A third season of Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest is getting produced, with Season 2 director Akira Iwanaga, series composer and scriptwriter Shouichi Satou, and character designer and chief animation director Chika Kojima reprising their roles.

This time, Asread is credited as the sole animation production studio instead of sharing credits with White Fox (Season 1) or Studio Mother (Season 2).  An announcement visual featuring Hajime and Yue and an announcement trailer have been released.

Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest is based on the light novels written by Ryou Shirakome with illustrations from Takaya-ki. The first season of the anime, which was directed by the late Kinji Yoshimoto, aired in 2019. The second season aired earlier this year.

Seven Seas Entertainment describes the light novels as:

When a classroom of students is transported to another world to act as its saviors, Hajime Nagumo finds himself the weakest link. As his friends and classmates are granted strong classes and impressive abilities due to their existing skills, he is given the weak title of Synergist. When a dungeon quest leaves him separated from his group, Hajime must discover his own talents or be left to rot in this world forever.

The Arifureta: From Commonplace to World’s Strongest light novel series is published under the Overlap Bunko label and has inspired a prequel, a short story anthology, a manga adaptation by RoGa, and spin-offs. The story began as a web novel published on Shousetsuka ni Narou in 2013, while the light novels began 2015. 12 volumes have been released as of January 2022.
