A fourth anime film will be released in Japanese theaters sometime in the summer of 2024.

The seventh season will have Kenji Nagasaki (director of the first three seasons) return as chief director, with Yousuke Kuroda as series composer and scriptwriter, Yoshihiko Umakoshi and Hitomi Odashima as character designers, and Yuuki Hayashi as music composer.
