I hope it's just an OVA placed several years later, because I like where the series ended.

It is highly probable that this is an OVA or a movie, but I'd love it if it was a series. I really hate the vagueness of these announcements. The first one told us there would be a new "visual work" - now we know it will be anime. I guess it will take a third announcement to tell us what format. Then a fourth to let us know what proximate time period it will be released. Oi. Rolling Eyes

Did you forget episode three? Cause I sure didn't.

I will admit that I'm amazed - and impressed - that the rest of the series did so well even after being decapitated like that. Sort of reminds me about that chicken which lived headless for like two years. Yes, that's about the overall quality of Hanasaku Iroha's writing; as good as a headless chicken. Well, worse actually; it was the truly superb efforts from the animation and art departments that ended up saving the show, not anything Okada did.

Same here. A direct continuation of the series would kill anything we got out of the last episode. All I want is one last episode that shows everyone holding true to their promise and let it end there for good. Not everything needs to be a franchise, Japan used to be good at that, but these days not so much.

OH PLEASE episode 3 was a one off case. I think they actually could have enough material for 12 more episodes, just with them taking care of unfinished business just like honey and clover (yes I went there) because the writing for the show is actually really good. ohna would be annoying under most writers, and the wedding episodes are amazing examples of slice of life drama.

How 'bout this. Chop your head off with a hacksaw, then - assuming you survive the blood loss - tell me that losing your head was a one off case which doesn't matter in the long run. (Well, it's certainly not going to happen twice, but you know what I mean.) 'Cause that is how atrocious episode three was. I mean, the writing in the first two episodes was okay, and the writing in the latter episodes was also alright (generally speaking). But episode three is like a black hole of fail which was so powerful that the series had to really struggle to get over the finish line with a positive rating.

You seem to feel really strongly about this. I guess I have to watch episode 3 again because It didn't bother me enough for me to remember it. However, saying it had to struggle to get over the finish line with a positive rating? A positive rating in your own books maybe. Last I checked it did very well in Japan the entire run it had...which is why they're making more. If it had to "Struggle" they'd give up on it.

Few of episodes near to beginning of the show were indeed weak, and one of them was especially atrocious. I had to stop viewing this show and could not get myself to watch it further even though these who survived say that the rest of the show was much better.

I mean, the downfall was so critical loss taste and storytelling that you almost feel insulted and cheated by the authors. It was striking how low authors think of their readers/viewers. The show was so cheap on that point.

My only wish with this new anime is that they FINALLY have Minko and Ohana make up and be friends!

Episode three was indeed a disappointment and really didn't need to be there, but as a whole I really enjoyed the series. I'm looking forward to more, if only because Ohana was one of the best "genki" girls I've seen in a long time.

I REALLY hope it is full 13 or 26 episode series. I don't want just an OVA, Special, or a Movie. Well I would like a movie but I want a new series first.

Re-establishing Kissisuo from scratch could easily provide the basis for a 26 episode series. If the character development and graphics are as good as the first series, it'll be another treat.
