For anime enthusiasts all over the world, AnimeJapan is one of the most anticipated annual events of the year. Franchises from all over the world are flocking to this event to showcase their latest products and news.
There’s no denying that anime adaptations of light novel series have been a huge hit with viewers. Even Fujino Mori’s “DanMachi,” whose second anime season in 2019 dramatically boosted light book sales was no different.
“DanMachi,” also known as “Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon,” knocked out other light novel series like “Sword Art Online” for the top rank when compared to other anime adaptations. While some fans may be disappointed with the length of the wait, this isn’t unheard of for the series.
Here is everything you need to know about the release of DanMachi Season 5.
Which Characters Will Return in Season 5?
Season 5 of “DanMachi” has yet to have an official cast announced. However, according to Anime News Network, the voice cast from Seasons 1 and 2 returned for Season 3. As a result, the majority of the cast members are almost certainly returning for Season 5.
In Season 3, Weiss, a new character introduced in the Season 2 finale, was the lone addition to the cast. Rina Hidaka provided the voice for her. Inori Minase will return as Hestia, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Bell Cranell, Saori Nishi as Ais Wallenstein, Haruka Tomatsu as Eina Tulle, Yko Hikasa as Freya, and Sma Sait as Hermes, as they have in the past seasons.
All prior seasons and OVAs have been produced by J.C. Staff, which is also responsible for these seasons. As a result, Season 5 will very certainly include their comeback. Hideki Tachibana, who took over as director after Yoshiki Yamakawa’s departure in the second season, supervised the third season, according to Anime News Network.
What is Likely to Happen in DanMachi Season 5?
The story outline for the fifth season of “DanMachi” has not yet been made public. Nevertheless, there are certain hints that can be gleaned from the teaser trailer regarding season 4.
The teaser actually goes back and shows off some of Bell’s earlier escapades throughout the series. In addition to this, the teaser manages to mimic much of what Bell learns out he wants for himself by the end of the third season.
Following a defeat in the concluding fight of Season 3 at the hands of the formidable Asterius and subsequent reconciliation with Ais for the purpose of further training, the adventurer has expressed a desire to improve their overall strength.
The third season of the DanMachi anime adapted the ninth through eleventh volumes of the light novel series. The events of Volume 12 of the books, which truly mark the beginning of a new journey for Bell, will most likely be adapted in Season 4 of the show.
In volume 12, after achieving higher ranks and gaining Orario’s respect, Bell gets a letter inviting him to participate in a new adventure. Because Season 4 is currently ongoing, we should be able to watch an animated version of Bell’s journey. It will only be confirmed after the ending of season 4 that which novels will be adapted in season 5.
DanMachi Season 5: Release Date
Waiting isn’t unusual for the show, even if it’s longer than some fans had wanted. Between the first and second seasons of “DanMachi,” fans had to wait a long time.
The first season of the show aired in 2015, and the second season will be released in 2019. Season 3 of the series was originally scheduled to premiere in July of 2020, but the COVID-19 epidemic pushed it back to October. Season 4’s current release date was pushed back because of the pandemic.
The release date of season 5 is still not revealed yet. But we can expect it to release in early 2024 as anime production usually takes 1 to 2 years in production.
