    The extra episodes not aired on TV was actually decided since the start of the series. It’s really due to Japanese TV station’s regulations that studios are only allowed to book air time slots at multiples of cour (13 episodes plus or minus one depending on negotiations.) And since they can’t fit the novel materials into 13 episodes AND reach a decent cut off point at the same time, Silverlink suck it up and decided to make 17 episodes instead. According to officials there will be a screening event for more information regarding the remaining episodes. News about that will be revealed in a couple days, according to them.

    Sometimes I think, I prefer it this way instead of having an original anime ending which usually ended up as train wreck.

      Oh, I see…that’s very interesting. I suppose they could have extended it to a two-cour and covered more of the light novels, but then they’d have to weigh in loads of other factors as well. I definitely agree that a faithful adaptation will always be better than an original ending, which almost always ruins the show.
