I'm a big fan of TMOHS, and unexpectedly got a good impression about Black Rock Shooter, despite of not valuing this OVA as brilliant as TMOHS. I even desiring the BRS series. Well, this news is unexpected explanation of my interest to BRS! Apparently, Mr. Tanigawa's works contains something suitable for me.
I hope he continue to write Haruhi light novels. Or if 10th novel is already done and it is the last novel in this series, Mr. Tanigawa is already released from making TMOHS, and that's why he made the BRS scenario.

Also of the opinion its not over yet. Some people are rating it poorly, and at first as i was watching it was inclined to do the same, but as it went on and i started to get what was going, or atleast i made the events make sense to me :) I began i like and enjoy what i was watching.

Such a damn cool character, would be just too sad to end it here. Plus it looked like Yuu is about to a Yomi after the end credits, if that isnt showing a potential sequal i dont know what is. Maybe they want to see how well it gets accepted, before deciding to do something with more detail like a full series, or a couple of sequal OVA's.

Though like any fan, i know too well that series often dont get continued on when they deserve to, or get endings that just dont cut it. Hopefully this wont join that list.

It was too short for him to do something amazing with it, wasn't it? I mean, this wasn't his idea to begin with.
Yeah, I'm defending him.

tanigawa nagaru as scenario writer makes it sound even better
It also means that he's not spending that time writing the last Haruhi novel.

But why is he writing it?


That's the question. If he doesn't want to write Haruhi anymore, he better just end it all together.

its only one episode and is 50 minutes long??? when did this happen? LOL
thats because its a pilot OVA not to mention its Ordet( the Animation/production company working on it ) First Solo project, Im guessing if it does really well they will make a full Anime series out of it, ( only hopes so! )

= 3 = That'd be nice


I agree. But in order for that, it needs to be a complete success.
