THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
This isn't really making much sense, I'll have to rewatch in chronological order :) But how cute are Kyon and Haruhi :) Looking forward to rewatching and watching the sequel when they release it.

They are adorable. ^^

Ah, I'm too lazy for a chronological rewatch, so I'm just watching it in order the first time around. xD

Hmmm.ep 9 is actually ep 14 in chronological order.hard to think that this is the last ep.i guess i have to finish the series to understand..
the whole silent part with jsut yuki reading and voices coming out was too weird.no point to it i think.

In reference to the DVD episode 9 with the disappearance of the computer club president, I think I'm kind of lost with this episode. Hopefully I won't be for long. :D

I was wondering about the anime and tv show references when Yuki was sitting there in the club room, reading. (Total randomness, I liked it though xD)
I could spot One Piece and Detective Conan references, if I'm not totally mistaken.

Anyways, I think it was nice to see that the ending of the chronological order was much more laid back than the airing order ending. =) That way, the outcomes left two very different impressions.
And yay for Haruhi x Kyon. :3

lol the whole long shot of nagato reading while you could hear voices from a classroom nearby gave me a nostalgic sense of my high school days when i was alone in study period..
Still confused on the order of the episodes and what not but i dont mind anymore, it just makes it that much more "wtf" ><

Something tells me there might be streaming sites that took advantage of the series having two possible orders to play a prank and create more possible orders, lol.

Anywho, this was the rainy day episode for me. Kyon picked up a heater, miku was forced to try on outfits. Not really one of my favorite episodes but it was okay.

I'm streaming from animecrazy.net and I think that is airing order.
Such junk...

This is, to me, the best episode of the series.

ED: So it's the Japanese title now? The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was fine, but okay, bring the Japanese. They're original after all.

That was boring. The ending was the only good part.

2/5

The score right now is at 5/10.

The scene where Nagato was alone in the clubroom is actually kinda like a guessing game of "Identify the Anime". Turn up the volume to listen for the different character voices; helps too if it's properly subbed.

One of the better episodes imho.

I saw the "Someday in the Rain".

So Kyon is stuck with the labour once again, well if you get to spend some alone time with Haruhi afterwards it's worth it right?

I really liked the side of Haruhi we saw near the end of the episode. I didn't think I could love her any more than I already did, guess I was wrong :)

Mikuru photoshoot! Koizumi agreeing with everything Haruhi proposed was funny. ^^

I liked this episode pretty much. It served for a show build-up purpose and it went very well in my opinion.

So this was the actual ending, if you followed the chronological order.


And you got two other endings:

Well I still enjoyed this, glad I watched it even after all the confusion around :)

I laughed so hard at the cave cricket scene, probably harder than I should've. Did Koizumi really say "ffumofu" or was it bad subs or something? o_o The ending of this episode was really interesting, it would actually be cooler if Yuki was the real female mc and not Haruhi. Yuki is probably my favorite character aside from Kyon.

Watched this series in chronological order so I serve this as the last episode.

Anyway, is this... a time-wasting episode? Well, everything is okay but what I really liked is the Suzumiya Haruhi arcs. This series gets 8/10.

If only I watched the last Suzumiya Haruhi arc episode as the last one, probably or most likely I will give this a 9.

Someday In the Rain - Last episode of the entire series in chronological order following computer game battle.

Always enjoy those little jealous Haruhi moments.
Nothing much happened, Kyon brought a heater back, seems like a pretty calm and fitting end. Tons better than watching this in 2006 broadcast order, at least now I understood what was going on.

Pretty interesting how they fit the Sighs of Haruhi in the second season 3 years later and it fit perfectly within the episodes of the first season. Other than the fact that Haruhi looked a bit different.

It's what we're all waiting for, let's face it. I am still holding out hope that it will happen someday.

someday in the rain - final after two seasons.

That was good, but weird ending, maybe would be better as the mid series. Probably watching the movie after that would be a good idea... but now I feel like it lost the original impact.

Holy hell this was a slooooooow episode. not bad, but... I just watched it and I already forgot what exactly happened. Kyon went and got a heater, fell asleep when he got back, and... I think that's about it.

I'm sensing a romantic attraction between Kyon and Haruhi, though.

-Broadcast Order: "Someday in the Rain"-

Don't know, Slice of Life at its maximum. The last bit of episode was particularly enjoyable, for the rest, nah. I bet this is what we'll ever have of other sides of Harui's personality, isn't it?

Watching Nagato read in real-time in two separate really long scenes simultaneously captures the best and worst thing about this show.

This is actually probably one of my favorite episodes so far. I think the people who don't like it may not quite have gotten it. Being the last chronological episode of the series, it's a subtle, little episode about how the brigade has slowly grown to become their home, craziness and all. The whole episode is just about Kyon going out into the cold to get a heater for them, taking care of his "family", and there are all these little details showing how much they care about each other, like Haruhi putting her cardigan on Kyon and him out in the cold yearning for Asahina's tea "to warm his body and spirit".

Made me quite emotional.
