It does seem like they're pushing it a little faster than I think they need to. It's only about half the time between Nise and this as between Bake and Nise, and Kizu should have been given a date long ago.
I initially figured we might see a few one-cour seasons (3?) to cover remaining material, spread over a few years. Or Kizu very soon, with BDs hitting around the time a fall season show starts. Perhaps they feel there's a limited window on the franchise to attain maximum sales? But a lower average sales number * 3 seasons and with less episodes per disc if two cour is probably more money than one two-cour series. Well, I guess it's hard to know. At least this way they knock it all out at once, and don't risk interest really trailing off over a couple years, I dunno. Still seems a season or two faster than I would expect.
