Classroom of The Elite Season 3 will continue the epic journey of Ayanokouji, and it’s officially confirmed. So a new season is coming soon, so fans can look forward to the upcoming season of this anime.
With two seasons, Classroom of The Elite is already such a popular anime series that season 3 was announced before season 2 even aired. The sequel was planned in conjunction with the second season. However, it is still great news for fans.
When will Classroom of The Elite Season 3 be coming out? What can fans expect from the plot of Season 3? These are questions we will answer about the next season in this post.
You will learn when Classroom of The Elite Season 3 will be released, what light novel volumes the new season will use, and all other relevant information about season 3.
So, if you want to learn more about Classroom of The Elite anime season 3 and the release date, keep reading.
When Is Season 3 Of Classroom of The Elite Coming Out?
To find out when Classroom of The Elite season 3 is coming out, we need to look at two things: the availability of source material for the next season and the success of the second season.
First, let’s talk about source material. It refers to the original content the anime is based on, such as a manga or light novel series. If there is enough material available, it’s more likely that the show will get a new season fast.
The second factor is the financial success of the previous season. If the second season was popular and made a lot of money, it’s more likely that the production company will want the third season out as fast as possible.
So, by looking at these two factors, we can get a good idea of the Classroom of The Elite season 3 release date and whether a season 4 will follow.
Now let’s quickly look at both.
Classroom of The Elite: Season 3 Light Novel And Manga
The source material for the Classroom of The Elite anime is a light novel series written by Shōgo Kinugasa. As of March 2023, there have been 11 volumes published for the first year of COTE, and the second year has nine books so far.
The Classroom of The Elite manga has been completed for Year 1, consisting of 12 volumes, and there are currently two volumes available for the second year.
There is currently no news of when Year 2 volume 10 will be released. However, the author plans to continue the story and also release the third year. So the Classroom of The Elite light novel is ongoing, and the ending is still far off.
|Volume||Year||Covered in Anime|
|Volumes 1,2,3||First Year||Season 1|
|Volumes 4,4.5,5,6,7||First Year||Season 2|
|Volumes 8, 9, 10, 11, and 11.5||First Year||Season 3|
|Volumes 1,2,3,4||Second Year||Season 4|
|Volumes 5,6,7,8||Second Year||Season 5|
The first and second seasons covered volumes 1 to 7 of the light novel. The third season will likely use volumes 8 to 11,5 of the first year. So there is currently material available even for a potential fourth season after the third one.
The third season doesn’t need to wait for new volumes to be released, so Classroom of the Elite Season 3 should be released soon. This series will have no problems with source material anytime soon.
Classroom of The Elite: An Analysis of Profit and Sales
The Classroom of The Elite Blu-ray had low sales, with each volume only selling around 1,300 copies. That was for the first season. The second season BD sold much better, with the first volume selling more than 7,000 copies. That’s great!
While Blu-ray sales are not as important as they used to be due to the popularity of streaming services, they can still help an anime secure additional seasons if the sales are strong.
The latest light novel volume of Classroom of The Elite, published on February 25, 2023, volume 9, sold more than 100,000 copies. The success of light novels in Japan is impressive, as it is one of the best-selling series per volume.
|Classroom of The Elite Sales and Profit|
|Blu-ray Sales||1,300 copies per volume for the first season, 7,000 for the second one|
|Light Novel Sales||Around 100,000 copies per book|
|Number of Copies in Print||6 million copies in circulation as of February 23, 2022|
|Manga Sales||Less than 25,000 copies|
|Merchandise Numbers||Around 300 after the second season|
The latest manga volume of Classroom of The Elite did not perform well. It didn’t rank on Oricon even once. It sold fewer than 25,000 copies. Everyone is buying light novels, so the manga is just extra.
There was very little merchandise available for Classroom of the Elite, but now there are a little more, 300 pieces and 13 figures. It should be much more for such a popular series, but it’s an improvement.
I can tell you that the second season of Classroom of The Elite is doing much better than the first one did. If the third season can do even better, the fourth and fifth seasons aren’t just a dream.
Classroom of The Elite Season 3 Release Date
As of March 2023, The Classroom of The Elite Season 3 doesn’t have a release date, even if it is confirmed. However, the release date for the third season of Classroom of The Elite is likely July 2023.
The third season is coming out soon, likely at the same time as season two did, so July 2023.
If The Classroom of The Elite season 3 release date is July, we should get a trailer soon. Full trailers are released 3 to 9 months before a new season of anime premiers.
Also, the COTE Season 3 Episode 1 release date should be in 2023, but Kadokawa stated they want to improve the quality of the adaptation, so maybe it will be coming out later because of that.
The studio behind this series, Lerche, did not do the best job with the animation. That’s likely holding this series back a lot.
Likely MF Bunko J, the publisher, even regrets the second season quality. This series could be huge if it had at least the quality of Oregairu. Still, we are lucky it got a new season since the first season didn’t sell well.
In the next few months, we should find out more about the release date of the third season of Classroom of The Elite. I’ll update this post if there is new information on the official Twitter account.
Also, expect a fourth season of Classroom of The Elite since it looks like Kadokawa realized they stuck gold. Let’s hope the second year will get a high-quality adaptation.
