It’s called “Sakura-Hime Kaden” [桜姫華伝 (さくら ひめ かでん)] which as a simplified, not exact translation, could be “Sakura Princess Legend” or something~ (I had to find the kanji and get help with the third one). So more specific might me “Sakura Princess Flower Legend” if you translate all the kanji separately (kaden in romajii doesn’t seem to mean much).
It should be starting in the…January issue of Ribon? Which would be released 12/01/08 (right?). I’m not sure, someone please correct me if I’m wrong.
Edit: Still don’t know what it’s about exactly, but someone translated the blue text and it seems it will be a historical series. The Heian era specifically (meaning SUPER pretty kimono drawn by Arina-sensei!)
Ah thank you to everyone who cleared things up so quickly. I really appreciate it. The only real service I can offer is gathering this information in one place since my Japanese is so very, very limited. I appreciate all the tips and I’m sure anyone else reading this does too.
So, moving right along. After September 20th, quite a few things did get cleared up.
Well, since the new “season” is coming out soon there’s a few things I want to clarify and all that before we plunge into what will likely be another fifty episodes. I’ve ended up collecting some information through tips and things I just stumble on, so I thought I’d share it with anyone who still hasn’t stumbled onto this sort of information. Now you can stumble onto it all in one place.
Things are still unclear and mostly rumors, but there’s going to be a Shugo Chara! “event” tomorrow. So hopefully things will become clear soon.
Also, any further tips are appreciated.
Begin Super EDIT!!!! Yeah, ANN was completely wrong it seems. Thanks to usagijen for giving us all the correct seiyuu. Even if it’s still “unofficial” at this point. ANN teaches us it’s better to be safe than sorry it seems.
The day an anime site that has “Anime News” in the title gets news completely wrong is a day where I feel like I have to smack my head against the wall…repeatedly.
I wonder if this is just my mind playing tricks on me, but with this news it seems like I can remember ANN announcing that their encyclopedia was easier to edit or something. Maybe this is just some stupid fangirl’s idea of a prank and we should get our own grudge demons to go and attack her.

This explains everything: Shugo Chara! Magical Girl’s Anime 2nd Year Green-Lit!
I’m writing this right after I opened the page up *hasn’t read it yet* Because the news need to be spread. Like…NAO!
Let’s see…Nakayoshi going to officially announce it on August 2nd. *squee* Two days before my birthday, what a nice present~! Thank you! How awesome would it be if I got that issue on my birthday? I know I won’t…but still…
So everyone, Ikuto’s arc will get animated. And it seems it will be in it’s entirety. That’s what a second season should mean anyway.
Now I’m really wondering what they’ll be doing with the rest of this season too. Hmm. Something to think about.
EDIT: I just have “Season 2″ as the title, it’s not the sort of “second season” you’d usually get from mahou shoujo. Same storyline (with a possible filler arc). It’s more like a CardCaptor Sakura thing. The “second year” is probably just an extension. There probably won’t be a break. However, people don’t understand “second year” like they understand “second season” so I chose that as my title to get the point across. Just to make this clear…Shugo Chara is continuing. No need to be more specific than that really.
Sorry for any confusion. I was too busy having a heart-attack to properly make sense.[/edit]
