Oh yea, you heard me. The first episode of long awaited, mistakenly self-trolled, probably way overhyped anime to end all anime Suzumiya Haruhi is currently airing on Teletama, entitled “Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody”. Suffice to say, 2ch is going crazy, and I have crapped my pants.

Stay tuned for updates.


  1. Hell yeah! I have been keeping track of this since the “accidental” release of the episode list back then. At last we got the new series, however we will not have a new episode until after 4 weeks( since there is mysterique sign and Lone Island 1+2)


  3. Finally- best news Ive heard all year- make that for the past few years. I have been waiting so long since they first advertised the new season so many months. . .years .. ago.

  4. Does this mean I’m gonna have to re-purchase my DVD boxset of the series? Or will Bandai have the decency to release a “Lost Episodes” Collection?

    Oh well, happy times either way.

  5. QUOTE I’VE READ HERE, to think about.

    “Finally- best news Ive heard all year- make that for the past few years.” ..really??


    and here’s mine “Haruhi has got one BIG ASS HEAD, even fo anime standards”
    good day

  6. for a moment there, i think i just died. and immediately revived. can someone please pinch me, i think i’m dreaming. damn. now i can’t get any sleep, can’t think straight, until this gets SUBS!!

  7. CNN Reports: Worst Water Shortage in the History of Earth

    A world-wide water shortage has been confirmed as otakus across the globe flock to laundry mats en mass after having crapped their pants. Governments are expected to address the problem with swift and sure military force.

  8. Aww, younger Haruhi was cute. The voices seemed consistent to 3 years ago (does Tomokazu have another voice? =P ), but I think the characters looked different at times, no surprise. Great ED as well – I’m still seizure free!

    Can somebody call up the devil and ask if hell has frozen over? Also please keep a watch outside of your window for flying pigs.
    Its here at last, at long last :’) The 3 year wait better have been worth it… then again anything with Haruhi-sama in it is worth it!

    Back to spreading the word of Haruhiism I spose then…

  10. The overall animation quality is better than those screencaps suggest. I’d say on par with, or ever so slightly better than, the first season.

    That might disappoint fans who were expecting a huge spike in animation quality three years on, but I for one am glad to see a little consistency.

    If that is true, why show “Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody” first. Chronologically, it should come after Melancholy if i’m not mistaken.

    Furthermore, did Kyoani animate this season as well?
    Doesn’t look like their production at all.

  12. They’ve been showing Haruhi episodes since the first week of April. This is the eighth week, the perfect place for “Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody” chronologically. We expect the next new episodes will air in four weeks time after three older episodes. we expect there to be at least three, maybe as many as five new episodes in a row after four weeks followed by Episode 00 (the Mikuru movie), Live A Live, and the Space Game/battle episode.

  13. >evil_paladin
    Actually, The Boredom occurs between Melancholy( happens in May) and Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody( 7th of June-Tanabata), so chronologically it’s in correct place.

    And yes, this is Kyoani. However, there is the issue that it’s their first time doing two anime at the same time( K-on! and Haruhi).

  14. >Mazimilian
    I have a feeling that they’ve been working on the second season for the past three years (two at least) so they probably have at least enough episodes finished, or close to finished, to show before K-ON! ends. So technically, they probably aren’t really animating two at the same time if my theory is correct.

  15. It’s also because the second season is being done by a different director then the first. So the animation will have a different direction in the style, not to mention it’s been 3 years, plus the pic of Haruhi up there for one is when she’s 3 years younger, so it’s gonna be significantly different.

  16. For those who understands chinese, heres the whole schedule:

    not really… Clannad AS and Munto(the long ass title that I wouldn’t dare to type even though I typed something much longer than the title I was avoiding.)

    I think they can do it. Munto and AS didn’t have quality drops that I have noticed.

  18. Been waiting for years..

    The animation of the first series is better. Probably because of he colors.. It’s like bright unlike the first series that’s kinda shaded a bit.

  19. So calm and yet my body tickles every single inches… my stomach is giving me strange sensations…
    do not panic it’s going to be ok…

    /tears of joy

    Now the question… wait for the final episode to watch them peacefully, it will hurt for sure (waiting until the last one) or enjoy them as they come?
