  • High anticipation for Season 3, with hopes it will redeem the series after the slow-paced Season 2 and excitement for the upcoming arcs from the light novel.

It took us long enough but we are here. We are finally here. The community considers the upcoming few arcs the best of Re:Zero by far. And I agree, Arcs 5 and 6 are really good. I know that a lot of people are burnt out by Season 2. Arc 4 has a plodding start and I understand why a lot of people dropped Season 2 because of it. But I do think it is more than worth it if you stick with it. Regardless though, if you stuck through, I am damn sure you are going to enjoy Re:Zero Season 3.

So yeah, we got a bunch of new updates on Seaosn 3, and some of them are quite interesting. So welcome back to another news article. Today we are talking about Re:Zero Season 3. So let’s get right into it.

New info on Re:Zero Season 3

I think it was announced a while ago that Season 3 will be coming out in the Fall 2024 season. Well, we now know that the first episode will be a 90-minute special. We don’t have a fixed release date but we know that it will come out in October. To add to this, the first episode will also get an early premiere at the Anime Expo 2024. This will be on 5th July in LA. It will also be released later in Japanese theatres on 30th August for a limited time. This should make it obvious that Season 3 is working with a much better budget. And that’s good.

Of course, all of the old cast is returning to the show. Masahiro Shinohara will be directing the season at White Fox. Shinohara was an episode director for the first season. As far as I know, they didn’t work on the 2nd season. But the studio remains the same, White Fox. Konomi Suzuki who gave the famous opening of No Game No Life will be performing the opening theme, Reweave and Myth&Roid known for various awesome anime songs like Voracity (Overlord opening 3) will be giving the ending theme, NOX LUX.

My Thoughts

I am very excited about Season 3. I feel like this is Re:Zero’s chance to show off just what it is capable of pulling off. Season 2 had a lot of divided opinions because of the slow pacing. But Season 3 has a chance to redeem the show in the eyes of people who might have dropped it during the first half of Season 2. And of course, since I have read the LN, I am quite excited about the upcoming arcs. Because I know for a fact that certain scenes will look amazing in the animations. Which again makes me happy that Season 3 has a better budget.

That is all for now!

Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. Re:Zero Season 3 should be quite awesome and I look forward to it. So yeah, I am off to play some Bioshock. See ya!
