Random Musings – Da Capo II Anime And Other News

  • As I’m sure many of you have already heard, the big news for today is that Da Capo II is getting an anime. In an interview published in the June edition of Comptiq (the same magazine that Lucky Star is serialized in and pimps every week), producer tororo stated among other things that he wanted the anime to be as long as possible. There’s no set air-date yet, and I haven’t paid much attention to the game since it came out about a year ago, but I’m interested in seeing how this turns out.
  • In other upcoming anime news, Kamen no Maid Guy is also getting an anime, but I suspect that most people aren’t familiar with this series. I was first introduced to the manga almost two years ago when Dom wrote about it over at MegaTokyo. To use his description, it’s “the heartwarming story of a maid-loving rich old man, his almost-of-age granddaughter Naeka, and the musclebound, shark-toothed, mask-wearing freak of a maid he assigns to protect her until her 18th birthday.” It’s very fun to read, and I hope it translates well into anime form.
  • For those of you who are watching sola, it was announced on the official production blog that the show is going to be 15 episodes total, two of which will be DVD-exclusive. The one that is to be included with DVD 4 (on sale September 25th) is going to be “packed with the charms of the characters of sola,” but they are keeping secret about the one to be included with the final DVD 5 (on sale October 26th).
  • In seiyuu news, it seems that popular voice actress Horie Yui will be appearing on HEY!HEY!HEY! MUSIC CHAMP soon. Her appearance is being filmed this Thursday, so it might air next Monday. I mention this mainly because many of you may remember how Hirano Aya generated a lot of buzz last year from appearing on the same show.

      YESSS!!!! I was waiting for this to happen SO MUCH! I always said “I hope they do a Da Capo II anime soon enough” and what do you know? DCII. YES I JUST can’t wait for this!

      da capo was so terrible i dont get how they decided to make da capo 2. Da capo season 2 was so terrible i just wanted to tear my eyes out.

      hopefully, da capo 2 wont be that crappy.

    • May 8, 2007 at 8:47 pmGil

      Haven’t played that game, I heard its “many” years after the first Da Capo.

    • May 8, 2007 at 8:55 pmSniper

      Da Capo II should be very interesting.

    • May 8, 2007 at 8:56 pmbuh

      I dislike Megatokyo and Dom. Although I admit some of the manga choices he finds are good if not obscure.

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:00 pmperson

      awww…sola is so good. i hope when the 2 other eps will be posted online when they come out

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:01 pmLikkun

      So Horie Yui made on HEY!HEY!HEY! now? I’ll have to check it out next week to see what happens. I can only imagine what kind of things can happen when she’s there.

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:17 pmkiryuu

      I enjoyed the original Da Capo.. found the second season to be meh. maybe Da Capo II will be interesting again.

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:17 pmkiryuu

      and what’s with all of these DVD-only extra episodes lately?? -.-’

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:51 pmGStrike-

      isn’t there a DC 2 series already? or is it DC 1 but season 2?

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:51 pmShin

      Da Capo first season was alright, but the second season was a disaster for me. I hope Da Capo II is good, and I have high hopes for it.

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:52 pmAzureus

      i wonder how long they’re going to reproduce the Da Capo,

      like the name
      this series still return to begin and loop never end!

    • May 8, 2007 at 9:54 pmShiro

      Being a huge fan of the Da Capo franchise, i can’t wait for this to happen. Also, it brings a smile to my face knowing it was going to happen ever since the game was announced time ago. :3

    • May 8, 2007 at 10:16 pmtyper

      Bah, no news on Code Geass ;(

    • May 8, 2007 at 10:16 pmAnza

      *feels like stabbing many things* Da Capo 2 ANIME!? The second season was a cruel joke to anyone who like Kotori and the whole series was freaking LAUGHABLE unless you loved Nemu (WHO ANNOYED THE LIVING HELL OUT OF ME) UGH Why must I be reminded of that horrible tragic storyline, poor Kotori ;_;

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:11 amAvalon

      Da Capo 2 hm.. it might be interesting.

      Da capo 1 was decent

      Da Capo 2 was a piece of crap it was going good till it fucks up by bringing that sister back.

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:13 amTenkaichi

      Argh on the DVD exclusives. What the hell? >_

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:15 amAsrialys

      Da Capo II takes place 50 years after the events of Da Capo I believe. I think whatever descendants there are of the Da Capo characters are the grandchildren.

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:39 amMooMooCow

      Da Capo was pretty good. I can’t say the same about the second season though. The flat faces and the focus on a completely new main character really killed the series for me.

      I wonder who’s going to Yoshiyuki.

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:41 amhk the cat

      ya, i believe it 53 yrs later after Da Capo.

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:42 amWererat42

      Da Capo II? Heh, how much do you guys want to bet that Nanaka will fare no better than her ansestor? At least there’s two twins to pick from, but my money’s on Otome.

    • May 9, 2007 at 12:44 amA.N

      Da Capo 1 was good at least because of the nice char design. DCSS was so so. And I guess imouto always win.

      Boo with delayed/DVD episodes. These things really ruin the fun.

    • May 9, 2007 at 1:12 amthenightsshadow

      No comment. Sakura will probably set the record straight either way.

    • May 9, 2007 at 1:48 amKnowngni

      YAY!!!!!! cause this time is a chance to make up for all the upsets from DC and DCSS, or further piss off the fan community…

      This time I actually wouldnt mind the Sis-con relationship except it has to be with the older sister. OTOME FTW!!!

      sorry for a second post in a row but i just had to type this…
      i didnt think this up until after I commented already

      Looking back at how Da Capo Season 1 went and comparing it with DC II
      we might get a storyline like this….

      Spoiler if u really want to click it

      DCII well to those who have played the game would know that its 53 years after the events of DC series and as everyone should know it follows nemu’s ending thus we get otome asakura and yume asakura as the leads

      ARRGH! Sola’s final eps on DVD in Sept and Oct. Sigh… Save up the money now… :-) Thanks for the info, Omni!

    • May 9, 2007 at 10:22 amRasmiel

      Why are people comparing DCII with DCSS? SS was a crap sequel, yes, but only because it was merely a continuation story of Junichi and Nemu relationship. I’ve played DCII and I loved it. It’s a whole new cast (and surprisingly I don’t blatantly hate Yume like I did with Nemu) and a whole new story (nevermind that Nanaka takes her famous quotes after her grandmother). It’s absurd to assume DCII will be crap just because DCSS was.

      I’m personally looking forward to it. <3 Otome & Nanaka~

    • May 9, 2007 at 11:07 amKiri

      It will be interesting. All of Da Capo is very interesting to watch:), includes first session Da Capo and Da Capo Second Season

    • May 9, 2007 at 11:17 amdevilyne

      Sola is a pretty good anime for it to have only 13 episode with 2 DVD extras.

    • May 9, 2007 at 6:47 pmShadowrazoR

      IMO Yume is more likely to get Yoshiyuki, simply cause she’s pretty much Nemu Mk. II. And we all know how much Nemu owns the Da Capo series…

    • May 9, 2007 at 7:34 pmtensai_otaku

      Da Capo II : I am going to puke here( some words from my little brother :P )
      Horie Yui on HEY!HEY!HEY! MUSIC CHAMP : I love her but I am still thinking till now days that on her kendo special video( when she went to a dojo to try some teachings on kendo)
      THAT MASTER that try to teach her wanted to chop her head from her body….I BET HE WAS ANGRY WITH HER ON THAT OCASION…..he was so mad that she was laughing all the time when he was seriously teaching her that I am sure he fought:

      ” I AM GOING TO CHOP OFF THIS BITCH´S HEAD …JUST DO IT DAMM IT!!! ”
      :D :P

      Why waste the resources on another round of Da Crapo?

    • May 10, 2007 at 1:09 amrandomdude

      and the boringness continue
