The fact that they base how well a show is received by BD sales is kinda dumb.

Becasue that is what a "second season" is. There are 4 broadcast seasons in Japan (compared to 1 broadcast season in places like the U.S.) and since CR is in the simulcast business there are 4 simulcast seasons. Summer was the 1st season (or in TV programming speak you might say "1st cour") and the winter season will be the "2nd (simulcast) season". You might be confusing it with a "sequel", which often gets mistranslated in the West as another season.

i actually meant season, as i've never seen any show stop halfway through a storyline and call that "season 1" they always end a season at the end of an arch then begin a new arch next season

It makes sense to judge how well a show is received by looking at sales. After all, they do need money to make shows.


-----------------

Also, GATE was always planned to be split-cour judging on broadcasting schedules.

Which means if GATE retains the same time slot for the Winter, Heavy Object is also split-cour then.

This may be true to a point but many people don't buy merchandise, myself included. Not to mention that they only count Japanese sales, they care little about foreign markets. The problem with only using one model is that it leaves out other models that include other things besides sales or number of viewers. The money should be coming from multiple locations IE: DVD/blue-ray, merchandise, and advertising (which should be the biggest chunk of change).

People are complaining about open ended anime?!



Let's see Gangsta / God Eater / now Working added a 1 Hour special final / To Love Ru Darkess added EPS 13 / 14 as an hour special talk about confusing !

Even Arslan / Food Wars / Baby Steps could have more !

How about The Devil is A Part Timer / Love Lab etc !I could go on and on !

So the handling of the 12 / 24 split was handled poorly but at least it's coming back !

BTW this should have been posted in the regular GATE show discssion thread tired of seeing duplicate triple threads on current shows !

Advertising is a factor for evening anime, but not for late night anime like Gate.

Late night anime is normally more like late night infomercials in the US, in that the time slot is purchased from the station, rather than the station licensing the show. Income from any commercial time that is sold is meant to pay for the cost of purchasing broadcast time.

Then you can complain how everybody gets PG-13ed to death in the anime. How the character design sucks and on top of that you can complain that no one has translated the light novels into english. Before you know it will be on the air again!

You can also watch it on hulu and compare the how the subtitles are translated but be advised there will be a test!

You must be missing a lot of anime man, 'cuz a lot of us see this kind of thing ALL the time.

In addition to some of the shows mentioned already with similar season cliffhangers, Durararax2 just wrapped up on a similar note, as did "Owari no Seraph" from last season (which starts up again in a couple weeks ). They also did the same with "Fate/Zero". The list goes on and on....

Look on the bright side. At least there is going to be another season. There are a lot of other shows that started a story and did not get a follow-on season

I don't really mind it being delayed. Atleast the episodes aired on time and the second half will air soon. God Eater on the other hand...
