Though it’s been five years since the second cour of 1st season ended, the fans are still waiting for the 3rd season. However, we need to understand that the anime Gate: Jieitai Kano Chi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri has only 1 season with 24 Episodes. Moreover, the production house, i.e., A-1 Pictures, released the first season in two cours. On the one hand, the first cour aired from July to September of 2015. On the other hand, the second cour ran from January to March of 2016. Thus, each cour had 12 episodes. Therefore, Gate Season 3 is only a fan-made concept. What we’re looking for is the second season of Gate.
Nevertheless, it’s been a few years since the first/second season of Gate. In contrast to its delay, the fans are still waiting to see one of their favorite fantasy anime again. Hence, here’s all we know so far about the release date of Gate Season 3.
All We Know About Gate Season 3:
Since most of the fandom has already titled the two cours as season 1 and 2, we’d also be referring to the same. Though the manga has multiple arcs and composite storylines, the production house is still not forming a third season. The second season of Gate ended on March 26th, 2021. Additionally, the last episode delivered multiple loopholes for Gate Season 3.
Nevertheless, A-1 Pictures has already hired the VFX team, which worked in the first two seasons of Gate. However, they haven’t given any information about Gate Season 3. In addition, Sentai Filmworks stated that they were overwhelmed to see the response for Gate Season 1 and 2. In comparison, they delivered this statement in 2017 and didn’t give any feedback regarding that. Fans were expecting the third season to air in 2019 or 2020, which wasn’t fulfilled either. Thus, there has been no official arrangement for a 3rd season. Despite all the backlashes, fans still expect the 3rd season. Since we already know how unpleasant it can be when an anime doesn’t return for the next season. While there are many arcs and content of Gate ready to get published, the real deal does seem to be getting further away.
What to Expect from Season 3?
The second season ended in favor of the JSDF. Firstly, Youji Itami repels the upcoming war between the two worlds. Also, he protected and rescued Princess Pina Co Lada. Itami exiled the antagonist Zorzal El Caesar from the capital, ensuring good relations between the Imperial Capital and Japan Self-Defense Force(JSDF). Furthermore, Youji Itami also reverted the Gate from collapsing the two Worlds. Hence, Gate Season 3 could easily follow up the first season’s storyline.

Nonetheless, the antagonist of the first season- Zorzal, escaped the battlefields with some of his followers. Hence, he could return in the third one with some more powerful alliances. Gate manga also has multiple other storylines. One of which is based on the Japanese Maritime Special-Defense Force (JMSDF). Thus, Gate Season 3 could depict the further adventures of the navy warfares. Hence, multiple possibilities could come into action if only the production house decides so. The anime is available on Netflix.
