It was sort of confirmed? I'll be honest, the tracing wasn't to an extent that felt like plagiarism though. It mostly looked like heavy referencing for poses. I'm not an artists though, so maybe it is wrong to even look at other art work when doing your own.

It was actually pretty bad looking at some of the comparison shots.

But I haven't heard anything more about it since the initial blow-up.

Looking at it again, it wasn't even as bad as I remember. But like I said, I'm not an artist, so I'm not an expert on this stuff. Well I don't consider myself an artist of the drawing kind anyway.

It was worse than I remembered, so I guess we break even.

Just sucks if it's true, guess that's all that can really be said.

The tracing thing had absolutely no visible influence on the author. He struggled writing his 7th volume (re-writing it 5 times) which has nothing to do with the tracing obviously. This delayed the 7th volume, but the 7th volume was released just fine 2 weeks ago.


There is no words for a season 2. And I don't think we'll ever have one. They adapted volume 1 to 3 but the final scene suddenly jumped to the end of volume 6.
So what would they do for a new season?
1) ignore completely that last scene, and adapt volume 4,5,6 in one cour, finishing the second season with the same scene as the first season (lol)
2) Skipping volume 6 and rushing to 7 (and maybe 8 if the 7 is only the first part of an arc) so 4,5,7,(8). In the case they need 8, well, that's doable but they need that volume out beforehand. Volume 7 just got out so you'll have to wait a while... But then in both 4,5,7 and 4,5,8 they'll skip the BEST ARC (and by far) of this series, talk about a huge disappointment for the fans.
3) doing a two cour (4,5,6,7,8,9). Especially in case where the volume 7 is part of a bigger arc of 2 or 3 volumes. But that's a huge investment, so very unlikely if the first season was one cour.

Skipping directly to volume 7 is obviously not doable either since they'll need several characters introduced in volume 4 and 5. And the political situation changed accordingly in those volumes as well.

So well, that's a bit messed up. It's doable if they want, but if they wanted it, why put themselves in a problematic situation by adding that scene from the end of volume 6 at the end of the anime? That doesn't make sense to me...

Also, bear in mind that most LN adaptation never get a new season, since it's for advertisement only. Except if the sales drop too much, the publisher don't have a reason to pay for a second season right now...

8,774 average ¥359.1m gross plus boosted LN sales, they did fine in the money department.

There's no news. Believe me, you'll know when there is. LN7 just came out last month.

First, Madhouse doesn't do a lot of sequels, so don't get your hopes up. Second, in the last few minutes of the season they tossed in something from the future that isn't easy to just continue past. WE'll have to see if it ever gets a second season.

Short answer: No News. Don't expect any. Question answered by several people already, this should be closed soon.

Didn't the guy that writes the light novels say that the only reason why he made season 1 was just to get people to buy his light novels?


That's the only reason any light novel gets an adaptation.

Ahh don't understand how tracing is bad if the art work is completely different. Care to explain it to me ?

It's the visual version of paraphrase plagiarism, especially if you don't cite the original source and creator.

For example if you take a novel, rewrite it in your own words, as well changing all the names of people and places and possibly even the genre setting (say from a sci-fi to a fantasy, replacing all the tech with magic or magical appliances) you have still plagiarized the novel as its composition and structure--the intellectual property of the original creator--is unchanged. Additionally the purpose of the work is also unchanged, which is a stipulation related to satire/parody, etc.

Under US copyright law the result would be seen as a derivative work and guarded against by the original creator's rights. And even in cases which duck copyright law copying someone else's composition is a severe ethical transgression.

Although as you can imagine especially with visual arts this can all get very muddled very quickly.

OK but I still don't see that being the case here.

I seen millions of characters in the same way he has draw it. Don't see how his any different than the other artists.

Reference poses is one of the ways things can get muddled very quickly. However you should not be tracing other people's creative work in that way. Ideally the question of "How much do I have to change before the work is my own?" should be countered with "You shouldn't have to change anything at all because the work itself should be your own."

Whether or not this is a trace of cas--case of tracing ( ), I'm not able to answer.

You just asked what was bad about tracing was so I dug around a bit until I thought I could explain it well enough.
