This announcement just made my week! The manga is fantastic! I only pray they follow the manga plot, although the OAD is really good, even if it is not from the manga.

Well, I've never heard about this title before, but first episode is so beautiful, just like tiny masterpiece from studio Ghibli. Now I'm really excited.

Great news! I came here expecting to watch the second OVA and now I have confirmation of a whole series too! Meanwhile, Seven seas doesn't look like bringing the OVA's in physical format along the manga

What's this? An actual anime season? I had hopes when the OVAs started appearing, it felt like it was a way to gauge interest in a sense too, and I loved the first one of those. The music in it really gave it a magical feel, which is appropriate for the kind of show it is, and the manga has only been getting better. I can't wait to see this. Ah, I'm so happy right now.
Also, 2-cour? Is that two seasons? As in we'd get 24 episodes (roughly) of this? If so, that's incredible!

Yes, "cour" is a pretentious term for "broadcast season", adopted by some American anime fans because American TV broadcast seasons are a confusing mess with little to do with real seasons.

But Japanese broadcast seasons are quite sensible, calendar, seasons. "Two cour" does indeed mean "two seasons", generally 24-26 episodes. Sometimes two in a row (Fall17/Winter18 in this case), sometimes two with a break in the middle (Fall14/Spring18 in this case).

Ah yes after some time with no new stuff in my region (at least nothing interesting IMO), fall seems to have at least one title I may end up watching.

The best way to think of cour synonymous with "quarter" (as in "a quarter of a year"), as typically single-cour series have been anywhere from 10-13 episodes and two-cour series from 22-26.


Now for some rambling:

11 & 22 episode runs have been rather common for noitaminA anime, but uncommon (or perhaps non-existent) for anything else. Normally we get 10, 12 or 13 for single cour and 24-26 for two-cour.

The 10-cour second season is a apparently a relatively recent development, as no examples come to mind prior to 2012. (The earliest one I can personally remember is Kore wa Zombi Desu ka? (Is This a Zombie?) of the Dead). While still a minority, they've been common enough they have to be factored in when we see a series announced as "one cour". It even bled into two-cour series at least once, with the first Nisekoi series being 20 episodes.

We even have a few non-OVA titles (titles intended for broadcast rather than an OVA that decision is made for later) that like to throw out all the rules such as The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance or the second Mitsudomoe series (both only 8 episodes), and The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan (16 broadcast episodes).

Holy crap, this is great news! I loved watching the first episode of the OVA (and am waiting for the 2nd one to pop up) knowing that CR picked up the Anime just makes it better!

EDIT: Hold the phone, part 2's up NOW?
