OreGairu Season 3 Release Date Delayed – Official Statement

COVID 19 has caused many of the upcoming anime episodes and seasons to get delayed. OreGairu, also known as “My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU,” Season 3 Episode 1 that was titled “Eventually, the season change and the snow melts,” was scheduled to air on April 9, 2020. However, the third season has been delayed, and the older second season will air in the time slot.

The official twitter page of Oregairu issued the following statement two days before the release.

Translation:

We are sad to announce that “My Youth Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax”, which was scheduled to be broadcast from this spring was postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus. Thank you for your understanding.

There was no mention of any further date for release as the situation in Japan is as bad as anywhere in the world. This season could be delayed for up to 6 months, given the trend with other seasons.

OreGairu Season 3 New Release Date

SNAFU / OreGairu Season 3 will be released in Fall 2020; this is if it is not delayed any further. We will update you once we have an official confirmation.

About Oregairu

Oregairu (abbreviation for “My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected” in Japanese) is a light novel written by Wataru Watari. It was illustrated into three mangas by Ponkan8. The anime made the debut in 2013 with the first season followed by another season in 2015.

The “Feel” studio announced last year that they will be making season three with the director “Kei Oikawa” from the second season returning. This third and final season was announced by “Shogakukan” on March 18, 2019. This season was going to continue the storyline after the two years in the high school had been spent.

The story is about Hachiman Hikigaya, who is an unresponsive high school student with narcissistic and semi-rebellious tendencies. This personality flaw is due to his socially deprived lifestyle. He doesn’t believe in joyful life and considers it a waste of time. Hachiman is sent to the school’s service club by his teacher. She advises him to join the club to change his social outcast behavior. This club promises the students to help them achieve their goals. Hachiman has a particular interest in two girls, Yukino Yukinoshita and Yui Yuigahama, who become good friends with Hachiman.

Oregairu Season 3

Yukino was the only member of the service club until Hachiman joined. Yui was their first customer. As the story unfolds, Hachiman comes to know that the three of them are connected by a car accident. Hachiman saved Yui’s cat from a car and got hit just before he enrolled for the highschool. He was hospitalized for three months. The Car that hit Hachiman had belonged to the family of Yukino. Hachiman did not take this well, and it took him some time to get back with Yukino. After joining the club, he meets people who have varying personalities that influence Hachiman in a positive way.

The casting of Season 3 Oregairu / Snafu

Most of the casting is the same as season 1 & 2. There might be some changes, but since the studio is the same, the animation and style will be the same.

  • Hachiman Hikigaya Voiced by: Takuya Eguchi
  • Yukino Yukinoshita Voiced by: Saori Hayami
  • Yui Yuigahama Voiced by: Nao Tōyama
  • Saika Totsuka Voiced by: Mikako Komatsu
  • Hayato Hayama Voiced by: Takashi Kondō
  • Yumiko Miura Voiced by: Marina Inoue
  • Hina Ebina Voiced by: Nozomi Sasaki
  • Saki Kawasaki  Voiced by: Ami Koshimizu and more.

Theme Music for Season 3 of Oregairu / Snafu

The season has four pieces of theme music: one opening and three ending themes.

  •  Opening theme: “Megumi no Ame” by Nagi Yanagi
  • Ending Theme: “Diamond no jundo” by Saori Hayami and Nao Tōyama with two variations.

OreGairu Season three was awaited by many of its fans since it was announced. The delay was surely unfortunate, but as the coronavirus pandemic deteriorates, a new release date may be announced for the anime in the near future.
