The Famitsu game and media news source reports that the Kyo Kara Maoh! fantasy comedy anime will return for a third season on Japan's NHK-BS2 satellite channel, starting in April of 2008. As in previous seasons, the 39 new episodes will continue adapting Tomo Takabayashi and Temari Matsumoto's light novels about a high school boy who was transported to a kingdom of handsome subjects — a kingdom in which he is crowned the ruler.
Director Junji Nishimura (Ranma ½, True Tears), series script editor Akemi Omode (Getbackers, Princess Princess), and the animators of Studio Deen will all return in their respective roles from the first two seasons and OVA spinoff. Likewise, Takahiro Sakurai (Yuri), Toshiyuki Morikawa (Conrad), and Mitsuki Saiga (Wolfram) will reprise their characters. Sogo Vision will collaborate on the production. Geneon Entertainment (USA) Inc. released all of the first season and part of the second in North America before ending its in-house distribution of anime titles.
