Wouldn't be surprised if that happened. I stopped waiting for Haruhi S2 a while ago.

Someone inquired from TV Saitama about the reairing and they replied that there will be 28 episodes.

28 episode... too irregular to be true...

Hirano Aya's 8th Single CD "Set Me Free!" / "Sing a Song" is categorized as Suzumiya Haruhi related material.

New OP song? Chihara Minori's unrelated DVD was also included in the section.

hmm... my hopes aren't so high anymore >.>
I guess it will eventually come

Somehow, I don't want to believe it, so I won't get my hopes up.
Wouldn't be surprised if they said, "JUST KIDDING, HAVE SOME K-ON."

This one is not a troll, its confirmed, air times and all that.

Although rumors are there will be remastered scenes, redubs, and possible deleted material.

I want vol 10 tho...

Mar 10, 2009 2:31 PM by BasakaNZ

Oh lawd, I don't even care anymore... it gets here when and if it gets here.

I have believed them too many times, not this time, I wouldn't be surprised if they re air season 1 after they finish season one, or another stupid Key title.

i think the second season will air in the fall, after the first replays

It better.

It fucking better.

If it's a re-airing that'll suck, because I'm hoping the second season is way better than the mess of a first, though I doubt it will be.
