Damn, it looks like Kurashima Tomoyasu isn't the character designer for this series now. This was his first major mainstream anime he was the character designer and chief animation director for in a long time, and he made a lot of very nice official art for the series. Was it because he asked for too much money after having done a very nice job?

It saddens me that his character designs won't be used for IS anymore . . .

Hmm.. I wonder why they didn't go with the new art style.

I would guess the change is too drastic?

I'd suspect they had already worked on the "second season" before the novel went on indef-hiatus. Wonder how they'll "remake" it. Most remakes are OVAs or movies. I don't really mind the new art cause I know the IS would look nice. I just want to see the new character adaptions come to light.

I wonder how exactly they plan to retcon away Houki and Ichika being a sorta-couple at the end of the first season and the OVA. He did blatantly try to kiss her.

During the IS All Night Event, Hiyocchi said that the airing date for IS 2 wasn't announced. Both the Author and Director were also present at the function.

I take it that's Hiyocchi in the centre, and Kana Hanazawa on the far right. I don't recognize the others, though; can anyone help me with this?

I'm still a little miffed that Tomoyasu Kurashima isn't the character designer for this series anymore; I was very much looking forward to seeing his rendition of Tatenashi Sarashiki in animation. Any word on who Sarashiki is going to be voiced by?

In the middle of the the teaser trailer, you can hear a high pitched teasing voice, which I guess is going to be Tatenashi's VA. Wouldn't surprise me if they got the VA of that Kanade girl from Mayo Chiki; would fit really well.

Eri Kitamura is a good choice for her although I personally would have gone with someone like Shizuka Itou, Nazuka Kaori , or Ayako Kawasumi for Tatenashi's VA

We need a VA who can project the perfect blend of being both nice and helpful when it counts to a gadfly tease in normal situations.

I think the three I named fulfill those requirements.

I would prefer Shizuka Itou myself. She was one of the stars in Sky Girls and only got a one-episode role in its spiritual successor Strike Witches. It'd be great if she got to voice Tatenashi in this latest "mecha musume" anime, especially since she has had a lot of experience voicing student president roles, as well as making her voice flirtatious and seductive (I hear she hits on Ichika in the LN), such as her role as Shinra Kuonji in KimiAru.

Still, the "throwaway line" in the PV doesn't sound like Itou to me, much as she'd be well-suited for the role.

Shizuka Itou played a girl named Kousaka Mayuki in the Da Capo II anime. That would probably be a perfect fit and tone for her.

haruka tomatsu for me, because she should be paired with Kana Hanazawa *shot*

For Kanzashi, Minami Kuriyabashi does well for shy characters.

How about Mamiko Noto for Kanzashi?

Listen to her role as Sadako from Kimi ni Todoke.

A fan of Kannagi, are you? That show had two of its lead characters voiced by Haruka Tomatsu and Kana Hanazawa.

If Minami Kuribayashi is still singing the opening theme for the second IS series, it would be interesting to hear her voice this character. She'd probably channel her breakout role, Haruka Suzumiya (aka totallynotSakuraKinomotofromCardCaptorSakura) from KimiNozo.
