Minami-ke OAD/OVA Due


Minami-ke is due to receive an OAD (an OVA bundled with the manga) next year, in what is becoming something of a notable trend.

The disc is set for a June 2009 release, bundled with the limited edition version of the sixth volume of the manga, for some ¥3,700.

Now the important part: production will be handled by Asread, the same esteemed company responsible for the much unloved Okawari second season, and also currently producing the third season.

Nothing, it seems, can now wrest this franchise from their grip…


Kodansha seems to be experiencing some success with, or at least is promoting aggressively, the OAD (Original Animation Disc) format, though fans seem ambivalent or hostile to the tactic, not that this apparently impacts sales.

Negima, To Love-Ru, Zetsubou Sensei, Kiss×sis, the list goes on. The OAD seems to be here to stay.

    Okawari started out pretty badly, but by the end of the series they'd really gotten into the swing of it. I still prefer Dome's art style though.

    I loved Okawari, even if it was a different style and non-canon, man the opening and they did some great drama there.

    Anyway the DVD Betsubara (Second Stomach) was fansubbed by Ayako, they did Okaeri and teamed up with Sae to do Okawari before that. I watched the first season on DVD version from Saizen+A-E so not sure if they did that. Good group, great series.

    Aslead secretly hates Minami-ke, and has been plotting its demise through mediocre episodes.

    I fully expect season three to be devoid of Hosaka, and more emo anime original cast characters.

    I'd rather Minami-ke just die off than stay in Aslead's hands. But I do like this OAD trend. Pack-ins always make me feel better about buying my manga.
