Fans on Reddit couldn’t wait and started discussions to get any news related to a second season. Fans believe that having a second season would be a great addition to the story. Moreover, they are optimistic that a second season will be released soon because the first season was successful, and there hasn’t been much time since the first season ended anyways, so it’s natural for them to take some time to announce it.
On the other hand, these tweets posted by fans on Twitter perfectly show the fans’ sentiments regarding a second season.
Will There Be Cautious Hero Season 2?
Cautious Hero has been one of the most popular anime of 2019. It has continued to be a popular anime because of its loyal fanbase spread worldwide. One of the reasons is that the anime is streaming on the largest online streaming platform, Netflix. Cautious Hero has a rating of 7.51 on myanimelist, which fans have a good enough rating for a show to have a second season.
The first season followed the whole story of the manga. It didn’t skip any arc or plot details either. The studio did a tremendous job providing depth to the required characters; hence, the anime was carried out perfectly and received excellent reviews. The good news is, the first season only covered two books of the light novel, and a total of seven books have been published, and it is still ongoing. All of this means there is enough source material even to produce two seasons. Moreover, this means the creators have a motive to make a second season because it would help boost the sales of the source material.
However, the first season did not sell very well. Only Blu- Ray 700 copies sold per volume, and the Light Novel sales were just 7,000 copies per volume.
But the overall conclusion is that the chances of Cautious Hero Season 2 are still very high. Although DVD sales weren’t impressive, the anime gained a lot of popularity and was loved by viewers on Netflix too.
So, Season 2 will most probably be coming out soon.

In exchange for sacrificing his life to killing the Demon Lord, Seiya is resurrected before again resurrected before he’s sent to a new world to save with Ristarte. After it is revealed that Ristarte and Seiya were lovers in a previous life, they are sent to Ixphoria, a world they could not save many years ago.
However, according to the available source material, which is expected to be used for the next season, the story will be different this time. Since Ristarte and Seiya could not save Ixphoria in their previous lives, that world is hazardous and ranked SS class.
Moreover, Seiya becomes re-classed as a flute-playing bard. She now has kind of new abilities in a completely new and more dangerous world. Ristarte and Seiya’s journey to save Ixphoria would be nothing like the world season. But with some caution, their goals can be achieved.
