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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
