Haruhi Without the SOS Brigade

The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan

Can you maintain your faith in Haruhiism given that the new TV series, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan, isn't being produced by KyoAni? Satelight takes charge of the original cast in this anime adaptation of the spin-off manga set in the Disappearance arc of the novels. This alternative reality story gives us a different take on Nagato, so maybe it's OK to have different staff as well.

Himouto! Umaru-chan

Some things about a girl only her older brother can know. Get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about the sibling gag manga Himouto! Umaru-chan, where the cute and popular kid sister turns into a cola-guzzling SD slug the minute she gets home. Meet a kid sister who's not garbage when the anime adaptation hits next year.
