Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya 01
涼宮ハルヒちゃんの憂鬱 Episode 01
Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuutsu 01

SPOILER Summary/Synopsis:

Kyon has a strange dream where his school companions take on new forms. See the legal, subtitled video –> HERE.

Update (6-Aug-2015): The video no longer exists, of course.


The orgasms are already going on heavier than those lucky enough to own a copy of Rapelay before Amazon banned it are having. *_* But that’s another blog entry (maybe).

For me, there wasn’t anything special, brilliant, great, superb, wonderful, outrageously funny, or even plain funny in this short. At best, I had a couple of smile moments at Haruhi-dog’s crack of the whip so that Kyon could count sheep. The stuff about Itsuki being a representation of Mt. Fuji wasn’t funny. I didn’t laugh at Yuki being the eggplant. I didn’t laugh at the crane (Tsuruya? I’m not versed enough with the characters to know for sure). I did note the McDonald’s sponsorship of the anime though.

Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuutsu 01I am going to be in the very tiny minority here based on the copious amounts of male bodily fluids all over YouTube’s servers, causing them to experience problems even as I write. That’s fine. I’ve never seen the brilliance of this franchise and I never will. That said, I do give Kadokawa kudos for bringing the anime over with subtitles legally to the U.S. (even if they did drop the honorifics from the subtitles while leaving “chan” in the official English title).

    Actually, I found it very funny… Mostly because I know the 4koma-Manga this video based on.^^;

    It actually a reference to the three signs of fortune in the “first dream of the new year”.

    Well, it´s still a matter of preferences. Japanese 4koma-humour is always an issue.

    For example: Did you like Azumanga Daioh or Lucky Star?
    I did, but I know many people who think it´s just crack… and maybe they are totally right.^^;

    I’ve never watched “Lucky Star,” but I did watch and love “Azumanga Daioh.” The moment Yukari-sensei steals a student’s bike just so she can get to school on time (completely unexpected and wrong, therefore making it very funny to me), I knew the anime had the makings of a winning series. In the end, it was all about the characters and their lives (as well as those wacky moments) that made “Azumanga Daioh” so special.

    I’ve read a few of the 4-koma manga that “Azumanga Daioh” is based off of, but only a few. What little I read seemed OK, though I agree that 4-koma stuff can be an issue at times, especially since so many of them don’t end on a joke.
