Episode 6 of Minami-ke‘s much lamented third season features a rather interesting beach scene involving some mizugi groping action…

Below you see the groping in greater detail:

Minami-dora! Minami-ke’s Kana Cameos in Toradora?


Is the character pictured here in episode 18 of palmtop tiger anime Toradora in fact Kana Minami of baka-yarou anime Minami-ke? To many she bears a striking resemblance, though she may be just a generic character all the same.

    She does look a lot like Kana, but I think its just a look a like. I've also seen the hairstyle used in many anime series. But I feel that what confirms that it is not... More

  • Maximatum99 commented on May 9, 2009 15:01

    It's Kana since she energetically runs in that scene (reviewed the episode saved on PC) and her hair style is the exactly the same except for the color. Kinda obvious! But not a big deal.... More

Minami-ke Okaeri OP & ED Debut on Oricon Top 10


The Minami-ke Okaeri OP and ED songs, Keikenchi Soku Joujou  and Zettai Karafuru Sengen debuted today, placing 8# and 10# respectively on the Oricon Daily Music charts.

The appearance of anison (anime songs) on the music charts is not that uncommon, but as both singles are sung by the Minami trio‘s seiyuu and previously only heard on the three episodes broadcast so far, it follows that the CD’s popularity is made up nearly entirely by fans of the show.

You can hear both songs below:

    They're catchy and much better than Okawari's, but they're basically copy-pasted from the S1 themes (and not just the "experience" and "color" leitmotifs). Still, I like Zettai Colorful Sengen better than Colorful Days.... More

Minami-ke Okaeri Drawing Fail


Although the response to baka yarou anime Minami-ke Okaeri’s first episode was cautiously optimistic, despite a disastrous blunder, nobody can help but notice the less than first rate animation and character design, or Asread quality as it has come to be known. Merciless 2ch gathers the oddest above.

The latest series of apprehensively awaited baka-yarou anime Minami-ke, Minami-ke Okaeri, has arrived, and episode one is already attracting harsh censure for its sloppy production values, with an especially major error being rapidly detected by the critical engine that is 2ch.

You can see the glaring error which has so outraged fans below:

Fans Despair of Minami-ke Okaeri: Comparison


The imminent third season of troubled baka-yarou anime Minami-ke, Minami-ke Okaeri, has been unveiled in modest detail with the release of a brief trailer, allowing a fair comparison between the three seasons.

Minami-ke fans are seemingly split between those who consider the new series to represent a complete collapse in design quality, and those who think it compares well with Okawari. We need not consider the other possible opinion, vanishingly rare as it is.

You can evaluate it yourself below:

    Also, Haruka in the third season actually shows other emotion besides the selfless kind self that is pretty much dominant (or more like all the time) in the second season. I actually seen Haruka show... More

  • Renigami commented on April 20, 2009 05:31

    Animation and image wise, I think it got worse. The second season looks way too like the stereotypical drama-anime. However, the style of the art is more like the first season (without the subtile shading... More

Santake – A Minamike Christmas

The Minami family gather in Yuletide spirit, fully attied in Santa-san apparel, and most appealing they are. Sadly we have been denied the sought after continuation of the original series, perhaps the most desired Minami-ke Christmas present, but this apparently cannot be helped.

By the same artist as Santa-Nagi-sama.

Hokusen – Feel Myself

Hokusen – Feel Myself

An anon was kind enough to introduce me to the superb 3D CG artist whose works we saw when looking at the state of 3D Haruhi games; going by the name of 北仙 / Hokusen, with his site/circle called “Feel Myself”, he possesses notable skill in rendering anime characters in 3D, and his works are well worth a look, both for their artistic merits, and as a sign of things to come.

You’ll also notice he has a singular predilection for creating interesting Haruhi images…

I have placed these fine images on the Channel, where he now has a tag; please feel free to help tagging them.

Minami-ke 3rd Season to be Reformed Okawari?

Minamike 3rd Season to be Reformed Okawari?

Minami-ke fans everywhere are in a state of grave despair with the news that the recently announced third season of Minami-ke is set to be a continuation of the oft reviled second series, Okawari, with the same producers, which was not previously clear.

However, it also seems that parts of the production will be going back to the original producers, so there may yet be hope for Okawari detractors.
