May I try some of your tasty beverage? After a couple of weeks of repeats we finally get a new episode of Haruhi V2.0, although it had little to do with plot advancement in a significant way. In the most widely circulated guess as to the order of airing of new episodes, it looks like the next couple of weeks should be new as well, but nothing has been made official.
Whenever I see pools like that I always think “how many little kids are peeing in that?” Needless to say I don’t go to public pools, I am strictly a private pool guy.
This is pretty much exactly what I look like when people wake me up in the morning with a phone call.
The alien mask, how appropriate. And I think this was unfortunately Yuki’s only spoken line the entire episode. I was quite disappointed at the lack of any major Yuki content this episode. However, as someone who has read the novels, I can say that the future bodes well for those of us who enjoy Yuki.
He should have asked for a reroll.
Bug catching? Seriously, that’s disgusting.
Wow, that’s pretty fucked up. Making them work in those retarded outfits all day in the summer just so she can nab a frog outfit. All while she hung out eating popsicles.
What I did find interesting about this episode is that the raw amount of “fun” activities they shoved into one episode gave me some perspective on what anime portrays as activities young Japanese people enjoy. I have know way of knowing how much of this is true in real life as entertainment mediums often do not reflect reality. But when I was in high school I would have found most of what they did incredibly boring and/or a stupid waste of my time. But then again I was a nerd, and I’d have rather gone to a LAN party or stayed home and played CS…
The episode was alright, but I’ve seen random slice of life stuff in tens of other shows although it was actually one of the top generic slice of life episodes I’ve seen. However, the reason I watch this show is for the other, stranger aspects of it all. I know most of this stuff was in the books, but that doesn’t necessarily make it amazingly interesting. Although it sure did look really nice, KyoAni definitely knows how to make quality animation.
