Expected plot for Season 3
In an overall view, the plot is set around a city called Orario. It is the origin of some myriad and menacing underground tunnels which are known as dungeons. Menacing in a sense as the tunnels are inhabited by some of the most vicious monsters. A group of enthusiastic adventurers named Familias, explore the tunnels and pick fights with the monsters. They eventually kill all the monsters and come upon a crystal whose power can be utilized to make powerful weapons and magical items. Among these adventurers is a boy named Bell Cranel who wishes to be the greatest adventurer of all time. In his quest for achieving the title, he meets a goddess named Hestia and with her help, he pursues his dream of becoming the greatest adventurer of all time.
The third season is based on the 9th, 10th, and 11th volumes of the novel series. The most anticipated arc that fans are most eager to see in season 3 is the Xena Arc. This arc has a strong chance to be present in the upcoming season and might include some spectacular fights.
