The second not less critical indicator is the availability of source material for a next television adaptation. The original manga series contains 28 volumes consisting of 251 chapters. The most recent book was issued on October 4, 2017, and the series is currently ongoing. Given the fact that the third season of the anime covered the story up to Volume 21, there is enough source material in the seven remaining volumes.
