Youjo Senki is a crime thriller in Japanese Anime. The show is also famously called The Saga Of Tanya The Evil, which made an appearance on television in 2017. It is an adaptation of a manga and novel series of the same name written by Carlo Zen. Enterbrain published the novel series, and Kadokawa Shoten was the name behind the publication of the mangas. There is also a movie adaptation of the show named Saga Of Tanya The Evil: The Movie.
The show ended on a major cliffhanger and left doubt in everyone’s mind about the show’s sequel. It has been four years since the season finale was aired, but the fans are still hopeful for positive news.
If the second season comes, we would know Tanya’s fate and if Mary was able to find her father’s murderer. If it doesn’t come, we have to rely on novels and manga, but that is hardly possible for English readers. So, should we leave all the hopes? Let us find out.
What Is Youjo Senki All About?
When the first episode made its debut in 2017 in Tokyo, we saw a Japanese atheist businessman being killed by his associate. This man never believed in God’s existence or the immortality of the soul. He spent his life doing all sorts of evil deeds and thus met a drastic end.
When the businessman is killed, he meets someone who claims to be the creator of this universe. No matter what, this man still refuses to believe in God and calls the guy Being-X. God, to punish him, puts him into a cycle of reincarnation where he has to be reborn as a young girl named Tanya.
Tanya is now living in 1920, where the world is still facing adverse effects of World War. As soon as Tanya understands the situation, she learns that she either needs to face a natural demise or believe in God’s existence. She, not ready to do the latter, decides to find a solution for the former, or she will be sent to hell for her past sins.
To save her life and get a natural death, Tanya joins the military where her sole aim was to get the highest rank possible, for which she worked hard. As she gets the highest rank, she becomes selfish and punishes those who don’t listen to her. As a result, she earns the title “the devil of Rhine.”
In the last episode (Spoiler Alert), we saw the Empire winning a significant battle. Tanya tries to convince everyone that the war is still left. Everyone then comes together to defeat Europe and take it over. Tanya, a disbeliever of God, thinks all has happened because of what people did and still denies God’s existence. She then challenges Being-X to face her. He instead of meeting Tanya puts all his power into another girl called Mary. The show ends where Mary is looking for her father’s killer.
What Can We Expect From Season 2?
We know that Tanya couldn’t get what she wanted, i.e., a stable life with fewer complications. Also, Mary’s search for her father’s murderer is still going on. In season 2, we can expect Mary to find out about his father’s killer.
Moreover, a big war between both the girls can be there as Tanya has still not faced Being-X and Mary with his powers can be the reason for the same.
The finale of season 1 was a cliffhanger, and the fans deserve closure. The light novel series Youko Senki has 12 volumes, out of which the first three were used for the plot of season 1, which means there is enough content left there for a well-deserved season 2.
