Bandai Enterntainment has been busy with their viral Haruhi Suzumiya page over the Christmas holiday; they’ve updated the ASOS Brigade page multiple times. After lying pretty well dormant since the release of the first season, ASOSBrigade.com was updated four times between December 25th and 27th. Before the release of season one of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, ASOSBrigade.com served to build up interest in the title with cryptic posts and hidden messages in the code. The latest round of updates point to a pretty pointless YouTube video (embedded below) and a Facebook group among other things.
While there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, based on past indicators, Bandai must be getting close to either announcing a license for season 2 of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya or the upcoming movie The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. The movie airs in Japan in February while season 2 finished up its run earlier this year. It will be interesting to see how Bandai handles the excruciatingly repetitive 8 episodes arc of Endless Eight.
