The Story was absolute TOSH. A 'Special girl?' She was just imensely strange.
The Animation was Good though. Not anything ahead of it's game. Anime was fairly HQ at the time of release though.
The Music. What can I say? Aya hirano was Utterly great in all the songs :) the English Dub Artist did alright aswell.
Characters? Haruhi Was a bit Tipsy and Kyon was a bit Too Boring. Yuki Was an Alien and Itsuki was Just there! He didn't ever dissagree or anything! He just smiled and looked pretty! Bassically All 4 were at different corners of the room.
Overall This Anime came across as completely Average. it's deems itslef quite high in peoples 'watched' list because The Dance(End Sequence) Gives it too Much Publicity. I did enjoy this Anime at a modest level but If you're looking For a shoujo Anime(One to be a fan of, I mean this was a 'watch and forget about' anime) ...Go for something else. and series two? Bassically the same tosh.
