Well the show was originally planned to be 24 episodes from the very beginning. There wasn't much of a need to make this first half completely self contained when the creators knew they had 12-13 more episodes to work with.

Better that it return than leave off with a massive cliff hanger and not get a 2nd season or 2nd half.

People are complaining about open ended anime?!

^ Lol, yeah, and it's ironic since this is more what you'd expect, and yet it seems people complain more about anime that are complete and don't get a second season!

i'm not complaining about "open ended" if it had actually reached the end but this is clearly halfway through

The last few episodes have actually been pretty bad IMO. It was really pure entertainment for the first half of this first cour, but I feel like they've gotten side tracked quite a bit. Too many forgettable side characters get featured (I marathoned the thing in the day yet I still couldn't always recognize who I was watching), especially with the formation of that little town outside camp. And the political machinations are just kind of confusing and not terribly interesting.

So I'm not even all that stoked for the return, to be honest. Leaving off at like the dullest part of the series thus far probably wasn't a great idea for viewer retention when it comes back

I didn't get by episode two of Gate but it does suck that it has been made a split cour when originally it was presumed to be a continuous 24 episodes.

Yeah it feels bad, right after they started the "red dragon & dark elf" arc. But what can we do ?
Apparently there were productions issues and the BD sales were bad in Japan.
When you think about it, we can almost consider ourselves lucky to have been promised a second season.

You know that your system is a little bit broken when you are banking on BD sales while in the middle of airing something

Not that having an anime Nielson Family rating would be any better. *shudder*

I wouldn't give any credence to the latter, given that the first video volume isn't scheduled to go on sale in Japan until September 30.

not sure why people are saying "second season", how can you call it a second season when it's literally the other half of the first season?

You're right. I confused with Rokka no Yuusha. My bad.
