Haruhi Second Season Begins

haruhi-second-season-001.jpg

The long awaited second season of the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi has begun, secreted in the midst of a rerun of the first season, and as revealed earlier is the new “Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody” episode.

What remains of Haruhi fandom has exploded, and 2ch entered into meltdown mode with hundreds of posts a minute.

You can see something of the episode below:

The repeated leaks of broadcast schedules seem almost almost too convenient… Quite possibly a deliberate effort

All that remains to be seen is whether the marketing debacle (or “innovative viral marketing strategy”, as Kadokawa will doubtless like to think of it) succeeds in recouping something of the huge popularity the series once enjoyed now that the age has apparently shifted to K-ON!

    ???????
    I wonder why anon's are getting so worked up about the best anime or anime character.
    It doesn't really matter. I'm just overjoyed at the fact that both can exist and that one just got a recent update..

    Doesn't matter whether K-ON or Haruhi tops the charts because that's just going to mean KyoAni versus KyoAni anyway. And I believe some people, like me, will have enough room for both.

    I daresay Artefact is letting his bias for K-ON influence his judgment.

    I'd like to see some of these charts he says shows K-ON's superiority. These charts are almost certainly only for Japan, and in any case only one ep of the new season has come out. It's too early to judge.

    Wonder if this is going to revive that Haruhi-ism cult thing... Well, even if it does this time its got competition, what with the Mio-ism and such.

    HOLY HELL.

    400+ comments already? FUCK this thing IS overrated D: I had no idea of the extent before now...

    Am I the only one who actually freaks out a little whenever he sees Haruhi's face? It's because of her that I started to understand why some kids at school used to say that anime characters look like aliens. Seriously, is this just a joke? Like maybe it's just funny to jump on the bandwagon and praise this show? lol. Yeah, I came too. HARUHI I LOVE J00, lol.

    Oh well, don't mind me, continue your obsessive fandoming ^^ I just wanted to get that out.

    Eight hours and counting, and still no subs, huh.

    Someone said above that there have been subs out for a while now, with no link to prove it, though.

    Well it'll be interesting to see the Disappearance arc, for all those Nagato fans out there. Somehow it feels like there's going to be a Haruhi vs. Mio character battle or something. Well, think I'll just stand on the side and see who's still standing when the dust settles. I don't really care either way, since Haruhi feels too foggy in my memory to really get hyped about too much and I haven't even bothered watching K-On (if I wanted lots of moe, I'd go play Flyable Heart or Nursery Rhyme).

    Dude, they are made by the same company *facepalm*

    If anything, K-on is the prodigy of Haruhi, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw the promo art for K-on forever ago, oh look, they look like Haruhi style.
