Gestern tauchten ja die ersten Meldungen auf, dass die Haruhi-Box nun erst am 26. November erscheint und ich habe die Neuigkeit woanders auch schon gebracht. Aber hier hatte ich keine Lust nur einen „Ein-Satz“-Artikel zu posten. Praktischerweise haben Haruhi und Kyon selbst etwas mehr Inhalt produziert:

Auf der offiziellen Seite gibt’s nämlich eine „Stellungnahme“ der beiden, die als Übersetzung im Animesuki-Forum von ultimatemegax „geposted“ wurde:

Notice from the SOS Brigade
We had planned to release „Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu Blu-Ray Complete Box“ on October 22nd, but the process of editing, tweeking the images, etc were more of a hassle than we had expected. I had thought the process of converting to Blu-Ray would be troublesome, but even the instructions were a hassle.

I could only say that Kyon’s expectation was optomistic.

So we conclude that it’ll be approximately one month longer than expected for the release. Somehow while working day and night, a miracle may come from Kyon. However, since we all feel this isn’t an ordinary postponement, we’ll prepare some additional special benefits. I’ll report when these are decided.

-SOS Brigade Leader: Haruhi Suzumiya

What?!!! After all the work I do usually at school and around the world, you’re pushing the work of everyone on me when I can’t even take a breath?!

Regardless of if I follow your plans like usual or not, it’ll be done in just a little while. It’s inexcuseable. Wait, what’s this about extra benefits? Why didn’t I hear about this?! OI!

Naja, da bleibt dann mehr Geld zum Zusammenkratzen und scheinbar kommt nun ja auch der englische Dub auf die BDs, ob das auch für die 2009er Folgen gilt, weiß man noch nicht.

Edit: Quelle für die Übersetzung korrigiert.

Yesterday I read some news about a postponement of the Haruhi BD and I even posted it elsewhere, but I didn’t want to post here a one-liner, but Haruhi and Kyon werenice and created more content themselves:

Today an statement was put on the official website and later a translation was posted in the AnimeOnDVD.com forums by ultimatemegax:

More time to save money and it looks like the English dub will also be included in the set. It’s unclear if a dub will also be included for the episodes of 2009.
