I have always said that The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was, while good, a bit overrated, but the 5 minute long episodes that have been coming out recently have changed my mind entirely.
Even though these episodes are short, and animated differently (they remind me of Lucky Star A LOT), the characters are still awesome. Dare I say, better? Through just these short flicks, the following has happened:
- I have realized that Nagato is one of the awesomest characters ever.
- I have realized that Haruhi is loaded with awesome characters.
- I want the new season of Haruhi to come out NOW.
This wasn’t a long post, I just wanted to let everyone know that they need to watch this now. They’re actually on youtube in great quality, when watching them, it really brought me back to the good old days of anime on youtube. (reminisces) sigh~….if you can’t somehow find them there, download the torrents….(Shamisen subs).
