###Miss Monochrome TV Anime Gets 2nd Season in July

1st season about Yui Horie-inspired android girl debuted in 2013

I am very fond of Miss Monochrome. The show is cute and had very short episodes. I love that this is getting another season too. I also enjoy how she keeps popping up on other shows.


In Episode 12, when Maneo Manager thanked the producer for letting Miss Monochrome to appear as a passerby in a drama, it refers to her appearance in the anime Golden Time.



Miss Monochrome was also a background character in “Girl Friend Beta”, which was nice to see. I hope she keeps popping up in things. It’s always a nice surprise!

Just a note that the sequel series comes out this summer as well.

Nuts! I meant to watch this last night. Oh, well. Tonight is just as good.

And a new song for her album!

And a great way to gain a promoter! However, she’s a bit of a klutz - until she’s behind the wheel of her car.[/details]

[details=Spoiler]I like how they worked in Miss Monochrome’s appearance from Wooser’s show. Really cute!

It was a shame that Miss Monochrome became so jealous of Akiko. She lost a great guitarist. But Akiko shines on her own and becomes a big star in America.

Miss Monochrome sticks with Ru-chan as her complete band, DJ, and lighting director. Her little rap song about Ru-chan was cute too. But her humor still needs work![/details]

“That was a joke.”
