Ep 13 was The Day of Sagittarius on the DVD. Funny episode. Gotta love Yuki's hacking skills and Mikuru clueless with her neko-man crew was a funny scene also.

yes that was funny but it wasnt the REAL episode 13... god dam i hate this order system thing

the apparent real episode 13 was esper fight-tastic. Felt like it didnt have much "meat" in the episode but I enjoyed it.

Actually, this is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 5 which is ep 13 in broadcast order. The Day of Sagittarius is actually ep 11.

Anyway, interesting ep, Haruhi explaining the insignificance of her existence was quit depressing. Our insignificance in this world is so small that having it explained for you is kinda sad.

Yeah but when you get down to it, Haruhi is actually a pretty relatable character on many levels. She doesn't want to be some boring normal human. Of course, we know she isn't. But, the sad thing is she doesn't.

Huh, episode 13 was about the espers and closed space for me. I only have one more episode to watch but I doubt it will conclude anything. I'll be finishing this series tonight within 30 mins.
Such junk...

This is what "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" IS.

Dvd order - Day of the Sagittarius. I don't think its actually possible to reprogramme a game while its running.... Though the cryengine 3 has that live create thing. I guess its kinda the same in a way.

Anyway I loved this episode. I'm so sad it nearly over. I might skip some of these episodes when watching season 2 if there's nothing changed.

I now understand a lot, this is the episode where we see the Esper's powers, closed space explanation and the Celestials... and for some reason, the order of the episodes so far finally start making some sort of sense.

I watched the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya part V.

I could really relate to loli Haruhi in that scene. I used to think in a very similar manner as her. I think I subconsciously make personal decisions based on what's "original" and different from the average joe's even to this day (not to Haruhi's extent of course, but still). Haruhi's words just felt too familiar. Although, I try to refine my individuality everyday and am pretty happy with how things turned out (especially because of anime). Haruhi will definitely be the same, and more. I just know it :)

Any way, The alternate dimension, the Espers and "Endless" (Rave fans will understand the reference ^^) were pretty intriguing. If Haruhi truly is the subconscious "creator/alterer" of the universe, that's probably only the tip of the tip of the iceberg. It's frighteningly awesome!

Overall a very dialogue heavy episode which pointed out a lot of new and interesting aspects.

Whow, great episode, one of the best imo. Koizumi is probably my favorite character and he got so much screentime this ep. But at the end of it all(because, yeah, it feels really bad but there's only one episode left) the episode order makes more and more sense. I probably wouldn't like as much this anime if I watched them in the original order.

Only one, last, episode remains, what's gonna happen :S

Yuki!!! Haha she's seriously my favorite character. I find it interesting that she listens to Kyon's (and Haruhi's) orders and needs confirmation. That was cute at the end when she said maybe she'll spend some time with the computer club once in a while :) She's grown too as a character.

I'm commenting about the "actual episode 13" and not the arranged order.

Didn't expect something like "plot's being crazy" or something.

Half of the episode was repeated ..
Poor Nagato. I hope the last ep will conclude nicely.

A deja vu. Now I see where this is going and why this is considered to
be the most boring part in this show. I hope it'll be worth it in the end.

Watched Melancholy Part V. The Ergo Proxy vibe is strong with this one, and it's not just the BGM. Really interesting considering both shows originally aired at the same time.

Also, while I agree that Suzumiya's animation quality and detail is amazing, especially for the time it was made in, it also makes me appreciate Ergo Proxy even more. Animation wise that show was at least on par with Suzumiya.

Dang, a lot of information regarding the closed space and espers.
Don't forget the relationship between Haruhi and the universe at the same time.

I can definitely relate to Haruhi, just how insignificant everything is.

I saw the ep where they're trapped in a time loop...
It was a pretty cool and trippy experience. Felt a little mind fucked.
Good ep. 4/5.

Endless Eight -realization of infinite time loop-

All I can say is mind fuck and mind blowing. At first, it is a same repetitive event with different camera angle but it did recycled over more than thousands!!! HOLY!!!

Mikuru when she cried is moegasm. She is too cute <3
Kissing Haruhi will be the best solution to get out of this loop or maybe going out or dating.

This series is worth 10/10
This is worth reading Light novel for the true conclusion to this series. Good job author!! You never fail to surprise me.
