Nope, Shidou was a person whose parents left him for good. Later he got adopted into other family, Itsuka family where Kotori belongs to.

I guess her blood related sister, was adopted by other family, the Takamiya. Or maybe she wasn't adopted and her last name is her original family name.

Your hypothesis is still pretty off path.

Why must series like this be only 13 episodes? This anime series that needs more than that *Sigh* Or at least13 more episodes for the second season, think will get it?

Series like these are often short like this because they need to give the base material time to keep ahead. There are currently only 7 volumes out, and a 24-episode series alone would blow through all 7 easily.

A second season depends largely on how good the BD/DVD sales are. The companies behind DAL are certainly preparing for high sales, between all the promotion for the anime, merchandise, and the PS3 game.

Very rarely do I say that I really don't like character's voice...but I really did not like Kurumi's voice for some reason.

Well the only other possibility would have been to give her a high-pitched, cutesy voice, and that would clash pretty heavily with her whole
Spoiler:


I'm glad they didn't give her a cutesy voice; instead of trying to sell off on her moe factor (and she's already dang hawt), they're keeping the focus on her

which is much more fit by her deeper ojou-sama voice.

Ep 6: It was decent, though Yoshino's cuteness struck me again.
Too bad the Hot spring thing never really happened.

They even had a date a live museum in akihabara. This series is probably a lot more popular than we think, at least with the light novels.

I'm not asking for a cutesy voice...just felt that this voice and performance didn't feel quite right is all. I don't know much about voice acting or VAs, I usually accept most choices but this one felt strange, like it didn't quite fit most of the time and the performance was a bit lackluster.

It might be just me though.

Personally I thought Asami Sanada did a great job. 90% of the episode she was using a slow, calm tone, and that's exactly what the ojou-sama voice is supposed to be in Japanese culture. When we get to
Spoiler:
, she cranked up the tension and nailed it.

By the way, does anybody know what the Newtype characer popularity polls were in the May release issue? I'm just curious since DAL was out for a month by the May release.
Though in another month Kurumi should be eligible for the June release issue.

Isn't about sounding cute.

Ist about making a clear contrast between her normal and psycho sides.

You can't exactly call that a "museum". I can testify it was basically not even half the floor of Akihabara Gamers building with basically very few stuff around. Some illustrations by Tsunako and few shots from the anime.
It is mainly driven to appeal people to pre order BD for the box set and buy the LN and manga volumes for Tsunako's sign card.

It is on the same caliber than promotional showoff for galge and stuff.

EDIT: I think it has been covered by some blogs already, but here are the pics I've taken.
The "museum" is approximately 20-30m˛ with the BD+clearfile on the center front (first pic), and the scripts and sketches on the center back (not taken as it was forbidden).
Pictures are basically taken from right front corner (starting with Tsunako's design) to the rear left corner (big character cardboard cut + popularity poll result).
Front left corner wasn't taken as it was LN + cashier zone and it was quite cluttered as there were few dozens of people all the time.

I can't tell; are you replying to me or Randrak42?

If me, than I'm definitely not for her sounding cute; her current voice is just perfect, and her VA nails the difference between a normal voice and her
Spoiler:
voice perfectly. You can definitely hear the contrast in that last scene.
