Mairimashita! Iruma-kun, which gained a considerable fan base with its first season, continues its success with good criticism for its second season. Fans are already excited for the third season. The anime’s manga is currently being published, and each new anime season is a good opportunity to increase manga sales as well. Originally published by Akita Shoten, the manga series reached a total of 25 volumes, and only the first 11 volumes were adapted into the anime in the first two seasons. Considering that the manga series already contains enough source material and is still ongoing, it is possible to see new seasons after the third season. The manga series does not have an English publisher yet, but we hope it will meet the readers in English in the future.

What will happen in Season 3 of Iruma-kun?

There is a valid reason why Misfits Class has this name. The students of that class have become the teachers’ nightmare! While Iruma was evil, he led his class to capture the forbidden class Royal One. To hold the Royal One in their hands, everyone in the class must be Level 4, the Daleth. To successfully overcome this situation, all class members must prove themselves by doing their best at the Harvest Festival. For everyone in the class to become stronger, some private teachers will come and help them. During this training, Iruma will need to work with green-haired teacher Bars Robin. The Harvest Festival can essentially be summed up as a survival test for freshmen. In this test, Iruma will pair up with Shax Lied and the class will compete in teams. All members of the class earn points, but Shax and Iruma can’t win even a point for days. With these unfortunate events, how will Iruma become the Young King? Let’s watch and find out.
