So I was looking to re-read a little Haruhi Suzumiya, so I could finish an old 'fic. (I always make a point of re-reading the source material, just to make sure I get something right.)

Much to my dismay, I find out that the translations for the light novel have been taken down, since it's now been licensed... Boo. (Not that I'm not grateful that it's been licensed, but it's still a minor annoyance.)

So instead, I decide to do some Googling on Haruhi; it's been a while since I've done so, after all... I then find out that the "Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya" (my favourite storyline in the series), was made into a movie several months ago.



This almost makes up for the somewhat half-assed second season... Almost. (Eight episodes of which were the same episode over and over, argh...)

Now, I'm not surprised that they made the Disappearance storyline into a movie; the suspense in the storyline is really well-done, IMO (and for the love of god, do not spoil yourself, if you're a fan of the series!)

Needless to say, I so want to see this now. >.< But all I can find is a subbed camera-rip (which would probably give me motion sickness); not to mention the translated DVD isn't out till December. Gah.

*fidgets impatiently*

I know the storyline is called Endless Eight for a reason, but going for a fourth episode of repetition is getting ridiculous. >.< (Although, I'm beginning to understand why Yuki kind of rebels later in the series...)

Seriously, this story arc could've been resolved in 2 or 3 episodes! (The animation studio really likes screwing with the fans...)

Cut for spoilers )

At any rate, they better finish this arc in the next episode (so we can get to the Snowy Mountain arc, if not the Disappearance one, I don't care, just end it already XP)...

Wow, they got that new subbed episode up fast. O_o Didn't they just air it in Japan yesterday?

The new opening theme is pretty cute. And the accurate English sound effects (tap, stomp, etc.) amuse me greatly, for some reason. XD

This ep's storyline isn't my favourite from the series, but I shan't complain; it does have gratuitous Kyon and Itsuki in swim trunks. ;) They did end this storyline abruptly, though; I wonder if they plan on continuing it in the next ep? (And just a few more episodes to Disappearance, I can't wait!)

In other news, I really need to finish that Sain 'fic I've been working on all week. >_> I really need to stop distracting myself...

What are you wearing, Itsuki? You're going to trip over that skirt! At least Kyon is dressed in sexy sensible armour. (Why yes, I am a sucker for knights in armour, how did you guess? ;P) Haruhi's outfit is pretty ridiculous too... (Perplexity is right!)

In other news... Golden Sun for the DS. Professor Layton 2. Not to mention Gyakuten Kenji and the Pokemon Gold/Silver remakes... It's going to be a good year for the Nintendo DS. :D

Finally got to see the first episode of the new season of Haruhi Suzumiya! :D Looks like they're starting with the Tanabata storyline, although I've heard they're airing the new episodes interspersed with the old eps, corresponding with their original order in the light novels. I've also heard they're airing the Disappearance arc starting today, yay!

Mild spoilers for the episode, and speculation )

In other news, was out of town most of last week; was visiting family in SC. Got a bunch of DVDs that I might want to talk about later; also would like to do some writing, but we'll see...

Curse you Manna for tagging me for a meme! *shakes fist* (Means I actually have to update for once. ;)

Sometimes it's okay to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

And I guess I'll tag some of the new people on my friends list, too: [livejournal.com profile] myaru, [livejournal.com profile] qieru, [livejournal.com profile] ryuuie

In which Avi pimps her stuff )

In other news, it sounds like the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is finally airing in Japan. <3 (Been looking forward to the anime version of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya for a long time now...)
