I'm wishing for a Season 3 as well. The music is great, the story is good, but the Character development is amazing for having so many. It's like watching Suikoden as an anime. Totally worth it.

You know, that isn't really a guarantee that there will be another season. You gotta take in other factors into account.
And here's the thing: we'll have to wait at least 3 years before we get a season 3, if we DO get one. Sure, both seasons sold fantastically and there is still A LOT of material they can use for S3 (and beyond), but this series took like 2 years to be made as well as an immense amount of effort from animators that aren't paid very well. Sunrise might just decide S3 is not worth it.
That said I'd friggin' love if they made more. Who knows, we'll just have to be (very) patient on this one.

No worries, the 2nd season sold an average of 20K+ discs, only a slight drop from the sales of the 1st season. That is the type of numbers and in particular the consistency that producers love to see.

My guess is that the first two seasons had been green lighted together which is why they were released so close together. The producers probably wanted to see what the success was before green-lighting a third season. With these sales number though unless there is some weird political reason, there will definitely be a 3 and maybe even a 4th season.

What will happen is that the producers will probably once again solicit production companies, who will in turn bring together the talent. This takes some time to coordinate, so definitely probably a 2014 release (unless they already had the framework for a 3rd season in place.)

I found it funny how the show ended both the first season and the second. The first season ended with a definite feeling of we will be back soon. The second season, recommending a rest before the next adventure showed that it will be a bit of a longer wait here.

Your not thinking like a Japanese. "It did great, awesome. Now lets make another hit rather than chance another season not working". From what I've seen horizon may be popular, but its not mainstream like bleach or one piece, making it more of a gamble. Besides, the trends may have changed while it was being aired. Seems anime gets released in waves of the same genre. I see this either being announced next season to be produced or it taking 5-8 years to come out.


Just because something isn't as mainstream as Bleach or One Piece that doesn't mean it's a gamble. There are tons upon tons of anime that don't get Bleach or One Piece numbers that end up getting renewed for more seasons. It's incredibly rare to get sales that ridiculously high. If Japanese actually did it like that, we'd hardly ever get extra seasons because it would be setting the bar way too high.

If it sales well enough, then it's enough to warrant another season.

Also 5-8 years? That's insane. How many shows do you see have a sequel air 5 years later?

nvm forgot to look first, also if they can make the 3rd season as great as seasons 1 and 2 it will not be a risk

They really need to work on the anime fast because the author writes one arc every year and one season of the anime covers one arc. This year the novels have reached the 6th arc and most likely the 7th arc is next year. Even if there's gonna be a third season next year, by that time the anime would be 4 arcs or 4 years behind.

The main problem is how many arcs will this series have and is the studio willing to produce so many seasons when one season only covers one arc?

there is a simple solution to that problem and it is to make the seasons longer so they cover more than one arc per season that way they could eventually catch up and we wouldn't have to wait so long for more

i don't really know much about this things. Just finished watching season 2. From a business standpoint however, i'd be concerned about new viewers not understanding crap (ie: prerequisite watching both seasons to understand the complex story, hence limiting your audience) if you grab the amount of people that bought season 2 and cut out a % of people that wouldn't buy S3 for whatever reason out of it...it might not be worth the trouble (ie: other investments are more profitable).

Again, i'm just looking at it in my very noobish point of view. Hope it does come out.

I don't think new viewers will watch the third season, if they are interested they will obtain the other 2 seasons somehow and watch them to catch up before the third season.

Season 2 final blu ray average was only 1.2k below Season 1 final blu ray average in terms of sales.

there will probably never be a season 3. Because adapting the next arc in one court would mean stacking even more pages adapted by episode.
The season 1 had a pretty standard (in the anime industry) ratio for "rushed LN adaptation" with a little over 100 pages/episode. You see that kind of number quite a lot in anime, nothing surprising here. However, depending of the style of the author and the subject, 100 pages/episode can still be OK, or it can let you feel like it's rushed, or it can be completely rushed. Good adaptation usually have between 60 and 80/episode btw.

Being a huge info dump, Horizon is in the last category. The anime gave you like 1/4 of the necessary information in the first series. And this isn't contestable, as you just need to read each episode's thread on this board to see that lots of people had to rely on wikia/wiki/other for extra informations in order to know what was going on. You never see that on other adaptation. This show how much of a rush it was. And I think that considering how much info was needed, they actually did a pretty good job on the episode 1 to 3 trying to cover as much as possible.

So while 100 pages/episodes is quite common nowadays for a LN adaptation, it was a freaking bad ratio for Horizon. Then what about the second season?
It simply breaks by a lot the record of highest page/episode ratio in the anime industry, with a ridiculous 155 pages/episode. That's no longer compression. I don't think there's a single anime with a ratio> 130/episode and they did a 150+ on a anime that felt already incredibly rushed with just a 100/episode ratio.
The result is that we lost most of what made the story.

So what about the third arc then? It's even longer than the second one. With one court, it would require to break the record again and go as high as 190pages/episode. Ridiculous number.
That, or to take a risk economically by adapting a single arc over two court.

Never of those two things are going to happen. I sure don't want to see the first one as it would just be a complete crap with that kind of ratio; and the second one would be nice but they'll never do that anyway.

Hence no third season.

It's been confirmed, according to someone a few posts back. While I don't mean to disrespect you, your belief that it would never happen is effectively null and void unless the studio says otherwise.

Yeah, just like there has been a thousand of "confirmations" of a third season of spice and wolf and a new season of haruhi, yet we never saw anything. I'm sorry, but it has NOT been confirmed officially so no, it's not confirmed.

It's a risk because a third season would not be guaranteed to have the same success as the previous two. Especially since it's a really complex verse, the more you wait before creating a new season, the more people will forget about what happened in those 3500 previous pages. And since even with two court they would already be hard pressed to finish the adaptation with that number of episodes, and considering how much stuff happened before, they won't have the leisure to remind people about what happened in the two previous seasons.
We're not talking about a shakugan no shana here. the complexity is on a whole other level.

It's been more than one year since the second season aired, and still no official announcement for a third season. That pretty much settles it. And the more time passes, the more unrealistic the idea of a third season becomes.
Besides, in the end of the first series, they adapted partially the prologue of the second arc. But in the end of the second series, what did they do? Instead, they simply have shown quick images about several characters appearing in the next arc, that shouldn't have been shown right now. This looks a lot like what was done in the end of the c^3 series if you ask me. They don't really have any plan to adapt the next season so they just show a little other characters for the fans.

And besides, if they didn't do two court to adapt the second arc even though doing one court lead to the most compressed LN adaptation in history, I don't see how they would risk it for a third season. Doesn't sound logical to me.

So explaining why this will not get a third season is being biased and stupid, and saying that there will be one despite everything showing that there won't be any is being intelligent and objective? Thank you for your wonderful and objective comment. Also, how does this lead to liking or not liking a series, and what kind of point are you making with that in this discussion. Please explain, I do not get it.

ss4chris said:

And they won't do it because it would take too many episodes so it would be too much of an investment. We're talking about money indeed in the end. Sales are important but how much needs to be invested for the next season is crucial as well.
Bottom line is, I know how much the content was cut in the first and second season, and you probably don't. And I have under my nose how big is the next arc, whereas you probably don't.

Also, sales of the dvd/BR AREN'T the only thing that matter. If it was, there would be a new season of Haruhi. but there are other factors in play. You cannot just brush off every single other factor by saying "it sold fairly well".

So couldn't they just extend it to a 24-26 episode season 3? Or would that require more content? Also depending on how well sales go, although iv'e heard they have been well.

Sales have been good. A 24-26 episodes would lead to a rushed adaptation that would probably still require the customer to read wikia or other explanations about what is happening; but it was already like that in the first series so that would not be a real problem; it sold well despite this.

I would certainly like to see "loli grandma" (Yoshitsune) animated as she's awesome, and see fighting some of the monsters like Ujinao (coolest character design in Horizon imo) and Turenne (her strength is ridiculous, you can't even compare her to Mitotsudaira, the difference is just too great), as well as the satomi and sanada etc. who all appears during the third arc but... Well, it won't happen.

Still the series turned out pretty decent, did it not?
I too know how big the volumes are and that one of them would easily fill a 50 episode anime to the brink. And I have no doubt that Kawakami himself knows that, too. Cutting elements was inevitable, as it is with most extensive adaptions but horizon especially. That was why he put so much time and effort in the project, I dare to say more than other authors whose work gets adapted, to see it turn out the best it can with the limits given to the team.

Of course the last scene of S2 and the good sales are not a promise for a third season. It may happen next year, in a few years or it may not happen at all. Nothings set in stone and in the end only the studio that wants to produce it will know for sure, if they get the fundings or not and of course Kawakami.

There were easily enough sales from both seasons to warrant it. If there is a third season in the making, expect it to be 26 episodes, or an average 13 episoder.

In the end, we can only hope!

^ Well that's why I made the comparison with a new season of spice and wold or haruhi earlier.
Although I have to admit that the fake is impressive.

Putting aside the fact of being under a rock or not, that image is now more than 6 months old. Don't you think that since then it would have generated things like a news on MAL or ANN for example, an official site, and that more info like the studios and main staff would have been leaked? The fact that no one reacted nor gave news for 7 months after that "image" alone should tell you that this was a fake.

Considering how complicated the verse is, doing a two court third season (which would itself require people to look at wikia stuff to understand episodes even if they remember correctly the seasons 1&2) several years after everyone forgot about the two other seasons' details would be far too much of an economical gamble.

Only that the people that want to know every little detail are a very low percentage. I am just before the final ep in S1 and I wont be reading any wiki at all, cause I dont need it. I got the jinx of the series I dont need to know every little nitty gritty detail as long as I am entertained. Its probably the same as Bioschock Infinite people said that it was very complex, but honestly the essence and core of it was relatively easy to get and only the quirky details where hard to notice. And its the same with Horizon at least so far inot s1. Its core story is relatively easy to understand and most people dont need more than that.

You're basically saying that someone shutting off his/her brain while watching an anime doesn't need any explanation while he/she's watching it. If you think about what's happening then you'll need lots of explanation that you won't find in the anime in order to get WHY this is happening like this. So the only way to not find yourself with a lot of unanswered questions and an impression that the characters don't do logical decision/and so on, you always have the choice indeed to 'not think about it".

Outside of the fact that it's kind of a "thanks captain obvious" here to say that "if I don't want to understand anything else than the basic plot and don't want to think about how the plot elements are linked, I don't need any supplementary explanation" ( If I don't want to eat chocolate, I won't need a chocolate bar either I think)....

So outside of this then... I'll say Watching a show with complex scenario, complex negotiations, intricate character settings, wel thought strategies, and most importantly the most impressive world building ever, etc etc with a mindset of "I don't need to understand anything else than the basic scenario" sounds kind of a complete waste. When you feel like this, go watch Highschool DxD, not Horizon. In the end, everyone does whatever he wants; but that just seems like a complete waste. It's not about " quirky details hard to notice", half of the necessary content is missing.

Comparing a original game setting to a series of book of the size and complexity of Horizon shows how much you aren't grasping the degree of awesomeness of Horizon's world building. I've played a lot of RPG, read a ton of books, this is in a completely different league. The fact that you think it's okay to watch such a rare treasure like you're watching any generic ecchi/action anime is up to you. Just don't think everyone will follow your opinion though.

And right back to you. Dont think that everyone will watch this with the utmost attention and will want to know every little detail like you. And we where talking about getting a 3rd season. The only thing that matters in that regards is sales. And If a big chunk of the customers think that they dont need to know every little single detail, they wont have a problem with having alot of info stuffed in very little time, and the studio wont have a problem with producing what the costumers want.

What you still don't realize is that when we're talking about half the content missing, we aren't talking about 'little details". We're taking about explaining what you saw so that it actually HAVE sense.

And yes, we're talking about a third season. Ain't happening. As I said, there's even more content in the third arc than in the second that was completely rushed.
And no, it doesn't just depends on sales. If the studio deems impossible or too risky to do it,(and lots of other reasons as well, like the fact that LN sales aren't being affected enough for the adaptation to be worth it for example) no matter how much the first two seasons sold for example, we won't get a third season.

Kyoukaisen-jou no Horizon was never a tittle fitted to be adapted into an anime to begin with. It's too far away and too big for this. They tried anyway, and actually did better than expected. Kuddos to them.
But I don't think you're ever going to see the two next arc which are longer than the second one. Sales or not. Because that would be even more difficult to makes it into an anime that can sale properly.

Nothing surprising.
You'll soon have the translation of the LN reaching the 3rd arc anyway, as Js06 is quickly finishing the second part of the second arc. if you want to know what happens next, your best bets are there .

Wouldn't bet against a third season but I guess other projects take priority over a third season until they feel the LN material is ready to be adapted. I'd hope for one around late 2015 latest. It's hardly gonna end up like Sora no Otoshimono which had a half baked finale. They'll want to give a fitting conclusion to the anime version but I don't think they'll want to rush it like SnO did.

There's enough material available to make not one, but 10 cours. And that's if you rush. If you don't, then about 15 cours can be made. So no, LN material being ready is besides the point.

They'll want to give a fitting conclusion to the anime

Season one and two just covered the "opening" of the story. If they were to do (which they won't) a 2 cour third season covering the third arc, far from being a "proper conclusion", this would end into a huge cliffhanger.

hey I've been wondering, does anyone know how well the second season sold over all. I found the sale statistics for the first season, but couldn't find anything on the second season.

Hey seeing as you seem to know a lot about the series past the light novels, do you what happened to Christopher Hatton, the skeleton guy.I don't think he died when the spells went off, but neither the novel or the anime ever showed what happened to him.
Do you know if he shows up, or is at least mentioned and confirmed alive after that battle?

Wow, I completely forgot about that character... I think we haven't seen him since that fight, except maybe during a short comical moment with the whole english crew but... I can't remember if he was among the others that time. And since I can't recall when that moment was... that would be a bit difficult to check.
I personally don't think he died that day (well, he was already dead from the start though), as when a named character die in Horizon, you usually hear about it. So that silence about Hatton actually points toward him still being around.

would this short comical moment be during one of the later light novels. Also maybe he has appeared in the divine chat, seeming as a lot of characters who don't get very much facetime in the novels, seem to pop up on the Divine chat. For reference his name is Desu O or death for the divine chat, depending on the translations i've seen.
