The first full-length trailer and main visual for In Another World With My Smartphone Season 2 have been released. An April Japanese premiere date was revealed as well.
The anime is based on the Hobby Japan-published light novel series written by Batora Fuyuhara and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka. The In Another World With My Smartphone book series, which are published under the HJ Novels label, began in 2015 and has 27 volumes as of October 2022.
J Novel Club describes the light novels as:
After a freak accident involving some lightning winds up zapping him dead, 15-year-old Mochizuki Touya wakes up to find himself face-to-face with God. “I am afraid to say that I have made a bit of a blunder…” laments the old coot. But all is not lost! God says that he can reincarnate Touya into a world of fantasy, and as a bonus, he gets to bring his smartphone along with! So begins Touya’s adventure in a new, anachronistic pseudo-medieval world. Friends! Laughs! Tears! Inexplicable Deus ex Machina! He sets off on a journey full of wonder as he absentmindedly travels from place to place, following whatever goal catches his fancy. The curtains lift on an epic tale of swords, sorcery, and smartphone apps!
