I don't think it's overrated but I'm not quite sure how much hype is out there now. I just liked the way they broadcasted the episodes and the novels were outstanding. The only reason the order was messed up in the anime was for a more dramatic ending.

Okay, my opinion on this (it may take a while to write)

(Please do not generalize on the fans of anime. Narutards should be judged only when they make an idiotic comment or act; especially since flaming isn't allowed. I'll be here reporting flamers on both sides. I'm talking about you two, clockwise and animekami.)

The Haruhi-hype (a report by me):

Okay then. Let me start off with some facts about Haruhi. First off, in 2006, it was rated within the top 100 best anime of all time. Secondly, it is a media franchise composing of Video Games, Anime, Light Novels and Manga.

The hype may have been influenced by the many people watching it. For example, it is obvious that many people hate Naruto, however, it has become an anime that many people like and even made it into the top 100 ranking. Obviously, people will only vote for anime that they know. The Naruto-hype may have spread the word of that anime for others to know about. Because people who hate Naruto will not be want to vote for it and there is no way to vote something down, Naruto was able to gain many votes without losing any at all.

In my humble opinion based off of experience, I have seen many anime that become popular also being the most hated. This could also be an effect of the hype. As said before, there is no way to vote down, therefore, those who hate anime do not count in polls to judge the next favorite.

My opinion of Haruhi? I love the anime, it's my favorite. It shows the life of an average high-schooler who learns that a classmate possesses special powers. The viewer follows his life and learns more about who Haruhi is and her view on life.

The blue words are my biased opinions. Haruhi's view on life is something I have thought about since I was 5-6 when my mother died. I noticed that my father and I were moving along well without her and thought that she wasn't a necessity to my life (I was cruel, forgive me for thinking so), also following that thought, I thought that maybe others in life were the same and that no one person really ever mattered to the world. Immediately, I felt I could connect with Haruhi's situation.

This anime gives one a philosophical view on life with a comedic touch.

Back to the point, the hype that belongs to Haruhi. Very rarely does an anime get a lot of popularity, and with popularity comes many who will hate that anime. Seeing as Haruhi gained some hype, it deserves some credit for itself.

And because I'm too lazy to write more, I'll end it here.
After this post, all flamers will be reported.

One more word for all of you, although Haruhi may be loved or hated by you, do not force your opinions on others.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I feel this is enough information for one to decide if it is overrated or not.


i respect what you wrote but didnt you find it repetitive??? i mean she believes in aliens and the 3 sub charaters *forgot there names* believes she is a god who created that world and could destroy it in an instant i would say that the fact that the episodes arnt in order is what makes ppl hate it and the paste that haruhi moves at


I really didn't find it too repetitive, except during the Mansion episodes. When you watch anime, you expect it to be fiction; that's a part of why storylines are amazing. In the storyline of this, Haruhi is a God who could destroy the world in an instant. The pace is slow but tolerable. The steadiness of the pace allows us to accept the new information and think about it before deciding, similar to Clannad. The shuffled episodes add a nice touch to the anime and helps the rewatch value if you can stand it.


i believe its the shuffled episode that has a lot to do with ppl disliking and saying its overrated and the past of showing she is a god is slow till last 2 eps but still the story line is not the best of describing her as a GOD

Perhaps, but only because the season was too short. other than that, I thought it was pretty fun to watch.

The storyline describes her as a crazy girl who believes in the supernatural until it is revealed that she is a god by the other three. It has comedy along the way which entertains us while we wait for the revealing, so it's fine for the patient viewers (around episode...4-5 chronologically, I think).
Yes, the shuffling through me off for the first few episodes, but I got used to it.

I love Haruhi. I think people may like it for the wrong reasons (it's popular) without looking at all the possibitlities an unknowing, bored God could have.
If anything is overated it's Lucky Star

Firstly, I will start out that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and there will always be some who like an anime and others who don't.
I personally found Suzumia Haruhi to be an entertaining anime. The storyline was a bit out there but extremely engaging and funny, but I also didn't watch the anime in the order of episode airing (there is a chronological order that the anime can be watched in).
I can understand people being a bit weirded out by how the episodes where aired, especially starting with the "first" episode that was totally random.
However, starting a thread for the sole purpose of ranting seems a bit iffy (since from the quote below, you don't really seem to be interested in hearing the opinions of people who liked the anime, unless of course your being sarcastic and I just can't tell?)

who voted no??? well anyways to the person who voted no you are obviously a person that does not know any anime


Finally, I will state that I had always looked at the "Haruhiism" stuff as people being a bit too overenthusiastic (I am editiing this because the actual definition of haruhiism is a bit ambiguous to me), but I will agree that sometimes people need to be able to better separate reality from fiction/entertainment
