Hmmm.... Haruhiism...

Haruhiism is an inexplicable (for non-Haruhiists) devotion to one of the following enitites:

1) Suzumiya Haruhi
2) Kyon
3) Any other member of the SOS団
4) The SOS団 itself
5) Derivative works of the SOS団, or involving the SOS団.

This includes, but is not limited to, the serialised novels that detail the SOS団, including the anime and manga derivatives of those novels. It also includes the members of SOS団 themselves, and to a lesser degree those members' friends.

Typically, Haruhiists (those who practice Haruhiism) experience a strong desire to understand, to share or to observe details involving the above entities. Typical Haruhiist activity includes speculation and discussion of the SOS団 and its derivates, its members and their peers. Examples include, but are not limited to, the posting of such speculative material, the discussion of the most recent SOS団 activities, and the desire to capture as many images of the SOS団 as possible, displaying them in a hypnotic jumble that, while frightening to the outside observer, creates a feeling of peace and/or devotion in a Haruhiist.

The requirements of Haruhiism are not stringent; all that is needed is a belief in the SOS団 or one of its derivates, and membership is self-declared and @A*(';72KJ entirely voluntary. Members are, technically, free to leave at any time; however, this is a very rare occurence. It has been said that noone can truly cease to be a Haruhiist. Further speculation points to a theory stating that everyone is, in fact, a Haruhiist; they just have not come to realise it.

This is often cited as the reason for the strong bonding between Haruhiists and the rapid exansion of the religion as a whole.

Hurhism is not officially recognised as a religion by any major country, and does not receive tax benefits. However, that does not prevent its practitioner's desire to share or eagerness to receive Haruhi-related goodness.

There... I'll work on this a bit more later, most likely. I almost think we need a wiki...

(problem is if the novel readers get involved, the anime watchers will get totally spoiled since there'll more alot more revelations in later parts of the story that can affect the sect's understanding drastically.)

There's no wiki at wikipedia... yet.

sophimasta: Check your spelling, and it's Haruhiism/Haruhi-ism. (One for the name, the other for the suffix.)

Been trying to get them myself, but unfortunately the wiki seems to be down. I want to add these to the information/FAQ thread.

Sophismata, i have created a wiki article, based upon that great post on Haruhiism/haruhi-ism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haruhiism

I would greatly appriciate it if you can help me flesh it out.

Of course i will completely rewrite it if you object to having any of your text included in it.

All contribution are always appriciated, lets spread the word, lets us share in our Haruhiism.

It looks like the wiki article is 'marked to be deleted' and I kind of understand why... I think it would be better to instead make an article explaining/faqing the anime (i.e. put in the info from this thread and the 'all about suzumiya haruhi' thread) and then include the 'Haruhiism' bit inside that greater article.

Hehe, I will say first that I deeply appreciate the sentiment, and consider it a kind of honour... however, at this stage, "Haruhiism" itself would not be considered a notable subject by wiki standards. The problem is twofold; One, we are dealing with a subculture of a subculture, and Two, most of the references to Haruhi, or the SOS団 itself are utf-16; which means most people won't find it searching google (which can be used as a basis for defining notability).

As has been said, it is more appropriate to list it as a subset of an article on Suzumiya Haruhi itself, which is a notable subject. The problem then becomes, of course, a matter of bridging the language gap; there is far more information avaiable on the topic in Japanese than there is in English.

Anyway, I'm very tired right now, 2 AM, but I'll delve back into this forum tomorrow (or today, to be precise). It may be possible to prove Haruhiism as a notable subject on its own, but I think relating directly to the work it derives from is, at this stage, more appropriate.

The other thing to note is that my own definition was written with a deliberate bias, and was fairly tongue-in-cheek. I defined Haruhiism as the worship of a real entity, and the Suzumiya Haruhi works as representations of that entity rather than its source.

I haven't finished that thread yet! I have mark 2 ready, with updated detials (and some formatting changes); all I'm waiting on is the airing times and such. Once I have the code, I'll probably post it and hope a mod can edit the thread. If there is a serious desire to maintain an individual entry for Haruhiism, the deletion is not marked for 5 days, during which time another episode should air.

Regardless, I'm tired, and probably shouldn't do major editing right now. Sleep.

Yes, i see your point, i've been trying to flesh out the wiki article, at the moment someone already put a notice about it. i guess it does need to be merge with an article about Haruhi, at this moment I have 5 days to clean it up, and get it to standard.

edit: i have merged it with this page:

Why would you want to be spoiled? Wouldn't it be more fun to find out on your own by following the anime?

But still, I'll answer it here, but I wouldn't read it if I were you.

Hey Sushi-Y, you know which TV network Haruhi is broadcast on?

and how many episodes is planned for it?

Oh, and do you know the exact date the first episode was aired?

sorry for the questions, need to add it to the Wiki page.
