The anime looks to be releasing based on its gaming counterparts
The horror genre is greatly loved by the anime community. Diabolik Lovers, known as Diaborikku Ravāzu in Japanese is a mystery horror anime series. The anime is based in the interactive game released for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) on October 11, 2012. After the game released, it was soon adapted into a manga series, and the next year, on September 16, 2013 the anime released.
There were many fans who were already familiar with the game and the anime was well received, even though the ratings were pretty low. It still got enough revenue and recognition that a second season was green lit and aired on September 24, 2015. Fans are currently waiting for the third season.
Possibilities of a third outing
The series currently has six games to its credit. The last outing, called Diabolik Lovers: Lost Eden, released on February 16, 2017, and showed that the game franchise is far from over. It contains enough material for the producers to make another season.
The anime is a byproduct of the games, and hence ratings and numbers it earns doesn’t concern the makers as the games are the top priority. So, as long as more games release, it’s safe to assume that the anime will be continuing as well. However, we cannot confirm when the third season can air, as we still haven’t received an official confirmation from the studio.
The story is about how Komori Yui, a beautiful teenage girl gets sent away to a new town where she is expected to live alone as her father is forced to work overseas. Her new home is a mansion where she encounters a young man who looked dead. Soon she finds out that he is one among six brothers and they are all vampires and she is their victim. The story continues from there.
