Is it just me or is Koizumi playing a part in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead?

Just watch the subbed episode. Looooooved this episode as we get to see another side of Haruhi. I was feeling kinda moody too when Haruhi's feeling moody but I'm glad she's back to her old self in the end. Seems like the only person that can influence Haruhi is Kyon. She seems to recover extremely fast when Kyon is with her. And yeah, I gotta agree the songs were pretty decent. I just can't stop listening to them now!

Good episode, I gave it a 9.

Prob saying the same things others have said.

More KyonxHaruhi development, as expected. But I really liked how they portrayed the different sides of Haruhi. She was so moody this episode. I think she wants to be seen with Kyon more and wants other's to see them as a couple now, even if she won't say it. That's why she had Kyon come up with her when she was talking to the other girls. And then at the end she turned around so quick when with Kyon. Good episode over all.

Oh, and I really liked the music, who didn't?

I don't think being praised was the only cause of it. But it seems it helped. I think she saw that she doesn't have to wild things to have fun. She saw that people will like her if she just helps them out. It made her think about what she has been doing all this time, and what she has been doing with her life. She got thinking about those sort of things and made herself depressed I guess. But, Kyon cheered her up quickly it seems by just being near her.

Yeah I liked the first song (VERY surprising) but not the second one that's for sure. The first one was done in a different voice than Haruhi's normal one kind of like Mylene's were in Macross 7, its a safe-guard against having a squeaky main character like Mylene or nasal character like Haruhi do a song that would make your ears bleed, which is what the second song did for me since it was in Haruhi's regular voice (I don't think she tried as hard on the second one). I think I mostly like the first song because to me it sounds like a vocal version of Invisible A.S (Assassin) the Alegrias theme from SRW Alpha 3 which is my favorite original song in the game tied with Another Time Diver and Gun of Dis, but it has its own merits, maybe someday it will make it onto one of my custom discs.

Also, because Haruhi avoided "normal" things all the time by fruitlessly searching for extraordinary things, she probably feels like she missed out on a lot now.

(problem is the "normal" things that she is 'missing out' aren't all that normal... depending on what your definiton of normal is. If it's the 'normal' things that Kyon does that would be 'abnormal' to teen stereotypical behaviours.)

Well, I noticed a couple things.

Everything gets more ridiculous, and I love it.

Haruhi plays a Rickenbacker guitar, Its a 300 series. Very expensive.

Yuki obviously plays a white Gibson, I think its a SG, but the pick board was the same color.

The bassist had a Fender, I think. Yawn.


But I liked how the music was animated very accurately! I checked the frets and bar chords Haruhi played, and the beginning solo and most chord were good!

So far, this is my favorite. 10.

wow what a an incrediable episode i mean damn. Haruhi in a bunny suit rocking it out with a guitar like she owned the place of course i gave it a 10 anyone who does not give this episode a 10 you have no heart. The ending scene with Kyon and her was a nice touch to see them in a nice serious quiet moment. Haruhi-ism lives on another day just to a rockin beat now

Yeah, Kyon gets caught up in some weird stuff
I mean like all the clubs she dropped, for one. She may be thinking now that they may have been fun if she'd given them a proper chance.

Oh, and I really liked the music, who didn't?
I got the impression that Haruhi didn't want to talk to the band for some reason (fear? shyness?), and Kyon's reassuring presence was enough for her to face her fears and talk to the band (where she found out that she had nothing to worry about!).

The first song felt weird. I just couldn't match the voice with Haruhi the character.

I've played in Concert/Symphonic bands for 7 years, but I've never heard that song before. I don't think it's something from anime/game music literature although I could be wrong (unlikely). It's probably an authentic symphonic band song; which I think could likely be written by a local Japanese composer.. but the sample is too short for me to judge more accurately.

So, unless you're in the symphonic music scene, I think your sense of familiarity is deja vu

It was Zelda-ish music.

Another excellent episode from KyoAni!

Memorable moments of the anime goes to :
- Yuki : Fortune telling alien and rockin' guitar performance!
- Haruhi : From the sweat-plastered strands of hair clinging her face to the bunny girl costume to her belting out an audience-rousing vocal performance, she's just great!
- Itsuki : Woah, his class is doing the play "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead", which presents a worm's-eyeview of the classical tragedy, Shakespeare's Hamlet!
- Mai : Girl playing bass = too sexy
- Kyon : for being there for Haruhi during the last scene

[EDIT]

Oh, and honorable mention goes to :
- Nekkoman : They are everywhere, I tell you! Everywhere!
