The success of any anime depends upon how well-crafted its source material adaptation is. Some shows tend to leave some room for their own creation while other tend to jettison any room for such and depend wholly on the original material. Whether or not they were successful in either of enterprises depend upon the pace of the story , that no one would disagree, should remain constant.
The legend of the legendary heroes is one such show where the storyline is somewhat hackneyed and its pretentious effort to look like a complicated anime but turning out to be a haphazard piece of writing cramping up motley of sequences don’t go unnoticed. But some fans liked the anime to the fullest, especially the characters on the show.
Legend Of The Legendary Heroes Season 2 Release Date
The first season of Legend of the legendary heroes debuted on July 2, 2010 and concluded on December 17, 2010, with a special episode released in between the course of the show. It would occur to anyone, after looking at this date that if the makers were really intent on putting out an another season they perhaps would have done it by now. This assumption carries a general consent on the show not renewing for other season on TV Tokyo.
According to some sources, it has even become official. However, we couldn’t get hold on such news. But the overall likeliness remains minuscule. The animation studio Zexcs also have a tendency to not release the sequels of the show it is involved in, perhaps due to its plight of always being low in budgets.
When we assess the popularity aspect then the show if fairly ranted on IMBD and MyAnimeList, giving it the rating of 7.2 and 7.6 respectively. It sold only 1,663 units of its Blu-ray\DVDs.
Source Material Vs Anime
However, the source material seems to be much extolled then the anime itself, which is corroborated by the fact that it was able to sol d over 4,300,000 copies of its light novel till January 28, 2011. Furthermore, the release of its light novel only stopped in 2018 giving it a huge run. Also, the franchise of source material is enormously huge with 64 volumes of both manga and light novels published so far. But, anime are mostly profit-dependent and is the major catalyst in their season’s renewal.
The anime like other plethora of its kind is based upon the light novel series written and illustrated by Takaya Kagami and Saori Tayota respectively. The LV series ran from February 20, 2002 to October 20, 2006 and has total of 11 volumes under its belt.
