After the end of "Kiniro no Corda 10th Birthday," the 10th anniversary fan event of the visual novel series "Kiniro no Corda", the manager of Uchida Yuuya, who voiced two roles in the series, tweeted that near the end of last day's event on September 8th, an announcement would be made that the most recent game of the series "Kiniro no Corda 3" (released February 2010) will be animated.

Previously, the first game and part of the second game were animated in a 2-cour 26-episode TV series in October 2006 and 2-episode TV special in March 2009. However, unlike the first two games, "Kiniro no Corda 3" shares no common characters with its two predecessors. It is not yet known whether it will be a TV series, and no schedule, staff, or cast information is available yet.

Did you read the manga? It finishes the story (and she actually picks a guy)

Also, MAL page for this anime if anyone's curious

No I haven't. Didn't know she actually picks someone. I shall read it in the future, thanks.

^ Already mentioned before as game & drama cast is the same for the anime according to last month news.
Heroine has a voice in drama CDs, but not in the game.

La Corda D'oro was actually quite nice, pretty much the only otome game adaption anime that is watchable in my opinion. Everything else I tried sucked balls.
It had nice music and the characters were alright (the MC ones, the others I didn't care for at all...). Sadly there was no real plot and the story never progressed in any way...

So, this is why I'll give this a try.
It'll still be about classical music, right?

Might be early to assume that as the anime official website. That's the game official website before it last ended as a 'Series Information Site' for the Original game, AnotherSky feat. other schools and Full Voice Special.

You could make a case that all VNs are bad......


But you'd be wrong. Otome games and their adaptions have been of poor quality again and again. Regular VNs are not bound by this curse.


Otoge adaptions may be bad, but their games are not. It depends on the game, which is the case for any VN. And adaptations of VNs are often not that amazing, but there have been so many adaptations of VNs that are not otoge that they've come up with quite a few gems; in the case of otoge, they haven't been adapted into anime format nearly as many times as other VNs have so from what little selection there is, it's not that impressing. But sooner or later there may come a gem of the otoge adaptions, you'll never know.

Hopefully it will be at least 2 cour, since there are much more characters on Kiniro no Corda 3 compared to the original series.

I wonder which studio is going to animate this series.

I'd prefer a sequel to the original series or a translation of the VNs, but this is okay too.
