Haruhi Second Series Airs in April

haruhi-new-series-due-tv-commercial-1.jpg

According to the latest commercial for anime rag Newtype, which had previously announced its announcement, the new TV series of the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi will begin airing in April.

Fans are in shock, and are understandably having trouble accepting this news, but it seems genuine enough.



As you can see from the caps shown, the CM, voiced by Aya Hirano herself, introduced numerous images of the issue, showing off Haruhi related interviews and the like.

What is of interest to us is the cover above, which bears the (small and yellow) text:

4月からTVアニメ放送開始
TV anime broadcasts commence in April

Elsewhere (top), in much bigger lettering, we see more ambiguous wording to the effect that “The Haruhi TV anime is finally underway!”

This CM has been confirmed by a number of viewers.

Now, Haruhi marketing being what it is there is much scope for scepticism, but it is difficult to interpret such unambiguous wording as anything but a rather anti-climactic revelation regarding the release date for this incredibly highly anticipated title.

We will know more on the magazine’s release, by the 10th of February at the latest, but in the mean time it appears the prayers of Haruhi fans have finally been answered?

Or will KyoAni bring down a torch bearing mob upon itself by revealing it to be airing in April 2012? Or perhaps by announcing a rerun of the original “Haruhi TV Anime”. Surely not? It is for reasons such as these that nobody believes a word they have to say anymore.

One final piece in the puzzle is that Aya Hirano apologised in a recent blog update for not being able to update as she was working so hard on something she couldn’t say anything about, but would love to tell us…

    I'm not anticipating this unless i see a actual anime preview of some sort.

    but would be awesome if this was really release and not a April fools thing.

    HARUHI!!...see this would be the stuff of Legend- if they kept a series this Hot and anticipated under wraps just to 'spring it' on people. It's exactly what Haruhi would've done!

    Or maybe Haruhi missed having an Anime Series...so she simply 'wished for it' and suddenly it appeared...as Koizumi might say. Alas, the return of the Queen MOE! - Haruhi!....when are they gonna make a Live action Movie with Hirano already!

    I'd love to see Haruhi comment on all the Animes that have become popular since her debut.

    Haruhi:"Hey Kyon- watch out or I'll write your name in my notebook as a slacker!"

    Kyon: "Knowing Haruhi that person would would die of a Heart Attack if Haruhi wished it so....wait, what am I saying? those things only happen in Animes right?"

    Nagato: "Not if Haruhi deletes their 'special data; fromt he matter stream with her thoughts".

    GOD Bless Haruhi....or Haruhi bless herself.

    Troll. They should've at least released a PV for it by now, it's already February. If by next month KyoAno doesn't release a PV, then all this Haruhi hype is bullshit.

    Because putting "Haruhi will air in April" on the cover is a troll announcement, yeah.

    They're not that stupid.

    Well people, don't despair! It won't be in "April 2012"! I just checked Moonphase, and it's on the list of anime to premiere in April. And if it's in Moonphase, then it's going to fucking air in fucking April! (unless some random Korean dude get's it cancelled for no reason =S)

    My bad, it's on the list, but not in April. I guess they will put it once the Newtype's March Issue comes out. Anyways! Don't despair!

    If the Koreans jump into the middle of this and cockblock Haruhi Season 2, the wave of pure unadulterated hatred and bloodshed will make all earlier rage threads seem like harmless daydreams.

    Personally, I don't think they're quite THAT stupid/suicidal.

    (Of course, leave it to some asshole over there to prove me wrong... and someone will)

    Oh man, if I were Kyoani, I would troll Haruhi fans too. I mean, it's so easy.

    (on the other hand, I would also have to get their money once in a while, so a second season would be a good idea by now)

    April Fool? Well, would make sense. The first episode (TV Version) of the first season was after all funny in a similar way. Only that it wasn't funny and I don't like the first season at all, if it wasn't for Haruhi.

    I'm not going to get my hopes up until I actually see it aired. After giving up being cock blocked by KyoAni, I have grown to enjoy how Haruhifags rage over being played by them.

    I sure hope they know what they're doing, now they have to release it. Personally I don't really care about Haruhi (except for Kyonko), but knowing the fandom if the next thing they say is "LOLOLOL WE TROLL U" they better invest in some security guards for their animation studio. Lots of them.

    Those overweight otakus would run over them in a heartbeat, then the assault team would begin picking off KyoAni staffs one by one, bringing them to a huge bonfire made beforehand.

    Security guards, hell. They better hope their company systems have been adequately secured. Torches-and-pitchfork mobs are easy to disperse - a few gunshots into the air takes the wind out of them. A retaliatory attack against the company's infrastructure? Naaasty.

    And just when I was worrying that K-On! would be Kyoto Animation's spring project instead of the series everyone was truly waiting for... Of course, knock on wood that they are not refering to April 2010. I guess Haruhi-chan airing in February can be seen as promotion leading up to the real series coming back in April?
