8.5/10

This whole arc has been hilarious so far; IMO funnier than the rest of the series. The one problem that bugs me is that the episode transitions are being done very brusquely.

Next week SHOULD have the part I want to see, Haruhi Vs. Kyon! I am actually liking this arc in the anime way more than in the novel, the Koizumi speeches were LOOOOOOONNNNGGG in the novel . 10/10 again, loved the art this week for some reason...

Mazui subs are out, but the HQ raw is taking forever, so they put a LQ one out.

But. This has been the best episode so far this season. It had a good balance of comedy while still being strikingly shocking. The Mikuru Beam was played out nicely, I realize now why everyone goes apeshit over it. The characters seem well drawn I guess, they seemed to fit in with the background art.

AND YAY! NYORO~N IS BACK
9/10

Here I was hoping for a flash back fanservice scene of Nagato biting Mikuru in Kyon's imagination lmao... ah well...

Pretty kool episode, it wasn't as suprising or as shocking, when I 1st reed the novel where I learnt Mikuru could really shot lasers from her eye, most likely because I already knew what was gonna happen. Makes me wonder if non-novel/manag readers were suprised or shocked by the scene in the episode.

I hope to see more of Tsuruya... she's so fast that you don't have time to answer any of her questions.

Rewaching with subs (and being able to pause) mad me notice some more things:
  • After have complaning last week, I think Nagato looks nice now. Specially her first shot, in the begining.
  • It is reallyobvious now she only follow Kyon's order. Twice this episode she asaked for his permission to follow Haruhi and Koizumi.
  • It is hilarious seeing Koizumi still smileing even when is obvious he don' want too. Like after have reciving his 'reward' for suggesting having extras and after being shoot by Mikuru.
  • There s two continuity errors. Just after Mikuru 'lose' her contact lens Haruhi have the idea of only usingthen after the 'transformation'. Yet, she doesn't wear then in the first fight scene. Also, the many familys just vanish during Mikuru's and Nagato's 'fight'.
  • Haruhi's and Kyon's fight was very well done.
  • Again, the Mikuru Beam scene was awesome.
  • Nagato did a big leap in that scene too. Almost a fly, really.
  • Haruhi must really be blind. How the hell she didn't noticed before the reflector had be cut?
  • Hilarious Kyon claming being an amatour after giving many wierd scyfi names
  • Kyon's random references are awesome. Pope Inoccent III? Really?
  • Both Tsuruya and Taniguchi are awesome. Period.
  • Taniguchi and Kunikida conversation is very funny. I wonder if is always like that.
  • The black taxis intriged me. I wonder if the cab is Arakawa (we couldn't se his/her face).
  • TFEI? I didn't remember it. It seen to be the humanoid interface, but what it means? It was spoke in english, so the meaning must be in english as well right?
  • Speaking on they, apparently Yuki is very skilled amongst then. What intrigued me, however, is Nagato don't explang anything, unike the others. So the others interfaces explaing things to the Organization?
Wow, I talked a lot now. I guess I should reread Sighs... I really didn't remember that TFEI thing.

From Mazui's release:
Code:
Tsuruya: Mikuru, you're so cute! I want to bring you home!
Nice one.

The last part there was great. Just goes to show how much I've missed Tsuruya (and her accent).

So, what was Haruhi humming when she skipped off near the end?

It wasn't Rock is Dead like in the book, unfortunately... although I can see why that would be impossible for Aya Hirano to hum...

In any case, great episode. Really can't find much to complain about, so 9/10.

They've covered up through Chapter Three and into Chapter Four, and I suspect they'll want to end the episode with -that scene-, which should be interesting.

Great episode, Yeah glad to see Kyon grow a pair finally, and Tsuruya's back yay. Also some have said Yuki appearing in her witch costume was toned down last episode, from the novel. How is it different? Also was Mikuru claiming to be sick in the novel? or are they going to use that as

I thought it was more Koizumi's opinion then an actual fact, from my POV, it looked liked all aliens related to IDSE have similar powers to Nagato. Although I can kind of see Nagato being more skilled then your average IDSE humanoid alien when you consider Asakura being Nagato's backup.

Favorite moment: Kyon clutching Haruhi by the back of the neck while she sulks

Favorite line: "It seems I unexpectedly fired an optical weapon....

Definitely the best Sighs ep so far and, indeed, anime improved the narrative 100%.

It's in the novel too.

If they do -that scene- completely uncensored, I'll be very happy.

They won't, but I'd be very happy. >_>

I dunno, they have even drawn the scene of Nagato's injuries, as well as Kyon stopping Haruhi for the first time... Might as well go all the way.

It's more that -that scene- has content related to stuff that was censored in the -original broadcast-, so...

But, like I said, if they do go all the way I'll be -happy-.

Well, at any point during the scene, did you get the feeling that Nagato was Death?

Spoiler for space:


Nagato scared the hell out of them in the novel, to the point that Haruhi was rendered utterly speechless until after she sat down and started reading.

The anime really didn't convey that all too well. Sure, the basic details were there, but the overall feeling of dread was completely absent.

Liking Sigh so far, I'll agree with what a lot are already saying: This arc is better animated then written. This episode pretty much confirms it for me. The Mikuru Beam scene was priceless.

And it looks like the scene I've been waiting for, in "someones" house is next week.

The anime definitely portrayed Yuki's entrance more as shocking rather than fearful. You kinda get a better feeling as to why Haruhi goes all genki over Yuki right after she sits donw in the novel, since Yuki's frightful attire was exactly what Haruhi wanted in the villain.

Strangely enough, Tsuruya seemed to be the best drawn character of the whole cast this episode imo. Makes me wonder if there's a certain soft spot for her within KyoAni's animation department
