Damn January is too far off, but I'm definitely looking forward to it. I was kinda tempted to read the manga a few times during the past 2 years but I kept putting it off because I really wanted to see it animated instead and I'm glad I waited

Finally we get an annoucement, I was getting a bit worried that we'll never see another season...

I can't wait :D

It was announced last year that we were getting another sequel.


Yeah, I just checked and you're right, I must've missed that somehow....
I thought that the last annoucement we had was about "Seisen no Shirushi" and a vague promise of another season but nothing more.

Ugh, WHERE IS MY MAGI S3 A-1!!!!! D:

Though I like this, but I haven't heard much good about the adaption of the first season.

Jul 17, 5:38 AM by ZoroZoldyck

but if it is only for 12 episodes, that would be another cliffhanger for non manga reader.

Jul 16, 5:42 PM by Zeldriss

yeah people the gang is back

Jul 16, 4:14 PM by Splashback95

Although I lost interest in the manga I'm still gonna give it a chance, maybe the animated version will give me a different impression.
