It&squot;s a "tease." Get it?
It's a "tease." Get it?
Honestly, I kind of ignored it when The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya recently hit the cover of Newtype along with word about “something happening.” After all, Newtype is a Kadokawa-owned publication that publishes Haruhi stuff all the time, and Haruhi has a terrible, terrible track record of its “big announcements” being, well, dumb.
 
Especially after all the teases, starts, stops, and tears that went along with Haruhi second season, which turned out to be almost entirely consisting of the same episode eight times, it's amazing to me that fans are still (cautiously) excited about what might be going on.
 
The general consensus I've seen consists of the following possibilities:
  • Announcing a third season and/or that the second season will be longer than fans anticipated (I know a few people who think that the E8 saga is evidence of this)
  • More of Haruhi-chan and Tsuruya-san on YouTube
  • Something completely minor, innocuous, or stupid
  • Something even dumber, like an Endless Eight movie (I'm still pretty sure that guy was joking, though)

 
A couple of possibilities I haven't seen mentioned but that seem potentially plausible to me..

  • News on the tenth volume of the light novel series, which has been put off for over two years now but no one seems to remember anymore
  • Some other spinoff-- a new video game, manga, web series, etc.

 
Among the bloggers chit-chatting on the matter: Zone Otaku, Otaku Review, Sankaku Complex
 
Right-o, then, who wants to start making bets about what it is, if anything?

I'm ready for news about the Endless 8 movie. :)
 
It will probably be a video game or an announcement that another announcement is coming.... something largely pointless.

I'm not willing to speculate, but I will say one thing: Don't fuck with me, Kadokawa. I know where you live.

If that`s true (which i`m doubting too) i`m seriously reconsidering trying to sell special S.O.S club pitchforks and torches for the angry mob at Kadokawa`s door lol
 
I`m not big on the speculating either i can`t take another disappointment it probably just something minor.

Lacking anything obvious for announcing, this.

@Kelleth: Is exactly what I said it is.

See how that worked? I quoted you, said something, and then I used the term "this" to refer to your comment. It's a very common shortening tactic on these wild and vast Internets. You should familiarize yourself with it to avoid future confusion for yourself.
