According to ICV2, Crunchyroll has acquired the streaming license of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, its new series in 2009, and Haruhi-chan & Churuya-san. They will provide the first season on their pay service and will move on to the free-streaming. The second season will be available later this year.

Bandai Entertainment keeps the DVD license and they expect CR's streaming to be a promotion of the series.

offtopic: It was called Endless Eight because the endless symbol in it

The free-stream in Crunchyroll is super while it is legal to look the videostreams.

That's great news. I really want to rewatch 2009.

And, no, that wasn't meant to be sarcastic. I loved 2009.
Sigh <3

Crunchyroll always crashes when I try to watch anything there, so they will not get my money.

I will do it for them.

We are sorry for subjecting you to this crap. We know it sucks and some of you say it is great because you don't want to be in the minority of a minority of a minority. I mean, were else would you go? CrunchyRoll.com will license something good for you next time, we promise.

I love the endless eight, and how they give the audience a false hope that something new would come out the next episode.

I have to say that the Haruhi series was actually one of my favorite dubs, good show Crunchyroll ol' bean! Even though I already saw them.

I can't help it, I love Haruhi, and since I have the Limited Edition of season 1 I have to get whatever's the most exclusive this time around.
And this is the reason Kyoani can make shit and get away with it.
It's only shit if you don't like it. Don't assume everybody feels the same way about Endless Eight.

Endless Eight was IMO the only really good part of the series. I guess I'm a fool, then.
