Strike Witches: AIC to Replace Gonzo on Strike Witches 2

Strike Witches 2: Pantsu Explosion!

 Goodbye Gonzoooooo

Strike Witches, or "Magical loli furry planes" is one of those series that you just can't un-learn. Right, wrong, or indifferent, the concept is so outrageous (Famous historical fighter pilots as pant less little girls who grow tails and ears) that you cannot help but respect/loathe it. Well, the show was a success and a second season is in the works. However, it is notable that Gonzo will not be returning as the series producer. While the majority of the key staffers will be carrying over, AIC will be the producer for season 2, loosely titled Strike Witches 2 - ki.
I like gossip as much as the next person (I.E. I don't tend to care), but I can't help but ask why a series that was obvious a bankable commodity is being pawned off by Gonzo. Oh well...

@John_Martone: Maybe a time issue, they need money now to save themselves, cuz next year will be too late.  What they should've done is made more Nadesico!  sigh, I can dream

Gonzo probably won't be making any anime anymore then..they might still do some things like in-between animation though.

This is so made of win, i have to find it, it talks to me in a strange, delicious but frightening tongue and i can stop listening...  and a shame that gonzo isn't continuing on it, they are one of my favorite studios
