The character song CD bundled with the ninth Minami-ke manga volume on Thursday included the following exchange between the cast members — in character:
"By the way, Chiaki, it seems like Minami-ke will be animated again.
I heard that, too. Congratulations! Haruka-neesama.
You, too. Chiaki. We'll do our best again.
Yes, oneesama. Let's do our best.
Why did you say that? I wanted to say that Minami-ke would be animated and give congratulations. I should have been the one to announce that.
We used to do OAV before.
I hope that this will be on television.
And now, we're out of time.
Look forward to the Minami-ke anime, you guys.
We'll give you details some other time.
Don't expect too much."
The ninth manga volume also came with a drama CD and an exclusive 2012 calendar. The manga already inspired three television anime series and a Minami-ke: Betsubara video sequel.
