i watched the last 2 episodes again.... and i reckon the whole reason behind haruhi bringing kyon back to the real world after being kissed is that he said the world is developing in an interesting manner or something to that effect. So haruhi sees more potential in adventure by staying in this world and not trying to imagine something that may or may not be more interesting...

11-6-06 (5:20AM EDT) Haruhi Suzumiya Omnimedia Negotiations Underway For NA Market Now
Swinging by the Kadokawa Herald Pictures booth at TIFFCOM 2006 ANS was able to confirm licensing negotiations for The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya TV animation in the North American market are now ongoing among several USA-based distribution companies. The Kadokawa representative we spoke to could not confirm any complications to a US release stemming from any existing trademark issues related to Playboy and bunnies. A deal could be closed in several months' time. Besides the existing animation the Americans are interested in adapting the the manga and novels for the world's largest English Language market as well. The entire omnimedia product (anime, novels, manga, etc..) could be sold as a package deal to one company although the liklelyhood of that being the end result is currently unknown.
At least something is moving...
But now I'm a bit envious... in my country all the publishers seem really scared about any attempt to gain SHnY license (probably because of the cost )

I'm actually hoping ADV doesn't get this, because I'd prefer this show to reach the maximum number of people possible by appearing on television, namely Adult Swim. Geneon or Funimation would do, as they seem to have better relations with AS.

If we're talking about TV broadcast, then hope for FUNimation. Geneon only has their shows broadcast only if the episodes are already released on DVD.

Not sure if this show if relevant to FUNimation's interests. Or Geneon's, as I heard they were getting out of the licensing business. I'd say ADV is most likely to end up with this, as they would have to cash.

It's whoever bids the most money, and I hope it's FUNimation! And whoever gets it, I hope to GOD that they get Kadokawa to let them release the broadcast order.

Whoever gets it better not ruin it for those who haven't seen it yet (Such as bad dubs...) and should release it in broadcast order. Now I watch it in chronological order just to make more sense of it (and to help it coinside with the novels) but for those who haven't seen it, I hope that they get to experience it in the original order.

I hope not, because besides Eva I'm having trouble thinking of ADV shows that get on AS, was Milk Chan one of them? Also, why is it outside of Funimation's interests? They bid on a lot of different shows, and this is of course the "Next big thing" from Japan, with record setting DVD sales and a huge built in American fanbase thanks to Youtube. Hell, Funimation even bought the rights to School Rumble, and I'd say that's far less likely to suceed in this market compared to Haruhi.

SHnY would fit in to any of those companies' "market focus" (science fiction, romance, comedy). Geneon has done quite well packaging Kamichu! ... Funimation's work on Negima (as broken as that series was) has been excellent in marketing, packaging, and even the dub (from the episode I saw at least). ADV's packaging and encoding vary. As for my *want*, I'd say either Funimation or Geneon.

However, ADV got that infusion of cash from the JP venture cap group, so they may have the bargaining edge.

Or that particular event is to be understood more in the viewpoint of kyon, in which he does something to achieve some result. Haruhi is flexible enough to suffer through plot holes. If anything the nastier closed plot space occurs in the form of a question like so: "How did all-woman mikuru/everyone else undestand haruhi enough to suggest a very specific clue to kyon. "

Anyways I need haruhi like a drug now. sigh.

I have a question. Does anyone know if there is an excerpt out there about the author of the series, where he talks about various things such as about the characters, the series, or other stuff like that?

Congrats Woland! You are Mr. 2000th post in this thread!

Otherwise, it is great news! Now we can start dreaming of a second season spec thread!

Now back to my Snoopy dance!

Don't get too excited. Remember the number one rule when it comes to second seasons: "It doesn't exist until the anime production company says it does". In other words, all announcements are merely speculations until they're official.

Well, there has been a lot of published interviews with Tanigawa Nagaru (I'm sure The Sneaker did a few). The official Haruhi fanbook, for example, contains long interviews for all the main voice actors, staffs, the original character designer, Itou Noizi, as well as one between Tanigawa-sensei and Gatou Shouji, the author of "Full Metal Panic!". All aspects of the series, the history, the anime adaptation process, etc. are all discussed.

...Yeah, it's all in Japanese, I know. Don't hit me.

Juz a short note abt the title Endless Eight. Yes it may be translated to sound nicer English wise, but it is actually more like Endless August. That's what I drew from the kanji.
