Phi Brain is a great comedy series if you don't take it seriously.

That said, I was kind of hoping it would have an ending after 25 episodes, and not last forever.

With the time were taking on Rook, I dont think they would have been able to address the Gods Puzzle in the remaining episodes.

I agree that the series isn't that great to get a sequel in my opinion.
There are a lot of other series which could need a second season much better than Kami no Puzzle...

I enjoy this series, but don't think it is suited for another season. I mean, they feature a new type of puzzle in almost every new episode, there aren't that much kind of different type of puzzles to be introduced. They should just wrap up the story about Rook and Kaito and then end it like so.

I wonder what's the reason? It's original so no bust for manga/novel sales. DVD/BD pre-orders are extremely low too(about twice less than Chihayafuru had). High TV-rating? Large sales of other related staff? Or smth else?

Oh, I forgot it was original. That is indeed very weird then. The DVD/BD sales are going to be virtually zilch so I simply assumed it was some popular manga seeing a big sales boost. But apparently not.

I'm surprised people hate this show. Maybe some people are too stupid to comprehend the puzzles used in the anime? *shrug*

I'm happy about this news. I happy to LOVE this show.

a perfect example of how the Japanese people treat their shows is entirely not dependent on how we like them ^^

it looks like they don't want to waste time waiting for the second season, probably because they have to hit the steel untill it is hot

Some people just want to hate and Some just want to say it is bad because others called it bad, otherwise they will call him weird.

When a show unpopular like this get a sequel people say "What is this I don't even..." but when a show like Madoka get a recap everybody, their dogs and their cat called it "Awesome!"

I didn't expect this... well, I'm not either happy or unhappy about it (It's pretty much 'I don't care' XD). It's a good series, but there are a lot better ones who deserve a sequel. But I'll watch it...

Yeeeeeeeeees, now that's something I didn't expect. It will probably be a whole new plot, since the current story seems to be reaching it's conclusion. Anyway, more puzzle time is always appreciated. Also... Gammon has a sister? Oh boy, things will likely get even more interesting.

I do have to wonder why the hell they decided it would be a good idea, though. Toys and other collectibles, maybe?

the show fits the mold so the show gets the sequel. this has been the practice of how anime gets sequels for years. The shows dont even have to be good anymore. I have to admit, when i first was reading about phi brain i was very much into the hype of it. From the second episode on it continued to fail and not meet my expectations.

there many other good shows that have been not even completed, without getting second seasons, without getting a second look. examples include beck, claymore, and so very much more. Its not only an injustice to the mangeka that provide this amazing material but an insult to all that use anime and manga as entertainment. They think we all fit the mold. Well we all dont fit the mold. Start giving us something new and interesting to watch.

Once I've started something, I don't drop it. No matter how bad it is. So I'm watching the first season all way through. And now THIS? REALLY?
25 episodes were way too much already for this horrendous trash.

I actually like the show so i will conclude with:


If your going to complain that Yu-Gi-Oh! Mangas are on the top NY times manga best sellers, you must not realize how popular Card games are(as well as the fact that you get a free card).

I like this. Gammon's hilarious, so more comedy will be awesome.

I'll be ignoring the "there are better series to have sequels for" posts, since that's said on pretty much any anime sequel announcement where the anime isn't ridiculously famous. I never had any expectations, but I've been pleasantly surprised. Seems like anyone who had any expectations can't stand it, though.

I don't get you haters. If you hate it so much, stop watching and convince yourself it's over. Don't come here and whine. That being said, I didn't expect this and now I'm curious how they're gonna compare it.

New season huh :) And it begins on my birthday too xD Hahahah. what a coincidence xD.....
Even through I find this show to be quite average, ridiculous at times and I agree that there are flaws people (or haterz x3) pointed out, but still I think one of the biggest reason this show left such bad impression is mainly because it was presented in a crappy way. Plot and characters itself are not that bad, it's just they are presented in unfortunate way....It almost looks to me like even producers don't take this show seriously ....^__^;;
And so because I think this show has potential to become something good if handled right way, I'm eagerly expecting new season...On ma' Bday yo!~ xD

Then don't watch the second season. I feel the same way about the 13+ series of Precure shows, so I don't watch them. Not sure why others subject themselves to torture on purpose. There are plenty of other shows out there.

Why does shitty shows get sequels...There are lot of better things waiting for a sequel. It's horrible, I don't get how people like it. It's a puzzle show yet you can't FKING SEE THE PUZZLE + horrible attempts at comedy... I just want people to tell me what's so fking good about it.. a reason pls? or you just mindlessly like things?

I agree that Phi Brain is short on detail, but I got hooked on the overall concept/premise of the Divine Puzzle. As an artist, I thoroughly enjoy the crisp colors and character designs, especially Kaito. Granted this anime is a lot like Yu-gi-oh in style, it doesn't hold the same power due to lack of true development. Too the haters, you must have had some curiousity or you wouldn't have bother past episode 5. So, nuff said.
