Key points for DanMachi Season 5 news:
- Personally, Season 4 of DanMachi completely shifted my perception of the series, introducing darker themes and a heightened sense of urgency and desperation in each episode.
- I’m thrilled to share that DanMachi Season 5 has been officially announced at the 10th-anniversary event. While details are scarce, we have a teaser visual and announcement video, with no specific release window or information on the staff/cast.
- Excitement aside, I can’t help but wish for a higher budget and a different studio for Season 5. Despite JC Staff’s efforts, I feel a better-quality adaptation could enhance the series, especially considering the action-filled nature of Season 4 and the impact certain moments could have with improved animation.
It is funny how there was a point where I wouldn’t even have considered covering this news. But Season 4 changed that for me. Season 4 pretty much changed my whole perception of the series because of how shockingly dark it was. And now that DanMachi Season 5 has been announced, I think we should prepare for some more suffering.
The anime dabbled in the dark themes before Season 4 too but I don’t know what changed in Season 4, things suddenly had a lot more at stake. So you can feel the urgency and desperation in every episode. Honestly, it feels like the writing suddenly got some compelling in Season 4 somehow.
Either way, welcome back to another news article. Today we are talking about DanMachi Season 5. Not much to report as you’d expect from an early announcement but let’s get right into it regardless. Let’s start.
What do we know about DanMachi Season 5?
At the 10th anniversary event of the anime, it was announced that Season 5 is under production. We got a teaser visual and an announcement video. That is it, no release windows or staff/cast mentions but after 4 seasons, they’re unlikely to change anyway. So it is pretty likely that JC Staff will be returning to make the anime once again.
You can check out the announcement video here. Again, there is nothing much in it but still.
Let’s move on to
After Season 4, man, I’d love to see this series get a better budget and get adapted by a different studio. I know that the chances of that happening are pretty much zero but a man can dream. Like, no disrespect to JC Staff, they what they do. But it would be fun to see a better-quality adaptation of the series especially given how action-filled Season 4 was and it really did feel like the animation held back the impact of certain moments.
Either way, I am very excited about Season 5. Season 4 was amazing and someone told me that the upcoming arc is even better, so hell yeah, I am excited about it. I think it will be released sometime next year like, say Summer or Spring 2024 Season… but that is just speculation on my part.
That is all for now!
So yeah, let me know what you guys think in the comments. Season 5 should be exciting and I hope that it lives up to the standard set by Season 4. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
