Yozakura Quartet Manga Gets 3rd Original Anime DVD
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese publisher Kodansha announced on Friday that a third 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 11th manga volume on September 9. It will include the third 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 two anime DVDs are returning for the third DVD. As they did for the second DVD, Manabu Ishikawa (Mononoke, Kūchū Buranko, Love Hina) is writing the script, and Kiyotaka Suzuki (Kūchū Buranko) is storyboarding.
The second Yozakura Quartet ~Hoshi no Umi~ episode is shipping on a DVD with the 10th manga volume on Friday. Section23 Films shipped the complete DVD collection for the Yozakura Quartet television anime series in North America last year, and Del Rey Manga shipped the fifth manga volume in 2009.
