The next season, Blue Exorcist Season 3, haven’t been officially confirmed yet. Here’s everything about it.
A dark Japanese fictional manga series, Blue Exorcist, was written and illustrated by Kazue Kato. The series was published in the year 2009 in Shueisha’s magazine, known as Jump Square. It entailed 27 chapters of thrilling events and ended in July 2021. The manga series was given license to be released in the English language and was available to the whole world.
In the year 2011, the dark manga series, Blue Exorcist, was adapted to animation via A-1 Pictures. The anime series was directed by Tensai Okamura, who aired the first of its seasons on April 17, 2011. The first season of Blue Exorcist includes 25 plus 1 OVA episode, which ended on October 2, 2011.
In the year 2017, six years late, its second season was released, titled ‘Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga’. The director was replaced, and season 2 was directed by Koichi Hatsumi, but the production remained the same, A-1 Pictures. The Blue Exorcist Season 2 included 12 episodes along with 2 OVA episodes which aired from January to March 2017. With English subtitles, the anime series was available on Hulu, Crunchyroll and many popular platforms.
The Blue Exorcist anime series entails supernatural elements and demons. Its narrative revolves around Rin Okumura, who appears to be an ordinary teenager. The anime adaptation entails two worlds, Humans and Demons, which are two sides of a coin. The Human world is known as ‘Assiah’ and the Demon world as ‘Gehenna’.
It has been explained in the starting that the only way to travel between these two realms is through possession, where Satan, the ruler of the demon world, couldn’t find a host to possess. Satan wishes to conquer Assiah, for which he sends his son, who will eventually grow into a vessel for Satan to possess.
The main character, Rin Okumura, one day got ambushed by some demons, and his world turned upside down when he got aware of the fact that he is Satan’s son. The demons tell Rin that his father would like his return so that he can conquer the world of humans. But the son, Rin Okumura, doesn’t want ‘Assiah’ to be in the hands of a Demon King. Rin Okumura then starts his training to become an Exorcist for the only purpose of saving Assiah with his brother Yukio.
The only way to figure out about Blue Exorcist Season 3 will depend upon the source material’s status and the profit of its previous seasons. The reason why any series get more than one or two seasons is based on its profitability from the last season. But the Blue Exorcist anime didn’t make enough profit from the first and second seasons.
The reason why there hasn’t been any confirmation about Blue Exorcist Season 3 is because of its sales figures. The series was sold on various platforms, one of which is Blue-Ray. On the site Blue-Ray, the Blue Exorcist series sold around 12,700 copies per disk for the first season. The Blue Exorcist Season 2 sold only 2,200 copies per disk, which doesn’t include the English release.
The Blue Exorcist Season second got 80% down, which was a terrible sale. There was a six-year-long gap between seasons 1 and 2, but the profit of season 2 is negligible.
If we talk about the Manga series Blue Exorcist, in the year 2018, it sold around 20,000,000 copies and was one of the ‘top 100 best-selling manga series of all time.
Nonetheless, the performance of the anime adaptation wasn’t really good for particularly season 2. If Blue Exorcist is ever to be confirmed, it will start from the ending events of season 2. But so far, looking at its probability, Blue Exorcist Season 3 will likely never happen.
The fictional anime, Blue Exorcist, is also known as ‘Ao no Ekusoshisuto’ in Japan, was written and illustrated by Kazue Kato. Until now, 17 volumes of Blue Exorcist manga have been released in Japan, along with a spin-off. The spin-off focused on the main character’s brother Yukio, and it ended in April 2020.
Fortunately, the manga series, Blue Exorcist, is still going on in 2022. The writer, Kazue Kato, published the last volume in July 2021.
The Blue Exorcist anime adaptation Season 1 entailed the Volumes from 1 to 4, and the second one did volumes from 5 to 8. The Blue Exorcist Season 3 will adapt the volume 9th of the manga series and would probably end with volume 13th. With so many volumes of manga series released to date, there is enough material for the next one, Blue Exorcist Season 4, too.
With no official confirmation of Blue Exorcist Season 3, there is no announcement for Blue Exorcist Season 3 release date. The Blue Exorcist Season 2 wasn’t profitable, and because of this, there is no news about the next one.
The official website on Twitter named ‘Official Blue Exorcist Account’ is not promoting this series anymore. The reason why this series failed is that the Blue Exorcist Season 1 had an original ending, because of which the second season came out after six years.
Along with the release date, there is no trailer for Blue Exorcist Season 3, and it is never likely to be released as the second season failed to achieve anything close to what Season 1 did.
The directors have changed for the Blue Exorcists seasons, as season 1 was directed by Okamura Tensai, and the second season was directed by Kouichi Hatsumi. The scriptwriters were different, too, as season 1’s series composition was done by Yamaguchi Ryota, and the second was done by Toshiya Oono. All the characters were designed by Keigo Saski, and the studio which helped with the production was A-1 Pictures.
The characters and the voice actors for Blue Exorcist Season 1, 2 and probably three, if it ever gets a confirmation, are:-
|Rin Okumura||Nobuhiko Okamoto|
|Yukio Okumura||Jun Fukuyama|
|Shura Kirigakure||Rina Satou|
|Mephisto Pheles||Hiroshi Kamiya|
Now you are aware of all the information about Blue Exorcist Season 3, which is never likely to happen. With no confirmation or even a piece of small information about Season 3, you can explore the manga series, which is a really popular and exciting series. You can watch the Blue Exorcist Movie if you haven’t, which made around 4.5 million dollars.
The Blue Exorcist franchise was at its peak in 2013, as the movie received a lot of positive reviews. Instead of waiting for Blue Exorcist Season 3, which we don’t think is ever happening, you can go through the manga series to explore the adventures of Rin Okumura. However, if there is any new information comes to light, we will update the website.
