Btw speaking of the Chihayafuru manga, vertical had a poll on their FB about what series we want them to license, & Chihayafuru was a choice on the poll. I don't think its getting enough votes though so go over & vote.
Well it's in fifth place now, even if it only has half the votes of Princess Jellyfish. But I have to wonder if the people voting have ever looked at Vertical's catalogue? Because I just don't see them putting out Baka & Test or Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere.

This is probably one of the best news I've heard this week ;____;

The question is, how much episodes this season will have? And when will it air?

Unfortunately, only found this a little while ago, but Vertical said no to a few 12 volume series (think it was Kaji?) saying they were "too long" so at 16 volumes Chihayafuru probably counts as too long for them. Guess we should keep hoping for more bilingual volumes then? (or that Viz's Sig Ikki line picks it up, the only other close thing I can think of for a josei series)

^^ I don't get Vertical & that poll. If they don't want long series like they've said & Chihayafuru is over the 12 volume limit that they mentioned on Twitter, then why did they put Chihayayfuru on their Facebook poll in the first place? That's just toying with us.

Hm, this discussion about Vertical and the possible licensing of the Chihayafuru really ought to be in the manga thread, shouldn't it?

Users can add their own suggestions, so Vertical may not've included it as an option. On the bright side, they're owned by Kodansha, so they can always pass the results on to their corporate masters and hope the American branch picks it up.

Making this on-topic: Even assuming the new season is another 25 episodes, that'll only get us caught up to where the manga is now. From what I've read the series is only about 2/3 of the way through, so if the manga doesn't get picked up in the US we better hope for an eventual third season.

Users added in all the suggestions, I was the second person to the page so I was the one who added in Princess Jellyfish. ^^

In any case I've forgotten, how many chapters/volumes did the first season cover? I think I've heard the manga is up to about 90 chapters now so I think there's enough for another 25 episodes at least.

Well now.
I didn't know vistors could add suggestions. That's disappointing to learn.

I think the US Kodansha branch might be the best bet to pick up the manga.

It would be great if those Bilingual editions were going to continue but it doesn't look like it. Don't these people want my money?

All that's left to confirm is that the second season has the same writing staff and they didn't suddenly swap out the writer for Okada or something crazy like that.

Mainichi says 2 cour, though I don't believe it's officially confirmed.
