The finale of the Shangri-La Frontier anime aired over the weekend, and that won’t be the last we see of the series. According to an announcement after the episode, Shangri-La Frontier season 2 is officially in the works, serving up another continuous two-cour season starting in October 2024.

The second season was also confirmed to stream on Crunchyroll, and you can see the announcement trailer and celebratory visual below.

A pair of new cast members were also revealed, including Joji Nakata as Kyoju and Hiromu Mineta as Aramis. You can check out their respective visuals below.

The Shangri-La Frontier anime’s first season came from C2C, with Toshiyuki Kubooka of Wandering Witch – The Journey of Elaina helming the project as director. The person in charge of writing the series scripts as well as supervising them is Kazuyuki Fudeyasu, who is known for working on Black Clover, Dropkick on My Devil!, and Record of Ragnarok. Credit for composing the music goes to monaca.

The series started out as a web novel by Katarina. Since then it has also received a manga adaptation by Ryōsuke Fuji, which Kodansha publishes in English. Kodansha gave this description of its plot:

Second year high school student Rakurō Hizutome is interested in one thing only: finding “shitty games” and beating the crap out of them. His gaming skills are second to none, and no game is too bad for him to enjoy. So when he’s introduced to the new VR game Shangri-La Frontier, he does what he does best—min-maxes and skips the prologue to jump straight into the action. But can even an expert gamer like Rakurō discover all the secrets that Shangri-La Frontier hides…?
