Do fans mean nothing to these people?! I want reasons, dammit. (None of which will be good enough.)

Just people that Kadokawa can piss off in an idiotic attempt to be cute.

I have to admit that "Nice Boat" video was pretty epic. I think they handled things well. They could have just announced that the debut would be delayed. Instead, they tried for something humorous. Just be patient, it would come eventually. Please don't write hate on their Youtube channel just write ナイスヨット。 That's all that is needed.

maxikki, indeed. Instead of the season final, 25 minutes of boat pictures aired instead. Snapshots of these boats were posted on 4chan, and one anon commented, "Nice boat." on one of them. This prompted someone to use the School Days title font to write Nice Boat on the picture in question. The rest is history.

Har-de-har-har...

This might have been funny..... a year ago...

Is this a new marketing strategy of Kadokawa? Rickrolling the viewers of their programs?

Would you have been more content with a black screen saying "It's not finished."? Humor is a powerful tool, and I still believe Kadokawa made the right choice. Of course, I am a little disappointed, but I am confident that the debut will come soon.

It vanished over the last couple of years... Just like Haruhi franchise if Kadokawi keeps this up.

People, you freak out so easily. I mean, I found the REAL video right here. I think this one actually looks nice, and has some nice highlights from season 1.

It would be more respectful for their viewers if they put up an apology, preferrably with a reason for the delay and a new release date. Throwing a old joke to your audience to hide your mistakes is not the professional way to handle things.

Thank you so much. The video was great. This made my day. I really like the new character designs. Great voice work too.

It's right next to my common sence.

My Sence of Humor is not activated by nonsence such as this as it is not funny.

I would of rather they didn't put anything up at all. There's two problems with this choice: 1) this is another slap to the face to the Haruhi fans 2) the joke they went with is NOT funny in any sence of the term and 3) they've used up all thier good will with the last, oh FIVE or so times they've pulled a sucker punch. Enough is e-frickin-nough.

And before anyone says it.
THREE, Three problems.
SPANISH INQUISITION!

Trying my patience... what did I buy all those Haruhi figurines for?! Maybe this series just isn't worth it anymore.
