The first still shots from Zero no Tsukaima season 2 have made their way online today courtesy of Famitsu, along with character designs and a list of the main cast and staff. With a new director and several other key staff changed from the first series much is still uncertain, but the familiar visuals are reassuring… as long as they keep the sparkly scene wipes intact I’ll be happy. In other 0nT news, a line of figures of the main cast has been announced by Comic Alive, where the manga is serialized. Unfortunately it seems that to acquire them you have to buy two copies of the magazine per character and make a trip to the post office for a 1,000 yen postal money order; an awfully lame set of conditions for a ~10 cm figure. I may just go for the Kirche, though. :3 (no more)
