I'm sorry, but I've been waiting on this OVA like a good little boy, and you know what? Disappointment, not even a kiss!
I'm waiting for someone to make subs for the volume 9 manga, maybe I'll get something then.

I'm not sure if they're going for another season, considering that they didn't really cover a lot of the manga in the episodes they had here.

One thing I am very certain about though..
This remains one of my most favorite ones though.

Makes my heart pound lots.


(Not that I was expecting a kiss, but imagine what would happen if they kissed.. explosions!)

Regarding a second season, if you view the last page of Nazokanojo's official thread, you'll see that it was originally planned as a 13-episode series alone. This might indicate that we'll be taking a Kaminomi route and only see OVAs or OADs (OVAs packaged with manga volumes) until the director and creators of the series can wrangle enough influence to power in ideas about a follow-up season. Considering that most series must have lots of ratings when aired, and then coincide with good DVD/BD sales along with their manga counterparts, this might be a gamble. At any rate, just like Kaminomi, I really hope that something gives and the project is green-lighted beyond OAD releases.

As for your disappointment...not even the YUKATA element helped? I thought it was a refreshing side-story, honestly.

My amazon.co.jp order with volume nine and the OVA is waiting for something else before it ships but I have eight. You've read eight, right?



I also hope for more anime but love the manga which I read in Japanese.

They have more than enough material for a second season. I really hope they do one.

Birdie the Mighty EVOLUTION 12 ships tomorrow with Nazo no Kanojo X 9 so I will see if there is more. I considered buying the last six months of Afternoon magazine to get ahead but they each cost more than a tankobon so I decided not to spend ¥4000... I will wait for volume 10 or i will wait until I need filler in an order (I refuse to pay more for shipping than product).

...

I missed the DHL guy on Friday so I had to wait all the way until today after the long Labor Day Weekend... but at last it arrived today. Filled out the darned form so they'll just leave it next time.

The episode was fun, I enjoyed it on my computer as the region is wrong for my regular DVD player. I am a crazy collector I guess, I saw that the regular edition of #9 had a different cover than the one included with the DVD so I got both... As you can see from the stripe on the regular volume nine there is a slight spoiler, Nazo no Kanojo Y !!! I quickly read number nine, will do a more thorough read later but won't spoil anything other than showing the cover:



It has a postcard inside too.



Got the 'last' Birdy the Mighty EVOLUTION 12 and Sasamoto Yuichi's the Astro Pilot #1 light novel as well. From the stripe it looks like there is an epilogue for Birdy the Mighty EVOLUTION volume 13 coming out on September 27... argh... may need to order again.

If there had been a kiss in the OVA, you could entirely forget any possibility of a 2nd season. As soon as there is an honest to goodness kiss, the story is over. (My own personal theory is that, with the way saliva exchange works with these two, direct, simultaneous, mutual saliva exchange will lead directly to unbridled passion and then the event that Urabe mentioned in the first episode. Just too much emotional/hormonal fireworks to be contained by their youthful bodies... LOL!)

I absolutely loved the OVA. It was the first real "anime only" story the director has done. It had some elements and banter from one of the manga chapters, but the story line was completely different, with only the lack of underwear under the yukata and some of the discussion that Tsubaki had with his sister in common with the manga. (The picture of his sister was more explicit in the anime than the manga, BTW. The manga didn't show even side-breast, just the backside.)
