Even if Koutetsujo no Kabaneri will be one cour Araki won't have enough time to do Aot for fall unless they had good scheduling and already finished Koutetsujo and Wit isn't known for that

Shingeki's been in pre-production for over a year already, though. And even KnK was announced ages ago, so I assume they should be in a good position timing wise.
It wouldn't be a first for Wit to produce two anime in a year as well so I'm sure they can manage, though I suppose the director will be spilling blood by the end of it...

They did but since Araki and the AoT staff is busy with Koutetsujo no Kabaneri, I can't see AoT airing this year. They haven't even revealed a PV or announced an airing date for it yet.

It'll definitely air this year and if I were to guess I'd say in the fall season, so I wouldn't expect them to start releasing any info or PV before June. Also, I bet Koutetsujo no Kabaneri will be 1 cour anyways.

maybe they will change the director.

I doubt that. Seems kind of risky to do it now.

I know the details for all the Love Live related CDs, but I guess I should've been clearer on what I meant. You have "Live Live!" instead of Love Live!, which is all I was pointing out.

By the way, Kimi no Kokoro wa Kagayaiteru kai? has a DB page on MAL: http://myanimelist.net/anime/31780/

Ah, old problem again. Thank you for pointing out. And it has db already? ok, I've changed the link.

"Fuyu ga Kureta Yokan", "Aki no Anata no Sora Tooku", and 'Eien Friends", should be labelled as "Love Live! School Idol Festival (Sukufesu) mobile game collaboration single". "Heart to Heart!" should be labelled as "Love Live! School Idol Festival (Sukufesu) mobile game 2nd theme song single.
The links to all those singles are lead to the product pages, which they should have the details.


That's not very informative though for anyone who may just be skimming through the list, but I guess the product page would suffice for those interested.
