Just did a marathon run of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu (the Japanese title of the anime) from about 5pm till almost 12am midnight with some breaks in between. Could have finished it earlier but whatever, it was totally worth it to watch it all at once! After watching this I really understand why there are many Haruhist (or whatever you want to call them) that can't wait for the second season to start. The story itself is quite simple and easy to understand and is really amusing how the story unfolds if you watch it chronologically like I did. (the anime itself was aired in a nonlinear order) Don't think I have much to say about this anime but reading the manga first before watching the anime did give me a great understanding about what the story is all about.

Okay then, so what do I have to say about Suzumiya Haruhi? Well nothing actually, really haven't thought much about what to say about everything. Just have to watch it and read the manga beforehand if you really want to appreciate the story. To be honest it just feels like what an ordinary boy-meets-girl love story or something similar anime that is out there, only that this one had an added twist as it involves aliens, espers and time travelers. (and whatnot) Don't really get how it become popular or how it even gained so many fans internationally, but whatever it is I'm sure most of us are demanding for a second season....
