Arifuretaor by his full name”Arifureta: from everyday to the strongest in the world” is a fantasy anime series that first aired in the summer of 2019. While many anime lovers know the series with its anime, manga lovers first met the series with a light novel published in 2015 or the novel published in 2013. The story, written by Ryo Shirakome, was animated by White Fox and met the audience on July 8, 2019. The studio, which has drawn popular anime such as Re: Zero and Goblin SlayerArifureta added. The second season of Arifureta was animated by Studio Mother, which is still very new to the industry, and aired weekly between January 13, 2022 and March 31, 202. The anime, licensed by crunchy rolls and broadcast by many local channels in Japan, is one of the most popular productions today. But will this popularity be enough for the? third season† Has the anime been renewed for a third season?
What do fans think of the second season?
There were great concerns, especially about the studio change. The fact that an experienced studio-like White Fox would not participate in the second season made them think that the visual atmosphere of the anime would be lost. However, in the second season of the anime, the animations were just as successful as in the first season, but the drawings were more successful than before. There are also differences in the lighting, and many viewers evaluated the new atmosphere of the anime positively.
For the course of the story, anime viewers are split in two. The reviews are pretty close to the second season, but there are a lot of viewers who think they can’t get the taste of the first season. Still, the unfinished finale keeps anime viewers excited about what’s to come in the third season† The character development in the first season was no longer included this season. Although the clichés show themselves from time to time, the anime has a unique atmosphere.
Will there be a third season of Arifureta?
The second season of the Arifureta anime ended on March 31, 2022, and an OVA episode then premiered on April 7, 2022. Many anime may announce a renewal for another season in the season finale. Unfortunately, we didn’t see this kind of confirmation in Arifureta’s second season finale. As of May 29, 2022at the time of writing, the anime has not yet come renewed for a third season† No word yet on a new season from light novel publisher Overlap, anime studio Studio Mother or the anime team. Fans have been waiting a long time for a renewal after the anime’s first season, and it looks like it could be happening again. However, we were almost certain that the anime would receive a new season approval during this waiting period, and our predictions were correct. Now, in light of what is known, we speculated whether the anime could get a new season. often the light novel status, financial problems and popularity determine the decision for a new season. So everything is good for Arifureta have a new season?
Light novel status in terms of a new season
The light novel from which the anime series is adapted is written by Ryo Shirakome and illustrated by Takayaki. The Overlap series has reached 12 volumes today and appears on average two volumes a year. The last part, which met the readers, appeared on January 25, 2022 and will meet the English readers digitally in the coming days.
The story through the 6th installment of the light novel series was adapted across the two seasons of the anime. The remaining source material is: 6 parts from now. Exactly half are still waiting for adjustment. It seems that there is enough source material to new season† In addition, the fact that the light novel series is still running is one of the details that amplify the possibilities of the new season.
Popularity and others
While sufficient source material is available, this alone is not sufficient. Only a few anime series have a chance for a new season, and this chance requires strong popularity. Arifureta is currently the 319th most popular anime according to Myanimelist data, and this ranking is above average. 83k people follow Arifureta’s official Twitter page† While we see that anime that gets seasonal approval usually has over 100,000 followers, this number of followers isn’t bad either. On the other hand, if we look at Google searches, we see that the searches for anime have increased with the 2nd season. For the sake of clarity, we can say that the anime series is currently more sought after than popular anime like Noragami and Goblin Slayer†
When we look at the disc sales, we see that the first part of the second season has been sold 1759 units† That is almost half of the turnover in the first season. While it appears that the targets have not been met, we have to take into account the decline in disk sales in recent years. However, it should not be ignored that the new season of Demon Killer sold over 20k in the same period. While disc sales are not going well, the financial gap here appears to have been closed by exclusive distributors. Both seasons of the anime were broadcast worldwide by the giant distributor hulu† In summary, we think the chances of a new season are high in terms of financial problems and popularity.

When is the third season of the anime?
The third season of the anime has not yet been confirmed. However, according to the estimate we made based on the above concrete parameters, the chance of a new season is relatively high. We think the anime will have one third season the coming years. However, as there is no season in production yet, we may have to wait a little longer. Given the production and renewal time, it looks like we won’t be able to see the anime’s third season sooner 2024† However, these are just guesses for now and we will update our article as more official information becomes available. Until then, we recommend that you watch anime in the same genre, Re: Zero and Grandchild of the wise man†
