The official Twitter account for the The Devil is a Part-Timer! anime announced that the Dengeki Bunko Winter Festival Online 2021 event livestream will reveal news about the anime’s second season on December 12 at 8:50 p.m. JST. Voice actors Ryota Ohsaka (Sadao Maō/Demon King Satan) and Yōko Hikasa (Emi Yusa/Heroine Emilia) will appear on the livestream.
The main cast is returning for the second season.
Yen Press publishes both the original light novels and Akio Hiiragi‘s manga adaptation, and it describes the story:
After being soundly thrashed by the hero Emilia, the Devil King and his general beat a hasty retreat to a parallel universe… only to land plop in the middle of bustling, modern-day Tokyo! Lacking the magic necessary to return home, the two are forced to assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution. And to make ends meet, Satan finds gainful employment at a nearby fast food joint! With his devilish mind set on working his way up the management food chain, what will become of his thirst for conquest?!
Wagahara launched the light novels with illustrations by 029 in 2011. Hiiragi’s manga adaptation launched in Kadokawa‘s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine in December 2011.
The main novel series inspired a television anime adaptation in 2013. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired, and released the anime on Blu-ray Disc and DVD in 2014.
