So 2 special episodes will follow up. Should it really be called as sequel for the anime when S2 will also be releasing (I guess?: looking at MAL entries)

At least we will have the specials this year, considering that ambigous "20xx" of the announcement.

Ok, for a moment I thought that the second season would be only 2 episodes.
It's not bad to build up hype, specials are always welcome.

A bit surprised, since-so many people complained to me that "such good animes as Drifters never get a continuation."
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

I was waiting for season 2, and I still hope it will happen. But I think a special is better than nothing for now xD

I think you missed the information here, there isnt a season 2.

So no season 2 huh? I don't really mind as I was a bit disappointed in the story.

You've got to be kidding me
I really hope that they are planning for a continuation after this 'sequel'
Man... what a betrayal.

I read the same news on ANN quite a while ago and the wording was quite different:
Director Kenichi Suzuki said in September that the sequel anime series would start with a release of episodes 13 and 14 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

Also the card at the end of the anime specifically said 2nd Season and I doubt 2 episodes can be considered a new season. I might be completely mistaken but MAL seems to agree with me as they're making a separate entry for the 2 new episodes.

Strike The Blood's season 2 is 8 ovas so they might do they same here.

I doubt that, they specifically said it would be "episodes 13 and 14" which implies it's part of the first season and not a new one. And Strike the Blood had 8 OVAs (which can technically be called 2nd season due to the amount) whereas Drifters is having only 2 new episodes.

For now it's 2 ep and that director quote implies the episodes are part of season 2.

True, that might be the case as well.

So for the time being, there will be no season 2. T_T So that stupid hamster girl can get a sequel, but a cool show can't!
