Well, where there is despair and darkness, there is always spec of light and hope.
noitaminA head producer saying at a noitaminA seminar that they might start increasing 2-cour productions in the slot.
This is my own personal speculah, but I think this will probably start with Guilty Crown and UN-GO in the fall. Which is great, since it means they've learned they can't fit sci-fi otaku series into 11 episodes. That said, this puts us even further away from the noitaminA of old (not that I mind, I'm not a fan of most shoujo romances anyway).
