Well, that was a hell of a wait. I remember the way I found out about this show… It was when you could use Google images to find the source of gifs

One thing that interested me about the preview for s2 is the slight change in art style. It’s subtle but it has more modern aesthetics to the character designs.

This is awesome news!

I wonder just how much the second season is going to adapt, especially since the novels have ended.
:thinking::thinking::thinking:

Major spoiler!!!

And if it adapts the ending, which girl Maou goes with. IIRC, so many people were upset that Maou chose Chiyo in the novels. Wonder if that backlash will have them change the ending.
:thinking::thinking::thinking:

So, like Yuuna and the Haunted Hot springs, everyone wanted the Harem ending? Even though it’s kind of obvious that Maou likes you-know-who?

Wait. You know I like Yami??? It’s that obvious???

(Yes. I redid the joke. Thought it was funnier this way.)

I think it’s moreso that the upset people were upset because the girl they liked didn’t get chosen, not necessarily because it wasn’t the harem ending.
