Let's keep milking this teen melodrama trope, best know as: money cow of the century, to freaking oblivion!
Why actualyl produce some new stuff if otacos gonna buy anything we do anyway?
Kind expected this from Tatsuyuki, but not Mari Okada-domo... not after WIXOSS.
Damn, I shall pray to P.A.Works save animu.

I wish they would stop milking this franchise. I love it, but after that movie, this hardly seems necessary.

Did you even read the topic? How are they milking the series if this is a different work? It's like saying that Watanabe is milking Cowboy Bebop because he's Zankyou no Terror's director...

Awesome news :D

I guess people either love Mari Okada or hate Mari Okada. I loved her work in Anohana, NagiAsu, and Toradora :) I still need to watch Hanasaku Iroha though.

The part about the description of the characters relates to same age group right? I have to make sure.

Same or similar. I only know that it's "young group" of characters.

They already tried to recreate anohana with ano natsu de matteru which was terrible so I have low expectations

Ano natsu was not related to Anohana in any way at all, apart from having the same character designer and director. Mari Odaka was not involved with Ano Natsu. Ano Natsu is related to the 'Please Teacher' and 'Please Twins' series.
