Just from looking at these avatars, the animation quality is sickeningly good.

Is this by Kyoto Animation? Has Air been dethroned!?!?

Yes! Haruhi is animated by Kyoto Animation~ In terms of art direction, it's quite different from Air since it's 95% comedy (A safer comparison would be Kanon).

AIR wasn't holding the throne to be precise. But yeah, Suzumiya Haruhi is by Kyoto Animation and on top of that lightyears ahead of the current standard. :)

And to add one more gif, asuki safe/not safe. :)

I still don't believe it has happened to me but when I look at the scribbles on my class notes I can safely say it has....

I'm sold after watching two eps of this.
I've officially converted to Haruhi-ism.

Kyoto Animation and Noizi Itou combined is just too godly.

DVDs are expensive...

In the 'many hairstyles' moments Haruhi looks too reminiscent to Shana for my tastes. I really do prefer her with her more stable 'post-Kyon' look

I got the first episode late last night, and damn I kept waking everyone with my falling out of my chair and laughing. This show is simply too good, it's got me hooked from the get-go.

Needless to say, I'm pining for the next episode subbed

LOL That banner was made from a momentary joke-reference to the 'Uncle Sam' ad that struck me when I was showing a friend some screenshots. Didn't really think of it as an ACTUAL army.... hmm.. maybe we should set one up... or perhaps a HHH (yet another Shuffle reference) or something.

Woo! a Haruhi army! I got my gun ready (pending confirmation from Woland of course)
But recruiting comes first, all those in favour of a Haruhi Army, please stand up!

That sounds like a standard kj1980 question, but I'll provide a few reasons first:
- Unlike western television shows (most of which have giant corporate backings), animes (animation companies) rely a great deal on DVD sales as a source of their income and budget (on top of sponsors).
- Like many other Japanese products you might see in your daily life, you'll know that the Japanese places a silly amount of attention on product quality and presentation. Even if nobody ever notice, the contents on legitimate Japanese DVDs usually feature the best video and audio qualities you'll find anywhere.
- Although anime is a giant industry as a whole, individual animes on their own aren't that big: limited fanbase and exposure, appeals only to certain groups, etc. So each sale has to count.
- Although the above point sounds a little unreasonable, the fact is that otakus ARE willing to shell out their money for these DVDs, so "if this is the standard price, and it's selling, then keep it this way".

As for the schedule, unlike western TV programs, where DVDs are usually released as whole "season packages", anime DVDs are being released while the show is still on the air ("strike while the iron's hot", rather than wait until everything's over and interest level drops) so there tends to be some gap between releases while they sync with the airing schedule. Other than that, the gap is just the normal time it takes to put together a single DVD volume

Just watch on, and you'll find out eventually.

I'm beginning to think that having "Asahina Mikuru no Bouken" as the first episode was a correct choice after all. I think Kyoani is trying to go this way: once you learn more and more about the characters and plot, you'll slowly learn about why and how things happen. Eventually, the anime will probably go up to the point where SOS-dan starts filming the movie (novel volume 2), and that's where you'll finally see the production process of the movie which will make you go "OH, THAT'S WHY! HAHAHA". Like the reason why Yuki jumped Mikuru during the park battle scene, the reason why Mikuru is advertising for all these shops, the reason for the flock of doves at the beginning of episode00's opening, etc.

I am edified!

Well, I don't want to get into an argument about this since there's obviously no way of it bearing any meaning in any sense (and this is really a tangent to the thread), but I wonder if they'd considered that by lowering their prices, they might be able to grow their audience...

I guess word of mouth doesn't work the same way over there as it does here...

BACK ON TOPIC: I feel like a junkie, waiting for my next Haruhi fix... I got the shakes real bad...

Haha I know what you mean. You could always get the Raw of episode 2 and watch that without a wink of knowledge of what's going on to satiate the hunger...that is unless you already have episode 2 and understand everything. IN that case, I really feel sorry for you

I've been waiting for the sub. I figure.. if I watch the RAW, then all the sight gags'll be spoiled...

I've been downloading some other subs... but it's like going to a methodone clinic... it's just not the real stuff... the good stuff...
