Uzaki-Chan Wants To Hang Out Season 3 Release Date
‘Uzaki-Chan Wants To Hang Out’ season 2 or ‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double’ released on October 1, 2022, and concluded almost three months later on December 24, 2022. The second installment of the romantic comedy series comprises thirteen episodes each with a runtime of about twenty-three minutes long.
Directed by Kazuya Miura, the show stars well-known voice actors like Naomi Oozora (Hana), Kenji Akabane (Shinichi), Saori Hayami (Tsuki), Ayana Taketatsu (Ami), Yousuke Akimoto (Akihiko), and Tomoya Takagi (Sasaki) among many others. As far as the second installment of the show is concerned, here’s everything we know so far. The anime has not been renewed as of now by Studio ENGI. Moreover, no other company involved in the production or distribution of the show has officially commented about its future so far.
The silence from the creators is expected as the anime will not be returning anytime soon. The first two seasons of ‘Uzaki-Chan Wants To Hang Out’ have already adapted seven out of the nine already published Tankobon volumes of Take’s eponymous Japanese manga series. The lack of source material means that the creators will have to wait to greenlit the show until there is more than enough material available for another installment.
Two volumes of the manga are published every twelve months on average, so to have sufficient content, creators will have to wait until early 2024. The rom-com series has a good overall rating on MyAnimeList, while its reviews on most online platforms are usually positive. In addition to this, the show also featured in Crunchyroll’s Top 10 Fall 2022 anime list on multiple instances.
While the release of the latest installment did not significantly influence manga sales, its growing popularity among readers coupled with other factors mentioned above more or less almost guarantees a renewal in the future. Assuming things do pan out as expected and there are no unforeseen delays, ‘Uzaki-Chan Wants To Hang Out’ season 3 will most likely premiere in the Spring 2025 anime season.
