For the uninitiated, In/Spectre follows Kotoko, a young woman who serves as a mediator between humans and supernatural creatures, especially yokai -- key entities in Japanese folklore.

As the pun in the title suggests, Kotoko both inspects paranormal occurrences and deals with spirits.

Being highly sensitive, she's able to sense that Kuro, a young man she meets and falls in love with, is intimately associated with the supernatural, so she asks him to assist in her mission to help yokai.

Kuro and Kotoko end up together after a series of adventures that draws them closer. So, what does the future hold for this power couple?

Season 2 is here to answer that. While the first episode was a bit underwhelming, it serves as a reintroduction to the characters and setting.

Later on, we expect to see iconic scenes and arcs from the manga and light novel series, including Kuro and Kotoko's encounter with Yuki Onna -- an important figure both in Japanese folklore and in the anime.

So, how long are these adventures going to take?

In/Spectre Season 2 is confirmed to run for a total of 12 episodes this Winter 23 season. This number is no surprise, given that most anime have 12 episodes when they run for a single cour or season.

Many older anime tend to be much longer, but new ones tend to stick to around 12 or 24 per season. Though there are a few notable exceptions like The Eminence in Shadow and To Your Eternity which went for 20 episodes per season.

So, does this episode number give us any indicator for future In/Spectre content?

In/Spectre is based on a light novel series and its manga adaptation. The latter is rather long at 18 volumes and, since both are currently ongoing, exciting new content could come up in the future.

Of course, this is not a guarantee, but anime that are based on ongoing manga tend to have a cautious number of episodes per season, with the intention of hopefully adapting more in the future.
