Umimachi Diary would be a nice choice as well -- fairly popular, and critically acclaimed. I could see it being done by the same team as Usagi Drops.

I read somewhere that Yoshida (the author) mentioned there has been talks of an adaptation. Not sure if animation or live-action though.

I'm a bit more biased however with Yoshida's Kisshou Tennyo, though that one's really old. I feel older women (who may or may not watch anime) which was the original target market for noitamina anyway would eat this up.

Those women are the target audience for Otona Joshi no Anime Time. Any indications how well that's doing? I haven't traced the origins of every noitaminA series, but other than Natsuyuki Rendezvous, and maybe Sakamichi no Apollon, I don't see many shows I would consider "josei" over the past few seasons.

About a quarter of noitaminA productions have been anime originals. Though it is riskier to produce an original show than an adaptation, noitaminA has done pretty well of late with series like Psycho-Pass and Tsuritama. Tsuritama averaged about 3,500 units per volume, while Psycho-Pass has averaged just under 9,000. Most of the latter were the more profitable Blu-rays as well. Personally I prefer original works because they usually have more conclusive endings and often tighter writing as well. A show like Tsuritama that was designed to begin and end in twelve episodes may often compare favorably to a similar-length adaptation of an ongoing story.

The 2nd NoitaminA show this summer is a re-airing of AnoHana

I guess that gives me a excuse to rewatch Anohana: The Flower We Saw that Day.

I'll see if I can get a rewatch thread in the AnoHana forum. If you live in the U.S or Canada and are a Crunchyroll Premium Member(only the first 4 episodes are ad-supported), you can see all of that series there:

At least we get two original series in the fall, huh?

Ah. I had wondered if the late announcement meant one of the shows would be a repeat.
I guess as there's a movie coming out it'll be publicity for that.

Had been meaning to rewatch the show anyway!
