jmal said: It was also reported on some TV broadcast schedules at 26 quite a while ago, although this really is a very 1-cour looking release. I do have to assume split cour as well. Hmm.
I found some more information that might point to it being split cour. Every other anime airing this season on Crunchy that has an episode count announced also has an ending date... the only one that doesn't is Listen to me Girls.
Misdreavius said: I don't see why this couldn't work as a 2-cour anime, subject matter shouldn't be an indication of length.
I don't think it's so much a matter of "should" or "shouldn't" so much as a question of expectations set by past experience. There is indeed no reason why this "shouldn't" be 2 cour. It's just somewhat uncommon for this kind of show to be more than one cour.
I mean, if I end up liking it, then all the better that it's two cour. No complaints from me. Just saying it wasn't a bet very many people would have put money on if you'd asked before we knew, that's all.
Oh how very surprising. More dvd/db extras. Sigh, I wish we had DB structured like anidb with all specials, extras and other stuff in one entry with the main series. And not cluttered search and list...

They'd have to change a few other things to make that work. I really wouldn't want a show sitting in my Currently Watching for 6-9 months after it finishes while I wait for that final BD bonus episode to come out. Or to be unable to mark it "Complete" if I skip the bonus ep.
I think PapaKiki just ended, with a バイバイだぉ！at the end. IF there's supposedly 26 episodes, maybe there'll be a season 2 with 14 episodes? Iono, I love the novel <3 there's a few more characters in the novel that wasn't introduced in the anime. But will love to see a sequel :D
MelbShaw said: I see ecchi is put as one of the genre for the Pappa anime. Are there going to be loli fanservice or just Reika? :O either way looking forward to it
It's probably just a blind guess. I wouldn't put all that much stock in genres assigned by an anime encyclopedia like MAL, they're a very very blunt instrument with which to measure a show's content (e.g. who shoot straight to the genres as soon as a show is announced and go "romance and comedy MUST BE SHIT" before they know a single substantive thing about the show). Ecchi can mean so many things and covers such a wide spectrum.
I'm sure there will be a fanservicey scene or two. That's probably about it. PapaKiki isn't a really ecchi show by any stretch and a BD special is only going to ratchet that up to a point, I doubt it changes the basic nature of the show.
