Oh well.....at least we still have the OVAs.

Perhaps season 2 could be possible in the future? I guess only time will tell.

The article made it pretty clear that's not happening. Season 2 couldn't happen for whatever reason, so they settled for a novel instead.

It'd be nice if Viz (or anyone, really) would pick up the novel. It would suck to not have the finale legally available in English.

@BrainBlow

You really don't like this series do you?

There was no need for that picture though. You literally JUST stated your pleasure with the lack of a 2nd anime season minute ago. There was no need to do it again and continue rubbing it in peoples faces.

Sorry, I misread your comment as saying something slightly different. Haven't slept tonight, silly me.

But yes, I am indeed quite happy with this.
I still don't get how they thought having a good writer writing the first episode and then a bunch of random jocks writing most of the rest was a good idea.

Well that's a shame, I enjoyed the first season. Thought it was a fun and unique story. But alas, that's the nature of the beast.

When I saw the headline, found it strange. Reading the article, 2nd season wasn't scrapped for a novel. Laughing

You read this part, right?

続編小説については、元々TVシリーズ第2期の予定でシナリオを作っていたものが、諸般の事情で残念ながら制作が困難になってしまったこと、しかしその想いを小説という形で成就されたことなどが語られた。
