A lot of shows come and go with just their one short season of episodes from the manga they're based on and fans are left wishing that they had managed to make more, or that the ratings were enough to justify it. Well, there's a pair of shows getting some new seasons green lit that fans will definitely be excited about.
From Hachima Kiko, Moe Ota-News Sokuho comes word that a second season of Squid Girl has been announced in Weekly Shonen Champion but no premiere date has been set and production has not yet begun. Amusing, ANN has an update to it that one of the voice actresses in the show, Rie Tanaka, was quite surprised about the news and was asking fans on twitter where they got it from.
And from Manganews, 2channel comes word that the April issue of Lala magazin is announcing that a third season of Natsume's Book of Friends will be going into production as well with the season name of Natsume Yūjin-Cho San.
Squid Girl was simulcast on Crunchyroll in 2010 and is likely to get another pick-up if offered since the show did pretty good for the company. Natsume's Book of Friends has had both seasons shown on the service as well and the second season was a simulcast while the first was a catch-up release.
