Comparing two seasons of Haruhi it’s obvious that the 2nd is an absolute collapse. It’s really sad. Animation and music are still great, but the story.. I guess I’m not the only one who was disappointed – we were waiting for something better. Much better.

Lots of identical episodes (more than a half of the season), and almost all the other episodes have the same story line. I accentuate only one single episode – the first one. It was pretty fun.

I do really think that ‘Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009)’ failed and It’s a great shame for Kyoto Animation. Such a pity, but I have to admit it.

P.S. This review's based not on 28 eps of two seasons, but only on 14 newest episodes.

3/10 story
10/10 animation
9/10 sound
4/10 characters
4.5/10 overall

I was getting ready to smash some heads after watching the fifth Endless Eight episode, but I stopped watching. I liked the originals way more.

Picked up Baka to Test to Shokanjuu, instead.

Not too sure how anyone or anything would think that people would enjoying watching repeated episodes over and over again with miniscule differences, but i agree with Wanginator; those episodes aside and this would most likely get a higher/decent score.

I enjoyed the very first episode, the first two episodes of the endless eight (since it was new content), and the last few episodes with the filming of the movie. If I rated it based on just those episodes minus all the repetitions, I'd certainly give it a high score.

How did somebody permited that 7 episodes were all the same with REALLY tiny differences?

I hated this. i was scanning the episodes to see if something was different, but watched the first 4 completelly! what a waste! I hope that the rest are somewhat better...

I completely agree. I also understand the review only covering the 14 newest episodes - the title says "2009" and those were the only new episodes in 2009. The original season/airing was spectacular. This was a huge flop.
