yeah.. mikuru's is kinda a bit of history, but i think it's mostly science... time travel, and such. yuki's is kinda based on evolution, technology and... alienology? but yeah, mostly science. it IS in the sco-fi genre after all..

btw, does anyone know what TPDD means? i once thought it meant Time Plane Displacement Device but...

also... i'm kinda having a hard time with the novels. WHEN does it occur? like first year? or senior year? coz i was reading vol. 5, and kyon says somethingsomething senior year. didn't endless eight happen during their freshmen year?

P.S. take it easy on the spoilers. i havent read anything that isnt in the anime.

Just because they come from future, it don't mean they see things in a scy-fy scientifc way. They analize Haruhi purelly by an historical eyes. They are not rying to discover nothing new (like Nagato's faction), but just ensure things "will" happen as they happened.

Everything happen in their first year in hight school. Exept for the latest novel (the 9th) that it is on the second year. Here a Timeline(possible spoiler, but just chapter names). Where Kyon said anything about senior year?

Senior High School doesn't mean his senior year. It's a way to differentiate between junior high (aka middle school) and senior high (normally just called high school).

What are the chances of airing the rest of the novels? Is the series popular enough for it?

Yes, it is. It was a huge hype back in 2006. The 2009 run was considerable less so, but it still is in the Top list of DVD sales.

Let's put it like this: Any other anime that sold like Haruhi 2006 did would have had a second season within a year. Hell, an anime that sold like Haruhi 2009 is currently doing would have had a second season within a year.

But this is Haruhi.

No, this is SPAR... KADAKOWA!

So, instead of Lucky Star, it should've been Haruhi S2 after Kanon?

With any other studio, yeah. Of course, most other studios are capable of producing at least two shows at once, sacrificing quality.

I'd rather wait three years for quality, myself, but...

i feel the same way, since the story stays roughly the same, all i want to see is how it gets animated, so i put more importance on the quality rather than speed.

Though was the quality really that great immediately after three years? The benefits didn't seem to outweigh the costs.

Exactly.

Well. Sighs was great, but...

She was. More then once, actually. But she never did or said anything imortant. His father was never mentioned.

In a similar way, neither Haruhi's or Itsuki's parents were. Yuki's are inexistent, and Mikuru's are, presumably, still on future.

His mother is mentioned fairly frequently... His father, however, is only mentioned in past tense, in Vol. 9... he most likely either isn't around at all, or not very often.

Haruhi went with her family to see a baseball game when she was younger, but who knows what might've happened to them since then.

The dub had Kyon referencing both parents during the WAWAWA scene of Melancholy IV. Not sure if that counts, though.
