5.0 out of 5 stars Great spin-off, February 11, 2011

This review is from: Melancholy of Haruhi-Chan Suzumiya & Nyoron 2 (DVD)
Haruhi Suzumiya fans rejoice she is back looking better than ever with her new chibi "look" and more nonsense stories coming from the S.O.S gang. The show was animated by Kyoto Animation also known as KyoAni the same company responsible for the original series back in 2006, Lucky Star, Clannad, K-on! and fan-favorite Kanon. As a fan of the original series (2006) I have to say for the final product of what Haruhi Suzumiya turn out there were many disappointing moments in the show and is up until today that I can't understand why the first season has so much fame, I blame its ending theme for the fame, but I doubt its fans noticed the subliminal messages about puberty, loneliness and friendship along with the nonlinear and chronological order of the broadcast plus the skepiaring and convoluted narrative really were destroying the show for me, but overall was entertaining enough at that time.

The Melancholy of Haruhi-CHAN is however all what fans were expecting from the second season, it's simple, it's a fast-paced-comedy combined tons of that fine and clever humor from Japan and best of all no convoluted narrative.

CONS
- Chibi-Moe look may not be appealing to everybody.
- Episodes are not long enough.
- DVD features are just TV commercials and anime trailers.
- The intro animation only appears in episodes 1 and 14, as short as this series is I was expecting to see the INTRO in each episode.
PROS
- Episodes are not long enough but they have more laughs than season 1 and 2.
- Fast-paced-comedy.
- The animation is the same style as Lucky Star, fluent and colorful.
- New chibi character design.
- English and Japanese versions are topnotch.
- Ryoko Asakura.
- Way better than season 2.

If you are an anime fan into comedies and want to have a good time, or a Haruhi fan so disappointed of season 2 because it was just repetitive, dull and without any morals to give, then this IS "THE" Haruhi you were waiting.

You should check out the movie, it almost justifies sitting through season 2.
