Media Factory, the production company behind the popular series Zero no Tsukaima, announced that production has begun on the third season of the anime. The announcement came with the upcoming release of the thirteenth light novel written by Noboru Yamaguchi and illustrated by Eiji Usatsuka. The thirteenth volume will be released in Japan on the 20th of December.

The first season aired in Japan in 2006 and the second season, Zero no Tsukaima ~Futatsuki no Kishi~, wrapped up this past September. The licence to the first season is held by Geneon, but with their recent pull out of anime distribution, it is still up in the air whether Zero no Tsukaima will ever touch down in North America.

There is no date set on a release yet, but I'd expect a similar summer release as the second series.

another season?!
two season is enough I think...
The first season was enjoyable to watch, the second season was ok (actually, the last episode was the only good episode...) but a third season, it's too much!

If Saito had stayed dead the ending to season 2 would have been a lot better.
Of course I didn't want him to die, but the irony would have been wonderful.
A guy who doesn't like war, and didn't want anything to do with it gave up his life to protect the ungrateful girl that he loved. I think I would have shed a tear or two.

Instead we get some kind of miracle fairy and the bratty Louise goes atomic on Saito again! *rolls eyes* I hope that season 3 is written better.

There was a bit too much of Agnes dominating the plot of season 2... and although it was nice that she finally found out the truth of what happened to her village, I didn't really see her develop as a character. She was still bitter and wanted to kill the guy who just ate a fireball to save her life!! The only thing that stopped her is that he died before she got the chance!

It would be funny if the 'rumor' of Agnes liking girls develops. But she seems to repressed to show her love outwardly for anyone. The only one that is more repressed and dishonest about her feelings is Louise!! I was really surprised she agreed to wear that silly catgirl outfit. Seems like pointless fanservice to me. Anyways, here's to a better season 3! When does the first episode air??

NO for the same tsundere jokes.
NO for more BAKA INU

If there's any more baka inu, I think I might just set something on fire.

Hmmm I was already satisfied from the first 2 seasons but a 3rd one can't hurt =)

I'm anxiously watching for this series.

Can't wait for third season. The second season ending left me empty

I'm looking forward to the third season.
But it looks like there is no story to be continued.
I just miss Saito and louise about their funny act in the series.

It will be out not too long after Shakugan no Shana season 2 is completed seeing as they use the same voice actors for both series.
Any source whatsoever? I understand if that's only speculation but voice production is quite complicating. Kugimiya Rie is currently on 8 different airing shows. XD
Agreed. I don't think the shared voice actors are too much of a problem. Rie seems to be holding out fine anyhow (plus I bet she's making quite a penny with so much work). I can bet you that they're already picking the people who'll work on it and starting the first drafts. Though I'm guessing they will wait to air it around the same time Season 1 and 2 were aired.

SO happy to hear about this. Hopefully they will go back to the way the show was in the first season. Although I didn't hate the second season, but show definitely went downhill.
It was made obviously apparent to me again after I rewatched the first season. Even the Harem jokes were funnier back there. Maybe because they were a tad more varied. In Season two, it was ALWAYS the boobs.

3rd season huh..
i'll wait for it xD

hmm... that is good news, there were a lot of unanswered questions, such as if saito is still gonna be a horny dog, or if he is going back to his 'i will protect' personality...

then again, they should at least solve most of the plot related questions.... if not, i will cry

.....That is, until Saito reverted to Horny!Saito at the very end of the ending.


Of course. This is the default state of any red-blooded male.

You are of course in the small minority. I wouldn't say hate either, but I certainly didn't enjoy it as much as the first. As much as some of the purists cry, I thought those last two episodes were the best in the whole season (complete with Badass!Saito, which had been replaced with Wussy!Saito and Horny!Saito up to that point). That is, until Saito reverted to Horny!Saito at the very end of the ending.
