The anime follows the story of a teenage girl named Makoto Kowata. Makoto leaves Tokyo to start a journey to a Northern prefecture of Japan where her relatives reside. She makes this decision after realizing that she has the powers of a witch.

After finding out about her powers, Makoto decides to leave her studies to do training to perfect her powers. However, her parents are not supportive of her decision because they do not consider it a good career option financially. Even then, her parents do not want to stop her from learning witch skills.

Flying Witch has remained a popular anime. Although five years have passed since season one ended, fans are still demanding a season 2. Flying Witch was also rated 7.52 by 89,982 fans on MyAnimeList, which is a good enough rating for the anime to get a second season. The anime also received a great response from fans and good reviews from critics.

The source material for the anime, its manga, started being released on August 9, 2012. The pacing of the manga is perfect as the writer has remained very regular in writing the chapter. So far, 10 volumes have been released, and the manga is still ongoing. The first season only covered the first 21 chapters of the manga, which is in the middle of the fourth volume. Hence, there is more than enough source material available for creating a 12-episode season 2.

In 2016 when the first season ended, the studio didn’t have enough source material available to make a season 2. However, five years have passed, and there is now enough source material for it. Since the first season was successful, the creators would be encouraged to create a season 2 to increase the sales of its source material.

Considering all of these factors, it can be concluded that there are good chances for a season 2. Fans only have to be a little more patient because it is likely that a season 2 will be announced soon.
