Ajin: Demi-Human is one of the most popular Japanese anime series which is adapted from a manga series of the same name. It is a dark fantasy, supernatural, and thriller genre anime series. It is produced by Polygon Pictures (“Sidonia no Kishi“) and first came out on 16 January 2016. As of now, the manga series has completed 70 chapters.
In the context of the manga, the makers announced three movies that are Ajin part 1: Shoudou, Ajin Part 2: Shoutotsu, and Ajin Part 3: Shougeki, which were released between 2015 and 2016. And then after the huge success of these three movies, it was decided to be released as an animated series with the first season Ajin: Demi-Human on 19 January 2016 and followed by a second season on 8 October 2016. And after so many years, the audience is still waiting for Ajin season 3.
Will there be Ajin Season 3?
After the second season in 2017, a movie adapted from the series was released and it is directed by Katsuyuki Motohiro which obtained a lot of critics and as well as reviews and because this anime series happened to join the group of much good reputed dark anime series such as Death Note, Ghost in a shell, etc.
After the movie’s release, it has been three years, and still, it has not yet been confirmed officially by the makers. It’s hard for the makers to plan Ajin season 3 from scratch as season 1 is the same as in the manga, but the second season was diverted from the manga. So now makers don’t have any lead on which the 3 seasons plot will decide. The second reason could be because of the covid -19 pandemic, which may have caused a delay.
Ajin Season 3 Release Date
Season 2 ends with a cliffhanger that left the fans midway; there are huge demands for Ajin season 3. The production house doesn’t release any statement for renewal of Ajin season 3 of Ajin: demi-human, but they are interested in making the 3 seasons. Netflix licensed this anime as an original series and from them also no statement has been released about the renewal of Ajin season 3.
But the stock material adequacy keeps the possibility of a new season alive. Except for disc sales, all other factors indicate that the anime will have a new season. There is no renewal yet, but since it is prepared with CG technology, the production time can take longer. We expect to see a new season of the anime in 2022, with a possible renewal soon.
Ajin Manga and Anime Difference
As the anime was adapted from the manga series, It was published in Good! Afternoon magazine by Kodansha. The manga consists of 16 volumes, was published on 6 July 2012 and ends on 5 February 2021. The manga ends with the last volume released recently. The first anime series was compiled into 13 episodes with the first 5 volumes of the manga.
But in the second season, it starts as in the manga and covers the original story but gets diverted as coming to end, which results in a different season’s finale. As the manga was still left to cover in the anime series, it creates a door for the renewal of Ajin season 3.
Expected Plot of Ajin Season 3
It’s not declared what will be the plot, from season 2 we can predict that Satou, the antagonist of the series, will agree on some obvious reports of the USA; he will be rid of US troops. For more information wait for official announcements by the makers.

Where To Watch Ajin: Demi-Human
Watch Ajin On:
Ajin: Demi-Human Action
Ajin: Demi-human presents the story of a student named Nagai Kei, who discovers he is an “Ajin” when he is fatally wounded in a traffic accident. In the world of Ajin, a small number of humans (termed “Ajin”) possess immortality and extreme regenerative abilities that trigger upon death, allowing them to completely recover from any mortal injury in a matter of seconds.
Ajin can also create “black ghosts”, highly dangerous combat-oriented entities that are only visible to other Ajin. “Black ghosts” are resistant to physical injury, exhibit extraordinary physical strength, and have sharp teeth and claws. Different “black ghosts” have varying degrees of intelligence: most are completely reliant on their Ajin for directions, and others, such as Kei’s, are more independent and likely to engage in self-initiated actions.
Consequently, Ajin is considered dangerous and inhuman by the public, and most are captured by governments. Governments claim to protect Ajin, but in reality, most use them as subjects for cruel and inhumane experiments, as their ability to completely recover from fatal wounds provides an unlimited source of organs and bodies in dangerous tests (such as live-fire weapons testing).
As a result, Ajin that have escaped from government custody (such as Satou, the main antagonist) is bent on exacting revenge from governments. Kei, however, wants no part in the emerging Ajin-human conflict but forms an agreement with Japanese governmental agents to fight against Satou in exchange for his freedom from government experimentation.
