The question really is, what DID people like about it?

They liked the characters, shenanigans and fanservice. Now anime has excelled at those things, so by today's standards it could be considered weak.

It's really the same with every form of entertainment. The old stuff gets outpaced by the new stuff it inspired, but people still like the old stuff because it did it earlier when it was less common.
>>
>>153499176
>They liked the characters, shenanigans and fanservice
Couldn't care less about the fanservice (which is barely there anyway). The good writing, characters and staging is timeless.
>>
>>153497719
It's entertaining as fuck. One of the best group dynamics out of any anime ever, and it also has one of the greatest anime films ever made to its name

Literally the only reason why the Disappearance is a masterpiece is because of the series.
>>
>>153502156
The series isn't that different from Disappearance except it doesn't spell out stuff with 7 minutes monologues for the viewer. Disappearance is still better but the series did it first.

Why do so many people like to act like the movie is so much better than the series, it isn't that much different you know? I mean, it's a nice film, but I really don't understand how someone who hate the series would like It.

Haruhi was literally the main conviction of Kyon's dilemma in the film though.
Not to mention we got long haired Haruhi AND ponytail Haruhi in one film.
What the fuck more do you want?
>>
The openings were dope, too.
>>
>>153502211
>>153502156
Both of these. The movie elevates it far and above anything it could have been without it. However, without the series the movie wouldn't be nearly as impactful as it is.
>>
>>153503633
>without the series the movie wouldn't be nearly as impactful as it is
It also wouldn't make any fucking sense considering it's not a standalone film.
>>
>>153503592
I know, It's just that we barely see her in the film. I know she disappearing is literally the point, but I can't agree that the firm enhances everything that makes the series great when Haruhi herself has so little screen time.

>Not to mention we got long haired Haruhi AND ponytail Haruhi in one film.
Which was The best part of the movie along with Kyon realization at the end

It's the first generic shit LN staring a crazy bitch a lot of people saw when they were younger.

>>153503706
not having Haruhi is essential to put in perspective what Haruhi is to both Kyon and the series
I wouldn't like her as much if she hadn't disappeared during that movie

>hasn't held up well
I only saw it for the first time in 2012 and think it's GOTA. Wouldn't say it held up badly at all, BDs did a LOT to help.

I liked Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody I think that epsiode is about as good as the movie. I liked the direction in it. In fact I liked the direction in a lot of the season 2 episodes, E8 gets a lot of hate but the episodes are really well done, and the movie arc is kinda subpar but that's only because the source material is as well.
>>
>>153503811

I think it might look better in DVD. The upscale was lacking because it was made in 480p.
Not counting S2 obviously.

What do people dislike about the movie arc other than the boring beginning? The stuff at the end is pretty crazy.
>>
>>153503905
Yeah but her character, and the rest of the cast had been so perverted to a point where I could hardly consider it a spin-off.
>>
>>153503936
I don't know anon, even the S1 stuff looks very good. Sure it's not S2 good but it still looks as nice as your average anime now a decade later.

I agree with that. And also with the other thing you said, it's just that we can't have both things I guess. I wish she had more screen time in the film, but I also think that she being absent is what makes it great.

If you haven't done you should read the books anon. They're all officially released now as well some of them aren't pictured. Snowy mountain syndrome is a great read but to be honest they're all as good as the show is.

The sci-fi elements and Kyon's character.
I have a weak spot for time travel so when it's done right it makes me like the material so much. The Haruhi series does it really well and they use Yuki instead of Mikuru for these sci-fi related things so it's much better.

I think the overall writing quality greatly improves as time goes on, but the stories definitely peak in the beginning.
The story definitely jumps the shark around novel eight or seven or so. Probably unpopular.
The snowy mountain chapter is fucking phenomenal though, aside from the silly resolution. That had me hooked like nothing else I've ever read, I was actually in fucking tears from just how well it was written. It was so surreal and terrifying at the same time. Something like that is my absolute nightmare, and it perfectly captured it

I think Dissociation is the best written and has the best story although it's only an introduction so I can't really call it the best for that. Surprise is great too although slow at beginning, it has a great payoff (which would be even greater with Kyoani magic). Both these hold up fairly well to Disappearance in my opinion.

>>153520681
You'd love Snowy Mountain Syndrome if you haven't read it yet, then. Except for the lackluster ending as the previous anon called, of course, it's a closed space story in terms of mood. AFAIK only Umineko does it better and it's because they stay in the closed space for dozens of hours of reading.

Was it the scene where Koizumi was talking about how Kyon only made it worse by telling her they should keep going?

i like haruhi, my wife and true love
>>
>>153523609
No, I remember the scene you're talking about because it made me chuckle. It shows trees blooming despite it not being the season and cuts to slightly exasperated yet still smiling Koizumi.

>>153522489 is when he tells Kyon he has to do something to keep Haruhi's sense of reality. He also tells him Mikuru might be moebait for him.

A while back, I did a whole writeup comparing Haruhi to another anime that I personally liked. With the recent death of archive moe, I'll try to repost the points I put in it.

To me, the anime that Haruhi reminds me the most of, is NieA_7. I'm a huge aBefag, and my favourite anime by the guy is Haibane Renmei, but NieA is a close second (Lain and Texhnolyze are so-so, though I know those two are more popular)

One thing abut NieA_7, was the theme of the surreal become the real, the extraordinary becoming the ordinary. in NieA_7, an alien landing takes place. However, and for some bizarre reason, the alien population did not look too different from humans (save for elf ears and an antennae) and the majority of them integrated well into Earth (mainly, Japan's) society. The idea was nice, but too problematic, and relied too much on suspension of disbelief (made more difficult by how solemn/somber) said anime was.

The other was the larger than life genki girl who was the titular character - both NieA and Haruhi were the central focuses of the show, but not the narrator/protagonist - that was played by a more down to earth character (in NieA's case, Mayuko, in Haruhi's case, Kyon) Both characters cause havoc in their respective partners life but, when both of them disappear at some point (spoiler, I guess), both Mayuko and Kyon come to realize the value of having someone larger then life around.

A third theme, is the meaning of Life. Haruhi herself pondered the point of her existence, and the futility of it, in contrast the overwhelming nature of Infinity. In contrast, Mayuko was a cram student who didn't know what she wanted to do in life, and had become a social recluse.

cont. from >>153525068
All this being said,, I find that Haruhi did it better than NieA, and it became one of my personal favourites animes (about equal to Haibane Renmei in favour) because, Haruhi took the juxtaposition of the extraordinary and the ordinary, and made it something interetsing.

In NieA's case, it was made open, but, it was too problematic. And the thing about many animes where you have 'a secret, hidden world' lurking underneath the real is that, it lacks believeability and depth (shakugan no shana comes to mind). In contrast, Haruhi takes this juxtaposition to another level by having a character who is actively interested in the supernatural but, not only can she not interact with it, if she does do so, it may end up destroying the world. This irony is further enhanced by the fact that actually, Haruhi has almost godly power to create anything but, and because she is not aware of this, she remains unaware of the existence of the supernatural despite its efforts.

Thus, Haruhi becomes a twin dichotomy - between Haruhi, who wants to chase after the supernatural, and make her more Life more interesting and meaningful (on top of putting her name on anything by doing various projects), and Kyon and the rest of the brigade, who live in the world Haruhi has created, and have to both tackle the danger she creates, and the dangers that are posed to her. NieA_7 doesn't do this, and to be honest, I cannot think of many stories that do anything quite close to Haruhi, the exception may be the Marvel Universe, with characters like Franklin Richards and The Sentry. Moreso the latter. But in those stories, the 'supernatural' is an accepted phenomena, the same does not apply to Haruhi.

Its why, to be honest, and even though its often identified as one, I never saw Haruhi Suzumiya as a moe/moeblob show. To me, Haruhi felt like the kind of anime someone like aBe Yoshito should have guest arted for. (moreso than Oreimo)

Sasaki probably feels like that outsider who's interested in the brigade but can't really get herself to try and interact with them. Like Tsuruya except slightly sad.

That's my interpretation at least. She might feel better now she's gotten time to talk with Kyon and sort this stuff out, though.

It used to house potential, before the author wrote himself into a corner and went on a 4 year hiatus, then released 2 books and hasn't released anything in another 5.

Too many places to go, does he escalate the series from high school hijinks to shit hitting the fan? War? Time stuff that causes Mikuru or who ever to do things. We've seen them 'make a thing happen the way they recorded it', meaning that history is not static, so they need to make sure 'they keep existing' so that they can keep observing, or something. Answer the question to if kyon is a slider and he's not changing anything, just moving to a timeline where those events happen. More of the internal faction conflicts and external 'gods'. There's so much to work with, the question was when to set things in motion and how serious the series could get whilst answering the mysteries.

It's like 11 books of prologue and school romcom, then bam the actual story starts? Or does it stay the same and fizzle (as it did).

They just say it hasn't aged well because they think the art looks too similar to the KEYshit KyoAni was doing at the time.
Which doesn't make a lot of sense considering the animation is still 10x better than a lot of the shit currently airing this season.
>>
>>153542246
I think it's the "seinfeld isn't funny" effect where so many things copied a lot of what made Haruhi good to the point where it seems old despite it doing all of these things however long ago.

This is true though. While the animation and backgrounds are still high tier, the designs can go from good to almost untolerable from an episode to another when these bug eyes show themselves again

good thing S2 and Disappearance got most of the good designs

Except for the fact the chuunibyou is fucking awful and boring shit with lame ass characters, the supernatural shit is fake and mostly relies on dumb character drama to somehow make the main love interests important.

It's fine here but some episodes had really big bug eyes for Haruhi.
Overall it's not bad, but it's a good thing Kyoani stopped doing the keyshit thing and made designs less static in S2/movie.

The last novel established Haruhi has a fail-safe with Yasumi, Yuki's finally doing okay, Kyon's sister's friend might be up to something, the Sasaki group is of splintered, and things are kind of moving toward the endgame, with that college flash-forward. Tanigawa could either have a random adventure (like Sigh), or have another plot-advancing book, either would be fine and shouldn't be particularly difficult to write.

I get the feeling Tanigawa wanted to distance himself from the series, due to the pressure of creating something that became so popular. He probably felt overwhelmed and just said screw it. At least, that's the feeling I get from the afterword in Surprise.
