Definitely before 2020. All seasons have debuted in Spring, but this time Bones made a movie too, so that might push the date further ahead. I'll put my money on Summer or Fall next year, but I wouldn't be surprised if Bones cranked it out in next Spring again.
OP shoulda made the poll according to anime season for a more accurate date instead of this jumbled poll:
I guess it'd be either Spring or Summer season based on previous seasons and just cause these 2 seasons is where they cram the usual big mainstream shows so I picked Mid 2019.
I also vaguely remember them saying the sub-studio working on S3 is not planning any other show in 2 years prior to the S4 announcement so they probably wont sit on S4 for long after S3 ended.
Probably Spring 2019, since it was when the past seasons aired, there are enough material and Bones is getting a lot of money from this. Not too early bc they want to submit something good but not too late because they will want the $$
Early= January, February, March and April
Mid= May, June, July and August
Late= September, October, November and December
This anime clearly airs by seasons, it can't start in the middle of a season, so out of all the months the month choices should only be January (winter 2019 season starts), April (spring 2019), July (summer 2019) or October (fall 2019)
And I don't think we'll see it earlier than spring 2019.
It’s either gonna be January or April and April is the safest bet. While I don’t think Ace Attorney is going to have enough material to be 2 cours, the last few years YTV/NTV have had the 5:30pm anime slot air anime that lasted for 25-ish episodes. Hence why I think January is a possibility, but maybe a little farfetched.
ALL BNHA seasons have always aired in April, as “Spring-summer anime” so I think s4 will do the same. They probably started animating it the second s3 started airing. Bones is working hard on My Hero Academia, so no wonder if they’re ready to show us the new season in Early 2019 in the spring 19’ category :)
Honestly they should wait a little longer and rather than producing a 2 cour season they should go for 4 cours. It's really dumb to produce 2 cour one after the other, if they go this way then how many seasons are we getting 10 ?
Sometime around Spring ‘19 or Summer ‘19 really. Earlier two seasons have all been Spring, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Season 4 were to follow the same trend, but i have a feeling this time it’ll be Summer.
If it's 2-cour, definitely Summer 2019 or beyond. This thing is getting very close to the manga. If they keep this up, then season 5 is 3 years (2021) away from getting it's adaptation since you need to keep in mind that the manga needs to get away and them the production time.
Well, since every season has been released in april... All my bets that this new season will be release in april to keep the tradition!
Also I dont think that with the rhythm that the anime has it will catch up with the manga any time soon, let me explain why:
BNHA 1 season, 13 chapters
Apr 3, 2016 to Jun 26, 2016
adapted chapters: 1 - 21
when the anime began the manga was by the 84th or 85th chapter. When the anime ended it had through chapter 100 approximately, about 79 chapters of difference with the anime.
BNHA 2 season, 25 chapters
Apr 1, 2017 to Sep 30, 2017
adapted chapters: 22 - 70, 48 chapters approximately.
When the anime began the manga was by chapter 131 or 132. At the end of the anime the manga had through chapter 153 or 154 approximately, about 83 or 84 chapters of difference with the anime.
BNHA 3 season, 25 chapters
Apr 7, 2018 to Sep 29, 2018
adapted chapters: 71-124, 55 chapters approximately.
When the anime began the manga was by the chapter 177 or 178. When the anime ended this weekend the manga had 200 chapters, about 76 chapters of difference with the anime.
Many people saying that if BNHA keep releasing seasons at this pace it will catch up the manga... haha no. Without counting that season 2 and 3 have some filler chapters, it is maintaining one season per year adapting about 50 chapters (except in season 1), and the manga release about 50 chapters per year approximately. You can say it has material for almost a 5th season and if they stay with the pace leading up to now, it can release seasons until the manga ends ... or until it will be no popular enough to be able to financially support another season, but seeing BNHA popularity right now I doubt it, I hightly doubt it.
