Even if it was just ~3mins of content + ~3mins for the preview OP+ED, I was laughing at some of the gags xD It's kinda like Nichijou, K-ON!, etc.

People who went to the pre-airing event did say that the 1st episode was sorta introductory and the 2nd episode is at the K-ON! level of enjoyment.

Understood only about 20% of what they were saying.

So are these Shorts going to run with the TV Series (with different content) or is it just small summaries of the TV Series?

Most of what the heroine said are Chu2 stuff, so you did not miss much about that part.

I would say this is an abridged version of what we are going to see for ep.1
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Yeah KyoAni obviously has no experience with successfully adapting Key visual novels. This is clearly why Key didn't beg them for years to do LB!.

...Oh wait a second.


That's obviously not true
I think It's in KyoAni tradition to at least make one moe anime each year ?
But I don't mind, they probably try to target different market or people in Japan just like moe too much...

And to remind, it's not a part of episode 1, according to ANN

Most of the midnight anime can be called a moe anime anyway.

"Moe anime" has ceased to mean anything useful for a quite a long time now. People just throw that phrase at anything and everything no matter how different the shows are. At best it's sort of a vague, vague stand-in for saying a show is character-focused, which is too broad to tell us anything of value. At least talk about shows in terms of genres or something.


Do you have any right term to best describe it?

I would call Chu2 a Love Comedy. Jmal may have other terms for it.

Found the Japanese source now (Chu2 twitter: https://twitter.com/anime_chu_2/status/251225591716671488 ). It is indeed not to be broadcast on TV. And I got the additional information that there will be more Lite Episodes coming before each TV episode is aired and it will be taken off when the new TV episode comes out. All these Lite Episodes will not be shown on TV.

Since it is not uncommon to have additional anime extra packaged with BD/DVD, what KyoAni is doing seems to be airing those extras ahead of the actual anime broadcast instead of putting them in the BD/DVD.

If you look at the Lite Ep.1 it surely looks like a comedy.

Now if only these would get subbed >_<. Still can't get enough of dat ED! So moe. And Fukuyama Jun as the male lead? Win. Wasn't sure what voice he'd use but looks like he went with the Lelouch voice :P

Ah, and queue the haters. So glad foreigners don't influence anime at all. If you don't like it, watch something else. There's plenty of shows coming out this fall if you don't like moe.

I don't understand why they don't just make an another season of Haruhi Suzumiya... And it's baffling how lazy the writer is, making too much money?

Anyways, the title is confusing as hell sounding in English, why not instead of chu ni byo, call it middle school sophomore/second year syndrome? That way it actually TELLS something

This is one of the biggest mysteries in anime fandom even in Japan. The same question pops up again and again (as well as false hopes). At the end no one knows. The stock is more than enough. The demand is clearly there -- it may have been hurt by the Endless Eight debacle but it was restored by the Disappearance movie. Why not grab the momentum provided by the success of the movie to go for another season? One plausible theory is the turmoil of the relationship between Aya Hirano, the seiyuu behind Haruhi, and her agency stopped any progress of the project, but I am not sure if it is really the whole reason (of course changing the seiyuu is one solution but fans in Japan are very sensitive to any change in the seiyuu cast, particularly the main characters).

Perhaps that would be confusing to some other people? At least "Adolescent Delusion" TELLS something.

Hirano Aya has pulled back from late night anime to a large extent, but still has recurring roles in shows like Fairy Tail, and was recently announced for a role in Girls und Panzer.

However, Fairy Tail is an ongoing role she committed before her troubles. All the roles she got after that have been minor roles, including the one in the coming Girls and Panzer. So it is still not clear how ready Hirano is ready to work on a main heroine role. She was even removed from the cast of Nisemonogatari (Shinobu) and got replaced by Maaya Sakamoto - it is not common for anime to change the seiyuu cast for the same character even if the speaking part is small so this got people guessing.

jmal said:

Personally I think it's just because they've been busy with other things. I do agree that they should do it sooner rather than later though. Enthusiasm always cools over time, and even Haruhi isn't completely immune to that.

When the Haruhi fever rose again with the publication of two new volumes after a long break, it would have been a great opportunity to announce a 3rd season. Yet it did not happen. Now I worry a golden chance has been lost.

I was really hoping this wouldn't be another Kyoani moeblob show (still hoping, since it's just a short). I mean, the PVs looked kind of action-y and stuff! D: I want that!

Yeah, when the volumes were released, I think it outsold most novels there is in a week.(impressive no matter how you look at it)

And fan were probably getting excited again, if they announced a season 2 right the, BAM. Instant hype for months, and guessing work would begin. Man... Who the hell is running Kyoani right now?

I am kind of glad Aya lost her role as Shinobu, because the new Seiyuu is quite satisfying. Aya was really foolish to post a "indecent" picture of herself. It makes me think she was just whoring for attention, and that basically destroyed her career. and the fact she had an orgy with her band probably destroyed the "dreams" of her fans.

damn, if she is the cause of this delay, I am going to be REALLY mad. I want moar Yuki

It's not KyoAni's decision to animate more Haruhi; it's the decision of the SOS Brigade production committee, which would be led by Kadokawa. Kadokawa gave approval for Nichijou (announced a year in advance) and Hyouka (announced 5 months in advance).Those decisions were made in 2009/2010 respectively prior to any sales from BD-Box/movie BD. The show that'll likely air in Spring 2013 was decided in 2011, so it could be Haruhi.

You also neglect to realize that 2013 is the 10th anniversary of the publication of the light novels. It would make poor business sense to run an anime the year prior to that when you can release a new anime, novel, manga volumes (including the first volume of the new Koizumi manga) in one year, thus maximizing any possible revenue.

Hmm...but we don't know how satisfying it might be if Aya voiced Shinobu, so I would not say that I am glad Aya did not get to voice Shinobu just because Maaya was good in voicing Shinobu....

Wait, nobody has confirmed the orgy was a "fact". It is still just the report in a tabloid magazine.
Also I don't think Aya posted that picture herself. You have a credible source that says she posted the pic herself?

Interesting take of how Rikka got to where she looks now.

I wonder if her classmate Tomo will make appearance in the main show. She seems to understand Rikka pretty well.
