A day that won’t live in infamy…. unless the pre-orders sell out before I get online that morning. Forget the frenzy for an Xbox or a Nintindo… the stampede of Christmas 2006 will be when Haruhi becomes available in Region 1

Schlund is a domain registrar and hosting service in Denmark. Nothing to be learned there.
However, AnimeOnDVD seems to have developed a glitch in their latest news stories… one that renders every S and O in red. Or blue, depending on your browser — linking to the above site. Do they have advance word?
From the ANN Forums:
So what’s the deal with AnimeonDVD’s main page and the page that the colored s’ and o’s link to? It’s obviously Haruhi related, but doesn’t really detail much on how, as in licensed or possibly or a fansite or what.
There’s a discussion about AoD’s front page going on in their forums:
The first post in the AoD thread queried whether the current layout is a subtle hint of licensing, to which Chris Beveridge replied:
Quote: I am the master of subtlety.
At the current moment, the impression I got from all this is that it could be a (not so) subtle licensing stunt.
Is this series possibly the most anticipated license in the last 10 years? Well, bear in mind that the above messages are on the seventy-seventh page of this thread on ANN’s forums. In the words of the immortal Bugs Bunny: “Mmmmmmmmmm….could be!”
