By the Grace of the Gods is based on a Japanese light novel series written by Roy and illustrated by Ririnra. It had first premiered online in January 2014, which was in a user-generated novel form which was published by the website named Shōsetsuka ni Narō. The series was later acquired by Hobby Japan, which had published ten volumes since September 2017 under their HJ Novels imprint. Not only that a manga adaptation with the art by Ranran had been serialized online via Square Enix’s Manga UP! website since November 2017 and has been collected in six tankōbon volumes. It has had a very growing and popular fan base for all these years. But it has been a long time since we heard any news or anything related to the anime series which was very agonizing and disheartening for all you fans. So let me be the bearer of good news… By the Grace of the Gods will be renewing for a brand new season. It is time for celebration dear fans.
So let us have a quick look back at what exactly happened in the first season of By the Grace of the Gods. Ryouma Takebayashi is a child who lives in a place that is beyond the reach of human beings deep inside the woods. We all witnessed his strange hobby of collecting and keeping various kinds of slime as his pets, which when we think is both absurd and fun at the same time. But the unusual part was that his appearance is mature compared to his age. As his previous life was filled with difficulties and hardships the three gods had blessed him with a second chance with a single goal which was for him to enjoy all the wonders of life and live it to the fullest. But there has to be a twist, after all which series doesn’t?
So season 1 began with Selma preparing the food for the kids as Callum closes the store. And Eliaria sitting with a disappointed look as she didn’t bond with Lemur birds so, in the meantime while Selma is cooking she starts playing her violin which helped her to bond with the lemur birds which inspires Ryoma and he also begins to play his guitar to bond with the Lemur birds which results in them both to mark their friendship by exchanging gifts. We saw Eliaria offer her mother’s necklace to him while he gives her his 2 slimes. Later as they are about to part ways they promise each other that they will meet each other after a duration of 3 years but little did either of them know what exactly will happen in these 3 years. So it is expected that in Season 2 we will witness Ryoma sharpening his magic skills on the earth and then meeting new people who will turn his life around and eventually lead him to live a different life than the one he was already living in.
I know it is very exciting for everyone but as there is no official announcement about this renewal but the way they ended season 1 it is predicted that there will be a new season of By the Grace of the Gods and it is most likely to air in the late 2021 or early 2022.so let’s keep our fingers crossed to get this brand new season of By the Grace of the Gods.
