Odds and Ends for Spring 2009

Some surprising (and not so surprising) news has been popping up recently-

The new collaboration between Ikki Tousen Xtreme Xecutor and Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Tairan looks pretty interesting- and it really makes all the sense in the world. So far, it only seems to mean that the two series are sharing the same website (PVs for both series are up), but it'll be interesting to see if anything else comes out of it. (What if more titles tried cross promotions with other, similar titles? Aoi Hana season 2/Marimite? Octave/White Album- or any other music-related romance title about disaffected young adults? Kuroshitsuji/Hayate the Combat Butler?)

Plus, a new character trailer for Working!! is up, focusing on Kyouko the manager. (Which means a blink-and-you'll-miss-it flash of crushiness from Yachiyo.)

And thanks for voting in last week's polls, if you voted. ^^ Just to preserve the results after I remove the polls from the sidebar, I'm putting the results below.

Question 1: Which yuri anime are we most likely to see green-lit next?
Total number of votes: 66
The answer that I would choose: Girl Friends

Question 2: Which yuri anime would you most like to see green-lit next?
Total number of votes: 48
The answer that I would choose: Ugh, it's hard to pick... (Probably the reason why less people voted on this one.) I would choose Octave, though, because it's the choice least likely to be green-lit. (And it would probably have a really good soundtrack. An OP by Shes'n and an ED by *squee* Setsuko Fennel, anyone? :-) )

The total list (so far) for spring 2009 series of yuri interest is:
Ikki Tousen XX
K-ON! season 2
Shin Koihime Musou: Otome Tairan

Out of those four, the one that I'm looking forward to the most is K-ON! (Even though, yes, it has virtually no the least amount of yuri.)
