What we know so far about DanMachi Season 4 and any relevant news. We will continue to add to this post with the latest information, rumours, and analysis. In the meanwhile, let’s take a closer look at the facts.
As long as the anime hasn’t caught up to the DanMachi light book series (see the comparative section below for additional details), the most important question is whether the most recent seasons have maintained their popularity.
Japanese anime series are still judged on how well they perform financially, even if Blu-Ray/DVD sales have been supplanted by streaming money in recent years. There were 5,200 DVD sales in 2015 for season one, whereas there were 2,663 disc sales in 2019.
This series’ popularity in Japan continued to dwindle even though the third season featured a more compelling narrative. The Blu-Ray/DVD release date for Season 3 of DanMachi was December 23, 2020. After just a few days, it sold 2,224 copies.
DanMachi Season 4 – Announcement!
Sword Oratoria sold just 1,316 copies, which might explain why DanMachi: Sword Oratoria Season 2 has yet to be announced.)
For streaming popularity, Crunchyroll stated in 2019 that the second season was in the top 20 for most popular anime for the summer 2019 season.
Because the list on Crunchyroll is alphabetical rather than numerical (which they never give), it is difficult to determine the size of the audience.
On Crunchyroll’s popular anime list, the third season placed in the top eight. Despite the fact that Haikyuu!! is a lot more popular, While Fire Force, Re:Zero (which is currently on vacation until Re:Zero Season 2 Part 2 in 2021) and even the InuYasha sequel Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon were losing against DanMach in Season 4 Part 2, DanMach was still winning.
According on those statistics, the anime production committee was able to justify the continuation of DanMachi Season 4 production. Within six months after the premiere date, the release date is usually known.
As a result, the DanMachi Season 4 premiered in Summer 2022.
When can Americans watch DanMachi Season 2 on Netflix?
In early February of 2020, the Netflix U.S. began broadcasting the anime Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon.
Netflix Japan is presently streaming the second season. Although DanMachi Season 2 has yet to be released on Netflix U.S. as of January 2022, DanMachi Seasons 3 and 4 have not been confirmed by Netflix U.S.
The second season is currently accessible on Hulu, VRV, HIDIVE, and Crunchyroll. On Crunchyroll and VRV, you can catch up on the third season.
The 3rd episode of DanMachi has been confirmed.
There has already been a beach episode published as an Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? parody, with Hestia and Ais in bikinis. To continue the concept, there will be an OVA 2 episode released in January 2020. DanMachi OVA 3 will have a hot springs theme this time around.
To what extent is it wrong for a man to try to seduce a woman in a dungeon? It’s a hot spring in Orario, isn’t it? – Forever the Hot Spring’s God. Warner Bros. has provided this description of the plot.
A Dungeon is a Bad Place to Meet Women? On April 28, 2021, OVA 3 will be released.
Anime vs. manga/light novels by DanMachi
This season of DanMachi is based on the Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? manga. Light book series by Fujino Omori and Suzuhito Yasuda (Dungeon ni Deai wa Motomeru no ha Machigatteiru Darou ka?)
The books were up to DanMachi Volume 17 as of April 22nd, 2021.
There have been two significant DanMachi spin-off tales from the main series. Although the author has mentioned writing about other characters and organisations in the future, Familia Chronicle is now confined to Episodes Ryuu and Freya alone.
Ais Wallenstein’s exploits are the centrepiece of DanMachi: Sword Oratoria, a more extensive offshoot. In this other reality, the events begin prior to the appearance of Bell.
Volume 13 and Volume 20 of the Sword Oratoria manga and light novel series have already been released.
Yen Press is publishing the official English translation of the DanMachi light novel and manga series in North America. By the 27th of July in the year 2021, the official English translations of light novels had Is It Illegal To Approach Women in Dungeons? The sixteenth issue of the magazine.
DanMachi Volume 17 has not yet been released in English.
All three stories are being adapted for the DanMachi manga series. Kunieda is drawing the manga’s primary plot, which Omori is writing.
It was in June 2018 when Volume 10 of DanMachi manga was released, however in September 2018 the DanMachi manga went on extended hiatus Volume 11 was released on July 22, 2020, after the manga restarted.
A new numbering system was introduced in DanMachi manga volume 11, which is now officially known as DanMachi II volume 1. The red light district plot arc from Season 2 of the anime was first tackled in Volume 11. Unfortunately, this implies that the main manga’s plot is lagging behind the anime series, which is a problem.
As for the English publication of the DanMachi manga, Yen Press has actually kept up with the Japanese release, except for manga Volume 11.
Five books were adapted for the first season of the anime. During the first season of the TV programme in 2015, the animation was already catching up to the original material (Volume 7 was released in April 2015).
There is a lot of stuff to work with as the second season only adapted three volumes, Volumes 6, 7, and 8. The third and DanMachi Season 4 are expected to follow suit.
DanMachi Season 4: Plot!

One of the reasons why the rate of book adaptations slowed down was because the novels were getting longer. While the first five books varied from 208 to 288 pages, Volume 6 had 272 pages, Volume 7 had 384 pages, and Volume 8 had 400 pages!
As Volume 8 was mostly devoted to side storylines, the J.C. Staff writers totally omitted chapters devoted to establishing side characters when condensing the plot for Season 2. DanMachi OVA episodes would make sense because Volume 8 is made up of vignettes.
The third episode of DanMachi Season 3 was based on pages 187 to 322 of Volume 9 DanMachi Season 3 Episode 4 completed the last 53 pages and launched onto Volume 10, which was completed by Episode 8.
It’s a good thing that the first three episodes had a quick pace, because the next two volumes were covered in nine episodes. J.C. Staff made the right decision, because the meat of the Xenos narrative will be revealed in Volume 11.
The good news is that DanMachi Season 4 has a lot of stuff to work with. It’s even better if you’re a fan of DanMachi in English, because you can leap to Volume 12 and read into Season 5!
