After the overwhelming success of season 1, fans of the “Megalobox” anime did not immediately know if a continuation of the series awaited them. The story of a big win for a talented guy with no name was so popular with viewers that season 2 of the anime seemed obvious. However, new episodes had to wait for 3 long years. What do we know about Season 3 so far?
Release date for Season 3 of the anime “Megalobox”
Since “Megalobox” is an adaptation of a completed manga, the anime should have completeness too. On the other hand, no one can forbid and further develop the history of a talented boxer. So should we wait for season 3? No information available at the moment, but there is hope. There is a hope to see again acquaintances and such beloved main characters.
Given that the gap between the first two seasons was 3 years, the conclusion suggests itself that season 3, if released, will be in the spring of 2024. However, we know that it can take less time to create one anime season, for example, one year. Therefore, we are waiting for the premiere of new episodes in 2022.
Anime “Megalobox”: which characters in the title role?
- The protagonist of the anime is a Megaloboxer guy originally introduced as Junk Dog. He participated in fixed fights in order to earn money and measure his strength with serious opponents. However, he meets only weak boxers, while Junk Dog had to lose to them, because the people demanded a show!
In general, no one knows his real name, because “Joe” is just a pseudonym indicated on a fake ID created to participate in the Megalonia tournament. In season 2, he is called Nomad, which is also a pseudonym.
- The meeting between Junk Dog and Yuri became fateful for the main character – after that Joe decided to get to the Megalonia tournament and defeat Yuri.
