Now that the dust has settled, be honest: did anyone ever unironically like this shit? I could never get into it mostly because of how annoying the main character is. And that's coming from someone who watched Naruto during Haruhi's original run so that's saying a lot.
But Kyon is one of the best MCs of all time.
If you're talking about Haruhi, she's not too bad. Only time I ever found myself disliking her was during the movie production arc. Other than Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody, though, I've completely erased season 2 from my mind. She's a pretty likable character in the episodes that are actually important.
You are such a faggot OP. How can you not unironically shit talk it so much? Stop thinking about dicks so often and think objectively. Haruhi was a masterpiece and even if it isn't your taste it is definitely a good anime.
I watched it for the first time last year expecting to hate it, but I loved it.
I watched every single Endless Eight episode, and the end was so unrewarding. That was the only bad part though.
Do newfags still watch Naruto? Or is it all SAO and SnK nowadays?
It was my first downloaded anime, but I don't think that's why I liked it. I think it was extremely original at its time and it wasn't afraid to throw some new-wave-but-scientific theories at the reader/watcher.
Kyon is an amazingly good character, we can relate to him but he isn't played out like every other anime stereotype.
So much enjoyment from these animus
Haruhi is actually the best character along with Kyon and develops subtly all the way through
This and the whole club room setting slice of life thing really took off after this anime. I especially enjoyed it because it took something cliche and did fun stuff with it and was always aware of the craziness through Kyon's objective hilarious narrative lens. So many anons don't realize why this is what made Haruhi great. They forget or did not watch it in 2006. So to the OP obviously yes, I enjoyed it unironically.
Haruhi is a huge asshole in the beginning of the anime, completely unreasonable and Kyon doesn't let that slide all of the time. However she has real character development where she becomes kinder and more rational thanks to her friends, which unfortunately isn't the case for lots of asshole female leads.
It did cause a surge in the english interest in light novels, so that's a bonus at least. There's some chance now that some of the stuff I want will be translated, instead of no chance.
She the title character I wouldn't call her the main one, she's like a prop to facilitate the others activities. Kyon, if anyone, is the MC.
Nice. Talking about that though my main enjoyment came from the fact that Kyon basically was fighting to get back what he acted like was an annoyance the whole time. Haruhi. Too many feels. My bickering OTP. Of course Yuki was cute af too. Such a great movie.
Both are great, faggots.
It's identical to the original scene in the LN, but even back then I thought Kyon was hugely overreacting. He had been through a lot of shit by that point so going full retard in a classroom in the middle of regular people was too much.
