SILVER LINK’s SASAKI AND PEEPS TV Anime Announces That Season 2 Is On The Way

What happens if an all-powerful wizard and all of his magical prowess gets reborn as a tiny, little bird?

That’s what the light novel series Sasaki and Peeps (Sasaki to Pii-chan) explores, with Peeps being a diminutive and feathered reborn wizard who tries to instill a middle-aged salaryman named Sasaki with his arcane wisdom.

Buncololi wrote the light novel, while Kantoku did the illustrations. A manga adaptation for Kadokawa Shoten’s online magazine Shōnen Ace Plus is illustrated by Pureji Osho.

Yen Press holds the English language license for the series and has released 2 volumes to date.

SILVER LINK recently wrapped up a 12 episode anime adaptation that aired from January to March 2024. 

Kadowaka posted a season 2 announcement video to YouTube, this past weekend.

A special event for the franchise has been announced for July 6 so we may learn more about when the second season will premiere.

The anime was the 29th ranked new and continuing anime for the Winter 2024 season, according to MAL. There were 56 new and continuing anime during this period.

Mirai Minato (Masamune-kun’s Revenge) helmed the series for SILVER LINK while Deko Akao (Komi Can’t Communicate, wrote and supervised the adaptation of the script. Saori Nakashiki (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!, Tales of Wedding Rings) handled character designs.

 Crunchyroll streamed the anime (both subbed and dubbed) in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS. 

The first season ended on a sizable cliffhanger so it’s not surprising that another season was in the works, even though it didn’t exactly redefine the isekai genre.
