Hitori no Shita The Outcast is a supernatural-horror anime dealing adapted from a Chinese webcomic called “Iren Zixia” or “Under One Man.” written by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta. Outcast in one word has been very successful in terms of ratings and earnings. Outcast is what we would describe as a weirdly nice series, weird because certain things about this anime don’t fit the conventional anime making, for example, it’s a joint work of both Japanese and Chinese Productions or the fact that the production rate is surprisingly slow which does not fit with the amount of popularity it has. After reading this article you will find another peculiarity about this anime. Till then, the success of Outcast’s first two seasons can be explained by its marvelous use of direction and graphics. The production certainly made good use of VFX, just in the right amount in the first two seasons. Also, there is something different about the horror and display of the supernatural in this anime that makes it stand out from other animes of this genre.
It is obvious that fans LOVE this anime and hence everyone is expecting a season 3 or has it been already released. Keep reading to find out!
Outcast Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of Outcast has already been released. Many fans are unaware of this fact because of the Chinese censorship. Yes, Season 3 is out but only in China. There are no answers as to why but one possible explanation is that Season three is purely a product of the Chinese Production house. There has been no involvement whatsoever by the Japanese production house that was earlier also part of the project. This makes the anime’s Season 3 seem like a lowkey affair that the Chinese production wants to keep to themselves as of now. If you try to search Season 3 online you will get episodes of seasons 1 and 2 only and even if you do find the episodes of season three, that is through illegal means, there are of no use as there won’t be any subtitles because there hasn’t been any subtitling work been done let alone subtitling the anime in English. it is speculated that if season 3 drops with English subtitles then it will take a long time.
For the present fortunate watchers of Season 3 of Outcast, Congratulations. According to the reviews or what we have heard, Season 3 is the best one so far, purely based on the use of amazing quality VFX and just as amazing of a storyline. We hope that the production drops the English subtitles version of it soon!

The so-far story of Outcast is about a young boy living in a void of the truth about his powers. With the death of his father is no one to tell him. The reason why his father refrained from informing this poor little kid was to protect him from himself. Having experience of how dry and worthless life gets at a point with this ancestral power is intellectual reasoning behind his decision to keep him in the dark. However, after his death, our protagonist is left alone. On a lonely walk one night he sees something strange and while he does so, a strong blow hits his head. As he wakes up he sees that the abnormal person digging the ground that he saw before is still going on while a strange girl asks for help. The protagonist using a knife saves the girl who later inspires him to chase his instincts, follow his dreams, and self-actualize.
