Bandai’s Spinoff releases of Haruhi!

Originally announced in August 2008, the premiere of The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya was more notable for pulling a “nice boat” and putting up a fake video before the real video was shown the following day (February 14th, 2009).

Each set was accompanied by another short, Nyoron~Churuya-san, for a total of 13 weeks. Bandai announced their license of the series on May 19th, 2010 and released the show on two half-season sets on October 5th, 2010 (BE Online store)/March 22nd, 2011 (Regular Release) and February 8th, 2011(BE Online store)/August 2nd, 2011 (Regular Release).
