The announcement of the anime TV sequel was made shortly after the second season ended in September 2021.

“The third season of the anime Iruma-kun is coming! I’m so happy!” said the original creator Osamu Nishi. “The first series was bright and fun, and the second was weird and hot, so I can’t wait to see what kind of world the third series will bring! I’ll be screaming in front of the TV again!”

“The third season begins with the new school year set after the end of the second season.
And the new test is the Harvest Festival!” said director Makoto Moriwaki in response the production decision.

The director then went on to give some spoilers for the upcoming Mairimashita! Iruma-kun Season 3.

“Gather ingredients in the giant sea of trees to get points. Each of the Abnormal class has their own unique masters. The appearance of a new rival with strong magic, and a character that I don’t know if he’s a rival or not. What, Iruma’s going to the next stage? What, is he going to separate from Azu and Clara? You won’t want to take your eyes off this one! Look forward to it!”

The anime is being produced by animation studio Bandai Namco Pictures with production provided by Japanese broadcaster NHK.

The main staff for Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 hasn’t been announced yet. The entire main staff for the first season returned for the second season so it’s likely that they will return for the third season.

For the first two seasons, director Makoto Moriwaki (Associate Producer for Yuri!! On Ice) was helming the project. Writer Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (Girls’ Last Tour anime) was handling the series composition. Composer Akimitsu Honma (Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku) created the music. Artist Satohiko Sano (Talentless Nana) was the character designer.

The first two seasons both had two cours. What’s a “cour,” you might ask? For those unfamiliar with the lingo, a “cour” is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

The first season had 23 episodes that released in Fall 2019 through Winter 2020. The second season premiered on April 17, 2021.

Since the third season has 21 episodes, it will once again be two cours and the finale episode will release in Winter 2023.

Crunchyroll is streaming the new anime episodes with English subtitles as they air on Japanese TV. The Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun English dub for the first season was released in early 2020.

This article provides everything that is known about Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 (Mairimashita! Iruma-kun 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.

Why the Mairimashita! Iruma-kun Season 3 release date was predicted for late 2022

As of the last update, NHK, Bandai Namco Pictures, or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the exact Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 release date. However, it’s been confirmed that Mairimashita! Iruma-kun Season 3 is coming out in October 2022.

Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information.

The anime has received a good response from anime fans with Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun reviews happily extolling the virtues of both seasons. It does not have much competition since it’s one of the few anime comedies in recent years that is not also an isekai.

(Or, is it? If you think about it, Iruma was transported to another world, the Netherworld, right from the get-go. Instead of being Truck-kun’ed, he was SulliVAN’ed. Pardon the pun. Ahem.)

From a financial perspective, the first Blu-Ray/DVD disc volume of Season 1 only sold 391 in its first week in Japan. However, the anime is regularly featured in the top 10 of Crunchyroll’s Popular Anime list, with the second season often being higher than notable competitors like The Slime Diaries, To Your Eternity, Higehiro, Tokyo Revengers, and How NOT To Summon a Demon Lord.

Producer NHK seems to be setting up the series for annual releases. The second season was teased by the first season’s finale, and the second season’s finale episode also teased Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun 3.

Since the third season was announced on September 11, 2021, it was successfully predicted that the Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 release date would be in late 2022.

Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun manga compared to the anime

The story for the anime series is based on the Mairimashita! Iruma-kun by writer and illustrator Osamu Nishi (Hotel Helheim).

New chapters are released weekly in Akita Shoten’s Weekly Shonen Champion magazine. When the anime’s second season first premiered in April 2021, the manga series was up to Volume 21 and over 200 chapters had been released. By January 2022, the manga was up to Volume 25, which included up through Chapter 222.

A spin-off series called the Makai no Shuyaku wa Wareware da! (We Are the Main Characters of the Demon World!) manga started serializing in January 2021. As of March 2021, it was up to Volume 4.

Unfortunately, no North American publisher has licensed the rights to the official English translation for the Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun manga series.

Thankfully, there are unofficial fan-made scanlation projects. Thanks to the popularity of the anime TV series, the raw chapters have all been translated and there are weekly updates.

Some anime adaptations of manga series attempt to create panel-by-panel episodes that are absolutely faithful to the source material. While the Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun anime does make changes and reorders some events (Clara’s seduction lesson originally took place after the Cannonball Execution arc), even manga purists agree that the additions were welcome.

For example, Purson Soi, the purple-haired guy in the Misfits class, was only briefly shown in the earlier manga chapters, but he’s a background character from the beginning in the anime. Purson continues to show up regularly even in Season 2 so spotting him is like a game of “Where’s Purson?”.

The ultimate wallpaper person Purson (Iruma must be so jealous) eventually receives his own story arc in Chapters 147 through 151 as the 13th student of the Misfits Class. He’s even the cover character for manga Volume 18. Depending on the anime’s pacing, the story arc could be adapted by the third season, but Purson’s arc is more likely to be in the first half of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 4.

Rather than resorting to filler content, the first season also spiced up the story by adding several musical numbers as surprise bonuses. Of course, it’s up to the individual whether having Clara singing is annoying or humorous.

The pacing of the first season stayed close to two chapters adapted per episode. The first season ended by adapting Chapter 43 from Volume 6.

Episode 23 served as both a bridge to the second season and an anime original conclusion that showed how Iruma had come to realize he now fits in with the people of the Netherworld. Episode 24 picked up the story with a mini-recap that was based on the beginning of manga Chapter 44.

The glaring problem with the transition between seasons was the cliffhanger ending where Lord Sullivan is mortified to be told off by an Evil Iruma. Anime-only audiences were probably given whiplash since grumpy Iruma was nowhere in sight even several episodes into the second season.

Of course, manga readers knew this was coming since Azazel Ameri and the Student Council Training arc were up next. Iruma wasn’t transformed into his wicked phase until Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 2 Episode 5.

What’s notable is that Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 2 Episode 2 upped the pacing to three chapters, 46 through 48. The anime skipped a scene where a starving Iruma was distracted by a magic circuit puzzle

Otherwise, the episode extended certain jokes and added extra scenes. The best part was when Ameri’s father Henri imagined Iruma and Ameri’s married life with “grandpa Henri” holding a baby that looked just like Lord Sullivan!

By the mid-season finale, Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 2 Episode 11, the anime was finishing up the final exams story arc.

Based on the credits showing Amy Kirio in prison, we knew ahead of time that the second season would adapt until at least Chapter 88. Since the second season only occasionally used filler content like musical numbers, the second season slightly increased the pacing for certain episodes and adapted more manga chapters despite having fewer episodes in total.

It was successfully predicted that the second season’s finale episode would reorder the timeline slightly by adapting Chapter 94 in Season 2 Episode 20.

Adapting Chapter 94 out of order makes for a more fulfilling ending to the season since it’s when the Ameri x Iruma ship first starts sailing with their first date together.

All in all, it’s predicted that the second season’s finale, Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 2 Episode 21, will find a stopping point corresponding to Volume 11: Chapter 93 and the first several pages of Chapter 95.

It’s the best stopping point since it’s the ending of the first school term. Ending with the amusement park story arc in Chapter 88 was an option, but leaving anime-only audiences hanging for a year with Chapter 88 would have been quite the cliffhanger since it’s when Iruma first asks Ameri out on a date and the next short story arc offers a better transition point.

Considering how the themes of Chapters 93 and 95 are interconnected, Chapter 93 serves as a bridge to future arcs since it has Iruma starting to think about how one becomes the Demon King… with Lord Sullivan all in favor of his beloved grandson taking the throne, of course!

That would mean Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 Episode 1 would pick up the story again in Volume 11: Chapter 95, which is also the beginning of the second saga. English-only manga readers who wish to read ahead of the anime can go to the fan translation projects.

Better yet, the manga series provides plenty of source material for Mairimashita! Iruma-kun Season 3 to be a two-cour season again. It’s predicted that the third season will end by adapting the Harvest Festival, which is the longest story arc in the entire series thus far with 38 chapters.

Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 anime TV spoilers (plot synopsis/summary)

The Misfits Class has their name for a reason. The teachers at Babyls Demon School consider them problem students.

When Iruma was in the throes of an evil cycle as Evil Iruma, he led his class to seize the Royal One, a forbidden classroom that was sealed off. Now, in order for the class to keep the Royal One, it’s being demanded that the entire class have a Demon Ranking of 4 (Daleth).

In order to pull this off, the entire class will need to perform to their utmost in the upcoming school Harvest Festival. First, the class will be treated to a special group of tutors who will help everyone power up!

During training, Iruma is assigned to Bars Robin, the green-haired teacher who is always pestering Professor Naberius Kalego.

While it’s called the Harvest Festival, it’s actually a survival test in which first-year students at Babyls compete for the harvest. The class is paired off into teams, with Iruma being paired up with gamer Shax Lied.

Everyone in the class begins gaining points, but Iruma and Shax are still stuck at 0 points by the second day. How will Iruma compete for the title of Young King at this rate?

Unfortunately, anime fans will have to wait until the Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun Season 3 release date to watch what happens next. Stay tuned!
