Based on the Japanese light novel series of the same name illustrated by Llo and written by Yuu Tanaka, Reincarnated as a Sword or Tensei shitara Ken deshita is an isekai fantasy anime. The series revolves around an unnamed man who dies in the modern world and is reincarnated as a sword. With the help of his telekinesis powers, he explores the new world and unlocks many abilities. But his life changes forever when he encounters a black cat girl named Fran, who eventually becomes his keeper. Desperate to advance herself and fulfill her parents’ dream, Fran becomes close friends with her magic sword and names it Shishou. The two then explore the world and decide that it would be best if Fran got an adventurer’s permit that would allow them to visit more remote places.
This eventually works in their favor, and Fran and Shishou befriend Alessa’s guild master and other adventurers from whom they can learn much. The captivating story of a young and ambitious Black Cat girl who keeps her dream alive despite persecution and oppression has found fans worldwide. The anime was praised by critics for its action-packed fight scenes and stunning animation. So it’s not surprising that after the conclusion of Season 1, people are now excited to see what happens next. If you are also curious about it, then we have the right thing for you.
Reincarnated as a Sword Season 2 Release Date
‘Tensei shitara Ken deshita’ or ‘Reincarnated as a Sword’ Season 1 was released on October 12, 2022 (October 5, 2022, in Japan) and ended a few weeks later on December 21, 2022 (December 14, 2022, domestic) . The anime consists of twelve episodes, each lasting approximately twenty-three minutes.
Directed by Shinji Ishihira, the anime stars Ai Kakuma as Fran, Shinichiro Miki as Shishou, Rumi Ookubo as Nell, Ami Koshimizu as Amanda, Shinpachi Tsuji as Gallus, and many others. Regarding the extension of the series, we have good news for the fans. Shortly after the season 1 finale premiered, Reincarnated as a Sword was greenlit for another episode. The news of the renewal of the series was officially announced on Twitter, and NBC Universal also uploaded a short clip to their YouTube channel to let fans know.
This probably wasn’t surprising news given that rumors have been swirling around the internet since last week that the show would be greenlit for another season. Sugoi LITE, who is a reliable anime news leaker, informed his followers on Twitter on December 14, 2022 that there will be another installment of the Isekai series. Interestingly, the creators aren’t short on source material either, so fans won’t necessarily have a long wait ahead of them.

Studio C2C is currently busy producing ‘Tsukimichi Moonlit Fantasy’ Season 2, ‘Shangri-La Frontier’ and ‘Handyman Saitou in Another World’, all of which will most likely be released in 2023. Assuming the studio then turns to the Isekai series, Tensei shitara Ken deshita or Reincarnated as a Sword Season 2 will come out sometime in mid-2024.
Reincarnated as a Sword Season 2 Plot: What could it be about?
In the season 1 finale, Fran and her fellow adventurers complete their investigation of the spider monster nest and return to Alessa. After receiving new armor from Gallus and getting permission from Klimt to visit the dungeon near the village of Ulmutt, Fran says goodbye to her new friends, including Amanda. Then it turns out that Amanda actually knew Fran’s parents, Kinan and Flamia.
Meanwhile, Furion reports to Klimt on the investigation that has established beyond doubt that August Allasand worked with Reidos in the north to give the spiders in the dungeon a potion that would help them evolve. Also, Klimt listens to the guardian spirit Tarua’s opinion of Fran and concludes that he was unnecessarily worried that she was a spy.
In Season 2, Fran meets the self-proclaimed supreme necromancer named Jean du Vix. She learns that he is actually a B-level adventurer who knows Amanda and has worked with her on a number of occasions. After learning that Fran is on her way to the dungeon near the Ulmutt village, Jean du Vix will likely join Fran and they will embark on their future missions together.
