Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Season 1 Recap
The story of this anime series follows Ichiro Suzuki, a workaholic game programmer. His main job is to find bugs in games and fix them.
Since the games will be released as soon as possible, Ichiro needs to work overtime to find all the errors and solve them. That is why he is always super stressed in the anime.
Ichiro spends all of his time sitting in his office chair and fixing bugs in the video game.
One night, Ichiro spent a night in the office to work on a video game. He became so tired that he passed out and fell asleep on his desk.
The next morning, Ichiro wakes up into a new world that looks like an RPG game he worked on. He also looks different in this world and has a new name, Satou Pendragon. It’s the same name he uses to examine the beta version of games to test out bugs.
Ichiro (now Satou) is extremely confused about what is happening to him. He believes that he is just dreaming. However, while he is still processing all the details, he gets attacked by lizardmen.
Afraid to die, Satou uses a skill called “Meteor Rain” and kills all of his enemies. He also killed a God with his attack. After killing all lizardmen and a God, Satou’s level increased from 1 to 310.
Satou realized that he has been Isekai’d, which means there is no way for him to return to his normal life. Since he’s already level 310, he is also one of the most powerful characters in this world.
The story continues with Satou making friends with other characters in the world. He goes on a fun and great adventure while hiding his true level from his friends.
Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2: Things to Expect
Connect and Silver Link (Producer and Studio) might have to reconsider how they want to show the anime to provide more stimulation to the fans and capture more viewers.

The anime only covered the first 3 volumes of the light novel. As of today, there are almost 20 volumes in the light novel.
Still, fans should expect the continuation of Satou’s adventure in this new world while meeting new friends and enemies along the way.
Due to the success of this anime series, it’s quite obvious why a lot of fans are asking for season 2. If the creators decide to create a new season, Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody Season 2 might come back in 2022 if not in 2023.
