But ... just what? I don't know what they are going to do here, but it's pretty clear that the omnibus format seems to be a success ...
I'm guessing the omnibus format is most likely a hit on DVD/Blu-Ray sales as well. One "disk" per girl will help push those unsure otakus to at least buy the disk for their favourite gal (or so I would guess).

To a certain degree, at least. With the first season, there were a number of incentives to purchase the entire show as well (including those "Extra Animation" discs that were recently sent out), so overall the sales didn't fluctuate all that much between the volumes. But yeah, I for example purchased the sets for only two heroines, but I probably wouldn't have purchased these 4 BDs if not for the omnibus format since I couldn't really justify purchasing 13 volumes. But anyway, yes, I expect the next season to continue to build on that strength in some way, so that's why I expect they'll at least try to do one-disc per heroine for the existing six heroines, but we'll see...

So Hibiki and Maya will have an arc now? I hope some of the old heroines will get an episode too especially Haruka!!!

Wave or Max Factory should release new PVC figures: Haruka in her blue bikini, Sae in her pink bikini and Miya in her white one piece(for those people who prefer loli-imouto)...*drools

That would be amazing, especially if she interacts with all 6 simultaneously, but that would never happen nor sell... well maybe as an H-OVA

Are there any routes for the supporting characters in the game at all? I don't mind a 2nd season but all the appealing characters were used, Hibiki would be cool though. Maybe they will revamp the cast OR change it to a format like Kimikiss Pure Rouge, in which case Umehara may get a chance at having a fabulous high school life too.

Umehara X Keiko is good pair IMO. I'd love to see an arc about them. I don't think Enterbrain will follow the Kimikiss format again.
Spoiler for Kimikiss:


Oh man, I can't wait to see Morishima-senpai's wacky antics again. And I hope there will be a beach or onsen episode with all of the girls.

This series has my complete 100% support! Regardless of what they want to do with the second season (do a remake and have it work like Kimikiss, which mind you was even better than Amagami SS), do another omnibus format with other routes and other characters, I am eagerly awaiting this series! If they do go for the omnibus format, I want to see Maya and Hibiki too! Especially the former actually, would be quite interesting to see how a student/teacher relationship can flourish in such a way.

@ Tsuyoshi

If Enterbrain is planning to remake Kimikiss into Omnibus format they should just forget about Kouichi and just make Kazuki as the main star. Unfortunately Kouichi has the face of the original guy from the game.


Anyway I think Enterbrain is going to start with Hibiki's arc first due to the fact that Haruka can easily fit into the story. She is the "bait" of the 1st season, has her own PVC figure, highest tv ratings out of the 6 girls and i think she has the highest BD/DVD sales. These are just proof of her drawing power.

But what I'm really looking forward to, is a possible Manaka arc. I mean Eriko Futami's side of the story(Kimikiss) was such a hit because she is not a typical heroine
Spoiler for Futami's character:
. Manaka is far from normal standards and I just love the way she talks. I really want to see how Junichi will attract this weird girl.

I'm guessing that there will be new heroines.
At the same time, I'm also thinking that they will do animate the drama CD, because it fills the gaps after each arcs.

How will they continue Haruka's arc? I mean, in the last scene. It is already confirmed that they are married and it was 10 yrs ago.

I don't think they'll add characters that are not featured in the game.

In Haruka's case we can have a story where Junichi must gain the approval of Haruka's parents(Haruka's family is super rich). Unfortunately, the parents have realized that Junichi is not good enough for Haruka so they decided to take their daughter away in order to force her to meet a "better" man. Haruka must decide whether she wants to live a luxurious life with a man she doesnt like or forfeit her inheritance and live a simple life with Junichi. But obviously we know what happened...Basically the story is about Junichi realizing that Haruka lives in a different world. Is he willing to sacrifice his love or can he persevere even though her parents look down on him?

This story can be used with Sae too...She rides a limousine to school for crissakes!!!

Anyway most if not all anime/manga ends after the confession which is kinda annoying IMO. Japanese writers should focus more on the aftermath of the confession for a change.

Keiko, Hibiki, Maya, Kanae, Miya, Masayoshi, Manaka, Ruriko



The original six, and the expansion added Hibiki and Maya.
So Takahashi Maya,Hiba Manaka,Ito Kanae,Tanaka Keiko don't have their routes in the game and it will be anime original content if they show up in the 2nd season?

Read the last line of that post. Two more have their routes in the expansion.

What is it with people posting without reading the entire content.....

Actually, it's not just anime--pretty much all Romance texts end with the "I love you", plus a possible wrap-up of immediate lose ends. Beyond that, you move into Drama and, quite likely, Tragedy (see Clannad + After Story for a good anime example). Those are genres that never sell quite as well as Romance/Comedy and tend to flop if not done VERY well.

Wait a second! Why do people think Koichi has face in the game? His buddy, who plays the role of Umehara, has the face.


Also, Junichi shows his face in Kaoru's route.

Second, Amagami story is way better. However, it's what I wan the clarification. If you know Kimikiss game, you would be disappoint with the anime adaption. In comparison, Amagami is more faithful to the original work. Eriko's personality is more like Amagami's Haruka. She is a bit weird, but attractive. She is a teasing role. In anime, she's being portrayed as an ungrateful cold person. Even Eriko's actress had something to say. She said, "Aihara, you are M".
To me, the change was a failure.

I know there isn't much to discuss until more details are announced, but this isn't really the place to be talking about Kimikiss (and the Kimikiss game least of all). Let's keep this thread on topic.
