Kimi ni Todoke Season 3 Trailer Previews Long-Awaited Return

Kimi ni Todoke

In September of last year it was revealed that the anime adaptation of Karuho Shiina’s Kimi ni Todoke manga would be getting a third season over a decade after the second. With Kimi ni Todoke season 3 to finally continue the story on Netflix starting on August 1, 2024, a new trailer is here along with information on the theme song performer.

You can see the new preview and sample the imase opening song, “Et cetera,” below.

The original Kimi ni Todoke manga ran from 2005 to 2017, and the first two seasons of the anime aired from 2009 to 2011, with 38 episodes in total. Here’s how NIS America describes it:

Sawako Kuronuma has had a difficult time fitting in. Some say it’s her jet black hair, others say it’s her hushed manner of speaking, while still others claim it is due to her name’s similarity to Sadako, a character from a popular Japanese horror series. On her first day of high school, Sawako meets the one boy who treats her like a normal girl—Shota Kazehaya. Through his selfless aid, Sawako slowly learns to come out of her shell and even begins to make friends for the first time in her life. However, with a new social life come social pressures. Rumors begin to circulate about her, her friends, and even the kindhearted Kazehaya. As she grows into her new identity, Sawako must learn to deal with such pressures as well as start to understand the unfamiliar feelings inside of her, especially in regards to the boy who made her new start possible.
