Yup, this was bound to happen. After all, in the event last year they announced a movie ;)

My love for this series has evaporated but this is alright.

Extra game isn't all that special. I actually don't like it aside from the fact that I get to see Aomine and Kise again, but I expect amazing visuals.
KnB+ good visuals/animation = great entertainment for me.

Nice, very nice. But I'll be sad when it ends.

Nice to see it's officially confirmed. Since the start of the Extra Game manga, I knew they won't leave it without an anime adaptation. Will be hard to say goodbye to Kurobasu after this.

Will watch for completion's sake.
Not particularly looking forward to this but I'm sure it'll be decent fun and well animated.
Good for the fans

Oh cool, I was planning on reading Extra Game at some point, but guess I'll watch the movie instead.
