Well, I’d wanted to blog this episode earlier, but no thanks to TMNuts and Mikuru-chan moé overloads, it got delayed :P.
So well, let’s see… this episode, we skip to a month later, after the founding of the SOS-dan, where we get to see Mikuru-chan, serving tea in a nurse outfit to the club members, when Haruhi-sama barges in and announces that they’re going to join a baseball tournament that is going to be held 2 days later. Haruhi’s first class smile(as quoted from Kyon) and her ear-biting of Mikuru-chan contributed to my first moé overload of the episode.
And so, the merry men and women of the SOS-dan proceed to procure the baseball field from the baseball club to practice, with a little help from Mikuru-chan.Seriously, when someone that cute, looks at you at that way, asking you to do something, I’d gladly do anything for her. The practice session contributed to my second moé overload of the episode.
And so… the baseball match comes. Predicatably, the SOS-dan team is made up of totally random people, including Kyon’s little sister, which I must add, should appear more later on.I really love Haruhi’s optimism on winning the baseball match, even when all of them have absolutely no experience in playing the game :P.
Anyways, the baseball match proceeds with the SOS-dan losing, predictably, and adding in a few more moé overload moments to the count. Mikuru-chan seiyuu is good, freakingly good, at making all those sounds. A sheer moan from her already makes me melt. I think I might turn into a criminal if there was a real-life Mikuru-chan….
As it turns out, if they don’t win this baseball match, it seems the world would be destroyed, so with a little help from Yuki, the SOS-dan start to gain points and overtake their opponents. Of course, they won at the end, lest the world gets destroyed, but seriously, like Kyon says, the world it getting really cheaper recently. It’s too bad the baseball match wasn’t at the level of great ones like Samurai Champloo’s or Dr. Slump’s one, but oh well, at least those didn’t have Mikuru-chan or Haruhi-sama :P.
Hints of jealously have already started to appear from Haruhi-sama, and it has become quite obvious that she’s in love with a certain someone. Ah…. how I really love this sides of tsunderekko’s.
Seriously, i think I have to stop watching this, if I want to continue on anime…. Haruhi really makes all the other animes quite bland. In fact, I’ve watched each episode now, no less than 3 times each, and I can’t get bored of it. Ah… the Mikuru Moé Overloads….. ahh…. Haruhi’s first-class smiles… it really makes me depressed about it when I think that they are all not in this world…
