Season 3

  • When season 3 will be released?

    Will there be season 3?

    • No.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

        Loading editor
    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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?
