The Wise Man’s Grandson is one of the most popular of all the Narrow works and has been made into an anime with a ringing endorsement in 2019.
It was said that a second season would be difficult due to the sluggish growth in disc sales, but we have thoroughly examined how it’s really going to be!
From one of the most popular titles in the NARROW to a blockbuster light novel

The Wise Man’s Grandson began to appear in serial form on Narrow Web in 2015.
At the time, Narrowrow had already become a massive site with 4 million unique users and about 1 billion page views per month, and many popular works had been published in book form.
Works such as “Log Horizon” and “Magical High School’s Inferior Students” were made into anime and became big hits, and they became established as leading works in the light novel market.
There was a steady flow of the next generation of popular light novels being born out of “Narou”.
At the same time, it was also the time when the next generation of novels were born.
The otherworldly reincarnation/transference boom was fierce, and since most of the works posted on Narou was in this genre, most otherworldly fantasy works never saw the light of day and were buried.
In such a situation, this wise man’s grandson, submitted by Yoshioka Tsuyoshi, was ranked number one in the daily edition just five days after it was submitted.
In no time at all, it became one of the most popular novels of all time, and the number of PV’s exceeded 10 and even 20 million, and it ranked high in the annual ranking, which led to the decision to publish it as a book.
His works have also been published in the “BALDR” series and “Mayochiki! This book will be published by Famitsu Bunko, inviting Seiji Kikuchi, known for his work on .
The first volume, released in July 2015, was urgently reprinted, and the second volume, released three months later, was also reprinted, making it a huge success in book form.
Furthermore, the following year, in 2016, Young Ace UP started a comic book version by Ogata Shunsuke, a teacher.
This comic version also became a big hit, and due to the synergistic effect, the original work continued to sell even more, and in the first half of 2017 alone, the series’ total number of copies sold increased tremendously from 200,000 to 400,000 to 550,000…and so on.
And in September 2017, after reaching 800,000 copies, the series will finally be made into an anime for TV.
The decision to make it into an anime after only 2 years and 8 months from the start of submission is much faster than other works in the series.
It has grown into one of the most successful works in the Famitsu library.
