Random Musings – Suzumiya Haruhi S2 and CODE GEASS Finale Airdate

  • The August issue of Newtype that will soon be hitting newsstands is reporting that Suzumiya Haruhi’s second season has finally been confirmed. The official announcement is set to be made on July 7th, 2007, which also happens to be the day of the Japanese Tanabata festival. That might be significant because certain events in the Suzumiya Haruhi novel storyline occur on that day. As of yet, there are no confirmed airdates, but MOON PHASE’s diary entry says that, according to an industry announcement from back in March, Kyoto Animation’s schedule will be Suzumiya Haruhi in Fall/Winter 2007 and a light novel adaptation in Spring 2008, so CLANNAD seems to have been pushed back until Fall 2008. We probably won’t know anything more definitive until the official announcement is made. But, regardless of what airs when, this Fall season is going to be chock-full of sequels and potential blockbusters (Konata certainly seems happy about this announcement).
  • I mentioned yesterday that there will be a one-hour special for CODE GEASS airing on the night of July 28th. That same August issue Newtype has also confirmed that that date will indeed be when the final two episodes of CODE GEASS are airing. For those of you marking your calendars, that’s a Saturday, and I can’t wait to have Gurren Lagann and CODE GEASS together on the same blogging day (even if it’s only once).
  • Speaking of Gurren Lagann, some scans have also popped up of the future versions of the main characters. They’re a little spoilerish, so click at your own peril.

      this is some of the best news i’ve heard recently! Although right now i’m more excited about eps 24 & 25 of code geass.

    • July 6, 2007 at 3:41 pm…..

      all 3 of my favorite shows on the same musing? …this is madness!

      well, i’m happy about haruhi, but at the same time i’m a little sad, this means that my favorite series: FMP will get pushed back even more :’(

      i’m soooo tempted to look at the gurren future images, but i’m not gonna, for now

      haven’t watched code-geass but it’s on my to-do list so that is good news

      Err is just characters design of Simon, Nia and whatishisname … nothing is spoiled.

      LOL. You might have something there. As crappy as the music for the Lucky Star OP is, it still seems to be popular largely because of the dance number. Maybe the next FMP! adaptation can have high-kicking arm slaves in the opening titles. And have Kalinin, Tess, Kurz, and Mao karaoke a different cheesy anime/sentai song each week for the ED. I’d watch it.

      When I say the finale, I mean the end of the first series. The second series will invariably have a different name (if even something as simple as CODE GEASS II).

      did a new FMP announced or something

    • July 6, 2007 at 9:06 pm-Z-

      so disappointing that the rumors of more haruhi are true. *sweat* I’m sure there’s far better stuff they could cough up.

      Actually, I’m not too interested in FMP at the moment. I appreciated Lucky Star since it was new material, but it probably worked better as a 4-koma strip than being an anime. I’d be curious if they can conjure up some new material, but Haruhi/Key shows are pretty good announcements at the moment.

      oh great… another haruhi for me to not understand 1 bit. *marks calendar for code geass final* =D

      Hey Now! Hold Up There! The only mecha series that is allowed to have a dance number in the opening is Overman King Gainer with everybody’s (People’s and Robot’s included) movements all choreagraphed to the music and then suddenly doing The Monkey as imagined in the funny farm known as the great Yoshiyuki Tomino’s brain.

      Oh great, that’s a subtle but massive Gurren Lagann spoiler. So somebody else is gone too…
      Oh, and I doubt Haruhi Season 2 will be as raved about after it’s shown. The author kinda ran out of brilliant parodies in the next few novels. It’s getting too benign in the last few novels too :/
      That coming from a Haruhi-ist.
