86 (Anime) add (All reviews)
86 starts off with an interesting premise if you can ignore the clear parallel to Nazi Germany and their beliefs in the superior Aryan race. But if you can suspend your disbelief, and pretend that everyone has forgotten about Hitler in the distant future, then I suppose the power dynamic between the superior "Alba" and the inferior "86" might hold some water.

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 read more
