Seasonal anime air in three-month time frames: winter, from January to March; spring, from April to June; summer, from July to September; and fall, from October to December.
Many shows airing in the same season will start the same week and run for 12 weeks, leaving a one week break between seasons. Seasonal anime tend to have 12-, 13-, 24- or 26-episode seasons.
In the case of 12- and 24-episode seasons, these shows will air for 12 weeks at a time with 24-episode seasons being broken up between two 12-episode cores. These cores will air in back-to-back seasons. Thirteen- or 26-episode seasons will air a week early or continue a week late.
