(He didn't start off that way, incidentally; on my first watch I simply hated him on gut reaction, but as I rewatched and rewatched the show, I realized just how pivotal his role was. Everyone needs an obstacle, and for Haruhi, Kyon is it.)
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is the sheer power of Alternate Character Interpretation.

Eh, I've heard so many different interpretations of the show that that doesn't really phase me much anymore, lol.

I didn't give it a 10, I don't think there's an anime out there that can achieve a 10 for me. But it is very deserving of a 9, even if just out of sheer quality. I did like the fact that the anime was short and sweet, but it left me wanting more.

On a personal note, I love these characters. Even if it's hard to follow at first, I love the story. And Hare Hare is legendary. This is still easily one of the best anime I've ever seen.

Here's to hoping season 2 is coming soon.

I probably shouldn't judge it until the second season but I liked it very much and gave it an 8. Definitely one of the best animes I've watched in a while.

Agreed, I also gave it a 7... it wasn't bad or anything, but I just don't really understand all of the hype over it. I mean the original light novels could be super awesome for all I know, but a lot of people just watched the anime and worship Haruhi based on that... that I don't really get since I watched the anime and was entertained but never really 'WOW'ed or anything.

I give Haruhi a 9.

I don't know what it was, but I got so addicted. I fell in love with the silly stereotypical characters. I started to love Haruhi's Mary Sue whining. But what stood out most was when Kyon and Haruhi kiss. People dislike the climax of Haruhi, and I could not disagree more.

Cool show.

9.8 / 10

This was the best anime I had seen since . . . well since forever!!
I hold back the 10.0 rating, just in case that ever do have a season 2.

There are rare sequals that are superior to the originals.

Normally however this is done by having the first series/film/novel basically introduce the characters and give them something to do. The second series/film/novel tell the real meat of the story that the characters were invented for in the first place. This the first series/film/novel is basically a setup for the second to start with.

However there are other exceptions, even in anime: The second series of Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers is generally considered the best out of the entire series.
Gremilns 2 was probably better than the original movie, but then it also changed genre more to comedy than the original movie.
Some consider the Empire Strikes Back as the best of the Star Wars films.
Somw people dislike it because it changed the style and setting for all future productions, but Star Trek II is generally considered to be a whole lot more interesting than Star Trek the Motion Picture, and Star Trek IV is generally considered the one Star Trek film that pretty much anyone can watch because is has the most humor in it (also possibly the least actual sci-fi elements...since its based mostly in 1986 San Francisco...and themed on saving the whales).

So if what I read for the fourth Haruhi light novel is made like I think it will be made...the Disappearance of Haruhi will be as good, if not better, than the original series.

Vol. 4 is generally considered the best book, yeah... but that's because most of the fandom are insane Yuki fanboys. Not that it isn't fantastic for Kyon development and general awesome, of course.

Though, I personally like Vol. 7 the best...

Basically, Haruhi's a winner.

As I may already said elsewhere, Haruhi is my current benchmark - for a 10, that is.
Everything is (about) perfect.

As a gaijin in Japan, if any work (Esp. anime) wants to base their story on a real place in Japan, they must really put in ALL the effort. CLANNAD did so well, and so did Haruhi (in fact, why CLANNAD only receives 9 for now from me is due to too little of the Fujibayashis.)

So here goes.

Animation : 10 (Kyoani for the WIN!)

Voice Actors: 9.5 (Kyon, get your sis out of the way... she reminds me of Sia from Shuffle!)

Script : 10 (For faithfulness to original - the author's gonna be proud of you guys at Kyoani!)

Other factors: 10

Total: 10+9.5+10+10=39.5
Avg: 9.87
