What do you mean? A split cour hasn't been confirmed, so the other option is not having a split cour at all.
bone did so much shows with split cour after season end that i believe the same will go for this show after it will end

Except they'll always announce it to be a split-cour along with the episode count, way before the airing of the first cour, see Akagami no Shirayukihime and Bungou Stray Dogs for example. Yeah, all of their 2-cour shows have been split-cours since 2 years ago but like I said, they'll announce it as a split-cour firsthand. It's not like they've never done 1-cour show recently too, see Noragami and Kekkai Sensen.

There's only two possibilities for this right now, either it'll be announced as a surprise split-cour at the end of the season later and change to other timeslot in Fall (since it's current timeslot will be occupied by Gundam IBO S2 until next Spring unless it changes its timeslot instead) or it'll be just a 1-cour. We're looking for a fact here and there's none so let's not get ahead of ourselves. Of course, I do believe it'll get multiple seasons later since this is a WSJ title with potential to be the next big shounen but for now, let's just assumed it will be 13 episodes unless it is stated otherwise later.

It can change timeslot if they wanted... but the possibility of that is less than likely.

There sure are many characters in 13 episodes.

It's a shounen, what do you expect? And we know it will get multiple seasons later.

The PV was awesome. I'm so hyped. Just one week to wait!


It'll probably be 2-cour (around 24 eps) though

It's already confirmed to be 13 episodes (unless it's a surprise split-cour). It's timeslot will be taken over by Arslan Senki S2 and Nanatsu no Taizai specials in Summer.
and i think after summer Gundam Iron-blooded Oprhans is back in this timeslot sooo ... its gonna be minimum spring 2017

13 episodes? Where will it end? The Sports Festival?

Mar 27, 2016 3:19 PM by Leeiteee

Lol Suwabe for Aizawa xD
that'll be great but I was hoping for Inoue Kazuhiko

Mar 27, 2016 2:31 PM by eisan

So, Suwabe-sama going to voice another badass looking character huh?

I missed his voice so much <3

Mar 27, 2016 12:25 PM by Nordavind

Seriously? Only 13 Episodes?
How many more bad news to come on March 27?
Oh wait, It's March 28 now.

Good choice of seiyuus. Their voices will fit the characters perfectly.

Mar 27, 2016 10:11 AM by yuliyana29

13 episodes is not enough to have all the stuff in it. Too many things will go unexplained and there really won't be any ''epic'' finale episode with the episode count. We won't see enough of Todoroki Shouto who I think is quite an important character, we probably won't see much interaction with the other main characters as well. If it's 13 episodes, the main focus will only be on Midoriya (or Deku)'s development with his power and show off other people's powers as well. The manga really doesn't get into any special story line until later on.

So hyped for this.

Mar 27, 2016 7:28 AM by Orange

i was spechless while watching the PV and LOL in the end.
i don't know why but i can feel this is gonna be really good especailly with the story.

Bones have been doing split-cours for all of their 2-cour shows since 2 years ago. If it's really a surprise split-cour, either this or Gundam IBO S2 will have to change their timeslot since the latter is coming back in Fall.

Mar 27, 2016 7:07 AM by EasyGo-er

It might be split cours

That's how Bones rolls.

(Shirayuki, Stray Dogs, and Concrete Revolutio are recent examples)

Mar 27, 2016 6:53 AM by Fumito

New PV looks great, even though it most showed the first chapter of the manga. Also Suwabe's a great chose for Aizawa :D

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a split cour for this as Bones gave Bungou Stray Dogs and Concrete Revolutio the same treatment. Plus the manga sells like hotcakes.

Remember it's 13 ep only.
Judging the pv, looks like they can do justice to the first two chap of emotional outburst. But well, my hype was reduced to half already by the ep count.
Damn didnt know it's 13 ep :/
kinda lose all my hype already. *sighs*
Hope they announce it 2cours later.

Maybe split cour. Summer already has that slot filled.
