Not content with normal methods of showing off its new season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Kyoto Animation hid the first episode within a re-airing of the first season.
About two months ago in Japan the first season of Haruhi started re-airing on TV. Last week when episode eight should have been shown, a new episode was shown in its place. The new episode is called "Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody" and is so far the only new episode to be shown.
I guess there have been quite a few leaks in regards to the TV programming schedule in Japan that hinted at a 28 episode series run (season 1 + season 2). Still this was some shocking news for me, especially with Kyoto Animation's K-On still airing. I definitely enjoyed the new episode and will keep watching the rest as they air.
