About The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Seasons 1 and 2 Blu-ray

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya contains episodes 1-28 of the anime directed by Tatsuya Ishihara.

Kyon is a cynical and sarcastic teenager. The first day of his first year of high school is filled with hopes of a normal school experience hopes that are immediately dashed after meeting the beautiful and eccentric Haruhi Suzumiya. Haruhi is athletic, brilliant, and completely bored with life. At Kyon's accidental suggestion, she decides to create her own club dedicated to finding and observing life's oddities like the aliens, espers, and time travelers she believes walk among normal people. Now, Kyon and a ragtag group of recruits are Haruhi's right-hand men in the newly formed SOS Brigade. But all is not what it seems. The quiet bookworm? Alien. The busty sophomore? Time-traveler. The handsome transfer student? ESPer. And the biggest surprise? They're all there because Haruhi herself has the ability to reshape the world as she sees fit. Maybe Kyon should have joined the literature club.

I really enjoy the story so far, it's funny with likable/relatable characters, also a very interesting story! I can't wait to see what happens next!

5 star rating out of 5

Great show

by -

I was not sure what I would be getting into besides having heard great things about the show. I started watching it and got hooked immediately, All the characters have weird personality's but very likable. Both seasons are very well written and have a great story line and make you think more than the average show. My main complaint is season 2 has 5-7 episodes that were pretty unnecessary.

4 star rating out of 5

Great release, terrible upscale

by -

The show itself is legendary, so this is a review of the product itself.
The packaging is very nice. The slipcover is attractive and sturdy, and the case itself feels nice. The discs are nicely printed and list which episodes are on each. The insert is reversible as well, which I really appreciated.
The video quality is highly variable, however. Season 1 was produced in 480p, so those episodes are upscaled on this release. The upscale seems to be the same one from the Japanese blu-ray, so it isn't Funimation's fault, but it's pretty ugly overall. They've applied a smeary-looking filter over the image, making many shots look overly blurry and devoid of detail. I'd recommend either switching your display to 480p for season 1, which helps somewhat, or tracking down the DVDS, which really should have been included in this release anyway.
Overall, I highly recommend this set. It only loses a star for not including season 1 in native SD.

the endless 8 makes it unwatchable


this anime had a single episode repeated 8 times with very small changes throughout, so frustrating

Absolute classic

by -

This series is in short a classic. it is so influential and to this day is still celebrated. It is an important piece of anime history and you would be doing yourself a favor by taking part in this history

"It's everything you could want in a show."


This is the best show I have ever seen.

Art is subjective.

Many people have varying tastes.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is a story that messes with every expectation you have for an anime story and still does it quite well almost two decades later. The main character Kyon starts the story as an entertaining overly verbose goof that I think most will like. Over the series of a few weeks and months his life gets flipped turned upside down and becomes a lot more interesting. The animation is good especially the second season which is on par for anime more than decade later. The voice acting and direction are great in both sub and dub and the writing is entertaining and thought provoking. Lots of metatextual and philosophical goodness to be found.
