Haruhi-chan Talks Upcoming Web Shorts; Still No Second Season Info

The famously unpredictable series' latest iteration gets a cast and staff.

Haruhi-chan!
Haruhi-chan!
I probably shouldn't have put that in the title, now none of you will read this, right? Well, there it is, guys: still no info on the second season. Insert general rants and ravings here! (Or better yet, do it in the comments.)


Meanwhile, keen-eyed reader Yue spotted new informaion on the upcoming Internet OVA shorts featuring The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya SD characters Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san, currently on the official Haruhi website:


Main Cast:


Whew! No surprises there-- the entire cast is back.


Main Staff:

  • Original Creators – Nagaru Tanigawa and Noizi Itou
  • Manga Creators (of Haruhi-chan and Nyoro~n Tsuruya-san) – Puyo and Eretto, respectively
  • Director – Yasuhiro Takemoto (Full Metal Panic!)
  • Character Design – Futoshi Nishiya
  • Color Design – Naomi Ishida (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
  • Art Director – Mutsuo Shinohara (Clannad)
  • Director of Photography – Ryuuta Nakagami (Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid)

Nothing too startling there, either, although it's interesting that Haruhi's original director Tatsuya Ishihara doesn't appear to be working on the project. (We already knew that though; we had a couple of these staff members announced back in May.)

I've given up on waiting for the second season of Haruhi, so I went on baka-tsuki and read the light novel online which is more or less what this next season is going to be based on. The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. Thanks for the news though! Much appreciated. ^-^

While my OMG-IT'S-HARUHI-MUST-WATCH/READ instincts will take over and lure me in, I'm not too happy that the effort for this OVA isn't being put into something a little more awesome like a second season.

Now if they did a gender-bending OVA, then that's when I start marking calenders and setting alarms.

ComradeCrashon Dec. 18, 2008 at 10:25 a.m.
Oh well....I guess I don't mind waiting for a second season.
RedRoseson Dec. 18, 2008 at 4:34 p.m.

I am not interested in this OVA but I'll watch it regardless because it's Haruhi.

Maybe they are just keeping on the low down. Maybe. Yes. No.
HeeroYuyon Dec. 18, 2008 at 5:05 p.m.
I gave up waiting on Haruhi.... Toradora and Clannad may not be the same thing, but I'm plenty happy.
Sigueon Dec. 18, 2008 at 5:17 p.m.
Boo.
Death_Flameon Dec. 24, 2008 at 4:18 p.m.
