It’d be lovely if Studio Daume could return to the franchise, but it seems that most of their talent has fled elsewhere. Daume hasn’t really done anything notable since the two ICHIGO MASHIMARO OVA series or whatever that SHIKI thing is.
I’m just hoping Masahiko Ohta, from the first season, returns as director, perhaps with Studio Dogakobo doing the animation (they also made Ohta’s most recent series, YURU YURI). Or Studio Bridge, where Ohta directed MITSUDOMOE.

- Yuki-chan no Shoshitsu Takes it Easy:
So, I take it, they won’t actually get to the major “Disappearance” arc from volumes 4 and 5 of the manga until the final few episodes? That’s more or less what I expected going in, but, if it ends with the arc, that means we will continue to be deprived of Sasaki ever being animated in any Haruhi-related continuity unless Satelight does a season 2.
- Phantasy Star Online 2 x Fate/Stay Night:
Will this upgrade work on my Dreamcast? Because I still have the Dreamcast version. :lol:
- Spirited Away Recreated in 8-Bit:
Just to be a party pooper, don’t these “8-bit” recreations tend to have a few too many colours on the screen for them to truly pass for 8-bit? It comes across as a hybrid of 8-bit (Chihiro sprite) and 16-bit (a lot of the larger creatures).
- Yuki-chan no Shoshitsu = “100% Haruhi!”:
For people who haven’t read the manga, don’t worry, Yuki x Kyon still remains the main focus even with Haruhi as a strong supporting character.
- Yuki-chan no Shoshitsu Unseasonably Festive:
Oh, I adore Haruhi in the YUKI-CHAN manga (still waiting to watch the anime) even if the excuses for her working with the literature club at another high school are flimsy at best. Haruhi is pretty much the same character in the Yuki-chan universe, just without her reality-altering subconscious. But, even without the powers, her enthusiasm is unabated.
