Newtype’s Shocking Haruhi Announcement Unveiled!

haruhi-flag-barer

Newtype’s announcement that “something is going to happen” with regard to otaku exploitation anime Haruhi has been finally made public, taking the form of no less than four shocking announcements.

The announcements run along these lines:

1. The seiyuu for Haruhi, Nagato and Mikuru are recording some exclusive interview for distribution only to Newtype’s loyal rubes!

2. Endless Eight will be shown again on Newtype’s site for a whole day at the end of August! Relive the joy!

3. Fans will finally get to test their knowledge of Endless Eight in the “Endless Eight Cult Quiz”! How many questions will you be able to answer?

4. New information on Haruhi goods for you to obediently buy up is forthcoming!

Incidentally, they chose today to take their server down for (scheduled) maintenance; you can see the announcement in situ below:

    Those who abandoned the franchise after this endless eight fiasco, was never true fan of the series.

    However, I still believe there still some big fanbase for this series despite their theatrical act of endless eight.

    This act could probably be a publicity stunt for otaku and fans of the series to remember for years to come.

    This is SO dammed hilarious! I can't come up with a better thought about it, but I love these guys, just for their sheer guts.
    Good thing I'm not that into Haruhi anymore, or I'd sure flip out or something ¦3
    As for the fanboys (not part of this cult of theirs) out there, too bad.

    I've never watched Haruhi, but I've heard alot about Endless Eight.

    What IS it, exactly?

    The most genius ploy in marketing history. If you think you knew how to make a buck before, rethink everything....

    And it's also a stupid title that someone thought was catchy and clever. It's either endless or it's a definite eight, my old math book just got a beef with Haruhi fans....

    Yes, but what IS it? Are they episodes? What're the episodes entailing?

    Time had got stuck in a loop, so they remade the same episode 8 times, but slightly different each time through. Also the 8 of Endless 8 is a visual pun on the symbol for infinity.

    Hey you guys half willing to sacrifice yourself should pool your money together for an assassin or letter bomb or whatever.

    Break a few legs or destroy a few sinuses or give tinnitus to Kadokawa and Kyoani.

    Well, this is obviously some kind of joke. It's not even vaguely funny of course, but I've often found some aspects of Japanese humour to be quite impenetrable to the western mind. Because no-one gives a flying fuck about Endless Eight except to vilify it and only the most retarded troll in existance could fail to realize that by now.

    You know, they seem to truly think acting Haruhi-like on the fanbase is really funny. They should take a hint from their own Konata Izumi ('That kind of thing is charming in fiction, but just annoying in real life...').

    If they were producing Zero no Tsukaima instead, would they whack the fans with a lash and call them dogs?

    Seriously though... will someone sacrifice themselves?

    I want to see detached Kadokawa and KyoAni limbs.

    Send Beatrice after them.

    This Endless Troll is caused by the Endless Witch Beatrice.

    Haruhi is the real Beatrice. No. Kadokawa and Kyoani combined are Beatrice!

    As much as I want new Haruhi (and nothing to do with Endless Eight), I can't lie. This is actually quite entertaining. The show has already went down in history for it's story and characters, but all the stunts they're pulling is going to make it something no otaku will ever forget.

    Yeah, I will use it as torture for my children one day when they too become the Otaku of the future. If they talk back to me, I will make them watch all 8 episode in a row before they can do anything else. The first episode will be something they enjoy until they figure out that I am pulling a KyoAni.

    Almost had me until I realized this has nothing to do with Newtype 10'2009 issue and is related to Newtype Anime web channel.

    Incomplete truth is the best troll, good job.

    Oh, and apparently what will be shown on Newtype Anime Channel is a RECAP of Endless Eight.
    Well, that's awesome, seriously.
    Good that it's not any of actual episodes. :D

    Devotion has reduced you to idiocy I see:

    【情報02】
    「エンドレスエイト」特別上映会開催。
    特別上映会は27時間限定で開催。
    気になる内容は、もちろん“エンドレスエイト”関連。

    Nothing about a recap so far. "Special screening."

    Wow those clever trolls.

    So basically they want otaku to REWATCH that horrid arc for an on-site trivia quiz? Is there any prize in that for answering? Or are they just twirling villain mustaches?

    No, if you can answer all the questions correctly, they send you via mail, a bottle full of cyanide or a bottle full of painkiller.

    You are both wrong, instead, you get another version of Endless Eight that plays exactly 15,532 times and keeps you from closing the browser or turning your computer off. Loss of power doesn't stop it since it is what Haruhi truly wants.
