Storyline

On December 18, Kyon finds that several traces of the SOS Brigade have mysteriously disappeared from his life. Mikuru and Yuki do not seem to recall meeting him, and Haruhi and Itsuki do not attend North High School. In addition, all the former Brigade members have become normal people. Eventually, Kyon receives a message from Yuki's alien counterpart asking him to gather keys for a program that could return him to his own reality. This starts Kyon on a journey that eventually leads him back to the night Haruhi first became interested in meeting aliens, time travelers, and espers. Written by Dsneybuf

Quotes

Kyon: That's the way it is. I prefer the original world after all. This one just doesn't suit me. I'm sorry, Nagato. I prefer the Nagato I've known up till now over you. Also, you look better without glasses.
Yuki Nagato: What are you talking about?
Kyon: Nagato. Return it to normal. Return yourself to normal. If you ask, I'll help you. You don't have to use that power to forcefully change things. It was fine the way it was.
Mikuru Asahina: Kyon-kun... It's pointless. This Nagato-san is completely powerless. She's just... a normal ...

19 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been reading "The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya" manga for quite some time now. I have seen too many remixes and fan tributes to count, so you simply have to call me a fan. I was sooo glad to finally be able to see the animated version for the first time in my life. I have to admit. It wasn't as good as I thought it would be. It was a million times better! This is truly one of the most wonderful and endearing films I have ever seen in my entire life. I have seen tons of movies, so that's really saying something. This also happens to be the longest animated movie I have ever seen in my entire life.

I wouldn't have had it be any shorter. If nothing else, this has shown us that animated films of any kind can be epic. Honestly, I thought this was on the same level as Miyazaki films. This is probably one of the Top 5 movies I've seen in the entire past year! I have seen so many awful movies it was such a relief to see a true masterpiece like this. The first 17 minutes are basically nothing but setting up what has already been occurring in the series. In fact, I believe Kyon himself apologizes to the audience for such a long prologue! I finally found out that the character's name is pronounced "Key-On" and not literally Kyon as I always thought.

That's what I get for not watching the stuff first! Now, I really do like to think that Haruhi is in fact God. Koizumi himself says she is kind of a God but it's just a theory of his. This movie seemed to disprove the idea that she was. I mean, Kyon himself is talking about the man upstairs and people praying to him and obviously doesn't mention Haruhi. Well, it's more or less stated that Haruhi created the universe (or possibly recreated it) so that's enough of a God for me! She's a being of immense power, okay? It's also great when the characters talk about Jesus, Muhammad and Buddha and Kyon doesn't know which to pray to! I am glad to be familiar with the source material because I understood all the references that were made to the show. You have to be a fan!

The gorgeous animation is what makes this so wonderful, among many other things. These characters just come across as so real to me. I love how the setting is so mundane when it's really a series about magical beings changing the Universe. I am a fan now and forever. The pacing in this film is absolutely perfect. I feel not like a second of this was wasted. It's a pity this isn't mainstream enough to appear in movie guides. It should be on the IMDb top 250! It's also the longest movie I've seen based on a TV show. It's a truly epic journey in every sense of the word.

The scenes in this film are amazingly intense. Kyon could just come off a stalker in this. I love how Haruhi slowly gets her old personality back. I love the idea of another character explicitly in love with her. Well, Kyon did make out with her to save the Universe. Come on, there must be something developing from that, right? It's so intense when Kyon goes nuts over hearing where Haruhi might be. I so feel for him as he argues with himself about wanting to live in a normal world. Of course he doesn't! He even admits anyone would be crazy to admit that!

It's the true devotion he shows towards Haruhi and the other characters that make this so wonderful. Asakura works great as a villain too, as the series was lacking a villain for the most part. Everything is just so beautiful with wonderful details. Kyon is perfect as a narrator. As the only non superpowered being, he is the most relatable. He even says that after all that Nagato has done (won't spoil the ending) he'll confront the alien entities to stop her from being punished. This is a wonderful and unique film in every sense of the word. ****
