It has been confirmed that the highly-anticipated sequel to The Devil is a Part-Timer anime series that will be released in 2023, satisfying the demands of fans who have been eagerly waiting for The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 3. As the 2022 Summer anime slate draws to a close, with Call of the Night, DanMachi, and The Devil is a Part-Timer all set to reach their final episodes, fans are already turning their attention to what the future holds.
While the news of the sequel has excited fans, the exact details of the project remain unknown. The announcement did not specify whether this would be season 3 of the main series or a spin-off. Regardless, fans can look forward to more adventures and exciting moments from their favorite characters.
Brief Summary of the Anime
The Devil is a Part-Timer follows the journey of the Demon Lord Satan, who seeks to conquer the world of Ente Isla with the help of his demon generals Alciel, Lucifer, Malacoda, and Adramelech. After being thwarted by the hero Emilia and her companions, Satan and Alciel escape to modern-day Tokyo, Japan through a portal. In this new world, they must adopt human form due to the absence of magic. To make ends meet, Satan takes up a part-time job at a fast food restaurant called MgRonald while Alciel serves as his houseman.
One day, Satan, who now goes by the name Sadao Maou, encounters Emilia in the form of Emi Yusa. The story explores the character development of each of the cast and their moral values as they navigate the challenges of the new world. More characters from Ente Isla make appearances, adding to the comical and diverse cast of characters who face unique obstacles in their new surroundings.
The story so far
The finale of the last season, titled “The Devil and the Hero Focuses on What’s Happening Right Now,” begins amidst the turmoil. The team is trying to uncover the identity of a mole within their ranks. Emi discovers Gabriel on top of a tower and goes to speak with him. This is when Gabriel confesses that Emi’s existence as both an angel and human threatens the natural order of the world. He also reveals that Justina is actually his alive and well father on Earth. The episode culminates in an intense battle, with Chiho playing a pivotal role and getting injured. After the dust settles, Maou visits her in the hospital. Chiho informed her that she desired to revive Ente Isla, Heaven, and the Demon Realm all at once, which concluded the season with everyone returning to their apartment and watching TV together like they had in the past.
Predictions for The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 3
The show for 2022 summer broadcasting only reached 19th place in the rankings, but still managed to have over 355,000 members – the largest number for any anime in the entire schedule. For 2023, although no exact launch date has been confirmed, studio 3hz does not have any anime projects planned for the year, leaving an opportunity for the Devil Is a Part-Timer sequel in the first quarter.
The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 3 has yet to be confirmed for the exact number of episodes, however, as the series narrative is split into four parts of the light novel, it is likely that season 3 will span over 20 episodes. Additionally, in the upcoming season, Sadao Maou, Suzuno Kamazuki, Shirou Ashiya, Alas Rasmus, and the hero Emi Yusa will reunite in Ente Isla in an attempt to save the injured Hanzou Urushihara and Chiho Sasaki.
