An interview with Seiji Kishi, Makoto Uezu, and Takahiro, the director, series composer and creator of the Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru anime respectively, in the most recent issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine has revealed that there are plans for the future development of the Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru anime, where a second season may be very likely.
The recent March issue of Dengeki G’s Magazine had a special bonus chapter for Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru set after the events of the anime and light novel series, written by the series creator Takahiro himself and illustrated by BunBun. The chapter itself is titled Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha De Aru: Sonogo no Sonoko (Sonoko After). The issue also had an interview with Takahiro, as well as Seiji Kishi and Makoto Uezu, the director and series composer of the anime adaptation.
In the interview, Kishi mentioned how support of the anime has been tremendous, with the sales and popularity of the series being surprisingly high – ranking 1st for the season, and that further support of the series can lead to the future development of the series. There are currently plans for this, which also include pushing the story into new unexplored directions. This is also somewhat evident with the new bonus chapter, with fans earlier demanding a further conclusion to the series. Regardless, if there was more continued support of the series the second season of the anime will be made.
Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru is an anime series that aired in the Fall/Autumn 2014 anime season that is part of the greater Takahiro IV Project, which includes 4 projects produced and written by Takahiro. The first project was the Visual Novel Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu, the second was an anime adaptation of Takahiro’s Akame ga Kill! manga, the third project is a light novel series Washio Sumi wa Yuusha de Aru. The anime itself is set after the events of Washio Sumi wa Yuusha de Aru, which was published in Dengeki G’s magazine in 2014 for a total of one volume. The anime aired for a toal of 12 episodes and was produced by Studio Gokumi (Kiniro Mosaic, A-Channel) and directed by Seiji Kishi (Persona 4 The Animation, Angel Beats!). There is also a web manga adaptation of the series illustrated by kotamaru.
Here is a synopsis of the anime from Haruhichan:
The story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yuuna Yuuki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she’s also a member of the “Hero Club,” where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called “Vertex.”
The Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru anime continues to be very popular in Japan with high sales. Continued support from fans of the series will without a doubt have a second season of the anime in the near future.
