DanMachi Season 3 Confirmed, an OVA Release Date Announced
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Season 3 has been confirmed on September 27, 2019. The exciting news appeared in another issue of Comic Natalie. However, this is not the only exciting news. In addition, it was revealed that an OVA is also in the works and is set to premiere on January 29, 2020. Watch the respective video confirmation below. Honestly speaking, we were sure in such a positive decision on renewal and even predicted a possible release date. Read our forecast as well as the additional data below.
Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka is based on the 2013 Japanese light novel of the same name, written by Fujino Omori. Few know, but the 1st season of the anime covered only five volumes of the original light novel series. As a result, ten more volumes remained for other television adaptations. It seems that DanMachi Season 2 should adapt five more books.
At the same time, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? volume 15 has been issued on the eve of the 2nd season premiere, on June 14, 2019. As a result, as of today, we have enough source material for a third television adaptation of the DanMachi light novel series. In our opinion, thereby DanMachi Season 3 is just a matter of time.
Another vital factor, which plays in favor of renewal is that the 2nd round of DanMachi premiered right after the movie titled Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion, which appeared on the big screens on February 15, 2019. No doubt, we regard this fact as a good signal, since, occasionally, a feature-length movie serves as the final chapter of a franchise.
Therefore, if the series' creators opted to pick up Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Season 2 once the movie's premiere, that means that they are going to continue the franchise. As a result, the franchise is no doubt alive, and should be extended with another television season.
Needless to say that Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Season 1 was a success, given the statistics of the season on MyAnimeList. According to their data, DanMachi Season 1 holds a score of 7.81/10 based on over 425,000 votes. Also worth mentioning that Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Movie: Orion no Ya has a rating of 7.60/10 based on about 8,000 votes.
Summing up, the DanMachi franchise has a good chance to obtain a Season 3. Since all the recent news arrives from Japan, we are tracking down the respective official sources to inform you about any updates. As soon as any additional official data about DanMachi Season 3 surfaces, we will update this page.
DanMachi Season 3 Release Date
As we have mentioned above, in our opinion, DanMachi should return for a Season 3; at least, we don't rule out the positive resolution, given the data presented above. Yet it's quite difficult to predict the likely release date for another television adaptation since the gap between two previous seasons lasted for four years.
Looks like that the production of another season is quite costly and resource-intensive process. Nonetheless, we hope that this time we don't need to wait so long. However, also worth noting that the number of episodes in DanMachi Season 2 is unknown so far. If there are only thirteen episodes like it was in Season 1, we hope that the production on DanMachi Season 3 will take a year or so. In such a case we might see DanMachi Season 3 already next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the anime series.
But still, the final decision would depend on J.C.Staff Co., Ltd., the studio, which is responsible for the television adaptation. As a result, we are looking forward to the official announcement. As soon as the studio announces DanMachi Season 3 as well as sets a specific release date, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
The first season covers the first five volumes of the original light novel series. Set in the fictional city of Orario, the storyline follows the adventures of a teenage boy named Bell Cranel. Bell is an adventurer under the goddess Hestia, and the only member of her family. He is just a naive young boy, who is dreaming of becoming the greatest adventurer in the land. After Bell stumbled upon Hestia, he has become a bit closer to his goal. Enlisting the help of Hestia, Bell embarks on a fantastic journey deeper into the dungeon filled with hordes of monsters.
DanMachi Season 1 kicked off back in April 2015 on Tokyo MX, and was soon broadcast on SUN, KBS, BS11, and other Japanese television networks. The J.C.Staff studio served as a developer of the television adaptation. Sentai Filmworks acted as a licensor of the series in North America. The 2nd installment of the anime premiered on July 6, 2019. The anime is based on the eponymous light novel series by Fujino Omori.
