Prediction for where to watch explained
Season 1 showed a man who refused to believe in the existence of God, even after death. So, he was reincarnated into the body of a young orphan girl named Tanya Degurechaff.
Tanya is told that she must have a natural death or she will be sent to hell. So she becomes a military soldier so she can survive and avoid being punished for eternity. In doing so, she becomes almost diabolical in her murder sprees and is given the name ‘Devil of the Rhine’.
Season 2 will show Tanya’s continued ruthlessness in the army. While Mary was defeated in the film, she will likely return after having recovered from her fight with Tanya, to face off again.
Now that she has been given control of the 8th Kampfgruppe we will see Tanya grow further into a power of position which may help her, should she come face to face with Being X or more loyal subjects, like Mary.
Please note: The plot for Season 2 at this time is just a prediction and has not yet been confirmed.

Four local mothers reflect on parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic
Many mothers shouldered the herculean tasks of working, supporting loved ones and dealing with fatigue at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Star talked to four Ventura County moms in various home settings about how they fared over the last year. Ventura residents Dariann Kobe and Jessica Grinsel, Cielo Ruiz Grajalez, of Oxnard, and Pancheng Wang, of Oak Park, talked about their experiences navigating the pandemic with their kids.
© ANTHONY PLASCENCIA/THE STAR With three girls in the home, the Grinsel family, of Ventura, has decided to use the school district's home-school program for the first time on Tuesday with mother Jessica Grinsel in charge of the lesson plans.
'Looking back, the past year shelter-at-home was such a unique and memorable lifetime experience,' Wang said in a text.

These moms juggled meals, schedules and expectations. They worried about their children's well-being, their social lives and their cell phone use.
While the past 18 or so months was a challenge, it wasn't all bad. Family members fought but also bonded in new ways. Moms also adapted, getting help from online resources like Google or virtual academies and from community efforts like food distribution programs.
Venturing into the unknown
Kobe has four children, the oldest of whom — a kindergartener — is enrolled in Ventura Unified School District. Kobe chose not to share their names for privacy reasons.
The kindergartener attends a dual-immersion school, where students are taught both English and Spanish.
When the closures continued into the new school year, Kobe was worried. She didn't speak Spanish, and she wondered how dual immersion would happen.
'That, in and of itself, presented some challenges,' she said. 'I found myself Google translating kindergarten homework.'
She joked that it was a humbling experience.
Wang said it was unprecedented to have her entire family, including her, her husband and two kids, at home.
At first, she struggled with having to make three meals every day for four people.
A few months into the pandemic, they changed it up so that the kids — Joy Chu, an eighth grader, and Trent Chu, a junior — would make their own lunch. The family also decided to mix in some take-out from local restaurants and fast food joints.

Meals aside, it took time for the family to get comfortable being at home all the time.
'Sometimes, we fight,' Wang said.
For example, sometimes they would argue over cell phone usage. When the kids are at school, she doesn't necessarily know how often they're on their devices.
That said, the proximity has also brought the family together. They would go on regular family walks during the pandemic, a first given how busy Joy and Trent used to be with extracurriculars.
Going to hybrid
Kobe said that while the district did a good a job as it could have, it was hard to accept that her family didn't get to celebrate her son's first day of kindergarten with all the normal traditions like walking him to campus and introducing him to others.
Early on in the school year, Kobe's son did distance learning from home while she ensured that the other kids stayed out of the room. Eventually, the family enrolled the kindergartener with the Las Posas Children's Center, which allowed him to be with some classmates while distance learning and to have access to a Spanish-speaking counselor.
When Ventura Unified started hybrid for elementary students in December, Kobe had her son go back as well.
'I just lost it in the car,' Kobe said from the basketball team. She said it felt harder to leave him at school than it would've been in August.
But then, schools remained closed after winter break through February due to a rise in COVID-19 cases, so Kobe's son went back to the daycare center.
'For as tough as my kid is, we did see it affect him — not being in a stable environment,' she said.
In talking with other moms, she said the things she and her husband had noticed like being emotionally sensitive and having an 'off' sleeping schedule were happening to other kids as well.

Grajalez is mom to Angel Peña Ruiz, a sophomore at Pacifica High School in Oxnard. Ruiz has Down syndrome and has difficulties with hearing and speech.
Interviews with Grajalez were done in Spanish with translation assistance from Pacifica paraeducator Maggie Ramos.
When The Star spoke to her in December, Grajalez said Ruiz went backward in her learning and did negative things she hadn't done before. It was difficult for her to comprehend what was going on, especially at the start of the pandemic.
The mom said this school year was better than last, especially with the hope that the vaccines and low case numbers provide. Grajalez said Ruiz has become accustomed to her 'new normal' learning at home.
While that's a huge positive, it wasn't easy to get to this point.
Financially, it's been difficult for the family. With Ruiz at home all the time because of the pandemic, Grajalez wasn't able to take her to school or even leave her with a babysitter, so she could work.
Grajalez said she really struggled with the high cost of rent in the area, along with bills to pay. Oxnard Union High School District's food distribution program has been a huge help, she said.
As Ruiz learned from home, Grajalez said she has come to understand how hard it can be for teachers, paraeducators and others to do their work. Their work especially this year, she said, has been a blessing to her family.
She realized she can help Ruiz at home to smooth the experience at school and help her succeed. She plans to do this while hopefully taking on a full-time job.
Grajalez thinks Ruiz will be ready to go to school in person in the fall, though the thought also makes her sad because she's gotten used to having her daughter at home.
Striking a balance
Like Grajalez, Wang's main reason to keep her kids home for the year, was out of concern about the virus. She didn't want to risk exposure in this 'last stage' as restrictions lift, especially when the family has been at home for more than a year.
Reflecting on the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wang said she thought she was 'kind of extreme' in the way she kept her kids at home with no social hangouts or meaningful outside time for the first couple months.
Wang said Joy initially put up a fight, especially when her friends began returning to school, but Wang explained the risk involved. Her daughter and son agreed to stay home.
But she worried about their socialization and mental health.
'It’s really hard as a mom to try to seek balance between COVID and between mental health,' she said, speaking both about her kids and herself.
She allowed her children to play tennis once or twice a week after she got over her initial fears. They were also able to hang out with a few trusted friends on a weekly basis.
Wang, who works at Bank of America, said she wanted to go back to the office to have social time.
'Similar to my kids, I hang out with my close friends who we know,' she said. 'Everybody is very cautious.'
This balance, she said, has been good for her family.
The Star first spoke to Jessica Grinsel at the start of the school year. In August, Grinsel was starting to homeschool her daughters Ava, River and Seaenah for the first time.
So far, she said the experience has been good.
'Gosh, it’s been everything I imagined,' she said.
She knew there would be challenges and risks with going down the homeschool route. For example, she outsourced math so that the girls were learning from a virtual math academy which has boosted their confidence in the subject, she said.
'The girls have been great,' Grinsel said. 'They have the right personality and disposition. That was part of the secret ingredient that made this work.'
She said her relationship as a teacher to the girls was unique because she could identify hang-ups or challenges they were having and help them work through it.
River, for example, had a hard time with spelling and complained about being a terrible speller. Grinsel realized River was not enunciating and learning the word properly. The mom tried to ensure the girls weren't rushing through building study habits.
She said it's been a positive experience, and their ability to communicate has definitely improved, but they went into it knowing the girls would return to public school on campus.
'I offered them to continue with homeschool,' she said. 'They politely declined.'
