This was totally meant to be a 2 cour series but probably because of just how awful it did with the BD's they cut it down to this. Of course im pulling that out of my ass but still if thats the case this will be a huge trainwreck.


I'm pretty sure you are right.

Valvrave sold more than BC and got 12 additional episodes intead of 2 special ones.

There is the same kind of situation where a series gets movie instead of a 2nd season of 12 or more. 90 min being the common duration of movie, it costs far less than 12-24 x 20 min.


And Valvrave still got screwed... it's sooo obvious Valvrave's team was expecting a 3rd season, but man did they get the rug pulled out from under them...

Two episodes only? Seems like this is an 18-wheeler headed straight off the cliff, or a train about to be derailed. Call it what you will, hopefully it isn't rushed, but how much can you do it 2 episodes, right? :(

Maybe they will be a 60-min episodes?

Okay, common. That show getting a sequel is already a small surprise, even with that cliffhanger ending. But if it does get a sequel, at least make it longer.

The show is already garbage, so...

They shouldn't even bother if its only going to be 2 episodes to conclude. It's going to be some rushed garbage.

Hopefully it's longer than the 20-25 minutes regular episode.

I'm kind of upset with this news, 2 episodes? serious?? like wow, this is one of the anime i have been waiting for to come out. How are they going to finish this in 2 episode its going to look so rushed. I guess the blu-ray sales had a impact budget.

A second season would be boring for me ... so glad it's only a special.
