Haruhi S2 cancelled, new Haruhi in the works

As quoted off Canned Dogs:

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu new animation

Pics from Newtype
The reason why they cancelled 2nd season and started “Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu new animation” instead was because they felt that they couldn’t just do a 2nd season and that they wanted to do a completely new “Haruhi” again. They’re still deciding on the concept for the new anime and how it’ll be like and having meetings for how the story will go.

It’s still probably going to be about disappearance, with those character designs that are shown.

What? Wow, that was interesting.

Checking out the picture on zepy’s blog reveals a long haired Haruhi (yay!!), a much amicable Kyon looking at Yuki with a Santa hat on her head, and Santarina Mikuru getting glomped by Haruhi. Looks pretty interesting, but I wonder if it’s a promo stunt again, since I don’t really see much changes.

Perhaps they decided that adapting 100% from the source material is a bit of hassle and maybe they’re taking the basic storyline, but changing it to a more conventional one? Just my conjecture at this point.

Anyways, long hair Haruhi looks 35% hotter to me. I sure hope we see that in the new work. I’m such a sucker for long hair.

    lol Nozila, that was pretty damn fast. As for the blog…I’m hoping whatever they do with Haruhi…is good. I hope that season 2 is as great as the first. TMoHS is one of my all time favorites, so I’m sure whatever they do will be fine by me.

    lol haruhi in 1st season had both long hair and short hair
    in the first episode she had long hair until kyon talked to her about her hairstyles
    but yea.. its gay that they would make us wait for the 2nd season, then completely cancel it and start a new thing
    im not totally against this “new haruhi” thing but it sucks that they’d just cancel this and make a totally new one..
    its already been 2 years since season 1, these people are way overdue for a new thing.

    I’m just happy that after the long wait, we no no longer have just a picture of Yuki and a Vanishing Page! It’s FINALLY coming out! And what’s better? The light novels are coming out in America! They start in April, and I plan to buy every single one of them, as well as the manga and DVDs. I’ve already started collecting figures (Asakura sits on my shelf, ready to kill my mp3 player as we speak.) and I’m going to go insane come April!
