Heavenly Delusion has become one of the hottest anime series since its first season was released in the spring of 2023.
Fifteen years after an unprecedented disaster, in a post-apocalyptic Japan where modern civilization has been completely destroyed, a boy named Maru and his female bodyguard, Kiruko, search for a place known as “Heaven”. In parallel, the story unfolds about children who have grown up in a walled facility, ignorant of the outside world. The simultaneous narratives of the Heaven part and the Wasteland part make this sci-fi adventure impossible to look away from.
First serialized as a manga series in 2018, Heavenly Delusion was animated for the first time in April 2023. The acclaimed studio, Production I.G, produced the first season, consisting of 13 episodes.
The Heavenly Delusion anime ended at a tantalizing point, leaving many viewers eager for more. While there has been no announcement for a sequel to the anime, there is a way to enjoy what comes next: by reading the original manga. This article explains where the Heavenly Delusion anime ends in the manga, and from which volume and chapter you can start reading to pick up where the anime left off.
Let’s delve into the manga to enjoy the continuation of the currently most buzzed-about Heavenly Delusion ahead of everyone else!

How many volumes does Heavenly Delusion have?
The Heavenly Delusion manga series is composed of 9 volumes so far (the latest 9th volume published in June 2023). The science fiction, adventure manga has been serialized in a Japanese manga magazine Monthly Afternoon since 2018, written by Masakazu Ishiguro. It has been translated into English since 2019.
What chapter does the Heavenly Delusion anime end on?
In conclusion, the first season of the Heavenly Delusion anime series ends with Episode 13 “The Journey Continues and Begins,” which coincides with the Volume 6 Chapter 34 of the manga series. In other words, if you want to enjoy the rest of the anime, I suggest you start reading Volume 6 Chapter 35 of the manga.
In the final episode of the anime, only a small part of the 7th volume was covered, but it would still be best to continue reading from the middle of the 6th volume, and then proceed to the 7th volume.
Season 1: Volume Chapter 1 to Volume 6 Chapter 34
Season 2: Volume 6 Chapter 35
At the end of the first season, Kiruko is faced with a crisis in the Wasteland arc, and Tokio in the Heaven arc. The continuation of Maru and Kiruko’s adventure, as well as the fate of the children inside the wall, is of concern.
When will Heavenly Delusion Season 2 air?
Unfortunately, there is no announcement yet for Heavenly Delusion Season 2. Considering the huge impact of the anime adaptation, there is certainly potential for a sequel in the future. However, when we consider the volume of the original manga, that seems to be a bit further down the line. Since the first season adapted almost 6 volumes of the manga, I predict that a second season would come after the release of the 12th volume. Given the current publishing pace, the 12th volume is likely to be released in 2025, which makes a potential broadcast for the second season around 2026. As the second season of the anime is still a way off, let’s enjoy the continuation of the story by reading the manga from Volume 6 onwards right now.
