It should be noted that on a popular commentary forum dedicated to the franchise, fans assume that the production has already planned a second season, as the pace of the first episode would mean that they did not plan on completing the original cover history of visual novels in these twelve episodes. «No spoilers so I can say that for all of the information available, the anime apparently takes its time to properly go through the history of Alternative. This is by no means the kind of pace you'd expect from a series that supposedly covers the entire game in just twelve episodes. After hearing the news about the event, I'm pretty sure that the anime will end in the middle of the story, and then it will probably end a second season at some point.», Writes the assessment in question, whereby it should be noted that these are only assumptions.
