im seeing akira today.
While I assume they're scheduling both the manga and anime to end at the same time I'd rather they just didn't make a final season. Studio WIT was an awful studio but it sure is a drunk move to accept a schedule this bad in an industry where bad schedules are the norm. MAPPA really trying to beat WIT in that department lolI really hope this "Final" season is split into multiple parts to make the quality as good as possible, Especially since the manga hasn't quite finished yet. I really don't want another GoT season 8.
I believe it is new news as Crunchyroll have just tweeted about it too
23/01/2021 in Japan (don't know if that is actually new news, first I've heard though).
