So, without taking much of your time, here is everything you need to know about the season.
Isekai Yokkuyoku is an original fantasy novel series written by Liz Takayama. The text first came out in the year 2015. Later in 2016, the light novel came out under the same banner. Studio Diomedéa then green-lit the anime project in 2021.
Parallel World Pharmacy Season 2: Renewal Status
Most anime seasons come to an end either with an update on the renewal of the new one. However, this was not the case with Parallel World Pharmacy Season 2. The last episode of the series neither gave the statement “to be continued” nor any hints of the new season. The story of Season 1 was also complete in itself. Thus, all things are pointing towards an end. As of the time of writing, the final season has not been renewed by Studio Diomedéa. But there is no need to fret as the season will come out.
Will There Be A New Season?
The first run of Isekai Yokkyoku was nothing short of a fiesta. From being one of the least anticipated shows of the Summer Slate, this show went on to top many charts. And the same is true for the official rating numbers that the show has been getting. On IMDb, the show gets a 7-star rating. The audience score on MyAnimeList for Parallel World Pharmacy is even better. The series is rated 7.4 stars on the platform.
All of this only indicates that there would not be many hindrances in the release of Parallel World Pharmacy Season 2. Thus, the only factor creating an obstacle would be the availability of the source material. Keep reading further to get information on that as well.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Both the manga and light novel are currently ongoing on separate platforms. But anime is the direct adaptation of the manga. So far, 46 chapters of the text have come out. And according to some fans on Reddit, the first season ended up using the first 38 chapters of the text. However, the story is vastly spread into many arcs. As of the time of writing, there is certainly a lack of content.
But until the renewal, the manga is expected to cover as many chapters as required for the storyboard. This only means that there would be a delay in the process. And for the fans who cannot wait to know the next part of the story, they can start reading the text from Chapter 39.
Parallel World Pharmacy Season 2: What Will Happen Next?
Many fans believed that the last act of the first season was rushed. The title of the final episode was “Those He Could Not Save.” The season wrapped up with an arc that was personal in many ways. Camus, a man from the rival territory, managed to get his hands on a deadly virus. Soon enough, this was given the name of biological war. As the events of the same unfolded, the catastrophe lasted a good season.
However, the final episode took only a few minutes to bring a cure to the disease. Considering the conditions that the entire world has undergone, showing an epidemic in such a way was certainly rushed. Parallel World Pharmacy Season 2 will now have to do a lot of damage control before taking up the next act of the story. This one will show some of the best cases that Pharma manages to resolve with the PWP. But before all this, fans will be able to see the aftermath of the epidemic that had befallen the kingdom.
Parallel World Pharmacy Season 2: Release Date
