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.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu won the Theatrical Film Award at the Animation Kobe Awards in 2010. The film earned an estimated 200 million yen in its first week of release in Japan; it also placed in the top 10 for Japanese box office sales in its first weekend.

The film was released on Blu-ray and DVD in Japan on December 18, 2010. The movie was released on the same formats in North America by Bandai Entertainment as The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya on September 20, 2011. It was later republished by Funimation Entertainment on May 30, 2017.

Ending Theme


Apr 9, 2010
To say that the Suzumiya Haruhi franchise has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for fans of the show would be an understatement. The first season hit the anime world like a storm, and huge numbers of people immediately swore their devotion to Haruhi and the SOS Brigade. The second season though, sorely tested the patience of many fans with the lesson in tedium known as "Endless Eight", and many were left wondering where it all went wrong. The ups and downs of the franchise are well documented and commented upon, and while Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (2009) had some great moments, the lacklustre ...
Apr 10, 2010
Assuming that a standard episode is about 20 minutes long, many would ask, “Couldn’t they just have taken out some “Endless Eight” episodes and add this movie into the 2009 Haruhi season?” However, with The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya being 2 hours and 40 minutes, it would not be possible to fit it into a 14 episode season without condensing the majority of the plot and the monologues of Kyon.

First and foremost, this movie is indeed a sequel to both of the previous two seasons of Haruhi. Watching this movie without seeing both seasons is not suggested. For those who have seen both seasons, I ...

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. Even for this series known for being out there, this film feels very grounded which may or may not be your cup of tea.


It is very noticeable that the animation is extremely fluid. The art style is not too much different from ...
