Well, I watched the raw, and really enjoyed it. Didn't understand it at all, but just watching Haruhi made me fill up with joy. Can't wait for the sub of this episode.

I can't recommend eating/drinking anything in the 5-6 minute mark of this episode... It's... dangerous to those around you ^^;;

Watched the raw, very enjoyable although I only understood the vaguest bits of the second half (the first half was a lot easier to understand). Looking forward to the subs in a few days, and the new discussion this ep is going to spin off.

It was a pretty good episode, from the 1/3 of it that I actually understood.
I loved some of the crazy acts that Haruhi performed, especially when they were trying to gather more members.
The various talks of the novel in the thread got me interested in the novel. But I'm sad I can only read hiragana...

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.
So far in the 1st 3 episodes, I really love the animation. The little facial/head movements Mikuru makes really adds to her overall cuteness. Since this is a long show, there will probably be let downs in animation quality or certain scenes or plot pacing not work as well as they could, but, so far so good.

Maybe I should stay away from the novels until the show is over. The anime seems to be holding itself up quite nicely wthout the usual comparison to some manga or game.

It's a 13 ep TV show with a DVD EP follow up (in theory)... so it's sorta likely they'll be able to keep this standard throughout.

That "noise" that Mikuru made in ep 2 when Suzumiya told Kyon to touch Mikuru's breast.... kind of a hic-squeak-eek noise. That destroyed any rational reason I might for not wanting to protect her from all things evil --- the essence of moe I suppose.

From the next episode preview, it appears there is going to be no attempts made to bridge the gap between episode 2 (3) and episode 7 (4).

Guess that makes sense in a way... We are going to be watching episodes in random order, by the looks of it. Very Haruhi.

I love this series!

Having not read the manga or even heard of the series prior to last night, I'm not entirely sure why the series events seem out of order and I don't really care. ^^:

All I have to say is: Poor Mikuru!

May the power of Moe~ guide you all!

Good episode, kinda felt the quality dipped a bit but nothing too severe. (few recycled shots, less fluid, etc.) Looks like the next episode is going back up again though.
But I did enjoy Haruhi's drop kick of doom!

It seems like Mikuru was purely built upon the concept of moe, and it really works. I usually don't like moe moe moe girls. But Mikuru is tooo cute~ <3 And her "hic-squeak-eek" noise is... so amazing.

Right on.

Once again, I direct your attention to my sig and avatar: the moe power of the magical wood-elf Gotou Yuuko, destroyer of reason.

The escalation of breast-fondling in this episode made me pretty uncomfortable, but it was not just another banal piece of fanservice, anyway.

I think Mikuru begged "don't look at me" when haruhi was stripping her, so yes, Kyon left the room for Mikuru's sake.

Common decency... embaressment... knowing that neither of them had bra's on, or the simple fact that Haruhi was walking towards Mikuru?

Its not shown clearly but as you can see later when Mikuru exits the room in her school uniform and talks to Kyon ("If I can't be a bride, will you take me?"), its clear that Haruhi's changing clothes will naturally lead to Mikuru's changing clothes (enforced by Haruhi) so Kyon is still kind of leaving for Mikuru's sake. And in any case, unlike Haruhi, Kyon is more 'common-sensical'. Wouldn't you leave if a girl has to change clothes? Or else I hope you would...

It just happens that Kyon is pretty stoic... even if Haruhi doesn't care about him seeing her naked. He wouldn't do it.

yes... a motorcycle loving, beer drinking magical wood elf who looks like she might have stepped out of an RPG/MMO. Argh... brain melting...

hmmm, I consider the "breast check" gags only effective if used sparingly (I got really tired of it in AYA and Karin.... it just got lame) --- hopefully this won't be a grope Mikuru every episode kind of series. There are plenty of other ways to make her "squeek-hic-eek" ... actually just looking at her with intent seems to do it.
