Itou Noizi is indeed the illustrator for both light novels, but she's not the author. Suzumiya Haruhi series' author is Tanigawa Nagaru. Shakugan no Shana series' author is Takahashi Yashichirou.

Yup, their faces have the Shana thing going on. Guess I'll be watching this for the 12? episodes.

Oh lawd, SOS Dan strikes again. 8)

This show never fails to impress. I am amazed at how much movement they've managed to stick into practically every scene. At first it's just a regular people walking and talking, but then Kyon starts getting into arguments with Haruhi and they manage to show an ungodly amount of mimic and facial expression, but when Haruhi finally starts SOS Dan, why it goes above and beyond the call of duty. Every single frame has something moving.

I am afraid to learn how many key animation shots they used for a single episode.

The montage work is first grade as well. This gets especially apparent in those scenes with Kyon and Haruhi where KyoAni does a constant switching between those two to produce a very startling effect. We never pause on any of their faces but their expessions change every time, producing an amazing scope of emotion from both character.

Wow... just wow!

And the music is so fitting as well (I mean the BGM). And I always feel so weird looking at Haruhi's eyes. The way they've drawn them... you know, it was as if they've used this semitransparent multilayered glass effect to show different hues and colors. I can believe those eyes were actually drawn, not rendered, they look so alive and real (while staying in the anime convention).

Oh, and poor Mikuru... and poor everyone that gets in Haruhi's way when she sets her mind on something. And the hilarity of the "moe scene" and Kyon thinking about what day of the week it is based on Haruhi's haircut. 8)))

The full-frame ending was even better than before. 8)

Yeah, I really liked the violin piece in the scene when Mikuru was first introduced. And on a few other occassions some nice pieces as well. Gotta agree on the eyes as well, just beautiful. :)

Just some art from Nishimata Aoi. The two shots are taken from covers of Comptiq magazine 4 and 11 2005.




Hmm, made two ava gifs for the undressing scene. Didn't turn out as expected, oh well...








And to add all of Haruhi's different hairstyles:

I am so ridiculously tempted to grab the RAW even though I won't understand a lick of what's going on.

Hirano Aya (Haruhi's voice actress) just became an anime goddess. The smoothness of her stridency is amazing.

This show is at a very high level. Subtle and amazing all round.

Great animation:
-- Kyon dancing away from his bike in the opening credits.
-- When Kyon was leaning out the window watching Haruhi at the pool, the way they rocked the camera slightly to represent his body moving. The water. The way Haruhi walked out of the frame while they held the shot instead of following her. The way Kyon leaned out further to watch her walk around the building.
-- The scene at the top of the stairs, and Haruhi running down them.

Other favorite moments:
-- Haruhi going "hmph" at the end of her first conversation with Kyon.
-- The lovely sad look on the girl's face as she ushered the boys out of the room after Haruhi did her thing in class.
-- The way Kyon talked over the last bit of what Haruhi was saying when they were sitting before class, before Itsuki asked Kyon how he got her to talk.
-- The way Mikuru (Gotou Yuuko) asked what the room was. Haruhi locking the door. Haruhi's dry: "Please be quiet." Mikuru's squeaks.

Kyon is a cool guy. No wimpy harem lead. Big kudos to Sugita Tomokazu (Mayama in Honey&Clover, etc.).

The three girls together on the ED are great.

I don't think Haruhi is really tsundere, is she? At least not yet. It's tsun, tsun, tsun and then a flamethrower of joy. No dere there at all.

I don't think there's anything in this post that needs a spoiler. Let me know if there is.

I just watched the raw, didn't understand a word of it, and it still made me laugh out loud.

Right here:
Spoiler for a screenshot:

The look of anguish and fear on her face. The tears forever welling up in her eyes. It's almost to good to be true.

Asakura Ryouko is her name. She's an... interesting one.

That's not Itsuki, his name is Taniguchi, who went to the same middle school as Haruhi.

That's why I didn't put her straight down as one. Even after all these novel volumes, I have yet to see a dere Haruhi. I can stretch a few to look like she's semi-dere-ing, but that's about it.

But that's okay, Mikuru-chan and Haruhi balances each other out perfectly anyway. I can't wait for the "computer aquisition" scene in the next episode. ^^

I'm just curious if there is any kind of romantic entanglement between the characters? I got the impression that Kyon likes Mikuru. Who actually likes who in this series?

Does that include Haruhi cutting her hair after Kyon commenting on her hairstyle(s)?

Man, after watching the 1st ep I was counting the days until the 2nd ep... now I'll have to count the days until the 3rd. I'm even considering getting my hands on the novels... for those who have read them how closely does it seem to be following the novels so far? (yes I know "Episode 00" only comes later in the novels)

No, but that was the first sign that Haruhi might actually care about Kyon's comments.

Almost to a tee. Almost all the lines were taken straight out from the novel. In fact, this episode was pretty much the first 66 pages (out of 300 pages) of volume 1 in animated form. Mikuru-chan's anime counterpart is 100x better than what my brain was able to imagine from the novel though. ^^ That's why it feels extra great to watch this.

Oh yeah, something like this popped up:

The "Make Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu's ED Hare Hare Yuukai Oricon Number 1 Project"
In other words, BUY THE CD! or something.

So would you say so far the execution of the anime amplifies the hilarity of the novels?

There's definitely hints that that may be where the show might head.

..Though personally, I'd rather they not spend too much time on it -- it probably would pull away from the the show's happy-go-lucky feel.

Amplify? Hmm, I dunno, the jokes are the same, so I can't really say which is "more hilarious" or anything (hilarious enough). But it's true that the anime really reproduced all those scenes from the novel excellently, and from the perspective of us novel readers, it's simply a joy to see the words from the novel brought to life as an animation, especially when it has captured everything so well: from the character traits to the atmosphere to even the minor details that first time anime-watchers may not even realize/notice, but score bit points with the novel-readers. (For example: that Tanabata(七夕) scene at the beginning of the OP)
