I finished the 1st season of Minami-Ke by Daume yesterday and started the 2nd season, I've watched up to episode 07 so far and will continue after the Arsenal-Barca CL 2nd leg match. A lot of people have complained and just said how awful season 2 is to season 1 but I think its a bit of an over-reaction by many, I reckon season 2 is still pretty funny but probably not as much as season 1. In season 2, I occasionally think that Haruka is one hell of a b*tch. Also, I would like to point out that season 2 is considered almost entirely FILLER and season 3 returns to the manga material or so I've heard.
Hence, Fuyuki is an anime-original character created for season 2 but I don't know if he's still included in season 3 yet.
If I wanted to....I might actually finish off season 3 and the OAD by tomorrow but with a Man U match happening, I think it will take me till Thursday before approaching another anime.
Season 1 gets a 8/10
from me and season 2 has a very similar score from me at the moment, the remaining episodes will either change or keep the score.
As for season 4 of Minami-Ke, it can be done and most likely will fall in the hands of Asread (the guys behind Shuffle and Season 2 and 3 of Minami-Ke including the OAD). The reasons I'm saying that it can be done is because the first 3 seasons of the anime have used up 68 chapters worth of manga material according to manga-updates and currently there are 134 RAW manga chapters released. Another, thing to consider is that, Asread's next anime project is the horror-mystery anime, Shiki, who's original creator is Fuyumi Ono (the author of 12 Kingdoms and Ghost Hunt), the anime starts July 2010. Hopefully, we will get a season 4 and as for when it will come out, probably 2011.......I like this series and for me there's nothing wrong for continuing it.
