Ok, I succumbed within hours of hearing that a Raw is out T_T
So here I am with a total of 5 views with a grand total understanding of about 10% of what is being said!
Even though the Mikuru harassment is metaphorically on the same level as kicking a puppy, I'm pasted to the floor with laughter. Guess that makes me a bad person =/, sorry to all you Mikuru fans out there

Ah and one final note since I can't really say anything about the episode until I understand it...

No, this won't be a grope Mikuru every episode kind of series. I can tell you that. As unfortunate as that may be for some of you.

She does get abused quite a bit though.

Considering what happens to him again later, I say he deserves an eye-candy or two right now. ^^;

9/10. Animation is still superb, but the pacing was a little boring, even in the funny moments.

Somebody said that was a dropkick. Is it called a dropkick?, because that kick is freaking awesome.

Poor Mikuru. More abuse is needed >

By the way, is the Hyperion series just a random reference, or is there some deeper meaning/symbolism to it? A simple yes or no answer would be appreciated from people who've read the novels. Near the end the thought of
Spoiler for speculation based on episode 3 end part:
came across my mind. In Hyperion, there were 7 pilgrims (each with a unique personal history) on a voyage to visit the Shrike, a sort of mechanical god of pain. Perhaps the members of the SOS-dan each possess a unique history and are on a voyage to get pain inflicted upon them by some ultimate creator? XD;

I've been wondering about that too. but from what i gathered (read all the spoilers! too lazy to read the whole thing -_-)

The plot is nothing like Haruhi. But the characters are quite similiar in what they are.

I think its something to dig at, a subtle hint i think. we can all thank yuki for it, of course if you can't be bothered to read the book to find the hints, drop by the wiki page!

prepare to dig your eyes out as spoilers come forth and consume yoooooou!

In the movie in epiosode "0" it is apparent that all three of the characters had some sort of powers because each had a sceen that did not match the cheesy special effects. And then there was a talking cat too. I am wondering if Kyon and Haruhi might not be a Yin and Yang thing, representing the opposite sides of the same ability.

hey...thats...a thought...

perhaps the reason Kyon doesn't display any powers id because...that is his power?
To make things "normal" again, thus by his standard everything is normal.

Haruhi is Chao, Kyon is Order!

mmmmm.....sounds similiar to alot of mortal relationship i've known.

Kyon and Yuki got out of this ep relatively intact. Strangely enough, I can understand how Kyon feels when he picks up Haruhi and Mikuru's items from the ground. (Should be renamed melancholy of Kyon... the guy's face tells it all)

Luckily, there are still some of us that rather stay out of it for the sake of our own sanity. Those of us that wish for universal health care, fixed gasoline prices, tax returns and the scent of paycheques will sit by the fense as chaos reign supreme.

Although I don't really think kyon's order /Kosmos.

It is fun to watch those that are on the other shore's struggles.

Difficult to watch the series though since no one is bothering translating it and reading off OMNI's blog doesn't cut it too well either.

Ahh life is good if you can watch raws. It forces you to listen which is nice. (sadly though my reading comprehension <<< listening comprehension)

I know what you mean, I remember when i first started to watch Anime & I used to have to listen carefully to the dialogue and the scenes to figure out what was going on.

Now these days im so lazy, all i have to do is read the subs.

I almost gave this episode 10/10 but since I don't like the excessive glowing effect in Yuki's apartment and the contrast in that scene is abit too high, (the rest is still superb), originally I want to give this 9.5/10 but since it's impossible I rounded it down to 9/10
