So, who's animating? Gonzo, Studio Gokumi or...Sunrise perhaps? :o

(obviously, Picture Magic is out of question since they don't have the resources for a full-fledged show and I don't want it to be AIC either)

With the future teaser scenes they had at the end of the season finale, you'd hope and believe that a second season was in the works and I'm glad that ultimately ended up being the case.

Glorious news. Here's hoping it's Gokumi, given how well A Channel has turned out.

Maybe we could have a second season of Akagi while we are at it with the mahjong?

Well, I haven't watched the first season of this, but I might when I fancy some mindless moe mixed with mahjong to make it slightly less mindless.

It was about time, but i'm worried about the lack of actual plot...the manga hasn't come very far sicne the end of s1.

It finally happened eh?

And to think, they put that extended 'preview' at the end of the first season because the studio believed there'd be no chance of a second season. Well, blow me away and call me leaved. So watching.

Same here but it would take not less than a half of a year probably so thery would have enough material for 13 eps at least

About the lack of manga chapters... They'll make up stuff like last time then?

Of the first season or of this season?

I have been hoping for a season one BD box (though how well it could be upscaled remains to be seen). BDs for the second season are guaranteed though, there's no way this will be DVD-only.

And I'm not worried about lack of manga... the appeal of the show is hot yuri and utterly over-the-top supernatural mahjong. The plot behind that is only of nominal importance. Just throw a couple tournaments in and let us have fun with the characters, and call it good.

That said, I do want at least some overarching story, if only because anime-original arcs won't be able to move character relationships forward too far for fear of getting out of sync with manga developments. But there are so many fun minor characters who deserve more screen time, that even without a load of new manga chapters the anime really shouldn't be starved for potential material.

I don't mind putting off the core story for a little while if we keep getting to spend time with all the great characters in the meantime.

They will. In 2015. Then they'll do all the BDs in a week.
