It was announced today that the first two A3! stage plays are going to be getting a movie adaptation.
I’m going to be honest here; this took me by surprise. The A3! series was initially released as a smartphone game back in 2017. A huge amount of downloads caused CYBIRD to release the app in English as well. Then at the beginning of 2020, the series got an anime that kind of got the same treatment as Kingdom, where it only got a few episodes into the series before going on hiatus due to COVID-19.
The series first two stage plays were held in 2018 and 2019. Then they ran two new stage plays in 2019, and two new stage plays in 2020. A new Four Seasons Live 2020 stage play is scheduled to kick off this September.

The first movie, MANKAI MOVIE「A3!」～SPRING & SUMMER～ is based on the first stage play which is slated to be released this coming December. The second film MANKAI MOVIE「A3!」～AUTUMN & WINTER～ is slated for a release sometime in 2022.
If you’re interested in checking out the series before the A3! films hit, the anime has resumed airing as of April 2020, and is also streaming on Funimation.
