Ishura Season 2: Sequel Renewed After Season 1 Finale; All We Know So Far

Ishura season 2 has been officially confirmed after the 12th and final episode of the first season. The staff released a special teaser video and visual featuring a key character for the second season. While no additional information was revealed, more news is expected in the coming weeks and months.

With the popularity of the Winter 2024 anime series, many speculate that production for the second season has been ongoing for some time, suggesting a return by the end of this year to kick off the Winter 2025 anime season. Ishura season 2 is expected to stream exclusively on Disney+ worldwide and Hulu in the United States, as the entire first season did.

A brief about Ishura

Ishura is a Japanese light novel series written by Keiso. It originated on the novel posting websites Kakuyomu and Shōsetsuka ni Narō, before being acquired by ASCII Media Works, who published the series with illustrations by Kureta under their Dengeki no Shin Bungei imprint. As of February 2024, nine volumes have been released.

A manga adaptation with illustrations by Meguri began serialization in Kodansha’s Monthly Shōnen Magazine in March 2021. As of December 2023, its chapters have been collected into three tankōbon volumes.

The story starts with the death of the demon king. However, the host of Shuras, demi-god-like people who are capable of felling him, remain and are now effectively free to do whatever they want, with some becoming conquerors while others wander, indifferent to the world around them. Thus, with the identity of the one who slew the demon king being a mystery, these champions now spark conflicts among themselves all to determine who is the mightiest and attain the title of True Hero.

An anime television series adaptation was announced on February 12, 2023. It was produced by Passione and directed by Yuki Ogawa, with chief direction by Takeo Takahashi, assistant direction by Takuya Asaoka, Fujiaki Asari, Takahiro Majima and Hironori Aoyagi, scripts written by Kenta Ihara, characters designed by Yoko Kikuchi and Yuka Takashina, music composed by Masahiro Tokuda, and CG animation produced by Sanzigen.

The series aired from January 3 to March 20, 2024, on Tokyo MX and other networks. The opening theme song is Shura ni Otoshite by Sajou no Hana, while the ending theme song is Hakka by Konomi Suzuki. The series is streaming on Disney+ worldwide, on Star+ in Latin America, and on Hulu in United States.
