A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special Story
A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special takes us to a world that is on the brink of destruction after a disastrous war against the Shadow World. When all hope seems lost, a skilled magician named Desir Arman finds himself to be taken back in time to the days when he was studying in the Academy.
With the chance to redo his life, he decides to accumulate more power and allies with the objective of being prepared for the Shadow World this time while saving mankind.
A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special Source Material
The anime of A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special is based on the Manhwa of the same name. The Manhwa is ongoing and has over 250+ chapters currently. Hence, the series has potentially multiple seasons worth of content even after the first season.
In this, the Holy Empire worshipped the goddess Artemis but was swallowed up by a shadow world disaster. Though the Holy Nation was destroyed, their religion endured.
Season 1 episode 12 covers 50 chapter so season 2 will cover Holy Empire of Artemis Arc. During this arc, the Church of Artemis collected high taxes and took many as sacrifices, causing people to flee to the city of Evernatten. This could form the basis of a compelling second season of the anime.
A Returner’s Magic Should Be Special Season 2 Plot
