As for Itsuki, mister "I look normal, but I'm an esper", his explanation happaned in a very normal-looking place... or did it? What kind of school has tables and chairs made of wooden logs like that? I'm not sure about japan, but I know over here, they'd get cheap plastic or metal, if they had tables outside at all.

working together, or it'll be some kind of crime.
Yeah,I think mikuru's special effects not only showed her origin but also explained her conception of time.And I understood absolutely nothing of what she said.The guys in the Ontology of Suzumyia Haruihi thread are going to have fun with this ep.

I gave this 10 simply because the cinematography is just too good and the OST fits the character who's explaining. Maybe someone feels this as heavy dialogue episode, but I won't give lower rate because of it. I think the dialogue is really important story development and more importantly a good scientific episode too. Stuffs about quantized space and time theory is described by moe-looking Mikuru-chan by using simple animation frame analogy. Mikuru is genius

I gave the episode a 9 overall. However, Yuki's explaination at the beginning gets a 10. I give her seiyuu a lot of credit for that scene. If you listen closely, the dialog sounds artifical, as it should given Yuki's origin. That part was done perfectly.

The rest of the episode gets an 8. There were a few small details I would have liked to see that were left out. It's understandable though, as even with Haruhi as super director, KyoAni can only fit so much into 23 minutes, and it's not like they mattered. There was one bit I was especially looking foward to, but it's possible they'll have it at the begining of the next episode to pickup the main story.

watched it again.

Haruhi not pairing with Kyon = Haruhi jealous.

Funniest part of the whole show is having to watch Haruhi's expression of jealousy

Overpowered and perfect male leads? Most male anime leads these days seem to be bumbling, marginalized idiots. T_T

Kyon's a wonderful breath of fresh air because he's a great everyman... who even asks the right questions. You really can relate to him. And that really ties the show together.

I want to watch the episode at home before I really vote/post about it. But on my initial viewing the show is really positive. They did a nice job by inserting that baseball episode between this episode and the previous episode. It picked up seemlessly from the prior cliffhanger, but the viewer was able to deal with a "wall o' text" type episode without getting buried. A lot of the visual/audio tricks they used during each characters explanations worked really nicely as well. Doubly so in reflecting Kyon's reactions.

//EDIT: I also appreciated how everyone presented Haruhi in a totally different light. Each organization obviously has a slightly different view of Haruhi. I think it'd be a real mistake to assume each person's view of Haruhi overlaps... or even fits together nicely. There seem to be enough slight nuances and differences of opinion between the three "groups" that point out their differing viewpoints.

SOmone probably already speculate this.


I beleived Kyon is NOT a normal human being but is infact the anti-Haruhi. For everything there is a opposite and I beleived what Kyon to Haruhi is what matter is to Anti-matter.

hmmm.. so how can you explain the fact that Haruhi has feelings for Kyon as she has for no one else..
Can it be a case of oposites atracting?
I honestly don't think so..., currently while speculating over Kyon I have a feeling that our minds will make up more then the actualy story is about

You remember Haruhi's introduction? She definitely mentioned four things: aliens, time travelers, other worldly beings, ESP. Although aliens and other worldy beings are similar; I just got to thinking that the SOS団 has Haruhi and 4 members, and she mentioned 4 beings in her introduction.

Winners for this episode goes to seeing Haruhi pissed and Yuki at the library. ^^
Also loved the three explanations, although I liked the Yuki's the most. Everything went by so fast, and then Kyon immediate reaction was ... When I saw Kyon react, I appreciated him more.

My favourite moment in episode 5 has to be when Kyon asked Haruhi if she had ever heard the story on "The Blue Bird of Happiness".

For those not familiar with the tale, it's about some children who went on a magical journey to obtain the blue bird. They traveled to numerous dimensions, and faced many perils, but each time they failed.

Eventually, they went home in defeat. But then realised that their own pet bird, living in its cage in their room, was the blue bird they were looking for.

Don't give Haruhi any ideas, or kyon will wake up one day to find his house converted into some interdimensional command center with his parents telling him it's time to carry out their mission to conquer this world.

Anyway, my theory about kyon is that he is more or less a normal human, but was the first person Haruhi thought might understand her. So while he doesn't have any powers himself, he can influence Haruhi somewhat and stop her from doing anything too extreme. This would seem to fit with everyone calling him the key. Of course, if Haruhi ever decides kyon should have some kind of power, be from another dimension, or something, he will. Though I doubt it'll happen...

Thanks for the explanation Vallen Valiant Chaos. I was about to ask about / google that, and forgot about it. How fitting.

Maybe, to some extent. I find Kyon usually lost in whatever Haruhi does / wants to do. On a side note, he DID find himself going back to the clubroom in ep2 even if he didn't really want to. There must be some sort of connection or pull between him and Haruhi.

This anime seems like a light-hearted version of Lathe of Heaven. The whole world responding to one person's will.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lathe_of_Heaven

Voted a 9 again, just because I can't allow myself to give a 10. This episode had some really neat cinematography, as was noted earlier by others.

I wonder if Yuki and Mikuru ever consider their existences as related to Haruhi in the manner that Koizumi describes. They don't seem to, I suppose they might find it overwhelming if they did.

Evidently I remember it better than you, as the four she mentions are Aliens, Time Travelers, Sliders amd Espers. A Slider would be someone who can dimension jump.
