Being forced on a relationship seems ugly but its not all so bad, after all Japan has a great deal of aranged marriages, though awkward at first they get used to it as they get to know each other. I'm sure Kyon will get used to it down the road.

the difference with modern arranged marriages and forced relationship, is that with arrange marriages, you can refuse them. As in kyon case, its a necessary thing, if he doesn't get on with Haruhi he's sacrificing the entire universe just for one woman. While it might be romantic in some aspect, not exactly something you have a choice, is it?
And unlike Arrange marriages, if you don't like the person you can still divorce them. too bad Kyon doesn't have this option either...

Basicially, It's a man's worse nightmare.

Besides, even if kyon did refuse, Haruhi would probably just create a new universe in which he didn't, so it would be pointless to resist.

Anyway, I gave this episode an 8. It was a bit predictable, but still well executed. As soon as Itsuki mentioned the possibility of a typhoon cutting them off, I knew exactly what would happen... Though I think that was the point.

Still, the episode did have it's moments. Kyon's sister scored points in this episode for the "loli in a bag" as it's been dubbed, as did Yuki for reading a book while water skiing and the "daisuki" scene. It's safe to say Yuki is now my favorite character in this series. Sorry Mikuru...

Hmm. Pretty minor gripe, but I noticed what I think is a minor translation mistake in the fansub - at 06:55 into the ep, Kyon talks about a building that'd satisfy Haruhi. ie something "gaudy" etc. However, I think he means a building by Gaudi:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Categor...3%AD_buildings

He seems to be fairly well known in Japan...

The only "real" problem with Haruhi with her cuteness and energy ... is she's completely exhausting to be in contact for very long. I don't get the impression Kyon really *minds* being with Haruhi (he frequently notes how attractive she is (along with Yuki and Mikuru) --- its the feeling he's being dragged into it that bothers him.

That's probably the crux of the series --- whether Kyon will come to grips with the situation and explicitly decide that he *likes* being with Haruhi

At least that's my meta-theory for the next 5 minutes.

Geez ... she was exhausting me just from watching the show ... XD

Not only is she always active ... she wins at everything (except Old Maid :P), and apparently always makes Kyon lose (that boy must have to steal to be able to pay for all the snacks and drinks he is always purchasing for the club XD)

Pretty amusing episode for a fan service filler.

Yuki still stands as the funniest character in the show for me, every time i laugh watching this series is when Yuki does something amusing/amazing.

Reading while skiing, chopstick skillz and daisuki

loli in a bag

Haruhi and Mikuru eye candy

gives this episode a 9.

Too bad there was no giant squid lol.

The level of popularity makes me wonder just when Haruhi gets licensed.

Hopefully not until the season/series is finished :P

Person #2 to get picked on by Haruhi the most...Mikuru!

I'd like to see the mature version later....wouldn't it be funny if the cause of all this is Kyon?

I'm willing to bet that it's really Kyon that started the entire mess 3 years ago and not Haruhi.

Er... Will next episode be the sequel to this one, or will there be another timeskip?

Other good moment, not mentionned enough: Koizumi's promotion. What are the ranks of the SOS Brigade?

Hmm ... I found it interesting that Mikuru was ordered to take pictures of an unconscious Kyon so that Haruhi could pocket them XD

She says it's to serve as a warning for future generations ... but we all know that's not the truth

Whatever Haruhi wants it to be at the moment. Though I have a feeling either kyon or Mikuru is considered by Haruhi to be outside the chain of command.

A few possibilities. She may have realized that she didn't know which room it was. More likely she knew what they were going to find at some level. At least that's what I'm thinking.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!!

When I first saw that scene, my first thought was exactly in the same veign: ignore the blather, and closely examine what she's not saying.
