Will Dances With The Dragons Season 2 ever be produced by anime studio Seven Arcs Pictures? The fact that the first season was made at all was quite a surprise to Japanese fans of the Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru light novels (SareRyuu for short) because of the grimdark content.

The anime adaptation slipped under the news radar in comparison to other series which often conform to certain tropes related to harems, BL, and whatnot. In comparison, Dances With The Dragons is pretty much the Berserk of light novels. So, will the second season similarly sneak in stealthily on to audiences’ TV sets?

The Dances With The Dragons light novel series by author Labo Asai and illustrator Miyagi was originally published in eight volumes by book publisher Kadakaawa Shoten. Starting in 2008, Asai switched to a new publisher, GAGAGA Bunko, and a new illustrator named Zain. The author rewrote the story and during its present run, it’s currently up to Volume 21.

The anime adaptation was announced in Volume 18 and the first season was originally supposed to air during the 2017 fall anime season. The anime was delayed due to production issues and ended up premiering during the 2018 spring anime season.

Unfortunately, an international English translation of the Dance With The Dragons light novel series has yet to be licensed by any book publisher. More surprisingly, despite the fact that the long-running book series ranks on the Oricon top 20 regularly, there are not any active fan translation projects except for one that translated only three chapters back in 2017.

This article provides everything that is known about Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru Season 2 and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

Dances With The Dragons Blu-Ray Release Date

The Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru Blu-Ray box set is being divided up into four volumes with three episodes each. Volume 1, which released in Japan on June 27, 2018, comes with an original new novel by Asai as part of the bonus materials.

  • Volume 2: July 27, 2018
  • Volume 3: August 29, 2018
  • Volume 4: September 28, 2018

The entire first season is currently available for streaming with English subtitles on Crunchyroll and an English dub on Funimation Now.

Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru Season 2 Release Date

As of the last update, Seven Arcs Pictures or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the Dances With The Dragons Season 2 release date. Nor has the production of a sequel been announced. Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information. In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when, or if, the Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru Season 2 premiere date will occur in the future.

With 21 books to draw upon for source material, there’s plenty of stories to be told for making a second season. The SareRyuu anime adaptation certainly seems like it was originally set up to be a longer two-cour season composed of 24 episodes. Episode 12 was an oddity since it finished off the first season with a flashback, which would be good dividing up two story arcs but instead it was used as an ending.

Unfortunately, the anime sales predictions for this series is pretty low, although Blu-Ray sales are only one factor since streaming revenue is a huge source of income for the growing anime industry. Fans will just have to wait and see if the numbers justify a second season. Stay tuned!
