The September issue of Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine will reportedly announce on August 2 that the anime adaptation of Peach-Pit's Shugo Chara! manga has been green-lit for a second year. The two manga artists who make up Peach-Pit have been drawing their take on the magical girl genre since the end of 2005, and director Kenji Yasuda and the Satelight animators have been producing the anime version since last fall. The manga won the Best Children's Manga honor in this year's Kodansha Manga Awards. Del Rey publishes the manga version in North America.
