Ao Jyumonji writes the light novel series, and Eiri Shirai illustrates it. The first volume was published on June 25, 2013. Readers showered their love for novel sequences, and hence, on April 22, 2015, manga series adaptation was released.
Mutsumi Okuhashi is the illustrator in the manga. The success of manga brings hope for A-1 Pictures Inc. Studio. Subsequently, Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Season 1 broadcasted on January 11, 2016. Since then, season 2 is on the waiting list. Let’s have some more updates for the second part.
Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Season 2- Renewal Status Update!
As questioned in the first line of this article, no one will invest their money in the thing that provides comparatively less profit. The same goes with A-1 Pictures’ Isekai anime Grimgar season 1.

However, after certain episodes, people started liking the television series. Funimation also helped this anime to reach internationally by providing licenses and rights.
