The Oregairu Fes 2019 event debuted a new teaser promotional video and teaser visual for the third season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, the television anime of Wataru Watari's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru.) light novel series, on Sunday.

The video also teases that the season will cover the story's ending.
The kanji character "Kan" is shown at the end of many Japanese movies and series as the equivalent of "The End" in English or "Fin" in French. The video teases that the story is heading towards the "final arc." The 14th and final volume of the original light novel series will ship in Japan on November 19.
The returning cast includes:
- Takuya Eguchi as Hachiman Hikigaya
- Saori Hayami as Yukino Yukinoshita
- Nao Tōyama as Yui Yuigahama
- Ayane Sakura as Iroha Isshiki
Kei Oikawa (Hinamatsuri, Outbreak Company) is returning from the second season to direct the new season at studio feel. (Brains Base animated the first season.) Keiichirō Ōchi (Hinamatsuri, The Quintessential Quintuplets), a scriptwriter on the second season, is supervising the series scripts. Yuichi Tanaka (A Certain Magical Index, A Certain Scientific Railgun) is also returning from the second season as character designer.
The novels previously inspired two anime seasons, which Crunchyroll streamed under the titles My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU and My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both seasons on home video in North America. Sentai Filmworks will dub both the first and second season, with a new home video release slated for this year.
Yen Press licensed the novel series and Naomichi Io's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected @ comic manga adaptation for English publication in 2015. The publisher describes the story:
Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. "Youth" is a crock, he believes--a sucker's game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he's sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires--gasp!--optimism?
Watari began the original light novels with illustrations by Ponkan8 in Japan in 2011. The series' final arc began with the 12th volume, which shipped in September 2017. The 14th and final volume was originally slated to ship on April 18, after a delay from November to March, then again to April, but was again delayed indefinitely.
