    Default The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi

    Not sure where i should put this, or if there are any existing threds on it already, i did look but gave up

    Nonetheless just finished watching the first series and loved it, so i am reading the novel. its so kawaii and funny. i can't wait for the next one. Haruhi is brilliant; but i wasn't keen on Mikuru-san, she annoyed me.

    Any thoughts on it? likes? Dislikes? ect

    Wait, let me get this straight you wasnt so keen on the possibly only sane female in the series, and the only reason she is that way is cause Haruhi almost forces her to wear cosplay costumes all the time either that or uses her to get want or to satasify her own ambitions

    Funny show! I still haven't finished it yet, but it's pretty fun so far. (How many episodes are there?)

    The first episode totally caught me off guard. I was like, WHAT?! I think it's cool how all the episodes are out of order. That's really neat

    Everybody said it's good so I watched it.. I was disapointed... It was good but not great.. And not so funny but little bit... And Haruhi was sometimes too annoying... And sometimes it was too confusing to me.. XD But it's just my opinion...

    I thought the show was brilliant. My review of it is in the Anime Review forum. Anyway, the only thing about the series that bothered me was that it wasn't in a technical "broadcast order", but rather aired in a seemingly random order. Really the only time it bothered me was with the first episode, and how long it took for them to explain why it was the way it was. Once that got explained, everything was good. An interesting little series, though. I haven't seen an series create a cultish following(the Haruhiists) for a while...not since Naruto, but I wouldn't consider that a cultish follow as opposed to inexplicably rabid fandom.

    i watched and like it...and was confused for awhile wondering why i didn't know some of the things that should have been known until i finally realized it..but yea i watched it once through in the order they showed and then another time through in the correct order of the show that should have been but wasn't. and plus that dancing sequence for the ending is just adicting to watch...the jason/scream/hollweeen mask guys version inside that one room dancing to that song is just great.

    Haruhi isn't bad at all, I can certainly see why it's become as popular as it has, I myself am buying two copies of the first DVD When it comes out at the end of May <3

    Of course Haruhi is good entertainment value, it's the most popular series in Japan right now. or at least one of them.

    I know a store I buy from has ordered 800 Preorders of the first DVD with the Extra's and over 500 of those have been sold, so that'll tell you right there

    not to double post but Haruhi doesn't make any sense, it's not supposed to. It's just.. there

    She was too whiny and quiet, i don't know why i just thought her character was a little bland and two-dimensional. no back-bone and thus very....flat. It just seems she was there as a plot device to cause problems between kyon and harauhi (as if they don't have enough.)

    I loved yuki, just her mystery and unpredictability, i thought was great.

    I thought this was a pretty good series as well. I can see why they chose to play the story out of order since the "last" episode feels more poignant and conclusive this way. However, I think they could have done without the whole out of order episodes, especially if there is going to be a second season (see last comment). In fact, it kind of bothered me that they chose to stray from the confines of the first novel and creep into the other novels' territory. Otherwise I thought it was great.

    Concerning Haruhi, she definitely is pushy and occasionally rude, but I think that it is fitting since she really only puts on this air to cover up her otherwise shy and lonely interior. I think that's the whole reason why she started her SOS Brigade, an excuse to get close to other people without being ordinary. I can actually see this series ending with only these "first" 13 episodes since the ending technically was pretty conclusive, and drawing it out further will only exhaust an otherwise sweet story. That being said, I still would watch a second season if it were to air since I enjoyed this one thoroughly. Does anyone know, conclusively, if there will be a second season?

    P.S. sorry for the long post.

    Nothing has been announced, so there can't be any conclusive answer, but it appears to be a "no" for now. It's been roughly year since the series first aired, so I'd assume that if it were to continue there would be some kind of notice about it, such as with Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.

    The first episode was pretty slow, and personally I had a hard time understanding what was happening in it. You actually have to suffer through the first epsiode, and then in episode two it actually starts to make sense and becomes enjoyable. I'm embarassed to say that I actually watched the entire 14 epsiodes in one sitting.

    I thought the episode order just added to theme and i thought it was clever once i figured it out. I liked the first episode (4..i think).

    The last episode was a little bland following everything else that happened. I want there to be a conclusion to the story and the characters. But at the same time i don't want the story to be spoiled. Someone said that there was a second series but i doubt that it was true

    Unfortunately, I don't like Haruhi until the end I watched it. I mean, she's very rude and aggressive. Mikuru and Yuki are okay, I guess. I'm not really fond of this anime and I don't understand why people like it so much...

    Thanks to Ms Lucy for this awesome, funny gif.

    The person that you are now is not the person that I used to know. You're becoming a stranger that I've never met before. Not liking the change though.

    I guess it's because it was cute and the storyline was kind of easy going,

    Haruhi's aggression was so amusing.

    On the surface, I suppose. If you look into a little deeper, you'll start to wonder why Nagato was the way she was while her back-up was almost completely foil to her. No good writer creates a foil character for the sake of having one. Also, the inclusion of Kimidori in Mysterique Sign. Why have her exist at all? A plot device? Kyon himself mentions at the end of the episode that Kimidori may have only existed for the sake of showing them the fake closed space. And on the subject of Kyon, doesn't he seem like a Haruhi that might've been. If Haruhi's life had goon a little differently, his exterior might've been an exact mirror of Kyon's. The reverse is also true.

    Another thing is the final episode. Apparantly there were supposed to be lyrics to the song that is being played during the Celestial scene when Kyon talks about what he'll miss if Haruhi's desires are achieved. Kyon sort-of mentions people mentioned in the song.

    Hare Hare Yukai has a somewhat hidden quality to it. I was, for only an instant, very disturbed when I realized what it was. Look at the lyrics. "These looping feelings of melancholy warp everyone in to play with imagination." Haruhi's emotional imbalance gave birth to a closed space. The song talks about Haruhi's emotional discord during various parts of the series.

    The storyline seems simple, but there's a lot of parts that, if analyzed, show a very complicated view of the series.

    Quoted for absolute truth.

    Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu is not really that simple of a series as many think. It makes you reflect quite a lot if you really pay attention. I know it gave me a lot to think about, myself. Maybe that is why I am such a rabid Haruhiist.

    Oh, and about napalmgod's query... yes, I disliked Mikuru. A lot. I do not like people who lack even the slightest measure of a force of will, and I do not find her "being so indefense" endearing in the slightest. She reminds me too much of the parts of myself I despise with a burning passion. And you can't say she's the only sane female in the series, because you really can't say Yuki is crazy. If anything, she might be too sane . And I do not think Haruhi to be crazy either, but the reasonings that made me reach that conclussion would be a fairly long rant, which I do not feel like writing.
