Will Myriad Colors Phantom World have a season 2

Musaigen no Fantomu Warudo, better known as Myriad Colors Phantom World, is actually a light novel series. The series is written by Hataro Soichiro and illustrated by the artist Shirabi.

Interestingly there are three volumes in the light novel series. The first one was published in 2013. The second and third ones took their time and published in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

The anime adaptation was released in 2016.

To have a new season of any anime, there are some factors we have to keep in mind. 

  • If there is enough source material to make a new season
  • The popularity of the previous season or seasons 

Availability of the source material for Myriad Colors Phantom World season 2 release Date

Comparing to the other anime and light novel series, Myriad Colors Phantom World has very few light novel issues published. The last volume was published in 2016.

After that, there has been a long hiatus. We still don’t know if the series has ended with the third volume, or there might be a possibility to get more after some time of hiatus.

Anime is almost all times are solely dependant on the source materials. The case is the same for Myriad Colors Phantom World. But the good news is only the first volume has been adapted into anime. The first season consists of thirteen episodes and one OVA episode. 

So we can safely assume that the producers still have enough materials to make more than one season. 

The popularity of the previous season or seasons 

Despite having such a meager amount of light novel issues, the series is actually quite famous. The first volume got an honorable mention in the fourth Kyoto Animation Award in the novel category in 2013. 

The anime was one of the most anticipated ones during its release. But we must discuss that the anime adaptation was quite critically acclaimed, both by critics and viewers.

The producer Kyoto Animation is known for its stunning visuals and great quality productions. And Myriad Colors Phantom World was no exception. But even their top-quality animation could not hide the lack of originality in the anime.

Myriad Colors Phantom World is a fantasy action anime that turns borderline harem with the same cliche plot of a wannabe cool main character and typically three or more love interests. One tsundere, one loli, and one prim and proper beauty.

This reviewer on MyAnimeList says that “Musaigen no Phantom World is what I like to call the King of Stereotypical!” The anime is ranked 347 with around 404,000 people on popularity rank.

Is Myriad Colors Phantom World worth watching?

Is Myriad Colors Phantom World worth watching

Despite all the critical eye-rolls, the anime is actually nice to watch. The plot is good, and the visuals are stunning.

The characters might come off as a bit blad with the same type of characteristics placed on them. Still, if you can look into it for the first two to three episodes, the rest are pretty good for a binge-watch.


Myriad Colors Phantom World season 2 has no official release statement from the Kyoto Animation. Until we get any official statement regarding the release of the second season, the anime will have only one season. But if the fans are persistent enough, Kyoto Animation might release a season 2

So until we are getting a clear green light from the producers, we have to be satisfied with only one season. However, it is a good time to rewatch season 1.

Myriad Colors Phantom World season one is available to watch on online streaming platforms. Tune in to Crunchyroll to watch the anime in both English subtitles and dubbings.
