For Kasuga I meant none other than Kasuga Ayumu. The connection occured when I looked at the name in Kanji btw.

Are their names similar in kanji? That's interesting. Character-wise their completely different tho. Although both of them are quirky.

Well... everywhere I looked I saw nothing but "Haruhi" avi's and sig's.., at the time I didn't even know what anime they where from, or who she even was..

So.., I asked in a post and then I was directed here thanks to Fict ficious (thanks)
Needless to say I started reading the posts..., and honestly at first I couldn't have heads or tails out of this anime..

Even so.., given the tremendous amount of "Haruhiism" worshipers arround I decided to give it a shot and download the first episode...
After I saw it I thought to myself..., no.. its just too stupid to be true (this in a good way though)..., its just Too stupid !

All and all, everything then made sence in what related to the forum posts...
It realy seems to be a amazing comedy this series.., I'm taking a guess into putting it more or less like Excel Saga (but not as much chaos)

Either way I am downloading the 2nd episode as we speak..; and I understand now how many people have converted to the Karuhiism
So.. I think i'm going to follow this serie, thus count me into the cult aswell.

If anyone who hasn't seen this yet and is looking for a few laughts.., download the first 2 episodes, they are realy worth it

I'm glad you like it, but unfortuntely it not really like Excel Saga, i don't want to spoil anythin, but it does have a serious plot to the whole thing, so you could say, its chao with a purpose. or is that an oxymoron?

no wait its haruhiism.

Thanks for the info. Now I know how to do what Haruhi did to her former school. Maybe I should do the same thing to my school

I see, well then in that case. I'm in error.

Slugzilla thank you for your help, at leased your reply, was something I could understand and was far more civil, then what i experienced on the Suzumiya Haruhi Wiki artcile discussion page:

Quote:
>"I can see why you would think Mikuru has no powers, i mean she can shoot out the camera with her eye"
Riiiiiiiight.
And just when did she shoot out the camera? Oh, right, never. That bit where the screen went black? That's Yuki's hand covering the lens.
Look, I already quoted the damned book on the subject. Once again. 涼宮ハルヒの溜息, pages 141-142. 「これは朝比奈さんに元から備わっていた機能なのでしょうか?」「ない」「これは涼宮さんの仕業ですね。彼 女がミクルビームがあって欲しいと思ったから、現実がそのように変化したと、そういうことです 」「そう」. It's also clearly stated (several times, even?) that Mikuru is a normal human with no powers at all. I'm pretty sure that the books are a better source of information on this than some random person who hasn't even read them.

Spoiler for Sushi-Y's post:


Although... I'm curious Sushi-Y... your last post seems to directly contridict a post made by Thelastguardian over in the "Episode 3 Discussion / Poll" thread, which seems to be an ongoing discussion you two were having. I can provide additional links if necessary, but the conversation seems to stretch across page 2/3 of that thread.

//EDIT: Gah... tons of edit's... apologies to anyone who was unfortunate enough to read this while I was trying to clean up my thoughts T_T

Also... can anyone translate omgwtflolz's japanese quote's from the novel that he transcribed into the wiki? I'm assuming knowing the exact lines from the novels will clear up at least a little bit of the confusion... or just the gist of what he's quoting?

Ultimately I think we'll get all our answers by the end of the anime... but I'm sorta curious ^_^

Kyon's thoughts and actions as he witnesses all of this is what makes this show.

It's just like any of us if we were to step into an anime since we question a lot of ridiculous aspects that go unquestioned in anime (IE why does Sailor Moon and Usagi look alike yet no one notices?)

lol.
the law of anime my friend the law of anime. And i won't be surprised if kyon was in sailor moon, he would of gone:

"are you people blind?! Can't you see Usagi IS Sailor Moon???!?!?!"

lololol.

Adigard, i too would of like to know what omgwtflolz quotes mean, alternatively it would of been better if he translated it himself but apparently that is beneath him as an Expert of Haruhiism since he can read Japanese.

I wonder if he's from 2ch?

I'm beginning to wish I discovered this anime only after it was finished. Waiting a week for only 22 minutes is Mikuru-level abuse.

(I am glad that you didn't need to go through Figure 17. That was wait 1 month for 1hr. That wait was truly painful.)

eh. you call that painful?

I had to wait approx 6-8months for 40mins for Topo wo Narae 2, for just one episode.

that was almost worse then no sexual gratification for four weeks in a row. almost.
T-T

ok. you win.

may haruhi have mercy on your soul.



lets get back on topic, concerning haruhi, can we conclude that she actually listens to kyon?

I mean i might be strecthing on a limb here, but why does she listen to him? why does she pay attenion to him? why him, a NORMAL human? something Haruhi is always forever against?

It's a real mystery.

While people say and within the known animation and novel that has been read so far I ( been lead to believe by people who have read the novel) that he has no powers.

but perhaps the lack of power, is an advantage in it self?

hmmmm....

*wish he was kyon to be near Haruhi, yuki and Mikuru*

Waiting for both figure 17 and gunbuster 2 was not even half as painful as waiting a week for the next episode of Haruhi. I don't think I've ever been so enamored over any anime as to stay up till 5 am searching desperately for the next raw.

... Christ, I'm in love with an anime character. Like obsessive/complusive love.
