Lol people saying a season is mediocre before the shows have even premiered. Most keen for

Psycho Pass S2
Fate Stay Night
Parasyte


The excitement just isn't there for this following season.


Yeah, I feel the same too.

Especially after I learn how Ronia turned up.

Why is Yuuki Yuuna airing over 2 weeks from now? Does that mean it's only 10 episodes like Mushishi probably is?

This may be some disappointing news for people who were expecting 2-cour series but -



Recently found this on Anichart for winter 2015... If those are the only 2-cour series for fall I'm going to be pissed.


Well that can't possibly be right because Shigatsu Wa Kimi No Uso is 22 episodes so has to be 2-cour. Apart from that, if there are no other 2-cour series that will be disappointing, particularly for Girlfriend (Kari) with its cast of 60, who can't possibly get much screentime at all in 1-cour.


Grisaia no Kajitsu is 24 episodes:

I'm looking forward to the fall anime, especially to Mushishi and Psycho-Pass.

Really? I think Fall 2014 could be an excellent season for anime! There seem to be quite a few new shows. Especially if you compare it to what Winter 2015 looks like so far. There seem to be very few new shows for winter...



Oh please. You can love or hate this season for all I care, but don't expect anyone to believe you can tell whether a series is going to be good or not at first glance before any episodes have even aired yet just because you've "seen a lot of anime".


Or maybe you've read the original source....? And also watched the previews.


That might make sense if you mentioned original source in the post I quoted. Except you didn't. Instead you seemed to think people can tell if an anime was going to be mediocre at first glance because they've "seen a lot of anime". There was no mention of having read the original source.

Besides, I don't care whether you like this season or not. That's your opinion.

However, I do think there are people who have seen a lot of anime who are still surprised by how much they enjoy some shows that they may have had low expectations for.

After I watched fate zero I have big expectation to "remake" stay night. Trailers looks great, and 2 first episode will by one hour so I can't wait!

Don't worry! There's quite a few two-cour incoming - I'm sure AniChart just hasn't updated it yet.

Here is the list I know of (that are two-cour, at least):

Gundam: G no Reconguista (Confirmed Two-Cour)
Log Horizon 2nd Season - 25 Episodes
Magi Kaito 1412 - 24 Episodes
Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo - 25 Episodes
Ai · Tenchi Muyo! - 50 Episodes x 5 Mins.
Akatsuki no Yona (Confirmed Two-Cour)
Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu - 24 Episodes
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso - 22 Episodes
Sanzoku no Musume Ronja - 26 Episodes

I expect a few more as well - as there are still a few shows with Episode lengths unannounced. :) Hope this helps!



If Nanatsu no Taizai isn't 2cour I'm going to riot. As much as I want Shingeki no Bahamut Genesis to be 2 cour I doubt it, the animation quality is too much. Spilt cour would be nice though ¬_¬..
