The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Mar 19, 2010

The story is not bad. The animation, the music, the dances, they are all professionally done. However, there are other, more important (to me) aspects of the series that annoy me so much, I can never watch more than an episode in one sitting. The clichés and the characterizations. ALL the characters are very, very annoying in my opinion. It is true that the fact that none of the characters are perfect should be a positive, but in this case, the typical anime clichés are so overflowing, it ruins the whole series for me.

What I really admire about this anime is how well it captures the original feel of the manga. The music in it - all that French - makes it mysterious and romantic, but lethargic at the same time. The opening and ending songs are both catchy, romantic and somewhat sad - perfect for this story.The colors are dull, making the whole series seem like a dreamland - just like it should be.
