Don't shoot the messenger! Hell, just look at how absurd the idea that there's five episodes left. Maybe it was three or four it would be understandable, if not still almost no chance of happening, but frankly having five episodes left makes less sense than 2. They're going to pack these last two episodes tight, and I don't see any way they include the final special part.

I'm trying to remember if shows I watched still continued for a week or two after new seasons have already started and I"m pretty sure they have, but I can't really think of one off the top of my head


They haven't. Maybe there was a delay in the subs themselves, sure.

Not that I watch much anime but I feel like stuff from prior seasons rolls over all the time so what LtM is saying here is really confusing to me.


Not the case!

Really, nothing would make me happier than being wrong, but I just don't see a world where I am in the current seasonal climate. If it WAS going to go past June, THAT would be a news story, not it ending at 36, while technically filling 39 slots with 3 ".5" episodes. That's not news, because that's what would just be assumed to be the case by people in the know.

I will gladly eat s*** about being wrong forever if that's the case. I want to be.

well while you all ruminate over the uncertainty of the final episode count I'm going to ruminate waiting for chapter 87 of JoJolion to pop up. It feels like it's taking 89 YEARS

(kind of spoilers?)

Here's a leaked episode list from a year ago with 39 episodes that at the time was listed as probably fake but has so far kept up perfectly albeit very poorly translated.

Furthermore, 39 is the number used for the upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray box set, and those definitely don't include recaps in the number if they're even included at all. For instance, Attack on Titan advertises its S1 box set as 25 episodes even though it had a 13.5 recap episode when it aired.

Also literally even the 9 episode Phantom Blood couldn't confine it's final boss to a single episode if you count the ship.

Again, I would love to be wrong.

At this time I would be more willing to believe its 39 and the last 3 will be released as an OVA special than I would that it just keeps going into the summer season, though.

Actually it is a little off now that I look a little deeper. Baby Face/Head and White Album/Ice didn't get 2 eps each, they got 1 episode named after them each and "Head to Venice" between them, so everything past it on that list is happening 1 week earlier than indicated. So something coming up has to be wrong.

If that's the case then 3 of those episodes would just have to be converged to 2, assuming the very real opportunity of them cutting the last bit.

Chapter count aside, the actual content remaining excluding that could absolutely work in 2 episodes.

Given what little I do know about what's coming up, they would have to utterly and hilariously curbstomp Silver Chariot Requiem to even begin to make it work in 2 episodes.
