You may say that, but Haruhi is not evil
, in traditional sense. More like rampant disregard of other's well being
Actually that's not exactly right.
As the story goes on, you will see different side of Haruhi. Some are nice, some are funny, one or two even made me go "wow I never knew she is like that inside her mind". The story needs time to develope its characters.
There is a method in her madness. More than method, actually. She is a very rounded character.
If I have to complain, I would complain about Mikuru. She gets the short end of the stick in terms of character developement. Therefore out of the four primary supportive characters, I like her the least.
Those aside, the pacing of this episode left much to desire. Animation is still top-notch, but the pacing....
