Hence, with the season skipping over the summer months in favor of rushing towards Sae and Hiro's graduation, as well as this season dropping the "out of order" episode line-up that was common in the first two seasons (and allowed for SHAFT to finish off the "pre-Nori and Nazuna" stories even after they are officially introduced to the show), it feels as if SHAFT is pretty much skipping over some exciting stories just to rush to an "anime ending" for the series.
Well, SHAFT does seem to have a ton of stuff it's plate in the next couple of years, so you can't really blame them for wanting to give a long running series (in Japanese terms) a proper ending while they still have a chance.
