If you are a fan of this popular Japanese anime and have not heard the great news, well, 2020 will finally see the release of the long-awaited third series.
Before we reveal the release date, let’s take a look back at the story so far.
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon: From Hit Manga To Hit Anime
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon, sometimes called DanMachi, is a Japanese anime series that was written by Fujino Ōmori. It was illustrated by Suzuhito Yasuda.
It originally started life out as a novel series that was then turned into a manga. The original series was published in January of 2013 and was rapidly adapted and released as a manga on August 2, 2013.
The manga was both a critical and commercial triumph. So much so that the series was commissioned for an anime adaptation within a year.
The anime version of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon was released to much fanfare on April 4th, 2015.
It won over a huge number of new fans and even managed to spawn a spin-off series called Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka Gaiden: Sword Oratoria. This aired from mid-April until the start of July in 2017.
Everything when it comes to this hit franchise turned to gold. So, it was no shock that it was slated for a second series that was released in July 2019.
DanMachi Season 2 ran for a total of 12 episodes and wrapped up on September 28, 2019.
The second series was even bigger than the first, now fans of the series are desperate for another to help them get their fix.
It has barely been a few months since the last series concluded and already fans are lighting up the internet trying to find any information on DanMachi season 3.
The Story So Far
DanMachi’s plot follows a 15-year-old boy called Bell Cranel who lives in the fictional city of Orario.
Orario is not like other cities. It sits above a maze of catacombs that are inhabited by dangerous monsters. Known locally as “the Dungeon”, the catacombs serve as a place where the brave venture to do battle with these monsters.
Groups of these warriors are called Familias. They band together to try to increase their chances of making it out alive.
These groups don’t wander down just for a fight either. Inside the catacombs lay numerous treasures and rewards. One particularly sought after treasure are shards of crystal that can be cut from the monsters’ dead bodies. These shards can be used to make new weapons or exchanged for gold.
With so much adventure and excitement to be had, Bell finds himself dreaming of becoming a hero.
After he meets a goddess called Hestia, she gives him special magical powers to help him become a great adventurer.
Assisted by Hestia, Bell heads underground into the catacombs to see if he can survive the Dungeon and win fame and riches as a great hero.
DanMachi Season 3: Spoilers Alert
Given just how successful the series has been, both in its native Japan and the United States, it seems almost inevitable that there would be a third series.
To start with, several plot developments still need to be wrapped up from season 2. What will happen with Ares, for example, who spent much of the end of season 2 in the background?
If the manga is anything to go by then you can expect a lot of new characters and adventures in season 3.
There is expected to be a new god who will take control of what challenges Bell faces. The brother of Barca Perdix will almost certainly make a big impact on the third series. Dix Perdix is bigger and better than any of the villains that we have seen so far, so his appearance will be interesting.
Other characters who are expected to make it into season three include Alise Lovell, Gran, and Wiene, who will bring her friends Lyd, Aries, Gryuu, Four, Cliff, Ray, Gros, Laura, Asterius, Ranye, Fear, and Aude. Ikelos, another god character, is also expected to feature.
The studio behind the series has managed to keep potential plot developments a secret. We can only go by how the manga has progressed to guess at the kinds of character and plot developments we might see.
No matter whether these are right or wrong, what is certain is that the third season of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon are not going to be disappointed.
So when can we watch season 3?
Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon season 3 will be released starting in July 2020.
Congratulations everyone, your long wait is almost over.
