From the “(beaten like a) red-headed stepchild” bureau of news so old it’s petrified, word is in at the official Haruhi site as of 4:00 AM this morning that a “Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu new animefication” is planned for next year. Moon Phase speculates that the copyright listing of “2007, 2008, 2009” might imply that the series will start in the fall of ’08 and run for two seasons into the spring of ’09; we’ll be keeping a corner of an eye on this as more information comes to light. In other anime news, Moon Phase reports today that Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is getting a third season. No details have been released yet, but are expected to appear shortly at the show’s official site. (no more)
