The hilarious anime ended two years ago, but the fans can’t wait to see Cautious Hero Season 2. It is an anime adaptation of the light novel of the same name, written by Light Tuchihi and illustrated by Saori Toyota.
If you have ever heard the long-light novel’s title, this is one of them. The Japanese name for this series is Kono Yuusha ga Ore Tueee Kuse ni Shinchou sugiru.
Light Tuchihi began the serialization as a web novel in 2016, published on the website Kakuyomu, owned by Kadokawa. Fujimi Shobo then acquired the title and started publishing the first volume in 2017. The publisher also released the manga adaptation in 2018 in Monthly Dragon Age magazine. For the North America audience, Yes Press licensed the light novel.
In the same years as the manga adaptation, White Fox announced the production of the anime television series. Masayuki Sakoi, who worked on Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online, directed the series. It aired from October 2 until December 27, 2019, listed with 12 episodes.
While it was not a long ago that the series concluded, fans have been eager to watch Cautious Hero Season 2. The sooner, the better. So, is it confirmed? Here is everything we know about it.
Will there be Cautious Hero Season 2?
We can say that the possibility is high for this one. But, first, let’s talk about the source material. For the first season of Cautious Hero, White Fox only adapted two volumes of the light novel. Light Tuchihi has published seven volumes now, with the series still ongoing. So lack of content is not a problem.
The next question is, will White Fox (The Devil Is a Part-Timer!, Akame Ga Kill, Goblin Slayer & Grimoire of Zero) pick it up again? The answer could vary. While there are not so many titles that get a sequel treatment from White Fox, there are some different cases. Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- got a second season recently, and Goblin Slayer got the sequel in the form of an anime movie. The last title that we mentioned will also get the second season, but for now, we don’t know if White Fox is the studio behind it.
Another different case is Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest. White Fox, with studio asread, co-produced the first season. The series will have a second season in 2022, but Studio MOTHER will replace White Fox as its co-producer.
It is not a bad sign. With those in our mind, Cautious Hero Season 2 could happen in the future, even it is not produced by White Fox.
Cautious Hero Season 2 Release Date
So far, there is no official announcement about the release date of Cautious Hero Season 2. There is also no information about the series being canceled.
Like we said in the previous segment, the hope to see the second season is high. Kadokawa, which owns the series license, does not forget Cautious Hero. The characters from the series appear in Isekai Quartet, an anime series that gather many characters from the isekai light novel published under Kadokawa imprint.
We also remind you that the series wrapped up in 2019. Therefore, there are long years to go to make Cautious Hero Season 2 a reality.
Plot of Cautious Hero
The story follows Seiya Ryuuguuin, a hero who is ridiculously cautious of everything. He is summoned by a novice goddess named Ristarte to save Gaeabrande from Demon Lord. Ristarte chooses Seiya because of his incredible stats but fails to see his traits.
With Seiya’s personality, he refuses to enter even the safest areas without perfect preparation and training. This attitude often annoys Ristarte, but Seiya is the hero of this story, and his over-caution is proven to be correct.
If you like Konosuba, you probably will love this series.
