The second season finale of this stunning anime recently ended. So, its die-hard fans have already begun to ask the whereabouts of My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3. Both the first and the second season performed brilliantly and managed to get a tremendous number of fans. Now, they want to know when they will see the third run of their favorite series. So, when will the forthcoming season premiere? Here are all the latest details.
My Next Life As A Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom, is also known as Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shika Nai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta. It is a Japanese fantasy comedy harem anime TV series. It is a remake of Satoru Yamaguchi and Nami Hidaka’s light novel series of the same title. Silver Link studio produced both the installments of this show. The anime made its debut on April 5, 2020. Its second season began to air on July 3, 2021, and now it is set to conclude on September 18.
HameFura LN Compared To The Anime
The anime series follows the storyline of the LN series that began its serialization on August 20, 2015. Since then, Satoru Yamaguchi and Nami Hidaka have released a total of eleven volumes, and the LN series is still on the run. This anime adaptation is like a streamlined version of the manga series. It followed the same outline, but it did change some events. However, these changes didn’t make any significant change in the plotline. The production studio did a pretty good job in condensing the storyline of the LN series. But they skipped several things to make space for the character development.
Both seasons are brilliantly paced and used a total of six books. It is likely that the second season finale will find its stopping point at the last chapter of Volume 6. The great thing is that Silver Link studio still has five more volumes to create My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3. The remaining content is enough for them to make two new installments of this anime.
My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3: Renewal Status!
The first season of the anime met with a positive critical reception, and the sequel is also in its footsteps. At the time of writing, HameFura has a score of 7.50 on MyAnimeList. Its second season almost catches up to it as it has a score of 7.45 on MAL. The first and the second season has more than 317K and 136K members in its group respectively, which is clearly indicating that how popular this show actually is. Also, Silver Link has more than enough content for the third installment of the series.
Critical Reception, popularity, and the availability of source material are the main three factors that were analyzed by the makers before renewing any show. In the case of this show, all these factors seem to be in favor of the third installment. Therefore, the fans can certainly expect to see an official announcement, My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3, in the near future or right after the second season’s finale. The way its storyline is moving forward, it seems like the second season will also end with a cliffhanger with another kidnapping plot. If this happens, then the arrival of the third season of this fantasy harem series will become inevitable.
Spin-Off Manga For More Dramatic Experience
When the LN and the manga series received a great response, the makers of the franchise decided to launch another manga series for a more dramatic experience. A new spin-off manga titled My Next Life as a Villainess: Verge of Destruction began its serialization in November 2019. It came from the same author, and all of its basic premises are the same as the original one except for the fact that it takes place in an alternate timeline.
In this timeline, Katarina didn’t suffer a headbutt in her childhood. She wasn’t even aware of her reincarnated memories until she was fifteen years old. However, the spin-ff series only has three volumes, and it recently ended earlier this year in July. Seven Seas Entertainment announced the English translation of this manga as well, and its first translated volume will release on November 28, 2021.
My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3: Plot Details
The second season of the anime began with peaceful life for Katarina. She even has her friends by her side. As a result, she became determined to attend and enjoy the school festival to its fullest extent without any worry on her mind. However, she wasn’t aware that the game she used to play was yet to reach its conclusion. Now, it became even worse as more characters continued to show up, and that too with their own personal agendas. As a result, Katarina and the people she loves the most got involved in some new mysteries.
The most recent episode of the anime featured Katarina approaching Keith, who is being held in a secret room. She managed to save Keith by using an item brought by Geordo. When Keith got his senses back, he wasted no time and kissed Katarina. Later, he confessed that he is love with Katarina before all her friends joined them. Now, the final episode will feature a graduation ceremony that will come up with a lot of twists. The plot of the forthcoming episode will decide what will happen in My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3. So, we will update this section as soon as the second season finale hits the screens.
My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3: Release Date
There was a gap of only one year between the release date of HameFura’s first two seasons. So, if everything goes well, the third season will likely follow the same release pattern. So, if Silver Link renews My Next Life As A Villainess Season 3 and begins its production right after the second season finale, then the fans can expect to premiere it in the second half of 2022.
