Are you looking for a release date for A Certain Magical Index Season 4, or are you wondering if this anime will receive a new season?
In this article, we’ll provide you with all the information you should know about Index Season 4 in 2023. You will also learn when you may be able to watch the long-awaited new season.
A Certain Magical Index, known as Toaru Majutsu no Indekkusu in Japanese, is a beloved Japanese animated series loved by anime fans worldwide.
The source material for the Index anime is a light novel series. It was written by Kazuma Kamachi and illustrated by Kiyotaka Haimura.
Even in 2023, many fans are eagerly waiting for A Certain Magical Index Season 4. It’s been more than four years since the third season of this anime ended in early 2019.
It’s great to see that a science fantasy series like this has many fans who can’t wait for another season of this anime.
Will A Certain Magical Index receive a fourth season? Let’s address whether or not the anime will continue with New Testament anime.
Will There Be A Season 4 of A Certain Magical Index?
There is currently no official announcement regarding a potential fourth season of A Certain Magical Index anime. However, there are indications that a new season may be coming soon.
It’s worth noting that the interest in a new season of the Index anime is at its lowest level since the first season aired. Nonetheless, as long as the interest level is above 5 in Google Trends, it’s okay.
In 2023, the interest in Index anime is only 8 out of 100, according to Google Trends (see image below).
The popularity of A Certain Magical Index dropped primarily because the third season was poorly received by even long-time fans of the series.
This decline can be attributed to J.C.Staff’s decision to focus all their efforts on the Scientific Railgun series.
Despite this setback, there is still a high chance for A Certain Magical Index Season 4. The third season sold 4,400 Blu-ray copies per volume. That is a decent number for 2018.
Furthermore, the Index series is the best-selling light novel in Japan, with over 31 million copies in print, including spin-offs and manga adaptations.
Additionally, the A Certain Magical Index franchise has generated significant revenue from merchandise and figurines.
There are more than 200 figurines and 600 pieces of merchandise, which is not super crazy for three seasons, but it’s still a good number. However, it’s worth noting that the first two seasons are responsible for 90% of that total.
Some of the figures are truly awesome, such as the Touma Kamijou Action Figure, Index Action Figure, and Accelerator Figure.
The most important thing to note is that more than enough source material is available for a fourth season of A Certain Magical Index. Specifically, seasons one to three already covered all 22 volumes of the Old Testament.
Regarding what remains after season 3, the New Testament light novel comprises 22 volumes and the Genesis Testament includes seven books, providing enough content to produce at least five additional seasons.
I highly recommend checking out the new A Certain Magical Index: The Old Testament Omnibus Edition. It’s all 22 volumes of the original series, plus two short story volumes in one book.
If J.C. Staff and Kadokawa had given the same level of attention to the third season of Index as they did to A Certain Scientific Railgun, they would likely have already made an announcement for the fourth season.
Will there ever be a release date for A Certain Magical Index Season 4? Are there any plans for a new season of this beloved anime series?
A Certain Magical Index Season 4 Release Date
A Certain Magical Index Season 4 is currently without an official release date, as it has not been confirmed yet. However, we may learn more about plans for a fourth season next year – since it’s the 20th anniversary of the A Certain Magical Index light novel.
The 20th anniversary of A Certain Magical Index is a significant milestone for this popular franchise, which has sold over 31,000,000 printed copies worldwide. They are likely to commemorate the occasion with an announcement of the fourth season.
It wouldn’t be surprising if they announced both season 4 of the Index anime and a new season of A Certain Scientific Railgun simultaneously. We will see in 2024.
We can expect to learn more about A Certain Magical Index Season 4 in the near future. I’m optimistic that Kadokawa will announce the sequel soon.
