The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Posted on: December 15, 2007

of aliens, time travelers and espers comes forth the school club dedicated to finding the existence of these beings, affectionately known as SOS dan! in english, the SOS brigade.

introducing Haruhi Suzumiya, an interesting high school girl who’s mind is warped out of this world. a melancholic – a mood disorder of non-specific depression. thus, the title – The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

it’s 14 episodes is chocked full of weirdness but plods along nicely unfolding the root of this quirky anime’s true motive – that which is the the building of trust between schoolmates and the finality of a hopeful love blossoming from it. i say finality due to the last episode presenting everything on the table as what the audience has come to suspect when following the series to the end.

it’s love and hate. some might find it not engaging enough, too little action, too much brooding. some will totally fall in love with it, the characters, the ongoing normalcy (if i can call it that) once the credits starts rolling in the last episode.

i came in with high expectations that the series will deliver and it has. it’s good, albeit short ride.

since it’s airing in april 2006, it has become a cult television series with a huge fandom. Haruhiism as they call it. cosplayers all around have had their hands in reenacting the ending credits dance sequence on youtube. here’s one i come across a few minutes ago. pretty accurate.

last i read they might be planning a Live Action for the series and perhaps a season two…hurray!
