An OVA would probably work better than a TV series. There's hardly enough for a season (if counting only Darkness) and nobody wants to see the borderline-H aspect butchered by beams of light.

Otherwise, FUCK YEAH TLRD


Pretty much this
But nonetheless i can't wait

as much as I like the TLR series, I'm not sure if I want to watch this.

Darkness, I thought, was a huge mess.

Censor will get more screen time than any other character in the show. This is dvd material not something that can be shown on air.

Very excited for this. I hope that they follow the manga more closely like the OVAs/Motto did rather than the crappy (in comparison) first season.
Also, there better be plenty of Kotegawa.

I think they should of waited for more manga chapters to come out, but I'm still excited nonetheless.

Epic. I got a bad feeling that we will see white beam of light out of nowhere. It will be censored until DvD/Blue Ray is out.

I just hope it isn't TV series. It has to be OVA. Free of censorship. BD quality. Otherwise, it would be blasphemy for Yabuki's god-like censorship-evading and moe&sexy-at-the-same-time characters drawing skills. Anime is inferior to manga (both seasons and OVA), and Darkness is much better than original TLR. I hope they''ll manage to create something worthy of being called To LOVE-Ru: Darkness.

That's good and all but they don't have enough material for a series at the moment, an OVA on the other hand would be doable.

AWESOME NEWS but waiting to see how the anime will be done since some of the content of the manga is really pushing even for an AT-X broadcast. OVAs would be the best IMO.

More Mikan is always welcomed as usual.

I can the see whole episodes having 100% light of evil meaning you aren't going to see anything and you wasted 24 minutes of your life.

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).

Yeah, sadly it looks like an OVA instead. Sucks.

Good, now we don't have to worry about censors (much)
and it was obvious that it'll be an OVA. Current material can hardly make a 4 eps anime.

What? Its got 18 (and likely 24) monthly chapters by the time it comes out. You can easily do 2 chapters with smartly added filler per episode.

If we get an OVA each month, the more the happier I be, that probably best solution for this series than a TV series...

Oh well, i'm pretty sure it'll get a TV series later, depending on how well the OVA sells.

Still conflicting reports. Here's one pointing toward TV series.

Hopefully the one saying its a TV series is the one that is correct.It would be fully release and even uncensored released before all the OVAs are released. OVAs tend be released one episode once a month or ounce every two months and sometimes longer assuming there its even a mufti-episode OVA series.

That picture seems like the most legit one yet... its a scan from Jump SQ, the magazine that runs it. I'm taking that as official confirmation of a TV series.

I wouldn't get so excited just yet.

It will be nothing but screen flashes on the screen for an entire ep.

Should be more excited for the BDs :p

Am I the only one that's not excited by this, I still don't know what did you guys liked about that anime. There's no real interesting plot, the ecchi aspect is butchered by the beams of light hiding every single thing.Oh and I am also forgetting the terrible ways they ended s1 and s2

I think it's silly that people are saying that there isn't enough content out yet in the manga to adapt TLRD. I think that you could get an easy 17 episodes out of what has already been released without even having to add much or any filler. Trouble quest in the manga ran 6 20 page chapters and TLRD averages 40pages a chapter. I think you can safely say that they cut Trouble Quest up into a third of what it was in the manga, so that comes out fairly closely to one episode being able to be made from 40 pages of manga.
That aside, I also think it's a <i>good</i> thing that they are adapting it into an anime early, rather than way late like they did with the first season (not including that I think they may actually be adapting it ~10 chapters too early, give or take :)). With the manga being this early on, they are restricted to add "filler" (if you want to call it that, I don't). Meaning, they will be able to, or may be forced to, go at a much slower pace, adapting more important points from the manga than they did in the first season. They won't be forced to try and rush the anime to catch up with the manga (which they really weren't in the first place--dumb) like they did before. TLR really has no point other than to enjoy the characters interacting in all the random scenarios they are thrown in, and I think that's something they didn't realize at all when adapting the first season.
I'm glad to see that other people are also saying that the manga was much better than the anime because even though I've only finished the first season and the OVA, that's what I think too.
I think with the scope of a one season, 26 episode, anime adaptation to cover most of the TLR manga that was out at the time, the series was as good as it could have been. The thing that I loved most about the manga TLR was that you got to see the characters have fun and develop, but that isn't really possible in only one season of anime.
I think the idea to stray from the manga was commendable, because there wasn't much you can do while trying to stay completely true to it while compressing it so dramatically. However, the execution, pacing, whichever, was horrendous in the first season (haven't watched motto yet). The OVA got me excited, but it wasn't enough; too little too late.
Honestly, I don't care if every episode in TLRD is full of filler, or if they 1 to 1 with that manga, it doesn't really matter (although I'd prefer 1 to 1 =]). All that matters is that they don't **** it up like they did with the first season. Whatever they do, they have to do it (well) RIGHT because that's all that matters.

Epic. Darkness has been noticeably better than everything previous imo. This seriously needs to have the harem ending with Yuuki as the new emperor of the galaxy too lol

Recent chapters in the manga have sort of let the story drop off to the side which kind of bothers me. Part of the reason i thought Darkness was doing so well is it seemed to be more on track story wise. Hopefully we get plenty of story to go with the ecchi when the anime hits.

Either way Momo has always been win as far as all the girls go and i can't wait for her to step up to the female lead position. Lala is just too brainless and ditzy. Momo on the other hand is smart, conniving and interesting. Even if Yuuki weren't up to the task of being emperor he could do it with her backing him.
