Are you looking for a release date for Kakegurui Season 3, or are you wondering if this anime will even get a new season?
We will fill you in on everything you need to know about Kakegurui Season 3 in 2021 in this article. You will also learn when you may be able to watch the long-awaited new season.
Kakegurui is a Netflix Original anime based on a manga of the same name. The story takes much of the narrative from the anime but it has been adapted with some characters exclusive to the series. Kakegurui season 2 aired last year and since then every day has been waiting for the release of its third season.
An official announcement regarding season 3 has not been made. This is because anime renewals typically depend on two factors, popularity and source material.
Greatly, Kakegurui remains an incredibly popular show with millions of viewers around the world. The series is currently scoring a 75% on Rotten Tomatoes, 7.2/10 on IMDb, and 7.46 on MyAnimeList which is certainly popular enough to merit a third season.
Then we have the source material the manga series is still ongoing with volume 13 (All 75 chapters) releasing back in June in Japan and likely releasing in English later this year. It is highly probable that Kakegurui’s popularity around the world will be enough to convince the animation studio to produce another season. However, they will likely have to wait until they feel like enough source material in the manga has been published which could hold up an official renewal.
There has been a sale of more than 15,000 copies. DVD/Blu-Ray discs contribute to around 15-20% of the revenue for an anime series. This may sound un-profitable and also made many animes a failure.
Anime Series can promote a lot of products making it a booming industry. Some of the products which were sold as merchandise were:
We could expect season 3 to be officially announced sometime in (early) 2022. Unfortunately, Kakegurui is yet to be officially renewed for a third season by either MAPPA, Netflix, or the series Japanese networks. But last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the production process was not even started. The series would air in Japan first for roughly 12 weeks. After that, there is a delay of a few months before the next season arrives on Netflix.
Based on the release pattern that previous seasons have released, chapters every month and volume 2 or 3 times a year. Assuming the series debuts in either the Winter or Spring will dictate a Summer or Fall release.
There is no official news from the creator’s side regarding season 3, so we don’t know about the final characters we will see in season 3. But still, there are main lead characters that will surely be there:
- Mary Saotome
- Yumeko Jabami
- Ryoto Suzui
- Runa Yomozoki
- Mizari Ikishima
Since there has been no official announcement of the renewal for a third season, there has been no chance of a trailer as of now. I’m going to share the official trailer of season one the might help you to imagine something about season 1 If any new updates happen, we’ll let you know.
There are a lot of people who love watching Japanese Anime shows in English. Well, people who want to watch the show in English and in English dubbed episodes of Kakegurui season 1 & 2 are available on AnimeList and Funimation.
I heard a lot of good stuff about it, so it will be interesting to see how good it will be. But if you can’t wait any longer, and you want to learn what happens next after the anime in the story, read the light novel.
