People need to stop bumping old news threads like this one, it made me think more OVAs were announced.

Big tease in the last episode but more seasons are doubtful. The manga is really good though! And light novel. So buy them and read them! They're coming out in English now too which is cool.

Episode 13 completely gives away that there can be a second season. But seeing how old this post is my hopes are diminishing. Also at the end I could swear I had heard her heartbeat when they were at the bowling alley.

They should just make a second season after this. And add more supernatural factor to it.

DEEN, of course, is the main reason. Other reasons why I believe it's going to be terrible:

- Lack of source material. It'll only be 12 or 13 episodes but 25 chapters still isn't a lot to work with.
- Director is completely unknown. So unknown, in fact, that there's no information about him/her on the internet.
- nano.RIPE is doing the opening theme. I can't be the only one that dislikes their lead singers high-pitched voice.

Director is unknown? LOL AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Don't make me laugh, it doesn't matter if he's unknown as long as pulls it off. A lot of unknown people have done amazing things, and guess what, now they're known.

I predict it'll be more average than bad. Or maybe that's just me wanting hoping praying to God.

Hot spring bath...? Yeah, think I'm gonna pass on this one.

Let's see how this will turn out.

Ah! Now this seems like a series I could get into!

Not surprised for the OVAs
As for the series, don't know if I'm watching it
Don't like DEEN and there will definitely be lots of fanservice

Knowing DEEN, it'll be an ecchi episode without any actual nudity... making the whole hot springs thing pointless.

DEEN needs not to commit such blasphemy with this series.
