The episode 12 of Komi can’t communicate season 2 just released in Japan. The anime fans outside of Japan have to wait for a few more weeks to see the final episode.
In case you don’t know, Netflix is exclusively streaming the anime series worldwide, however, the new episodes don’t get released before 3 week delay from Japan (we don’t know why Netflix does that). Some anime fans can’t wait for that long, and turn to unofficial fan subbing which is available in 2 to 3 days of Japanese broadcast. Now, fans are wondering when or if Komi Can’t Communicate is getting a 3rd season? Here is everything you need to know about it.
Is Season 3 Officially Announced?
Komi Can’t Communicate season 3 has not been officially announced yet. The Studio behind the production, OLM, Netflix or any other officials involved in the production of the anime have not confirmed or green lit the third season. It is most likely that we will get new information about the new season after the 2 remaining episodes finish streaming on Netflix in the next 2 weeks.
Did Manga Sales Increased After Anime?
One of the two major factors that determine if an anime will get a new season or not, is the popularity of the series in Japan. One of the easiest methods is to look at the manga sales, so, Did Komi San manga sales increased after getting an anime adaptation? Unfortunately, the anime adaptation didn’t boost the manga sales as much as it is expected for a franchise after getting an anime series.
Is There Enough Source Material?
The second major factor that plays a role in a series getting a sequel is the source material (manga or light novel). Fortunately, Komi Can’t Communicate has enough manga material to adapt not 1 but two, three more seasons. The manga series is currently ongoing, so the source material is present in abundance.
How many manga chapters are there of Komi Can’t Communicate? So far, the author has released 361 manga chapters. The first 2 seasons of anime adapted till chapter 130 of the manga. If you cannot wait for a new season, you can start reading manga from chapter 131.
Komi San Season 3 Release Date
Komi Can’t Communicate season 3 release date have not been officially announced. Considering that the production of a 12 episode anime usually takes around 1 and a half year, the expected release date for season 3 is 2024.
The final episode of Komi San showed us the glimpse of the new school, and fans got to know that Komi and Tadano are again together in their school. Only manga readers know that there were glimpses shown of the new classmates of Komi, at the end of the finale, which might be a hint that the production committee is planning a new season.
