Canned Dogs has a summary of Newtype's fabled March issue, which everyone was excited about because it was supposed to have more info on the next season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya...until we had adleak fail.
The basic summary? The magazine is vague, and never even explicitly states that the April airing (whose mention on the cover was mistaken for the second season's start date) is a repeat, as Kadokawa came out and said. Or...DID they? Well, we all remember that they did, but now the article that originally said so has been altered to use similar vague wording to the magazine's.
Zepy offers the following possibilities and observation:
1) Repeat of season 1 in April, season 2 continues immediately after
2) Repeat season 1 but with new episodes shuffled in
3) Season 2 starts in April
4) Repeat telecast of season 1 and no season 2
If you pick the right possibility and place your bets now, you can claim to have been able to see what Kadokawa was trying to do all along and become a superstar and all will worship you. If you pick the wrong one, all will ridicule and you will tear up all the haruhi novels and send them to the wife of Kyoani’s chairman.
My optimistic side votes 1, and my pessimistic side votes 4. How about you?
