Not all anime that is being produced is up to par, some impress us while some fail. This is completely understandable as not all things are perfect in this world and work on anime shows as well. Liking or not liking some particular anime can be a matter of subject based on people’s taste and choice but if some anime flops and not stands in the expectations for most of the people, then that show is indeed not good and the producers shouldn’t make further of that. The same case is happening with “Sword Gai” which already delivered two seasons till now. Here we have pointed out everything about Sword Gai season 3 that you absolutely need to know including whether we will be getting one more season or are the network finally realized that they should end the series? continue scrolling and find out.
Sword Gai is a Japanese anime television series directed by Takahiro Ikezoe and Tomohito Naka. Like others, this anime is also an adaptation of the manga series penned by Toshiki Inoue and illustrated by Keita Amemiya (characters) and Wosamu Kine (scenario). It started serialization in Hero’s Inc’s. seinen manga magazine Hero’s in 2012 and has been gathered into six tankōbon volumes. A continuation series known as Sword Gai Evolve was distributed in 2016 and finished in 2019.
Sword Gai Season 3 Release Date
The initial twelve episodes (“Part I”) of an anime adaption named Sword Gai: The Animation was delivered on Netflix worldwide on March 23, 2018. Part II was delivered on July 30, 2018. An anime transformation of Sword Gai was initially evolved by DLE and Fields and it was booked to air in April 2016 yet was endlessly postponed. After Netflix acquired the licensing rights, the series was streamed worldwide on March 23, 2018. Both first and second season has total 12 episodes to watch with the runtime of 22 minutes of duration.
The anime proved to be a poor attempt by Netflix. the ratings and reviews that it got are terrible. On IMDb, it shows a score of 5.8 out of 100. The reviews say that this has to be one of the most incoherent, outlandish, futile anime ever. It is absolutely terrible and it borrowed heavily from the other anime’s concepts. The show is all over the place in terms of genre be it horror, action, fantasy, supernatural.
Now, will Netflix still choose to continue even after the failure of the series? well, most certainly not. they officially canceled and ended the Sword Gai and there won’t be any season 3. The reason for cancellation as one would expect is related to its awful performance and bad reviews. So, there is no chance that OTT giant will invest their money in something that is not worthy and only brings losses.
