The Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest Season 3 has been greenlit!
The news was announced during The Arifureta OVA Advance Screening & Talk Show held at Shinjuku Piccadilly Cinema in Tokyo on September 10, 2022.
A brand new key visual to commemorate the announcement was also revealed:
Pictured are the Arifureta MC Hajime and Yue; a silhouette of a mysterious rabbit is seen in the background. This may suggest that Season 3 may take place in The Haltina Sea of Trees, but we’ll still have to wait for future updates.
Just yesterday, anime news leakers Sneaky and Sugoi LITE both claimed that Arifureta Season 3 is in production and that the official announcement will be made public soon… and there we have it!
The first season of the anime series aired in 2019 (13 episodes) and was followed by the second season in 2022 (12 episodes). The Arifureta OVA pre-screening event took place yesterday, as mentioned above; the OVA will premiere on September 25, 2022.
The OVA episode is bundled with a special edition of light novel Volume 13, which is ending the main story.
