Shiina would be too obvious, she's the character the title is talking about.

Though, at this point, I just hope it doesn't end with the whole "I don't know which one, but I like them both" to leave another season open for possibility and then we end up never getting closure. That would ruin it for me.

Yeah I know its cliche for Sorata to choose Shiina, but I just like her personality more. I don't have anything against Nananmi, so of course everything I say is just personal preference. The whole Shiina/ Nanami problem aside, I agree with how they need to pick one or it would ruin it.

It is based on a light novel, not a choose your path visual novel so we should get a single ending at least, could still be open ended. I know where it is by the end of the eighth novel but I won't spoil it here. And they could change it the anime anyways. The real issue is that the novels aren't finished yet so I don't know how they are going to finish this season, at the end of the 7th or 8th novels maybe...

Would he happy with either one for Sorata and Rita x Ryuunosuke

Well, for the people saying that Season 1 isn't over yet, a season is, well a season. Around 13 weeks so thats 13 episodes which is a typical season in anime. Of course, filler anime are different, I'm sure a season in filler anime is each arc. So in this case Season 2 would be from now (episode 12 or 13?) to around 24 to 26.


Yeah, I understand what you're saying, and honestly I don't think you're wrong. But please allow me to tell you my opinion on how I think seasons work:
When a series is ordered, they have a set number of how much they have to make. With that set number that ordered, that's how I consider what a season is. I would just say this will be a complete series until they order more episodes. However; with anime like Naruto and its arcs, yeah I don't want to get into that because I won't know where to start with that and even then if my answer will have some sort of understanding. If that didn't make any sense to you, I'll try my best to explain just not here anymore because I'm not adding to the topic :)

My example(s) are
Medaka Box (Season one) & Medaka Box Abonormal (Season 2)
Sword Art Online (I think twenty-five episodes were ordered in the beginning and they have broken those up into two arcs. But I would just say this is a complete Series)



A lot of people still seem to get confused on this and part of the problem is confusion on the words season, series, and story arc.

A season (or cour) generally consists of 12 or 13 episodes and are broken up into the 4 seasons of the year (Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer). So when a show is 2 cours long, that's 2 seasons (approx. 24-26 eps ) versus one cour (12 or 13 eps) or 3 cours (approx 36 eps - kind of rare) or 4 cours (50 to 52 eps) etc.....

When a production committee first forms and gives the green light for production to start, they determine how many seasons (cours) the show will be. Now if that series turns out to be successful, another committee may be formed and they will make a sequel (or prequel). But this will be considered a separate SERIES. The confusion comes when local licensors/distributors market that second series as a second SEASON.....regardless of whether the first season was one, two, or even 3 or 4 cours long. But in Japan they don't do this.

Take for example "Clannad" and "Clannad After Story". Here in the West we often mistakenly refer to them as Season One and Season Two respectively. But in Japan when you see "Clannad: the Complete Series" advertised....you're only getting eps 1-24. "Clannad After Story" is considered a whole separate series. And when you see them listed in those Big Globe polls, they are listed separately as well, rather than as one SERIES. That's why they have different names. Same goes for shows like "Code Geass" and "Code Geass R2", or "K-On!" and "K-On!!" (with 2 exclamation marks). Notice they almost never use the word "season" in their marketing. That's just something we add on to it in the West.

Sometimes you might see a 2 cour series packaged as one box set in Japan and they might say "contains both parts 1 & 2". That's still 2 seasons.

A story arc is just a segment of a larger, over arching story, and does not necessarily have to line up with the start or end of a season. So something like "Sword Art Online" had several story arcs in the first season, but the second season (Alf online) wasn't a story arc, but a whole different story.

So YES....season 2 of Sakurasou does start with episode 13.


Actually, I think the confusion is between the term cour and season. A season simply refers to a period of time marked by certain conditions. It doesn't have to refer to the 4 climate seasons of the year. For instance, the Major League Baseball season takes place over about 6 months. In the case of anime series, it refers to the period or length designated for that series. In this case, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou series and season has been designated 24 episodes over the course of 6 months. This one season just so happens to consists of 2 cour, and each cour happens to coincide with one of the 4 climate seasons (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter). If they chose to add another set of episodes to The Pet Girl of Sakurasou series, those episodes when then become the 2nd season, but it's still the same series. Just because they have different names doesn't mean that they are different series. It just means they gave the seasons different names. So no, Clannad ~After Story~ is still the second season of Clannad. An even better example would be Cardcaptor Sakura, which consists of 70 episodes divided by 3 seasons and 2 arcs. If you count cour and season as the same, then it would be 6 seasons and 2 arcs, but nothing to distinguish between episodes 1-35 and episodes 26-46 as it has been. If anything, it's not the West that's using the English term "series" mistakenly in its advertising, but Japan. Otherwise, what term would be used to refer to Clannad and Clannad ~After Story~ together?

Keep in mind we here especially in the West are used to TV shows being "open ended". That is when they are first given the green light, there is no preset length to them. So long as the ratings are good enough they keep getting renewed until their viewership dies down. But the Japanese TV industry is very different. Most of their shows episode runs are predetermined. In fact technically the practice of cataloging TV shows by "seasons" is really only used for shows that don't have a predetermined episode run (ex. "Naruto" or "One Piece" or "Bleach" or any of the "Dragonball" series). The run for these shows if successful can be quite long and you end up with dozens or even sometimes hundreds of episodes and it is much easier to index them in seasons for either syndication or the home video market. Just like if you wrote a book and it was over 200 pages, you would break them down into chapters normally. But if you just wrote a 2-3 page short story then it wouldn't make much sense to break up something that short into chapters.

If you notice, all cours tend to coincide with the climate seasons, which is one of the reasons it's so much easier to refer to "cours" as "seasons" when talking about how long a television series is, and that's why some of us here on CR do that, even though technically the method of archiving and indexing shows by seasons isn't really used in these short limited run shows that average 1 or 2 cours in length.

The TV industry in Japan more closely resembles the movie industry here than our TV industry. For example just like "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy is made up of 3 movies ("The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", & "The Return of the King"), each movie in the franchise is separate. Ditto for the "Star Wars" franchise. When I was a kid and "The Empire Strikes Back" first came out, nobody referred to it as "the 2nd part of that move we saw a few years ago", just like when "Return of the Jedi" came out nobody referred to it as the "3rd part of that Star Wars Movie". Or just like in the publishing industry you can have a successful series of books like the "Harry Potter" books. You have many books in that franchise, but each book is separate. It's not one really long book published in installments.

Same for most TV series in Japan. Take the "Zero No Tsukaima" franchise. It is made up of 4 series (the original, and "Sogetsu no Kishi", "Princess no Rondo", and "Zero no Tsukaima F"). Though each is a sequel to the one before it, they are considered 4 separate TV shows, and if you go to Japan you see them marketed as such there.

I don't doubt that Japan markets them separately, but it still doesn't change the fact that they are separate seasons in a series, not separate series. As I said, a television "season" is not the same as a climate "season", much like a baseball "season" doesn't coincide with one climate "season". It may be easier to refer to a cour as a season that way, but it's not entirely correct. As far as having separate names is concerned, some seasons have separate names, some don't.

Using Random House Webster's College Dictionary as my source:
season, n. 4) a period of the year marked by certain conditions, activities, etc.
series, n. 5) Radio and Television b) two or more programs related by theme, format, or the like

Given what the definitions of "season" and "series" are, it doesn't make sense to say that a show like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou is 2 seasons in length, as there is no condition marked that separates the first 12 episodes and the last except for the different openings/endings. However, not all series do this, such as the first 22/23 episodes of Clannad, so that argument doesn't work. It's simply a season that uses 2 openings/endings. It also doesn't make sense to say that Clannad and Clannad ~After Story~ are separate series, as they are both related by theme. Same thing with Zero no Tsukaima.

"Or just like in the publishing industry you can have a successful series of books like the "Harry Potter" books." By this statement, I think you just proved my point by saying that all the Harry Potter books together make up one series. Only in this case, each separate book is a separate season, not series. In response to your comparison of book chapters to seasons in a tv series, I think it's more accurate to compare book chapters to individual episodes in a tv series. Those chapters together make up a book, just as those episodes make up a season. The Harry Potter books are separate books, yes, but those books are also connected to each other as one series. Likewise, an anime show may have separate seasons, but they are all connected to each other as one series.
