What are our chances for a third season?
Nonexistent. Sales plummeted horribly.



I read newer volumes of manga (6-6.5-7) and I must say, what Shaft did with second season was murderous to the series. Warm ongoing storyline in the manga is just so much more awesome than RANDUM Shaft-type comedy. And while everything else from Shaft lately recieved Bluray release (even Arakawa! Made by the same companies!) Arashi is missing out. As an honest customer, I am greatly suddened by how it all turned out.

Oh well, at least there is still manga. Which is good. Really good.

That's what happens when you make a second season without that much material yet from the manga.
Still a good season2 show to watch.

They discarded an honest bit from volumes 4 and 5 for no reason whatsoever.
And Vol 6 was out by then as well, although it doesn't have something of a conclusion like 3 and 5 have.

They took more comedy in 6.5 sadly...
But still NNA s2 is a good anime to watch.
But NNA s1 is much better, in the OP and story.

Not sure what you're talking about. Episodes 5-8 and 11-13 of S2 are anime original, nothing like that is in 6.5. There are a couple of 4komas, but they are unrelated.
Speaking of 6.5...

Spoiler for size:

Gotta love these sketches!

Eh?! Well, that sucks. It's not that suprising I guess. I woud love to read the manga, but scanlators have never really been crazy about it...can't find anything past volume 2.

Turns out that there was a special ending video made for DVD version of Episode 11 (S2), which, curiously, parodies Shiraishi Ryoko's music clip on S1 ending (Kirari Futari).

In other news, seventh volume of the manga is such an epic dissonance with the back half of the show...

That was pretty awesome. It's really an animated version of the Kirari Futari PV.

Still dying to read the manga......

This makes me feel horrible, especially since the best episodes of S2 (the non-filler) were better than the excellent but consistent episodes of the first season. I'm crestfallen there won't be more, yet I can't help but speculate that even if there was, it would have more in common with S2 than S3. The first season was really like a bolt of lightning, maybe Bakemonogatari's success helped it come out intact?

SHAFT is kind of a mixed back right now, they can make God Tier and High Tier shows like NnA and Bake, respectively, but are just as likely to nuke said titles in a rushed sequel.
