The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady Season 2 is the anticipated sequel of the popular yuri-isekai anime which recently ended and fans are already up with the demands for a second season.
So here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady Season 2 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.
The Japanese anime “The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady(Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei)” also known as Tenten Kakumei in short is an adaptation of the light novel series written by Piero Karasu and illustrated by Yuri Kisaragi.
The story follows Anisphia, the first princess of the Kingdom of Palettia and Euphyllia, the ex-fiance of Anisphia’s younger brother, Algard, who was stripped of her title as the kingdom’s next monarch. Anisphia plans to help Euphyllia regain her good name.
Studio Diomedea animated the anime’s first season, officially running for 12 episodes from January 4, 2023, to March 22, 2023, on various local networks in Japan.
Crunchyroll streamed the anime outside of Japan with both sub and dub, and it received a positive reception from viewers and critics alike. Many praised it for its fresh take on the oversaturated isekai genre with a good balance of action, romance, emotions and meaningful character development.
As of March 2023, Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet. However, if a new season is confirmed, it will likely air sometime in late -2025 or early-2026.
This is cause the first season premiered from January 2023 to March 2023 and it typically takes around 1-2 years to produce a new season.
As of now, no official announcements have been made yet, hence the readers need to keep in mind that these are just speculations.
But, keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as something official is announced. We can expect the announcement in the next few months.
Based on the following information, here is the countdown to the premiere of Tensei Oujo to Tensai Reijou no Mahou Kakumei’s second season.
As of writing, Studio Diomedéa, the publisher Fujimi Shobo, or any other member of the production committee member has not officially renewed the anime for a second season.
A lot of anime manage to get a new season right after the season finale but unfortunately, Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady wasn’t one of them.
Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal and it is possible to speculate whether an anime will get a new season or not by carefully evaluating these three factors:
I have used the same method for Eminence in Shadow, Takagi-san and World Trigger and so far it has proven to work.
So now we will examine these factors to see if Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady anime will get a sequel or not.
Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady anime is based on the light novel series written by Piero Karasu with illustrations drawn by Yuri Kisaragi.
It first started publication on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō (Let’s Become Novelist) in February 2019.
It was later acquired by Fujimi Shobo who published the series in physical form with illustrations.
The first volume in the novel series was released on January 18, 2020, and the latest issue came out on January 20, 2023.
A total of six volumes have been released so far, and the light novel is still ongoing.
The first season of the anime adapted the first 3 volumes out of 6 volumes leaving behind 3 volumes of content which is more than enough material to create not only one but two anime seasons.
Conclusion: Currently, there are 3 volumes of source material available to adapt, which is good news since the series has more than enough material for Studio Diomedéa to start working on a new season right away.
Moreover, the series is still ongoing with a consistent release of new volumes, so that’s a big plus for getting a sequel.
Before we proceed, it’s important to understand that most of the anime we watch today are created primarily to promote and boost the sales of its source material (in this case light novel).
Sales from the light novel and related merchandise are the main source of income for the producers, while revenue from advertising fees, online streaming licensing, and Blu-ray sales are considered secondary
Typically, a 12-episode anime television series costs around $3,000,000 to produce.
Therefore, an anime has to make back this much money through merchandise sales and licensing fees to ensure a new season from the producers.
As of February 2022, Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady had reached a circulation count of 180k million copies across the light novel, manga and digital downloads.
However, this count is from before the anime aired and has not been updated for 13 months now and doesn’t account for the boost it had received from the anime adaptation.
Anime adaptations have been known to have a significant impact on the sales and popularity of their source material. This was demonstrated by the success of “How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom,” which saw a near-doubling of its sales within six months of its anime premiere and Eminence in Shadow and Isekai Ojisan saw a similar increment.
Conclusion: typically, a light novel with 500,000 to 1,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so the series isn’t performing well in that regard.
However, as we mentioned, the above count hasn’t been updated for over a year now during which two new volumes were released and does not include the boost in sales that the series received from the anime adaptation so there is a chance that the count might have crossed 500k circulation count by now.
While Blu-rays and DVDs are no longer key players in determining anime success as they used to be back in the 2010s, they are still a great tool to understand a show’s popularity among the general Japanese audience. In general, if an anime’s disc sales are over 3,000, a second season would be promising.
As for Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady, the situation doesn’t look very promising.
The sales numbers for the first Blu-ray/DVD volume of the anime series were so low that it failed to even make it to Oricon’s weekly sales ranking which means it couldn’t even manage to sell more than 200 copies.
However, it’s important to note that Blu-ray sales are no longer the only measure of a show’s success, as streaming fees have become a more significant factor in the industry.
Conclusion: Based on the sales numbers, it appears that Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady anime failed to make a profit for its producers through its home video release, which is not a promising sign for the show’s future.
However, it is possible that the show managed to recoup its production costs through licensing fees and merchandise sales, so there may still be hope for its continuation.
The light novel “Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady” has become increasingly popular among fans of yuri-themed stories, and its popularity has surged even further in Western circles following the release of the anime adaptation.
The anime’s debut in Japan was highly anticipated, and it quickly became one of the most-watched shows of the Spring 2022 season. It ranked top on several streaming websites, including the D-Anime Store and AbemaTV and was one of the most-talked shows on the internet.
On NicoVideo, Japan’s largest hosting site which is their version of YouTube, the premiere episode received over 244k views and 16k comments which is almost as much as The Executioner and Her Way of Life, another yuri-isekai anime got last year.
The debut run of Tensei Ojo to Tensai Reijō no Maho Kakumei anime received a positive reception from fans in the west, with many viewers and critics praising it for being even better than the source material in some aspects.
The series has garnered positive reviews from viewers around the world, earning a solid score of 7.7 on MyAnimeList and ranking at #1631 in popularity, with more than 121k members in its MAL group.
It has also received an amazing score of 7.2/10 on IMDb and a 77% approval rating on AniList. This shows that the show’s popularity is very high even though it is a young series.
In conclusion, the series gained a significant following in both Japan and the West and generated a ton of revenue from merchandise sales, indicating that it has a strong and loyal fanbase.
With enough source material and the potential to make even more sales, it is inevitable that Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady Season 2 will be announced soon. It is no longer a question of if it will get a new season, but when it will get a new season.
Since the first season covered till volume 3, the next season of Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady will begin with adapting volume 4.
Yen Press describes the plot of volume 4 as such:
After receiving the right to succession, Euphyllia is facing a future where she becomes ruler, while Anisphia is released from her obligations and continues her research. How will this affect the future of Palettia—and Anis and Euphie’s blossoming relationship?
There is no trailer for The Executioner and Her Way of Life Season 2 available yet to watch, but we will update this page if one gets released on their official youtube channel.
On the other hand, here’s a trailer for the first season, which you should watch to recall how memorable the previous one was.
In summary, there is a good chance that The Magical Revolution of the Reincarnated Princess and the Genius Young Lady Season 2 will happen. If that is the case, we should hear some news about it this year. But don’t expect the release date for the second season to be before 2023 since it takes time for a new season to be animated.
I will update the article next month if something has changed. In the meantime so you can check the same analysis I have done for other series:
