The final episode of the new television anime of Yoshinobu Akita's Sorcerous Stabber Orphen (Majutsushi Orphen Haguretabi) light novel series announced on Wednesday that the anime is getting a second season. The title of the new season is Majutsushi Orphen Haguretabi Kimluck-hen (Sorcerous Stabber Orphen -Battle of Kimluck-). The anime's official website also began streaming an announcement video.

The first season premiered on AT-X on January 7. Funimation is streaming the anime in Japanese with English subtitles as it airs in Japan, and Funimation is streaming an English dub.

Takayuki Hamana (Library War, Mushibugyō, The Prince of Tennis) directed the first season at Studio DEEN, and Reiko Yoshida (Girls und Panzer, K-ON!, Violet Evergarden, Yowamushi Pedal) was in charge of the series scripts. Takahiko Yoshida (Big Windup!, Cells at Work!, Yowamushi Pedal) designed the characters based on the novel illustrations by Yuuya Kusaka. Showtaro Morikubo performed the anime's opening theme song "Calling U" with his buzz★Vibes music unit. Fuchigami performed the ending theme song "Yosō Funō Days" (Unpredictable Days).

J-Novel Club licensed the novels and is releasing them digitally. The company describes the story:

Orphen is a Sorcerer drop-out from the prestigious Tower of Fangs. His journey to save Azalie, a girl he looked up to like a sister, has brought him to the bustling city of Totokanta. Here they are reunited for the first time in five years. But what is the truth behind her monstrous transformation, and just what secrets lurk behind the Sword of Baldanders...?

Akita began the light novel series in 1994 with illustrations by Yuuya Kusaka. The new anime is commemorating the series' 25th anniversary. Akita debuted a new volume in the series on December 25, the first new volume in the light novel series in four years.
