According to the official twitter, Fuji TV's timeslot noitaminA will soon run for a whole hour, showing two series per season instead of the previous single one.

This renewal of the timeslot coincides with the recent announcements of numerous noitaminA series - Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei, the live-action version of Moyashimon, Saraiya Goyou, and Shiki which has just been confirmed as a noitaminA series.

Yamamoto Koji, the chief editor of noitaminA, disclosed in his twitter that Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei and Saraiya Goyou will be aired together from this April.

A lot of interesting anime run during this timeslot, so this can only be good news.

Looking forward to Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei..
noitaminA's slot was solely created for airing 'original' shows, right?
(ex. Soranowoto?)

Err. No.

A lot of the noitaminA anime are adaptations of manga, novels etc., including the first one to air in the timeslot. (Honey & Clover)

NoitaminA was created to show anime that are different to the types of anime your typical Otaku would watch.

Ah, okay. I remembered there was something special about NoitaminA, thanks for clearing it up.

Japanese major tv timeslots are extremely expensive and hard to get right? This is some pretty good news.

Nah, that's the Anime no Chikara timeslot, which is where Sora no Woto is airing.

Otherwise, YEESSS!!! This is epic news. This timeslot keeps producing quality and this will only mean more great Noitamina anime

Well, latest noitaminA shows (Higashi no Eden, Tokyo Magnitude, Trapeze) didn't impress me as much as older shows aired in this timeslot (Honey & Clover, Hataraki Man, first season of Nodame Cantabile etc). I have some hopes for Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei though, not much for Saraiya Goyou.

Actually, they've been doing pretty bad these days. Kuuchuu Buranko and Nodame Cantabile Finale have been getting the worst ratings since the timeslot's creation... hence the decision of a renewal, I'd guess.

Now I want to find out whether the new 30 minutes will be added before or after the current slot. This should show how much faith Fuji TV still places in anime & the timeslot.

It's the "Animechikara" block on TV Tokyo that's specifically created for anime original stories. So ra no o to is the first show in that block.

Fantastic news! I like a good amount of noitaminA shows so this is great to hear. I hope someone subs the LA Moyasimon; I really want to see it.

Now we'll get two potentially awesome series a season instead of just one? That's pretty great to hear. Hopefully Toei continues to contribute to it and the extra slot space gives some more non-mainstream directors a chance to shine.

Sweet. Twice as much noitaminA anime every season. I approve. The new decade does seem to be bringing some positive change after all.

DVD sales have been really inconsistant and/or bad since the inception of the timeslot. I applaud the creative efforts that go into the shows that air on Noitamina, but their attempts at diversifying the anime consumer market doesn't seem to be working. Yes, lots of people are watching the timeslot that probably don't usually watch anime -- as evident by Nodame Cantabile making the top 10 ranking several times -- but they aren't buying it up like the usual otaku market...

/tangent

Back to the actual topic at hand, the news of more Noitamina shows per season has me dancing around my room in joy. Some of my favourite shows have aired there, and the timeslot has a fairly consistant above-average quality of shows to it. More often than not, Noitamina is the highlight of the season.

Sounds pretty sweet. More relative quality each season then.
