Yuki Yuna Is A Hero Season 3 will be helmed by returning director Seiji Kishi (Angel Beats!, Assassination Classroom, Asobi Asobase, Classroom of the Elite, Kengan Ashura, Radiant). Writer Makoto Uezu (Akame ga Kill!) will handle the series composition and the script.

Madoka Magica sequel provides stiff competition in the magical girl world once again
When the Yuki Yuna Is A Hero anime TV series first began, it was criticized for its similarities to Madoka Magica since both feature dark-themed stories about magical girls.
The power of friendship was the focus of the first season and the enemy was the Vertex, which some have compared to the Angels in Neon Genesis Evangelion. The second season shifted the focus to the internal challenges and hardships faced by the girls.
While Yuki Yuna Is A Hero Season 3 was initially announced in August 2020, the April 2021 announcement of the release time frame just happened to coincide with the announcement of the Gekijouban Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica: Walpurgis no Kaiten movie sequel. What’s more, the Magia Record Season 2 anime TV series is already in production.
The question is whether YuYuYu Season 3 will be able to take a unique direction with its story or continue to be overshadowed by the Madoka Magica anime series.
Anime fans will just have to wait until the Yuki Yuna Is A Hero Season 3 release date to watch and find out. Stay tuned!
