My statement served two purposes: 1. It references a commonly said line in the episodes (and wordplay is a pleasure to perform) and 2. A realization that this release date would give Bandai just over two months from the end of dubbing to get the discs physically made in addition to shipping to distributors and from distributors to their stores (both online and offline). With their past history of delays and the necessity of this series to sell well, the odds are against them.

Granted, they could have delayed work on other releases to quicken the process of this release to get it out while people still have news about the movie fresh in their memory. I would appreciate the release on that date, but until August 17th comes and the set is in someone's hands, there will be doubt of release on this date.

The English voice of Haruhi will still be Wendee Lee. Cristina Vee is serving in the same role that Patricia Lee served in 2007: Haruhi in the ASOS Brigade shorts.

Bear in mind the link you supplied was from Amazon. As far as I'm aware this isn't an official announcement from Bandai (at least I haven't seen anything on ANN or AoD (or Mania as it is called now)). Amazon is known for posting unconfirmed released dates in the past so this may be just another slip-up.

If so, though, I also find it odd that Aya Hirano is the only voice actor listed.

Not really, The Amazon listing for the complete set for Lucky star only has the Japanese cast listed but it's dubbed and subbed.

lol. Maybe I'll write a blog entry celebrating the one year anniversary of the endless recursion of time.

Thanks for the welcome!

Anyway, even as big a critic of Endless Eight as I was, I still think that the Haruhi boxset is going to sell great at that price (Sigh alone is worth that price, arguably). Which is good, since a lot more than just Haruhi is riding on it from what I've read...

The ASOS Brigade posted some of the details about the Season 2 set on their Facebook page.

It is $64.98 retail price and will contain 4 DVDs and 1 CD. Release date is still 08/17/10. The DVDs will be both subbed and dubbed with the usual interactive menus. They have included:
CMs (You'll really enjoying watching these )
Location Scouting videos (which are really nice to see how accurate Kyoto Animation was)
Behind the Scenes of Aya Hirano's Music Video (for Super Driver. Side note: the music video footage stops after the fourth segment)
The Endless Eight Prologue (which was on the 5.285714 limited edition disc and is three still images with Kyon narrating the prologue from novel 5)
Special Event video (not 100% sure on this)
and the Adventures of the ASOS Brigade episodes on the DVDs.

On the CD will be Super Driver and Tomare! No details on whether the non-vocal tracks will be included.

The bonus features are really nice to get a good view of Nishinomiya (the city where Tanigawa-sensei is from and the basis for the animation) and to see the progression of Hirano's song from the PV to the release day. I've already pre-ordered my copy (regardless of the fact that I have the R2s) and I'd say it's still worth it. Amazon.com will guarantee that the set will get to you on release day (if you live in the continental United States) for $50.

Any news for the UK release though? If not, I suppose I'll get the American version...

From Kyon's Twitter:

No rest for the wicked. Back at Bang Zoom working on Haruhi-chan! Time for more Kyon-ing…
6:29 PM Jun 17th via Twitterrific

Apparenly we're getting a Haruhi-chan dub as well! I know people always say that subs are best, but I, for one, really enjoy the Dub of the Haruhi series and am very anxious to hear how it turns out.

45 USD before shipping for the whole of S2? That does sound like a good deal. Depending on whether you count Endless Eight of course.

If you don't care to count Endless Eight, here are a few couple of ways to still justify the $60 $45 price tag:

- Pretend you're paying extra for the music CD!
- Pretend you're paying for a limited-edition Haruhi Suzumiya beverage coaster!
- Pretend that you have to pay for the "bonus" features!
- Pretend you're paying for super-deluxe shipping . . . they've added extra packing material in the form of a spare DVD!
- Pretend you're cool by being an early-adopter of the next greatest thing in anime!
- Pretend that you are a man/woman/child of Anime JesusGod(dess) and that the extra money you're paying is your tithe to the Lord GodHaruhi.
- Pretend you're going on the Haruhi Suzumiya Diet. Buy her stuff, and you won't be able to afford to eat as much!
- Pretend you're working for the procurement office of the CIA and you're paying for a super-secret torture device that is being included in every box of Haruhi Suzumiya 2009!

With that being said, I wonder how reliable that drop date is . . . because I'm tempted to pre-order and I'd rather not do it if they're going to kick the date down the road by several months.

Fine by me, I was probably going to have to wait until then to buy my copy anyway.
