Spoiler-san 08: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya


Show Subject: The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

I'll give you all a plot description, but I'm pretty confident most of you are familiar with this show. If anyone isn't, I suggest reading a few spoilers, because the odd premise was what broke my resistance to watching the show. We are going to record the show this Sunday night (10 PM EST,) and are still looking for another show lover to jump on board. Send us email on the tips line, or just post here. Otherwise, don't be afraid to leave some love (or loathing) for Haruhi. Possible comments could include what episode order you enjoyed more (broadcast or dvd,) thoughts on how lame espers sound/are (they were,) and which characters were your favorite.

Plot: Needless to say, the plot follows a student by the name of Haruhi Suzumiya, who has fallen into a deep "melancholy." Highly eccentric, she drags her fellow students on various entertaining misadventures.

That said, these people are terrifying devout int their desire to keep her entertained and ignorant. Thus, she will not will inadvertently destroy the world, or voluntarily remake it.

Granted, the show has terrific animation and great timing, but those are just pluses on that already amusing premise.
