Don't worry. I have faith there will be a third season of Magi. They did way too much setting up in the second season to drop it there. Plus, all the good stuff in the manga happens after the second season ends.

We had only a 6 month gap between the end of the first series and the start of the second, and in a bit more than a month, we'll be one year from when the second series ended.

The first series sold well (an average of 7,226 per volume), but the second series managed to average only 2,884. I'm not certain for the reason for the dramatic drop, but that would have to give the production committee pause about green lighting a third series.

As it was an evening anime, not a late night one, ratings would also factor in.


Unfortunately, "setting up" for another season only means the people writing and producing it planned for another series. It certainly doesn't mean they'll get one. I expect at least half the people that have posted in this thread could quickly cite several examples of series that left a clear path for a sequel, but never got it.




Well, the gap (as Metazoxan above me pointed out) is probably due to the relative progress of the manga. The second season was "in between" territory story-wise so I'm not surprised it wasn't as lucrative as the first.

There is clearly still interest, though, since they've produced 3 Sinbad spinoff OAVs and have another one coming out in April.

You're right that there are definitely series that got cut short but what I meant by my post is that I strongly believe a 3rd season is coming eventually. I follow the manga and I'd guess it would at least have to be the middle of this year to possibly next year before they have enough material.

I've been waiting ever since the 2nd season ended and literally look at Animenewsnetwork EVERYDAY for that third season announcement even though I know that they don't have enough material to work with yet. But I also believe.. or rather I want to believe that a third season is coming.

I have heard alot of people say that it's very likely, but then again that doesn't say anything as nobody really knows what the studio is planning to do.

So this thread shows up and I wanted to cry, but nvm it's about the second season. (─‿─)

I hope you are right, as I too would love to see a third series. My degree of confidence it will happen is substantially lower, however.
