Tragic has no place in a series like this. It'd fail big time for me if they tried that. Me keeps fingers crossed.

And Suzumiya is probably about a hair's breadth away from Mikuru for me. Mikuru just won my heart with the way she speaks and the way she moves and bounces around while speaking in the '1st' episode And that's not mentioning the bunny or maid outfits either

Well we will learn of what the 'melancholy' in the title is about. As others have mentioned its not just comedy through and through but those non-comedic scenes are carried really well.

I think all of the characters (including Nagato Yuki and Koizumi Itsuki) are interesting Sure, Haruhi and Kyon themselves are the best but I think their interaction would have been limited had the other 3 members do not exist in the series.

I just hope the series doesn't go ultra-tragic ... the chaotic energy being projected is just really uplifting.

It won't really come to that, although I predict the denpa-talk later will turn off some of you in here, while sending the others into the stratosphere. The core of the story is actually somewhat of a serious one, it's just constantly buried under mountains of senseless-comedy and totally confusing talks. Every now and then, things will get serious for once (besides the denpa-talk events) and we will be able to see the "true" story behind all the disguise.

Episode 02 was a perfect anime episode if you ask me, and hopefully the episodes after this shall be the same - all i'm asking for is the same level of funny-ness that Kyon can delivery.

Despite what I thought about the way Rin's character evolved in Shuffle! -- his VA Sugita was priceless. I absolutely love his delivery and the way he flexes his voice.

Mikuru's squeaks .... ya know I keep looping those ... they're just amazing, particularly the one she emotes when Suzumiya offer's Mikuru's breasts to Kyon.

"denpa" .... (radio waves?) .... eh, we'll see - I fully expect Suzumiya to go into a lot of "Dan Ackroyd" style explanations of phenomena (reference: Ghostbusters).

Even episode 2 hints that there's definitely more to this than just comedy. My prediction (still) is that it'll turn into a character analysis for Haruhi... which I highly anticipate. She's just such a unique and truly eccentric main character that it'd be an utter shame if she isn't explored, IMO.

I don't know what you speak of; you seem to have misquoted me .

Actually, you are right, KyoAni did Air, and Tomokazu Sugita who is in both Suzimiya Haruhi and Shuffle!.

Sounds like she was crying to me.

I'd like to reiterate, again, for the umpteenth time... GOD THE HICCOUGHS ARE ADORABLE!

I want to hug her and squeeze her and kiss her and love her and comb her hair and call her "George"

Give them the red pill even if there is a hint given. I would definitely don't want to be spoiled and would like to continue to cherish every episode as it is thrown at me. The horribly spoiled know-it-all who are bursting to show off their ill gotten knowledge can eat a potato for all I care.

This episode (ep 2) gets a 9 though I wanted to add a few more decimals. The reason behind this grading is the memory of episode 1 is still fresh as I have watched the sub version twice and the raw once for that episode. Incredibly, Kyon's monolgues still yield funny.

I must say I'm loving this show. Love, love, love, love it!!!! It's been a great while since I've found myself rewatching an episode over and over and over again without getting bored. And that's because I always seem to find something new in each viewing.

Man, it's been awhile since I felt this way about an anime! I give this episode a solid 10!

Is Kyon gay? I mean, never, never has a guy not gotten a woody from another sexy girl giving a rub rub, of another cute girl's breast at near point-blank range! But then, Haruhi tells Kyon to grab them. Yet, he doesn't. And I mean, I've seen gay guys grab supermodel tities on live television, as to inspect them.

Yet...

Spoiler for Ep2²:
