Comment on Minami-ke “4th” Season Announced by Sasazuka:

Avatar of Sasazuka

It’d be lovely if Studio Daume could return to the franchise, but it seems that most of their talent has fled elsewhere. Daume hasn’t really done anything notable since the two ICHIGO MASHIMARO OVA series or whatever that SHIKI thing is.

I’m just hoping Masahiko Ohta, from the first season, returns as director, perhaps with Studio Dogakobo doing the animation (they also made Ohta’s most recent series, YURU YURI). Or Studio Bridge, where Ohta directed MITSUDOMOE.

    Doesn’t it seem more and more like the real story of KUMAMIKO is “village elders want to exploit Machi’s cuteness to promote tourism” (because there’s absolutely nothing else exceptional about Kumade village that might bring in the tourists other than the talking bears)?

  • Kuma Miko Bears Much Discovery:
    Sankaku just “censored” Machi blowing into that bamboo pipe as a joke, check the actual still image screencaps and even the Omake gifs for the uncensored version. https://images.sankakucomplex.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/KumaMiko-Episode7-2.jpg https://images.sankakucomplex.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/KumaMiko-Episode7-Omake-4.gif

    Correction: it’s Olympus, not Nikon, that has the “Tough” brand for its durable & waterproof cameras.

    https://images.sankakucomplex.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/KumaMiko-Episode7-61.jpg That looks like a 1990s digital camera, although I suppose it could be like one of those Nikon “Tough” cameras that forgo basic features like a zoom lens in order to be about as indestructible as a digital camera can possibly be. In other words, perfect for a klutz like Machi.

  • Top 20 Anime Mothers:
    I know it’s too early for her to make any lists, but Nana Kuramoto from FLYING WITCH is an excellent addition to the anime mother pantheon. While lot of anime moms would be oblivious to or shocked by magical goings-on, Nana is not only unperterbed by it and accepting of it, she seems to have some degree of familiarity with it, seemingly having many witches in her extended family.
