Haruhi is athletic, brilliant, and completely bored with life. We dont need any random spoilers to ruin the show for first time watchers. Of course Haruhi has an ending, she's had this all scripted in stone for weeks. I was only short learning Japanese just to watch anime in Japanese and eating Japanese food. It is not at all what I expected from an anime universally regarded as a classic. If there are any aliens, beings from the future, or super-humans, come see me. There should be something more to all this. For example, we get another round of theories from Koizumi, Mikuru, and Yuki. C is the actual chronological order of the events for S1. If I get this right basically Mikuru's or the time travellers interpretation is that the world is as it is but Haruhi has the power to discover things. However, upon meeting Haruhi Suzumiya, he quickly finds out that it is the supernatural that she is interested in—aliens, time travelers, and espers among other things. I don't really have an answer to that, but I like to believe that those two aren't mutually exclusive. Press J to jump to the feed. Good thing Kyon was around and had had enough. a scene that could have been the final scene for the entire show. To be honest with everything we've seen until this point I'm very surprised the show is so popular. He really wasn't serious? Whose theory about Haruhi is correct? :(. Kyon is a cynical and sarcastic teenager. I have already seen Haruhi, I watched it basically: S1 Broadcast-order, S2, then movie. They always freak out and jump off, usually leaving some claw marks behind. * Based on Tanigawa Nagaru`s Suzumiya Haruhi series of novels, illustrated by Itou Noizi.Suzumiya Haruhi, is an intelligent high school girl with a mischievous personality, and very egocentric disposition, and upon enrolment at school she announces:"I have no interest in ordinary humans. Asterisk denotes S2 2009 episodes. Maybe Mikuru knows things we don't know? Honestly, I still don't really know how to think about Haruhi - the show or the character. But anyway, if this whole mess served for something or not it remains to be seen. Male calicos are more common than that; closer to 1/4000. Aaand the cat is talking. Are the cosplayers from another world? Otherwise, you may as well just watch S1 (doesn't matter broadcast or chronological order). The next episode is about Mikuru. Understand the history and dynamics - The Haruhi hype was generated from S1. I would only read manga. An XXY cat is one in a million. It's a great scene to end the season on, though, right down to the pause to down Kyon's coffee as she storms out. Although maybe it's exactly because of these controversial decisions that it drew so much attention in the first place. The end conversation was fun, Mikuru wasn't bullied, and she even (kind of) listened to Kyon lol. For first time viewers, this watch order is much more preferable as intended by the author. I have been wanting to watch this anime for awhile but the MAL page has this wikipedia link about how it aired in a nonlinear order in the tv compared to the way it was in the manga.. Should I watch t This arc took a bit to get started, with the first couple of episodes being a lot of build up, but the last couple were a lot of fun to watch. And Nagato biting her! But implicitly, it's possible that just Kyon acting out like he did was enough to make her realize and at least internally she understands that she's gotta turn her bullshit down, even if she didn't say it. At least explicitly I fear that Haruhi learned nothing and even worse, because Kyon is the one who apologized, it may even reinforce her position. In particular, I liked the through-the-drinking glass shot and the shot of a rainy window - that I think was actually live action? Nagato looks like a badass in this next scene. Got big hopes for this episode after yesterday and due to it being the last of this arc. I would love a shoulder cat (Shamisen knows what's up). Yuki's probably fine, animals like chill people. So cute lol. QOTD: Wasn't allowed to own a pet growing up as my mother was afraid of both dogs and cats after some incidents from when she was a kid. The fact is, when she sets her mind on something, she will make it happen, even if she has to wrap the very fabric of reality in the process. It adds more mystery to the story: 2. :/. For clarity, I shall refer to individual episodes by their title or an unambiguous abbreviated title, e.g. What sort of resolution awaits? Only took 3 years for Kyon to tell Haruhi, not that she would ever believe Kyon. The first day of his first year of high school is filled with hopes of a normal school experience—hopes that are immediately dashed after meeting the beautiful and eccentric Haruhi Suzumiya. It betrays chronology: 2. And just like that Mikuru shows great bravery! Right now, a lot of Haruhi fans will recommend you either watch the show start to finish in chronological order, or that you watch season one in its broadcast order then watch seasons one and two together in chronological order. That is all! Haruhi wouldn’t have stood a chance against the likes of Saber, Senjougahara, or Yukinoshita (the eventual winner), but she didn’t do poorly. Maybe the cat will just start talking because of Haruhi lol.

I'm not going to give any LN spoilers but I think that a factor is also Koizumi's role and personality in comparison to the other two. This gives you a "10" show. Is there any redemption for our violently flawed leads? "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" is a 14-episode anime adaptation which aired in 2006. The Koizumi-Asahina difference in opinion didn't appear to amount to much so far. # The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya I (s2) # The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya II (s2) # The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya III (s2) # The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya IV (s2) # The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya V (s2) # Mikuru Asahina's Adventure - Episode 00 # Live A Live # The Day of Sagittarius # Someday in the Rain. So to clarify; S1 2,3,5,10,13,14,4) -> S2 (1) -> S1 (7,6,8) -> S2 (2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14) -> S1 (1,12,11,9). It's interesting that while the previous Arcs and episodes behaved in a way that supported the first theory, this Arc shifts towards the second one. That is all! But we have a cat meowing in place of it so bad things probably won't happen. Some reminders: Make sure… Overlapping is allowed. And I know it was in terms of broadcast order, but for me it would have worked for chronological order too. I have already seen Haruhi, I watched it basically: S1 Broadcast-order, S2, then movie. By the S2 episodes themselves without the larger context to the story, it's hovering between a 6-7. This episode ends here. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱 Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu) is the general name for a series of light novels written by Nagaru Tanigawa and illustrated by Noizi Ito, and subsequently adapted into an anime, manga, video games and even a movie. * Based on Tanigawa Nagaru`s Suzumiya Haruhi series of novels, illustrated by Itou Noizi.Suzumiya Haruhi, is an intelligent high school girl with a mischievous personality, and very egocentric disposition, and upon enrolment at school she announces:"I have no interest in ordinary humans. Otherwise, you may as well just watch S1 (doesn't matter broadcast or chronological order). Is the order they went in when season 2 was airing? Rewatch. The anime first aired on Japanese television from April 2-July 2, 2006. S2 is controversial because of the Endless Eight arc, but it's well worth watching along with S1 just for the movie (which, unlike the rest, I loved). Note: I highly recommend you watch S1 Episode 1 "The adventures of Mikuru Asahina/Episode 00" FIRST, even though it is chronologically the 25th episode, even if you decide to go with the 2009 chronological order. And this deep grizzled middle aged guy voice too! So I'm gonna watch them in chronological order, I keep getting confused because people list them by episode name. Haruhi didn't believe him lol. She's scared to give him a coupon? I believe that is the best viewing order. I definitely read that as a backpedal from being too honest. This episode looked great. First season, second season, and a movie that wraps it all up neatly as well as well as alternate side series. If I'm correct, that order is the Chronological order. SOS Brigade: = Spreading Excitement All Over the World with Haruhi Suzumiya Brigade Order Season 1 from RightStuf: Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya DVD Complete Collection (Hyb) (Anime Legends) Consider the end credits to the first season, set to the infectious song “Hare Hare Yukai.” (The title translates to “Sunny, Sunny Happiness.”) The sequence is an elaborate performance by the main characters that inspired a minor dance craze when the show first aired. It's almost like the time travellers are trying to rationalise the BS that happens around Haruhi, while the espers are interpreting it as a religion. She was bumped out early by being defeated by Yuuki Asuna, but it was only a narrow loss. I understand that Koizumi, Asahina and Nagato don't want to stop a selfish brat because she has basically unlimited power and if they piss her off its over. For Suzumiya Haruhi, I've already decided, on the recommendation of friends, to watch in the order of the first Japanese broadcast, but I'm still curious as to the nature of each watch order, as listed on Wikipedia, and the explanation for each one, and if there exists guide(s) similar in format to the ones for the Monogatari series. Proponents of the broadcast order B argue that it makes so that S1 ends with the main arc's own climactic ending. That shot of Haruhi and Kyon meeting up at the station looks just like the one at the end of the Melancholy Arc. The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya: 2, 3, 5, 10, 13, 14, Endless Eight: 2*, 3*, 4*, 5*, 6*, 7*, 8*, 9*, The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya: 10*, 11*, 12*, 13*, 14*, Movie: The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts, http://myanimelist.net/profile/ShadowABCXYZ. "You shouldn't trust Koizumi." It was her or the time travelers. Sigh arc was basically fine on its own, but a little slow-starting considering how far along we are in the story and light on the finish compared to the Melancholy arc. From reading yesterday's comments I may be in the minority here, but watching the scene where everything blew up, I found myself half-wishing that Kyon would actually hit Haruhi. The main conflict seems to have been mostly resolved by the time today's episode rolls around, and the remaining time it looks like it's setting up some future conflicts. Well, OK, I'm guessing Nagato finished the movie. The anime adaptation was produced by Kyoto Animation and was directed by Tatsuya Ishihara. Time to … It took me until yesterday to figure out tiny spoilers but tagged anyway. Haruhi seems satisfied, and his idea works - the cats stop talking and the cherry trees lose their blooms. It's been fun though, and I can't wait for the movie. So by the strength of the S2 episodes themselves, they are not exceptional. Haruhi's gonna turn the whole world into her movie! Today we see the cumulative effects of all of this where, for once, she finally takes Kyon's suggestion to do that director's speech in the end. The thing with the Haruhi-verse is that you really need to take the whole thing as a whole - S1 and S2 in chronological order, then watch the movie. Not because it's right or anything like that, but dammit she needs to realize how much of a dick she's being. Yuki and the cat are looking at each other. A talking XXY cat is slightly rarer. I know KyoAni likes shots of their leads against the night sky but that's a bit extra. "It was all a dream", in other words the worst possible ending to a story. It's not terribly different than order C. Here's the deal: S1 consists of a main six episode arc (the namesake "Melancholy" arc) with a bunch of filler episodes. I don't want to watch the episodes out of order, unless... Am I supposed to? It is fine to watch it this way, but after S2 came out, there is a different order, assuming you care enough to follow it :p. When S2 aired on TV it was aired interspersed between S1 episodes, here is the order for the whole thing: Episode numbers for S1 refer to broadcast "official" numbering, not the DVD numbering. But he really was trying to reveal their identities. If there's one thing Yuki usually can't do, it's a succinct and understandable explanation. Schedule and important information Where to watch: Funimation This time tomorrow (5pm EST) the Rewatch of Haruhi Suzumiya will begin! Also I find it interesting that both Koizumi and Mikuru are undermining each other. Although this time they did not wake up in a new space. I wonder if we'll know anything more about them? The background colors are … I'm excited. Smart, imaginative, strong willed and beautiful, nothing can stand for very long in her way. Shamisen having to fake a meow in front of Kyon's sister is pretty great. She's too dense. LOL!!!!!! After settling on a hairstyle, Haruhi is always seen wearing an orange-yellow headband with ribbons on the side, in her hair. My favorite new abnormality while filming is the Passenger Pigeons because their color scheme is gorgeous! 1. Popular anime series Haruhi Suzumiya will soon see its film The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya return to North America on Blu-ray and DVD. That's why after seeing the casting choice for the movie Kyon says "is this my fault?" As for Haruhi and Kyon's reconciliation, well it was a step in the right direction, but not enough imo. Made this comment a few days ago. It definitely feels like a lot of thought was put into it, both in the original airing but also chronologically. If I watched S1, was very excited about S2 and what I got was Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody, eight episodes of Endless 8 and the Sigh arc, I would be pretty disappointed. Plus some other meta factors at that time, e.g. And although we got to see her in her worst yesterday, there's no denying that if Haruhi was completely dismissive of everyone around her like she was before, things would've turned out much worst. She really stooped low here. LoL, he tells her the full truth and it comes off as such bullshit. Other orders have S1 ending with the calmer other arcs. Something I really appreciate about this episode are the parallels between it and the Melancholy Arc. Koizumi has lied to you about everything! This arc ends here too. It's either Melancholy 6, or Someday in the rain -> Disappearance. The Haruhi Suzumiya rewatch starts tomorrow! That means that you’d watch a lot of the episodes twice, which isn’t bad for rewatches but it’s not ideal when you want to watch one after another. Bump For those interested, It was announced that AYA HIRANO, YUKO GOTO and MINORI CHIHARA will be special guests at this years Anime Expo (June29-July2, Long Beach CA) and will be performing "Bouken Desho Desho? This time though we actually do get to see Kyon try to explain everything about the other brigade members to Haruhi and it’s a really nice touch. What was the reason for it releasing in such a fucked up order? This gives you a "10" show. Despite finding the different interpretations surrounding Haruhi's power interesting I do think this is one of the weakest episodes of the series. I suspect that the trio are all truthful when they're talking about each other but not themselves. I would even go so far as to guess that none of this has been answered in the LNs yet. Yuki continues to get the best dramatic shots, even over Haruhi. Alright, Nagato may have not been telling the truth, but she saved you from a laser! B is the original nonlinear broadcast order for S1. I'm under the impression that Koizumi is kinda slippery, and doesn't want to appear as going against the status quo - especially when it comes to Haruhi. Haruhi Suzumiya sure does, and that’s a problem for us all. ReddIt. I would only watch anime. She even goes so far as to "help" Kyon with the editing of the video. The primary job of the time traveller is to make sure Haruhi doesn't discover something she isn't supposed to discover such as a time traveller, or alien or ESPer as that would change the future. Right now, a lot of Haruhi fans will recommend you either watch the show start to finish in chronological order, or that you watch season one in its broadcast order then watch seasons one and two together in chronological order. Haruhi could have just willed the effects (at the level she expects from Kyon) in, honestly, but it seems like something Yuki could do. A male calico!? I hope you guys are all excited to experience (or re-experience) one of the best anime to of been made. It wasn't explicitly stated, but I think this second theory can be summarized in "The World is Haruhi's dream", a possibility that was brought up in the first Arc, although I don't remember by whom. QotD: I've been thinking about getting a cat. That close up glass cup scene is mind blowingly good. Yes! Asahina's is a bit more complex. For example, in the case of n=2, watching episode 1, then 2, then 1 again, would fit the criteria. At a glance, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya seems like a pretty straightforward series to watch. Though, I wouldn't mind seeing some fanart of the SOS Brigade as the Blues Brothers Band. Finally, someone's side other than Koizumi. Of course it's not Nagato, she wouldn't have answered! During the first episode of this arc, I mentioned that Haruhi's bossiness seems to have changed somewhat, in that she somehow listens to Kyon now even if she still dismisses him in the end.
