According to the newest issue of Megami magazine, The official name for the second season is apparantly going to be "Zero no Tsukaima ~Soutsuki no Kishi~" (ゼロの使い魔~双月の騎士~) (Knight of Twin Moons). This title hints at vol.9 contents since the volume's title was "Soutsuki no Butoukai" (双月の舞踏会). cyan-san from MOON PHASE also suggests that there's a good chance of Tiffania appearing.

I figured vol.8 would be a good cutoff point, since vol.9 and 10 gets Saito into a whole new mess with Henrietta and Tabitha... But oh well, we'll see.

Also a good indication that the second season would be longer than the first, (fingers crossed for 26 ep series)

Hi. Does novel 8 ends in a cliffhanger? Or a certain plot is resolved up to that point? Sorry, the novel discussion thread is kinda long to go through and the summaries seems to be scattered..

Well, there are still several loose ends left untied at the end of vol.8, but in general, vol.8's ending marked the conclusion of a long "arc" that took place mainly in Albion (not to mention it ended with a nice and sweet Louise x Saito scene).

Starting from vol.9 though, the stage shifts back to the magic academy where many new developments will take place, hence my comment about vol.8 being a good cutoff point for the anime.

How many novels are out and how many more would you predict?

And I bet I can guess how the entire thing ends. Either he goes home with her or alone. I wonder, I wonder.

The light novel is currently on its 10th volume (+1 side story volume featuring Tabitha that's unrelated to the main story). As for how many more I think there will be, I answered it in the novel thread before: I don't know, but it probably won't end anytime soon. It'll most likely take at least another 3 volumes just to tie up all the loose ends, and that's assuming no new development takes place.

My ideal second season would be 24 episodes that spans the latter half of vol.5 until the end of vol.8. Seeing as how they have already confirmed that the second season will continue to follow the novel story, it's almost certain that the long Albion war arc will be covered. It's up to the anime staff, though, to deliver us a satisfying adaptation that focus the story on where it counts, instead of something like the first season, where meaningful scenes and moments were sacrificed for (relatively) pointless contents (episode 4 anyone?).

I somewhat have a general idea of the story line for up to ~7-8.. Don't know if spoiler tags are warrented, but I guess better to be safe that sorry.. Don't know if I'm using them properly though..

Spoiler for Louise:


Spoiler for Siesta:


Spoiler for The:


Are there any other minor/major events up to vol 8 and could that fit into another 13 eps season?

I'd just like to address the issue of the correct reading of the series' new subtitle. Soutsuki no kishi is one romanization that I've came across, but I also found Futatsuki no kishi and Futazuki no kishi. I'd really love to know the correct one, if anyone has the right idea to share.

Japan's Wikipedia says the following, which would be in favor of Futatsuki no kishi:
Quote:
第2シリーズ

2006年12月、テレビアニメ第2シリーズの制作が決定。2007年3月、東京国際アニメフェア2007 で『ゼロの使い魔~双月の騎士~』(ゼロのつかいま ふたつきのきし)の制作が発表された。2007年7月よりチバテレビ他UHF局とCS局のキッズステーショ ンで放送予定。
I'd think the Japanese know what they're talking about (pun intended), so can I take their Wikipedia as a reliable source?

Thank you.

Then again, there are places that list otherwise.

I used Soutsuki because it's an actual name, whereas Futatsuki would be an uncommon pronounciation. But it's perfectly possible they went for the latter.

Either way, I don't really care about how it's read. All that's important is that we have a name for the second season.

Oh, it doesn't necessarily apply to this, but the "don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia" applys for the Japanese as well.

That's why I asked. Can't be too careful these days, especially when you're running an anime news site of your own. I just want to write an Errata entry as soon as I'm sure of the correct reading, that's all.

I just flipped through the June issue of Dengeki G's, and the title for the second season was written as "Futatsuki no Kishi",

There, mystery solved?

Hopefully. I'll settle with Futatsuki for now. No errata entry too. Thank you.

i re-read all the summaries and vol 8 would make a perfect ending point. however, i somehow got a strong feeling that it will be another 13 ep season and will cause alot of perfectly good material to go to waste once again.

It's been answered many times over but the first season roughly covers vol.1 to 3, with some minor contents from vol.4 and 5.

The second season will cover vol.6 and onward (most likely until the end of vol.7 or 8).

Speaking of which, Famitsu has finally released new info and images of the upcoming season!
http://www.famitsu.com/anime/news/20...72461,0,0.html

Besides Elenor and Kattleya, we have:

Agnes look quite cute, actually.
She plays quite a big role in vol.6 and 8, so I look forward to seeing her in action.


Julio.
The Romaria priest who "transferred" to the magic academy.
...Hmm, a little different from the novel's setting. But design wise, he feels about right. (why such a menacing look though? ^^; )


Sheffield.
Could it be any more obvious that she's a baddie?
Oh, and her description is filled with spoilers, what's up with that? ^^;
