Sun Television, the broadcasting station in Japan's Hyōgo Prefecture that is Japan's first station to run The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya anime's "renewed airing" in 2009, has begun its run with the episode "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya I" ("Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu I") just after midnight on Friday. This is the first episode chronologically in the science-fiction comedy storyline, but the second episode to air during the original 2006 broadcast. Yahoo! TV Japan had listed another episode, "Mikuru Asahina's Adventure Episode 00," ("Asahina Mikuru no Bōken Episode 00"), as the first episode for another station, Sendai Television (OX). Sendai Television will not begin its run until April 7.
Update: The episode ended without the next episode's preview.
