Why does MAL have only 12 episodes noticed, PapaKiki will have 26 Episodes ???

It's not clear yet how it's being released. The initial news was two cour, however the BD solicitations for PapaKiki strongly imply one cour. But then some of the latter information was pulled. It could be one cour, or two, or split cour. I'm starting to think it's split cour.

Anyway, I wouldn't worry about it. There are almost three months left to get some sort of additional confirmation and update the episode count.

I guess that means no Gokujou. or Black Rock Shooter, either. Funico, perhaps? They need to get something.

The CR newsletter states that there will be no more title announcements for the winter season.

Quote: "We just completed our winter simulcast announcements and with over 20 titles this season, it’s bound to keep you busy and wanting more! We’ve added shows of mystery, action, slice of life, and even ones that just provide light-hearted joy."

So no Daily Lives of High School Boys. Thank God that Sage's subbing it :)

One more box has appeared in the lineup! There's still a chance!


But it's highly likely going to be a delaycast.

Actually, since it's Listen to Me, Girls, I'm Your Father! (Papa no Iu wo Kikinasai!), it's on time.

About Nisemonogatari: which Saturday? the 7th or the 14th? On MAL it says that Nise starts Sunday the 8th.

I wonder why Funico didn't get anything?

One announcement left for now hoping for it to be the Highschool Boy one. If not I hope they pick it up later.

There is so much to watch! Its almost getting out of control for me. I still haven't finished all the anime of last season!!! Now anime I've been waiting for are now coming out and I have to add those to my list of watchable to those of last Season, added with me juggling manga's around. The Great Insanity!!! ^^

Another joins us. Finally.


I'm shocked. Isn't Another a kadokawa show? Funico didn't want it? O_o

Oh and still no DLOHB! Worried....

Jan 6, 2012 2:58 PM by Sir_Lexa

Another joins us. Finally.

Yeah, but weren't those delayed announcements? Like the Digimon series it was I think around 8~10 episodes in when they got it.

Some, but not all. Even this time around, when the lineup page was originally updated for this season there were only 13 slots instead of the 14 slots we see now. I'm not saying we should be expecting any more than what we see, just that it might happen.

Hmm since Funi dropped the license to ZnT I hope CR gets the prequels too. =D Same for Prince of Tennis since it doesn't look like VIZ is going to go past episode 50 on their streaming site.

Still hoping for Daily Lives of Highschool Boys to be the next announcement.

It isn't unknown for them to add another one or two stealth series after filling everything else out, just fyi.

Familiar of Zero F/Zero no Tsukaima Final is today's release.

Wut.

EDIT: Looking at the lineup, we may be in for one more.


I didn't expect Zero no Tsukaima to be on CR. If this means that we won't get Daily lives... I'll be mega pissed.
