Win, I tell you…. pure unadultered win…. that’s what Suzumiya Haruhi is made of…
This is easily one of the best series this season, if they continue on with the same quality this episode if made off.
Anyways, this can be said as the “true” first episode of the series, as we are introduced to the wonder that is Suzumiya Haruhi-sama through the eyes of Kyon, the male lead of the show. Being a *tsunderekko*, she acts initially cold to him… but slowly opens up to the cynical Kyon, who actually inspires her to make a new club, SOS-dan or Sekai wo Ooini moriagerutame no Suzumiya Haruhi no dan, to overload the world with fun, since she finds everything boring. Win, in my opinion, pure win. Where do I sign up, Haruhi-sama?
Other highlights include the way she just grabs poor Mikuru-chan to join the club after noticing that she daydreams daily and also for the fact that she has a moé characteristic to her, being a lolita face with big boobs and all. Haruhi-sama also pointed out the universal law of anime that every interesting story, there’s a loli moé character in it. Oh and did anyone spot the SHUFFLE! cameo?
In short…. Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu is a must watch for this season… screw the shows where dog gods with a perverted master kill vampires who shoot cloth-disintegrating beams and where kisses are required to activate godly flying machines…. Suzumiya Haruhi wins all of them at least 10^n (where n = ∞) times.
Haruhiism for the win!!!
