Thanks for visiting Anime Countdown!How long is a season of anime?The 13 week "season" that refers to a time of year or when a show starts airing is sometimes referred to as an "airing" season or a "television" season. This is like "Winter 2013 season". But since shows sometime span different television seasons, even if it's 13 episodes long, this run of a series can also be referred to as a "season".
Sometimes shows get cut off, go on hiatus, or for whatever reasons (e.g. financial) have a significant break between certain episodes such that the TV series runs through multiple "television seasons" (e.g. Girls Und Panzer) yet the show itself is still referred to as the "first season", and this is sometimes referred to as a "cour" or "series". The usage of "season" comes down to semantics. Multiple "seasons" of a TV series can also be called "series", like Galaxy Angel and it's multiple (different lengths) "seasons" are sometimes called "series 1", "series 2", etc. "Cours" however, usually refer to a 12 or 13 stretch of episodes. So a 26 episode series can be referred to as "2 cours".
But as far as the length of an anime "season", a 12 episode series run can be referred to as a "season", yet sometimes a 26, or 36, or 201 (Gintama) episode run is called a "season". It's technically not tied to a specific length, which is why some people prefer to use "cours".What are the 4 anime seasons?When it comes to TV series, there are four anime seasons in Japan. They begin with the Winter anime season followed by Spring, Summer and Fall, and each season begins and ends at the same time every year.
The time periods for each season are:
Winter season — January to March
Spring season — April to June
Summer season — July to September
Fall season — October to December
Of course, not every anime series starts on the first day of a month or ends on the last one.
Instead, they begin at various times throughout the three months, but usually in months one or two. Some will end within the same season, while others may not end until sometime in the following season, but will still be counted as part of the season they began in.Is anime animated every week?Television anime is aired on a weekly basis, but it is most definitely not produced on a weekly basis. Each episode of an anime series can have a least a six-month lead time from the moment of conception until the time of broadcast.Anime Schedule by Anime Countdown is the best way to find out when your favorite anime airs!Anime Schedule has you covered.
