sooo any chance for another ova but future that goes into vol 5 or ties up realtionship holes?

I think there would be some chance of it if Yonezawa releases a 6th book and Kadokawa wants to promote it with new animation. But the anime already gave the novels an absolutely enormous sales boost, so I don't know if they'd consider another anime release necessary at this point. They'd probably move 100k of a new novel without more anime. I also don't know if a sixth novel is even planned, as it's been almost three years since the last one. There's also the question of whether KyoAni would be interested in doing more of it when they're pretty busy with animating titles from their novel line.

So I dunno, it's not impossible but I think it's unlikely.

When is the episode Blueray 11.5?
Probably around december?
There's only 2 volumes out, each with 2 eps. Assuming one volume per month, around december sounds about right.

It comes out with the third volume of the manga adaptation, which comes out January 12, 2013.
I stand corrected then :P

Meh, just sounds like a pointless episode. Which is indeed smart that they're streaming it early since by the time they usually release pointless episodes like these, no one cares in the least.


Exactly what I thought...and I was wrong.

It's a surprisingly important episode. Houtarou ends up really depressed at the end episode 11 but episode 12 begins as if nothing happened (with his sister back). 11.5 fills important holes.

I was surprised too. But it came at a price though. (Eye-cancer takes time to heal)

So are they going to sub this immediately or are we going to have to wait till 2013?

Jun 7, 2012 6:45 AM by Hystery

Sounds like a fanservice episode......*thinks about Chitanda*......I'll be watching it.

Of course, the mandatory pool episode in like every high school anime, haha.

May 15, 2012 8:50 PM by Kefkiroth

So, the OVA will take place between the episode 11 and 12, that means we will lose some details between that episodes or it just nothing important.

Whatever I will watch this though

May 14, 2012 10:33 AM by kuruta_tribe

Oh hey, they put the obligatory pool episode in an extra; I don't have to feel bad about not watching it.

Hopefully more shows follow suit, and do similar for the beach and hot spring episodes.
