NHK Premium to Re-Broadcast "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya"

Yes, that includes "Endless Eight."

More than a decade after its anime adaptation premiered, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya has remained popular. Sales of the original light novel have exceeded eight million copies in Japan alone, and the series helped make voice actors Aya Hirano and Tomokazu Sugita household names.


Now, to bolster their current line-up (which now includes popular anime like Love Live! and Attack on Titan), NHK Premium is gearing up to rebroadcast the entire TV run of the series.



Starting April 7, the channel will air an episode every Friday at 11:45 PM. All 28 episodes of the TV series will be shown -- including all eight episodes of the "Endless Eight" arc.


No indication has been given of whether the first season will be aired in broadcast order or chronological order.


Prior to news of the rebroadcast, the series's tenth anniversary has been celebrated with new songs and a special-edition Blu-Ray release.
