So this was that big announcement.....it's not a second season but it's better than nothing I guess.

For some reason, the way the title of this news article is worded makes this sound like it'll be a movie version of the TV series, but I'm assuming it'll be a continuation of where the TV series left off......I'm pretty sure I'm understanding this correctly.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

As I heard, vol. 8 of the LN is a good choice for a movie but more chances it will be anime-original.

So it's most likely will be volume 8 adaptation? Otherwise it'll be recap or filler.

Tweaked the wording a bit. The content of the adaptation has not been announced.

It would be impossible since the first season only adapted six volumes (volume 1 to volume 7, minus volume 5). So most likely it will adapt volume 8 (reminiscent arc), it's easier that way than adapting visitor arc.

Oh my!!

Kinda expecting Season 2, but a movie adaptation is not a bad news.

Surely they will adapt the Reminiscence Arc for the movie? Not sure a movie is enough to cover volume 9-11.
And please don't let it be a recap movie.... no, please don't...

Good news. I prefer 2nd season, but a movie is still better than noting !!

I hope the movie is sequel, not a recap movie

Would be good to use this to cover volume 8.

Though it's most likely going to be some anime-original stuff or a recap.

You forgot that To Aru Majutsu no Index also gets a Movie Three years ago.
Maybe Strike The Blood or Hataraku Maou-sama! next..

This still does not break the trend of Madhouse no producing a S2..but considering that more anime is till coming of a title they made...leaves me with a little more hope that some of there other high seller titles might get more anime such as a Movie like NGNL, Overlord, OPM, My Love Story, etc... nothing wrong with hoping,

As for fans of this series...congratz it managed to beat the odds and has more anime upcoming.

ONII-SAMA GRACES THEATRES

You know, when I said I want movies by madhouse again I DID NOT MEAN A MAHOUKA MOVIE

hopefully this isnt Madhouse. Go to a1 pictures, aniplex.
Imagine a berserk anime by Yoshiaki kawajiri at Madhouse.

Now take a look at Berserk (2016).

I am glad i learning something from square enix
Never trust BIG publisher when make announcement
Always expect the best and prepare for the worst
I wonder what kind reaction from casual anime fans when some of them expected mahouka season 2 rather than a movie

PLEASE BE EXCITED!!!

My bet for Madhouse project this year :
- Clockwork Planet anime in Summer
- Youjo Senki anime in Summer/Fall
- Probably Tenkyou no Alderamin anime adaptation (still mixed feeling about this)

My own feeling that either it's gonna be a short movie, it's gonna be extra content, if it adapts Vol 8, or they're simply going to do something else. I really can't tell though.

Not what I was expecting but I am just happy with more animated content for this series. Kinda hoping it's movie original with Tsutomu Satou writing the story like Oda has done with those godlike One Piece films.
