86 Season 3 Update for 2024 – Is a Third Season Coming?

If you’re a fan of the 86 anime, you’re undoubtedly wondering about a potential third season. Right now, there’s no official word on whether Season 3 is happening.

But that doesn’t mean all hope is lost! Let’s analyze the factors that could influence a Season 3 announcement, and when we might expect news.

86 Season 3

What is ’86’ About?

’86’ (also called  ‘Eiti Shikkusu’ in Japan) is a popular anime based on a light novel series by Asato Asato, with illustrations by Shirabii. It’s a fantastic mecha and sci-fi military series, and its popularity has fans clamoring for more.

The story follows Vladilena ‘Lena’ Milizé, a young military officer in the Republic of San Magnolia. Lena fights for the rights of the oppressed Colorata minority.

The anime currently has one season split into two parts. Since its debut, ’86’ has gained a massive following who are anticipating a potential Season 3 announcement.

Will There Be an ’86’ Season 3?

To understand the likelihood of a third season in 2023, we need to look at two factors:

  • Source Material: Does the original light novel series have enough content to adapt?
  • Financial Success: Did the first season generate enough profit to warrant a sequel?

Source Material: Light Novels

The ’86’ light novel series currently has 12 volumes, with more potentially on the way.  This means there’s plenty of source material for at least three more anime seasons.  If you want to find out what happens next, you can pick up the light novels starting from volume 4!

Financial Success: Sales and Profit

Anime sequels often depend on factors like Blu-ray sales, light novel sales, and merchandise revenue. While ’86’  didn’t have record-breaking Blu-ray sales, it did perform decently overall. Additionally, the series has impressive merchandise offerings and a growing fanbase.

So, Will We Get a Season 3?

As of June 2023, an official release date for Season 3 of ’86’ hasn’t been announced. However, there’s enough source material, and the series seems to have performed well financially. There’s a good chance we’ll get a new season, though it might not be until 2024 or later.

Typically, new seasons of anime take around two to three years to produce. There’s no reason to worry yet – let’s be patient and watch for an official announcement in the coming months or years.
