New work for Hanasaku Iroha in 2012?

For those of you who can't get enough of Hanasaku Iroha, here's one more reason to celebrate: The "Hana-iro Ryokan Kumiai" committee has recently announced that a "new visual work" of Hanasaku Iroha is slated to come out next year!

This great piece of news was released in Kanazawa City on Sunday, at the real-life Bonbori Festival - just like the one seen in the anime - which attracted some 5,000 participants. Currently, the committee is keeping any further information about the visual work strictly under wraps, so it’s up to the fans to speculate just what might be in store for them in 2012.

Could it be a live-action adaptation? A movie? Or an OVA sequel? (Will Ohana get married?) We can't wait to find out either! So while we wait for 2012 to roll around, be sure to stay tuned to anibee for more updates!
