Season 1 Recap
The story is based on 20-years old college student Haruto Amakwa who met with an unfortunate accident.
Even after death, Haruto was resurrected in Rio’s body. Rio is a poor boy who resided in the slums and suddenly he is struggling with memories. It was because the personalities, as well as the memories of Haruto and Rio, were combining together. Upon living with his new reality, Rio soon realizes his power.
These talents encourage him to take revenge for his mother’s death who was killed when Rio was just 5 years old.
The show was a big hit amongst viewers and obtained amazing ratings as well as viewership. But during the season finale, there was still anticipation if the show will be renewed for season 2 or not. But it seems like season 2 is back.

In season 1, viewers see how brave Rio saved Celia. After knowing about his powerful capabilities, Rio went on a hunt to find the killer of his mother, Lucius Orgueille. In the process, Rio was seen helping Liselotte, and then a severe conflict was seen between nobles as well as the princess.
Towards the end of the season, Rio uses telepathy to connect with Celia during her wedding. When he learns that Celia wants to flee, he helps her to escape by taking help from Aishia.
Seirei Gensouki Season 2 Plot & Cast
Season 2 will show more of Haruto’s as well as Rio’s lives. In season 1, it was more about Rio. There is a possibility that the unanswered question of the parallel universe will also be answered.
