Owari No Seraph or in plain English Seraph of the end is Japanese manga which was, as it is often the case, made into an Anime. Manga edition was serialized by Shueisha since September the third of 2012 in monthly shōnen manga magazine Jump SQ. After its growth in popularity anime adaptation was what followed.
Owari no Seraph had two seasons from which the first one gained most of the popularity while the second one did not meet expectations or standards set by the first one. Nevertheless, Season 3 is widely expected to happen. First estimates claimed that Owari No Seraph would happen before the end of 2016, but now it’s obvious that didn’t happen, so the question remained. When is season 3 going to be delivered?!
There is no official date set for Seraph of the end Season 3 release, but one thing is sure there will be a sequel. So, to determine Season three launch date we didn’t use Internet rumors or Reddit theories but rather a simple math. First two season which consisted of twelve episodes each were aired in the same year. The first season was aired from April till June and the second one from October to December. The show was derived from the first forty-one chapter of the manga. Parts of the anime storyline which surpassed the chapters of the manga were personally written by mangaka Takaya Kagami.
Seraph of the end Season 3 release date
After the airing of first two season manga continued its monthly publishing and so far there are fifty-three chapters available. By simply dividing anime episodes into manga chapters we can conclude that twelve episodes of anime take twenty or twenty-one chapter of the manga. So we need at least eight more manga chapters to gather material for another season of Owari no Seraph anime.
Being a monthly edition as it is Owari of the end will have the desired amount of material for anime adaptation not before the end of September. Taking into account the creating process of manga being adapted into anime, and animation process itself, we get the first possible date for the airing of Season 3. You probably figured it by yourself but the first available timeline for Owari No Seraph Season 3 to air is Anime Winter Season of 2018. That’s that folk, one long year of wait is ahead of us.
Seraph Of The End Update 06/06/2017:
As we all know Seraph Of The End manga was written by Takaya Kagami and for the purposes of anime, it was illustrated by Yamato Yamamoto with storyboards by Daisuke Furuya. Many questions regarding the sequel went their direction, but we still don’t have any official info regarding the new episodes batch.
Latest info that we have from the writer is that studio didn’t approach him for seasons 3 and even if they did it wouldn’t happen anytime soon as he want’s to postpone it further. One of the possibilities is the end of 2018 or the beginning of 2019.
We already mentioned that at this moment there isn’t enough of material for the new season and this is the main cause of this delay. Another reason is the fact that the writer want’s to create more material and for the manga to be in front of anime when it comes to the story. It is quite logical as we could see few of the animes gain more popularity than manga plus many fans stop buying manga after anime is launched especially if the animated version goes forward with the story.
Lack of material for the sequel is not the only thing that is preventing the anime to be continued. It is a well-known fact that the first season was a lot more popular and that it received a lot better ratings than it was with the sequel. Something like this needs to be prevented with the Seraph Of The End Season 3, and the creator want’s it to be a lot better than previous one.
In conclusion, when it comes to Seraph Of The End Season 3 release date we could expect to see it at the beginning of 2019, and it sounds like the best option for the studio and people in charge.
