So as someone who doesn't quite understand how advertising for anime/light novels in Japan works, does this imply that we're not getting another season?

It does seem to say that the 9th novel is the sequel. I think....

What would be animated? If this anime covered 8 or so novels, I cant imagine theyd say another season is coming until at least the same number of [printed] novels come out.

The anime covered light novel 1-8, and #9 is coming out in the near future. So basically it's an advertisement for #9.

However, the web novel, i.e. the original one, is already way ahead, and more importantly, free, with at least twice the material covered in the anime and light novel.

For most people here, the immediate question would be:
But is it TRANSLATED?

"If you want more Re:Zero, guess what? We're definitely NOT making any more. We couldn't even if we wanted to; the anime is all caught up with the novels. So you gotta read those now.

I REPEAT: WE'RE NOT MAKING ANY MORE RE:ZERO. SERIOUSLY. SO DON'T ASK."

Honesty though, I don't see myself reading any Re:Zero in the near future. (I say that even though I own the first volume of the light novel. Razz ) I'm happy with what we got. No season 2? No prob. Smile

A lot of LN anime end on a "read the books!" note but this is the first one to say it outright.

No, but I thought perhaps the immediate need for more re:zero is a severe enough motivation to spend a year to learn Japanese...It's unlikely season 2 will arrive in the next year or two, after all.

They are not making any more Re: Zero now, but whose to say what will happen when more light novels come out. Especially, if this makes lots of money.

I look at this news simply that the new stuff starts with the 9th volume which is coming out now so thoose that cant wait for more of the anime they can read the LN which would be then as a sequel seen, but still there a high possibility for a 2nd season of anime since even the author said he wanted his whole work adapted and pretty much everyone is really happy with how it became popular. So dunno but for me this news dont mean that we wont get more of the anime.

No not at all. This is merely saying that the story still continues and what the anime showed isn't the end, especially not of the 9th volume.

It's very likely that they initially planned to adapt the entirety of volume 9 but throughout the production they had to alter the ending point.

This here is clever usage of this change in order to promote the incomplete adaptation of a volume that will be released soon. The title of the episode which is actually the title of the 5th chapter of the 9th volumes proves the point further that this is a little cleverly thought out advertising strategy.
