show would air in 2017, it appears work on The Irregular At Magic High School The Movie: The Girl Who Calls The Stars may have pushed it back.
The Irregular at Magic High School Season 2 Release Date
Sadly, the release date for The Irregular At Magic High School season 2 has yet to be confirmed. Some reports suggest season 2 would air April 5, 2019, but Madhouse hasn't announced an air date yet. Other reports state season 2 will run for 13 episodes instead of the 26 that comprised season 1 and it could appear sometime in fall 2019, but again, this has yet to be officially confirmed.
The Irregular at Magic High School Season 2 Story
The Irregular at Magic High School The Movie: The Girl Who Calls the Stars adapted volumes 10 and 11 of the novel series, with Tatsuya and Miyuki having completed their first year of magic high school. The Irregular At Magic High School season 2 will, presumably, take place after the events of the movie and follow the siblings during their second year. In the light novels, they face androids infected by parasites and other rival magicians, so season 2 is sure to be anything but boring.
