If we look at the release dates of past seasons of the Gate series, the second installment of the series premiered on January 9, 2016, and the finale of the series premiered on March 26, 2017. Though there is no official announcement for Season 3, fans are optimistic and expecting many things for the Gate Anime Season 3 because there is plenty of time for the show’s makers to renew the Gate. If we guess, we can expect the third season in the first or second quarter of 2021. Until then, we can only wait for the official announcement of the Gate Anime Season 3. All we can expect is something big from the show makers.
Even though there are plenty of characters in the Gate Anime series, the main ones will continue to feature in Gate Anime Season 3. The main cast includes Youji Itami, Rory Mercury, Lelei La Lalena, Princess Pina Co Lada, and Tuka Luna Marceau.
Before we discuss the expected plot of Gate Anime Season 3, we can recapitulate the old plot of the series for the previous seasons. The Gate Anime show contrasts the modern and fantasy world where the story unfolds like this. One day in modern-day Tokyo, a portal from a different world opens up, and through it, all the soldiers and monsters arrive in Japan, which will lead to the launch of a full-scale invasion on earth. On the other hand, Japan finds it hard to defend the invaders who will turn Ginza’s district into flames. After all of this, the Japanese self-defense forces decide to counterattack and push the invaders back to where they came from.
The Gate Anime season 3 show revolves around a 33-year-old man named Youji Itami, a part of a special reconnaissance team to the other side, also called part of the JSDF task force. Then the story unfolds in different stages, which declare an all-out war on Japan. In the third season, we expect the show to adapt the “Gate: Weigh Anchor Novels,” which focuses on Japan Maritime Self Defense forces instead of the JSDF.
Even though there is no official announcement or trailer for the release of Gate Anime Season 3, a fan has made its self-made Gate Anime Season 3 trailer which you can watch to create your expectations from the upcoming series.
