Everybody is simply excited and we are all anxiously waiting for the return of Ye Xiu in the highly anticipated 2nd season of The King’s Avatar anime adaptation. I could still remember how every episode had given me goosebumps way back in 2017 as well as on its 3-episode OVA which had been released in 2018. There’s no doubt that The King’s Avatar had been a revolutionary key for the new wave of Chinese animation’s popularity in the international arena. Yes, it brought a new light to the Chinese animationindustry and community and re-introduced that China could even compete against Japan when it comes to anime production. And now, fans from all over the world are excited for its return as The King’s Avatar season 2 had been scheduled for release this 2020 after it was delayed and everybody almost lost their hope when the anime wasn’t released on 2019. However, a silver lining of optimism was found by the fans when Colored-Pencil Animationhad released a full-length trailer for The King’s Avatar season 2 on December 30, 2019. I think The King’s Avatar live-action series which was top-billed by Yang Yang had made the fans anxious and intensely excited for the anime since the live-action drama was received positively – both by the fans of the light novel series, the manhua and donghua.

The King’s Avatar Season 2 Story
The Great Hunting Festival
|Different guilds targeting Ye Xiu and crew|
The Great Hunting Festival – In case you might be wondering what I am talking about here, it’s just a tagline I created on my own to explain the next part of the story from The King’s Avatar that I will discuss. I call it a hunting festival because the in-game world of Glory had been on fire and even the Glory alliance will take a moment to look at the commotion that Lord Grim is making in the Glory’s in-game world. Yes, Lord Grim had become a thorn for the large and powerful guilds in the in-game world of Glory and this fact directly affects the professional team behind those guilds. To be specific, Tyrannical Ambition (Team Tyranny), Tiny Herb, Blue Brook Guild (Blue Rain), Excellent Dynasty (Excellent Era), and even the other guilds had been screwed upside down by to Lord Grim and his crew. This leads to the great hunting which almost every guild in the game was targeting Lord Grim and his allies. There will be a ton of boss stealing, scrap-picking, PVP, and dungeon hunting taking place in The King’s Avatar season 2. Do these things make you excited? I hope so because I am pretty anxious and craving to see this happened in the anime as soon as possible.

New Studio & Further Updates
It has been previously revealed that The King’s Avatar season 2 will be animated by a different studio as compared to its 1stseason. The King’s Avatar season 1 was animated by BC May which also works for other Chinese anime such as Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation & the upcoming 2020 Chinese anime Occult Investigator’s Strange Record. Now, The King’s Avatar Season 2 is handled by Colored-Pencil Animation, which previously worked on the 2018 All-Star Competition OVA of the anime. Furthermore, the studio also animated The King’s Avatar prequel movie: For the Glory which was released last August 16, 2020. If I have to base the quality of animation from those 2 previous works, I believe that The King’s Avatar season 2 is in the good hands and though we might not see the same quality again like the first season, we could definitely expect for a vibrant and full of life story and animation this time. Though, I am a little bit worry about the screenplay as I felt that it’s the biggest disappointment from the prequel movie as I have mentioned in my review of the Chinese anime film. Nonetheless, I could only expect positive things to happen and that should be enough to make me excited to watch The King’s Avatar as soon as possible.
The Kings Avatar Anime Season 2 Release Date
If I remember correctly, 2019 had been a huge year of surprises especially for Chinese anime fans since Tencent has this habit of surprising us. And just like with what they did with Battle Through the Heavens season 3 and the Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation season 2, they could surprise us any time soon with the release of The King’s Avatar season 2.
