Even if there is ever going to be new season of FMP someday I doubt that it's going get animated by KyoAni.

I wish ;______;

I'm actually happier about this than I would be about a fourth season though. Any future season would just be watching stuff I've already read (which would be awesome, but still)

This way, I get a canon continuation to Kaname and Sousuke's story which makes me ecstatic :D Some Tessa too~
It had better have Kaname and Sousuke in it.

I prefer this announcement over a fourth season, maybe more so due to me being able to re-imagine the characters in a shoujo-style of animation rather than that in the shows

I'd prefer another season, but a novel is good too, I guess.

Spin-off eh? Totally didn't see this coming, I love those, will defiantly check it out!

So this is the great news. It's kinda dissappointing that they didn't announce a 4th season. Oh well... maybe in the next decade...

Why? What's wrong with him writing his own novel?
