Uzaki-Chan Wants To Hang Out Season 3 Release Date
‘Uzaki-chan Wants To Hang Out’ Season 2 or ‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Double was released on October 1, 2022 and ended almost three months later on December 24, 2022. The second part of the romantic comedy series consists of thirteen episodes, each running around twenty-three minutes.
Directed by Kazuya Miura, it stars well-known voice actors such as Naomi Oozora (Hana), Kenji Akabane (Shinichi), Saori Hayami (Tsuki), Ayana Taketatsu (Ami), Yousuke Akimoto (Akihiko) and Tomoya Takagi (Sasaki), among many others. As for the second part of the series, so far we know everything. The anime has not yet been renewed by Studio ENGI. Also, no other company involved in the production or distribution of the series has officially commented on the future of the series.
Silence from the creators is to be expected as the anime won’t be returning any time soon. The first two seasons of Uzaki-Chan Wants To Hang Out have already adapted seven of the nine previously published tankobon volumes from Take’s Japanese manga series of the same name. The lack of source material means that the creators will have to wait to release the series until there is more than enough material for another installment.
On average, two volumes of the manga are released every twelve months, so the creators will have to wait until early 2024 to have enough content. The rom-com series has a good overall rating on MyAnimeList, while its reviews on most online platforms are generally positive. Additionally, the series has been featured multiple times in Crunchyroll’s Top 10 Fall 2022 Anime list.
While the release of the latest installment hasn’t impacted manga sales significantly, the growing popularity of the series among readers combined with the other factors mentioned above more or less guarantees a sequel in the future. Assuming things develop 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.
