Waited so long for this. I remember the year the 1st season finished and I marathoned it right at my kitchen table with a glass of orange soda and some doritos. If the theory of "testing the waters" is correct, I will be a happy person. I am caught up in the 400+ chapters of manga. As long as Miu's voice actor is good, I don't see why they don't make a second season. It is obviously popular enough for it to make it this far.

Most of the television voice cast are returning for the video project. However, Rie Kugimiya is replacing the late Tomoko Kawakami for Miu's role, and Yuzuru Fujimoto is Hayato, taking the place of Hiroshi Arikawa, who passed away last year. May the Furinji's RIP~

I'm reading manga, but I didn't watch first anime series, so it wouldn't be bad to have remake from start, if OVA proves to be successful.
Though, I don't really like Kenichi as a character.
Anyway, could be another never-evending anime adaptation of yet another never-evending manga.


I hope It would be a continuation, because the anime was kind of better than the manga and the pace was so great, they will below it if the gonna make it from the start again.

OVA?....maybe their just testing the waters for a second season?<span style="font-size:9%;">*I really want my second season....can't have my hopes to high though....*</span>
:/


I don't think so, after a series runs for something like 50+ episodes as a season with a long break afterwards; your pretty much going to be getting mostly OVA's for here on out. But you never know! What they are going to cover next could be perfect for OVA and after that would be perfect for a second series.

Hopefully Mamiko Noto still voices.

History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi + Brains Base?
Wow.
This is the best thing that happened with me in this century. :D
Can't wait to see it, hope they gonna continue it with a whole new season.
