Season 3 of the anime series is about to conclude this week, will there be season 4?
DanMachi, also known as Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, is an anime series based on a Japanese light novel series written by Fujino Ōmori and illustrated by Suzuhito Yasuda.
The anime TV adaptation first aired in 2015 and has since gathered several international fans who patiently wait for each new episode.
Season 3 just dropped on Crunchyroll in October, and with the season about to conclude this week, fans are already wondering if season 4 is happening.
Here's what we know so far.
Season 3 has just released in October 2020, thanks (but no thanks) to the Covid-19 pandemic that delayed the anime series from its original July 2020 schedule.
As of this writing, DanMachi is yet to get a season 4 renewal.
DanMachi is not really among the best anime out there, but it has its unique charm that captured the viewer’s attention with every new episode.
Although the anime series only gets an average rating, it still somehow managed to get an active fanbase, who still hopes for a fourth season.
DanMachi renewals are often announced towards the end of each season, and with Season 3 about to end this week on Crunchyroll, we are expecting to find out if the show will indeed return for season 4 or not.
The anime series is yet to get a renewal for season 4. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, DanMachi had an active history of releasing new seasons and OVA in the past, sometimes with only a few months gap between each project.
The TV adaptation by J.C. Staff premiered in Japan on April 4 to June 27, 2015, followed by an OVA released on December 7, 2016.
A film titled Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion was released on February 15, 2019. Then fans were treated to season 2 of the anime series from July 13 to September 28, 2019.
On September 27, 2019, a day before the anime series ran the last season 2 episode, a third anime season and an OVA episode were announced to be underway.
As mentioned, season 3 was supposed to air in July, but the pandemic delayed the release date to October 2020.
Without the pandemic in the picture, it would've been possible for season 4 to drop next year based on the previous project's schedule.
DanMachi is set in a fictional city of Orario, where the gods come down to seek excitement, limiting their divine powers to experience the hardships of the mere mortals.
Somewhere in Orario exists an underground labyrinth called dungeons, a dangerous place filled with monsters but also loaded with treasures for those who could defeat them.
Adventurers who could defeat the monsters could take treasures and crystal shards, which they could use to craft magic items or use as currency in the real world.
Among these adventurers is the protagonist Bell Cranel, a 14-year-old solo explorer under the goddess Hestia.
Bell is in love and is searching for a skilled swordswoman who once saved his life, unaware that other girls in the dungeon, including goddess Hestia herself, are also slowly falling for him.
Season 3 has broadened the anime series' plotline, bringing in new characters and stories that fans haven't expected.
With Season 3 still ongoing as of this writing, it is impossible to predict what season 4 will be exactly all about. Albeit, it will surely revolve around Bell and his exciting adventures.
While we wait for season 4 confirmation for DanMachi, let us enjoy the season 3 trailer.
