You know what, Haruhi is back but for me the hype sorta died 2 years ago. All those rumors and posters and images of season 2 all those hopes, yea pretty much crushed. In addition by now I think everyone has read Baka Tsuki’s translation of the novel so now that we further know what happens (along the fact that Volume 10 is in limbo) there’s nothing for me to look forward to. It’s nice to see Haruhi animated again but after reading the novels I have serious beef with Kyon. I mean the entire reason I watched Haruhi was because it’s dead obvious she’s all tsundere for him, but the only thing he can think about is time travelling milfs and alien meganekkos. It’s like the novel author purposely doesn’t want to pair these 2, or if he had plans to, it was probably for the “conclusion” of the novel series – which he didn’t help by introducing another characters who inherited powers similar to Haruhi.
If that wasn’t enough, it seemed like every time they did a closeup shot of Haruhi’s face I thought her eyes were going to burn my monitor. Maybe it’s been a while but it felt like they added 50% more moe to every female in the show, as if they didn’t have enough of that shit with K-On. (LOL Kyoani fans fighting each other LOL) I’ll probably be watching this show, but I’ll leave it to the fanboys to babble about it since for me it simply is down to just watching because the fandom pretty much ended in 2007.
