I'm fine with it being only 17 and not 24-26, it could as well have been 13 or ro.
But this Bakemonogatari-like faggottry is the worst thing possible and will hugely affect my enjoyment of this good series.

watashi kininarimasu! maybe there will be a second season?

or one of the staff members switched with the director and told the staff to turn it into 17 episodes long because he was so tired and confused with the whole story o.O

So it was confirmed. And why all people mention only BMG. How about Ore Imo?

There are 6 novels and two books of side-stories for now so it's a good thing to adapt first for novels for now

It was estimated a while ago that it would probably be around 17 episodes. Nonetheless it really is a shame they couldn't just have a second season instead of shoving Michi Random into the end of this one.

Yeah it was obvious from the prices on the BD solicitation (some volumes are almost ¥9000) that something was up and some discs had more than 2 episodes. I was glad when I saw confirmation of 17 episodes.

On the other hand, it's the same exact mixed feeling I have every time this happens: More of a show I like? Good! Almost guaranteed uncertainty over when we'll get to see the extra episodes? Bad!

More good than bad, I guess, but I prefer the broadcast airing end on a solid (if not necessarily completely conclusive) note and not leave us hanging for months for a satisfactory ending or stopping point.

With this being arc-based I guess we just need Kako Random to have a solid ending. And of course the novels are ongoing as well, so there wouldn't be a completely conclusive ending anyway.

17 seems like a random number in terms of anime eps huh? But meh. Still beats 12/13 eps anytime considering how much I enjoy this show atm. :)

@jmal

5th volume is SS(same as last for now, 8th). So it's a good thing to finish S1 on 4th volume but 13 eps is just not enough for this.

Well, at least you can think that the story will be told decently instead of them trying to stuff the 4 arcs into 12 episodes like production teams tend to do.

BTW, it looks like the BD volumes will be 7 in total. So if that's the case the web episodes will probably be released regularly similar to Oreimo so that fresh content is coming out while the Blu Rays are being released.

Will Crunchyroll get to do the last arc as well? or with this be website only?

That's another concern. I don't think anything like this has happened with a show CR has simulcasted from the start.

I'm not counting shows with one bonus episode only available on BD; it's just assumed those won't be streamed, though CR got one that last Drrr!! ep somehow (but not Sora no Woto's bonus ep). I mean the Bake/Saki/OreImo situations with multiple episodes airing outside of the regular TV channels. I guess we'll get an idea how it'll play out for CR when Saki's episodes finally get scheduled, which should happen before we hear anything about Kokoroko's. At least it damn well better.

17? So unusual.
Anyway better than 12-13 episodes. That means no filler too.

Kinda logical... since I don't see how the plot of the story can go on for 24-26 episodes.

We're only covering 4 of 8 novels (6 of which I gather are full arcs), so with another 1-2 novels it would be easy to go at least two cour.

Actually it would be easy to do it on what already exists, if we can get 17 episodes out of 4 novels. Even ignoring the side story ones, Nise Random and Yume Random could probably fill in another 7 eps without breaking a sweat.

I'll just be content that I get more than 12 episodes. It will be a pain in the back to wait for the additional ones of course.

To the viewers, it does.

This gives me much more hope for it then it would if it was 12 - 13 episodes. Like everyone said, I just hope we don't have to wait forever for the last episodes to be released. I'm really loving this series, so to have the last episodes be put on-hold for a while would make me (and a lot of fans) pretty upset.

Still, like everyone said, 17 episodes > 12 - 13.
