According to the August edition of Newtype, and a thread on Animesuki’s forums and 2ch, “Suzumiya Haruhi II” has been officially confirmed.
Haruiists are getting hyped up already and I can’t blame them. I guess the new PSP/PS2/Wii game was sort of a prelude to this, which makes more sense to me than my original assumption that it was announced upon the R1 DVDs getting released in North America. Why would they care about America?
Common sense tells me that we’ll have to wait until CLANNAD is aired and finished until we can see the second season of the Haruhi anime (KyoAni usually takes one project at a time!). So I have a feeling we’re gonna get lots of hype. ^^;;
