Inital D OVA + Hatsukoi Limited Anime Announced

+ posted by c_k in Anime News on Aug 28, 2008 05:25
Fans of Shuichi Shigeno's seinen manga Inital D may be happy to hear that a sequel to the 2001 Initial D: Extra Stage OVA celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Initial D anime franchise, will be on sale on December 5. The sequel, Initial D Extra Stage 2: Tabi-Dachi no Green, will star the two girl racers, Mako and Sayuki, from the 2001 OVA. Shigeno's manga was first published in 1995 in Kodansha's Young Magazine and is still ongoing with 37 volumes compiled to date.



In other news, Mizuki Kawashita's short lived romantic comedy, Hatsukoi Limited, is in plans for both an anime adaption and a drama CD. Kawashita's manga ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump from September 2007 until May 2008 and her series will be compiled into 4 volumes.



Since I don't read the Initial D manga, I wonder if they will take material from manga to make this OVA. Any thoughts? As for Hatsukoi Limited, I wonder how they will adapt this series as an anime. To me, the manga seemed a bit too jumbled in the beginning so maybe they will do a better job of introducing the characters in the anime. Although the manga had a somewhat satisfying ending, I sort of hope they make a different story line.

It'll be a really short anime for a really short manga ~.~

Still, that was a good manga. It deserves an anime! But I doubt they'll do a very good job of introducing the characters better than the manga did >.>

Let's face it, if the manga doesn't give you backstories, the characters DON'T have backstories.
