Does Itsuki have a love of board games? He looked like he was really hoping Kyon would play with him.

Oh wow. Hilarious episode, yet again. The FMP references were brilliant, just brilliant. I'm still continually impressed with KyoAn's vibrant and fluent animation and the fantastic cinematography... but the CG cricket didn't mix well. It's probably been the first thing in this series that hasn't been absolutely stunning to look at.

There's something to Yuki, I suspect... a certain depth or enigmaticness that we've only been hinted to. And my guess is that it's going to be explored furthur down the track. Although, considering the ensemble cast, there's probably a big chance the same goes for all characters. It's probably the thing that continues to impress me the most about this series: it's a comedy and humour is far and away what Haruhi does best, yet there's a certain complexity about the story which is extremely intriguing... even if the show itself doesn't take it completely seriously.

I don't think they really cared about the bug.The whole idea was funny and ridiculous.The fact that it was obviously a CG made the scene even better for me.


The kyon's monologue at the end of the ep was weird.I didn't really understand what he was saying.

But YUKI ROCKS and she was pretty at the end.

Yea Yuki is stealing hearts but the Haruhist in me keeps telling myself: "Haruhi is the best, no one else is cuter." and "Mikuru is selected by Haruhi so, shes the 2nd cutest.". I can't seem to bring myself to like Yuki more than Haruhi or Mikuru.

Couldn't agree more. Haruhi is still my fav character with Mikuru a close second.

He he, he does love board game but sucks badly at it. And haven't you notice that he's been doing nothing but playing board games with Kyon inside the club room?

Here be our synch log for this ep:
Spoiler for Wall of Text:


Further highlights of this ep for me that haven't been listed so far:
Haruhi sleeping in exams:

I KNOW THIS FEELING! There was a girl who'd finish 30 minutes early on 90 minute Further Maths practise papers who got 99% or thereabouts each time.


Kyon: "Wait! Tell me what you're going to do"
Yuki: "nothing" *points*
Kyon: Nandatto????

That got a good laugh out of me. Or to be precise, a good "wifhqoifjo"


'With eyes like liquid helium'

That simile hit me hard for some reason XD


Hitchhiker's Guide to Centra/South Africa

It just reminded me of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Not sure if that was intentional or not.


But yes... knowing the nature of Yuki's powers (Vol 1 Ch 5)... well adapting a small exerpt from the Art of War (which I've never read btw), a personal motto of mine is:

"Best is to prevent your enemy from coming up with a strategy, next is to prevent their forces gathering, then it's to go meet their army on the battlefield. Therefore, information warfare > logistics/strategic warfare > tactical warfare."

Yuki brings "Information Warfare" to Two whole new dimensions (because one just doesn't sound grand enough) XD

Another excelent episode! I gave it a perfect just like the previous 6!

I loved Haruhi's sleeping face and that, really beatifull, image of Nagato at the end! Apart from that, I could not give credit to Itsuki's attacks "Fumoffu" and "Second Raid" but, with the Sub out, I can laught even more!

Haha, FMP references, I got them even though I don't watch FMP, since Koizumi just said it out loud for us.

First time actually hearing Yuki's chants, that sure was some fast chanting. I had thought she would just move her lips silently.

And what's with the scareb giving the cricket an HP boost? A physical manifestation of the computer society president's obsession with RPG games?

Haruhi should be disappointed with a counter of 29,819. In the novels, her site got 1 million.

The number Kyon said was "一十百千" = 1 * 10 * 100 * 1000 = 1,000,000. By the way, isn't putting a 一 wrong? Might be Kyon's dialect or something...

No, 1,000,000 would be "百万". 100 * 10,000. I have no idea what "一十百千" is.

一十百千 just means that there are alot, like "zillions" or "bajillions" in english. Or he could be counting the digits.

I haven't read this far into the novels yet so i don't know the whole sentence. Which volume/page is the at?

Nah i think 一十百千 should just be literally one, ten, hundred, thousand, which means kyon was just counting.

Anyway another fantastic episode that derserves a TEN!

Nearly laughed to death at memories of mikuru's flyer distribution nightmare and how haruchi owned the computer society president.

Thumbs up for mikuru lower body exercises! Maybe she should teach me aerobics some time.

And yuki scene at was fabulous! Avatar and Signature worthy!

This episode was PERFECT! It had everything I was looking for, and with the addition of a greatly fleshed-out fighting scene (which was STILL hilarious), I'm left suddenly craving for the next episode.

Not gonna be stingy; a 10 for me!

Ah wow, this episode was fun. A solid 9 from me, slightly only missing the 10 mark set up by episodes 0 and 1. Much much better than last week's. Kyon's remarks were just so deliciously entertaining. I swear, he's the most amusing male character since Morita from Honey and Clover (although Tamaki from Ouran High School Host Club is up there too). I'm starting to love all the scenes where Yuki is in them, and in this ep she was just awesome and steals the spotlight. Of course......I would never go so far as to say she's greater than Haruhi.....*cough*
...........
*runs away from Haruhi's vengeful smiting*

Just can't wait till they show when Yuki decides to lose the glasses

Oooo... you have drawn reference to Morita Shinobu, the God of capitalism and WIN. In terms of spontaniety and ability, Haruhi would most closely resemble Morita, but Haruhi is dominatrix, and Morita gets owned by Ayu consistently. Morita has displays moments of "serious" maturity, Haruhi has not... yet.

I posit that if Morita met Haruhi, Haruhi would make an exception to her Alien-Esper-Future-People rule, because with Shinobu around, she'll forget the meaning of "bored."

Couldn't agree with you more Vexx! But the reason I didn't give it a 9 was... NO MIKURU-CHAN FANSERVICE!!1!one!!eleven!!! Sleeping Haruhi almost made up for it but I'm having Mikuru withdrawls right now! *watches episode 5 for kawaii Mikuru fix* I'm thinking that the shot with the computer monitor was actually inside the monitor. Note how the window buttons are on the left side rather than the right. Even cooler effect IMO. It's like you're in the cave cricket's perspective looking at the insanity of the SOS clubroom.
