New Haruhi Suzumiya Anime Series Details Revealed

"The official Japanese website for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya television anime series announced the details of the latest anime project based on the Haruhi Suzumiya science fiction comedy light novels. On Tuesday, the site "disappeared" and displayed a false error message that read, "The page cannot be found." A second message appeared over the first message that announced a program was starting up and prompted the user for a password. If the user enters "K," "N," "S," "A," and "K" (the initials of the family names of the members of SOS brigade, the main characters in the series) into the password fields and selects the radio button to the right, a fake xterm terminal session opens. A series of messages from "YUKI.N" confirms that the key to the "emergency escape program" has been found and asks for a final confirmation before starting the program. Hitting the enter key will open a new page that shows the character Yuki and lists the production credits of the new series."

"The page reveals that the previously announced second anime season of Haruhi Suzumiya has been "cancelled" and replaced with a new animation project. Yasuhiro Takemoto (Full Metal Panic! The Second Raid, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu, Lucky Star) will direct the new project, and Kyoto Animation will still be animating as it did for the first anime project. As in the previous anime project, the fictional "leader" of the new anime project is the character Haruhi Suzumiya herself. The "disappearance" of the website at 4:00 a.m. on December 18 (Japan Standard Time) is a reference to the pivotal date in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the fourth volume in the light novel series and an apparent indication of which novel plot the anime project will adapt."
