I don't watch this series, so it doesn't matter. Speaking of which, this series seems to have multiple seasons and ova.

The manga will end in Spring 2010? Well within expectation. All good things must come to an end =< Hopefully the final season can go out with a bang too, and judging from the staffs working on it, I'm going to have a high expectation =3

Chiaki Kon as director once again is a very good thing but I must say that Kazuki Nakashima as main scenarist is ULTIMATE win. I mean, even more than GAINAX, he is for me the main reason of Gurren Lagann's success since he created the scenario, the world, the themes and all the characters we love in TTGL (on top of it, he's far more renowned in Japan than GAINAX as he is a leading play writer) ! I can't wait to see this Nodame Finale, which seems to be (on paper at least) the best season of one of the best series of the last three years (with TTGL and HnE) !

Not that big of a deal, there will be plenty to watch so as long as they don't cancel it it's all good.

Agree. How many episodes will there be?

While it is a long wait it does give me a chance to catch up on the anime! Sad that the series is coming to an end though. Definitely one of my faves!
