The fans are waiting for the Season 3 of Shinmai Maou no Testament for almost three years since The Testament of Sister New Devil BURST was premiered. After that on March 28, 2018, another OVA episode was premiered. And on April 1, 2018, the 12th volume of the original light novel series has been published in Japan.
The Testament of Sister New Devil Season 1 covered the first three novels of Tetsuto Uesu’s novels and the 2nd installment covered volumes 4 to 7. So now, everyone is asking will there be Shinmai Maou no Testament Season 3, because the other five additional books exist, and that means that there is enough material for a 3rd season of Shinmai Maou no Testament. But when will it happen?
On their official website, there is information that more than 2.3 million copies of Shinmai Maou no Testament have been sold, and that’s a lot. We think that’s more than enough for a series to get a new season. The Production IMS will most definitely extend the series to another season. And ‘The Testament of Sister New Devil’ was a great success also. The first season got a score of 7.3 from 10, and the second season got a score of 7.11. And on IMDb, they also have a good rating, 6.8. But this is not that important in Japan, there what’s more important is the number of BD/DVD sales, and the sales were a success. So, when we take all of this into consideration, the ratings, the sales and the novels that are out there that can serve as source material, it seems that the 3rd season will see the light of day in the future.
Of course, this is enough for us, but there is always a chance that we are not right. But if we are right the only thing that is left is for Production IMS to announce the release date of Shinmai Maou no Testament season 3.
The Testament of Sister New Devil was aired in January 2015 on Tokyo MX, and after that BS11, TVS, TVQ, and other Japanese broadcasters started airing the series. In North America, Funimation was the licensor for the anime. And ‘The Testament of Sister New Devil BURST’ was premiered on October 9, 2015. So, it has been a long time since we heard something new about this franchise.
The release date of Shinmai Maou No Testament Season 3
We think that there will be a 3rd season of Shinmai Maou No Testament, but there is still no official announcement about the release date. We hope that the new season will be announced soon because the 12th volume of the light novel series is out there, the Production IMS has plenty of material to work on a TV adaptation. Some say that the new season will be out this fall, maybe in October of 2019. And if not in October, then maybe at the beginning of 2020.
