The official Twitter account of the currently airing 3-gatsu no Lion 2nd Season has announced that following the broadcast of episode 16 on February 3, the succeeding episode will air on March 3. The three-week break after the initially scheduled broadcast is due to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics to air at NHK G.

3-gatsu no Lion is a manga series written by Chika Umino that began serialization under Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine since July 13, 2007. It has released 13 compiled manga volumes, with the latest shipped on September 27, 2017, and was recently ranked 24th of last year's Japan's Yearly Manga and Light Novel Rankings for accumulating 728,376 volume sales.

Studio Shaft animates the adaptation since the first season that aired for 22 episodes from October 2016 to March 2017. The second season premiered on October 14, 2017, and is also listed for 22 episodes.

Both seasons of the anime are licensed for North American distribution with English dub casting by Aniplex USA. The first Blu-ray volume was released in December last year.

I prefer watching anime than over doped athletes. At least anime doesn't cheat on us.

God knows SHAFT can always use the extra time. Their work tends to have some animation problems until they have time to fix it in BD releases.

I mean let's be real, watching the winter olympics is gonna be way more entertaining than this anyway so I don't really mind

Of course in a perfect world one should be able to get both at the same time though

Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

Well, at least there is going to be an episode before the break. I don't like it when they suddenly announce there is no episode after waiting for a week.

Is your favorite girl winning literally the only thing you care about?

I mean I like her too, but romance isn't even a subgenre in Sangatsu, come on.

More or less a good news for me to catch up with this series then afterwards use the time during the hiatus on the shows I'm currently watching.

3-gatsu's been very good so far 👌

At least they announced the break with a few days notice, but since this is one of the best shows that I've watched in quite a long time, this news does sadden me. D=

You dropped it at episode 2. You can't really say that the rest of it is boring when you haven't seen it.

That's not what I was implying either. Merely that I think watching the olympics is quite a lot of fun

What is good about this anime ?!

I did not watch it but the characters looks ugly, and genre looks bad. Has slice of life tag and 95% of slice of life anime I've seen are bad. I also don't like slow paced anime

Also, I don't trust MAL score. Kimi no Na wa is average, and Summer Wars is trash. Both are rated too high on MAL

Noo!! I'd watched first season very fastly and this anime is really precious for me so i was planning to watch it slower. I was looking forward to start 2nd season after episodes piled up, yesterday i said "ok, i can start it now" and watched first episode.. Now there is a broadcast hiatus :'( Probably i will need to wait on that hiatus now :(

After a quick look at your favourites it is clear you don't have any taste anyway. Like seriously Code Geass sucks and is heavily overrated. I take a further look down and see that you rated another a 10 and elfen lied a 9, let's just stop there...

Too bad and there goes my Saturday relaxation.
But i guess you can't compare against the Olympics though.
Looking forward to seeing to seeing Rei, Hina and Akari again after its back to normal.

Damn this kinda sucks, I was hype for the next episode. At least the break takes place after a cliffhanger... The best time for a hiatus :/

I mean I'm fine with this I guess?

But it sucks though.

The reason why I say it's fine for me btw it's because with that I can focus on the stuff I'm currently doing while watching some other stuff from the season on that day so it won't be that heavy.
