At the "ReLIFE Jikken Houkoku-kai (ReLIFE Experiment Progress Report)" special event on Sunday, it was announced that the TV anime will receive a Kanketsu-hen (final arc). With a total of four episodes, the Kanketsu-hen will be included in Blu-ray and DVD, which will be released in March 2018. Youji Ikuta, vocalist of the opening theme band PENGUIN RESEARCH and seiyuu, appeared in the event as a "secret guest" and announced that he will join the cast.

ReLIFE is a web manga series by Sou Yayoi that began its serialization via comico in October 2013. The series currently has seven physical compiled volumes in print, with the latest published in February 2017. The 13-episode anime adaptation, available on the comico app prior to the TV broadcast, aired in Summer 2016. A live-action movie also just premiered recently on April 15, 2017.

How are they going to end the anime when the manga is still going and we have all those episodes not adapted yet? Curious to see where this'll end up going...

Even though it's just 4 episodes, I'm glad it will have some sort of ending/conclusion!

Only four episodes? The manga is still ongoing, so I guess it will be an original anime ending. Hopefully, they manage to make a decent conclusion to the anime

I remember this arc on the manga (based on the Pv). Sad to say but it's not as good as the part that preceded , less funny moments and more draged drama.

FUCK YES!! MY BODY IS RIDDY!!

Aren't they just talking about final arc of the season? As in there is a possibility of more if the manga isin't ending.

Kinda feels like a "oh my god there will be no more ReLIFE, gotta buy all the stuff" hype/sales trick.

I at least hope there will be more, really enjoyed the series.

While I'm happy that they will do an ending I'm still sad to hear that they won't adapt the rest. Guess I'll just have to read it on my own.

That's great. Because I had the feeling like the anime was lacking an episode or two.

I'm excited for the final arc! I wonder what will happen to their 'life' project.

Both good and bad news but this could've been worse aka not ever happening,so it's nice to see this have a end rushed or not

but this series popular enough to get upcoming live action... we sure don't know how many impact anime has, but considering get some extra and even new adaptation, it should be good...

nanbaka and momokuri sales even lower, they are get their own addition nevertheless (nanbaka gor 2nd season, when momokuri got tv airings... both of them first aired in comico aps first, nanabaka second season only available in streaming)
it is somehow popular (which is the reason why it even get an anime and live action adaptation) but in terms of anime sales, it has low sales and as i quote from Elf Yamada from Eromanga-Sensei,"Sales are justice!".

TLDR: Money is what makes this (every) industry go around so even a series is considered "popular" no one will be interested to fund another project for a series if it has low sales


yes, my point is also money, but money not only come form BD/DVD sales... it's not absolute and solely money source... also considering their main market is streaming...

Physical sales is still an important part since it is still the basis whether an anime actually brought profit to the production committee behind it.Sales are the key on whether an anime will get a 2nd season since low sales=no season 2.Sadly,japanese people has different taste compared to people around the globe and thus, the series is has low sales.

Well animes are made as some sort of a commercial for the original source so i definitely think it increased the page views for it and for comico somehow

i don't think physical sales is that important, since this series was mainly ONA (it's streamed through comico aps first than aired on TV) and the manga also web toon... page viewer is much more important i think...

Ikr,like for example *Ouran Highschool Host Club and Umineko no Naku Koro Ni* among many others

I was actually suprised since this series has low sales in Japan so the reason why they doing is (probably) to increase the sales of BDs and DVDs
