More details on the second season of In Another World With My Smartphone will be revealed at a later date, with no information on staff, air date or more revealed at this time.
The first season of In Another World With My Smartphone aired between July 11, 2017, and September 26, 2017, and was streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired in Japan with Funimation producing an English dub, which is also now streaming here on Crunchyroll. The streamer describes the series as such:
After dying as a result of God's mistake, the main character finds himself in a parallel world, where he begins his second life. His only possessions are the body that God gave back to him and a smartphone that works even in this new world. As he meets all kinds of new people and forges new friendships, he ends up learning the secret to this world. He inherits the legacy of an ancient civilization and works together with the kings of some very laid-back countries on his carefree travels through this new world.
