The official release date for the 5th season has not been revealed yet. The Cine Talk said that the new season was expected to premiere in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those plans had gone awry. It is now expected to release in 2022-2023.
The second, third, and fourth seasons came out in 2013, 2015, and 2018 respectively. The starting three seasons were made under the same production studio, TNK. The fourth season was switched to another studio called Passione and was directed by Yoshifumi Sueda. The switching of the studio had caused a 3 year gap between the releases. This can mean that there might be a new studio selected for this season.
