Nice Boats are Not Nice

We are SO breaking up, Kadokawa.

It's a tale of nearly legendary status: the final episode of the anime adaptation of eroge School Days featured high schoolers involved in some serious violence, and some real-life student violence took place near that final episode's air date, so the Japanese channel preempted the entire episode in favor of footage of a “nice boat.” The LOL of anime fans could be heard for miles.


But now it's not funny. Kadokawa was supposed to launch The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan, the spinoff of shorts featuring an SD version of their uber-popular heroine, and didn't finish in time-- so they've instead posted a video of some nice boats, according to Moon Phase.


Okay, you know what, Kadokawa? Screw you. You can't seem to give us any information on Haruhi season two, which we've been waiting oh so patiently for since, y'know, Haruhi season one nearly three years ago. And now you can't even get us the cutesy shorts you promised us ages ago?


Seriously, get your act together. And if you haven't matured and learned to keep your promises, I don't want to hear from you!

Yeah, not cool Kadokawa! Making that controversy into a big joke!

Well, the controversy WAS a big joke, that show was hilarious @_@

But THIS! This isn't funny! I want my goddamn Haruhi!

"the controversy WAS a big joke" <-- This

This stuff doesn't bother me anymore. I think I've honestly lost interest in Haruhi 2 at this point.

It is getting harder and harder to keep up any hype for Haruhi season 2. It'll come out same time as Duke Nukem Forever comes out.

On the bright side, at least KyoAni isn't announcing that they're cutting their whole staff... on the other hand, I'm beginning to think it wouldn't matter very much to our Haruhi season 2 prospects if they did.

hahaha... I'm still laughing.

NAISU BOTO!
