Ratings & Reviews
The Continuation of Haruhi Suzumiya
It is great that Funimation is able to revive this series. This movie takes place after the events of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya series, and forces the story's narrator and protagonist, Kyon, to experience a where he never met the high energy Haruhi Suzumiya. This movie is a bit more serious than the previous episodes, but is perfect if you're a fan of the series.
The Return of a Classic
With gorgeous animation, beautiful music, and a great mystery story filled with tons of heart (and even character development), the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya really is one of the best anime films of our time. If you haven't watched it yet, then this is without a doubt the perfect time to do so!
Also, for those who don't know, it has been confirmed that this release will come with a reversible cover that will make it look consistent with the other blu-rays in the Ultimate Collector's Edition that Funimation released last year!
Why put "The Movie" on cover?
by fenson -
If this is the final cover, then i guess Funimation thinks anime fans are stupid.Why would you put "The Movie" on the cover? Anime fans know that Melancholy=Anime series & Disappearance =Movie.This is my all time favorite anime movie.
Funimation still puts out good products(in most cases-Lucky Star was a horrible release),but used to be more fan friendly.At least they don't use those ugly yellow subs that Sentai uses.
Haruhi Suzumiya Movie!!!
by Lust4lyfe101 -
I LOOOOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!
I usually don't watch anime movies that often but Haruhi Suzumiya was my 3rd anime I have watched so I had to watch the movie.
The movie is over 2 hrs long which made me not want to watch it in subs at the time but I bit my tongue and did.
OMG!!! I did not get off my seat till I was fully done this movie as it was excellent and entertaining, DEFINETLY WORTH THE WATCH!!
Plus make sure that you watch season 1 and 2 before you watch this movie or you will get confused.
I'm glad this is finally on dvd/blu ray i'm so glad funimation got the rights to bring it back.
Disappearance was one of my favorite novels so it's nice to see it in picture. The film is after the series and has to do with the dreaded endless 8. I love this film and the animation/picture is great. It has a great story and I like seeing Kyon in the story because he really does care
The Final Piece of the Collection
by MR -
This will be more of a review of the product's contents since my opinions of the movie itself are more or less in line with others.
Upon opening the case I found four art cards that were never mentioned in the product description. A pleasant surprise, nonetheless. I'm not sure if the cards are random or the same inside each case. For the record, I had three cards that featured Yuki and one that had Yuki, Kyon, and Haruhi.
I can confirm that the cover is reversible to have consistency with the Ultimate Collector's Edition.
To my slight disappointment, none of the main menus of the Blu-ray, DVD, and Extras discs play Gymnopédie like the Bandai Entertainment DVD release years ago.
The Extras disc, with a total runtime of over two hours, seems to have all if not most of the content that was already included in the Bandai release. Special features have Japanese audio with English subtitles.
Haruhi fan movie
by KEVIN -
Haruhi fans rejoice, this movie has tons of back tracking nods to both seasons of the anime and the disappearance of Yuki Nagato. Plot: Haruhi’s disappeared from North High with nobody remembering her and Kyon must find out what’s going on. Stuck in a “normal” world he has to decide to stick with it, or change back to Haruhi running the show. If you’ve liked everything so far you’ll most likely like this one. Has more of a second season feel to the show, with a semi slow pace to the movie.
What We Needed Not Season 2
by Ana -
This is such a great movie especially for Kuon and Yuki as characters. Kuon kinda felt like the self insert character. While Yuki didn't have much of a personality at all. In the end maybe not much has change in terms of personality, but I least I know who they are better as characters. This movie kinda felt a deconstruction of the 2 characters and I loved every bit of it. It felt like this development would never have happen from the show episodic hijinks. Unless we talking about season 2 but let's pretend that never happened.
Also I'm not sure about just the DVD or just the Blu-Ray versions but the combo pack comes with 4 art cards. They are not as strong/thick or big as cards but little illustrations you can hang on the wall. 3 are of Yuki in boring poses but they still looks pretty aesthetically. The 4 one is the one I love. Its has Kuon, Yuki and Haruhi. Its hard to described the composition but I think its worth the combo pack at least if it was bigger that is.
A Great and a Good End the Series
by Bradley -
After watching the Haruhi Suzumiya series, I didn't know what to expect from the movie but I have to say it's one the best movies from an anime series I've seen recently. It's very engaging with great presentation and ends the overall "main" series very well (in my eyes).
Also if you're still interested in the series I recommend The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan anime which is a spin-off set in the same world as the movie and which I also enjoyed watching.

I was so happy that they decided to release this on blu-ray because I have been wanting this to complete my collection of the series. I love when they add a cover for the package it just makes it look better on my shelf and protects the case a bit. If you don't want to watch the Blu-Ray version this does come with the DVD disc as well which is great. The title screen of the film is so pretty when it pops up, I have the season of the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya on Blu-Ray and limited edition box sets of the series on DVD, and they always change up the title menu. The Blu-Ray version comes with the film and extra features that give you an amazing in-depth look at the making of the project, artwork, and behind the scenes footage. I appreciate Funimation for letting me complete my collection of the series.
The movie is a great buy, but funimation should have included it with the box set.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is a classic anime series that at one point i would say was a sort of right of passage for anime fans. You didn't need to watch it, you just had to know of it. When i first watched this movie i thought of all anime movies and assumed i'd be disappointed because it was something unimportant, but instead i got a story that fit well with the series, gave more character development to a few characters, and showed us a different alternative to how the series could have progressed. Out of most anime films i put this rather high up there with Steamboy and Castle in the sky, but i do recommend you watch the series first and skip most of the repeating summer episodes because they are kinda pointless. Overall a good use of my funds, but it was annoying how they had a box set for the series and its extra series and didn't include the movie deliberately to make more money so 4 stars.
