So I was on the official KimiNozo mixi community all morning trying to find out whether or not the story was true. But thanks to Ramblings of DarkMirage and Moonphase — note that Moonphase did not have anything concerning the report on their site until just a half hour ago from writing this entry — I was able to finally confirm that yes, age-soft’s Kimi ga Nozomu Eien will have another animated project in the future. Only this time it will focus on Haruka Suzumiya and her ending route. Apparently, the announcement came during an event celebrating Mitsuki Hayase’s birthday :3 … Yes! But as ecstatic as I am over hearing the news, I’m now beginning to hear rumors that the project may not be in correlation with the events in the original game. It may instead relate more towards the ~special FanDisk~ put out in 2004. Hopefully more details will start to pour in as the days go by.
We now live in a solar system of just 8 planets…
Announced earlier at the CharaHobby 2006 Show, Galaxy Ange-lune — the new series in the Galaxy Angel franchise — will begin its TV Tokyo broadcast debut on October 1st at 2:00am. Animation production is said to be done by Satelight. Not sure if I agree with the new name but hey, I can eventually adjust to it. Just like anyone else.
Volume 1 to be out in less than a week…
While everyone else is busy unlocking modes and discovering new characters, I’m at home still anxiously waiting for my copy to arrive _|￣|○

UPDATE 2: New Scans Added
From the Nanoha A’s PROJECT booth @ Comiket 70, comes… not an announcement regarding a Hayate OVA, oh no…, but instead the biggest surprise of the year! The official third season of Nanoha TV, titled, “StrikerS“. News is even hitting the official Nanoha mixi community! 2ch has even caught wind of it as well. Set to premiere sometime in 2007. More details as they come in.
A marketing ploy on Newtype’s part? Prepare to receive a lot of hatemail! The whole hoopla was just for a volume 2 DVD release promotion. I kinda knew something was up since Moonphase, the most reliable Japanese source out there, wasn’t saying anything regarding a new Haruhi project.
Update page: Haruhi owned. Ouch!
Absolute credit goes to Heisei Democracy, Moetry, and Kurogane’s Anime Blog. What you see above is the September issue of Newtype magazine, with the words “Suzumiya Haruhi RETURNS!!” in bold letters. Below it, this sentence: ハルヒはまだ御わらない!？(Haruhi is still not over yet!?) Whether this means a new regular TV second season or OVA remains to be seen. Stay tuned…
