The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya S2

I'm sure only like 2 other people here care, but anyway... Haruhi season 2 just started!

I guess there's nothing remarkable about that. But what I find astonishing is that they're airing season 2 episodes within the continuity of season 1. It's both the first episode of season 2 and the eight episode of the series as a whole.

I guess this is probably the only show big enough to do a stealth premiere like that... AND air new episodes mixed in with old episodes. I kind of wish that something like that could happen here, but I don't think any American TV producer is that clever.

Whoa, wait this actually started? You'd think there would be a bit more fanfare when the second season of one of the most popular anime out there started up. It might not be very manly of me to say so, but I liked the show overall. Thought it was really funny. I may have to track down some fansubs now.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised that this is the eighth episode in continuity. Afterall, this is the show that aired its eleventh episode first.

Yep. What's awesome is that even though they're "out of order", it's perhaps even more thematically consistent.

I also got the impression that they wanted this to be a surprise. My understanding is that the only real indication that this was season 2 was when they announced that this airing of the series would be 28 episodes long. When they accidentally leaked the episode title for this week and they went out of their way to take down the webpage.

It's also perfect how this episode just slips into the S1 continuity without blinking an eye.

Awesome!

Well, too bad for me but it's going to be a while before I watch it. Just too much other stuff on the plate.

I'll probably just wait until the whole thing is over.

Hee. In other surprising news, FMP's new season just started as well!

But yeah, I can only imagine the pain of waiting all that time... hooray for getting into anime late!

If a new season of FMP were announced...well, you would never see my posting again. My brain would explode from the amount of awesomeness that my body just wouldn't be able to process

Re: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya S2

I've been meaning to check this series out as I've heard and read very good things about it. It'll have to wait though, there are other anime series that I need to finish first (specifically Azumanga Daioh, Chrono Crusade and When They Cry)

I've only just recently got back into the habit of watching anime. For a while it became too expensive a habit to indulge in but thankfully things are a bit more stable now.

That'd be one big pile of brain goo splattered all over the TBBS floor.

When you do get around to watching it, just remember this. broadcast order. Thats the way you want to watch it

Well, somehow it doesn't surprise me, Kyoto Animation is filled with bunch of lovable trolls that like to mess with your heads, especially if it involves Haruhi. You had the whole whacked out broadcast order when it first aired, the "nice boat" video posted instead of the Haruhi-Chan internet series because they weren't done with it, and now this. To sum it up basically they were trying to say:





Bamboo Rhapsody was a great episode, looking forward to more.

I wish I had access to my DVDs right now.
What happens at Kyoto Animation?

"That's classified!"
