Man...i truly like this series having finished both seasons now. Very entertaining and season 3 would be a must watch for me if one is made. One funny thing about this series though is that they ALWAYS have their mouth wide open in tense situations lmao.

I LOVE this show! I can't help but love how well fleshed out all the characters are...and I always feel a tiny bit bad for Taichi...
I hope any further seasons delves a bit more into a little of the romance side of this show now that Arata is back in the picture.

Also, thanks for the update on the OVA. I'm still hoping it's different content from the manga (meaning either original content or middle school stuff) because I don't want Season 3 delayed further than it is by having content already taken.

Well, if history repeats itself the OVA will be anime original. Kodansha manga toss in OVAs tend to go that way. Mysterious Girlfriend X used some elements but was essentially original. Say I Love You last week was totally original though based on the story. My Little Monster will be the side story with the characters as Edo period comedy using audio from an earlier drama CD. So I expect that the Chihayafuru OVA will be original or based upon side material too, perhaps an animated version of the bonus drama CDs from season one with a version of the bamboo cutter's daughter.

I am sure they already did the audio for it while the cast did season two, unless they use the drama CD material. Was planned in advance surely.

I don't think it will be a middle school flashback. That would surprise me. They would need more than one episode for that.

Okay that's actually a relief I don't mind (and totally look forward to) original content. (similar to how Usagi drop did 5 minute OVA's with each of the Bluray's). Hopefully the one for Chihaya will be longer than 5 minutes.. LOL

I expect it will be one episode in length, again as usual for Kodansha. I hope it comes with some bonus artwork too, like the recent Sukitte OAD:

I think the chance of Crunchyroll showing it is likely 0% but you don't _have_ to download it... you can buy it like me... then you get the artwork and volume 22 of Chihayafuru manga! Still orderable here if anyone is interested:

Sorry but I can't buy something I just don't understand. If it had subs I might have considered it. I do hope someone licenses this.. I reaaaaaally want it.

Won't have subs so you will need to fly your jolly roger I guess...

I am kind of shocked that Kodansha USA hasn't licensed the manga at least as it seems very popular. With their recent licensing run getting Say I Love You and My Little Monster I was really surprised that Chihayafuru wasn't included as they have similar sales. Perhaps the josei genre scared them off? Too bad.

For the discs... does anyone ever license VAP stuff? Viz and Funimation rarely. Would be tough to dub.

VAP? Sorry unfamiliar with the term. Btw, this series honestly would be best to be left to just sub. The poems alone will be a nightmare to try to translate and "work" in dub..

VAP is the company that handles Chihayafuru discs in Japan. I was trying to remember if any of their shows have been released here:
http://vap.co.jp/category/1360308042406/
NTV is the distribution company listed too so I am not sure, perhaps I should be thinking of NTV instead. At any rate, if anyone was going to pick up Chihayafuru 1 or 2 for North American disc releases I think they would have announced it already

Agreed sadly. I figured if anyone was going to do it then it would have been NISA since they don't dub anything and get niche shows (like Ano Hana and Usagi Drop). Maybe they are waiting until the series ends? I don't see Funimation picking this up. They only want jiggly shows lately and this actually have depth :p

Yeah, I was surprised that Funimation picked up Brothers Conflict, an Otome game reverse harem adaptation with bishounen idol and kiss fanservice and some BL undertones and cross dressers and no jiggling at all. I think it was a package deal with a jiggle show, must have been LOL

Same with Red Data Girl last season, must have been a package? Hmm.

8 weeks to Chihayafuru OAD. But no Chihaya in the next BE LOVE so I may go into withdrawal... Will have to finish the light novels or something!

Ugh.. so the mangaka is taking a break or something? I mean they have a right.. just painful for us waiting for her to keep going so we can get an anime.. LOL

Keep us posted if you hear an inkling of the content for the .. er.. OAD (not sure if that's a different OVA?)

I had actually never heard of OADs either, and figured hpulley just made a typo, lol, but just in case, I looked it up (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Original_video_animation) and there is such a thing as OADs, LOL. Learn something new everyday. Anyway, here's a short snippet of it:

"Starting in summer 2008 the term OAD (original animation DVD) began to refer to DVD releases published bundled with their source material manga."
