THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Ep 13 was The Day of Sagittarius on the DVD. Funny episode. Gotta love Yuki's hacking skills and Mikuru clueless with her neko-man crew was a funny scene also.
Yeah but when you get down to it, Haruhi is actually a pretty relatable character on many levels. She doesn't want to be some boring normal human. Of course, we know she isn't. But, the sad thing is she doesn't.
ColdBeans said: Anyway, interesting ep, Haruhi explaining the insignificance of her existence was quit depressing. Our insignificance in this world is so small that having it explained for you is kinda sad.
This is what "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya" IS.
Dvd order - Day of the Sagittarius. I don't think its actually possible to reprogramme a game while its running.... Though the cryengine 3 has that live create thing. I guess its kinda the same in a way.
Anyway I loved this episode. I'm so sad it nearly over. I might skip some of these episodes when watching season 2 if there's nothing changed.
I now understand a lot, this is the episode where we see the Esper's powers, closed space explanation and the Celestials... and for some reason, the order of the episodes so far finally start making some sort of sense.
I watched the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya part V.
I could really relate to loli Haruhi in that scene. I used to think in a very similar manner as her. I think I subconsciously make personal decisions based on what's "original" and different from the average joe's even to this day (not to Haruhi's extent of course, but still). Haruhi's words just felt too familiar. Although, I try to refine my individuality everyday and am pretty happy with how things turned out (especially because of anime). Haruhi will definitely be the same, and more. I just know it :)
Any way, The alternate dimension, the Espers and "Endless" (Rave fans will understand the reference ^^) were pretty intriguing. If Haruhi truly is the subconscious "creator/alterer" of the universe, that's probably only the tip of the tip of the iceberg. It's frighteningly awesome!
Overall a very dialogue heavy episode which pointed out a lot of new and interesting aspects.
Whow, great episode, one of the best imo. Koizumi is probably my favorite character and he got so much screentime this ep. But at the end of it all(because, yeah, it feels really bad but there's only one episode left) the episode order makes more and more sense. I probably wouldn't like as much this anime if I watched them in the original order.
Only one, last, episode remains, what's gonna happen :S
Yuki!!! Haha she's seriously my favorite character. I find it interesting that she listens to Kyon's (and Haruhi's) orders and needs confirmation. That was cute at the end when she said maybe she'll spend some time with the computer club once in a while :) She's grown too as a character.
Watched Melancholy Part V. The Ergo Proxy vibe is strong with this one, and it's not just the BGM. Really interesting considering both shows originally aired at the same time.
Also, while I agree that Suzumiya's animation quality and detail is amazing, especially for the time it was made in, it also makes me appreciate Ergo Proxy even more. Animation wise that show was at least on par with Suzumiya.
