That's good to hear. I'm not sure if that will give enough incentive for the anime to have enough seasons or cours to cover the rest of the managa, now that it's finished, but it will still have been a successful series.

third fiscal quarter (April-December)

I'm confused. How is this, 9 months, a "quarter"?

Edit: I think this was misread. The fiscal year starts in April, so when it says (4-12) it's actually adding all 3 quarters together. So it seems like "TBS saw a 16% uptick in its animation business sales in its third fiscal quarter (April-December) compared to the same quarter last year. " is saying that the first three quarters were up 16%, rather than just the third quarter. Volumes 2-5 were releasing in this time period so that makes sense.

Ironically, the machine translation of this from Google makes a lot more sense "On February 6, TBS announced its financial results for the third quarter of the fiscal year ending March 2020 (April to December). The company's anime business sales were found to be 652 million yen, up 16% year-on-year.". When written like this, it definitely seems to imply they just got the third quarter results and added them to the fiscal year numbers to get that 652 million yen rather than 652 million yen in the third quarter alone.
