You know, after the announcement last month that we’d get some decent info in the July Edition of Japanese Magazine Newtype, I was hopeful for something more than this.

Apparently Kyoto Animation are talking in some rather confusing riddles.

I quote our good friends at Sankaku Complex:

Things still seems a little vague, but the production staff are talking about this being more than just a second series, and about wanting to create a new “Haruhi”. There is also talk of “new animation”, and a new character is visible in the character details. 2ch is in melt down over this, so I’m sure more details will emerge soon”

The only concrete info we do have is an image of Haruhi, with long hair(<3), which is at the bottom of this post

According to Canned Dogs, Kyoto has actually scrapped it’s original Season 2 production, and taken an entirely new approach. I dunno what they’re exactly going on myself, my take is simple.

“Haruhi is a major thing for us. We’re going to make sure we recreate a new Haruhi experience, and for that we’re taking more time, and calling it “the new animation” instead of Season 2.”
Of course, I could be wrong. With Kyoto, you never really know what they’re thinking. Anyway… What really interests me is the new hairstyle that Haruhi’s got going. it’s sorta messy. Apparently, the story for this “new animation” has something to do with Haruhi’s dissappearance. I have no idea what’s going, and this is even more random information than the way the episodes Aired OUT of chronological order in Season 1.
