Kamisama Kiss is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Julietta Suzuki and serialized by Hakusensha in the shōjo manga magazine Hana to Yume. At the time of its debut in 2012, Kamisama Hajimemashita was a hit with fans and critics alike. The anime soon returned with a second season in 2015. However, this is the last time we’ve heard of the series. Therefore, it is finally time to ask some serious questions. Will there be a Kamisama Kiss Season 3? Here’s everything you need to know.
Looking at the popularity of the anime, the chances of its return seem quite high. After years of its release, the series is still talked about. Therefore, fans can watch their favorite anime again. Although Kamisama Kiss Season 3 is not coming back anytime soon.
Will there be Kamisama Kiss Season 3?
Kamisama Kiss is originally a manga series in 2008. A few years later, TMS Entertainment (Spirit Chronicles, Dr. Stone, ReLIFE, Kamisama Kiss, Rent-A-Girlfriend, Megalo Box and Rent-a-Girlfriend) decided to produce animated adaptations of the famous romantic manga. Thus, a 13-episode anime season debuted on screens in 2012, after the second episode in 2015. Despite its popularity, the animation studio did not produce Kamisama Kiss Season 3.
One of the main reasons for the delay must be the end of the manga series. Kamisama Hajimemashita concluded in 2016 with his twenty-fifth volume of the manga. Therefore, after that, there is no more source material to promote the anime. Most of the anime adaptations were produced in order to increase sales of his manga series or light novel. That said, Kamisama Kiss Season 3 is not renewed as it has no original content to promote.
However, according to history, several animated shows have survived a lack of promotion of the source material. Given the high demand and buzz it has created, the anime could have another chance on the screens. So, fans don’t need to lose all hopes just yet as it has happened multiple times that anime shows are renewed after multiple years.
On the other hand, fans worried about the 6-year break should also be relieved. Unlike American television series, animated series can take some time to return to the screens. In fact, some anime like One Punch Man and Log Horizon took more than four to five years to make a comeback. Therefore, there is still room for Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3.
Is There Material For Kamisama Kiss Season 3?
The Kamisama Kiss manga series consists of 25 volumes in total. The first two seasons and four OVA episodes of the anime cover the first seventeen volumes of the manga. Therefore, the new anime episode still has about eight volumes to adapt. This amount of source material can create more than 20 new episodes of the animated show.
However, it is important to note that the last episode of OVA has completed the entire plot of the series. Despite having more source material for the adaptation, TMS Entertainment (Dr. STONE Season 3, Rent-A-Girlfriend Season 2 & Baki Season 4) gave the anime a satisfying ending. Still, according to the story, the studio still has room to expand the plot to create Kamisama Kiss Season 3.
Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3: What will happen next?
The story of the popular anime revolves around a high school student Nanami Momozono. Due to her father’s constant play, Nanami is in debt and thrown out of her apartment. Fortunately, because of his good deed, the earthly deity of a sanctuary, Mikage gives him his house to live on. The main character is then named earthly deity and meets Tomoe, familiar with Mikage, who is a yokai. A relationship between a human and a fox demon is taboo, but Nanami and Tomoe begin to fall in love.
At the end of the last OVA episode, Nanami and Tomoe finally get married. On the other hand, Akura Ou is still in Kirihito’s body. Kamisama Kiss Season 3 could revolve around the main couple and the issues they face after their wedding. Other villains may appear and Nanami may fall into dangerous circumstances. In addition, the story can become much more complicated with the appearance of Nanami’s father. He is still in debt and could wreak havoc on his yokai son-in-law.
Kamisama Season 3 Release Date
As mentioned above, TMS Entertainment can resume the productions of Kamisama Hajimemashita Season 3. The series may take some time to complete the production process. Even if work starts this year, the anime might not arrive until 2022 or 2023. For the time being, no official confirmation has been made. However, we are committed to updating this article as soon as the news arrives.
