The 14th volume of the manga adaptation of Wataru Watari’s My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU! (original Japanese title: Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru or OreGairu for short) light novel series has just revealed that the manga is on its “last spurt”.
The manga is illustrated by Naomichi Io and was launched last 2012 in Shogakukan’s Sunday GX magazine. Yen Press handles the license for both the light novel and the manga’s English releases since 2015.
Just this November, it was announced that OreGairu’s third season is set for a Spring 2020 premiere. No specific dates have been released as of this writing.
Kei Okawa, who directed the second season of OreGairu, is set to return for the third season. Keiichiro Ochi replaces Shotaru Suga as in charge of series composition, and Yuichi Tanaka returns as character designer. The 3rd season will still be produced by animation studio feel.
OreGairu tells the story of apathetic student Hachiman Hikigaya who views the world and life in a pessimistic manner. When he submits an essay scathingly mocking social relationships, his teacher gives him a unique punishment: he is forced to join the Volunteer Service Club, a group that extends a helping hand to anyone in school that needs it. He reluctantly joins “ice queen” Yukino Yukinoshita—the only other member of the club—in solving other people’s social problems and helping them overcome different issues. With Hachiman’s pessimism and nihilism, how will he fulfill his duties in the club?
Officially named as My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU for international fans, the series started out as a Japanese light novel series written by Wataru Watari and illustrated by Ponkan8. It was first adapted into an anime series last 2013, with Brain’s Base handling the production. A second season, produced by feel, aired from April to June 2015.
