posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Animator Jun Yamazaki, who handled the animation character designs on the Three Leaves, Three Colors anime, shared a question he received on Wednesday regarding the possibility of a second season of the anime. The question asked how fans could make a second season happen, and the questioner goes on to suggest that TOHO implement a crowdfunding campaign.
Yamazaki then stated that he showed the question to Three Leaves, Three Colors animation producer Shōta Umehara, who then told Jun that while producing a second season would be difficult, they might be able to make something different. Jun then encouraged readers to favorite the Tweet to increase the possibility of the idea being considered.
Umehara similarly shared Yamazaki's Tweet, and is considering "how to respond" to the favorable reception of Yamazaki's Tweet, and said that the anime was a "fun job to work on." Three Leaves, Three Colors director Yasuhiro Kimura then Tweeted on Thursday that he is "always ready to write an episode 13" (the show ran for 12 episodes). He then suggested an idea for an essay manga that would reveal behind-the-scenes details of the anime's production, or a book compilation of the layouts and key frames from the anime.
The series premiered in April 2016. Funimation streamed the anime with English-subtitles as it aired in Japan, and later provided a dub. The show is also currently streaming on Crunchyroll. Funimation released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD last July.
