On a cold December day, Kyon arrives at school prepared for another outing with his fellow SOS Brigade members. However, much to his surprise, he discovers that almost everything has changed completely: Haruhi Suzumiya and Itsuki Koizumi are nowhere to be found; Mikuru Asahina does not recognize him at all; Yuki Nagato is a regular human; and Ryouko Asakura has mysteriously returned. Although he is no stranger to the supernatural, Kyon is disturbed by this odd turn of events and decides to investigate on his own.

Finding himself to be the only person that is aware of the previous reality, Kyon is now faced with a difficult choice: to finally live the normal life he has always wanted, or uncover a way to turn back the hands of time and restore his chaotic yet familiar world.

Have you ever wondered why this series is called ‘The MELANCHOLY of Haruhi Suzumiya’? If you only watch the original two seasons of the anime, you may be left without an answer. It is this film-length sequel, Disappearance, which encapsulates that melancholia and is one of the best anime movies ever produced. This review will be spoiler free.

Who is Erik Satie? You may or may not have heard the name, but you have certainly heard his work. The Trois Gymnopedies, a series of three piano compositions, are his most famous; they are also a major inspiration for modern ambient music. Many, however, associate Satie’s Trois ...

I originally wanted to write a really long review discussing the entire show and how brilliant this movie is at addressing everything, but I don't really think it's needed, and I don't think anyone would really care lol. This is a retrosepective on the first two seasons, but only for the sole purpose of trying to explain why this movie is so special. It's important to note that I'm mostly talking about the story here, the music, animation, and voice acting are all 10/10 amazing. Season 1 is a bunch of fun slice of life and mini adventures with one amazing arc that is nearly ...

Mixed Feelings

The premise for this movie is not groundbreaking but it is an interesting one. Aside from that that, the movie is seriously too long with pacing issues especially in the beginning. For such a long movie, not a lot happens that moves the plot foward. I think it could have been condensed half an hour and still get the same point across.
