Anyways, I watched this again, as closely as possible, and yeah, the personal verdict is... masterpiece. I don't remember what grade I gave it but I was wrong. And I'm sure I'll like it more and more as I am reading the novels.

I completely agree with C.A about DS 39's statement.

And yeah, as I said somewhere, i felt that "wtf did I dl!?" thing too. I even deleted the file once...

Argh, is this what some call "youth mistake"?


edit : I just read on another thread about the italics. ^^

I know I reacted like it. My exact thought was "What the heck did I d/led?". Then I watched until the last second because there were a time I was watching those badly done home videos for the breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Exactly how I felt when I encountered the first episode of this series. Nonetheless, very clever creation. Very entertaining indeed!

I've always thought that the "let's dance" thing in the open was in relation to how a "cool" fighter would start his fight by telling his opponent this.

True, but "let's dance" dosen't sound as corny as that.

And it implies grace and precision that ol' meatball head doesn't have...

I think the 'leaving in the same direction' was the point where I started laughing and lost the ability to stop.

Your 20 points are right on target, but I cannot say it is comprehensive. I exaggerate, but I say every single frame of animation in episode 00 01 deserves an honorable mention ! I'm prone to laugh at the slightest bit of humor, so I could not stop enjoying myself since the very beginning of this episode, especially after a rewatch. I've actually enjoyed rewinding and rewatching this silly OP quite a few times. The "ventriloquism" shot was unusually comical too. *bonk in the face* This episode is priceless.

All I can say is:

I-Feel-Kyon's-Pain.

It is not easy to do a passably dignified no-budget student film, even one that only lasts 15 minutes. (Here are 2 personal expamples, made 3 and 2 years ago)

Example 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p92seSUzOqk
Example 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAvbJ9aPElw


But Ms Suzumiya manages to pull off a 30 minute feature. And terrible as it may be, her love and enthusiasm for the project is genunie and sincere, and I frankly respect her for it.

I rated the first episode as a ten because after I watched it, I was instantly hooked onto now what is one of my most favorite anime series!

Ah, this brings me back to the day I first watched Fullmetal Alchemist...

Yes Haruhi episode 1 is the most amazing thing ever created. Those who watched and saw the brilliance in this is specially blessed by Haruhi-sama, you have recieved a gift from the Goddess herself.

Treasure what you have seen, this miracle that cannot be seen by all.

I've watched the series in chronological order and also airing order of course airing order first. I can't help but read into the conversation between Yuki and Itsuki at the sleeping Asahina scene where Yuki talks about joining together rather than 'pluck out the possibilities of the future' with asahina.
Itsuki also talks about 'he' first, which i think refers to Kyon, and that Kyon is the key to unlocking the door(Haruhi?) and change... the universe??? And then he goes on to say that he doesn't have enough authority and 'we'(his organisation) needs time to think, then Yuki says its not the time to tell the whole truth. I haven't read the novels so i have no idea if this is significant or not but i do know a whole volume was used for the making of this movie so it should be important. Anyone know anything or got any ideas?

Anyway.

Its funny how each character actually got the role that they actually had in real life and i still have no idea how/why Shamisen can talk and why Kyon wasn't freaking out about it, its probably explained in the novel.

Love the randomness of this ep, Itsuki's finger and nose thing is so funny, Yuki trying to keep Shamisen from falling is so cute, Kyon's comments are hilarious and love the last part when the credits are rolling
