How Did Arifureta Season 2 Go?
Arifureta From Commonplace to World’s Strongest Season 2 bugged some of the viewers who thought of it as a copy of the previous season. Premiering its first episode on 13 January 2022, the show continued for over 2 months and released a total of 12 episodes, one episode weekly. It concluded on 7th April and covered six out of the 12 volumes of the original light novel series.
Isekai genre basically means the protagonist entering into a completely new fantasy world and has to adapt ways to survive there. Continuing on the same note, Season 2 portrayed Hajime getting transported to another world and being left behind by his former friends. He is on a complete zero level there and found a labyrinth where his weak magic was finally strengthened by him, making several allies for him on the way.
After the event of saving his classmates, Hajime gets on the journey for Erisen for the task of escorting Myuu and her mother. He has to find a way to find a home and a God for himself and nothing can stop him from acquiring his goal. He will fight and defeat everyone in his path of answers.

Renewal Chances of Arifureta Season 3
An OVA for Arifureta is set to release on 25 September this year and it is expected that Season 3 will be announced once the OVA premieres. There are no such announcements for Arifureta Season 3 from the production houses but the season may get a renewal soon as it has to answer the cliffhangers left by the second season.
Several important chapters from the novel series by Ryō are yet to be included in anime and interestingly, the novel contains 12 volumes out of which only 6 have been preserved. Plenty of stories and twists are still left to be premiered and it feels amusing to still have more than a season left for the show!
What Can be the Release Date?
The series is very popular and is likely to get the announcement of a new season by the end of this year. Also, the leftover important plot has to be presented in the anime version. Hence we can expect the production to get completed next year and Arifureta Season 3 to be released anytime next year with a bang! The final decision still rests with the showrunners and we have to wait and keep an eye on every news and report about Arifureta Season 3 rolling in media. Hope we get to know the story of Hajime sooner!
