The Rebound of Haruhi Suzumiya

So we all know that the Endless Eight arc sucked. If you liked it, well then good for you you’re special, but for most of us anime watchers, it sucked. You know what? I’m going to make a graph….no wait…..two graphs, you’ll see why as the post moves on:

That's right, it's a purple graph, that's because purple is the best color ever.

That's right, it's a purple graph, that's because purple is the best color ever.

As you can see, this graph does not cover the second arc of the series. That’s because I don’t want you to know how I feel about it yet. Did I like it? Did I hate it? You’ll have to read before you find out. Let me describe this graph first.

The first episode was, in my opinion, one of the best episodes in the history of the Haruhi anime series franchise. It had everything I could ask for:

  • Time travel (something that actually follows the laws of time travel, if it were possible)
  • Relation to previous promos (you know, those security video things? That really made this an awesome episode for me).
  • Two different Mikurus (to be honest, the normal Mikuru is one of the most annoying characters ever in history, but the older one is actually cool)
  • Awesome shit.

I kind of just threw that last one in there, but I’m sure there was more awesome shit I forgot, so there you go. Next came the Endless Eight:

The Endless Eight arc started off with what seemed to me like a filler episode. I watched. I thought, “What the fuck is this. This is stupid.” Then came the second episode, and it was almost the same one. I thought, “Hmmm.” Then came the third episode (or was it the second), and the whole idea of time recursion came up, and I thought, “Fuuckkkkkk yeaaaaa.” Then they never fucking ended it, and the whole arc became very easy to write about, thanks to the wonders of copy and paste. Then that ended, which yielded to happiness of me, Glo the president of the world. Then came the next arc, The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya. This of course, means, I have to update the graph (which already may contain one mistake):

You know what? Fuck you if you don't like purple. You probably like some gay color like yellow. I used to like yellow once, then I realized it was fucking lame. Yellow sucks.

You know what? Fuck you if you don't like purple. You probably like some gay color like yellow. I used to like yellow once, then I realized it was fucking lame. Yellow sucks.

So from the graph, you can tell that with the *Sigh* arc, came a steady yet gradual rise in my liking of this season of Haruhi. Of course, after the shitty Endless Eight arc, it couldn’t really get worse. Unless I’m a retard, this arc is about the movie that was shown in episode 1 (or 11) of the first season of Haruhi, but it contained a lot more coolness, and a LOT more awesomeness, and as it progressed, I slowly saw the Haruhi of old. Then, in episode 24, the cat talked, and that made the show fucking awesome (as you could tell from the graph). Actually, can we get a shot of that cat? What’s his name, Shamisen?

Shamisen can talk.

EYE SED....Shamisen can talk.

SHAMISEN IS TALKING!

The cat then goes on to challenge the entire concept of human language with the group, and sounds like a philosopher, which just makes it that much better. However, no matter what arguments Kyon seemed to make, the cat persisted with it’s own ideas, because, as you know, cats don’t care about anything you have to say. I especially liked the end where Kyon told Haruhi about how Yuki, Miuru, and Koizumi were each an alien, time traveler, and esper respectively, and she didn’t believe him at all. Awesome ending. I now want more. Oh! The season is apparently over! Looks like no more Haruhi for another 2 years or something like that! Blllleeeeeeecchhhhhh. Either way, I felt like the show rebounded greatly after what I thought was a pretty poorly converted arc (the Endless Eight arc should have been four or five episodes in length, then it would have been perfect). That’s all eye really have to say. Thank you for your patronage!

Things that Suck: Sleep

EDIT: This post is a week old draft, and is a live account of a night when I decided not to sleep (wrote this over the course of several hours, taking breaks and what not, and stopped on;y at around 6 in the morning).

I’ve given my views on sleep before, somewhere on this mess of a site, but for some inexplicable reason, I find that I have the need to farther elaborate on my previous epiphany that sleep, does, in fact, suck.

Yea fuck sleep.

So why do I hate sleep? Is it because it’s 4:25 in the morning as I write this and I’m still not remotely tired? Is it because I haven’t really gotten any sleep at all for the past week just because I can’t fall asleep? Is it because, no matter how much I try, I can’t fall asleep, and end up tossing and turning all night? Yes. All of those reasons are reasons why sleep sucks. I hate it. Listen to my short story before I go into actually fact relating to why I’d rather stab myself then sleep voluntarily.

My Fuckin Story

(if you don’t want to read my dream, you suck, but you can skip to the second paragraph)

So last night, I finally fell asleep at around 3:30 or so. I had the sickest dream ever. It involved me going to jail, and then a sudden flash forward to when I got out of jail. Somehow, I had this sick huge house, that involved cliff stairs, and sick rooms that are so sick and awesome and unconventional that it almost made me bust. I really want to try and design this house because I can’t explain it. Anyway, there was a passage way from my room to a bar. Not just any bar though, a Pirate bar. Now I don’t know if you’ve heard the news, but pirates are cool. Anyway, jail apparently made me a badass, and I just took drinks and punched people for no reason. I punched a friend of mine in the face for tapping me on the shoulder. When he looked at me as if to say “WTF was that for?” I smiled and said, “Dude you can’t  sneak up on me like that. I was in jail dude I’m changed.” Truth be told, I knew he was saying hello, but I wanted to punch him, and knew I could get away with it because I was now hardened from jail. I was a bad ass and it was awesome. Then I woke up, fell asleep, and had the same dream. Then I woke up for real. There was another part of my dream involving a monster, two anime girls (one who I had to help and one who died both times (I had this dream twice). Both times she was slaughtered by the “monster” and explained what was happening to her both times. Apparently I have some serious mental problems in my subconscious. But this part of my dream reminded me of Resident Evil. Oh and people from Star Trek were there for some reason, except they were all played by that dude who just quit CSI. He died.

Anyway, I couldn’t wait to get to sleep tonight and maybe continue the dream, because my dreams are typically better than my actual life. However, I couldn’t sleep for shit. At 2 o’clock, when I was still WIDE AWAKE, I decided, “Fuck this, I’m pulling an all nighter, because sleep hates me. It teases me with its dreams, and then kicks me in the dirt the next day. Basically, the bouncer for sleep sucks. He stands at the rope, and laughs at me when I can’t get in. Well I bet you didn’t expect this, did you Sleep!? I’m going to diss you in a post! I’m turning the tables, because I don’t need you.

HERE IS WHY SLEEP SUCKS:

  • It’s bad for the economy.

Time is money, we waste probably half of our lives sleeping, which accomplishes nothing. Humans are in-efficient.

  • It takes away from anime watching time.

Self explanatory.

  • It isn’t fun, unless you have cool dreams.

I have cool dreams about once every two months, but when I have them, they’re absolutely insane and awesome.

  • Sleep causes cancer.

I made this up, but it might be true. I choose not to risk it.

Here’s a list of things you could do instead of sleep (EDIT: This turned into a play by play of what I was doing all night….sort of):
