But why not a full series? The last adaptation was quite successful, even taking into account the absence of "traditional" romance.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

The event was a huge disappointment.

ufotable has new projects in the future but we got this instead. There wasn't a new game that was worth mentioning. (well, there's a new mobile game if you're a fan of those) Not even a port from some of the older games.

Em I am not familiar much with this but this could have been a full series rather than an short (from what I'm getting here). Just saying.

Though I'll keep an eye on it so.

That's true.

Though I guess it makes sense to just make it as an special which is fine. I don't think its a bad thing.
