I was hoping Kalafina would sing something. Sad Oh well, Luna Haruna has a nice voice, so I'm sure the new ending will be good.

It's going to be the ED song for the 2nd half of the show, the 2nd cour, etc. whatever you want to call it. The series has been confirmed to be only 25 episodes so far.

Second season or second cour? Probably second cour, and if so, I think the article needs to make it a little more clear since it's a bit misleading atm.

In most cases a "second cour" is looked at as a "season" considering most anime is produced in and aired in 12-13 episode blocks anymore. So the article isn't really wrong.

Except for the fact that the term "cour" specifically is used to avoid this entire confusion.

Well, if you'd read the article you'd see that she:

Quote:
Haruna previously performed "Sora wa Takaku Kaze wa Utau," one of the ending theme songs for the second season of Fate/Zero (another anime scored by composer Yuki Kajiura).


So thats who she is. She's a singing. Imagine that.

Nowadays most anime are consists of 12 episodes a season (Shounen series are usually the exception). So 25 episodes mean two consecutive seasons.

Luna Haruna is going to sing the next SAO ending song? After that epic Fate/Zero ending? These are great news indeed!

No it doesn't. This is the exact reason they use the cour term in the Japanese TV industry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Cours_(TV_production)#Seasons.2Fseries

"The Japanese have sometimes subdivided television series and dramas into kūru (クール?), from the French term cours for course, which is a three-month period usually of 13 episodes. Each kūru generally has its own opening and ending image sequence and song, recordings of which are often sold."

A season is a specific block of time an anime airs. So if it airs for 2 cour, thats 1 season. If it airs again 2 years later, thats a 2nd season, not a 3rd season. Theres much confusion that can just all be fixed by using these two words with their real meanings instead of trying to use season for everything.

There are four anime seasons. Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. Each season is one cour in length.
