For once I actually am okay with seeing Miyano's name, I'm not fond of the character so giving him a voice actor I'm not fond of is only logical! >_>;

Pretty amazing picture for the second season, I was immediately reminded of how good the first one looked. Considering that KimiTodo's popularity is currently at an all-time high thanks to the movie, I can't see the budget being drastically cut, and I'm sure we'll get more eyecandy starting this January.

Is this confirmed? Because while i feel the same way about you when it comes to Miyano, i actually do think he's a good fit for Kento.

Yeah, the official website has been updated with the picture you've just posted, and the "NEWS!!" bit is about the voice actor announcement.

The official website has more news: Tanizawa Tomofumi will return to sing the second season's opening, "Soufuu (爽風)". The ending, "Kimi ni Todoke...", will be performed by the R&B duo MAY'S.

The second season will start on January 4th. Same timeslot: 24:59, on NTV.

I guess we don't need an announcement that S.E.N.S. will be working on the score again.

Now this will be more exciting, the first season is just an appetizer but this one is the main course meal I think. Will surely to HIGHLY ANTICIPATE this one.

I'm really looking forward to the second season of this anime. I really enjoyed the manga and when they announced the anime I was extremely excited. So far it's lived up to my expectations =D

So starved for news! Fortunately, the ending theme was released recently, so at least we have that to tide us over As Katapan mentioned earlier, the song's called "Kimi ni Todoke..." and is performed by MAY'S.

I must say that I like it Though the first series' ending theme grew on me -and I like it as a stand alone song- it somehow didn't really click for me as a song fitting this particular series, while this one does (as far as sound goes, I have no idea about the lyrics mind ).

Edit: Whoa, that one got deleted really fast. Let's see if this one fares any better.
Edit 2: The official blog also just updated to show the cover of the first DVD:

I checked out the manga... but I'm not really a fan of the dynamic between the two main characters. Sawako is really cute, but I'm a bit annoyed at how socially perfect Kazehaya is. I feel like the story is pushing Sawako to become "normal" by developing a relationship with someone like Kazehaya.

She seems to be becoming less and less of a unique character as the series continues, like the only way to be happy is to be normal. Given the importance of individuality and alternative lifestyles in America, I'm not so sure how well this story would do overseas (except, of course, with American anime fans who want to date a perfect Japanese guy like Kazehaya, but he seems boring to me).

Hmm... To be honest I don't think Kazehaya is perfect or boring at all... I find him to be quite charming. I wish I had my own Kazehaya. He just happens to be a good guy, while most shoujo lead males have got that "bad boy" coldness about them. Bad boys are overrated anyway (in my opinion), and there must be a reason why Kazehaya is by far the most popular shoujo male right now. I do think American anime fans are into guys like him. Or maybe not, I'm not sure since I am European, but I do frequent some shoujo communities and Kazehaya has got a lot of fans (more than pretty much all the shoujo leads combined). I also remember that Yuu from Marmalade Boy was insanely popular a decade or so ago, and he's the archetype of the "perfect" guy.

All I can say to that, is to each their own It's a matter of personal taste and I can see why the character dynamic wouldn't appeal to everyone.

However, on the off chance there's someone reading this thread who's unfamiliar with the story, I can't help but feel the need to provide a different view on this:

Because if there is one thing I feel you can't criticize this series off, it's forcing its lead to change to get to her Best End. There is no Beautiful All Along, it's Be Yourself if ever there was. Sawako didn't need to change anything about herself to get Kazehaya to notice and fall for her. Nor did she have to change anything to become friends with Chizu and Ayane. All she needed was the confidence and support to change people's perception of her. And this is something she wanted to change herself, even before meeting Kazehaya.

It's not saying "be a loner and be miserable for your entire life", it's saying "if you're a loner but don't want to be, you can change that. You don't need to change yourself, but you do need to show people the real you".

I guess this is probably the case, I certainly can see it from that perspective. I still feel that Sawako's character has had to abandon some of the weird and creepy aspects that made her so endearing in the first place.

I'm just having issues with how... in awe of Kazehaya she is. There's something about the fact that he's the most popular guy in school, yet still somehow so kind and sweet, that annoys me. I know it's fiction and can't be compared with real life, but I've never found a popular, athletic, handsome guy who wasn't egotistical, vulgar and annoying. Highschool dating taught me that.

If Kazehaya was less of a superstar at school, and had a few more flaws, I think the manga could really leave a more positive feeling in it's readers. It's one thing for a girl to think a guy is Mr. Perfect, it's another thing for him to actually BE Mr. Perfect and have everyone acknowledge that fact! haha

I've read up to chapter 51 of the manga, by the way. I only watched a bit of the first anime.

I AM SO looking forward for this season!!! And I also expect Kento to blow me away too, just like Kazehaya and Ryu.

I get where you're coming from, and I think this one comes down to tastes again Him being a genuinely nice guy is one of the things that makes the series so appealing to me. Shoujo leads are often popular, but I never get why because they tend to be jerks. I wouldn't mind seeing a couple more flaws myself, but I'm sure that'll be expanded on in his character arc Shoujo rule #7 dictates he'll get one

You've not missed anything as it's a very faithful adaptation. Except scenery porn. And a lovely background music. And- ok, so some things, but nothing story related

@Haohmaru it airs Tuesday night at 1 am, so... 8 more hours?
