This is such a shitty way of doing things. 45 minutes of the series one year, and 45 the next? Where is the logic in that? Sunrise should finish ALL the episodes and release one every month. That way the fans would have the previous episode in fresh memory before heading in to the next.
So it won't be subbed untill Autumn 2013, that kinda sucks.
If you're curious how well the anime of the current cour are doing, you should check my site(Also includes release dates for upcoming OVAs/Movies & upcoming tv shows). My Site :link / MAL news club :link My Twitter :link My Last.fm :link

Yeah I already can't really remember what happened in the last one and I hate re-watching shows. I always feel the time spent re-watching something could be spent watching something new.
Why do I have a feeling this news is related to Gundam The Origin finally going into production and that new Valverave show coming out in Spring. The way I see it I have little problem waiting for more of this since Spring is already shaping up pretty strong and I don't see it adding much of a new dimension to it with 3 other mecha type shows coming out that season alone. Probably actually smarter to delay it a bit if it's on the earlier side of summer like June.
The thing is, making this into a TV series would bring its own set of problems.
Not to mention they probably wouldn't have the fight sequences look as good with a TV budget.
Personally, I enjoyed the first episode and don't really mind delays. That's not optimal, but I'd rather they focus on getting things right and not rush just to please impatient fans. As long as the final result is worthwhile, I can accept this.
That's not really a question of laziness but, more likely, one of available resources and budget issues.
In defend of Surise here, this is their schedule that I got from another forum:
Studio 1 --> Gundam Unicorn
Studio 2 --> Boned
Studio 3 --> Gundam AGE
Studio 4 --> Code Geass
Studio 5 --> Kaiketsu Zorori movie, Gintama
Studio 6 --> Tiger & Bunny movie
Studio 7 --> Assisting Gundam AGE (?)
Studio 8 --> Accel World, Horizon, Neragaku, Love Live!
Studio 9 --> Battle Spirits, Binbougami
Studio 10 --> Phi Brain
Studio 11 --> Natsuiro, Aikatsu
So they have their plate very full. Sunrise is notorious with keeping everything on schedule, but studio 4 obviously dropped the ball on this. On the bright side, I have to give props to studio 8 since they are able to produce 4 series at once! That was impressive.
I completely forgot about this. I haven't watched the first one yet, but the average opinion of it seems to be mediocre. I might as well just wait for them all to be released and watch them all at once - I'm only mildly interested in this.
So they are drawing at a pace ot 7.4 second every day. Round it to 8 or 9 if you take weekends away. That sounds very slow for a studio that's supposed to work doing that. Anyway I'll just wait, what else can we do?

With that many projects they are doing at the same time (my post earlier) You will be amaze at how much they've able to accomplished
Well, this is a really bad flop on their part. After a not-so-memorable (although I personally liked it) first episode, they're coming out with the second a whole year later. That's one way to screw your franchise and fans. Code Geass is already somewhat tempered by R2 in my opinion. They kind of needed to put more into this series. Now here's hoping at least the second episode will be good when it does come out.
