I think he watched it both ways but chose that as a point to strengthen his argument. Obviously he doesn't get that it's parodying the character stereotypes, etc.

Personally, I thought the show was meh. The novels are much better.

Anime Insider magazine #44 (May/07 issue) has a couple of Haruhi-related articles in it:

The A.I. Five: Top 5 reasons you'll love The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya:(page 20)
  1. The animation is spectacular
  2. It's comedy gold
  3. You'll join the cult
  4. There's real strength of character
  5. It's a true original
And the "Must See" box in the May DVD releases section (page 66).

Yeah Big Mikuru knows hows it all ends, theoretically of course, and she just has to make sure it happens that way. We still don't know the age of either of the Mikurus so who knows how much older big is from.

Well, going by appearances in the series, which has enough of the author's involvement to be considered canon, I'd say she's less that 10 years older. Still, since we don't know how old Mikuru (small) is, that doesn't say too much. I'd guess Mikuru (small) is about 16, give or take a year or two, as of the beginning of Volume 9. That would make Mikuru (big) somewhere in her mid 20's, between 22 and 27, I'd guess. Of course, we don't know how far apart her various appearances are, or if they're even in chronological order.

I agree that this series is amazing... after a few episodes I was giddy! I only get giddy if I really love a series.

The May issue of Newtype USA has a two page spread about Haruhi... I'm wondering if they used any of the text from a similar spread in last year's Newtype:

Vol. 1 episodes 1-4 are released in the states in a few weeks. There is a limited edition that comes with the soundtrack, a haruhi~ism iron on, a cosplay ribion, and a double sided pencil board. ( all in a cool case)

According to this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Melancholy-H...7898933&sr=8-1 it'll be out at the same time here in the UK, though im a bit sceptical about it. I want the special edition so ill be importing it if it doesnt come out in the UK, which they usually dont

I have several things I want to say. I have been hearing how Haruhi likes Kyon and that it's the pairing that will come sooner or later, or something like that, and that Mikuru is an older Kyon's sister (forgive me if I misunderstood something). What I have to say to this I will put into the spoiler tab and I'm unsure if what I type will be spoilers (possible though).

Spoiler:


I know that I may have missed something and that I will get burned by a great many of you for #3. I only wish that you will remember that it's just a scenerio/theory I came up with.

Not sure about the sister thing, and not really sure WHY she likes him. You actually stumped me.

Actually, I think I gotta agree with fat. Doubt she liked him at first. He was just another boring boy. But after they began talking and she saw he was not interested in her, he grew on her. Not sure if he seems similar to John to her, but I think its just been over time she grew to like him.

The first words out of her mouth when he struck up a conversation with her were: "Haven't I seen you somewhere before?"

Don't forget, the one thing that prevents her from putting two and two together is that John Smith was suppose to be older than her, and would have since graduated from North High rather than be starting school in her class.

Haruhi's clever brain and hidden disbelief of the supernatural is working against her in that regard.

After I thought of #2, I thought of more to it.

Perhaps the reason why she had that boyfriend reputation was because after she couldn't find him in North High, she readily accepted any boy who called her, thinking that maybe one of them was him, and after finding that the boy who called wasn't him, dumped him. The week long relationship was probably the boy making a date with her a week later, or something I dunno I don't recall the first novel entirely.

I may be going further than I should by thinking that maybe the reason why Haruhi was exploring around the school was because she wanted to find out more information about him and where he went after "graduating" the school.

I'm starting to think that I'm adding a great deal of fuel to fanfics here.

I thought that was more or less what novel 4 directly stated. Or maybe I'm just misunderstanding you.
