Nanbaka or Nanbaka – The Numbers is a Comedy anime series produced by Satellite studio. It is based on the manga series created by Shō Futamata. The title of the series is a portmanteau word that makes up the prison’s name by playing with Japanese word for “number” and “Baka” which means “fool”. This Comedy presents to us the lives of four prisoners at Nanba – the prison in question. The bone-tickling series has been received quite well by anime fans, who are anticipating Nanbaka Season 3 to return.
The first season aired on 5 October 2016 and was followed by a sequel and an OVA special in 2017. It’s been a long time since we last heard about the continuation of the series and we’re all worried for the future of a possible third season.

Nanbaka Season 3 Official Announcement
As far as the future of the series is concerned, it seems less likely that the series will be returning with a third installment in the near future. The creators of the show have also been pretty quiet on the topic and haven’t shared any updates regarding the renewal of the series for Season 3.

Nanbaka Season 3 Release Date
As of now, no release date has been marked for Season 3. Ultimately, the adaptation of a series depends on the availability of source material, which is very scanty at the moment. Out of the currently existing 8 volumes of the manga, 6 have already been utilized in the making of the first 2 seasons. The 2 remaining volumes aren’t enough for a whole season. They can be used to produce special OVA episodes or an animated movie in the coming year. Otherwise, we’ll have to wait longer for the creator of the manga to release more volumes, which seems unlikely at the moment.

The anime explores the lives of four men who are serving their time at the prison “Nanba”, the nightmare of any prisoner. Each of the four inmates has a distinct personality and identity which adds on to the comic elements. The episodes chart out the course of their days spent at the prison and the dynamic that is built thereof.
