I’ve been in possession of the anime adaptation of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya for approximately five billion years, and it’s finally time that I actually watch the damn thing. I’ve had a lot of false starts with this show, but I’ve come to realise that this problem stems almost entirely from trying to start it from Episode 0, the in-universe fan movie. With no context to give it any meaning, it’s just so boring I’ve never been able to finish the episode, let alone move on.
So here’s to starting with the “second” episode and getting some actual story! Thoughts to come once I’m done with it.
