Koizumi still didn't get his appearance... On top of that, we're really heading into Taikutsu next. Unless they're going to skip the rest of Yuki's "introduction", the next episode will be completely filled by Yuki's intro part 2 + Koizumi appearance + baseball competition?

Other than Koizumi being missing (he was supposed to appear between the Bunnygirl and Yuki's intro event) this episode was also another faithful reproduction of the novel. Up to around page 120 I think?

I guess having one "intro" after another would be too much for first time viewers, so they decided to pop in an action event or two in between to buffer things? It makes sense.

High points of this episode include the excellent portrayal of Kyon's powerlessness in the club room. I got a good laugh from seeing him dash for his life out of the room when Haruhi began to strip down right in front of him. Mikuru's "No! Don't look!" was perfect too. ^^; And of course, the "computer aquisition" scene I've been talking about, perfect. "I'll spread the word out that all the club members here gang ra*beep*ed this child".

The door in Yuki's room... All of you who knows what's on the other side will probably notice it, but... that's one huge door. ^^;
The musics were all excellent as usual too, they all fitted the situation perfectly, especially Yuki's intro in the end.

Windows Media Player files hate my mac T_T Had to watch it on one of my school computers... Can't laugh as loud that way... anyway...

I like how they upped the zanniness of the blackmail scene with that wonderful dropkick from Haruhi and the way she buzzed around taking compromising pictures. But having Haruhi handle the camera instead of making Kyon do it (as in the novel) does make Kyon a little less 'complicit' in Haruhi's 'mistreatment' of Mikuru.

I smiled when they put in that extra interaction (I think it is...) between Kyon and Asakura Ryoko on the way to school.

I still don't believe next week is already moving out of the 1st novel and into the 3rd. Yuki still hasn't finished her explanations. I wonder how they'll handle Itsuki and Mikuru's intro's on top of going into the 3rd novel. Which reminds me.. I better hurry up with my reading

Oh.. and "Episode 7!!!" was a nice touch

If you guys don't mind... where are you pulling the Raws from? None of the sources I usually rely on have this one posted yet.

//EDIT: nvm, reread Xris's OP ^^;; sorry

I have to hand it to KyoAni's direction with this series. It caught even the novel readers off-hand (with Vol3 out of the blue).

This really makes me wonder how far are we going to go in the novel's storyline? Season 1 ending with Vol4 (Disappearence) makes sense but...

I feel terribly bad for Mikuru. She looks to have suffered emotional traumas from the 2 events. Haruhi and her weirdness in animated form is beyond comprehension (and I think Kyon stops to make sense of her actions altogether for his own sanity)...

this has been a great episode.

That's actually quite an important clue. Since Haruhi called the Taikutsu episode "episode 7", that hints at the possibility that Yuutsu (volume 1) will actually take 6 episodes to finish (makes sense page wise). So it's likely what they're doing is sliding in events from the later volumes to "space out" the "major" events that's going to happen in the latter parts of volume 1.

Maybe something like:
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu I
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu II
Suzumiya Haruhi no Taikutsu
Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu III ?

No, really, read xris' post up top. ^^;

Well, we already know episode 4's title is going to be "Suzumiya Haruhi no Taikutsu" for a while now, so it's not that big of a surprise, but it's true that it's an odd move to all of the sudden jump to a later volume without even finishing "laying down the basic introductions". Well, Kyoani hasn't disappointed anyone so far, so we'll see.

So far KyoAni seems to be doing well with rearranging things, and it may be more appropriate for the animated version. Novels and anime are two completely different mediums for telling stories, of course...

Loved episode three~ More Haruhi craziness~ <3 And of course, I can't wait for the next episode. ^__^;

I like how the screen gets warm and fuzzy on some of the close-ups of Mikuru. Ahh~

That's an interesting observation about 'episode 7'. Vol 1 definitely needs a lot more screen time to finish it off. Compressing it doesn't look like it would work as those events are really important. So they may actually be doing what I had asked earlier in a different thread - rearranging events to interperse between the major character intros/explanations.

Or perhaps they're skipping non-critical events and planning on introducing them later in the form of DVD EP's? But that doesn't make sense considering the currently released schedule. Thus far (2-3 ep's in) the show has yet to disappoint, so I'm sure they've got something in mind.

I guess we'll debate it endlessly, and find out in a week? ^^;;

DAMN, I hate Suzumiya already for abusing poor Mikuru so much.

I am absolutely not into moe-moe-puni-puni characters at all, and if it was just Mikuru on her own, I wouldn't have paid too much attention to her, but Haruhi is pushing it. Don't you feel sorry for the poor girl?!

I feel terribly ashamed at laughing so hard at her miseries! I know I shouldn't, but Haruhi is unbearably funny in addition to being mindlessly cruel.

I wish I knew how to quit ya, Suzumiya!
