Very good news indeed, since i find the OVAs generally more faithful, more action-oriented and more heavily plotted than the first anime. But yeah, agree with others that the chara designs seem rather a turn off

Wait, what happened to Tsuki no Naku? We also got Hana no Uta coming up too, this is all rather confusing. But hey, this is heaven for YQ fans. :D

This refers to Yozakura Quartet: Tsuki no Naku (which matches with the description about which volumes will OVAs will include)

This certainly will bring back some nostologia. Hell, I might even give the manga a try in the future now.

I prefer the art style of the first TV series but I didn't like how the first one was adapted considering it's from a manga...They didn't followed the story from the manga and changed so much from it which disappoints me...The OVA was good because they followed at least the original though the art style has already changed...

Now I'd like to see how the new TV series and OVA will turn out and I hope it's much better even if I kinda prefer the art style before...


Considering the new TV series will be done by the people who did the OVAs, it should be adapted correctly this time, or at least better than the previous TV series.

Dunno about the art style, though I was fine with the OVA ones too.
