Tbh, the anime has always been skipping out content anyways. So maybe a 13 episode season can work again, and they don't need to cut out anything.

Volumes 6.5 and 7.5 haven't been adapted yet either iirc. Though chronologically, it would be weird to adapt them for a third season. One of the chapters from 10.5 was adapted though (which was the Zoku OVA).
That's even better. And it's not like the anime wasn't successful. Make it happen, Japan!

I don't think there will be any S3, and 13-14 = 2 volumes is not enough material for a whole new season, they'll prolly gonna make some OVA episodes to conclude the series. That's all.
It's 3 volumes, 12-14. There's also Vol 10.5 which I'm not sure if it has been adapted or not. I'm sure they'd be able to find enough material for a 10 or 11 episode anime.

'Passione' also have tried with Rokka (Anime) based on the 1st vol, such a waste of time and money (for just a promotion) I would say.

Great that FUNA's "average girl" made it barely into the rankings as the defacto cut-off point at #28, managing to stay in the rankings for more than 1 week. Still no news for the anime? It has been announced 9 months ago. It's the first OP MC isekai adaptation with a female protagonist, so I am quite curious to see what kind of reaction that would result in on MAL and other places once it airs.

Awesome Yahari no comedy on top number 1. Best slice of life anime for me so far I love it. I hope Hachiman x Yukino in the end happen

Great to see Goblin slayers up there and Youkoso. Sad to see Overlord not up there

This week looks good with some of my favorite titles like Oregairu. Akashic record, Mahouka, and Konosuba there.

Nov 30, 2018 6:47 PM by Congintive

Not surprised anymore with Oregairu at top. RIP fan translation, where tf I can read V12 now smh. YP just way too long. Nah whatever, Volume 14 hype.

Yui is in the cover of this Vol which means Yukino will be in the cover of the last Vol which means she will win at the end which means the girl who appears in the cover of the first Vol will win YET FUCKING AGAIN GODDAMMIT AGHAGHAGAHGAHGAHGAHAGHAGHAGHAGHGHAHGAHG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



It'll be Totsuka so don't worry, our waifu will win
that would be awesome, but I REALLY doubt it would happen :(

Great to see Oregairu back to 1st place!

Volume 13 seemingly delivered so I’m hoping the last volume will too and consequently leading to a new and final anime adaption news.
Glad to see Rokudenashi up to 2nd place and Mahouka once again there in the top 5, hopefully this prompts a 2nd Season for the respective shows.
