How often do we come across anime portraying vendetta? Redo of Healer or ‘Kaifuki Jutushi no Yarinaoshi’ in Japanese deals with a boy who embarks upon the journey to get his revenge, for all the exploitation he has been through in his life.
Originally, the show is an adaptation of the Japanese light novel series of the same name written and illustrated by Rui Tsukiyo and Shiokonbu respectively. TNK studio were behind the production of the anime which by the way has over the top anime under its belt. The anime is a recent made where the first episode aired on January 13, 2021 and concluded on March 31, 2021.
Along with the light novel, the anime also saw as its source material, a manga written by the same author as the light novel but illustrated by Sojen Haga and originally commenced on October 24, 2017. It is currently running with 8 volumes already released. Will there be a season 2 of Redo of Healer?
Unfortunately, the makers have not officially announced the renewal prospects of the show. Does that mean there will be no season 2?
Redo of Healer Season 2 Release Date
Well, the answer to this depends on a few factors which we will be considering before we reach any conclusion.
The availability of source material
The source material has been exhausted in the first season only up to volume 3 of the 9 light volume series. Some claim it till 4, but on evaluation, it turns out that the 4th volume is just slightly touched upon by season 1 so, technically it is adapted till the first few chapters of the 4th volume which gives negligible fodder to the show. To conclude, we have 6 more volumes that can be adapted into action and thrill-packed storylines for the next season.
Popularity is demanded by the exigencies of the season renewal of a particular anime. Categorically speaking, the anime is the means through which source material gets promoted or you can say the more enticing the anime the more it will prompt people to buy its merchandise.
So, it becomes necessary to reflect upon the achievements of the anime. As for Redo of Healer, it has an anime popularity score of 83 percent while also maintaining a good volume of Google searches. These are really staggering numbers for an anime that is just in its novel days. But there is another side to this popularity spectrum, mostly in the form of Twitter followers of the show. It amounts to
20.6 k, which is not enough to get to the mark of a community as extensive as Naruto, One piece etc. But again, for the sake of optimism, we can assert that most of its viewing demographic may not be active on Twitter.
There are approximately 1 million copies in circulation which can come out as a strong indication towards the renewal of the second season.
Blu-Ray /DVD sales
Blu- Ray DVD sales may have become obsolete in the times when every content streaming enterprise mooches off its gains from the internet but in Japan, they are still relevant and acts as an important parameter to appraise the popularity of a show. The anime has crossed the 3000 marks in March alone which if seen relatively is still less compared to other anime like SK8 the infinity. Despite being of the same release date as Redo of Healer it managed to cross the 8 thousand mark which is quite intimidating.
Moreover, for an anime to be considered fit for a season renewal it must have sold more than 4000 copies of disc sales.
Will There Ever Be Redo of Healer Season 2?
On the basis of the aforementioned factors, we can finally conclude that it is probable that the makers would have season 2 for the season on their cards. If the recurrence is announced by the end of this year then we could all witness season 2 in the fall of 2022 or the start of 2023 because the production of an anime takes an approximate time of 1 to 1.5 years. Although, the date suggested remains mere speculation.
