The Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 3 anime TV series will have Saitama University graduate students Shinya Yukimura, Ayame Himuro, and Kotonoha Kanade figuring out a sticky love triangle as they continue to (overly) analyze their love for each other. But when will Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita Season 3 come out?
Rather than being labeled as “Season 2”, the second season extends the title with Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It: R=1-sinθ. Why the odd title? When the function is graphed it becomes the shape of a heart. Therefore, it’s likely that Science Fell in Love Season 3 could have a similar title like “Λ(x)” or “Lambda (x)” where the plotted points form a triangle.
The main staff and production studio making Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 3 hasn’t been announced yet. Producer Shunsuke Saitou has handled popular anime like Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic.
The anime’s first two seasons were produced by animation studio Zero-G, which is best known for creating Netflix’s High-Rise Invasion anime, the comedic Grand Blue anime, and One Room Season 2 and 3.
Director Tooru Kitahata has also been an assistant director on Highschool DxD Hero. Writer Michiko Yokote created the scripts with writer Rintarou Ikeda (The Seven Deadly Sins), who created the series composition. Artist Yusuke Isouchi was the character designer and Yuji Ushijima (Fairy Tail, Soul Eater) was the chief animation director.
The Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 3 OP (opening) and ED (ending) theme song music hasn’t been announced yet.

This article provides everything that is known about Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 3 (Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita Season 3) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.
Science Fell in Love Season 3 release date predictions: It all depends on the manga
As of the last update, Studio Zero-G or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 3 release date. Nor has another anime sequel been greenlit for production.
Once the news is officially confirmed, this article will be updated with the relevant information.
In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when, or if, the Science Fell in Love Season 3 release date will occur in the future.
The biggest issue is the source material. At the rate at which new manga chapters are created, it took over a year before a second season became possible. Therefore, the second season’s premiere needed to be planned for 2022.
Even in 2022 the anime still had a problem with catching up with the manga. Season 2 Episode 6 even noted how Yukimura and Himuro finally openly declaring their love for each other seemed like a season finale or the ending of the entire story. They even brought back the first season’s ED theme song! But the story actually came from manga Volume 8 and the second season’s finale came from Volume 11 (in Spring 2022, the manga series was only up to Volume 13).
Therefore, Anime Geek once again predicts that it’ll take at least a year before enough new chapters are produced, which means the Science Fell in Love Season 3 release date will be in 2024 at the earliest.
Science Fell in Love manga compared to the anime
The anime is based on the Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita anime series by writer and artist Alifred Yamamoto. Published in Flex Comix’s Comic Meteor web magazine since 2016, the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It manga series is up to Volume 13 as of June 10, 2022.
Chapters are called “Proofs” by the manga. By the end of Spring 2022, the web manga was past Chapter 70 (Proof 70).
The manga series has also spawned spin-offs such as a Japanese live-action TV drama that aired in 2018 with only several episodes. The live-action Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It movie was released in 2019.
Unfortunately, no North American publisher has licensed the official English translation for the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It manga series.
There is an unofficial scanlation project, but when Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 2 Episode 12 was released the fan-made English translation was only up to Volume 6: Chapter 31.
Coincidentally, that’s the exact chapter that corresponded to the ending of the first season. Season 2 picked up the story again in Volume 6: Chapter 32.
The first season of the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It anime TV series was a straightforward adaptation of the manga up until the ending. The first season’s finale rearranged story events in order to maximize the emotionally dramatic scene on the bridge where Yukimura and Himuro shared a kiss with the highest theoretical mood value.
The first season’s finale also pushed back an important plot beat so it could be adapted by the second season. In the manga, Naoya Shikijou originally asked Kotonoha Kanade out on a date before they left Okinawa. This important scene was the final panel of manga Chapter 31, but this confession didn’t happen in the anime until Season 4 Episode 4.
In comparison to the first season, the second season was very liberal in how it adapted the source material. Major plot points were rearranged in the timeline and even small gag scenes were shifted into a different context.
For example, the scene where a sick Himuro is so embarrassed at Kanade barging in that she hides Yukimura under her bed blanket actually came from Chapter 30. The original context was that Yukimura had just finished carrying Himuro from the bridge and he set her down on the hotel bed.
Just when it appears that the couple is about to leap to another romantic landmark, a concerned Kanade barges in and Himuro shoves Yukimura into hiding between her legs in a moment of panic. That’s when Yukimura became one with the universe.
The manga took the gag a step further since Kanade’s legs began to shift in the bed so Yukimura began to calculate how to resolve the orbits of three or more “celestial bodies”. The resulting “chaos theory” pretty much had Yukimura tangled up like a pretzel trying to avoid touching Kanade in bed.
Despite all the plot rearrangements, the anime did a good job of creating several coherent story arcs. First, the second season focused on introducing the “Attachment Phase” power couple Chris Floret and Suiu Fujiwara. Then, it began developing Kosuke Inukai and Ena Ibarada as the second main couple before resolving the main couple’s story arc in Season Episode 6.
Pushing back the Naoya x Kanade story arc allowed the anime to focus on developing her backstory and how she was unhealthily obsessed with being perceived as “normal”. Manga purists would probably debate whether or not this was an improvement on the source material, but from the perspective of anime-only audiences the story seemed to flow well.
To give you an idea how much the story arcs were rearranged, Episode 11: Science-types Fell in Love, So They Tried Getting Married was adapted from a chapter in manga Volume 10, whereas Professor Kuze’s lecture on Neutrino’s and most of the events of the festival happened in Volume 11.
Despite all the plot rearranging the adaptation pacing of the second season was similar to the first. The pacing was good, with each episode adapting a little over two chapters each (or parts of a chapter).
All in all, as predicted the ending of the second season, Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita Season 2 Episode 12, corresponded to manga Volume 11.
It’s the best stopping point since the Kanade story arc is resolved and it works as a climax since the science guy takes a stand to save the science girl from kidnapping. This plot point is also important for setting up the love triangle story of Science Fell in Love Season 3.
On the other hand, ending in this manner may have jumped the shark for many anime fans. It was just so creepy and oddly violent, especially with Kanade getting kidnapped and nearly assaulted, never mind Naoya Shikijou’s personality flip and the bloody taser torture.
The story could have resolved this serious scene with Kanade deciding to accept herself by using martial arts to beat up the punks after hearing Yukimura’s “proof you don’t have to force yourself to be normal” speech. Instead, we get this weird tonal shift where Yukimura comes to the rescue with a PowerPoint presentation…
The bad news is that when the finale was released there weren’t enough manga chapters available for creating Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Season 3. What’s more, English-only readers will need to wait on the fan translation projects to catch up in order to read ahead of the anime’s second season.
