Haruhi is probably in my top 10 favorite cartoons. Definitely worth watching
(I grew up in America, I don't say anime, sorry)
To enjoy this mountain of garbage you must be a crazy guy
Uh, not really though.
That whole entire movie arc was technically supposed to be in S1.
That's why people really hate Haruhi, because we saw her pre-character development at the end of the 2nd season.
S2 is actually the whole 28 episodes aired chronologically, so movie arc happens at the right time (not too long before Disappearance actually)
People who read the LNs generally think they're better than the anime. That's why people want S3 so much.
Too bad he literally got NTR'd in both universes.
Tanigawa is only a good writer when he does the good, plot-heavy novels. The rest is just about terrible.
Sigh is a horrible, 200-page-long filler absurdity that won't make you laugh any second of it. The only good thing about it is Mikuru telling Kyon that not everyone in the SOS is his ally. And that's it.
Boredom's only noticeable for introducing the Tanabata time-travel shenanigans. The rest is awfully boring.
Rampage's Snowy Mountain Syndrome is fun. Guess why? It's the only serious one that's longer than 40 pages. The only decent thing in that book.
Wavering is shit.
I still have to read the rest of the novels, but they only decent ones from those 6 are Melancholy, Disappearance. He writes mostly shitty short stories and terrible "mystery" /whodunit. It's bad.
It's dead. Just accept it already.
So Asahina tells Kyon something along the lines of "You may not appreciate them now, but in time you'll come to reflect on these days nostalgically"
Was that supposed to be a comment on how the show makes you feel? I didn't really like it at the time but now I look back on it fondly.
Is Haruhi actually an iyashikei in disguise?
Please kill yourself.
Pic related is one of the greatest scenes of all time that will never get animated.
The problem is that most of it is pointless. Mikuru Episode 00 just doesn't work in written form. Neither does Live A Live. Day of Sagittarius doesn't either. He simply can't write these stories, and it really shows when his plot stories are SO much better. It's just not his style.
I'm not saying SOL should be about plot, I'm saying he sucks at writing SOL.
Idolfags don't give a shit about Aya anymore. She voiced Haruhi recently in Yuki-chan. The problem is that no one wants to do anything with the series. Tanigawa doesn't want to write. KyoAni can't make anything Haruhi by themselves because it's up to Kadokawa. Kadokawa doesn't want to do anything with it because they have no LN material to promote.
Not OP, but I've never watched Haruhi and what surprises me is not that the show has such an high reputation on /a/, but how anons strongly defend it, which they don't do with a lot of other masterpieces
Guess I'll have to watch it someday
They're better in animated form but the point is still there. Day of Sagittarius shows Nagato's changes, Live Alive is Haruhi's turning point, Mikuru 00 is useless though. It's generally agreed that the anime improved the LNs it covered, but the following LNs are even better.
It's not a surprise to anyone who is smart.
>the plot is shit and so is the mc.
>he doesn't understand the meta
