While Crunchyroll has licensed the series they're not actually on the production committee and don't have a say in whether it gets a third season.
Oh really. For some reason I thought they did directly fund production of some shows.

They have started their own studio so they are certainly getting more involved in that sort of thing.

They do directly fund some series as part of the production committee such as Laid-Back Camp, A Place Further than the Universe, The Rising of the Shield Hero as well as any show under the Crunchyroll Originals brand.

Is konosuba not one of those? I thought it was.

Welp prospects for a season 3 suddenly took a nose dive if the director moved on to greener pastures.

I'm not really interested in picking up light novels, the only Anime to get me that far was Made in Abyss.

Thousand Master
Devil Survivor 2
Episodes 1 - 13 (over the last couple days)

Interesting series with some nice fight scenes.

Next up will probably be some older titles as I've resorted my backlog to bring forward some older releases (with the newer ones going to the back of the pile)

Ep 1 - There it is, Majors mandatory leap from a building cloaking as she falls!
Ep 2 - Paranoid delusion.
Ep 3 - Heist!
Ep 4 & 5 continues the Individual Eleven storyline.

Despite a couple of questionable episodes this is a fun series with big Macross energy. Love how extra Kawamori's shows are.

It seems most of the episodes, even those labelled as separate from the overall plot, have relevance to the overall plot making it a lot harder to keep track of it all. The OVA obviously had to cut a load out and made a lot more sense. I found it the other way around with season 1/Laughing Man, the extra bits cut from the show made the overall plot clearer in the series than in the OVA.

Shirobako ep16-17

I don't know what Japanese employment laws are like, but I have a tough time understanding why Hiroaki still has a job at this stage. He doesn't turn up for meetings and his attitude stinks - short of serious nepotism, I feel like he'd have been out on his ass long ago.

That aside, it also caught my attention that the original Japanese for 'Girlmada', in the translated title of the series Musani is producing, sounds like 'Shoujo Tai', also the name of an '80s Jpop group. Just made me wonder if it would literally translate as something like "Girls' Army".

Yeah, I remember that being quite a noticeable change compared to the first series - it made me wonder if they had been criticised for making the self-contained episodes too disparate from the main thrust of the show.
