i do wonder though, why is it called ni gakki? didnt their ni gakki technically start in ep17, when miko-chin got her hair cut?

They just renamed "season" with "term" because it's a school anime. It's pretty common in animes, series, etc. It doesn't have anything to do with the anime timeline which is based almost 100% on the manga version.

Other examples:
- In GTO we don't have episodes or chapters, but "lessons"
- Hajime no Ippo, "rounds" instead.

Note:
Season is 期 (ki)
Term is 学期 (gakki)
学 (gaku) is related to school.
So technically they just added "school" to the "season" word.

A very logical explanation.
When you put ki and gaku together you get 'school season' which translates to a term, for those who still don't understand.

By the way, down here in Australia, we have 4 terms, so a semester equates to 2 terms.
