So, what happened here on the conflicting news? I'm not really sure-- the information about Haruhi-chan was from a radio interview with the staff of Ga-Rei Zero, although in retrospect, it's not like Ga-Rei is being done by KyoAni...the only overlap I know of in the staff there is presumably Yuki Nagato / Kagura Tsuchimiya seiyuu Minori Chihara. So, maybe she just hadn't gotten to record for the show yet? Hard to say.
Anyway, it's good to know we'll actually be getting a Haruhi anime soon, even if it's not season two!
