However, this does not stop the show from getting all the requests for renewal. How soon can we get a new season? Will there be a production delay? All your questions have been answered here.
When is In/Spectre Season 3 coming out? Sooner than you expect! Better known as Kyokou Suiri, this series is one of the well-known supernatural novel series of the 2010s. Kyo Shirodaira is the writer of the story, and Hiro Kiyohara and Chasiba Katase are the illustrators. The novel series did not get a light novel. Instead, it was published in a manga in 2015. As for In/Spectre, the anime television by Brain’s Base was released in 2020. Now, everyone waits for the third season in a row.
In/Spectre Season 3: Renewal Status
After a successful first season, the second season got its renewal seemingly late. For clarity, the first season released the first episode on January 11, 2020. And it bid farewell on March 28, 2020. Six months later, the showrunners announced that Season 2 was in production. However, the production process went on for three years straight. With this, the sequel launched on January 9, 2023, after particular delays. The airing date of the last episode was March 27, 2023.
Point in case, after this date, there has been no announcement of the new season. All in all, In/Spectre Season 3 has not been renewed as of the time of writing. However, this certainly does not mean that the show will not be getting a new installment. The speculation of the chances of getting a new season has been analyzed well enough in the subheads ahead.
Reception So Far
Twenty-four episodes later, the overall scoring and reception of the show have been consistent. The chatter on Twitter and Reddit about the show’s new season seems to be heating up. As soon as the last episode aired, there was an instant demand for the latest one. And fans continue to ask for the next one. The same has been projected in the official numbers of the show. Here, the overall IMDb rating of the first and second is 6.5 stars out of 10. In addition, more than two million people have rated the show on MAL.
The current standing in the ranks is 6.91 stars. As more fans join the course, there will be updates on the popularity ranking and viewership as well. 2 Million is a number that no studio can ignore. With this, the sale of manga is also over two million in print. The manga was also nominated for Best Shonen Manga in 2018 in the 42nd annual Kodansha Manga Award. With this, the chances of seeing a new season certainly increase.
A lot of the fans understand that it is too soon to demand a new season. Somewhere, there is a silent surety that In/Spectre Season 3 will be renewed very soon. Evidence of this anticipation is right here for you.
It was Studio Brain’s Base that took up the animation project in 2020. The company is known for Spice and Wolf, Baccno, and To Your Eternity. The company has a history that dates back to 1996. The first anime from the company came out in 2002. And since then, over a hundred projects have come out so far. With this, this company also releases only two to three shows per year. The second season of In/Spectre and Firefighter Daigo Resuer in Orange are listed for 2023.
This means that the slate for this year is full already. What this does not imply is the fact that the show will not be announced this year. It will certainly not be released in 2023. Well, production is yet to commence at this production company. So, when can Brain’s Base start working on In/Spectre Season 3? The sections ahead answer all your questions.
In/Spectre Season 3: What Will Happen in Season 3?
The world of In/Spectre is that of two separate dimensions. These are the youkai world and the world of humans. One fine day, Kotoko Iwanaga gets the opportunity to become the God of Wisdom, essentially becoming the mediator between the two worlds. Little did she know that this was the biggest mistake of her life. And now, she is no longer resolving the issues of her friends. Instead, she is solving the conflicts between the two worlds.
This is when she meets with Kurou Sakuragawa, who is going through a breakup phase. What transpires is a friendship that is here to stay. But love blooms between the two, and Kotoko is quick to sense some supernatural appearances around her. The story leaps of two years only to show that a woman with a weapon is killing people. A detective story begins right here. The second season is mostly about separate cases playing out, leading to a collective ending.
In the last episode, “A Lucky Dat At the Unagi Restaurant,” two unknown friends are seen enjoying a quiet dinner. However, the peace is soon disrupted when the talk of the murder fills the hall. This was the cue to a cliffhanger episode. This is the case that our duo is to handle in the first episode of In/Spectre Season 3. Moreover, separate cases are to come their way, only to create a web of cases, plots, and dangers in front of them.
Is There Enough Source Material?
A lot of anime-only fans will be surprised to know that there is no light novel for the IS series. Instead of this, the original novel series was adapted to the manga. For context, the original novel series by Kyo Shirodaira and Hiro Kiyohara first came out in 2011. It has a total of seven volumes. Chasiba Katase, one of the illustrators on the project, then came out with the manga series in 2015. Kodansha’s Shonen Magazine R backed the launch. So far, this text has a total of eighteen volumes.
Of these 18, only six have been used in the first two seasons. With this, there is more than enough material for In/Spectre Season 3. In fact, there is material that can back six seasons in total. However, such extensive roll-outs only take place when stories are highly popular both in Japan as well as the West. All in all, the third season has a clear path for renewal. But the same cannot be said for the fourth and the fifth one.
In/Spectre Season 3: Reddit Updates & Theories
A lot of Reddit is speaking about the brilliance of the second season. But it was particularly the ending that did not strike chords with the audience. A lot of the fans thought that this was yet another ‘murder with a twist’ ending to a show that was otherwise brilliant in a lot of ways. There is also the talk of the misplaced pacing in the second season. Most of the fans appreciate the first one for the slow-paced character development and simmering conversations.
But the second one certainly seemed rushed and out of proportion in a lot of places. The second season was a bunch of smaller arcs that did not make the impact that fans were looking for. None of the cases make for the central theme of it. And there is a POV issue in the latest season as well. All in all, only the intellect of the MC was something that garners praise. But the season is tagged average on a lot of the slates.
In/Spectre Season 3: Release Date
Concluding from the points mentioned above, In/Spectre Season 3 has all the chances of coming back. But judging by the fact that Season 2 has only ended in March 2023. Thus, it is not coming out this year. It will take some time for the creators to commence the production process by the end of this year. And 2024 will be dedicated to the animation and production of the next 12 episodes. With this, official updates will start coming out from the Fall 2024 slate. By the 2025 Spring months, the release dates will be open for airing In/Spectre Season 3.
Muse Communication will air all the episodes as before. This section will be updated as soon as there are any more official announcements from the makers. Thus, keep an eye on The Anime Daily to get all the details right here.
