According to the official twitter of Yasuda Suzuhito, an OVA series of Yozakura Quartet was announced. They "reset" the first series and will faithfully reproduce the original story of the manga so that the fans of the manga will be satisfied with the anime. The voice cast will be the same as the first series.

Title: Yozakura Quartet ~Hoshi no Umi~

Director, Character Designer & General Graphic Director: Ryo-timo
Production Studio: Tatsunoko Productions, KMMJ Studios

The first volume will be bundled with the manga volume 9 to be released this October.

Not really. It's still good.
Also the first episode is already out. Well, it's fine. I like the way the plot goes but I have to say the previous anime had better visuals. I liked the character designs in the first series much better. I guess I get used to it sooner or later though.

Am wondering the exact same thing

The manga actually addresses the problems with the first adaptation and why they chose to do it that way.
The first one was good, it just didn't have enough of the story plotted out beforehand to make a decent attempt at it.

I would guess that this time they're going to be more coherent with things, so it should get a better rating.

I just hope it doesn't mess up.
The tv series was definitely a disappointment.

Now in my "plan to watch"!

Hope this one will be better than the previous Yozakura Quartet,I enjoyed it but at the end I was a some kind of dissapointed.

Good, I didn't like the first one seeing as they totally went off from the manga's storyline. I kinda wish they stuck to the manga art style though, it's a lot better than the anime.

I AM SO PSYCHED. This will definitely make up for the long wait between books.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that hated the way the anime ended. Pfft.

I thought the original show had a lot of potential. I haven't read the manga but I'm really looking forward to this OVA release.

I read the dude from Suemitsu and the Suesmith is doing the ED and all the background music.

Ohhhhhhhhh god, I'm extremely excited about this. I'm a little bummed that Brains Base didn't get their hands on this ova, but the man leading the project makes it more or less the same. Wonder if Akio Dobashi will still be doing the music?

EDIT: Oh shit, it just only occurred to me that since this is a reset, we finally get to see Hime with her lacrosse racket. Double sweetness!!

I read on another site that Yuu kobayashi is going to make the storyboard. Is this true?

And because they're comparing it to the manga now, the more I'm not going to read the damn thing (if at all) until I'm done with this coming Yozakura Quartet. It's nice to be ignorant of some things. As I didn't even know it came from a manga, I was able to watch it on its own merit. I was entertained and that is enough for me.

YES. This better match up to the manga, not only in art but also as a whole. I don't mind it not being able to completely stick to the manga's storyline, but it better damn well be done great and do the source justice.

The TV series ruined the manga. The art only slightly looked like Yasuda's, and the story was completely butchered. It wasn't a bad show, but definitely horrible compared to its source.

Wow, looks like the art would be pretty good, if that's what I think it is. It doesn't look quite as much as Yasuda's (lacks a sharpness, whatever that means), but it's good and doesn't look as butchered as the TV series or Kamisama Kazoku. oh my god Rin you are so cute <3

I like Kishida's work in Durarara!! better (which was near identical to Yasuda's, I swear, and he did the same almost-perfect style back in Baccano! with Enami too), but I have high hopes for this. Not to mention the key animator also did the same for Dennou Coil and others.

I cannot wait for OVA, even though I only read one chapter/volume (I don't remember) of manga, I enjoyed the anime series and looking forward to how it would look with original manga story.
