Gate Anime Season 3 Release Date
The first season of the show aired in 2015, whereas the second season aired in 2016. It has been quite some time now, but there has been no word on the status of Gate Season 3 by the producing team.
Furthermore, Gate has been created by A1 pictures, known to keep a long gap between seasons. And we expect the same to be happening in the case of Gate Anime Season 3. As it hasn’t been greenlit yet.
According to our sources, there is no chance that Gate Anime Season 3 will be released this year as A1 pictures already have a lot on their plate. Viewers will have to wait another year or even two (late 2022 or beginning of 2023) to watch the next season, which shall be full of adventures.
Gate Anime Season 3 Cast
Gate is a show with numerous characters, so it is difficult to mention each name. Although, we have mentioned the names of the cast members that will be playing a major role in Season 3 below:
- Youji Itami
- Princess Pina Co Lada
- Rory Mercury
- Lelei La Laena
- Tuka Luna Marceau
The plot of Gate Anime is quite fascinating and thrilling. It revolves around the sudden opening of a portal from another world in Tokyo. And this is not it. This portal acts as a gate and allows monsters and soldiers to come into Japan from their world. Furthermore, this leads to a lot of trouble for Japan as in no time these invaders put the streets of Ginza’s district into flames.
The Japanese Self Defense Forces are forced to counterattack and make sure that these destructive invaders return to where they came from. Luckily, the Japanese Self Defense Forces get successful and can make the invaders go back to their realm, which lies on the other side of the portal.
Then, a forward operating base is created so that negotiations can be made with the invaders.
This brings us to the show’s main character, aka Youji Itami, a 33-year-old man. He is chosen to lead a special reconnaissance team which is ultimately a part of the Japanese Self Defense Forces. This team tries to explore the Special Region, aka the world behind the gate. In doing so, Youji and his team are greatly challenged by the people in the Special Region who continuously attack them. However, they manage to surpass them and begin helping the locals. Youji even ends up helping Princess Piña Co Lada from an ancient dragon and a band of marauders who have threatened her. Through all their effort, Youji and his team can gain the trust of the locals of the Special Region.
Here Comes the Twist
But obviously, everything doesn’t go as planned, and Youji ends up making Crown Prince Zorzal angry. This is because the crown prince feels betrayed and humiliated by him. As a result, the crown prince decides to get revenge on Youji by attacking Japan. He ends up creating an entire army which first destroys the locals of the Special Region. But, this army acts as if they are from Japan, making the locals so angry that they declare war against Japan.
Despite all this, the Japanese forces don’t lose hope. They remain strong and focused on freeing Princess Pina Co Lada, Emperor Molt Sol Augustus, and Imperial Capital war representatives. All of these people will help restore the balance between Japan and the Special Region. Overall, the plot revolves around maintaining harmony between both the worlds that are connected by the gate.
Gate Anime Season 3 Trailer
As there has been no official declaration regarding Gate Season 3, the trailer has not been out yet. And it is going to be some time now until it airs and it is available for everyone to watch it. With what we expect, the show’s trailer will probably be available later on, around one year from now, aka in 2022. This is because trailers are delivered a month before the delivery date of the show.
