Will the Log Horizon season 3 anime return?
The Japanese anime series Log Horizon was aired back in 2014 and fans of the series have been desperately wanting to hear about the future of the series.
A novel series written by MamareTouno was illustrated by Kazuhiro Hara. It was adapted into four manga series.
The first one revolves around the original plot of the series while the other three focused mainly on the characters of the light novel. Soon, the series got its anime adaptation which made its debut in 2013. The Log Horizon season 2 ran from 2014 to 2015. However, after the second season aired, the series didn’t get renewed and it’s already 2020.
Log Horizon Season 3: Will There Be the Third Season?
Still, there is no word on Log Horizon season 3 production. There has been lot of false rumor lately which claimed that the anime will get its renewal by 2020. However, its pretty complex when it comes to giving in an anime series like this for its next season.
Generally, the production house needs a storyline to adapt that into an anime series and for a particular season to happen, a lot of content is required.
The production house generally needs a gap so as to prevent any conflict between the original source and the anime.
For a 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 third installment.
It is said that the big hiatus between the 10th and the 11th volumes of the series created this problem. The 11th problem came out in 2018 and NHK already created two seasons of LOG Horizons, 25 episodes each.
So practically for Log Horizon to happen, they would require a lot of story materials from the original source.
Log Horizon Season 3: Release Date
It has been almost five years and we haven’t heard any update about the third installment of the anime series. But we have good news!
The show is confirmed to be coming this year. According to our sources, Log Horizon season 3 will release in October 2020. Although this is not a tentative date as such, as there might be a possible delay due to the pandemic outbreak that has halted its production.
Log Horizon Season 3: Plot
The story revolves around the thirty thousand MMORPG players who get teleported to the virtual game world while being rooted in their toy idols during the twelfth expansion pack. To counter the new world and combat deadly creatures, Shiroe, along with his friends Naotsugu and Akatsuki decided to join their league.
In the last episode of the season, there was a fierce battle between the Shiroe and Taika. It was Shirioe’s massive attack that led to the victory. He is also making a virtual connection between the two worlds.
However, in Log Horizon season 3 we may expect a storyline to get continued from where it was left. We might see from the continuation of the Round Table incident.
There is a massive fan-following of the Log Horizon universe but another season’s future does not look as promising.
Shiroe might have to face many will creatures, as there is a possibility of the introduction of new villains.
