We agree that the first season of Re:Zero did not have a logical ending. So, there must be a sequel to it to continue the story. Yes, it does exist. For the people who had the opportunity to read the light novel series, can easily see that there is enough of source material the studio can use for a season 2 of Re:Zero.
But why is White Fox remaining silent about the release date of the second season of the anime? Maybe, you may have read or heard spoilers from various articles. However, there still has not been any official confirmation concerning the release date of Re:Zero Season 2.
Re:Zero, Starting Life in Another World Season 2 has been announced. This was not a surprise since there is a huge amount of source material for the studio to work on for the sequel. The web novel is so vast that it has been split into six major arcs. The first volume of the anime had only adapted the first 9 volumes of the light novel.
Currently, there are 19 in total, and the last arc is very long compared to the others. Allow me to put this into perspective. The first three arcs of the light novel series required only 155 chapters, whereas the last arc alone needed 130 chapters. So it is pretty clear that there isn’t any issue of shortage of source material.
