^ Wonder if they are keeping the same OP in the movie. Perhaps they will use a new one when they get a new theme song written, which I am sure will be sung by MomoClover again.


I'd prefer a new theme song over the same Opening as the anime.

^^^ The year will fly by. Sadly winter movie probably means... what... spring BD for import? Gotta rig myself a coincidentally timed business trip to Japan next winter for this one!

Was that mentioned somewhere? I'd be a little disappointed if it doesn't even hit theaters until 2014. Though I don't expect anything before late 2013 at earliest so I guess it wouldn't be too shocking.


The winter date seems to be coming from:

I like shows without ecchi (doesnt stop me from watching ecchi).
It was strangely addicting and Kane was pretty sexy for an anime young adult >.>

There's also some real shoujo-ai between 2 of the yacht club members during the Jenny arc (kissing, holding hands), if that interests anyone >.>

I'll be cool if they can produce the next arc into a full budget movie. I'm actually excited about this.

A sequel to the final episode? This has got to be interesting, but it's gonna take forever until I'll be able to see it. -.-

WTH, now any anime has a movie now ???
Awesome. Can't wait for the Mars of Destruction movie

I found the show incredibly boring. Just like Guilty Crown, whatever it had going for was ruined by how stupid/boring the rest of it was. It contained little to no "thrilling" moments, every story arc ended in an anti-climactic way (the bad kind), character designs were horrible and misleading, the characters were bland and forgettable and it had a bullshit ending. Why it's getting a movie sequel confuses me to no end (everything seems to be getting a movie nowadays).
I dreaded watching it every week and I was ecstatic when it FINALLY ended.

I don't care if it is a sequel or retelling, I will watch it regardless. I loved the anime and thought it was the most enjoyable anime since Madoka Magica (for me anyway). I would have much rather preferred a second season though.

eh, movies take too long to make. I'd rather they do a second season instead. And yes, lets pray that this isn't a recap movie.
