How many seasons can anime be?

Kaguya-sama Love is A War is a manga adaptation, as we mentioned earlier. The manga series written by Aka Akasaka is still ongoing. Originally published in May 2015 in Miracle Jump magazine, it continued to be published in Weekly Young Jump magazine in 2016. The last chapter of the 20-volume manga (Ch. 209 at the time of writing) was published on November 26, 2020. The manga series is translated into English and published by the North American publisher Viz Media (17 volumes have been presented in English so far). So which part of the manga was covered by anime?

So far, 209 chapters have been published for manga. Anime mostly follows the manga. The first two seasons of the anime covered 101 chapters. This part coincides with the end of volume 10. With a simple proportion, the series has more than enough resource material for at least two seasons. Besides, the continuing manga series keeps us alive the possibility of seeing more seasons. Below, you can see which chapters were adapted in which part of the anime.

The popularity of the anime

The most important criterion for the continuation of anime is the popularity of the show due to economic reasons. Anime’s reviews have been very successful so far. Even IMDb users, who were not always scrupulous to anime, rated the anime with a high score of 8.3. High scores follow in Myanimelist as well. Also, according to our metrics, the anime’s popularity score is 92.5%. This score is more than enough for the series to get a new season approval. We do not expect any cancellations in the coming years. You can also find the release dates and popularity scores of other anime here.

Is there a trailer released for season 3?

A renewal announcement was shared for the third season of the series and the OVA episode. You can watch it as a video below, but there is no trailer yet. Although there are fan-made third season trailers on YouTube, they are not true. It’s too early to see a new season trailer. We will not be able to see a new season trailer before 2021. Stay tuned for updates.
