Synopsis

In an alternate universe, shy, awkward Yuki Nagato attempts to court her crush, Kyon, with the help of her best friend and neighbor, the perky and indomitable Ryoko Asakura. Together, the trio defends their high school literature club from extermination…and from the pestering of their over-the-top classmate Tsuruya and her friend and minion Mikuru.

While I've never been much of a fan of the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise I can still say at the very least that I admired the off kilter charm it had and understood the appeal that others would find in its self-aware meta humor. It was quirky, upbeat and had a trademark style of doing things that was uniquely its own. By itself that might not seem like much of an accomplishment but when placed through a filter with the countless of school slice of life titles produced after its inception, it becomes more apparent why it gained its popularity. Despite the anime industry being saturated read more

As a fan of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, I won't hesitate to watch or read (or at least plan to) anything related to that series. Of course, that includes this spin-off, The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. I read a few volumes of the manga and loved it, so when this anime was announced, my excitement was only doubled! However, I admit that I also had my concerns, as Kyoto Animation, the studio that worked on the original anime, didn't work on the spin-off. As it aired, I found that it wasn't received that well, either. However, that doesn't change the fact that I still read more

What is the point of a spin-off that revolves around a former side character? Well, common knowledge would suggest that it is a chance to explore different aspects of an already familiar concept by pushing a character that used to be just another part of an ensemble into the spotlight and building a show around him/her. So, let us answer the most important question of this review right off the bat: Do I think that Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu (or Yuki-chan as I'll be calling it from here on out) is a good spin-off? No. Why? Because it fails to capture the charm of the read more

Its amazing how slight changes in perspective can cause something that on the surface seemed initially disjointed and disappointing, into an emotional experience that brings a surprising amount of satisfaction.

Like most, I went into the series expecting the enjoyably discordant storyline, animation, and voice acting that the original series and movie had. I was consequently confused by Kyon's noticeably different appearance and a number of other slight visual changes that I shamefully explained away by learning the original studio hadn't worked on it. The first few episodes made it abundantly clear that it was not "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya", and finding that out read more
