The Case Study Of Vanitas Season 3 is the anticipated sequel of the popular vampire-mystery anime which first premiered in the Spring of 2021. It has been two years since the last season ended and the viewers are still desperately hoping for its third instalment. So, when will viewers be able to see more of this show?
Well here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not The Case Study Of Vanitas Season 3 will happen in 2023, as well as the likely release date.
The Japanese anime The Case Study Of Vanitas, also known as “Vanitas no Carte“ is an adaptation of the manga written and drawn by Jun Mochizuki the renowned creator of Pandora Hearts.
Studio Bones adapted the manga into a television anime which ran from July to September 2021 for 12 episodes, followed by a second part which aired between January and April 2022 on various local Japanese networks.
Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed the anime outside of Japan, and it received a positive response from viewers for its unique steampunk setting and impressive use of action sequences combined with effective comedy. The adaptation was also praised for its visuals and fantasy elements.
Will there be a Season 3 of The Case Study Of Vanitas?
As of writing, Studio Bones, publisher Square Enix, or any other member of the production committee has not officially renewed the anime for a second season. A lot of anime manages to get a new season right after the first season finale but unfortunately, Higehiro wasn’t one of them.

Moreover, it’s important to note that anime productions sometimes can take years to get renewed for a new season since the decision depends on various factors. Fortunately, it is possible to speculate whether an anime will get a new season or not by carefully evaluating these three factors:
- Availability of source material
We will now examine these factors to see if Vanitas no carte anime will get a sequel or not.
Is there enough material available for the third season of The Case Study Of Vanitas?
The Case Study Of Vanitas is a direct adaptation of manga created by Jun Mochizuki which is published in Square Enix’s Monthly Gangan Joker magazine since December 2015.
The first volume of the manga was released on April 22, 2016, and the latest issue came out on March 20, 2022. A total of ten volumes have been released so far, and the light novel is still ongoing.
The first season of the anime adapted the first 9 volumes leaving behind only 1 volume worth of content to adapt which isn’t enough to create another 12-episode anime season.
Conclusion: our biggest concern for this show’s contention is the lack of source material of the anime since it is the backbone of any anime. It will take year another two years for enough chapters to collect up due to the manga’s slow monthly release. So it will take a very long time for the story to get to a point where they have sufficient material for another season.
Manga Sales and Profitability
Before we proceed, it’s important to understand that most of the anime we watch today are created primarily to promote and boost the sales of its source material (in this case manga).
Sales from the manga and related merchandise are the main source of income for the producers, while revenue from advertising fees, online streaming licensing, and Blu-ray sales are considered secondary
Typically, a 12-episode anime television series costs around $3,000,000 to produce. Therefore, an anime has to make back this much money through merchandise sales and licensing fees to ensure a new season from the producers.
As of January 2023, The Case Study of Vanitas has reached 5.5 million copies in circulation. The manga series is insanely popular in Japan thanks to the author’s veteran status and the numbers have doubled since the anime aired which is good news for a potential sequel.
Conclusion: typically, a manga with 500,000 to 2,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so The Case Study of Vanitas is performing tremendously well with its sales numbers.
Blu-ray/ DVDs and other Merchandise sales
While Blu-rays and DVDs are no longer key players in determining anime success as they used to be back in the 2010s, they are still a great tool to understand a show’s popularity among the general Japanese audience. In general, if an anime’s disc sales are over 3,000, a second season would be promising.
As for Vanitas no Carte, the numbers look favourable for now. According to multiple reliable anime Twitter accounts, the fifth volume of Vanitas no Carte sold a total of 1396 copies in its first week, followed by the sixth volume selling 1074 copies, the seventh selling 1048, and the eighth and last volume selling 1358, with an average of 1200 disc sales per volume, bringing the total to around 7200 copies sold in total.
Conclusion: The series has certainly made a lot of money since the anime debuted, so profitability shouldn’t stand in the way of a sequel either. The first two seasons have proven to be financially successful by increasing the manga sales count and bringing in even more money through Blu-ray, merchandise, and overseas licensing. Therefore, the production committee can now be sure to make enough money from its next project.
Popularity in Japan and the West
The Case Study of Vanitas was already quite popular in Japan prior to the anime’s release, and its popularity has surged even further since then.
It is one of Square Enix’s best-selling titles, with multiple volumes consistently appearing in Oricon’s Top Selling Monthly and Weekly charts.

It has also received a positive score of 7.6/10 on IMDb and a 78% approval rating on AniList. This shows that the popularity of the show is very high even though it is a young series.
Moreover, the series was nominated for the Best Fantasy Award in the Crunchyroll Anime Awards in both 2022 and 2023. It also received five nominations for the Anime Trending Awards.
In conclusion, the series is quite popular in Japan and the West and the series made tons of money from merch sales. so. The only problem is the lack of source material, but if the manga manages to keep the hype alive by continuing to release chapters at a steady pace and the producers remain interested, then we may be able to expect a sequel in the near future.

What will happen in Season 2?
Since the first season covered nine volumes from the manga, the next season will begin with adapting the tenth volume. Yen Press the English distributor of the series describes the story of volume 10 as such:
“Vanitas and Dominique have to face and overcome their own self-loathing in the most dramatic way possible. The fact that they both love Noe too much to hurt him or accept seeing him hurt helps! Jeanne drops in to save Domi. And Noe’s seriously sketchy “teacher” makes his first physical appearance. This is also the volume that puts a new spin on the revelation given at the start of the series that Noe eventually kills Vanitas, something that suggests it as proof not of betrayal but of their closeness and perhaps a promise kept.”
