Split-cour, Split-cour everywhere!

Japan is now in economical crisis isn't it?
Watching good retro anime is like you're following the main plot of the story while watching seasonal anime is like you're watching fillers of the story.

Bungou Stray Dogs is on Tokyo MX at 1:05 am, and Onigiri is on Tokyo MX at 1:00 am. We know what that means for the latter.

For some reasons I'm glad it's not just 1-cour. In the other hand I'm little worried because Bones will be full of work this year. If the 2nd cour of this airs in fall, maybe Mob Psycho will be aired in summer, considering they have showed the first PV of Mob recently.

That aside, the PV looks cool, and the music makes it even better. Liked that OP song !
Look forword to this.
Now let's just hope Bones will keep up their works throughout this year.

Split-cour is the reason why Japan is on Economical Crisis and they're running out of money that fast.

This is why actual 2-cour shows are not common in modern anime.

Hhyypppeee!!!!

Mamoru Miyano will play Mad Character again since Tsukiyama in Tokyo Ghoul.
I know this anime will have more than 1 cour.
I'm sure Bungou Stray Dogs will break BD sales record for Bones later.

Mark My Words..

Split-cour interesting.

I didn't think it would be a split cour at first but the series has promise so looking forward to it for sure now. Bones sure is busy this year.

i like split cours tbh. idk if its just me but even an amazing 2 cour anime gets tiring when u enter the new season. so a split cour to me feels refreshing.

id rather have more split cours than just 1 cour if we are on a decline of 2 cour series.

HeroAca will be broadcasted in Nichigo Slot (MBS, Sunday 5pm), so most likely it will be 2 cours (airing from Spring til Summer).

I think split-cours, or anime itself doesn't have much impact on Japan's economy in general.
But I think it's more economical and efficient to be split-cours. The purpose of anime is to boost the original source sales, and merchandise (in this case Novel, Manga, and other products like figures, etc), so even if the Blu-ray won't sell much, if the manga and novel get more popularity / boost in sales, it's enough for them.
*The original source already very popular in Japan though. Probably we will even get Drama CD for spin-off novel and hopefully the OVA :D

Studio D also have to work on Show By Rock short anime and 2nd season, by the way.

========
I don't know if this news already mentioned before, but the CM for Bungo Stay Dogs spin-off novel, "Bungou Stray Dogs Gaiden : Ayatsuji Yukito VS Kyogoku Natsuhiko", goes on sale in January 30th.



Cast :

Ayatsuji Yukito : Sasai Hiroo
Tsujimura Mizuki : Takahashi Rie
Kyogoku Natsuhiko : Asashina Junpei

If it gets Drama CD or OVA, most likely they will use this cast :D

I guess I'm fine with this, it's better than only getting one cour and then having to just hope it sells well enough to get another season.

Its not that..it is that you rarely get any series that air straight as 2 cour anymore. You have to admit split cour shows are becoming much more popular to produce than straight series.

Also split cour do not really count as a first and second season..it just means it was already planned to run for 2 cour worth of episodes except now..they are taking a break in between production and airing the rest of the same season later.

It means the show has two seasons but with a 3-month break hence the split-cour. The cour is 12 episodes each with the split being the break.

I knew what split cour meant, just wondering if Season 1 had aired yet cause everyone was saying Season 2.

"And you thought Bones won't get any busier?" lol.

Totally expected this to be 1-cour tbh but I'm fine with this.

Well, for some reason, MAL is listing all of the 2nd-cour of a split-cour series as 2nd Season. The 1st-cour will be airing this April while the 2nd-cour will be in October.

I'll remind you that Bones have enough manpower and sub-studios to make 4 series per season.

Based Bones. Was really hoping this would get 2-cours worth of content so split-cour is perfect. PV looks and sounds amazing plus sounds very interesting. Bones cementing their place as my favourite studio recently.

A studio having 4 sub-studios doesn't mean that they can make 4 animes with quality, the normal would be two projects in production + two projects in pre-production where the sub-studio can help each other.
When every sub-studio have a anime the help don't happen, and the quality can be affected.
4 animes per season is probably one looking great, other 2 looking ok/good, and the last one looking bad, this for bones.

Look at bones in spring season of 2014 where the situation is similar, when most of them looked bad, this spring season can be even worse.

Sunrise have 6 SUB-STUDIOS, and they don't make 6 tv size animes per season.

Sounds cool, will definitely watch this. It being a split cour 12 ep is an added bonus, since this hopefully means they won't rush it badly.

Split cour format sucks, straight 2 cour season anyday. Althought it's understandable given in today's industry how much production load a studio gets & there arent enough workers.

as far as I'm aware sunrise had 11 studios, 11th one forming around 2011-12.

Last year bandai made a new sister studio "bandai pictures" sth where some sunrise studios got shifted, so I'm not sure the current count of studios sunrise have.

And yes, 4 sub-studios doesnt mean bones can do 3-4 solidly produced shows at one season.(will take quite an amount of outsourcing for that).

I wont be surprised if 1 bones show gets shafted really hard, they arent really used to this much load. *cough kekkai sensen final episode*
hopefully they pull it off.

they went off the story in S1 (which i was all for since i had read the manga anyway) and then they went back into the plot in S2 which i deemed extremely messy and boring. they should have just kept going off track and went with their own story.

thanx for the info mate. So sunrise still has 10 & bandai's got 4.

(my source was this btw https://vanishingtrooper.wordpress.com/2011/10/08/a-rundown-of-the-studios-at-sunrise/) but obviously a production assistant at sunrise would know more than a fan, lel.

But that's not called butchering, it's called your opinion, and no one cares.
