Beast Tamer Season 2, is it announced already?
Over the years, the fantasy genre has come a long way since its inception in terms of characters and plotlines. Modern technology and artistic rendition have served up some of the best fantasy anime series in recent times.
Every year multiple fantasy-based anime series are released, which try to bring the viewers into a different world filled with magical adventures.
The year 2022 is no different as the anime adaption of Suzu Miyama s’ light novel Beast Tamer tried to capture the viewer s’ interest, imagination, and inquisition.
Beast Tamer is set in a world where unique species of beasts roam around, filled with monstrous strength and magical abilities considered to be at the top of the power chain.
While the beasts harbor immense brawn, they are coveted by humans who seek to capture them as a result, the beast population is on the brink of extinction.
The story follows a beast tamer named Rein Shroud, who can call upon various animals and use their abilities for surveying and traveling. He joins a Hero s’ party, which is led by the evil Arios Orlando but gets cruelly kicked out due to being worthlessness to the group and its cause.
Despite being banished from the part, Rein decides to become an adventurer and sets forth to take the registration test, which involves killing ten goblins.
During the test, he hears a scream from the forest and rushes in to check on the situation but is confronted by a killer tiger who has cornered a cat-eared girl.
Armed with only a knife, Rein tries to attack the beast but fails to penetrate its skin. With no weapons and beasts left to call upon, Rein prepares to accept his fate with the satisfaction of acting as a distraction for the girl to escape.
As the Killer tiger proceeds to attack Rein, the cat-eared girl, with all her remaining strength, slays the beast with one kick. The cat-eared girl is revealed to be Kanade, a member of the strongest and rarest race, the Cat tribe.
Impressed by Rein s’ selfless act, she asks to form a contract with him, and he obliges her to make her his familiar.
The once-expelled beast tamer is now in contract with the strongest race in existence as he sets out on his journey as an adventurer.

Before considering a series for renewal, production studios consider many financial and consumer metrics such as streaming numbers, international revenue, and source material.
Of course, the feedback is another aspect as if the first season wasn’t successful from a creative standpoint, most production studios don’t renew for a second season.
Beast Tamer season one was received with a mixed reception as despite having likable characters, fans noticed the same old clichés and tropes circumventing the main character. Furthermore, Studio EMT Squared isn’t exactly known for producing sequels, with only Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear being renewed since Rainy Cocoa in Hawaii in 2016.
On a positive note, the first season will likely end on volume 2 of the light novel, meaning more than four volumes will be available for Beast Tamer season 2 as source material.
Currently, seven episodes have completed airing, leaving six episodes for the series to make a mark and demand renewal.
If season one ends on high, then, in that case, we can expect the Beast Tamer Season 2 trailer and Beast Tamer Season 2 release date in late 2022.
