Crunchyroll announced that it will begin streaming the English dub for the second television anime season based on Yuka Tachibana and Yasuyuki Syuri‘s The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (Seijo no Maryoku wa Bannō Desu) light novel series on Tuesday.
The English cast, which features returning and new members, includes:
The anime’s main cast and most of its main staff members are returning from the first season. Scott MacDonald replaces Tomoyasu Hosoi as art director. Katsuhiro Kawano is now credited as music producer (not to be confused with returning staff member Aira Yūki, who is still credited for “music produce”). Aira Yūki performs the opening theme song “Semisweet Afternoon.” Aina Suzuki performs the ending theme song “Lilac Melody.”
Sei, a 20-year-old office worker, is whisked away to a whole new world. Unfortunately for Sei, the ritual that summoned her—meant to produce a “Saint” who would banish the dark magic—brought two people over instead of one. And everyone prefers the second girl over Sei?! But this is just fine by Sei, who leaves the royal palace to set up shop making potions and cosmetics with her newfound magic. Business is booming, and this might not be such a bad life, after all…as long as her supposed Sainthood doesn’t come back to haunt her.
Tachibana launched the novels on the “Shōsetsuka ni Narou” website in 2016. Kadokawa published the first volume in print in February 2017, with illustrations by Yasuyuki Syuri. Fujiazuki‘s manga adaptation launched on Comic Walker as part of Kadokawa‘s “Flos Comic” website in July 2017.
