DanMachi Season 2 Review
The season 2 starts with our typical Bell getting wrecked by an Apollo Familia.
After that, there’s a war game between Apollo and Hestia because Carnell did this, If you are just an anime watcher than the both the first and the second season seem okay. But, if we take light novels into consideration than it turns out the anime is missing a lot of stuff that
is supposed to be in the original story which mostly includes conversations.
However, season 2 is a little slow-paced compared to season 1 but that’s because season 2 has followed the light novel better than season 1.
And, from what is coming next. You’ll see why was season 2 slowly paced compared to the first one.
English dubs of both seasons were also done immediately after their execution which made the fandom even bigger as most anime fans prefer dubs to subs.
Danmachi Light novel
The DanMachi Light novel is also worth reading if you are a light novel reader. It is way better than the anime in terms of ratings and the story is what it actually is.

If you want to learn more without reading the Light novel, you can just head over to the DanMachi wiki fandom and get all the knowledge you need.

So, after the second season. The third season also gets announced and it will happen next year in summer (July 2020) Which appears to be great news for fans because first, they made us wait 4 years for the second season, and now, the DanMachi season 3 will be here before it has barely been a year since the second season ended.
However, on July 4, 2020, the official Twitter account announced that DanMachi 3 is scheduled to start broadcasting and distribution from October 2020. Unless the effects of COVID-19 worsen in Japan, it seems very likely that DanMachi Season 3 will be streaming as planned during the fall 2020 anime season.
This just means that the DanMachi (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon) series is far from complete and is only going to get more and more exposure.
