That. It. What.

I just stated the facts: Kadokawa has referred to it as a "rebroadcast" from the beginning, and the 14 new episodes WERE broadcast in between the 14 old ones.

It's not a true "second season" because it's not even a continuation... the new episodes merely fill in the gaps. It'd be better to refer to it as "Haruhi 2009" or the "new season".

I'm in Japan right now! Yay~

...I just found a hard copy of the nine novels, as well as the DVDs for Endless Eight and the character CDs. Except in real life.

Ooh, luckyy.
I've always wanted to go there, but considering I fail epicly at Japanese I can't really go...
I've always wondering what the actual novels looked like..

They're really small, about three inches by three inches and in thickness about the thickness of a general thumb. Also, it's read right-to-left and up-down.

I talked to a Japanese girl and apparently while most people enjoy the character songs, they're also seen as marketing tactics. Apparently even this girl, who was a hardcore fan enough to sit through Endless Eight, wasn't aware that there were new character songs.

Eh? Amazon.jp lists it as 5.9 ◊ 4.3 ◊ 0.6 inches. That's smaller than the US hardback version, but not by much (8.3 ◊ 5.6 ◊ 0.9 inches) - I actually think the Yen Press versions are a bit oversized, at least in the paperback.

(Also, I'm not at all surprised about viewing the character singles as part of a marketing campaign - I honestly have never thought otherwise of such things, though I appreciate them and usually enjoy them for the series I get them for.)

I echo keri's sentiment. I saw them when I was in Japan last year, and they were nowhere near that small. Most light novels are A6 in size, which puts them at around 4.13in x 5.83in. Did you see them in a general-purpose bookstore or one focused on otaku-interests?

Sorry, I didn't read the whole topic (understandable), and I heard that the second season OST was available as a bonus in the limited edition of the second season DVDs. Is this true?

The Background music is available in the limited edition special disc of every Japanese DVD release. With the DVDs released in 2006-2007, they were tracks combined with part of the radio broadcasts from the online radio. With the current DVDs being released, they are in a video format with still pictures from the episodes as well as some background information about the music being displayed. They are also coupled with a couple of pieces involving Taniguchi's seijuu on the current DVDs. So far the only chance to purchase any BGM that is not coupled with the limited edition DVDs is coming next month when the Vanishment OST is released on January 27th for 3300 yen on a two disc set. Hope this answers your question.

I made some comparison shots of the 1st light novel on my (German) website:

@ultimatemegax
These videos are in PCM 2.0, so that they have at least the same quality as a CD. I plan to rip them and create my own OST when I find the time^^.

They have a really good sound quality when ripped is what I've found. I'm only using these as a portable way to listen to the OST, so not sharing, but Kousaki-san did a wonderful job with the music so far and I hope some of the variations are on the final DVD. (I can't wait until Monday when I get it as a late Christmas present)

Also, apologies for not putting this in the earlier post, but the cover for the Vanishment OST has been released:

Since I cannot go back to sleep this morning and it's too early to open presents at my house, I will open a present for you guys (OST titles).

Spoiler:


There's some preliminary information about the title of the theme song, but I'm going to wait until I can get some better confirmation on it. Minori-san recorded the song this week, so there may be some validity for this information. An interesting fact is that Tanigawa actually wrote the lyrics to the song.

Everything in your post is awesome, from the news of TWO bookended Itsumo remixes (yaaay), a track titled "je te veux", and the fact that Tanigawa wrote the theme song.

I'm so fucking psyched for this.
