Haruhi Otaku Champion

haruhi-2ch-hotel-champion-3.jpg

The tale we heard of ardent Haruhi fans booking into Saitama business hotels to catch the very earliest airing of the new season appears to have been true.

For one very special fan, this entailed booking into the hotel, constructing a mobile Haruhi shrine around the TV, and then proceeding to upload pictures of his viewing, along with celebratory comments like “It’s here!” and “Gratz!”, to 2ch’s Haruhi board in realtime.

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:

Desperate Otaku Converge on Saitama for Haruhi Broadcast

kotatsu-nekomimi-nagato.jpg

In a few hours, it will be known whether the latest episode of the Haruhi rerun will be a new episode or not. But it seems the prospect of waiting days for the episode to air in their own region, or having to wait hours to see it by other means, is just too much for Haruhi otaku.

We hear this from a 2ch denizen:

“I work in a Saitama business hotel. Since yesterday we have been having all kinds of calls asking whether the hotel has reception of Saitama TV [which carries one of the earliest airings of the episode]… I laughed.”

Haruhi Second Season Episode Dated

bunny-girl-haruhi-bust.jpg

Against all reason Haruhi fans are still hoping for clarification on the matter of whether the rerun currently airing will actually contain new episodes, and with Kadokawa merrily stringing them along, they are left to glean what they can from third party reports.

The latest such report comes from the recent Wakayama TV listings, and seems quite credible as such.

Terrestrial viewers in many regions are reeling with the latest onslaught of the censors on hapless oppai anime Queen’s Blade.

The most recent episode, acclaimed for erotic massage of oppai pharoah Menas, has suffered more heavily than ever under their hand, and now it seems even gratuitous panchira, the very lifeblood of the series, are no good.

You can see a detailed comparison of the two versions below:

Mother Boils Baby: “It Was Fun to Hear Her Scream”

loli-in-hot-water.jpg

A mother and her female friend, both 19, have been arrested for torturing the mother’s 2-year-old daughter for amusement, immersing her in boiling hot water and laughing at the ensuing agony caused.

Their motivation was that they found the infant’s crying and screaming “funny”, as it reminded them of a famous comedian on Japanese TV whose act involved being made to eat boiling hot noodles.

Broadcaster Rages over Unwanted Loli Mascot Chidejika

An “image character”, or mascot, for promoting digital terrestrial broadcasting has infuriated the very broadcaster it was supposed to promote after it was first turned into a loli by eager fans, and then began to be illustrated in a sexually explicit manner.

The broadcaster is vowing to put a stop to the lolified mascot by suing the fan artists into oblivion for copyright infringement.
