Second Season of Rage of Bahamut: Genesis Greenlit

It appears that Bahamut’s rage is something that cannot easily be silenced.

Earlier today, the staff of the Rage of Bahamut: Genesis anime series announced that a second season was greenlit for production. The announcement was made at the Rage of Bahamut: Genesis orchestra concert, as well as the show’s official Twitter account:

Rough Translation: [Bahacon] The performance is over. I’d like to thank every one of you who came from the bottom of my heart. Thanks, it was a great concert. In the final performance, we also announced that a second season was approved for production! #Bahajene #bahamut_genesis

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis is based on the mobile game by Cygames. The title was directed by Keiichi Satou (Karas, Tiger & Bunny) and animated by MAPPA.

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis made its début on Japanese TV on October 6, 2014. FUNimation currently holds the North American rights to the show, and streams it on their digital platform.
