It seems rare to have a second season announced even before the first one is aired, more so in anime than anything else. I think I'll definitely check this out to see why their putting so much into it.

But both Fate and Rinne were set from start as two cour series.
In case of Horizon it was based on sell results.

TWGOK second season announcement was leaked IIRC.
We've been getting a lot of split cour anime lately. I don't really mind, if I didn't like the first season I could just skip the second one. Won't have to sit through 24 episodes then.

Yes. It's a new trend.

Fate/Zero
Rinne no Lagrange
Kimi to Boku
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon

and now this.

Nope. Horizon-2 was confirmed later but rumors about 2-cour started much earlier.

Now if only Apollon and Zetman get 2-cour adaptations too, it'd be glorious.

Nah, Horizon was split cour long before the first volume came out.

Split cour shows end up costing a lot more than consecutive-cour shows, which is one downside. Instead of buying ~8-9 discs like most two cour shows, it ends up being 6-7 for each cour meaning 12 (Rinne, KimiBoku) to 14 (Horizon). Fate is in boxsets so it's hard to compare.

As far as storytelling goes, I don't mind it so long as they handle the end of the first cour well. Horizon did, but I wasn't fond of Fate's cliffhanger. I hope Rinne comes up with something good.

Splitting a season helps keep a high level of quality when it comes to production values. I can understand why studios are taking this approach a lot more now. But for the fans it can be a very painful expererience.
