Anime Compared To The Manga Series!
The manga series of the same title began its serialization back in 2016. It already concluded earlier this year with its 22nd volume. Viz Media is also releasing the English version of these volumes every two months, and they already published 12 volumes. Now, if we compare the manga and the anime, the first installment ended somewhere between the sixth volume. The second season began to adapt the content from the same volume and found its end at the beginning of the 12th volume. Therefore, Orange animation studio still has eleven books to create Beastars Season 3. They can even create two more seasons from the remaining content of the manga.
Beastars Season 3: Renewal Status!
At the time of writing, the makers didn’t announce anything about the renewal of this show. Whether the show will return on screens or not depends on several factors. These factors are:
Any show needs to have a decent fan base so that the producers can make a profit from the show. It doesn’t make any sense to renew the show if no one is going to watch it. Beastars is quite popular and is ranked at #666 in popularity on MyAnimeList. It also has almost 70,000 members on the same platform. These are pretty good numbers to prove the huge popularity of this anime. With great popularity comes great demand. So, it is definitely a good sign for the third season.
Along with the demand, it is important for any show to have a positive critical reception. Both the manga and the anime already got a nomination for several awards. This series received a great response from the experts. Its second season also has an impressive score of 8.03 on MAL. Plus, the manga managed to sell more than 6 million copies by March 2021. So, this factor is also in favor of Beastars Season 3.
The most important factor for any show to return is the availability of its source material. As we mentioned above, the production studio has more than ten volumes for the third season. They can easily make two more installments of the anime or make the two-cours third season.
All these factors seem to be on the side of Beastars Season 3. So, it is only a matter of time, and the show will certainly get the green flag for its third run.
Beastars Season 3: Release Date
The previous two installments of the anime were released with a gap of one and a half years. So, the fans can expect the third one to follow the same pattern as well. Therefore, Beastars Season 3 might premiere sometime in Fall 2022.
