The first episode of the second season of How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord stormed onto screens in Japan last Friday, along with a stream right here on Crunchyroll. After the Paladins Gewalt and Tria had their voice actors revealed just before the broadcast of the first episode, today the former head of the Paladins, Batutta, got his voice actor and character art.
Voicing Batutta will be Kazuhiro Yamaji, known for voicing Kenny Ackerman in Attack on Titan.
How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord Ω premiered in Japan on April 8 on TBS and affiliated channels, with Crunchyroll streaming How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord every Thursday at 11:45 AM PDT. The synopsis of the second season is as follows:
After being summoned to another world as his character from a game, Diablo (Real Name: Sakamoto Takuma), enjoys life in a world just like his game where two women, Shera and Rem, both insist, “I’m the one who summoned him!”
Along the way, he fights the elite soldiers of the elves’ kingdom as well as the Fallen, and even subjugates the Demon Lord Krebskulm, and so on.
He proclaims, “My name is Diablo. A Demon Lord from another world!” and pretends to be a Demon Lord as he faces down powerful foes while occasionally being overwhelmed by the beautiful women with him and building a firm bond of trust between them.
—-Until one day.
Diablo and the others are traveling through the woods around the eastern lake when they encounter a lone girl in tatters.
“A-Are… you a God?”
The woman is Lumachina, a High Priest of the Church being pursued by a Paladin…!
The (pretend) Demon Lord with no social skills plunges into the mess with absolute strength!
These dream-packed tales of a Demon Lord from another world and the women who summoned him begin once again!
