Brynhildr in the Darkness as a one cour show? Oh boy, prepare for anime original ending but hopefully it won't be rushed.

11 eps. is to be expected with Ping Pong (at least, by noitaminA one-cour standards), but 26, 4-min. eps. for Magica Wars? Ugh, it's 6x the length, but I really hope GAINAX doesn't pull a Pleiades again and treat those short eps. like full length ones…

Yama no Susume being 26 episodes makes me a happy camper, Mahou Shoujo Taisen being 2 cour shorts is also pretty good because there's a chance the series will be decent. I should try out the game since it will be released soon.

Magica Wars: 26 episodes,

Wow, I didn't expect Magica Wars to be two cour-
Quote:
each four-minutes long

... This was meant for Encouragement of Climb instead of Magica Wars, right?

EDIT: Nope, it is 4 minute episodes. (well there goes my expectations)

On the other hand, I'm a bit surprised by the fact that not only is Encouragement of Climb getting 26 episodes, but those episodes are going to be 15 minutes (probably closer to 12 when factoring commercials) long.

The disappointment when I read what came after 26 episodes for Magica Wars is too great... Sad

Darn, I was hoping that Brynhildr would be longer, it sounds really interesting! I was excited that Magica Wars was 26 episodes, but now with them only being 4 min long, I might skip on this one for now.

Well I was already in doubt of watching Magica Wars, but with 4 minutes per episode, I don't watch this weekly. Skip for now.

Brynhildr is a one cour show? I can't say I'm exactly surprised, but I'm definitely disappointed. I guess I'll just start praying for a split-cour now...>_>

Hold on! Is Encouragement of Climb's second season really going to be 26 episodes long!? If so, then good news for me, because I loved the first one and would have loved to see more then.

Little Astro Boy already started airing. It was announced to begin on March 22 and the channel has a live stream for all to see so it's disappointing that there is so few people talking or being excited about it. I've uploaded a few short segments of the first episode on YouTube the day it aired.

It's 2 episodes every Saturday at 7 am West Africa Time.

[EDIT: After re-examining the information on the project, I made a mistake in deeming the material against the rules, when it actually is not and have re-inserted the links. Sorry! Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop -TK]

Yes, 26 episodes long, and the episodes are three times longer than the first season's episodes were, too. That was confirmed back when it was originally announced, though.
