Yozakura Quartet – Hana no Uta – 11

After 11 episodes Lila is finally here!! “Tane mo shikake mo gozaimasen” All dat crazy siscon yandere goodness.
It’s pretty cool how they showed some of the illustrations from the vol 13 limited edition calendar as OP cards. Thinking about why they made a new anime + OVA now always bring me to the conclusion that the manga may be ending soon (as in in the next 2 years). I gotta say this makes me sad though as this adaptation really made me remember how much I like it. That’s just random speculation from my part based on past experiences though, I have actually no idea how an anime adaptation of something gets decided etc.

Anticipating Yozakura Quartet – Hana no Uta –

This is the show I’m looking forward to the most next season. I’m a huge fan of Yozakura Quartet, fan enough to buy the volumes. It’s one of my favorite shonen recently, along with stuff like Bimbougami Ga (which just ended), or Shoukoku no Altair.

YQ Volume 1 GET!!

Yaaay finally got this!! Gonna try and buy all the other ones too to give Suzupin some of my money, even if I don’t have much myself but this is just too awesome.

At the bonus pages in the end, Yasuda Suzuhito says among others things that he got a lot of advice from friends, and one of them is Narita Ryohgo. It’s obvious they know each other since Suzupin draws the illustrations in Drr!! but it’s pretty cool that they’re friends. He also explains the reason why sometimes the chapters in the volumes aren’t in the same order as in the pre-publication magazine.  He started to think what would happen if this or that chapter would be before/after, and after asking friends, he decided to change the order.  He doesn’t say it directly but by friends I bet he means Ryohgo-sensei.
You can clearly see he got influenced by him in the slice of life chapters, especially how some of them overlaps time wise.

He also says Kotoha didn’t exist until the last revision of the manga, just before the magazine publication started. The editor told him it would be nice if there was a girl with glasses so he added her at the last moment. But now she’s his favorite character.

Yozakura Quartet final OAD’s PV

(The video contains spoilers if you haven’t seen the first two OADs or read the manga in case it’s not obvious).

At last, the final episode of these OADs. It’s been more than a year since the first one got out. The manga is still awesome as ever, I hope they’ll announce another animation project soon. These new studios, KMMJ and Purple Cow with their respective staffs made a great job. I guess it helped at lot that Ryo-Timo directed it. Gonna try to write some wrap up post when I’ll watch it. This final OAD gets out on the 9th of November, bundled with the 11th volume of the manga.
