According to the official twitter, the second season of Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon was announced to be aired from the summer of 2012. The battles against England and Tres Espana will be animated.
In the first season, the first 1,308 pages of the original novel (Vol.1 Part 1 and 2) has been animated. The second volume (Part 1 and 2) is total 2,052 pages long. (The third and the fourth volumes are 2,458 and 2,395 pages long, respectively.)
so they couldn't adapt another harem light novel and instead will make a second season? Well good for you, Japan. My optimistic side is telling me you're running out of shitty harems and may actually start producing actual quality based shows!

this would be nice :)
ok Boku wa it's not perfect but still had it's moments
and about Horizon... so they will make another 12 episodes with 4-5 totally unrelated to events or logic?
as start of this series was an abomination, later it got decent (not good, just decent)
so more of it is kind of good thing :)
While the first 4-5 episodes were admittedly quite confusing to non-novel readers like myself (hence why I didn't warm to the show until ep 6), saying they're unrelated to subsequent events or to some internal story logic is untrue. It was all a very (too?) complex attempt to set the geopolitical stage on which Toori and the rest of the cast is now acting, as they set out to do that thing they want to do (being vague for spoilers and all that). Everything that happened in the opening episodes is both still relevant and still being referenced within the context of the show's "current" events.
But problem is that this stage is not complex. Ok many nations, some politics and whatnot but that's what rather makes it difficult to aprehend is how it is shown, that they jump from scene to scene. Creators have right to do it, of course - and some of viewers, like me can say that this is crapy. It has a nice action thou and funny tactics during warfare, thats I cannot say it's totally bad.
Bit of sidenote, I might be biassed a bit after Simoun :) which also shows complicated world, with weird terminology, not to mention that biological thing... and yet it manages not only to show it but also present characters a bit deeper.

I cant wait for another season as I absolutely love the show, however I do believe that this show has been hit or miss with a lot of the anime community for good reason so while haters can be annoying, Ill let them off just this once :)
Well, Horizon turned out to be a very decent show, I really enjoyed the second half and the chapters of the novel that I've read. So, I'm looking forward to this. I hope they make a 24/26 episodes this time.
I didn't really like the first half of the season but it got much better afterwards. I'm finally starting to like the show so I will gladly welcome a second season. It's still not the best or most profound show around but it's entertaining enough and I feel like it has some potential to get even better.
I had no problemd with the first 4 episodes at all. True, they were confusing and didn't make too much sense but I like this anime a lot so far and I've seen till episode 9 :) I'm looking forward to the 2nd season ^^

I think they've already indicated the second part is a single cour as well, but even if so, it's selling well enough that they could probably stop before finishing the second book (if there's a good stopping point) and get a third going.
I'd rather see Vol.2 splited into two 13 episodes series than rushed in one 13 episodes series. Well, that's only if Vol.2 is as long as I heard it was.
