A parody series featuring the entire cast of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in a smaller form factor. Among the changes are: Yuki plays eroge, Haruhi is even more obnoxiuous and loud, Mikuru is even more emotional and Koizumi harbors a deep love for Kyon. Kyon, on the other hand, is generally the same as ever.

In the never-ending wait for a real second season of Haruhi, Kadokawa decided to present us with this short web series called the Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya. And to be fair and honest, these series of short mini-episodes was more enjoyable that I would have ever expected. Here is a short and fast review with its ups and downs

+ Nice and funny situations ensured in every episode
+ Many overused themes in animes but taken to the extreme for extra lols

- Could have been a little longer in length per episode but thats just me wanting more
- Those wanting actual substance should go look somewhere else

Yay, first reviewer for this anime! X D

Story (5/10): Unfortunately, this ONA suffers in not having a plot. While I do understand that this is more of those "one event per one episode" kind of anime, there are some glimpses of storyline riddled throughout, and I do believe that an anime should either have a good, well developed storyline, or none at all. The producers should be more consistent with what they input into this work, and not try to add anything out of the blue.
Art (9/10): The art is fantastic and clean, making the entire viewing experience that much more enjoyable. The characters all read more

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: February 14, 2014. Review #79: The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya.

Let’s Go!

This is about A comical spin-off of the popular "Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" anime series that originally aired back in 2006 involving all the major characters in more child-like forms of their animated selves going through various spoofs of previous plot line; like Nagato and the dreaded laptop with a twist. face offs with the rack of costumes that were stuffed in the corner of the club room. and dodge ball tournaments on a sugar rush.

Yeah, it’s a random spin-off. and this spin-off is awesome. Well, for the most part. During read more

So I’m not really sure about this show. I am not going to say if you liked the normal show that you will like this one. I’m not even really sure if we could call this the same as the main TV show as the art style, the humor, and even sometimes the idea of the characters is a bit different. Each episode is about 5 minutes long and consists of even smaller clips that mimic a day in the life style show. It reminds me a lot of Azumanga Daioh with the humor as each little skit seems to be trying to make a read more

Anime: Lucky☆Star
Both are Chibi. Lucky Star is only Chibi in specific scenario's, though. They are also both about a group of teens going through comedic scenario's.

Anime: Nyoro-n Churuya-san
It contains a very similar type of humor, which of course is no surprise.  
reportRecommended by EarlGhey
Anime: Hetalia Axis Powers
Both are funny ONA's. Hetalia is so much better, though. I guess it depends on your sense of humor and how much you tolerate overrated anime. The point is that they're funny and really cute and they have chibis.

Anime: Shakugan no Shana Specials
Both are spin-offs from original series and some main characters are chibi.

Anime: Petit Eva: Evangelion@School
Both are 3-D like animated series with very short episodes and are very funny.

Anime: Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou
Like Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou, Suzumiya Haruhi-chan is a spin off / parody.
Both are "chibi-like" comedy with the main characters from their series.
