Therefore, he is enjoying a peaceful daily life with his friends at the Onmyo branch school. One day, his childhood friend Tsuchimikado Natsume, the heir to the head family, suddenly appears.
Is Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Renewed or Canceled?
For now, Tokyo Ravens has not been renewed for Season 2. There are two books left for the anime’s narrative, which clearly isn’t enough for an entire new season.
In this instance, it seems that the anime was created only to promote light novels. This means that the chances of getting a second season now depend only on the sales of the light novel series.
For the anime, the likelihood of a sequel depends on a number of factors such as the source material, the popularity of the previous season, and the demand for the sequel.
When will Tokyo Ravens Season 2 Release?
There is no confirmed release date for Tokyo Ravens Season 2. If it is renewed this year for 2nd season, fans can expect to release it in 2022 or 2023.
What to Expect from the Plot of Tokyo Ravens Season 2?
The story of Tokyo Ravens centers around Tsuchimikado Harutora, a member of the prestigious Onmoji family. However, he could not be born with any spiritual power that the family might have inherited.
Therefore, his life becomes meaningless, and spends his time with his friends at the Onmyo branch school. Yet, one day, as Natsume suddenly appears, as his childhood friend and heir to the Tsuchimikado family, Harutora’s destiny is changed forever.

The last episode of Tokyo Ravens was a roller-coaster ride for many viewers. The installment did not even complete the story of the show. Hence, the upcoming sequel will probably pick up where its predecessor left off.
It will likely begin with volume 10 of the light novel series and adapt the remaining seven volumes. Since the LN series is yet to end,
Eight Bit or any other studio producing the sequel will have to give it a proper ending. However, this also means that Tokyo Ravens Season 2 will be the last season of the anime so far.
Which Characters are returning for the Cast of Tokyo Ravens Season 2?
- Harutora: Kaito Ishikawa
- Natsume: Kana Hanazawa
- Touji: Ryohei Kimura
- Suzuka: Ayane Sakura
- Kyoko: Eri Kitamura
- Tenma: Hiro Shimono
How many volumes do Tokyo Ravens have?
In Japan, 16 light novel editions of Tokyo Ravens have been published. In addition to the light novels, Tokyo Ravens has six manga series. Eight books were released in the first Tokyo Ravens manga series.
However, it was simply a retelling of the original plot in the manga genre, and it ended in 2017. The remaining manga adaptations are brief spin-off series.
In 2017 and 2018, only one new volume per year was released in Japan. No new volumes were released in 2019 or 2020 and as of now, there is no word on whether Volume 17 will release in 2021.
Tokyo Ravens Review: Anime Fans are not Impressed!
Tokyo Ravens gets off to a pretty rocky start, launching into ugly love-triangle territory between Harutora, the outwardly fearless and ultra-feminine Natsume, and Harutora’s cruel, tomboyish childish friend Hokuto.
These first few episodes are pretty cringe-inducing: the addition of two girls trying to convince Harutora to become a mage, and a lot of crying on Hokuto’s part.
I’d say this triangle has a….interesting twist, later, but it makes for a tough sell at the start, considering how annoying Hokuto is, and I’m definitely about to leave the show.
When we move to Onimo Academy after four episodes, things get a little more interesting, at which point it almost feels like a different show: the harem-y element is buttoned down there, and Hokuto and Suzuka mostly out of the picture.

And with Natsume living outwardly as a boy we settle into the show proper. And it’s not a particularly inspiring show, nor something I haven’t seen anywhere else, but I didn’t dislike it at all. The Tokyo Ravens were undoubtedly a delight to watch.
It had such a nostalgic feeling to it and exceeded all my expectations of going into it. The plot twists were well laid out and shocking at times, and the array of humor, drama and action were blended well to make a very enjoyable show.
The season failed to make a decent amount of profit, making the committee unlikely to invest once more in the production. Plus, the popularity of the franchise wasn’t enough, so it’s safe to conclude that Tokyo Ravens Season 2 may never get the green light.
