Storyline

On his first day of high school, Kyon meets an eccentric girl named Haruhi Suzumiya, who announces to the class that she is interested only in meeting aliens, time travelers, and espers. Discontent with the selection of afterschool clubs presented before her, she starts a new club called the SOS Brigade and enlists Kyon, a quiet bookworm named Yuki Nagato, a shy but beautiful junior named Mikuru Asahina, and a grinning and loyal transfer named Itsuki Koizumi. Each of them except Kyon is secretly part of one of the groups Haruhi desired to meet, and they all must keep close watch on her. If she ever grows dissatisfied with reality, she may unintentionally destroy the world. Written by Dsneybuf

Trivia

Originally, the episodes were intentionally aired/shown out of sequence. What was shown as Episode 01 is actually Episode 11. In the 'coming soon' blurb at the end of each episode, Haruhi gave the chronologically correct number of the next episode, and Kyon 'corrected' her by giving the 'wrong' episode number - the one that corresponds to the order it is being shown in. When new episodes were produced in 2009, the whole series aired again, this time in chronological order. See more »

Quotes

Kyon: Okay. Asking somebody how long they believed in Santa Claus is so stupid, you can't even consider it a topic suitable for idle conversation. And if you still want to know how long I believed in some old fat guy who wears a funky red suit, I can tell you this: I never believed in him.

Great series - a lot like the novels
12 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good animation, nice character design, and a light-hearted story make Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu enjoyable to watch.

After my first viewing, I thought that this anime was pretty good, but but was much better on for a second watch.

This is because it is done out of chronological order, and once you re watch it in correct order you notice connections you didn't see before. (OR it may be that you see a second meaning to some events you didn't notice before) You may want to read the original novels (not manga) by Tanigawa Nagaru before/after seeing this. The anime is very good at visualizing every detail in the stories it shows.

However, there are some short stories from the book that are not animated, but are referenced to.(bamboo w/ wishes attached shown in episode 14) Overall, this anime is actually very good once after brief analyzation of the plot (reading the book improves upon it as well). It is a nice break from the shounen-jump anime that seem to be taking over.
