Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan

Ignoring the fact that the lack of views, lack of “memes”, quitting the horrible black hole of the internet and all around laziness has discouraged me from posting things like meme Monday and such, I am not completely dead. Continuing the deity muse from which my blog is spawned from: I would like more believers.

End of excuse / explanation.


Kadokawa has subbed and released the “anime” known as Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi-chan to youtube. If you’re learning about it from here then let me just say it’s probably not what you’re expecting. Leaving expectations aside and taking it for what it is, the video is great.

The English subtitles coming from Japanese origin and mistakes may occur but fear not the meanings and ideas are properly conveyed. Even with 100% accurate subtitles I’m sure there will be a number of people who will describe the video with three letters. So before you tag the video as wtf let me explain some Japanese culture.

In Japan if your first dream of the New Year contains Mount Fuji, a hawk and an eggplant then the year will be filled with luck. If you know what Kyon has been through then it makes sense that his hastuyume did not properly contain all three key items for luck. He will probably have another stressful year on the account of Haruhi. Hopefully that ends up being something like another season for us.


Also from Kadokawa is Nyoron Churuya-san which I did not like as much as Haruhi-chan. I am a big fan of the actual 4-koma of Churyua-san (by Utsura Uraraka) but sadly I don’t think it works out as well animated.
