Kyoto Animation and Kadokawa are on thin ice with fans right now but recently seem to have found some peaceful middle ground lately. On one hand, the anticipated Endless Eight DVD disaster is turning into an average level release after the first two volumes of the story arc went onto sell over 10K copies each. On the other hand, perhaps fans are just biding their time following the announcement of the long awaited Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie being released next year. In the original announcement, fans were forced to be satisfied with the vague spring 2010 release date.
A new release date has been released online though and states that the movie will now be released February 6th, 2010 with fans in Japan able to buy advance tickets starting November 21st. Also revealed in the announcement is that the movie is going to be a full 150 minutes. Wait, 150 minutes? As in it’s going to be two and a half hours long? Bloody hell that’s a long movie!
