The series is often compared to the similar title, Highschool DxD. With its identical plot, no wonder why some ecchi fans gave critic to the series. However, the Testament of Sister New Devil somehow became a successful series, gained popularity when it aired.
So, what is it about?
Testament of Sister New Devil is an anime adaptation based on the light novel of the same name. Tetsuto Uesu wrote the series with Nekosuke Ookuma as the illustrator. Kadokawa Shoten, under the Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint, has been published the light novel since 2012. Two manga adaptations then followed in 2013.
Production IMS (Date A Live) adapted it into anime in 2015. The first season premiered on January 8 and concluded on March 26, 2015, with 12 episodes.
Not long after that, Production IMS announced the second season. Titled The Testament of Sister New Devil: Burst, it aired from October 10 to December 12, 2015, listed with ten episodes. The studio also released three OVA between 2015 and 2018.
So, it's been six years since the second season finished. Will we see the harem anime next year? Here is everything we know about the Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3.
Will there be Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3?
We have bad news for you. The studio behind the series, Production IMS, closed its business in 2018. It might stop Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3 from becoming real, but don't let your guard down.
Then, let's take a look at the source material. The anime adaptation sometimes acts as a boost to the source material's sales. In this case, sadly, we can see it like that. Tetsuto Uesu ended the series this year with a total of 13 volumes. So, there is no purpose in making another season. Unless some anime studios want to profit from this popular series, the chance is probably slim.
At least there is enough material for Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3. It might end, but Production IMS didn't cover all of the light novel volumes. From the information we gathered, the first season covered three volumes while the second season adapted four books. Therefore, there is still six books that could be adapted into the third season.
While another studio has not announced the renewal, there is also no confirmation about the cancellation of the series. So, we probably may see Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3 in the future.
The chance might be low, but let's not give up yet.
