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.

My Thoughts On: Arakawa Under The Bridge

Pictures will be added later.

Arakawa Under The Bridge is this seasons weirdest show. Everyone on their is mentally disabled I think and the setting is under a bridge. But, it all works out and I found it to be quite funny, if not mostly because of the WTF factor of the show.

Right from the beginning, you meet the main character Kou Ichinomiya. His father taught him as a child to never be in debt to someone. Though, his methods were rather different. From the screwed up childhood, he learned how to live for himself. But soon, this fear of being in debt to someone has landed him as the lover of some weird girl who lives under a bridge. Nothing in this show has made sense so far, but that is why it is so great.

Throughout the first episode, I laughed my ass off at the randomness. The first scene has our main character wearing no pants because he was attacked by children. No explanation is given as to why they attacked him, it just happened.  Or the girl who swears she is from Venus. It all adds up be great.

Artwork is definitely something you would expect from Shaft. It’s kind of a mix of Maria Holic and Sayonara Zetsubous Sensei art wise. Not to fancy, but some unique choices for different designs. Though, you will notice some similar movements to Itoshiki from Zetsubou Sensei. But I don’t mind if it is kinda reused because they only use it for one time and it is used correctly.

The VAs do quite well, even though there were only 4 total in the first episode. When Kou is surprised, you can tell. And the relatively monotone sound of Nino shines through to give her that carefree feeling. There wasn’t much background music, not that it is needed since this is a show based around the weird characters instead of music. If you want a music anime, watch K-ON!! instead.

Overall, this is a pretty good show, and if you want something to truly start off the season, I recommend this. It is one of the better first epis this season too, which is a good thing.

Score:

4.5/5

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.
