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
