Iroha Tamaki will surely be back in Magia Record Season 2. The franchise has officially announced the second season’s coming, along with an official release date.
Studio SHAFT earlier revealed the new season would be part of the summer 2021 release, so the long wait would be soon over. In addition, a new Magia Record Season 2 trailer has dropped and teased what fans are about to see next.
New Trailer, Update and Other Major Details
According to Comicbook, the new season will officially bear the title Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story 2nd Season – Eve of Awakening.
The 72-second preview features the series’ main characters as they are about to start a new journey. It then shows a series of intense turns of events that they all have to go through.
Of course, if several problems will arise, there will be fun times, too.
Magia Record Season 2 seems to take fans to another set of a roller coaster of emotions with its different kind of tale.
Elsewhere, according to Comicbook, the franchise also reveals the new season’s opening and ending themes.
ClariS will perform the opening song, titled “Careless,” while TrySail will sing the ending theme, called “Lapis.”
The latter tune is the same melody heard in the trailer.

Despite the gaping hole in her life, Tamaki continues to fight, though she has no idea why, per Ani Trendz.
“Something important has been lost,” the storyline reveals. “Then, a rumor begins to spread among Magical Girls.”
