Fans of the anime In Another World With My Smartphone are surprised that after 5 years it has been announced that Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni season 2 is now in production.
In Another World With My Smartphone is a Japanese light novel series written by Patora Fuyuhara and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka. It started serialization online in 2013 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shosetsuka ni Naro (Let’s Become a Novelist) until Hobby Japan acquired it and published it as a light novel.
The web novel had a cumulative total of more than 391 million page views and more than 2.5 million copies of the light novels have been sold. The western release of the light novels outsold the Japanese releases, which may have been a factor in the decision to produce season 2.
J-Novel Club has released every English novel in 6 weekly parts since February 2017. In November 2016, a manga adaptation by Soto began serialization in Kadokawa Shoten’s Camp Ace. Yen Press has licensed the English manga.
The latest light novel, Isekai Smartphone Volume 26 Special Edition with Drama CD, will be released on April 19, 2022! It is published by Hobby Japan under the label HJ Novels.

Which studio is making Isekai Smartphone season 2?
The studio that is making Isekai Smartphone Season 2 has not yet been announced. Studio Production Reed (renamed Ashi Productions in 2019) is the studio behind the anime adaptation, which aired from July to September 2017. The anime series is licensed by Crunchyroll.
If you haven’t seen Season 1, now is the time to check it out and get hyped for Season 2! The story begins when 15-year-old Touya Mochizuki is accidentally killed by God. As an excuse, God allows Touya to be resurrected. However, Touya is not allowed to return to his original world and only has the option to reincarnate in a new fantasy world.
God tells Touya that he may make one special request. Touya decides that he wants to take his smartphone with him to the new world. God modifies Touya’s phone so that it can be charged by magic, access data about the new world he is in, and use a GPS function to find places he is looking for. Unfortunately, he can’t use it to connect to his old world.
As a further apology for killing him, God grants Touya super strength, magical powers, and cognitive abilities. Touya decides to live his new life to the fullest and befriend many beautiful women and high-ranking people. Touya travels to different countries, resolves political disputes and joins his new friends and allies on missions.
