New KimiNozo Spinoff

MoonPhase (along with DarkMirage and Moetron) has posted news that a new Kima ga Nozomu Eien spin-off anime series is in the works. Agê announced during the Mitsuki Hayase birthday conference on August 27 that they are in development on Haruka’s Road, a series that follows Haruka’s story. DarkMirage posts rumors of an alternate storyline, diverging from before the fated car acccident in the original KimiNozo.

How they can label anything KimiNozo without the deep angsty emo-ness of the bitter, screwy love triangle the accident produced in the original is beyond me but it’ll be interesting to see what more news develops.

    Another KGNE anime? I can seen another Kanon, But do we really need a Haruka’s path anime . . .

    It’s not that I actually agree with any of those (Kanon or KGNE)… But why is a Kanon remake better than a KGNE remake? Or a Eva remake? Or a Dragon Ball remake? Or any-anime-at-all remake?
    Do we really need to see KyoAni’s take on Kanon? Or IS it because it’s KyoAni? Would you disaprove a Kanon remake if it was made by another studio?
    Gah, this whole matter irritates me.

    The Kanon remake is a REMAKE. It\’s based on the game (like the Toei animation), but will be longer with (as we\’ve seen) better animation, which leads us to hope that story elements compressed or missing in the Toei version will be gvien more screen time in the KyoAni. Eva has already been remade. That would be the movies.
    This new KimiNozu isn\’t a re-make, it\’s another series taking their characters and putting them in a different scenario. Like CLAMP did with Tsubasa Chronicles.
    I\’m not complaining about a new series (I\’m a Haruka fanboy), what I was saying was that one of the major elements of KimiNozo was the angst which was a result of the accident – without the accident what kind of story will emerge?

    Frankly I’d have wanted to see a MuvLuv anime more….unless there is one.

    Well for the kiminozu remake..i think that the car accident will still take place? but at the end how the main character chooses haroku in the end?
