No other genre enjoys as fervent and impassioned a following as Anime. And this is with good reason. Anime artfully blends the emotive allure of intricate character portrayals, fantastical storylines, and exhilarating action sequences.
One of the most remarkable Anime creations is entitled “Ajin.” In line with many other Anime series, it finds its roots in a manga of the same name. The Manga series debuted in 2012, garnering widespread acclaim, and continues to captivate readers to this day. Its initial adaptation took the form of three feature films, skillfully crafted by the esteemed production house, Polygon Pictures.
These cinematic masterpieces graced audiences in 2015 and 2016. Subsequently, the production house embarked upon creating the animated series. The first season premiered in January 2016 to resounding acclaim, prompting fervent demand for a second installment. Fans were overjoyed when the second season graced the screens in September 2016, once again receiving adulation from enthusiasts. This fervor has only intensified in anticipation of the third season, a season that continues to elude us, though eagerly awaited.
The narrative revolves around the central protagonist, Nagai Kei, as he confronts the malevolent Karou, the show’s antagonist. In the wake of a fateful and tragic traffic accident, Kei discovers that he is an “Ajin,” beings bestowed with remarkably advanced regenerative capabilities. So profound are these abilities that Ajins can swiftly return to their natural state even after enduring severe injuries.
While humanity is aware of the presence of these extraordinary demi-humans in their midst, the governments’ actions contradict their purported benevolence towards Ajins. In reality, they exploit these extraordinary beings for a myriad of tasks, often involving cruel and inhumane experiments, leveraging their regenerative prowess to these ends.
This ruthless exploitation has spurred a revolutionary movement among several Ajins, inciting rebellion against the very governments that subjugate them. Among these rebels stands the formidable figure of Sato, the show’s primary antagonist. Kei, desiring to escape the clutches of the tyrannical government experimentation, is compelled to confront Sato and apprehend him. “Ajin” weaves a dark and gritty narrative, ensnaring its audience, a fact that engenders great anticipation for its forthcoming third chapter.
Ajin Season 3 Release Date:
Ever since its inception in the Manga of 2012, the series has enjoyed remarkable success. Both the movies and the animated shows garnered widespread acclaim and demand for the next iteration remained steadfast.
Following the conclusion of the first season in April 2016, the second season swiftly followed, a mere five months later. However, four years have since elapsed without a glimpse of the third season, nor any official updates regarding its fate.
Alas, the truth remains disheartening, for the studio has yet to announce the release of “Ajin” season 3 or any related news. While several factors may account for this circumstance, two notably prominent reasons emerge. First, the slow writing process might be impeding progress, particularly due to the shift away from following the manga strictly, as witnessed in the second season. Creating original content demands more contemplation and time. Second, the ongoing pandemic may have significantly impacted the production schedule, although one can hope that the production has since resumed.
Ajin Season 2 Cast revealed:
While we anxiously await official news from the creators, it is reasonable to surmise that the esteemed cast members shall reprise their roles from the preceding seasons. Thus, the following list comprises those who shall likely grace the sets of “Ajin” season 3, as they did in the previous installments:
Gō Ayano shall portray the antagonist, Satō.
Takeru Satoh shall inhabit the role of the protagonist, Kei Nagai.
Minami Hamabe shall embody the character of Eriko Nagai.
Tetsuji Tamayama shall assume the persona of Yū Tosaki.
Yu Shirota shall don the mantle of Kōji Tanaka.
Rina Kawaei shall portray the character of Izumi Shimomura.
Mamoru Miyano shall give voice to the enigmatic IBM.
Yudai Chiba shall embody the role of Okuyama.
Yuki Yamada shall bring to life the character of Takahashi.
Kenichi Suzumura shall assume the persona of Noriaki Iwashimizu.
Kazuko Yoshiyuki shall inhabit the role of Yamanaka.
Hiroshi Shinagawa shall portray the character of Nekozawa.
Ajin Season 3 Plotline:
Predicting the plotline of the third season is a daunting task, fraught with potential inaccuracies, owing to two principal reasons. Firstly, as discussed earlier, the creators have veered away from strict adherence to the manga, opting for more independent storytelling. Thus, anticipating the studio’s next moves proves quite challenging. Secondly, the studio has divulged no information regarding the storyline, be it through a trailer or even a tantalizing glimpse. Consequently, we lack any overt hints from the studio.
Nevertheless, it is reasonable to surmise that the formidable Sato shall return from his captivity in the United States, likely bolstered by the support of American troops. Plausibly, he may secure a deal with these forces, acquiring weaponry and resources to pursue his political ambitions. Yet, with certainty, we can affirm that season 2 culminated in a cliffhanger, and the third season ought to resolve this quandary along with other lingering enigmas.
Will there ever be an Ajin Demi-Human Season 3?
The first two seasons emerged in under ten months, but alas, the third season has required more than four years to materialize. Thus, it is only natural to wonder if the show shall ever return or leave the characters dangling, entwined in unresolved narratives, just like the audience.
This uncertainty is compounded by the absence of any communication from the creators regarding the third season. Nevertheless, you may find solace in our estimation that the show will grace our screens sometime in 2021. Although the third season is presently in the writing phase and has been impacted by the pandemic, we anticipate its release by the mid to end of 2021.
