The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan anime confirmed

After the frankly, amazing The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya anime movie, many had considered the once-phenomenal success of the Haruhi Suzumiya anime franchise to be over, considering the largely negative reaction to the “Endless Eight” story arc of the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Unfortunately, a continuing adaptation of Nagaru Tanigawa’s light novel series hasn’t been announced, but it seems that the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise hasn’t faded entirely from view.

AnimeNewsNetwork is reporting that if you try and visit the official Haruhi website “haruhi.tv” you are directed to a fairly standard looking “page cannot displayed” screen. However, if you highlight the bottom of the text, it shows an interesting redirect:

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan Anime Adaptation in the Works
Haruhi-chan & Churuya-san are also being distributed!

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan is a spin-off manga by Puyo that is set in the alternate universe explored in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. It is published in English by Yen Press.

Other than that an anime is indeed happening, not much else is known (although I would be very surprised if Kyoto Animation wasn’t the studio animating it). Hopefully it won’t be much longer until we know more!

One thought on “The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan anime confirmed

  1. I wish they would just animate more Haruhi. I like Nagato, but I wasn’t too impressed by this manga when I read it.
