EDIT: 4th season officially confirmed! No details on studio or director yet.
Now this is exciting – the long-rumored announcement of a new anime adaptation of Minami-ke looks like it was true. Not much detail in this snippet slipped into a character song bundled with the manga, but “I hope that this will on television” has a nice ring to it! It predates my time as a blogger, but I was a big fan of Minami-ke from the very beginning – the second and third seasons were inconsistent but way better than many would have you believe, and this first was pure genius. Here’s hoping they bring back director Ohta Masahiko, who directed the first season (as well as Mitsudomoe, among other series). As you know, “Needs more Mako-chan.”
