Kakegurui Season 3: Whether There Will Be Another Season?

Kakegurui

If you're a devoted fan of Kakegurui, you no doubt are trying to figure out will there be Kakegurui Season 3? The 2nd television adaptation concluded back in March 2019. And since then there has been no official announcement of another television round. In spite of this, there are a lot of things that point out the decision on renewal. And below we would like to answer all your questions on the subject.

Of course you know that Kakegurui is based on the manga series of the same name, written by Homura Kawamoto, and thereby the decision on renewal mostly depends on the availability of the source material. The manga consists of eleven volumes and 56 chapters. And luckily, we have some source material for another television adaptation.

As you know the 1st season of the anime premiered on July 1, 2017. Four new volumes were issued since then, not to mention that the 7th volume has been released on the eve of the premiere, and thereby couldn't be included in the current television round of the anime.

A sophomore season debuted on April 1, 2019, and it could cover the rest volumes of the manga, excepting Kakegurui Vol. 11, as it was issued on March 22, 2019. So even if all the ten volumes of the original manga were adapted into a television series, we have at least one additional volume, which might serve a basis for Kakegurui Season 3.

Next, if we take a look at the response from viewers, a reception was mostly favorable, given a score of 7.44/10 based on over 81,000 votes on MyAnimeList. As a result, we might conclude that the target audience was completely satisfied with the 2nd television installment of Kakegurui.

Talking about the commercial success of the media franchise, it was mainly average, with about 370 BD items sold per week in 2019. But still, we regard these statistics as pretty favorable.

Summing up, given the data above, Kakegurui has a good chance for Season 3. We have a bit of the source material for another round, while viewers have appreciate the current installment of the anime. The BD/DVD sales look satisfactory. Therefore, Kakegurui Season 3 is just a matter of time. We are tracking down all the official data that arrive from the Japanese sources to inform you about the latest news.

Kakegurui Season 3 Release Date

Since we don't rule out the possibility of renewal, it's time to talk when Kakegurui Season 3 premiere might take place. As you have seen, two previous seasons of Kakegurui were released with a gap of two years. So it would be naive to suppose that Kakegurui Season 3 could happen next year. Given the current schedule of the anime series, it would be fair to assume that Kakegurui Season 3 is set to premiere on January or even July 2021.

Of course guys, the data above is nothing but our forecast. We are looking forward to any official news from the MAPPA studio. Once we have some actual news about Kakegurui Season 3, we will update this page. And of course, as soon as the studio sets a specific release date for Kakegurui Season 3, we will update this section. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
