The website for the third Yuruyuri television anime season, Yuruyuri San Hai!, updated on Saturday with a new visual, broadcast premiere information, and details on the theme songs and character songs.

The anime will premiere on TV Tokyo on Monday, October 5 at 2:05 a.m. It will then premiere on TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting Co., Ltd. later on October 5, on TV Hokkaido on October 6, on TV Osaka and TV Aichi on October 7, and on TV Setouchi on October 8. AT-X will run the anime on October 9 with repeats the following week. A new Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi!+ episode will air before the third season on September 17.

The opening theme song "Chochocho! Yuruyuri Kapuriccho!!" by the main voice actresses (as Nana Mori Chū☆Goraku-Bu) will go on sale on October 28. The CD single will also have another unnamed song, as well as the karaoke versions of both songs. The 1,500-yen (about US$12) limited first edition will add a DVD with the music video for the opening, as well as a character card of Akari or Chinatsu.

The ending theme song "Acchu~ma Seishun!" by Nana Mori Chū☆Goraku-Bu will also go on sale on October 28. The single will include the ending theme, another unnamed song, and the karaoke versions of both songs. The limited first pressing of the CD single will include a character card of Kyōko or Yui.

The first two Yuruyuri Uta♪Solo! CDs for Akari Akaza and Chinatsu Yoshikawa will go on sale on November 4. The next two for Kyōko Toshinō and Yui Funami will follow on November 18.

The cast performed "Yuriyurararara Yuruyuri Death Jiken" as "Metal Goraku-Bu" with former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman (Detroit Metal City, Naruto Spin-Off: Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, Maria Watches Over Us 3rd Season) on the second night of the Animelo Summer Live 2015 concerts on Saturday. Hiroki Yasumoto narrated, and the Animelo Summer Live's stage band performed the music.

The various Yuruyuri anime projects adapt Namori's manga about four fun-loving schoolgirls who take over the former room of a tea ceremony club for their own "Goraku-bu" (amusement club).

The main staff, while different from the first two seasons, will return from the Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! original video anime (OVA) for the third season. Hiroyuki Hata (Recently, my sister is unusual., Kamichu!) is directing the series at TYO Animations (Samurai Warriors, Tamayura - Hitotose). Motohiro Taniguchi (Recently, my sister is unusual.) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Makoto Fukami (Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden, Psycho-Pass) is joining the staff and work with Hata on the scenario.

The main cast will also return.

The first anime series premiered in Japan in July 2011, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The 12-episode sequel series Yuruyuri♪♪ premiered in July 2012, and Crunchyroll also streamed that series as it aired. The Yuruyuri Nachu Yachumi! original video anime project shipped in February, after running in theaters last November.

JManga and ALC Publishing released part of the original manga digitally in English before JManga shut down in 2013. NISA has licensed and released both previous seasons in North America.
