An anime adaptation of the 4-panel strip manga release: Nyoron Churuya-san. Based on Suzumiya Haruhi's energetic and 'always up to go' character, Tsuruya.

Churuya is a girl with a strong passion for smoked cheese. But Kyon and the rest of the crew know this, and they make use of the weakness. They make her do all kinds of things with smoked cheese as a possible reward. But Churuya isn't aware of this evil plot, thus she maintains the effort for the sake of cheese. Each day is a struggle to get the beloved smoked cheese, but it's much harder than she could ever imagine!


This spin-off won the Network Award at the 14th Animation Kobe Awards, along with Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu.

| Elegy to the ~Nyoron | The real art of drama.
Nyoro-n Churuya-san focuses on the struggle of a lively school girl suffering from severe dwarfism. A girl named Churuya who fights frantically to obtain what is denied to her. Churuya's very own forbidden fruit, smoked cheese.

Churuya’s world is unlike any other, it’s a place where the inhabitant wear emotionless expressions whose gazes are filled with indifference and scorn. Hysterically staring at her while wearing slick smiles whenever she isn’t looking. Churuya-san story ingeniously explains a tragedy of sorts that encompasses the concept of egoism. Put in simple words: "This cheese is mine. You can’t read more

I came in expecting big things. I came out with bruises cause the thing that was inside was HUGE it took up most of the room!! This is just too adorable, with a little bit of dry humor in it that makes it so refreshing like this can of pepsi I was just drinking. I mean it's 2 am now, yet after watching this, my mind subconsciously thinks its 2 xu (ie the time keeping system used in Happiness land). How many times in our lives have we all thought to ourselves "Nyoron," when we couldn't get what we wanted, whether it be smoked cheese read more

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: February 14, 2013. Supplemental Review of "Haruhi-chan" : Nyoron Churuya-san.

It isn’t easy being cheesy. Why? Because Nyoron Churuya-san is…

Here goes.

This is a series of shorts about Tsuruya from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, based on the iconic format of the Nyorōn Churuya-san manga. Episodes mainly concern her search for smoked cheese. Yeah…This is really what this anime is about.

To be technical, this is a Kyoto Animation production and boy… you really have to give these guys a pass on this one but it will be extremely hard to do such a thing. The animation is quite simple and it looks like read more

Story: 3, Art: 7, Sound: 9, Character: 7, Overall: 7
Lol is really all I can say when it comes to the writing in this ONA for the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. It somehow makes "Nyoro-n" the punchline for everything, and still be funny! It's funny and creative, but it's like it was written up when everyone had the midnight giggles and were bored to tears.
The art is smooth but not detailed. Voice acting is perfect since it's still the cast of the main series. The music is simple but appropriate. Characters are all hilarious and enjoyable. But read more
