Did the guy who started the creepy derail about the dude being noted as being a virgin ever get probated in the end?

What do you mean? NGNL's anime adaptation isn't doing very well because it's not perverted enough to pander to the LN readers/otaku crowd but it's a little too much for the regular watcher crowd (as evidenced by this very forum). Which sucks, because it's great.

NGNL is one of the most successful LN adaptations ever, actually. You can't just judge LN adaptations by the BD/DVD sales metric.

It made vol 1 of the LN go from 7k sales to 90k, probably 100k as of next week.

e: Mahouka/Irregular at Magic Highschool is *insanely* bad, but the thread for it is a funny read so I recommend that anyone who hasn't looked at that thread to take a peek.

Imouto shrugged is spot on. And yeah that show is hilariously bad, like it's pretty much on the offensive bad because of what it says but still hilarious. And yes read the thread, it's as much if not more hilarious

What gets me is how much vitriol is thrown at the very scattered bits like that kiss while almost no outrage is directed at the unabashed cruelty they direct at a female character. They constantly brutalize her, strip her naked, and humilate her in various ways. I really enjoyed the game segments, but the degrading treatment is nearly nonstop in every episode. People love that. God forbid they slip in two seconds of a kiss though. That's just terrible.

I was under the impression that fell under your regular slapstick humour, though I haven't watched the show so I may be wrong here. Paedophilic incest is a bit further outside most people's comfort zones.

The show is good. First season was better than the current second season though. The game is also good and has a very friendly F2P business model.

Yes, though I don't think money is involved. More so exposure for the school and a need to get more people to apply to said school to keep it open. I really liked the first season and the pacing of the story. Second season doesn't feel as well paced but does more to flesh out the characters.

You know how dumb and crazy someone has to be to pay Japanese prices for anime? Add "idols" to the mix and suddenly you have fans that are many times dumber and crazier.

In any case, the first volume will likely sell much more than the rest of the show (although the rest of the show is going to sell really well too). It has an event ticket and costs about 20 dollars less than the other volumes, despite having the same amount of content on the disc.

Newtype and Sankyo have collaborated and paid Kyoto Animation to make a short music video to promote Sankyo's upcoming "Super The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" pachinko game. They've taken the video and converted it into 707 frames spread around Japan on billboards, convenience stores, magazines, and websites. Users can upload these frames to the official website where they'll be placed in proper position for the music video (set to "Lost my music").

This is not a new anime series, movie, ova, etc. It's simply a video to promote the pachinko game.

Not sure if the above is surprising/newsworthy, I'm a little confused, but it's much like the commercial that Makoto Shinkai made for a correspondence education service.

It's more that there'll be someone who sees "new Haruhi anime!" and jumps to the conclusion that it's a full length series, movie, or OVA and I wanted to stop the idiocy before it starts.

Just looking at that website (haruhi.com) you wouldn't guess that. It just mentions the music video and uploading pictures. No where does it say what it is for. At least to an English speaker using Google translate.

E: yep. /a/ was going crazy over it thinking it was a new series.

The Haruhi Pachinko game expires on Tanabata (July 7) We're still waiting for another update on the Disappearance of Yuki Nagato and there probably will be something on that day (December 18th was the initial announcement.) People are going to say it was anime related anyways.

That was what made me bail out of the series about halfway through episode two. It was really terrible, and it sounds like it got worse.
