The official website has also revealed a key visual:
Dog Days manga artist Takuya Fujima had reported in November 2012 that a third season of the anime adaptation had been green-lit. Dog Days animator Katsuya Kikuchi then noted on Twitter in June that the announcement was not a lie and that the show was still happening. He asked his followers to please wait a little longer for more information.
Masaki Tsuzuki (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) is credited as the original creator of the Dog Days franchise. The studio Seven Arcs (Asura Cryin', Sekirei, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) animated the first two seasons that premiered in 2011 and 2012. In the story, Princess Millhiore (Yui Horie) of the Biscotti Republic decides to summon a brave warrior from an alternate world to defend her country from the neighboring fiefdom of Galette. The "brave warrior" turns out to be a boy named Shinku (Mamoru Miyano) from modern-day Japan.
Tsuzuki and Fujima penned a one-volume spinoff manga in various Kadokawa magazines in 2011.
