Wow this is great news indeed! And it looks like the OP song "Pastel Pure" will get lyrics written by the original Marimite novelist. The song will be performed by Ali Project? Who is that?

At the special event where they announced the second season, they played the tape of Nijou Noriko and Matsudaira Touko saying "gokigenyou," but they didn't announce who the seiyuus were...

I think the more "official" source that people would want is this:

I believe Ali Project is the group that did the popular opening theme for Noir, "Coppellia no Hitsugi." If it is them I'm a little surprised... their fast paced, synthesizer and electric guitar driven music certainly seems a little out of place with Marimite ^_^;; .

...just confirmed that Ali Project is the group that did the Noir theme. They also did theme songs for Avenger, Clamp School, and St. Luminous Mission High School.

Is the new season really starting that early in July? I heard it wouldn't air until the fall! Ah, I'm going to be stuck in Mexico with a poor internet connection in July -_- . Oh well, I'll get to see it eventually. With how popular the first season was I'm really expecting great things for the second since they'll be pumping so much funding into it ^_^

Yeah true July seems pretty soon, not that any of us will complain. ^^
But if it's official....

So the scenarios of the news 13 episodes are ready ? Can you guess which parts of the remaining novels will be animated this time ?

I wonder if team lililicious expected to take holidays, this summer... ^^

Katakura Mikiya (one of the members of Ali Project) also did the soundtrack for MariMite season 1, so if the music from the first season is anything to go by I've every confidence that the music will be great.

I hope that Marimite can improve its art in the second season.
Anime: The storyline is the main strength of Marimite and the animation is the weakest part of it. The only visible movements from the characters when they are speaking are their lips and eyes. There is also no 'breath-taking' scenary so far, although I understand that it is not a marimite's style.
Merchandise: Sadly but true, I can say that the official wallpapers are so far the best marimite art so far. Posters, CD covers, figures etc are not outstanding so far. It makes me worried what Marimite's trading cards would look like when they are released in June.

Well, at that event, they announced that they'll start from the "Yamayurikai Gasshuku" where Yumi-chan spends the New Year's at Sachiko-sama's house. This actually means they are going back about a month in the timeline from the end of the first season (which was St. Valentine's Day). This story is the second half of Volume 4 of the novel - "Nagaki (Nakaki) Yoruno" (http://forums.animesuki.com/showpost...08&postcount=3)

While the question of covering the remaining chapters such as second half of Volume 5 or the last chapter in Volume 6 remains, it is widely speculated that they will indeed cover:

All my bookmarks were deleted recently. So I've been gone awhile (trying to remember all the places I've been -_-)

Now I come back to see this news!!

~weeeeeeeeeeee


I had no idea the next season would start so soon!!! I always thought that it took a year to draw an anime season, didn't know they work so fast!

I'm so excited to see Noriko and Touko! And I hope Kanako too!!! I'm really interested in her. From all the pictures I've seen of her on the internet, she is REALLY tall! I love tall girls (being a freaky tall girl myself) ^_~

And I'm also interested in hearing about Sei and Kei interactions.

Thanks a lot for your answer.
So the first episode is Sachiko & Yumi-centric ? Perfect, cannot have enough of these... ^^

The new season *could* be 26 episodes long ?

Thanks very much for the spoilers, kj1980. I'm thrilled to hear that they'll be doing Yumi's New Year story in Nagaki Yoruno. I'm especially looking forward to seeing:

"Maria-sama ga Miteru DVD Volume 1 On Sale Special Event - 'Yamayurikai ni Nanikagoyou?' " Event report

The audiences' sex ratio was 7 male to 3 female. There were a lot more guys...
Started a little bit behind schedule.

Enter the seiyuus.

But, Itou Miki who plays the role of Sachiko-sama and Ueda Kana who plays the role of Yumi does not appear.

A role-playing situation where since Sachiko-sama does not like men, she does not want to appear on stage ^^;

Sachiko sama finally appears with Yumi, but Sachiko is still in disdain

The rest of the cast persuades her, and Sachiko finally gives in by saying "I'll give it my best."



With all the seiyuu casts on stage, they each give a short self-introduction.

The event is carried out by the seiyuus who play the third year students - Toyoguchi Memumi, Nabatame Hitomi, and Shinohara Emi.

From left to right:
Noto Mamiko, Ikezawa Haruna, Ueda Kana, Itou Miki, Itou Shizuka, Nabatame Hitomi, Shinohara Emi, Toyoguchi Megumi


Q&A Session

Other than the role you are playing right now, who would you like to play?
If she ponders about it, Itou Miki would like to play the role of Sei-sama.

Noto Mamiko wants to play a strong-willed person like Youko-sama.

"Shimako, of course" says Toyoguchi Megumi.

Shinohara Emi would like to play the role of either Sei-sama or Rei-sama

Itou Shizuka really wants to do Shimako-san

Ikezawa Haruna is upset that no one has said Yoshino yet

"I want to play Rei-chan so I can drown in Yoshino all the time" - Ikezawa Haruna

"But I also would like to do Eriko-sama" - adds Ikezawa Haruna

Nabatame Hitomi wants to play Shimako-san

The seiyuus in Marimite all seem to do their take on Shimako during their free time

Everyone gives an example of their version of Shimako-san.

But, Ikezawa Haruna comes in with a punch-line: "I am Noto Mamiko-desu~"

Ueda Kana wants to play the role of Rei-sama


A bit about your high-school life

Out of the seiyuu members, only Noto Mamiko went to an all-girls high school.

The overall atmosphere at her all-girls high school was somewhat similar to the dressing room in Marimite - says Noto Mamiko.

Nabatame Hitomi, Itou Miki, and Ikezawa Haruna says their were involved in sports activities during high school.

Nabatame Hitomi was the center position in the Volleyball team and did tons of blocks

Itou Miki was in the Basketball team, but was told to "never to be under the ring" by her team members

Ikezawa Haruna was in Equestrian, and she recalls the hardest part was taking care of her horse

Ueda Kana was in Public Announcements and was a DJ for her lunch-time broadcast entitled "Lunchtime Square"

"Why 'Square?' " pondered Ikezawa Haruna

"Because lunchboxes are square" puns Toyoguchi Megumi


Where and what kinds of situation would you would like to receive or give your rosarios?"

Nabatame Hitomi would like to give it at an ocean. On the other hand, Nabatame Hitomi admires Nagano Prefecture since it isn't surrounded by any sea

Shinohara Emi is from Nagano Prefecture

Itou Shizuka can't think of a situation...but, she says she will a bit uneasy if it is given to her with such a huge admiration since she'll be distressed on how to approach the matter

For today's event, all the seiyuus are have their rosarios in their hands

"Outside of school campus and in the evening" says Noto Mamiko

Toyoguchi Megumi seems to be favoring asking questions to Noto Mamiko ^^;


If the Yamayurikai members all go on a special getaway, where would you want to go?

Everyone agrees to: "ONSEN!!" (hot springs)

Actually, they seiyuu members do get together occasionally to go to different places.

They went to places such as flower gardens, cherry tree viewings, and dim-sum

The idea of dim-sum was given by Toyoguchi Megumi



If you were to swap your soeur (petit or gran) for a day, who would you choose?

Itou Shizuka wants Shimako-san as a petit soeur

Toyoguchi Megumi wants Rei-chan as her petit soeur

Ikezawa Haruna angrily mutters, "You philanderer~!"

Shinohara Emi and Nabatame Hitomi also wants Rei-chan as their petit soeur

Itou Miki would want to have Yoshino as her gran soeur. Ikezawa Haruna jumps for joy.

Ueda Kana chooses Shimako as her petit soeur

Both Itou Shizuka and Ueda Kana would play with Shimako-san all day long

Ikezawa Haruna wants to be the gran soeur for Sachiko-sama

Noto Mamiko wishes that Yumi-chan was her petit soeur

Itou Miki/Ikezawa Haruna and Ueda Kana/Noto Mamiko couples are born!



All the Yamayurikai members are very beautiful, what is your secret?

"Shimako, answer!" blurts out Toyoguchi Megumi

Noto Mamiko counters with "The secret is collagen, everyone."

Noto Mamiko then questions "That's collagen, isn't it" to Ikezawa Haruna, who has a bag of jellice.


Memorable moments during the aft-reco

"Rosa Foetida" was hard to pronounce, said Toyoguchi Megumi and Shinohara Emi

All Toyoguchi Megumi remembers of her role was that Sei was always eating snacks

Toyoguchi Megumi mistakenly misread Yumi's younger brother's name as "Kirin"
x 麒麟 - "Kirin"
o 祐麒 - "Yuuki"


Aft-reco surprise recording session VTR shows on screen

Reporters - Satou Rina (seiyuu for Takeshima Tsutako) and Kaido Yuko (seiyuu for Tsukiyama Minako-sama)

Shocking footage of all the on-stage members eating snacks! ^^;

The first person to bring snacks to the recording session was...Toyoguchi Megumi

Toyoguchi Megumi baby-feeds Noto Mamiko a piece of cake as much as they were real soeurs

Toyoguchi Megumi and Noto Mamiko hold hands during the recording session

The recording director comes in to the recording session wearing short pants...

Recording director quips "They're pretending to be soeurs to get the 'feel' "

Noto Mamiko didn't say too much on this VTR

Noto Mamiko loves great tasting sweets

When Ikezawa Haruna left behind her snacks, Itou Shizuka would take them to give it to her in the next recording session

Ueda Kana dropped her snacks when she slipped and fell during the rain

Recording director quips again, "Shouldn't we start getting back to work?"

Everyone in unison "No!"

Itou Miki replies calmly, "The tea will cool down."


Group picture, instead of "cheese," they say "soeur!"

end of VTR

Toyoguchi Megumi remarks "By the looks of the VTR, it seems we aren't doing our jobs..." So...


Live Aft-recording session

Episode 1 "Sachiko's Soeur Announcement"

Noto Mamiko was in getting in the way in setting up the microphones - Ikezawa Haruna reprimands Noto Mamiko "Get out of the way!" ^^;

Ueda Kana has trouble setting her microphone and required assistance from the staff members

Itou Miki couldn't help but chuckling seeing her petit soeur - "She still needs improvement."

Noto Mamiko plays the role of Tsutako-san. But she misses her line a tempo off


Episode 1 "Yumi and Sachiko's first meeting"

Itou Miki ad-libs "Ufu♥"


Episode 7 "Event decided for Valentin'e Day"

Ikezawa Haruna ad-libs "Rei-chan no baka"

Everyone wanted to play the role of Minako-sama and the aft-reco became chaotic as several members were doing Minako-sama.

Shinohara Emi ad-libs "We're finally done" to end the chaos.

Toyoguchi Megumi remarks that it became chaotic since everyone was doing Minako-sama's part - but in many ways it was very exciting, so...


From here, the seiyuus will change their roles

The role is chosen by drawing straws...and became as follows

Toyoguchi Megumi.....Sei-sama "I'm still me! That's no fun!"
Shinohara Emi....Yoshino-san
Nabatame Hitomi....Yumi-chan
Itou Shizuka....Eriko-sama
Itou Miki....Rei-sama
Ueda Kana....Youko-sama
Ikezawa Haruna.....Shimako-san
Noto Mamiko....Sachiko-sama


Episode 4 "Yumi's stomach churns"

Noto Mamiko skips Sachiko's lines

Nabatame Hitomi plays Yumi-chan beautifully


Episode 13 "Yumi and Sachiko's Telephone Conversation"
Itou Miki plays the role of Yumi-chan with the attitude of Sachiko-sama ^^;
Ueda Kana plays the role of Sachiko-sama with the attitude of Yumi-chan ^^;

Itou Miki enjoyed playing Yumi while being Sachiko
Ueda Kana had extreme difficulty in playing Sachiko while being Yumi


Episode 1 "Yumi and Sachiko's first meeting - in Kansai Dialect"

Ueda Kana and Itou Miki play their roles in Kansai dialect

Ueda Kana is from the Kansai region so she did it with relative ease

Itou Miki ad-libs, and it sounded okay

Toyoguchi Megumi sounded like the wife of a Yakuza boss

Ueda Kana believes that her gran soeur speaking in Kansai dialect is pretty good

But Toyoguchi Megumi quips that she should stay away from ad-libing in English

On the other hand, Ikezawa Haruna's English and French are perfect


Ending Remarks

Noto Mamiko was cute and untethered

Itou Miki was a very enjoyable person

Itou Shizuka was still under heavy pressure from Yoshino (Ikezawa Haruna)

Shinohara Emi was very embarassed that the VTR exposed them ^^;

Everyone on stage says "Gokigenyou"

The End of Show?


But wait, a special announcement is made: "Maria-sama ga Miteru ~Spring~" On Air beginning July 4th, every Sundays from 7:30AM on the TV Tokyo network

And the tape of Noriko and Touko saying "Gokigenyou" is played

...but no announcement of who is playing them

More info will be released on June 5th's edition of "Margaret"



After the announcement, Ueda Kana, Ikezawa Haruna and Noto Mamiko bring a huge bouquet of flowers and gives them to Shinohara Emi, Nabatame Hitomi, and Toyoguchi Megumi respectively (an early requeim to graduation of the third year members of the Yamayurikai).

Everyone takes a group picture and once again, they all say "Soeur!"

Thank you very much kj1980 for the detailed report!

One thing I don't understand are what all the Shimako/Noto Mamiko jokes are all about?
