Streaming service Netflix have recently revealed their March 2019 release schedule, and one of those titles is the final conclusion to The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
The final arc, which had aired on Japanese televisions on 28th December 2018 as a one hour special, is scheduled to hit the streaming service starting Friday 1st March 2019 in Japanese audio with multiple languages for subtitle support. Much like the show’s second season, the final arc is not part of the Netflix Originals slate so there is currently no word for an English audio as of yet.
UPDATE: The final two episodes are now available in Japanese audio with English, Japanese, Arabic, French and Polish subtitles. The episodes are located in the same Netflix page as the previous two seasons.
The anime adaptation was animated by studio J.C.Staff and is based on the manga series written and drawn by Shuuichi Asou. The show’s first season aired in the Summer 2016 season with an English dub produced by Funimation, while the second season aired in the Winter 2018 season. The second season was made available on Netflix in two different batches for the regions outside Japan.
Both the first and second season are already available to watch on Netflix (the first season includes the Funimation English dub also). Funimation have the US & Canadian rights for the first season for home video however they also have UK & Ireland rights for the streaming service Funimation Now (the series was initially available on Crunchyroll, however due to the breakup between Crunchyroll and Funimation back in October 2018, it has since been delisted).
UPDATE! Fans of Saiki K. will be pleased to hear that Netflix have greenlit a new anime series for Saiki K. It’s unknown on whether it’ll be an anime original, re-adaptation or adaptation of the material from post Shonen Jump. This announcement came from a panel during AnimeJapan 2019.
