Crunchyroll announced that it will once more stream the upcoming season.

Along with adding new characters, Season 2 will carry on the events of the first season. Similar to the recently finished season, Katarina’s original web novel will be adapted for the sequel.

October 1 marked the debut of the anime’s first season across 28 MBS/TBS networks. The anime ran for two straight seasons. As it aired, the anime was broadcast on Crunchyroll.

The manga adaptation by Ryōsuke Fuji of Katarina’s Shangri-La Frontier web book is published by Kodansha USA Publishing. The story is described as follows:

Rakurō Hizutome is a second-year high school student who is primarily concerned in finding and crushing “shitty games.” He is an expert gamer and never finds a game too difficult to play. He so does what he does best when he learns about the new virtual reality game Shangri-La Frontier—min-maxing and skipping the prologue to go right to the action. However, is it possible for even a skilled player like Rakurō to uncover every mystery Shangri-La Frontier conceals?

In May 2017, Katarina made the premiere of the novel series on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website. Additionally, Katarina contributed to Weekly Shōnen Magazine with another novel series. In July 2020, Fuji published the manga series Shangri-La Frontier in Weekly Shōnen Magazine. 

Further details on Shangri-La Frontier 

The story takes place in the not-too-distant future, when full-dive VR games are the norm and games with analogue display panels are labeled as antiquated. Since these games became popular, a large number of “trash games” have emerged. These are hurried, glitch-filled, and flawed games whose systems have not kept up with the advancements in visual technology.

Under the moniker Sunraku, Rakuro Hizutome is a trash game hunter and an avid fan of these typically repugnant games, which he plays until he masters them despite their faults and difficulties. Rakuro is experiencing a form of burnout syndrome after beating the massive Faeria Chronicle Online trash game.

The owner of his favorite game store, RockRoll, suggests that he purchase the great and best-selling full-dive VR game Shangri-La Frontier, which has 30 million registered players. As Sunraku, the player, he ventures into the land of Shangri-La Frontier, where his expertise as a garbage game hunter will come in useful as he advances through the game.
