When Kyon comments about Haruhi's joining every club in school and then quitting he unwittingly gives Haruhi an idea to start her own after school club. Thereafter Kyon and several others find themselves dragged, literally, into the Save our world by Overloading it with fun Suzumiya Haruhi's Brigade (the S.O.S. Brigade for short).

ZOMG... That was one of the weirdest but funniest episodes of any anime I've seen for a while... It's almost as WTF as Excel Saga but better...
So, my brother made me watch it. The first 5 minutes I was going what the hell is this? Then it hits me, but I don't wanna spoil it by telling you guys. The anime is subbed by A.F.K

If you decide to watch this anime, watch the ending dance sequence and compare it to this Gundam version, side by side...

This is a large version of the dance sequence -

*sigh* Almost died from laughing at the ending sequence (Gundam version)

I love this series! If you thought the first few episodes were confusing, episode 4 was very confusing since the animators intentionally put them out of order. Very original idea.

Anyway, the Gundam one was really nice. Too bad they removed it. There's another one with this random Asian guy dancing the ending. There's actually a lot of them on youtube. The whole Haruhi fandom is kinda scary, and it's only aired 4 episodes. But I think it's a excellent series.

I watched the first epi and I'm like, "What the crap is this???"
I don't think this series is gonna move me though... but I'm just gonna give it one more shot at epi 4 and see how it really is.

EDIT: Okay... that was random...

Episode 5 is out! Have yet to watch it but will after watching House...

BakaOnna - We seem to be the only people into the whole Haruhiism thing at the Hagaren forums, unless MasterKris would like to spread Haruhiism with us? Saw a Japanese guy doing the ending choreography. He had nice fluid movements and now I want to learn the choreography...

^Srry, but no Haruhiism spreadin' for me. I don't really like this anime and it's really not all that funny for me. The only Haruhiism I'm spreadin' will be the one from Ouran High School Host Club.

I'm really shocked by the popularity of this series. I wouldn't actually even call it "jumping the bandwagon" since it was nonexistant before episode 1 aired. Then when it came out, just 1 episode gained more than thousands of viewers. Just look at all the anime forums and blogs sites. They have over 5 pages of posts over this series. Then look at YouTube. There's so many versions of the ED dance sequence, that it's frightening. I've never seen any anime craze like this until now.

But I realize this anime is an aquired taste, kind of like FLCL and those other parody/comedy/random anime. Anyway, I love it.

Episode 7 was awesome, especially with Kyon's sarcastic commentaries and the FMP references.

Nagato and her bogus magic just crackes me up. The way she stopped the cricket in epi 7.

I'm really surprise about the popularity of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, too. There's already about 5 LJ communities for it and most forums I go to, there's a thread on it.

Kyon is easily my favorite character. His sarcastic remarks are the best!

I really like what I have seen of this anime so far. The characters are a bit clichéd, but still pretty likable on the whole. The animation and art is quite nice, and the little dance sequence for the end credits is smooth. I am interested to see what Haruhi actually does/is, and how she affects the whole universe, so to speak.

Personally, I dislike the intentional chronology mess for the first 5 episodes. I like to see things in order. Having it this way requires more thinking and makes it confusing.

Everyone's been talking about it. I'm through episode five, and I'm oddly failing to see how zomgbrilliant it is.

That twist in five was... special... but then again there's nothing that anime can really do to surprise me anymore.

And all the Moe mocking was still pretty cliche'd moe...

Episode eight has been out for a while now.

I about died when I figured out that at the end of the episode that they were doing a Phoenix Wright parody. LOL! Haruhi was Phoenix and Koizumi was Edgeworth.

I like this series. The humor in it seems more sophisticated than that of a lot of anime series... it's almost got an Arrested Development thing going with the reflexiveness and the regular references to other anime. Kyon's narration is also quite funny. It's not quite as funny as FLCL, but it's close.

Yes, I would have to agree that this anime is an acquired taste, but I love the humor. It's not hahaha funny, but more subtle. But this series ends with 14. I WANT A 2ND SEASON!!!
