Oh this series. I almost forgot about it since its anime debut in 2013. Wonder what kind of events will happen in the spinoff.

Didn't realise that Kotoura-san was licensed. Though, as it is digital, I really shouldn't be surprised.

I loved this show. Melodramatic, with a soft underbelly, and cautiously optimistic. I wonder if we will ever get a stateside release, or one to our friends in Australia? I'll be really excited in either case. I haven't read the manga yet. Very nice to know it has been licensed, and hopefully we'll get this spinoff too...although if sales were not good for the original...bummer.

I think you say that in every Kotoura-san manga thread! Very Happy It's been licensed, digitally-only, for a while.

Anybody who reads the manga know if it really expands on the anime? I feel like this is one of those series where the anime improved on the source and made a full story out of a 4-koma.

Kotoura-san is definitely a manga/anime I'd buy if only it got a physical release.

Anyway, not directly related to the news, but the official Kotoura-san Twitter account just retweeted this tweet with a giant 2D version of Haruka Kotoura herself rendered in a Minecraft cityscape and I thought it was nifty.

Laughing Really? I'm unsure if I've posted on another Kotoura-san thread. I do know that I comment on manga that are digital only, wanting them to be released in print.

And, this week, one such wish was granted. With Seven Seas grabbing Ichigo Takano's Orange. Laughing

To be fair, I've been asking the same "is the manga different from the anime?" question in just about every thread, too.

Ha! Well, what I said was slightly different. And, it still stands. No idea how the manga ended, due to it being only available digitally. Razz

Just letting you know while I am unaware who holds the license in australia the series is up on aussie netflix. which given we only have around a dozen anime on the thing is a bloody miracle in itself hope that helps
