New Haruhi Episode Currently Airing – EVERYBODY PANIC

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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 12:27 pmdmo

    Thought they wouldn’t show new stuff until after the original 13 lol. Well this is a nice surprise.

  • May 21, 2009 at 12:29 pmka

    what’s so good about this series, anyways?

  • May 21, 2009 at 12:31 pmSadmask


  • May 21, 2009 at 12:33 pmMaximilian

    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)

  • May 21, 2009 at 12:35 pmman or astro-man

    best thing I’ve heard all day . . .

  • May 21, 2009 at 12:35 pmblinx01

    Great news but I bet loads of people will come away feeling let down.
    I mean there’s no way the series can live upto the hype created over these last few years.
    Time will tell I guess.

    blinx01, As long at they don’t mess up Disappearance, it will surely live up to the hype.

  • May 21, 2009 at 12:37 pmFunny08

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:05 pmbaka~

    haruhi vs k-on!

    the popularity contest begins!

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:05 pmFX102

    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:28 pmTadloS


    What is K-On! ? I suddenly got amnesia after Haruhi episode…

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:34 pmlavarock

    Goodness… I have been waiting for Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody for almost 3 years… that’s was favorite part of the Haruhi novels for me.

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:38 pmdesho?

    I lol’d.

    Thought it was a troll.

    Then shat bricks.

    I’m still waiting for the 2nd season.

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:47 pmthenightsshadow

    *sigh* I’m not buying the hype. Guys (and gals), it’s just Haruhi.

    What the fuck? This is by far the worst way to show a new episode finally… I bet barely anyone actually watched it.

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:57 pmDelwack

    Yes! I’m almost afraid it won’t live up to expectations though.

  • May 21, 2009 at 1:58 pmviral

    Isn’t it… Fake?

  • May 21, 2009 at 2:12 pmno-nick

    OMG … need subs fast

    QUOTE I’VE READ HERE, to think about.

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

    good day

    I for one welcome the return of our God.

  • May 21, 2009 at 2:58 pmMeery

    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!

    Some troll managed to trick me again =)

  • May 21, 2009 at 3:35 pmCT

    watched it on niconico :) but they already taken it down for some reason it only air within a preiod of time….3years back haruhi look kinda chibi ><

  • May 21, 2009 at 3:56 pmkrazykei

    I’m confused, is the second airing of the show in chronological order? or are they going with the original airing order?

  • May 21, 2009 at 4:01 pmsue

    lookin forward to thiis!!

  • May 21, 2009 at 4:09 pmlol

    Too bad it looks like shit

  • May 21, 2009 at 4:22 pmEziibella


  • May 21, 2009 at 4:51 pmMelchior

    The animation looks kind of…half-assed. Like the later two seasons of Minami-ke compared to the first season kind of half-assed.

  • May 21, 2009 at 4:54 pmSean


  • May 21, 2009 at 4:56 pmc00lpuPPy

    from the screen shots, animation quality does not look as good as old.

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:09 pmDiego

    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:11 pmMaximilian

    They are showing a chronological order consisting of first and second season, so new episodes will not come week after week :P

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:18 pmevil_paladin


    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:21 pmjaalin

    the crappy shots are due to the poor raw quality – if there’s an HD raw to come out eventually it should look much nicer!

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:21 pmNaqel


  • May 21, 2009 at 5:27 pmithekro

    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:30 pmSam

    I hope a HD raw comes out. This is too awesome.

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:46 pmMaximilian

    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).

  • May 21, 2009 at 5:55 pmConfusedGirl29

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAT?! I think I misread something *rereads and then faints*… *wakes up to finish this stupid post*

  • May 21, 2009 at 6:09 pmkeikakudoori

    Yes! Haruhi is back!

  • May 21, 2009 at 6:15 pmJacky


  • May 21, 2009 at 6:25 pmPaul

    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 6:39 pmDragonite88

    Yes cant wait lol.

  • May 21, 2009 at 6:57 pmpenguintruth

    The glorious Second Coming of Haruhi!

    I’m pretty jazzed about it.

  • May 21, 2009 at 6:58 pmmahaha

    http://www.animetake.com to download this legit, full. no subs yet.

  • May 21, 2009 at 7:34 pmFaiaa

    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 10:46 pmmegalith


    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.

  • May 21, 2009 at 10:53 pmDagmar

    My Princess has returned!! I watched the first series just because of her character, Must… see… soon…, maybe I’ll just have invent that time machine.

  • May 21, 2009 at 11:11 pmvolcrim

    Wow, new episode was awesome. Close to some of the best of Season 1 imo

  • May 22, 2009 at 1:46 amneedinfo

    Does anyone know when and how the next new episode is going to be aired??
