This year’s spring batch of new anime series includes the second season of Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, which also has the name “The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water”. With the current broadcast, there is little hope for an official announcement for an exact third season release date. So we can only stay tuned and follow the unfolding events.
General info about this anime series
Gakusen Toshi Asterisk is a relatively fresh anime aired worldwide on many channels, including Crunchyroll. The series definitely has an English translation. The series is also broadcast on a local TV network in Japan, in Japanese, of course.
The series’s second season release date was scheduled for the next year. Imagine the surprise the loyal followers of this story experienced after the recent release of the second season in April. Anyways, the series is now airing.
As for the creators, the widely-known production company as A-1 Pictures studio has apparently involved itself with it.
The story is set in Seidukan Academy, a fantastical place known for the competitions between genesselas, possessors of mana. Naturally, the fighters possess amazing and imperious weapons.
The story has two major characters, Ayato Amagiri and Yulis-Alexi von Reissfeld who is apparently to be a princess. With Ayato’s arrival at the Academy, these two engage in a dangerous fight. Ayato Amagiri, incidentally, possesses the great skill of dual wielding and, because of that, the scenes are truly mind-blowing.
The two protagonists ultimately team up in fighting competitions and start gaining victories and suffering defeats together.
Acceptance of the anime
There’s no need for the directors to worry about if the series’s acceptance as a successful anime project since the viewers’ commentaries lean towards favorable rather than negative.
We get to enjoy solid and adequate characters without even hints of half-bakedness. The soft drawing palette and visually striking fights contribute to the general acceptance of the anime in general.
The romantic feelings between the central characters are also an integral part of the narration. Without them, the story is simply not cohesive.
When can we expect the release of the third installment?
The launch of the second season has made it clear that we shouldn’t anticipate the following one anytime soon. After all, no point in expecting that the Gakusen Toshi Asterisk season 3 release date is somewhere around the corner. It is now time to slow down, step away from intrigues and suppositions about the possibility of cancellation, and, of course, just enjoy the current portion of new episodes.
