OtapediaA3! Season Autumn & Winter


Mankai Company is an all-male theater troupe with a big problem: it’s down to its last member and debt collectors are knocking at the door. Now it’s up to Izumi Tachibana, the director of the troupe and the daughter of the previous director, Yukio Tachibana, to find a way to save the company and return her father’s theater to the popularity of its glory days.


A3!, short for Act! Addict! Actors!, began as a mobile game developed by Liber Entertainment. The anime adaptation was announced in February 2019 and is broken up into two parts, A3! Season Spring & Summer and A3! Season Autumn & Winter. A3! Season Spring & Summer began airing in January 2020, and A3! Season Autumn & Winter was scheduled to begin airing in July but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The anime is being directed by Masayuki Sakoi at P.A.Works with series composition by Naoki Hayashi, Nozomi Nagatomo adapting Ryo Fujiwara’s original character designs for animation, and Masaru Yokoyama and Kana Hashiguchi creating the music. The anime will premiere in Japan on Oct. 12 on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS11. It will be available for overseas viewers to stream through Funimation.
