Sequel to Spice and Wolf / 狼と香辛料
Due to successful DVD sales (vol 1 reached 9133 units), Spice and Wolf sequel is announced with pretty much the same crew who did the 1st last year except for character designer (Kazuya Kuroda is replaced by Toshimitsu Kobayashi). Studio Brain Base will be doing this instead of IMAGIN.
I consider this series as delightful, under the radar hit, kindling hopes that there is still something anime can offer. Slated for summer 2009 release, perhaps same time with famous moe anime, Nogizaka no Himitsu (also another DVD success, 7556 unit for vol 1).
Certainly good news for me.
