The North American anime distributor Bandai Entertainment has posted a new video on its ASOS Brigade website, the official unofficial site for the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise. In the “Episode 0.8888” video, the producer of the English version of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya said that “the contract has been signed,” and added that he’s going to “shoot a series of videos to promote the second season DVDs.”
So they will be releasing the “second season” of Haruhi in the US at some point in the near future. That’s great and all, but with 8 of the 14 episodes being essentially the same plot over and over (just google “Endless Eight” if you’re clueless to the nerd-rage) it may be a hard sell.
I personally can’t comment on Endless Eight, as I really haven’t watched past the first episode in Japanese. Whether I buy the DVD or just rock the inevitable DVD-rip torrent, there’s some dubbed Haruhi season two in our future. Hopefully they will keep the same cast as the first season.
I’ll attach the video they are talking about too, but be forewarned, you may throw up in your mouth a little from the bad acting and overall lameness. At least the singing was decent:
