Okay, I haven't seen anyone posting the Cobalt Feb 2006 magazine's announcement. So Here is one of the pages.



Still no release date, but they will release '1st season and Haru TV series' DVD.
I assume that it is a compilation DVD (recap?).

So is the 1st season and Haru TV series DVD what we assumed would be a 3rd season OAV, or is a 3rd season OAV still a go?

Nope, the 3rd season OAV is something else. It's still a go.

Mangaoh have listed the first recap DVD, out 2006-03-24. Looks like there are going to be three, one for each Rose, released bimonthly and featuring new(?) commentary plus a music clip from the corresponding image album.

I finally got my copy of that Cobalt issue yesterday - judging by the text "2006年秋発売決定" on the first page (218KB), I guess we're looking at an Autumn release? If the recaps are coming out March, May and July then a September-ish date for the OVA would seem to fit.

What exactly would these recap DVDs contain? It would be self-defeating to release those when the series themselves are already out.

The summary dvds are meant as a cheaper alternative to buying the entire series.

If the release of the OVA catches the attention of someone who isn't a fan, the summary dvds allow them a quick and comparatively cheapier way to get into the series when they otherwise might skip the OVAs because they are the third series and most people won't watch a series that far in without seeing the first series.

It creates interest in the upcoming OVA and it widens the potential number of buyers of the OVA.

So the summary dvds aren't really aimed at people who have already seen the series. They are aimed at people who are vaguely familar with the series but never got into it. The summaries provide a easily accessible entry point into the series that might attract fans more than having them buy the entirety of the series in dvds.

Romance Rumor

I heard a rumor that the OAV centers more around the romance between Yumi and Sachiko.

Think it might be true?

romance between Yumi and Sachiko? Yes, you just have to wait for a million years for that to happen.

No, really, If this is true, I will definitely buy it.

Yes.

Although, I suppose it is possible she has decided that Yumi is so wonderful that she switched her preferences but there hasn't been any reason given to believe that.

As things are, Shimako and Noriko and Rei and Yoshino are far closer to falling in love than Sachiko and Yumi.

I wouldn't expect it to happen though.

I would like a more romantic story between Sachiko and Yumi but I think it's useless to think of it because Sachiko MAYBE doesn't have this feeling towards Yumi. And moreover, I think Sachiko restricts the Yumi's "heats". I can't express my thought in english (i'm french) but Sachiko and Yumi don't have the same relation as Noriko and Shimako have. But, Yumi loves Sachiko. And Sachiko is terribly difficult to understand. In the anime, Sachiko dislike the men (father, etc) ... but we don't have the proof that she loves the women.

I sincerely hope for a love story between them two. I can dream ;-)

Erica Friedman has been summarizing the novels on her blog Okazu. She says that in the novels Sachiko always wants to touch, holds hands with and hug Yumi, and of course Yumi likes this.

I've read elsewhere that Sachiko is always caressing and cuddling Yumi and that this is never shown in the anime, which portrays Sachiko as a good deal colder than she is in the novels.

We do know from the books that Sachiko really, really hates men, but whether or not she is physically attracted to men is another question. She did formerly have somewhat of a crush on her fiancé Kashiwagi, but he's into boys so that’s out.

I personally think overall Sachiko is a kind, but somewhat repressed character. She is indeed head over heels in love with Yumi both platonically and romantically, but perhaps not sexually.
