Adapted from a light novel of the same name, The Asterisk War is a fantasy and magic anime with the addition of harem romance. A-1 Pictures, the studio that has pretty much a consistent record for the past few years, is taking full responsibility for adapting the greatest work of Yuu Miyazaki.
The first two seasons of The Asterisk War have been around for five years now and many fans have been patiently waiting for The Asterisk War Season 3. Will there be a third season to finally end the long wait from the fans?
Is The Asterisk War Season 3 possible?
As mentioned earlier, The Asterisk War hasn’t received any sequels for the past five years. The Asterisk War Season 3 is currently unannounced, but there are still rays of hope for a third season. Why?
In the anime business, anything is possible, especially if it brings a certain company/studio a considerable amount of profit. If we apply it to The Asterisk War, the only way for any studio to consider adapting the third season is if they see a great amount of profit from it. So, to make a third season possible, all we can do right now is to support the official releases of the manga, light novel, and merchandise. By doing that, any studio would want to serve us a third season.
Is there enough material for The Asterisk War Season 3?
As the light novel is still publishing up to this date, there are still plenty of volumes left for an adaptation. The anime has only covered up to volume 6, while the light novel is way ahead at 15 volumes. If you have already finished the anime and want to continue by reading the light novel, it is suggested that you should start at the sixth volume, as the anime has slight alterations to the original story.
There is also a manga if you find it boring to read the light novel. Unfortunately, the manga is way behind the anime, as it leaves off at the 12th episode of the anime, but still, if you’re into The Asterisk War series so much, reading the manga will be worth every second of your time.
