Minami-ke is not licensed in North America and there have been no announcements or any rumours of such happening.
I have heard of it. I'm an anime watcher, so I haven't read much of the manga, but I really enjoyed the first season. From what I've heard, the first season of the anime sticks closely to the manga, while the second (disappointing) season, Minami-ke Okawari, deviated from it, which was pretty clear through the writing. Thankfully, the third season, Minami-ke Okaeri, seems to be back on track with the first season in terms of writing, but the animation has taken a noticeable hit in quality,
Basically, I enjoy Minami-ke and think it's a nice slice of life series.
