Her powers doesn't 'control', she makes it happen and it happens 'naturally'. It will not make someone go against their will, it will create situations and events, or form outcomes where people would respond naturally, therefore not a form of direct manipulation. The outcome is similar to a controlled outcome, but the fact she doesn't do it makes it different from truly controlling.

A little complexed and the explanation lies on edges of black and white, like most other stuff that happens in the Haruhiverse.

Just felt like typing something lol, looking forward to full blown, over sophisticated, complexed and clever debates that will arise when Season 2 comes.

Hoping that the old group would gather again and have some clever discussions instead of the 'new batch' that's just complaining about trainwrecks, plot holes that weren't even there.
See, the deal there is that they needed to strike while the iron was hot. Going by the trend I see in anime lately, if they had immediately followed Haruhi up less than one year after it ended with a sequel then Haruhi would have still be in favour and the hippest thing on the block, thus probably carrying Haruhi Season 2 through on a wave of popular support. Now it's been a while and popular opinion and the backlash and trolling that always comes when franchises get to popular have now started to swing against the franchise. Kaisos' "No new content" complaint about Kyoani's handling of the franchise (or lack thereof) which is damn well true if you ask me isn't helping matters either. Without any momentum Haruhi's relevance and popularity has sort of been overtaken a bit by newer franchises. That ties into what Cats mentioned about some people only being in the discussion for the popularity, and if it's no longer as popular, many of them might not even show up. Of course you'll always have the mainstays and such, but not the taggers on.

I'd like to comfort you, but I do indeed think it's going to be a totally different atmosphere this time around. Sorry.

That would be better for a third or fourth season (depending on where the second season ends) Having the new season based on book 9 and 10...or depending on what happens in ten...book 11 where Haruhi recreates the world....again...to reset the calender

(Remember, the Mayan calender has cycles, therefore this is a turned over. The legends are for renewal, not the end of the world.))

That theory is stupid and is wrong.

I see that we are unfamiliar with the concept of a joke. Do you want me to explain?

I'm not being serious either...

Look, it's hard to detect facetiousness on the Internet. Let's just leave it at that.

Wait, people follows her? Haruhi could have been using her powers to control them.

Damn dude, I don't know. I'm a monogamist, and if I like a girl not even Haruhi can take her from me.

If a girl like Haruhi liked it, I'd probably say yes, date a bit, feel the pain, and get dumped.

Someone named lllwtflll claims to have read the NewType article, the one that had those new character designs I guess, and says that it gives a release date of early 2009 for Haruhi S2, and says that the rest of the character designs will be revealed in December. I really don't want to spread rumors... but can anyone confirm or deny this?

EDIT: Kaisos Erranon, thank you very much for clearing that up. I'm editing this post so I say directly in it: This is a false rumor. (So that, hopefully, I didn't end up spreading it.)

Ah, the original discussion where lllwtflll said that is at http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/bbs/...hlight=#627269 , but no one really questions what's being said there, so I'm not sure what to think. x.x
No, he's a liar. The July issue said nothing about that. That rumor has been going on for a while.

Also, Vol. 10 is not the last book. Not been officially confirmed yet.

We are assuming it as, The title "Astonishment" kinda give the feeling Haruhi finds out about her powers...

Some of us are assuming "sliders" to enter the equation. As for Haruhi gaining knowledge of her powers...perhaps she does...in one of the two worlds.

One world is destroyed...the survivors (if any) become sliders? Move on the Book 11.

"We"? Sounds like you're assuming something else too.

This, exactly.

Also, who says the titles actually have to mean anything? The only ones that do are 1 and 4...

I'm not sure if you have all seen these, but these videos seem to be legitimate teaser videos of the second series of the show, but for some reason it is in live action.

If I am wrong, then sorry but I am confused as to whether it is true or not, because if it is then why is nothing being talked about here?
