Log Horizon Season 3 Release Date (2020 Updated): Will the Anime Return?
The Japanese anime series, Log Horizon last aired back in 2014, and fans of the series have been desperately wanting to hear about the future of the series. Log Horizon, a novel series by Mamare Touno was illustrated by Kazuhiro Hara, and it was adapted into four manga series. The first one revolved around the original plot of the series while the other three focussed mainly on the characters of Light Novel.
Soon, the series got its anime adaptation which made its debut on 2013 and the second season ran from 2014 to 2015, however, after the second season aired, the series didn’t get renewed, and it’s already 2019, but still, there is no word on whether the anime will get its third season or not. There have been a lot of false rumors lately which claimed that the anime will get a renewal by 2019, however, it’s pretty complex when it comes to giving an anime series like this for its next season. We have brought all the latest updates and information regarding the show, so here is everything you need to know about Log Horizon Season 3.
Generally, the production house needs source materials to adapt that into an anime series and for a particular season to happen, a lot of story materials is required and the production house generally keeps a gap so as to prevent any conflict between the original source and the anime. For long-running series, if a delay happens in publishing the particular manga chapters, the anime can be delayed by creating filler episodes.
However in the case of Log Horizon, if reports are to be believed, NHK doesn’t have enough story materials to renew the series. It is said that the big hiatus between the 10th and 11th volumes of the series created this problem. The 11th volume came out in 2018 and NHK already created two seasons of Log Horizon, 25 episodes each. So, practically, for Season 3, to happen, they would require a lot of story materials from the original source.
When is Log Horizon Season 3 Release Date?
Log Horizon Season 3 will be released in October 2020 in Japan. The show is confirmed to be coming this year, and the third season of Log Horizon will release in October 2020.
While we are keeping a close eye to all the developments that are happening about the show, currently, we did not find any further details about the show even though we are in March of 2020. However, we do know that the second season concluded in 2015, and we are just waiting for the third season since then, which means, we cannot say anything with much confidence as everything gets delayed.
Additionally, the world is facing the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak which is causing huge damage in Japan, China, and South Korea, which are home to the Anime industry. Thus, a lot of shows such as Re:Zero have already been delayed, and there are chances of others getting delayed too. So, stay tuned to OtakuKart as we will keep you updated with all the details as they emerge.
