Haruhi-chan Anime Not Even Started Yet


It seems the only major confirmed Haruhi title, “Haruhi-chan”, has not even fully begun production, leading many to doubt whether a 2009 release is likely.

The news comes by way of a radio interview with the staff (Lantis) of Ga-rei Zero (at about 40:00): “We’re still not started on Haruhi-chan”.

Much fuss has been made over the supposed announcement of the full second series of the main title, but this latest news, although from a separate production company, hardly suggests the Haruhi marketers take the business of actually releasing the anime they announce seriously…

That said, a 2009 release should still be possible, but the earliness of the announcement if a later 2009 release is planned is rather questionable. Evidently, it is felt that it is best to keep fans in a state of permanent suspense.

Given the very low credibility now attached to Haruhi-related marketing announcements, fans are left doubting that the 2nd season will be delivered at all…

Updated information from their latest announcments seems to suggest that Lantis here must have been referring only to their responsiblities (apparently only the score). Not exactly reassuring all the same, but the series is at least now dated.
