    When season 3 will be released?

    Will there be season 3?

      Loading editor
    • No.

        Loading editor
    • There might be, but it's extremely unlikely. Two one-cour seasons seems to be it for light novel adaptations, nowadays, particularly of the harem genre.

        Loading editor
    • All in good time.

      Genre means nothing. Furthermore, High School DxD has had three seasons with one on the way. I seriously doubt DAL is any different.

    • To love ru had 4 seasons. Dxd has planted for season 4. So we can hope DAL will have season 3.

        Loading editor
    • To Love Ru and Highschool DxD are more popular than DAL, though

      Which makes no difference, even if what you believe is true.

    • Looking at DVD sales will tell you that ^

      DVD sales are what shows there is demand for an anime, and since Date A Live II flopped due to the rushed production...DAL is behind shows that did sell well, like To Love Ru, and Highschool DxD when it comes to getting a new season, because the producers see that and think 'Right. So, Highschool DxD season three sold really well, and Date A Live II sold...not as well. Date A Live III might recover...but it's more likely that Highschool DxD Season 4 will make more money, so let's go with that.

      Full Metal Panic, though, is proof that a show can recover from an under-performing season a few years later - it's getting a new season soon, right? Plus, DAL is really popular - not as popular as those above, but still really popular. If fans keep buying the figures they keep pumping out, and the books, we could still easily get a Date A Live III - hell, Infinite Stratos is basically nothing more than a joke at this point, and aren't there rumours that that getting a season three? If IS3 is a thing, anything can be.

    • What about the movie? Surely that would help DAL regain public interest.

      BD/DVD sales (which have been since day one only a small percentage of the total revenue) do not matter anymore, thanks to streaming revenue (which has been rising year after year) (and considering that BD/DVD revenue in the entire anime industry has been on the decline for the past few years, who can argue?).

      Oh, and the movie sold well in BD/DVD alone in its first two weeks: Around 12,000 units.

    • Hopefully, season 3 will have a 20-episode order so that they can adapt Origami's story.

      10 is enough to adapt volumes 8-11, including Origami's story.

    • Even with sales, you guys are forgeting that there needs to be a studio to back up the production. AIC Plus, the studio behind the first season went bankrupt. While Production IMS was made from leftover ACI Plus staff, and made the second season, the company still hasn't produced anything truly astonishing. Beside IMS hasn't made a new series since September of last year.

      If you guys want to complain about season 3, IMS has a website.

        Loading editor
    • For future reference, AIC (not ACI) is still going strong (it has recently done the new Tenchi Muyo Ryo Ohki OVA series).

      Furthermore, IMS was only in its early stages then. They can only improve with time, which is exactly what they need for their next project (whatever it is).

      And the decision is not up to the animation production company. It is up to the author of the source material.

        Loading editor
    • Huh, I'm glad to see AIC back, even if it is an OVA. Thanks for the heads up, that was an embarrassing typo.

      The production studio handles most of the workload and organization for the development of the final product and has a lot of say during the process. That includes collaborating with the music composers, seiyus, and etc. If it was based solely on the author's decision, then I think a lot more sequels would be animated. After all, it's more free publicity for his work. 

      The criteria for a second season is based on a question I suppose. Did the anime sell and was it popular?

      Most people people point to DVD revenues as the primary indicator. Streaming does provide revenue, but its still a relative new phenomena of the new decade. By comparison, DVD sales have had a longer history in Japan I suppose. Similarly to how most people point to physical copy sales rather than bookwalker. Japan is old fashion in regards to their publication companies.

      It seems nowadays, anime companies seem to be churning out new light novel adaptations one after the other, to simply use trial by error until something popular appears.

      In the end, rather than complain on the wikia (as they have done in the past), I'd wish people would take the incentive to mobilize to achieve what they want. Heck, it's through social media that things like Toonami came back on air and Fooly Cooly is getting a second season. I mean it's good to show your support by buying merchandise, but I suppose the next step would be to actively promote and endorse what you like on the new forms of media available to us.

    • BD/DVD sales have been on the decline for the past few years, and streaming was a major factor in all this.

      Face it. BD/DVD revenue (which is a very small percentage of the entire merchandising revenue, no matter how high they are) is not enough anymore. Streaming is the new cash cow.

        Loading editor
    • Sorry for my ignorance but AIC is back?  Seriously? Wow, that is something I wasn't expecting at all. Leaving aside the sales issue and concentrating on DAL and the studios, IMS and AIC are basically the same studio and now that AIC is back, I've got this weird feeling all over. What do you guys think this could mean to the franchise? Apparently, IMS is still alive and working on OVAs too, accurately Haifuri. 

      Whatever the case is, if AIC is back then it has to step up just like IMS did back in the day, they're probably understaffed now that most of the staff works for IMS. I wonder what could happen?

    • By any means i think the problem is almost the same as one of the famous Tittle, To Aru Majutsu.

      Although Season 3 were hinted months ago, the Second season was 6 years ago and their latest Franchise installment was a Movie which is on 2013, 4 years ago.

      Meanwhile Date a Live II was out 3 Years ago followed by movie which is 2 years ago?

      Considering the declining value of the franchise it might take another years until it hinted by the studio itself.

      If theres similiar genre that would be Highschool DxD.

      This time they already announced 4th Season, The series is more bold than Date a Live (might be a reason it is well funded).

      If theres something to help current state of anime tittle selling or franchise is selling streamed anime in Steam which recently added. (I was shocked when this thing got introduced)

      Another issues that caused it was the distribution, I cant find a certain light novel in my country, which leave the only option to Order it from outside online. Same thing happened to BD version of the anime. Even the simplest method of athorized steam version region banned some country.

      I tried to discuss with some people that most of anime will likely ended up on 2nd season of adaptation, Rarely seen the 3rd Season unless it is very famous or have alot of spinoff with known author or studio that agree to adapt it each year or two.

      In Date A Live case i think whole anime adaptation will take about 5-8 season if it ended in LN Vol 18-24. and that if the adaptation took about 3-4 LN/Season unless they wanted to make it 24 or more Episodes/Season which lessened the total season.

      Talk about Studio IMS that adapted it, They sure have alot of Harem Genre in their hands.

    • That was KonoSuba, and nothing is confirmed.

        Loading editor
    • Still, the main point is that anime adaptions can be used just for advertising purposes just to sell the light novels.

        Loading editor
    • Not even close (if that were true, a lot of series based on manga and/or light novel series would only have had one season). High School DxD has had three seasons so far, with one on the way. Do not expect DAL (or KonoSuba, for that matter) to be any different.

    • Unfortunately, we don't know what will happen. The best we can do keep our hopes up.

      I discussed this with some MAL forumers. He gave me this link

      http://goboiano.com/heres-money-actually-made-anime/

      The chance of getting 3rd Season once the LN is ended is literally nonexistent.

      Most of long running LN will likely end up on 2nd season rarely 3rd and onwards. (judging from my perspective in anime history 3rd season is uncommon to rare).

      DxD get 4th because the sales and studio with alot of fans supporting it.

      The moment i realise this is the moment i almost lose my hope that there will be an adaptation for some LN or Manga, not to mention studios that have alot of Debts and went bankrupt.

      There might be an adaptation in years but some.. left for dead before the story concluded.

        Loading editor
    • But the LN has not ended, and it will not for another 3-5 years at the least.

      And considering how well the film sold in BD/DVD alone, only time will tell (and who knows when Crunchyroll (among other streaming sites) will start streaming the series to add to the revenue?).

    • Honestly, the fact that a third season hasn't been confirmed just reeks of anime studios profitting off readymade twelve-episode anime adaptations of manga and light novels, every season of the year. Repeat ad infinitum and you have a quick way to earn money. And let's not even mention that these anime are often the victims of executive meddling that leaves out important elements from the source material just so that the story can fit into a twelve-episode format. These day, you hardly see an anime studio taking a chance to adapt a high-profile light novel or manga and give the creator full control over the project, just to prove they can be auteur-friendly.

      I remember seeing a link in the trending articles section about why Attack on Titan's second season is only 12 episodes, and it mentioned that recently most anime are facing a similar issue due to possibly not having the money to make seasons longer than that in recent days.

      Would that have a similar issue on reducing the chances of DAL getting a third Season?

    • AOT is different.

    • If they decide to give 24 episodes it would give same issue as konosuba did, everyone wont be buying the manga and wait anime to release the 3rd season.

      Following the same issues SnK is lacking source material and they already got alot of fans supporting it , Being one of the most famous anime in past few years its likely to be budget problems.

      It wouldnt be suprising if DAL will be pcked by other studio.

      Iv'e been waiting for so long like 3 years straight just to have the 3rd season. But uhh, I honestly don't read the manga at all :(((

    • Me either. I've haven't read it's manga in my life. To be honest

        Loading editor
    • One reason I think they should make a 3rd season is brand recognition. Let's face it, with the advent of video-streaming services like Netflix and Crunchyroll, people are more likely to watch anime than read manga or light novels these days. As much as people give grieve anime studios for producing filler episodes, at least that gives impression they want to keep the anime on a regular broadcast. Confirming a 3rd season for Date A Live would be a good way to make a quick profit.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, but unlike anime, manga and light novels are cheaper to produce.

      At minimum for manga and light novels, you have four people working on them; the writer, the illustartor, the editor, and the publisher.

      For anime, you have a director, a couple of producers, a team of writers to adapt the material, voice actors for each character, illustrators to draw the characters, scenes, etc., SFX staff for higher specs and matching the audio to the visuals, music composers and players. There's a lot more, but you get the idea.

        Loading editor
    • You have a point there tho.....oh and uhh, also, I was wondering if Date A Live will also have it's live action movie compared to other anime that already had it's live action :/
