To correct the bug, he had to work overtime during the weekend. Unfortunately, the stress accumulated from his job took a serious toll on his body, weakening it to the point where he passed away in his sleep. After that he, suddenly woke up in a parallel world greatly resembling the fantasy RPG games that he was working on his last world. Now he goes by the name of Satou Pendragon in the new world, which is conveniently the nickname he used when he was running beta tests in the old world.

Even the light novel series of Death March is still being produced and is currently on its 20th volume.
IS THERE ENOUGH SOURCE MATERIAL TO MAKE ANOTHER SEASON?
