That's true, although Haruhi's treatment of Mikuru in this episode was mean, it was still within the "can be laughed off as a joke" level. Some of the things Haruhi did in volume 2, on the other hand, really begins to push against that "funny/not funny" borderline (although she didn't really mean it). But then again, it all adds to the realism of Haruhi's character, don't you think? Haruhi's not Haruhi unless she's always dashing ahead at full-speed, ignoring all traffic signs.

Spoiler for volume 2 scene:

Of course, we don't even know if the anime would even bother to go back to volume 2 again, so maybe we won't get to see that scene at all.

That's right, normal tsunderes have "tsun" and "dere" parts, but in Haruhi's case, it's more like "tsun" and "stealth dere". (That other scene you mentioned above there is a good example of Haruhi's "stealth dere")

Spoiler for Haruhi and Kyon's relationship:


Ah, I should add something about this episode too. Er... um... ah...

Am I the only one who thinks Yuki's hands are very sexy? ^^;;

And then they accuse me of forming a Mikuru Liberation Army. If I was Kyon, I'd give Haruhi a piece of my mind. Poor fellow.

Kyon needs green hair sempi to slap some backbone into his back

Spoiler:
That is the duality of the subject matter. Utilitarian will simply either say that a 'greater good' can be generated or that these acts of abuse has no downside from the perspective of the result as to prevent them. On the other hand moralists, relative or absolute will argue to infringements to fundamental 'rules' of these acts are not tolerable/wrong and gains do not take away from the impact of those infringements.

Spoiler:


Looking at the visage that is yourself proves to be difficult... putting complicity aside there's the burden of arrogance to be answered. To make matters worse shames that adult put shroud/clothes over in silent recognition and to see such ugliness, unabridged and naked...blatently displayed.

In kyon's defense, he has a backbone. As a matter of fact Yuki and Itsuki have that as well. However, to put into context (and not spoil the story) let's just say Haruhi holds significent deterrence in her hands to keep the SOS at bay.

Most of the more better shows only have one or two groups subbing them. MO and Fate only has 2 groups each. Maybe the subbing groups are learning thier lesson about over subbing a series. We don't need to have 5 different groups subbing the same series.

If I may be a nit-picky here myself, the round about of 9.5 should have been 10. Nontheless, I agree with the grading 9. Only episode 1 deserved a 10 for all the weirdness and the hilarious OP. Too bad the Mikuru-version of the opening song isn't kept through out the series.

While less funny than the previous two, we get a glimpse of the more serious side of the story as Kyon was called into Nagato's condo.

Glad I kept the HD recorder set to record all of Suzumiya Haruhi this season. I would've cried in vain for missing it after spending several days in the hospital due to food poisoning.

I loved the part where Haruhi locks the clubroom door and Kyon and Mikuru both go "OH ^HIT!!!!" And later when Kyon bails out of the clubroom when he sees Haruhi strating to strip down. LMAO Those scenes were hilarious.

Owie. I was just wondering that why didn't you vote in the F/SN thread :^).

Glad you are all right now.

Just watched the new ep, and read the whole thread. Here is my take on the debate: Haruhi is Cthulhu in a more appealing package

They left a big cliff hanger there on skipping the explanation of what Suzumiya Haruhi is, (i know some ppl have explained it before but im trying to skip that and waiting to learn from show)

lol i cant stop laughin when ever i see the computer part that was just brilliantly done, sad how easily that would prob work in real life to some extent

I just watch 1, 2, and 3. I'd read the synopsis a while back and thought it was just wacky comedy, so I was a bit surprised in the first episode when there was a talking cat, and it looked like Itsuki actually used some sort of power.

After watching all 3, visiting here, and rewatching bits of 1, I understood that Yuki beat on Mikuru, because the first time, she actually did use her eye beam, and that was the only time her eye actually changed color. After visiting these forums, and looking at the episode 1 thread, I rewatched the Yuki/Itsuki conversation, with Itsuki's "he" and a knowing look at the cameraman. Mikuru's comments in this episode were very telling, where as her episode 2 comments just added to mystery.

This series is too funny, and more than a bit mysterious as well. It seems to me (I haven't read the novels, so I wouldn't actually know.) that Haruhi herself is aware of the strangeness to the degree that she's endlessly searching for those mysteries, but not the details. Maybe that's part of why she's so short-tempered and frustrated with the common world. Despite her not seeming particularly melancholic outside of Kyon watching her standing around in the 2nd episode, it's in the title, and I don't think it's a ruse. She didn't understand why Yuki physically attacked Mikuru in the first episode. Or why Kyon forced her to repeat that it was a complete work of fiction during the credits, despite Haruhi thinking that she made up a lot of the story her own.

Somehow I must resist reading the spoilers here, I probably shouldn't visit too often.

I voted a 9.

Wow.. words cannot express how sorry I am for Mikuru after this episode.. and it seems to be only a foreshadowing of what is to come (only ep 3), seeing Mikuru crying so pitifully yet accepting her fate? I retract my GTO statement from ep 2, Suzumiya Haruhi is far different... I wonder why Kyon was given Hyperion though. Parallels between the Shrike and Haruhi?

This episode is excellent, as usual. I do feel sorry for Mikuru though. The amount of abuse she is put through would make anyone weep. And Haruhi's efficiency and ruthlessness in achieving her goals make many of our world leaders look like angels in comparison.

I do find the part where Mikuru asks Kyon if he will take her if she can't be a bride rather cute. And of course, Haruhi and Mikuru in bunny girl suits is an automatic win.

9/10 for this episode.
