Is this even worth watching?
It's not by Kyoani and i feel like Haruhi isn't even in it.
so is it worth a watch or not?
Honestly only the first episode was good if you just want to see a boring sol with Haruhi references. The rest of the show is exactly the same but you get to see more of Asakura which isn't so bad.
Just being able to hear the whole cast (including extra amounts of Asakura and Tsuruya) was worth enough for a seiyuufag like me.
>everyone here only watched it because of her
is the delusion part of it
Why watch the anime about Yuki and complain it isn't about Haruhi? Haruhi didn't steal the show in any way. Sure it isn't an anime for everyone, but in no ways is it objectively bad and if you can get over Haruhi it might just be one you're really glad to have given a chance.
I get what you mean now. You're right though. People here watch anime without knowing anything about the source material then proceed to bitch about it because it wasn't what they expected. I remember before this aired people genuinely thought that this was going to be a Haruhi season 3/disappearance film continuation just because of the title and boy everyone did get mad when this started airing.
We very well knew what the source material for this show was long before it came out. We've been saying the same shit about the manga as what we said about the anime for a very long time.
I knew what it was about before it began and I still watched it only for Haruhi.
Maybe for you but I'm talking about the majority of the people here. There were threads everywhere with people whining about it because they thought it was going to be Haruhi/disappearance quality. It even got shit when the designs came out.
That isn't what I said or meant about Haruhi stealing the show.
I never said it was a bad thing. It was something I was completely fine with.
But once she got introduced, she still played the primary driving force behind almost everything.
Yes, Yuki was a larger role character. Yes, she was cute as fuck with actual personality. But despite that the material is literally written to have her pairing with Kyon, it still felt like he worked better with Haruhi.
Hence, Haruhi stealing a show that OP "feels like Haruhi isn't even in."
I want more Churuya-san
The river scene with Kyon and Haruhi and the way she behaves afterwards, especially in the summer festival, makes it feel like everything going on is wrong.
That's how Haruhi steals the show imo. Makes you root for her. It feels like whenever she's with Kyon, things happen naturally, because they have so much chemistry, while every scene where theres progress with Nagato was because someone set it up for them, trying to help Nagato be with him.
