More stupid Kanako antics! More sultry Kobayashi voicing =03!!! This should be quite nice. I guess I'll need to quickly rewatch the series again, even though I've already watched it earlier this year.

It's Shaft, I'm in no matter what.

Daniel Lind 2010-10-21 08:35

Oh boy, I wish for Natsu no Arashi! 3 even more now.
Though Starchild is no Mediafactory. :(

Jarmel 2010-10-21 08:38

Great, loved season 1.

Kafriel 2010-10-21 08:59

Yumm, moar lesbian princess cross-dressing humour xD

Kakkou 2010-10-21 09:28

The question is, can they top HANAJI with the new op in terms of both song AND sequence?

Dop 2010-10-21 10:55

Fantastic! I'm up for more of this.

Same here. I happen to love the first season too, so it's all good.

Shinbo and SHAFT have yet to disappoint me. And given how zany season 1 was, I can only imagine what season 2 will be like.

Yeah so badly, though those poor sales figures tell me it's never gonna happen. :(

Personally Maria+Holic is one of the best manga to anime adaptations Shinbo x SHAFT have worked on, so to have a second season makes me very pleased. With the 17th volume being released next week, there's plenty of material for the series. Going by the amount of seasons and specials Hidamari Sketch and SZS have, it's about time a second season for this fantastic show was announced.

& oh my the image that holds the announcement. Maria my king~

Seconded.

I also second the other comment about the OP.

I really hope they can top HANAJI, but let's see them top Kimi ni Mune Kyun.

Trogdor Jube 2010-10-21 20:31

I just knew one season wouldn't do this show justice.
I can't wait.

Even Dance?

MisaoFan 2010-10-22 00:18

This and Sket Dance are both directed by Akiyuki Shinbo and animated by Shaft to be scheduled next April.

Well, it certainly will be by SHAFT + Shinbo, but not other details are out yet as well as Sket Dance for that matter. Any source, or are you pulling this out of thin air as usual? :rolleyes:

omimon 2010-10-23 05:38

I love Shaft, and a gag series like this one is definitely their forte. Call them a one trick pony if you want but Shaft is the best gag anime studio in all of Japan.

I thought Maria†Holic also had bad sales? (I don't know why, I love Mariya... T-T)

This...

I feel like i'm gonna seriously cross the border with the second season of MH... Mariya is seriously hawt and i don't mind loving her and do everything i want with her, coz i love her sooooo much.........

Yea i seriously don't mind even if Mariya is a shemale.


With that said, bring it on 2nd season ;)

Maria holic sales was about 4000, and I was surprised about it getting season with this poor result. My guess is that they had the second season already planned when the series aired (in other words, split 2-cour project which a lot of recent animes seem to be taking), but due to there lack of staff and sales, the second season was postponed indefinitely. However, since they are collecting money money money from Bakemono, Arakawa and Hidamari and stuffs, they decide not to cancel the sequel for the sake of fans.

Before bakemonogatari delays, shaft was known for sticking with their plan regardless of its outcome from sales, like natsu no arashi getting 2nd season. (when bakemonogatari was airing, they were working on too many project at once with extremely few staffs, so when they are making OP for certain japanese tv show, key frames are drawn by single staff.) That's one of the plus point that shaft deserves over other studios.
