Still haven't watched the first and second seasons, yet a third season has already came out.

The fault of Okawari was they tried to add some "sad" drama to a show that relies mainly on gags and comedy. The end result was a mis match of genres and it failed horrible at both. It was neither sad nor funny.

Didn't expect this so soon.

more blonde Chiaki

It was such a failure...

Meh, more blonde Chiaki, blackfaced mobs and the others feats of Okawari characters designs D= At least I hope that with the new director the series will regain at least some of its humour that was lost in Okawari.

Hmm, they really like changing things up between the seasons don't they? At any rate it will be interesting to see how this one turns out.


Change of the director can have a great effect on the anime. I hope it works for the better. I just don't wanna see another original character screwing up the story.

Whatever, I don't expect any more out of this than the second season. Good to know an air date though.

Who were the Director and Organizer for Okawari? Also, any news about a name other than "Minami-ke Season 3"?


Okawari's staff
Director: Hosoda Naoto (Director of "Shuffle!", Character designer of "Bamboo Blade", "Nagasarete Airantou")
Series organizer: Suzuki Masashii ("Shuffle!", "D.C. II S.S.", "Utawarerumono")
Character designer: Tanaka Masaki

Other staff of Minamike 3 were not given in the article.

:D -runs around in circles- MORE CHIAKI!

I liked the first season, but after I read some negative reviews, I decided not to watch the second season. Hopefully this third season will be better.

Thats like the worst news ever. Did they not learn from the abysmal sales and crappy feedback from the Japanese fans?

Sep 20, 2008 12:43 PM by Kraker2k

Sigh, I like the designs from the first season better... but nonetheless, i'll be watching this!
