The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya season 2 US release details

Well, it’s about time. We finally have a US release date for  the Season 2 box set and it is August 17, 2010.

It will include both English and Japanese voices, English ssubtitles, location scouting videos, Behind the scenes of a music video by Aya Hirano, promo videos, commercials, all the episodes of the Adventures of the ASOS Brigade, and a CD with the opening and ending.

MSRP is $64.98, but we all know it will be cheaper on most sites anyways. Hell, Amazon already has it listed for $44.99

This is a day 1 purchase for me, thats for sure. And it seems there are plenty of people excited for the release on facebook and a couple of the forums I have been on, even if Endless eight is on there. But, we will find out how many people actually buy it come August.

The Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya Licensed By Bandai

More great Haruhi news announced today. Bandai has licensed The Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya for US release later this year.

Bandai has once again proven to be great to me.

Currently the only place it is announced for theatrical release is Hawaii. Not really sure if this is the only state, but if it is, that sucks.

Haruhi Has Now Invaded Crunchyroll

Well, now Haruhi is available to all without the need  to steal it like many people will surely do anyways. Crunchyroll has added the original Haruhi anime to it’s line-up.

While this isn’t much help for me (I already have all the DVDs) it is helpful for those who haven’t seen it and are trying to save money. Hopefully this will get more people excited about the coming DVD release of Season 2.

Currently the first 4 episodes are  up, the rest will be up later next week.

True Haruhi Season 2 Cast Announcement

Well, I guess I was wrong about the cast. But I don’t mind. I enjoyed the original Haruhi dub and definitely liked the original English Yuki more.

For those who don’t want to watch the video and never saw season 1, here is a list of the VAs for main characters.

Kyon- Crispin Freeman

Haruhi- Wendee Lee

Yuki- MIchelle Ruff

Mikuru- Stephanie Sheh

Itsuke- Johnny Yong Bosch

SO yeah, even though Cristina Vee won’t be Haruhi, I am still happy since I know the dub will be good. But after all this, I wonder if Bandai will be using the English version of the opening that Cristina did or or if they are just using that as part of the promotional videos.

Haruhi Season 2 English Cast Confirmation?

Well, if the video above is true the cast for the females are as follows

Haruhi Suzumiya – Cristina Vee

Mikuru Asahina – Karrie Shirou

Yuki Nagato – Gina Li

Though, Gina and Karrie may just be people filling in as cosplayers, so they may or may not be the Voice actresses for those 2 characters. I can’t guarantee Cristina either.

But, either way, they sounded decent, but I will be royally pissed if Crispin Freeman (Kyon) and Johnny Yong Bosch (Itsuke Koizumi) are replaced. Just saying Bandai may have to watch out if something happens to them being in the cast.

Cristina Vee Replacing Wendee Lee As Haruhi For Season 2?

What do you think, they block out her face, but the hair and skin tone matches Cristina’s, so it seems that way. Not that I would mind, I mean, she has an amazing  voice thats for sure. Just listen to her sing the Haruhi season 2 opening below.

While I will miss Wendee Lee if she is replaced, I will be happy that they got another quality VA. But, if they replace Crispin Freeman, then somebody’s ass will be beatin’ quite hard.
