Fans of the series have been waiting quite a while, so long in fact that there were jokes going around that a third season would never be announced but this weekend that announcement came. YuruYuri‘s mangaka Namori announced that a third anime season for the series has been greenlit. At the moment no exact details have been announced but you can check out the announcement artwork below.
This news comes shortly after an hour long OVA following the cast on a camping trip was released on home video in Japan. Considering NIS America has licensed and released both seasons of the YuruYuri anime in North America, it will be interesting to see if they will pursue the OVA and the third season whenever it makes its debut.
