I've no problem with the Air Order. I've a problem creating "Season" that don't exists in Japan.

The Japanese website is updated, since they even give the blurays releases date, the PVs, and even Claris ED. It shows that it's called Owarimonogatari and not "Owarimonogatari Second Season" like CR and Aniplex USA decided (also Aniplex Japan never called it like that in press or news: http://www.aniplex.co.jp/lineup/etc/mon ... x.html#tab)
Wikipedia JP put it also in Owarimonogatari: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E7%B5%82 ... 9%E8%AA%9E / Moreover, the episodes are in SP1 and SP2.
The BluRays show only the title: 終物語 and not 終物語 2nd Season or whatever.
On broadcast page they are shown on the same page as Owarimonogatari: http://cal.syoboi.jp/tid/3898/time

More sources showing that it's Specials and not Season 2 like Aniplex USA shows:
http://www.monogatari-series.com/news/?article_id=44639 <== Official Website
http://www.monogatari-series.com/news/?article_id=44051 <== Official Website
https://youtu.be/7WdyIcDlK2o <== Official PV (shows Owarimonogatari alone, with the arc names, no Season 2)
https://abema.tv/channels/new-anime/slo ... MH3w68ng7H <== Official Broadcaster, show the Special (SP)
http://www.monogatari-series.com/owarimonogatari/ <== Official Website
https://twitter.com/nisioisin_anime <== Official Twitter shows Owarimonogatari, no season 2, and numerous time SP for Special.

Meanwhile we only have CR and Aniplex USA (aniplex JP show it as Owarimonogatari) calling it Season 2.


But what they make "special/SP" about this is the method of broadcast. We can still turn and twist to for a season with split-cour rules etc. 8-). Maybe ManiacB can chime in since it was probably him who removed the specials :)...

Ohh ya thats the reason. I knew it belonged in specials but I couldn't remember why.

Anyway, it's Special of Owarimonogatari for some people like me, and for others it's a new season.

Woah, thats a lotta sources. But it can't be part of season 4 due to the time lapse in airing.
But basically all Japan's sources point to it being 2 specials tagged to season 4 and all USA sources point to it being an independent season.

And the talk will come back when Zokuowarimonogatari will be released (I hope so) and Aniplex USA will call it: The true final season.

Yeah, depending on how many episodes it ends up as it'll go in either specials or as a separate season. Personally i think it'll make 4 episodes and end up as a special tagged to season 5.

Maybe by that time they will have learnt how to translate puns correctly and don't give us awful subtitles.

Amen to that!

Koi to Uso is misspelled (Not that I can read it)

How it is currently:

恋と噓

How it should be:

恋と嘘

MAL, Syoboi, etc.

Princess Principal 13 should be moved to Specials as it is a recap.

My bad, when the info came out I understood it as they would show new things from the missing cases 1 through 8, but it's just a recap of episodes 1 through 8.

Does anyone know where the "INTERMISSION" in the last episode of Gamers! is sourced from? Crunchyroll has the title as "Gamers and Billing System Talk". I changed it once, but it was changed back to add the INTERMISSION, so I figured I'd get a confirmation here before doing anything.

Title card in episode.
MAL also lists as INTERMISSION (cross) Gamers etc.
Anywhere else omits it (including Crunchyroll).

If you want to absolutely follow Crunchyroll or the title card though you'd also change "Spectator Mode" to "Watching Mode" but then it's not something any gamer will understand. The correct gaming term is spectator mode (Just a google search will show the difference in relevant results). Every other place uses "Watching Mode" despite it not making sense in gamer parlance.

There's also episode 6 with the double title "prank" due to the cliffhanger thing they do. Here the official website lists the last one and Crunchyroll doesn't list any, so I did like syoboi and put both formatted similarly with the prank title in the parenthesis.

Basically I took some liberties depending on these factors:
1. Licensor has the incomplete title.
2. Show (and licensor by extension) uses incorrect terminology.
3. Licensor still has no idea, so both are used.

I'm aware that this can all be argued against. I tried to be as objective/rational as possible though with these opinions.

And on that note, episode 4 was also changed to correspond.

That's completely fine by me. Having looked at the title card too (I didn't notice when watching), I agree with it. I'm more for going with the intent of the creator than the exact title Crunchyroll put up. Appreciate the explanation!
