    A must watch for every anime fans!
    Hi there.
    This series is great. It is fun, have great characters and I found it interesting.
    Have only watched season one so far.

    But here is the thing you need to know, the order here is the broadcast order, and that is not the chronological order.
    If you see E00 first, it WILL spoil a LOT! Trust me, dont do that.

    Ok, the episodes under 2006 is season 1 and the one under 2009 is ...

    This was a great anime, but....
    I loved this series a bunch, the story was great, the comedy was great, and the anime was great in general, the only problem I had with this anime was the episodes 2-9 of the second season, I mean repeating the same plot over and over again with different animations is okay, but over eight episodes in a twelve episode series just wasn't a good Idea.

    Cute At Times, But Terrible Storytelling
    Sorry to everyone else that loved this show, but I think it only deserved 2 stars -- i.e. "below average". Here's why:

    The entire story line basically didn't make any sense. There is supposed to be a super-secret time traveling alien beings affecting everyday life, but this part of the story is completely botched. On the one hand, we have Haruhi who starts out quietly and smugly ignoring ...

    It Has A Fandom You Will Love Or Hate
    Yes, the fandom can be quite annoying, but this show at least deserves some credit for it. It is a great show after all. The characters are great, and the storytelling is fantastic. In fact, that amazing storytelling is what saved me on the more tedious episodes. This leads me into discussing plot. Well, to be frank, the plot is all over the place. You go from endless eight to great action ...

    The Melancholy of Confused Viewers - Awesome series ruined by misordered episodes.
    Okay, let's start at the beginning. Seriously, I'm starting from the beginning. And there's a reason I'm starting from the beginning, even though starting from the beginning is seen as passe from some quarters of Anime Fandom.

    When I first started watching this show, It became an impossible endeavor. The reason is because here on Crunchyroll, there's no way to solve the mystery of what ...

    One girl can is all you need to change the world
    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is a successful light novel series that not only has been adapted by a two season anime series (and two spin off), but also several manga series and has surprised an impressive number of people in Japan and all over the world.
    This series tells the story of Kyon, your average teenager which has just started high school. On the first day of school, the girl ...

    Just one of those animes you "have to watch"
    I had no idea what to expect going into this anime. Only that everyone said I had to watch it at some point.

    But I think going in blind made me enjoy it even more. I spent the first few episodes wondering whether I should believe what these characters are saying, but that made the payoff so much greater.

    As a lot of people have said, Endless Eight is not a misnomer. It really feels like it ...

    OMG!! Do what she says!! Now!!
    What a Superb Show!! and let me tell you why...

    The show has a story which will bend your mind. I found that the 2006 version can be watched in two different orders. One is the televised order and the other is the original written order. I watched the written order first and then the televised order, both are good.

    The story revolves around Haruhi, a strong willed high school girl who does ...

    Popular show doesn't equal excellent, but it's not bad, mostly
    I'll admit, this was a good enough show. However, I didn't watch it until I was pretty well into my anime career, so it didn't seem as special as the hype suggests. Although, there is a certain bundle of episodes in one of the seasons that, well... let's say you feel like you've gained a badge of honor for watching them.

    It would be wrong for me not to mention the good points. It is ...

    Confused as heck, Be warned.
    I watched this series several years ago, near when it first came out. At that time I was intrigued by the first season, always expecting something bigger to happen.

    Though disappointed by the end of the season, I awaited for more.

    By the time the second season had come out, the memories of the first season was in an odd shamble as I watched the episodes in broadcast and chronological ...
