The magic is far from over for "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years." Set in an enchanted world, this light novel turned anime gives its central character —Azusa Aizawa — a surprising twist on a new life. Constantly enthralling storylines along with a visual style that is true to the source material made it a standout title upon release. The series' plot also offers its own lessons for how everyone deals with the world's ever-present stresses.

An initial run on Japanese TV helped the series grow into a buzz-worthy project. Months later, "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years" hit the US thanks to a deal with Crunchyroll (via Anime News Network) — the service is currently home to the entire run. While the first season ended with Azusa enjoying her current situation, there are sure to be some challenges on the horizon. Fans don't have to wait too long to find an answer to their questions about renewal. The series started out 2022 with a surprise announcement.

What is the release date for I've Been Killing Slimes For 300 Years Season 2?

Good news for anyone seeking more adventure with the Witch of the Highlands. "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years" is returning for a second season (via Crunchyroll). The series' official Twitter account sent out the news along with an accompanying image to celebrate. No date was announced in the message, so it could be a while before Japanese viewers get a glimpse of the next season.

The announcement does not allude to international dates, so audiences outside of Japan could be facing an added delay. If there's any hope for fans, it comes from the first season's initial run. "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years" transitioned onto Crunchyroll in the same month as its Japanese air dates (via Crunchyroll). For Crunchyroll viewers, the series is available with the original voice actors and English subtitles. Several dubs are also on-demand, including Spanish, English, and French.

As of early 2022, there is no information about which voice actors will return for a second season. The first season had an extensive cast take on the leading roles. Original Japanese dialogue sees Aoi Yūki as Azusa Aizawa, who has also been featured in numerous voice roles such as those related to the popular "Pokémon" video game franchise (via IMDb). She's joined by Kaede Hondo (Laika), Sayaka Senbongi (Falfa), Minami Tanaka (Shalsha), Sayaka Harada (Halkara), Manami Numakura (Beelzebub), Azumi Waki (Flatorte), and Riho Sugiyama (Rosalie).

What is the plot of I've Been Killing Slimes For 300 Years Season 2?

Azusa Aizawa lives a normal — yet all too ordinary — life. Full of stress and strain, the toll of her work eventually proves to be too much. After dying, she finds a second chance at life. Now, Azusa's back — but restored to a world that is far from the one she knew before.

This immortal witch is set on righting the wrongs that led to her untimely death while pursuing a stress-free life. Nothing is as easy as it seems, though, as she gets through each day by hunting slimes. It doesn't go unnoticed as her power and friendships reach unbelievable heights.

Season 1 ended with Azusa realizing the importance of what she's learned along the way as well as a renewed vigor for life. Running a cafe with friends also showed her how much they had become an integral part of her story. Season 2 could follow the outline already set out by the light novel and manga properties, or venture into new areas undiscovered in the original material. We're expecting to learn more about the backstories of the main characters in Season 2 as well, but stay tuned for any official updates.
