[size=20]Kill Me Baby! Creator Asked to Prepare for 2nd Season[/size]

The pamphlet included in the latest and final volume of the anime adaptation of Kaduho’s Kill Me Baby! manga notes that the original manga’s creator has been notified about some of the staff’s wishes regarding his drawings in the case that a second season of the anime is produced. The paragraph then goes on to ask fans to continue supporting the series until a decision is made regarding the production of a second season.

Apparently, Otaku Usa lists this as being released in April, from Discotek no less.

However, further on in the review, it mentions that it’s from Sentai, as well as it coming with a dub.

Both April and May Sentai solicitations are alreay out and Kill Me Baby isn’t on them.
So if it’s true, maybe we’ll see this pop up at a later date on the Sentai solicitations.


#8

I think the Sentai reference is a typo in the article.

In any case I will be looking for this when it appears, whoever it comes from. :slight_smile:

I don’t think so.
For one, this is one of the few recent TBS titles Sentai hasn’t licensed.
For two, Discotek has already stated they don’t have it, and all their license announcements come from their Facebook.


#10

OK, sometimes the headlines are accurate but the article body text is where the mistakes happen. Or so I thought. :dry:

In any case it will be nice to see the title come out here whenever it does.

They need to give this, if the dub rumor is true, a Ghost Stories/Milk Chan style dub. Just throw away the original script and start from scratch, they can make Sonya into Golgo 13’s illegitamate daughter - and waky hijinks ensues…


#12

I hope they decide to have a mini Noir reunion on the dub.

Sonya - Shelley Calene-Black (Mirelle)
Yasuna - Monica Rial (Kirika)
Agiri - Hilary Haag (Chloe)

Well it’s not a certainly stretch if anyone has seen ep 48 of Golgo 13… :wink:

The plot summary of this seems interesting but the art (BTW the youtube video in the OP is dead) is, ah, not very interesting, shall I say?

I’ll check it out as, like Detroit Metal City(which needs a dub, totally), it could be hilarious despite my misgivings about the art. With a dub it has to be hilarious; I agree that they should make it a comedic dub as we haven’t had one of those since the legendary Guin Saga dub.

Also, a scary thought just occurred to me: Doing like what they did in ICE and having David Wald voice the “Golgo 13” character in this. I don’t think it is a good idea, but they say sharing is a coping mechanism and my subconscious was clearly scarred by the hilarity of ICE… (/sarcasm)

Edit: A real, physical anime magazine still exists (besides Shounen Jump)? I would have thought this impossible!


#14

Cover art has been posted.


#15

Now it just needs to appear on this website for streaming and I’ll be set.

C’mon cast announcement.

I’m glad to see Foster there, though I wonder what would have happened here if Chris Ayres had been in the director’s chair?

You could tell Hilary Haag was going to be in this just by the character designs…lol. I’m looking forward to this one.


#18

I have no idea what this is since the YT video was taken down for copyright violations…but…

why do I feel Jessica Boone will voice the one with purple hair?


#19
