Sometimes you just have to accept that a show you love won’t come back. But you can still get excited when it pops back into the limelight with a flurry of recent news and events.
Finally, a new post. Mostly just to celebrate that I have a new banner up finally. I should have had one up last month, but I’ve been kinda sidetracked as I’m sure you can see. I’m pretty happy with it. My original plans for a new banner were entirely different, but then news that Season2 of Haruhi could be hitting us as soon as April started showing up. I’ve been celebrating like a mad man ever since finding this out and even if it turns out the April thing is just a rerun of the first season, won’t stop me from enjoying the celebration.
Expect more posts from me next week, I have 3 half written so it really shouldn’t be all that hard to finish them up and get them out.
Or at least that’s what the US publisher is going to aim at as the target group for the novels. Source.
The novels, will launch in April 2009 with different editions targeted to anime/manga fans and to the broader YA audience. The paperback version, priced at $8.99, features a colorful step-back cover with no manga imagery. The novels will be shelved in the young adult sections of bookstores, according to Joseph Monti, Director of Paperbacks for Little, Brown Books for Young Readers. They will be advertised in the Alloy and dELia*s catalogs, which target tween girls, and promoted on MySpace and Facebook as well as a dedicated website. In addition, the publisher will promote Haruhi launch parties on websites popular with teen girls, with an offer of free gifts for girls who host them.
Some people only get 15 secs of it, Haruhi on the other hand gets a couple years worth. She is even in a US commercial for Tylenol.
After reading about the rumors that Vandread might be getting the rumored sequel, I started thinking about other shows. More specifically shows that have been announced once, and then just disappeared off the face of the planet.
