Today at Japanator we celebrate the patron saint of modern anime Haruhi Suzumiya, the titular character of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. She captured the hearts and minds of fans around the globe and because of her addictive personality even created a real fictional religion about spreading lots of excitement around the world.
Despite the hive mind of Google answering 99.9999% of things accurately for lazy internet users, they did screw up on Haruhi's birthday. It is in fact 10.08.84. Our Goddess is hitting her middle ages of 31-32 this year, but we're sure age won't be stopping her from doing what she loves; hunting aliens, time travellers, and espers and especially making the world a lot more interesting for us normal people and Kyon. It is still unknown whether we'll see another Haruhi anime on the screen even though the light novels are still going strong.
So when is your anime God's birthday? Maybe you prefer the handsome face with a dark God Complex of Light "Kira" Yagami (02.28.86) or have sworn a new allegiance to a new deity Hestia who is without an official birthday.
Leave your thoughts in the comments below and spend today on the look out of mysteries, phenomenon and excitement. Maybe that weird foreign exchange kid that joined your class recently will finally reveal his esper powers.
*EDIT* Thanks to user FoundonWeb for finding an error in my research. Turns out both Google and I are wrong in defining Haruhi's birthday. She is actually 28 today if we use the original publish date of 2003 for the Light Novel series. Still a little away from your thirties Haruhi, so make the most of out of your free twenties.
