Reminds me a lot of the 2007 previews they did, but less strange and creepy.

if nothing else, we should at least get the first season in HD, right?

The show wasn't produced in HD. So unless they have gone back and redone it, it's just more SD UP.

How many of the "rerun" stations are in HD anyway? Could be wrong, but I'd gotten the impression that this was largely going to be reaired on secondary stations (as a rerun would be expected to be). Here's the schedule. Anyone know enough about Japanese broadcast stations to be able to tell anything?

Well, guess we (or at least someone in Japan) will know something in about 2 1/2 days.

Or not.

Oh how we got epic troll'd by KyoAni early February, it was a complete ****storm everywhere! I think most people have FINALLY understood that until we actually SEE the episode, no one will believe a word kadokawa/kyoani will say about Haruhi S2. I guess I can start rewatching the first season this friday :P.

Anime is not normally rerun on Japanese television, especially a) Not at that time of day and b) Not a non-mainstream series like Haruhi.

That's the justifications I've heard, anyway.

Well, yeah, I get all that, but if it's shown on the Japanese equivalent of a "used to be UPN but CW decided they didn't want" Channel 70+*, then that pretty much kills any chance of a first run for new episodes.

Whenever it's shown.

Hmmm. I'm not sure if that analogy works, though UPN use to be a decent network...it went bad fairly quickly and didn't live all that many year after its flagship show ended (Star Trek: Voyager). Though I don't know Japanese stations...airing on 14 channels and Youtube still seem odd to me...for a rerun that is.

And yet I can still see them doing it.

Logic does not appear to apply to Kadokawa's business decisions.

It's the YouTube thing that keeps me from drinking the "S2 shuffled into S1" Kool-Aid. I can see them simultaneously rerunning and YouTubing a series that has been out on DVD for almost three years (almost two in the States) and has enjoyed a considerable amount of monetary success and exposure already. I don't see them simultaneously first-running and YouTubing a new series when it would so obviously be a cash cow once it comes to DVDs and (nearly as importantly) licensing. I don't think Bandai's going to be as keen on taking the licensing plunge on a series that has already been aired for free on the world's most popular video sharing site by the original broadcaster, months previous. Especially with the current worries over the economy.

Think I mentioned this earlier in the thread but this is why there are 14 stations. As for how many of those actually broadcast in HD, I'm pretty sure TV-tama and Tokyo-MX (confirmed) air stuff in HD.

Side notes (rough t/l):
tvk's listing:
[New program]涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱
天上天下唯我独尊超ポジティブワガママ娘のハルヒに振り回されるキョンとSOS団が繰り広げる、ビミョーに 非日常学園ストーリー!
[The super positive, selfish, self-conceited girl in the whole universe, haruhi abuses Kyou and the SOS dan unfolds. A slightly irregular school story.

So yeah, 's a rerun. No new content. So much for the hopes and dreams of the fans.

Logic does not apply.

Now that would be interesting, Tsundere vs. tsundere...

But this far? Even for them it's too crazy to believe.

The series has Haruhi herself as an "Ultra Director," crazy is all part of the plan.

I am willing to believe that this is really just a re-run. For the most part I agree that it is crazy... but just look at the track record (or should I say troll record).

Also... if they promoted it as the new season of Haruhi (without the cryptic marketing) I am sure it would bring many times more viewers... thus skyrocketing the commercial dollars (I haven't watched an ounce of Japanese television so correct me if I am wrong on that part).

I think they don't care for advertisement money in these midnight anime showings, because the production commitee has to pay for the time slot. Furthermore, if only some changes appear in the first episode when it aired on the first channel, the other showings will get a big audience automatically because somebody will post the information on 2ch.

I think for a how like Haruhi it doesn't matter if they make big advertisements for a second season before or if they suddenly start airing the episodes. Besides, the stuff they did in the last months can be even called advertisement. I personally think, that some new stuff will appear in this rerun.

I think they're relying on word of mouth to advertise here, if there is new content.

2ch would go nuts, and then there's the entire anime blogosphere...
