The Letter Bees Score Second Season, PSP Game

Yay!


Anyone who's been following my userblog knows how much I dig Tegami Bachi, aka Letter Bee-- a shounen series, its youthful hero and soft art combined with lack of really any significant action have managed to not lose my interest the way so many shows do, though that it's still at an episodic stage 20 episodes in is a little worrisome...
  
Nonetheless, I'm excited to hear that while the first season of the show is ending in March, the second season has been formally announced to run in the fall! 
 
If you wanna see what all the fuss is about, hit up my blog for the latest episode, and links to all the past ones, streamed via Crunchyroll! 
 
Speaking of Tegami Bachi, though, word also came out about a few days ago that the series is getting a PSP game, titled Tegami Bachi ~Kokoro Tsumugusha~. The game is an adventure RPG where the player acts as lead character Lag Seeing and, along with his sidekick ("dingo") Niche and travels around Amberground to deliver peoples' letters. 
   
I expect it'll be vaguely VN-style with battles, but I can't help but hope there's some kind of Paperboy minigame somehow.

I found out about it this morning and, suffice to say, I'm very very happy about this. The anime's gone off into fillerland, but hopefully the new longer length will pull it back into the manga plot and get to at least one plot point that I really want it to get to. I also hope Crunchyroll gets the rights to the next season too~

Tegami Bachi second season a go, YES! Granted, it needs a second season because we're in ep 20 and there has been no plot advancement whatsoever. I still love the show and all the side adventures; they don't really strike me as filler because each is a poignant story. We got a teaser at the end of ep. 20 with an appearance from Gauche in the next episode, could he be coming back FINALLY? I don't think of it as a shounen series at all. They'll probably stick us with a big cliffhanger at the end of the season. Don't think I'd be interested in the PSP game though.

Think there will be less crying in season 2?

I assume it'll have a logical escalation. Second seasons usually involve more action in action series, so this will have more crying in the crying series. 
 
For whatever reason I want season 2 to take place a couple years in the future during Lag's puberty. He won't be entirely mature and serious, and his voice will crack as he breaks down into a pile of tears.
