Ok, I chose the wrong choice of words. I meant first, not original. Was more implying that this isn't a second season, but rather a spin-ff. Unless somehow Kana magcally reversed the aging process.

o.o... i like the new style :3 i couldnt stand the eyes in the first season.. when they did close ups it looked like 80s animation on those eyes or something like that.. maybe im the only one that got the feel of the 80s? dunno. perhaps early 90s?

Odd indeed. I see your arguments, but they don't really seem convincing. People who consider the first season a failure will rather watch something different than a variation on a theme. Others will leave because they feel it's not "their" Minami-ke anymore. Of course, yet others will stay and say everything is OK as long as it's more Minami-ke but they would of course also have watched simply more of the same. It's probably better for your buisness to air 13 episodes, then count your Yen and air another season 6-12 months later if the first one was a success, as it is done more and more nowadays.

I'm really torn here. This show has potential but anime of the "alternative setting" kind never did it for me if I knew the original (of "first instance" if that sounds more neutral).

It sort of takes something away from Hosaka's "Papa" gags when the Kana and Chiaki in his dreams actually look the same age as they do in Okawari.

Since the only things we really know about Okawari at the moment are the character designs -- and since they're so different -- it's only natural that we'll focus on those. But honestly, as much as I liked the designs from the first season, it wasn't the MAIN reason I watched. (I don't really think anyone was watching just for that.) I watched it for the humor and because I really liked the characters.

What would kill the show more than anything in my mind is if they changed the character's personalities. I want Kana to be her usual bakayarou self, Chiaki to be the little wise-ass, Mako-chan the ultimate trap, Touma the ultimate reverse trap, Hosaka the delusional stalker boy (ahem, I mean "active imagination guy"), etc etc. (Haruka could use a little more spunk IMO, but I digress...) As long as they get all that right, I don't mind a little change in visuals.

& going by the preview, it looks like we won't be having any of that.

I'm actually hoping that the asread guys would leave the manga materials alone as much as possible in Okawari. Just use the basic character designs and premises. Therefore, they can do whatever they want and i won't mind as much.

Let the Doumu guys handle the rest of the ongoing manga materials in another season in the future!

I dont read manga for this or any anime, so any comparisons to it are irrelevant. With that said, I hope the new season, or whatever it maybe consider, brings the same if not better entertainment that the first one gave me.

My interpretation for that situation is: "Fujioka, you lucky bastard!"

Just replace Sousuke for Hosaka-senpai. It would fit perfectly.

I hope Kana isn't the youngest of the three, because if it's so, that means they have to bump up/down the ages of all other chars in the series... Fujioka becomes younger, Touma and Mako-chan become older, etc., which severely breaks the perfect chemistry the first season has.

I think was just bogus information based on no actual facts.

yeah I don't understand how that got started, Kana is in no way younger than Chiaki the poster pic just shows Kana being her attention grabbing self and Chiaki sticking to her loving nee-sama. no worries they're still in their uniforms anyway

Although the more i think about it i wouldn't mind it if Kana was now younger maybe it will just encourage them to drop this okawari crap in the future and go with the first one and keep on the manga's track(also this would assure Okawari not dipping into the manga) and it would be interesting to see an older Chiaki who would be at an age to have potential love interests(although Kana wouldn't and fujioka and her were one of my favorite parts) whatever you just have to look at this show in a whole new light and if they do it right we could still see some pretty sweet possibilites and scenarios which they couldn't make in the original

Damn, I actually liked the original character designs.

Judging from the preview at the end of episode 13, it really doesn't seem like Kana is younger than Chiaki. If anything Chiaki looks older but Kana looks like she's still around the same age. How did this rumor start?

I think someone here mentioned that Kana looks younger in this installment of minami-ke, and how Chiaki looks older, and suddenly some people just deceided Kana is now the youngest now. You know how people on boards are, they tend to read fragments, accept only things they like, spread rumours as confirmed news aso.
However, in the manga both Kana and Chiaki do look actually older than in the both anime, but that is just the style of the artists.
