I know 1st episodes sometimes are an hour long, but this is the first time i've seen the LAST episode be an hour long.

We are either going to have a sequel hook to adapt the biggest arc (considering the overall pacing of this adaptation, they can easily cover up to the spoiler[6th Layer descent] in 10 or so episodes in a second season), or we are getting an anime original ending.

if we get a second season, we gonna run out of material for a long while depending of it being a split cour (less than an year of wait between the airing periods) or a late sequel (late 2018 or 2019/2020).

In either case, the part they are adapting alone is already even better than the already good source material (especially with them taking out part of the creepy pervy side of the manga that pops out here and there in the story (hopefully they'll cut the whole spoiler[Hot springs] part altogether as well, that stuff really turns most of the people off from I could see and experience (reread the whole thing 2 times now).

I can name a few nowadays (a long time ago, my only example would probably be the super infodumping long last episodes of "Key the Metal Idol"), UBW's first season for example had both 1h long first episode and final episode.

Blood Blockade Battlefront also had an extended last episode. Good call for this show.

Some have said the show has dipped in the middle, but particularly with the revelations episode and the one that just came out, my interest has never dwindled. Thank god the Japanese audience is hooked on it too.

Bring on season two!

...next year...don't rush it and ruin it.

Even with the 1 hour episode Im convince that they going to end it on spoiler[Reg killing the Nanamachi's deformed friend and they leave for the next layer]

Probably going to really expand on Nanamachi and her character.

I hope they keep it in just in spite of crybabies like you.

I mean you're pretty much advocating for censorship because of appeal to authority of X people you know who read several tomes of manga just to drop it because the kids took a bath.

Top 5 of the season? Hell, this is in my top 5 of the decade. I pray for more shows like this. This is better than AoT in my view. I sincerely hope they get a second season.

I also want a second season, but perhaps this hour long episode means that there will be some kind of original ending that wraps up the story in a nice way. Whatever the anime producers decided to do, I just hope for the best. And yes, Made in Abyss is the best anime series of this season and potentially the whole year.

This is my 3rd favorite show of the season and I really hope it leaves room for a second season if it decides to go anime original ending. Though generally a 1 hour special would lean towards something more final, which would be sad Sad

Yea its good, but I enjoy other shows more. More so if we include the whole year. It's ranking in my mind will depend on how it ends.

Season 1 of Blood Blockade Battlefront also had a one hour finale that wrapped up loose ends, and that's still getting a second season, so there may be hope for this show yet. At least... that's what I choose to believe. Anime cry

You have to also remember that BBB was a commercial hit in Japan with 17k copies sold per BD/DVD volume. Made in Abyss is projected to do okay disc sales wise, but probably not good enough to warrant a second season. But you never know; I second season of Abyss may have been planned all along.
