Man I don't know why can't they just make another season instead of OVA series. They can't be worried about it not going well.
Another 12 episodes in the span of 1-2 years. Well I guess something is better than nothing

TV restrictions might play some part in that. Going with OVAs, they don't have to worry about that kinda thing

Iie senpai. This brings more titties which is good for an OVA adaptation.

For a harem anime that doesn't have a single heroine past 1K faves in MAL says a lot of the quality of the anime. Also, the main heroine is one of the most retarded heroines ever.

Couldn't watch this anime past episode 5 when it first aired. I'm surprised its still going strong considering its lack of word of mouth.

Nice. Tho I'm still waiting for translation to previous OVAs.

I wonder, could it be OVA format that helps? It allows for much more time to work on it and less censorship. It probably also brings more money.

im waiting for some decent subs for 6-10 episodes and here they have announced season 4 already. this series better get full adaptation now since story is quite close to end i think i heard that 2 more volumes are remaining in the series that will tally the number to 22 volumes. anime has already covered upto 17 skipping few volumes in between and changing some plot to accommodate the skippings.

o 2020 is gonna be a good year! Not the biggest fan of this series but I find myself enjoying it more as I go along. Don't even remember there's a 3rd season but hell yeah definitely would welcome a 4th season! The world needs more magic/fantasy action anime series, that's the one advantage anime has over live action movies.

Obligatory "Iie senpai, watashi-tachi no kenka desu!" lol

The OVAs have been selling like 8k+ BVD/DVD every volume. Good for the series.

Good to see more of this. With all the other bad shows continuing (saw the Mahouka crap now continues as well :D) and a lot of better stuff never being continued. So okay it it is OVA - at least it continues.

Bad art style, bad animation, reliance on random panty shots of kids, pointless derivative stupid plot…etc. Not sure about edgy teens, I thought this kind of show actually appealed more to the young crowd. Im an adult who enjoys grown-up manly things like GaoGaiGar and Granzort.

There are people who watch all the 4-to-6 derivative isekais per season, every season, giving them 10/10...

At least the fights in this one and it's dumb jokes make it a very fine time waster.
