Heh, I had to completely change my view of this anime. It looks it is much closer to drama or even a tragedy. Suzumiya really is like a kind of Greek goddess and she really meant what she said, she doesn't care about normal people, she see them more like a tools, Mikuru is there only to be a mascot, she is a tool to bring attention. I mean, in Haruhiís eyes she really is a tool, unable to feel emotions on the same level as Suzumiya or Kyon do. Mikuru isn't a normal moe character, she is forced to be one, it states her behavior in second episode in complete new light. I really didn't enjoy third episode as a comedy, but with this one I have even higher expectation than before.

I noticed in this episode a.f.k overwrites the japanese characters completely maybe to make the text more readable. Well, I don't mind There seems to be some guest seiyuu in this ep for computer guys.

Much appreciated and keep going

That's it! That's the word I was looking for to describe Haruhi's action in this episode: ruthless. She basically presses on regardless how others may suffer because of it. She's still a fun character but it's hard not to feel sorry for the others while she steps on them to do her bidding.

Haruhi is a force of nature, men must yield before her path lest they be swept away by her incontrovertable power.

Aha! so we get into the meat of the series! So let's get the petty stuff out of the way first. I throughly enjoyed the episode, there was some pacing issues that some of you have noted about, but I didn't notice it as much (maybe because I haven't actually read the novels yet...)

Spoiler for Assumptions, Predictions and all that Good Stuff:


Animation is again top notch, especially the alien encounter glow that sets the mysterious mood in Yuki's apartment. Also, Haruhi's ability to smile cutely while extorting the computer research club is simply gold.

Ok now for the parts that could get me in trouble in which I will spoiler so that those who choose to avoid my thoughts can do so
Spoiler for oh noes trouble ahead!:


Also, Eclipze I don't think your example is very fitting of Haruhi's character as the intent to harm is already inherent in the action. Regardless if you didn't mean to harm someone else, the intent to harm is already present in that case. In Haruhi's case, she's more like a child trying to get your attention by pulling the tail of a cat who is clearly not enjoying the aggrivation. You (for example are the owner of the cat) aren't very happy since the child is basically torturing your cat, so you scold them. Mission success for the child as (s)he has obtained your attention now.

Speaking of which: @TheLastGuardian & Melange

Forget Mikurui. I'll take Yuki, she can take me to her apartment and make me tea any time.
Tea FTW!!!

I definitely feel that Haruhi is attracted to Kyon but I somehow feel I've missed why she suddenly became interested in him. Was it, as is seems, purely because he showed some interest in her and took the time to talk to her? Kyon is curios about Haruhi but has not show any real romantic interest in her.

I've warmed to Kyon's character, particularly his honesty when he said he sort of want to see Mikurui in the bunny costume. It seemed a very human reaction and he did not gloss over his failing. He always seem to think and react how I know I probably would, for better or worse. To be honest Haruhi would be fun to be around and I can imagine secretly enjoying being dragged around by Haruhi and her wild plans.... and why not, it certainly wouldn't be boring. We need more Haruhi's in the world!!





Actually there is a young girl I know who started an anime club and tends to want to rope me into things like plays.... (at my age!)
She is a good girl (with a bit of a temper) but I think I might start calling her Haruhi.

Ah it makes sense now, but I swear this is the last time I'll be spoiled! Thanks for the insight!
Oh and you might want to complete my spoiler tag, I don't want to be peppered even more because of spoiling than I'm gonna be after my comments on Mikuru

Edit: Thanks Thelastguardian

Sadism is part and parcel of a lot of humor Look at those cartoons like Bugs Bunny, Loderunner etc. Look at moments in anime such as Magikano (poor Haruo) and Love Hina (Keitaro being sent into orbit by Naru). Look at the many jokes that are commonly told; a lot of them predicate at least one poor individual or group who ends up being laughed at. It can be said that in indulging in humor we are all sadistic to some degree

I will give her a copy of anime and teasingly suggest there is a similarity.

Its more likely that Haruhi wouldn't care less... "dan88? Who's that? Oh it doesn't matter!"

Just as Max Payne's narriation describes, the dead answers alot more than the live. Here's to another self-narriator!

Wow! Haruhi sure is a wicked evil bitch and she is really! enjoyable to watch

Poor Mikuru I dont know what I'm more sad about, the fact her character doesn't have a huge backbone to it and is kinda simple >.> (though mabye they might expand on her character a bit..) or that she gets kick around by queen bitch >.>

Well I love Kyon voice, though I wish his character was a bit less go with flow of things and didn't have the same tone of voice nearly all! of the time. Even though I would rather a few things to be different, he is still enjoyable to watch This Episode was ok but still ep.1 is the best in the show, I would love! to see more of the filming process with the characters ^^

ok that blackmailing of the computer club had to be one of the most cruelist things i have seen in a long time (even though i laughed through the whole thing) Those poor bastards didnt even have a chance to log off their porn. Suzumiya is a force you hope doesnt notice you and just strolls by. You know that saying you've called down the thunder now reap the whirlwind well in this case she ismore like a hurrican the likes the world has never seen. She does treat people like tools i mean when Asahina said if i become ruined marriage will your take me almost broke my heart. But she started talking about timelines and stuff could she be from the future and Nagato telllng Kyon shes an alien (by the way what was up with all the tea) I think this series is just going to get wilder from here. Im also voting Suzumiya as the cutest tyrant ever even watching her for some reason reminds me of watching the history channel about Hitler's SS



All hail the SOS oh god please dont hurt me

I dunno guys, I couldn't help but just laugh at the entire episode. If I vote good for this episode and laugh at Haruhi's antics, does that make me a bad person?

Personally I'm a fan of Haruhi hands (No I'm not biased)
But a cookie to whoever can answer correctly on how Haruhi gets such <insert adjective> feminine fingers (if she were real.)



Hint: it has been shown in the anime already.

...Yes I'm bored.
