‘How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord’ is an action fantasy anime that revolves around Takuma Sakamoto, an avid gamer, who ends up in the universe of his favorite MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game), Cross Reverie. He later finds out that he is summoned there without his consent, so he embarks on a journey to find answers with his strong understanding of the Cross Reverie lore. Based on the light novel of the same name written by Yukiya Murasaki and illustrated by Takahiro Tsurusaki, the unique plot of the anime series can engage anyone’s interest. If you are also intrigued by its narrative or just wish to know where season 2 can be streamed, then you have come to the right place. Here’s everything you need to know.
What is How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord Season 2 About?
Takuma Sakamoto lives a secluded life and spends excessive amounts of time staring at the screen playing online role-playing games. However, one day he suddenly finds himself in the world of Cross Reverie, his favorite MMORPG as the character Demon Lord Diablo. He later finds out that the pantherian Rem and the elf Shera have summoned him into their world to make him a servant. Unfortunately, the spell they use to accomplish that goal backfires, and the duo ends up becoming Takuma’s servants instead.
With his extensive knowledge of the game, Takuma survives dangers in his path while discovering the real reason for which he was summoned into the world of Cross Reverie in the first place. In the season 1 finale, Demon Lord Diablo (Takuma) fights Krebskulm while Shera is busy ensuring Rem recovers using the healing portions given to her by Diablo. Fortunately, Rem regains consciousness while Diablo’s apocalypse abyss spell helps him control Krebskulm, and she turns back to Klem after Shera argues with her. The season ends with viewers scratching their heads as Diablo hardly makes any effort to return to reality.
Does Takuma like the game’s world more than his real-life? Considering he is a hikikomori gamer, that possibility cannot be ruled out. However, season 2 is likely to elaborate more on that since it is crucial to the overall plot. Will we see Takuma, the Demon Lord, return to his world? Or will his misadventures in the MMORPG continue for a long time? With so many unanswered questions, it is impossible not to watch season 2 to find out what happens next.
