According to the official website, Circus' visual novel "Da Capo III" was announced to get a TV anime adaptation. It will be aired from January 2013. Four TV series of Da Capo have been produced. The story of D.C.III game takes place seventeen years after Da Capo II.
I haven't played the VNs and I've only watched Da Capo and Da Capo Second Season, but I know Da Capo II had their grandkids as main characters (the third generation), so does Da Capo III have the fourth or fifth generation as the main characters, or new characters entirely?
GuiltyKing said: Depends on if it's needed to watch the various prequels to fully understand this one. If not, I surely will give it a shot.
No need to watch any of the prequels to enjoy.
They've pretty much started with a whole new character set.
I think this was a pretty big project for Circus to begin with.
Mad advertising for the game
Only 2 months after its game release.
Not sure if its online yet but the company gave the release simultaneously(or at least on the same day) on a separate Anime coverage program and the program ended with a supposed OP for the anime. Or at least it was a 1~1.5min sequence w/ the game OP song and original animation.
It was pretty sick because they also showed the Circus office.
DCII and beyond were pretty boring but I'll admit I'm looking forward to this one.
Again, the new set of chars is something to look forward to.
Just read about D.C. III 2 months ago, and now an announcement for an anime adaptation at the beginning of 2013? That's quick...
The original series was good; D.C. II wasn't that at par with the first (except the last few eps of D.C. II S.S.)... Given all that, I'm hoping that D.C. III's anime adaptation will surpass its two preccedents...
I should probably get around to watching Da Capo II. It's been so long since I've seen Da Capo that I can hardly remember what happened...though it seems I won't need to remember what happened for Da Capo III.
