Ultimate source may be the obi's on the next tankubon which releases on 2/12 and should have reached distributors on Friday or today.

Further unconfirmed news from /a/- the studio is NOT Kyoani. JC Staff has been mentioned. Announcement probably Monday.

I've heard a lot of stuff about this and I hope is real and done by Kyoani (the JC stuff was just shitposting I'm pretty sure).
However, it is very likely that this is fake but the fact that this spread so quickly hopefully shows Kyoani that we want it and would be happy to get it.
But most importantly, I hope we get a confirmation on Kobayashi's feelings. It is one of the main reasons I follow this series.

I dreaded the day this would happen. The first season is already perfect and I don't want it to be ruined by the dumb shit that happens later in the manga.

>>2817271
>>2817409
Maybe they'll follow this route of adapting the spino-offs instead of the main manga.
>>
>>2817469
I hope not. The threads from when the first season was airing were garbage because they were nothing but whining about that chapter.
Threads have been comfy lately, so animating that chapter would ruin everything, not to mention it would attract a lot of shitposters from /a/.
>>
I hate to be that person but it seems to be fake, as much as I want a second season, the last episode and the ova feels like a better closure for the story and for Kobayashi feelings, not totally romantic but with big hopes for Tohru instead of being forever maidzoned or ignored like in the manga. Also Kobayashi neglectic Kanna as adaughter, constantly rejecting Tohru and Tohru saying that she only cares for Iruru and Kanna because of Kobayashi kills the family vibes
>>
>>2817465
>>2817569
I see what you're saying, the manga kinda gets worse and worse after the parts the anime covered and the characters stop feeling like themselves too. Mostly Kobayashi and how she rejected Kanna as a daughter and how forced it feels everytime she avoids Tooru. The original Kobayashi would've fallen for Tooru a long time ago.
>>
>>2817666
I bet Cool thinks there's more money in dragging it out and having us wait and hope for them to get together. The problem is he's no longer even throwing hints that they might anymore.

Between the fading yuri subplot and the glut of new characters it barely resembles the fun that started years ago. If it is getting a 2nd season there is probably plans to keep the manga going for another couple years as well. I don't want to even think of how out of control the cast and story will be by then.

This might be a bit of a biased thread to ask in but what are everyone's general thoughts on Dragon Maid?

I dropped the manga 30-something chapters in because I felt the characters were a tad too shallow with most of them having some recurring gag that defined a big part of their personality. I felt the "serious" and fighting parts were subpar and not worth putting any chapters into. I fucking hate the Shouta chapters. The comedy wasn't horrible but it didn't endear me enough to keep reading especially with those first two factors I mentioned. With the season 2 announcement, I decided to binge 40 chapters to catch up and I really can't say much has changed. The flaws are still apparent and the big tits dragon now has het gags and Tooru still gets shafted mostly.

I might watch the anime because I liked how the S1 anime adapted the manga differently and made some events feel more meaningful even though the original was much more shallow.
>>
>>2818172
I only watched the anime and I really liked it. In fact it's one of my favourite shows from 2017.
Didn't really mind the Shouta stuff (altough it would have been preferable for him to be a girl) and I thought Elma was such a wasted character. Even Lucoa had more to her than /ss/ pandering, but Elma is just "food" and she appears when the series is almost over.
Other than that I enjoyed almost everything; the characters, the growing relationship between Tohru and Kobayashi and the fantasy stuff being only the background to a comfy girl-meets-girl story (just like Koukaku no Pandora).
>>
>>2818172
Looks like a case of the anime being an improvement over the manga, I went into the anime expecting monster girl shenanigans and got yuri family bonding.
>>
>>2818172
I also dropped the manga eventually but I stuck around a lot longer than you did. It derailed from the small comfy cast with cute yuri comedy and unobtrusive fantasy elements into a ridiculous entourage of uninteresting characters, worst part is that the most commonly reoccurring ones embody a het hentai author's predilections to an unsavory degree. This must be like marrying someone and years later realizing I don't love who they are anymore. I guess that was why I found the s2 news depressing. It was a reminder that they forgot o/u/r life together and remarried a man.
>>
>>2818172
I only really care about the the "main couple" of Kobayashi and Tohru, but I really, really like them so the scarce chapters where they get any development are able to keep me reading lol. I actually was a lot more annoyed by Shouta in the anime than in the manga. I think he got more spotlight there. Kanna's Daily Life was unexpectedly good.
>>
>>2818172
I like this series a lot but I can say that it has a lot of problems.
The side characters take too long to be interesting
The author can't seem to follow trough with the main couple, maybe he's setting something up, maybe he wants to use it as a finale. It's annoying how much he teases eitherway.
There are a lot of generic jokes and tropes, mostly due to Ilulu.
And I could name a few more but regardless of them I still like it and Kanna's spinoff is my favorite by a lot.
>>
>>2818172
The problem the author seems to have shota fetish since he made another manga about a shota fucking big tittes girls.

It won't surprise me that shota character is some sort of self insert
>>
>>2818256
yeah the guy is definitely a shotacon. All the hentai doujinshi I seen from him are all shota. Which is why its ick how constantly he does all the shotacon tropes when its Lucoa chapters. You go from a family bonding chapter to onee-san hugs 10 year naked scene.
>>
>>2818256
>shota fetish
>he

I have a box full of NOPES for that :)
>>
>>2818309
it's clearly a mommy fetish not a shota fetish, which is why he fixates so much on giant titties

>>2818324
but why waste it with a shota when several lolis exist

>>2818154
What about original content with Kanna and Tohru meeting Kobayashi's parents and them seeing their daughter's wife and child.
>>
>>2818172
The only decent yuri manga he's written was Fullpapla. I thought it was pretty cute and had some funny moments.

>>2818256
Didn't he also add in shots moments in that manga about the girl living with a bunch of monster girls? I only read that for the ice girl and the main girl.

The real question is how would they react to seeing the way Tohru acts around Kobayashi. They'll think their daughter has a sex slave.

>>2818490

It's about time we saw Kobayashi's parents.
At least let us learn her FIRST NAME
>>
>>2818496
What do you think her first name would be? Kobayashi looks like she'd have a cute name like Mai.

Decided to read the Kanna manga after hearing the raving reviews and I gotta say it's significantly better than the original.

Focuses exclusively on Kanna rather than awkwardly hobble around each of the 10 side characters each chapter. Maintains a consistent cute and comedic tone rather than uneven tone the original sets of comedy/heartwarming/serious. While the yuri isn't every chapter, it's also a consistent theme rather than Dragon maid's idea of doing yuri teasing, then shota, then het, then Otaku bromance.

Honestly all my complaints about the original seem pretty similar aha. The original tries to do so much and starts flopping at all of them while the Kanna manga focuses on its strengths. If you like dragon maid, I highly recommend reading Kanna's spinoff, it's much better.

Obviously she regrets it because it cost her her position as a goddess, but I think she enjoyed it. People tend to show their true colours when they're drunk.

Change of staff can have a big impact on a show. Yuru Yuri S3 was very different from the previous seasons (and worse) as a result of being made by a different studio.
I think Maidragon had a certain personality that might be lost if handled by other studio, not to mention they might include the worst parts of the manga that the first season ignored. You can already see in the spin-offs how different writers have different takes on the characters.
>>
>>2820942
>Yuru Yuri S3
>and worse
No, it was a better job in general, especially abandoning Akarin's annoying Meme, he was forced and in the end it was not fun, they focused on the important things.

that's why I also mentioned Deen with Rozen Maiden, it was a much better job and more faithful to Manga, while the first seasons were a disaster that only had fans for memes.

>that might be lost if handled by other studio
or maybe not, it would be better to wait for management to give you the study, even if the original was Kyoani (nagato-chan is better than haruhi by the way)

>they might include the worst parts of the manga that the first season ignored.
that depends on the general management, but there are parts that people do not like, but they have to be put on.

>You can already see in the spin-offs how different writers have different takes on the characters.

Yes, but this is a second season, not Spin-off, the change can do a better or worse job, I just hope that people judge correctly and do not do those stupid fanboys tantrums even when the original was horrible.

>>
>>2820997
Yuru Yuri S3 was a generic SOL completely lacking the zany humor that made the first two seasons enjoyable.
I'm not really a Haruhi fan, but Nagato-chan is just some boring moeblob with absolutely none of the qualities that made the original series so widely popular and influencial.
KF2 hasn't even ended yet and so far it has been a retread of the first season.
>>
>>2821002
>Yuru Yuri S3 was a generic SOL completely
no, it was always that way, the only thing that made S1 and S2 was to exaggerate things, the humor worked better in the manga, the Meme Akarin was stupidly inserted.

>qualities that made the original series so widely popular and influencial.
no, it was really just pretentious and silly, to the point that its author could not handle it and was so influential that it was forgotten by its fans, Nagato-chan is basically a fanfic, but it's not pretentious.

>KF2 hasn't even ended yet and so far it has been a retread of the first season.

Bought a volume of Kanna's daily life to support the series. Kanna calls Tooru, "Lady Tooru" and Tooru says "Miss Kobayashi".


But in the classroom scene, we still see Saikawa-san and Kanna-chan, so the translation does keep the honorifics sometimes (which is what I expected from Seven Seas). Is this just inconsistent translation? I thought the original had Tooru-sama and Kobayashi-san.
>>
>>2821189
Yes, it's a shitty translation.
>>
>>2821191
Sigh, shitty translation indeed. Just finished reading the volume. In the Tanbata chapter, Kanna reads the name of everyone who posted wishes and gets mad when she notices Fafnir didn't write one and gets mad at him. In the translation, Kanna reads out Fafnir's name (instead not reading Takiya) but still gets mad at Fafnir in the next panel. It's a mistranslation that ruins a joke, which is a really bad mistake.

In the bonus chapter, the popularity poll lists Saikawa twice, I'm guessing one of those is supposed to indicate Takiya since he's the only character not in the poll. Both these translation mistakes shaft Takiya lol.

I was surprised dragon maid volumes release pretty close to the original Japanese release date (at least compared to other yuri translations) but I guess the reason is now obvious seeing as they just pushed a rushed, no QA translation.
>>
>>2821189
Sometimes scanlators play around with how honorifics are used based on context. For example, the world Tooru and Kanna come from isn't exactly Japan, so it would make sense that they probably wouldn't use Japanese terms themselves. I kinda do the same thing with my Bocchi Kaibutsu TL, since it's a Western setting. Additionally, "Miss Kobayashi" is the title, so it makes sense to give it context, and honestly -sama doesn't really sound that good as is these days.

Despite Kobayashi using the word friend I don't think the manga ever implied that she only saw her as a friend. Other chapters have shown her being basically a mother.

>Despite Kobayashi using the word friend I don't think the manga ever implied that she only saw her as a friend. Other chapters have shown her being basically a mother.
That's exactly the problem, it goes against everything else the series has, from the anime to the spinoffs Kobayashi has always been moving towards the "mother" relationship with Kanna. It felt so forced and anticlimactic to leave it as friends and I doubt they will ever revisit the topic. That's why I hope they either don't adapt that arc or change the ending.
