Why Redo Of Healer Season 2 May NEVER Be Adapted In The Future

All those disingenuous websites that make articles about “Redo Of Healer Season 2: Latest Details” for a few clicks have no real idea when the anime is coming.

Not any more than the most hardcore fan who is patiently waiting for it to come to fruition.

One thing we CAN say though, at least from an informed point of view, is the likelihood of Redo of Healer season 2 being adapted from its latest light novel content is slim.

This is in spite of the author who claimed Season 2 may be possible in the future (based on the clout, attention, and numbers at the time back in 2021).

Let’s talk about WHY it may never happen.

 

1. Who will stream it in the current climate of the 2020s?

This is an important question which has a mostly disappointing answer.

A lot has happened since 2021 when Redo Of Healer first aired. And I mean A LOT when you ignore the obvious controversies and memes that have taken place.

First of all, Funimation no longer exists. Second, Crunchyroll is now owned by Sony.

3rd, Crunchyroll is now the dominant anime streaming platform that owns almost all the previously independent streaming anime sites in other countries.

The only one left besides Crunchyroll, which is now an official monopoly, is Sentai Filmworks.

 

Sentai Filmworks (HiDive) are the ones who had the balls to stream Redo Of Healer in the first place. They’re the ones who promoted it heavily on their Twitter and social networks.

They ended up getting a lot of respect from the community as a result of this.

I think even the uncensored version was a result of Sentai Filmworks (Hidive) as far as it being available besides the regular version of Redo Of Healer.

On the other hand, platforms like Crunchyroll and Funimation refused to air it. As we saw a year earlier, those same platforms (Funimation in particular) aired Ishuzoku Reviewers and then cancelled it.

And Crunchyroll ended up HEAVILY censoring Shuumatsu No Harem during its release in 2022, January.

Black Lines and all types of nonsense.

So with all this in mind, plus the fact SONY owns Crunchyroll in 2024 and beyond, who will take Redo Of Healer seriously?

Sentai Filmworks might, assuming they don’t get bought by then, or assuming Crunchyroll’s dominance isn’t overshadowing their relevance today.

Even then, besides Sentai Filmworks, who, what, and where will it be promoted in order for it to succeed to the best of its ability?

We know DISNEY and other platforms (Netflix included) won’t air it or buy the rights to it. It would be shocking if they did.

For an anime series, Redo Of Healer has a lot of obvious challenges for a 2nd season to be released and adapted. Season 1 struggled already (and did well despite it but still).

I can’t see Redo Of Healer EVER having a 2nd season adapted for this one reason, but there are more to consider.

2. Redo Of Healer is too politically incorrect

The anime’s premise is genuine, meaning the main character is a hero who is pure, a teenager, and this is all ruined by a princess who is two-faced to an extreme.

She, and others, colonize, destroy, and ruin the lives of all but then smile in public and persuade people into believing they are good.

R*pe, torture, abuse, drug abuse, gang banging – the main character Keyaru goes through hell a dozen times, then seeks out revenge against this woman called Flare.

That “revenge” after dialogue back time involves r*pe and making her feel every bit as small as he did when she did the same thing to him.

This creates the double standard argument that is prevalent in the West (it did), and with a 2nd season and the savagery that takes place, you can only imagine this politically incorrect story being denied access by many.

Not to mention being denied a chance to succeed on a major level (which it would) considering how successful it was despite censorship from all angles, in all countries.

Keyaru goes on to travel with the same woman he got revenge against, except he WIPES her memories clean so she’s a different person all together.

Then he f*cks this same woman along with other women in his “harem”, and this further plays into and fuels the controversial nature of this anime and its politically incorrect messages.

All this made it hard for season 1, so season 2 in the new climate we’re in seems like something out of a fairy tale as far as it being adapted and treated fairly (as creative freedom is supposed to do).

3. Sony is a known gatekeeper for the most extreme censorship

Remember, Sony owns Crunchyroll just like Funimation, but Funimation has been sunset since 2024 so the latter isn’t relevant nowadays.

In the video games world, especially when talking about anime games, Sony has censored the shit out of an unspeakable amount of games.

Senran Kagura is probably the most obvious game I can think of without effort. But there are plenty of others they’ve tampered with because of all that fake Puritanism nonsense and patronising attitude with the “bad for the kids” excuse people love using for justification.

Now Sony owns Crunchyroll, imagine how many anime won’t see the light of day that may touch on serious topics that are deemed “controversial” when in fact the majority don’t view it that way?

Redo Of Healer for these reasons won’t see the light of day as far as a 2nd season, and a season 3 is simply taking the idea of dreaming too far.

Especially when those dreams are being gatekept by the likes of Sony (and Crunchyroll by extension). Making it even harder for other streaming platforms in the anime space to buy the rights to these anime, and then make it profitable (and popular) in the process.

In the end, Redo Of Healer, regardless of opinions, was a successful series and one that highlighted the double standards of society.

This is why it pissed so many people off.

Its message might be tough to swallow, especially in the revenge stage, but creative freedom and the freedom to express these ideas shouldn’t be censored.

But in a non-ideal world (with Redo Of Healer specifically), a 2nd season and content like this will have a hard time being adapted until better solutions and services pop up.
