Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing: The day, someday, it ends

Throughout the summer, AT-X has been re-airing the Haruhi Suzumiya anime series. Each week, they would show two episodes at a time. Back in early June, I thought it would be a fun idea to re-watch the series two episodes at a time with them. I asked Yumeka and Goggen if they would join me in this re-watching, and they kindly agreed to not only watch the episodes, but to send me their views upon re-watching the episodes too. Finally, we’ve come to the final week. Today features the last TV episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. As always, each of us writes our thoughts seperately without seeing what the other two people wrote. (Yumeka-Haruhi, Goggen-Mio, ultimatemegax-Koizumi) Continue reading

Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing: Cultural Festival!

After finishing the 2009 episodes in our re-viewing, Yumeka, Goggen, and I have reached the final stretch! The cable station AT-X aired the 25th and 26th episodes of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya today, and just like the past 12 weeks, we watched the episodes as well. Without further adu, here are our thoughts on the two episodes focusing on the events of the cultural festival! (Both episodes were viewed and all thoughts were written without knowledge of what anyone else wrote. Any coincidences are just that.

Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing: Sigh, it’s over

We’re in week 12 of 14 for our Haruhi Suzumiya TV anime re-viewing! Since AT-X is re-broadcasting the TV anime, Yumeka, Goggen, and I are following along and re-watching the show two episodes at a time to coincide with their showings. This week, we conclude not only the second novel, but the new episodes that were added in the 2009 showings. As always, each of us watch the episodes separately and write our own thoughts with no knowledge of what the others wrote. (Yumeka-Haruhi, Goggen-Mio, ultimatemegax-Koizumi) Continue reading

Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing, Sigh, again?

Welcome back to week 11 of our Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing! For the first time since July 19th, we finally get a week without a single Endless Eight episode! The bad news: we’re in Sigh territory. Since AT-X is airing the series throughout the summer, Yumeka, Goggen, and I thought it’d be fun to re-watch the series alongside the Japanese fans. This week, the station aired Sigh II and Sigh III, so that’s what we’ll be covering this week. As always, we watch the episodes and write our impressions separately. Any overlap in thought is pure coincidence unless we’ve developed mind-sharing powers in the past week. (Yumeka – Haruhi, Goggen – Mio, ultimatemegax – Koizumi) Continue reading

Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing: End, Sigh…

Beginning on June 21 of this year, AT-X has been re-airing the Haruhi Suzumiya TV anime weekly in two-episode chunks. Along with their schedule, Yumeka, Goggen, and myself have been re-veiwing the series and offering our thoughts on the week’s episodes. This week, we finish the longest (to-date) anime arc. As usual, any thoughts that are shared between us are coincidence. We each write our own thoughts separately. (Yumeka-Haruhi, Goggen-Mio, ultimatemegax-Koizumi) Continue reading

Haruhi Suzumiya re-viewing: Seems to

This summer, AT-X, a cable station in Japan that broadcasts primarily anime programming, has been re-airing the Haruhi Suzumiya TV series. Along with them, Yumeka, Goggen, and I have been re-watching the series 2 episodes a week with them. This week, we continue the Endless Eight arc. (Yumeka: Haruhi, Goggen: Mio, ultimatemegax:Koizumi) Any parallel thoughts are coincidence; we each watch and write our thoughts separately. Continue reading

Haruhi Suzumiya Re-viewing: Just Never

To play along with AT-X, a cable station in Japan that is currently re-airing the Haruhi Suzumiya anime, Yumeka, Goggen, and I are watching the same episodes aired that week and blogging our thoughts on a re-watch of the episode. This week, we break through the middle part of the dreaded Endless Eight arc. As always, each of us watch/write our thoughts on the episodes separately, so any matching thoughts are coincidental. (Yumeka-Haruhi/-chan, Goggen-Mio, ultimatemegax-Koizumi) Continue reading
