Good news for fans of isekai fantasy adaptations with a dark twist: Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest, the ongoing TV anime adaptation based on the light novel series written by Ryo Shirakome and Takaya-ki about a young man who finds himself abandoned and betrayed in a magical fantasy world with a questionable job class, will be returning to Japanese airwaves for a third season.
The new season was announced at a screening of the Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest OAV held at Shinjuku Piccadilly Cinema in Tokyo on September 10, 2022. A new key visual and preview video (below) have been revealed for the series.
The original Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest light novels are published in Japan by Overlap under their Overlap Bunko imprint, and English language versions are also available in digital and print formats from J-Novel Club and Seven Seas Entertainment, respectively. Seven Seas describes the story of the series as follows:
When a classroom of students is transported to another world to act as its saviors, Hajime Nagumo finds himself the weakest link. As his friends and classmates are granted strong classes and impressive abilities due to their existing skills, he is given the weak title of Synergist. When a dungeon quest leaves him separated from his group, Hajime must discover his own talents or be left to rot in this world forever.
The first season of Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest is directed by Kinji Yoshimoto and features animation production by Asread and White Fox, while the second season is directed by Akira Iwanaga and features animation production by Asread and studio MOTHER. Crunchyroll currently streams both earlier seasons of the series.
