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.

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?

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.

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.

Doesn't matter.


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.

Strange episode count. But glad to see. There are plenty of series that needed either more episodes than a single season, or less episodes than 2 seasons. 17 episodes is a great length.
I don't accept random friend requests, but feel free to PM me if you want to talk about something i've posted or talk about some anime/manga that i've seen.

Already heard about this before, but I haven't heard that it's actually reached 8 volume instead of 4. Do the volume count still growing?

Also, 17 >>> 13. I don't get why some people were upset that they did get some more episodes. It's much better than forcing 4 volumes into 13 eps, since the current pace is already pretty fast for drama.
