The November issue of Futabasha's Comic High! magazine and the official website of the Kodomo no Jikan anime have announced on Wednesday that the Kodomo no Jikan Second Term sequel will be a three-volume video series. The new anime series will cover the elementary schoolgirl characters' time in fourth grade. The sixth volume of Kaworu Watashiya's original manga will ship in Japan on January 21 with a limited edition that bundles an all-new anime episode from Kodomo no Jikan Second Term. The bundled 25-minute episode will adapt the popular "Shiro-chan, Kuro-chan" story from the manga. The bundle will also include the opening and ending for the second anime series.
The actual video series will launch with its first 55-minute volume on February 20. The initial release will include credit-less opening and ending animation sequences, a collection of commercials, voice actresses' audio commentaries, a special "O-uta no Jikan" CD, an 8-page "Rin's Very Secret Diary," and a box illustrated by Watashiya. The remaining DVD volumes will ship every two months afterwards.
