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.


This spin-off won the Network Award at the 14th Animation Kobe Awards, along with Nyoro-n Churuya-san.

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

Okay, the only reason that I'm still a Haruhi fan is for two reasons: 1) the original Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya 2006 and 2) this ONA. ^^

The original idea of The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya came from a parody comic series that pretty much subtly made fun of the original anime. And, I'm not usually one for these kinds of parodies, but I just couldn't resist~! ^^ Also, I love how evil Yuki is shown to be in the series... *devious grin* Not to mention that random lion that was thrown into the mix as well... ^^;;;;

The art... Well, let's just say that it's very 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

Throughout all of human history, we have been searching for the an answer. Who created us, why, when, and how? These are the questions that have pushed scientific discovery, religious fanatics, and Nagaru Tanigawa. These questions have pushed him so far as to create an alright anime about our beloved creator, a high school girl. This is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

The story, if you’ll call it that, is about our wonderful Nick Caraway character, Kyon, and his trip though high school as he is accompanied by a miss Haruhi Suzumiya (Who we will refer to as HZ). The main meat and potatoes of read more
