Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest Season 2 Gets New Trailer


The hotly anticipated second season of the Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest anime is right around the corner on January 13, and a new trailer recently arrived to show off more of the continuing adaptation.

Akira Iwanaga (Tegami Machi Letter Bee) is taking over as director for season two, with other staff members returning from the first, including Shoichi Sato on series composition, Chika Kojima on character designs, and Ryo Takahashi on music. Check out the trailer below, which features a preview of MindaRyn’s theme song, “Daylight.”

J-Novel Club publishes the original light novels—written by Ryo Shirakome and illustrated by Takayaki—digitally, with Seven Seas Entertainment handling the print version. Here’s how they describe it:

Seventeen year old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They’re treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku’s wet dream quickly turns into Hajime’s nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime’s job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith’s level of strength?

Funimation will simulcast the new season shortly after each episode airs in Japan.
