posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese publisher Kodansha has announced on Friday that a second original anime DVD has been green-lit for Suzuhito Yasuda's Yozakura Quartet manga. The new DVD will ship with the limited edition of the 10th manga volume on April 8, 2011. It will include the second Yozakura Quartet ~Hoshi no Umi~ episode and "bonus footage."
Director Ryoochimo Sawa, Tatsunoko Production/Purple Cow Studio Japan, the musical artists Unison Square Garden and Suemitsu & the Suemith, and most of the voice cast from the first anime DVD are returning for the second DVD. Manabu Ishikawa (Mononoke, Kūchū Buranko, Love Hina) is writing the script, and Kiyotaka Suzuki (Kūchū Buranko) is storyboarding.
The first Yozakura Quartet ~Hoshi no Umi~ episode is shipping on a DVD with the ninth manga volume on Friday. Section23 Films shipped the complete DVD collection for the Yozakura Quartet television anime series in North America in March, and Del Rey Manga shipped the fifth manga volume last year.
