The official twitter handle of the show confirmed that season two and three are already in pre-production.

Why has the series created such a buzz?

This show excels in the fantasy setting. It’s both fun, lighthearted and cheery, as well as dark, brooding and intense after Berserk, been searching for a replacement fantasy anime series for the past ten years.

Without going into detail, the show is not the typical “Isekai,” or at least it has much more depth than they seem to, and hero’s are not always welcomed equally.

It’s not perfect, and some of the sub-plots don’t resolve in a way I find satisfying, however in a way that makes me like it more, because I can understand how that outcome was reached. Watchers need to know that the show flirts with or straight out works in story points some could find surprising or offensive, however, I’d suggest muscling through because it’s well done and worth the watch.

The animation is of a high quality, and the characters are suitably distinctive. Overall the show is one to recommend this to fans of the genre. Although, I’d caution that specific themes may bother some viewers.
