Episode 57 - The Haruhi Suzumiya Episode Featuring Jammer

I honestly wanted to do this episode as organized as possible. This is how a mistake turned into an idea which turned into a 2 hour long discussion about Haruhi Suzumiya. For this episode, I bring over Jammer from his AniMovie Blog...cast. I swear this guy combines words for noreason. Since I have been on almost every anime related episode he has done, I figured it would be appropriate for him to do a guest spot over here and talk about the subject of his first episode. Without his fire flowers, he now steps into the ass backwards realm. Hear how well he survives.

(1:47 - 9:28) Discussion (The Second Season)

That's Jammer by the way.

(9:29 - 25:39) Discussion (Where To Start?)

It's to you how you are going to watch this one. You may have to check online for the different orders.

(25:40 - 29:14) Discussion (Chibi Time)

The Haruhi-chan series is very fun to watch. They aired around the time when the second season started. This discussion will bleed over to the next one.

(29:15 - 29:55) Intro

I make fun of his show now, but it is really good listen. Chances are I am going to appear in a bunch more episodes. We may have something else planned for the future. Stay tuned.

(29:56 - 34:25) Discussion (The Ultimate Narrator)

Though I didn't get a chance to say it, Crispin Freeman does a good job as Kyon. Yes, I have a bit of a bias towards the Japanese actor. Not that I didn't mind the dub, but I guess I just wasn't expecting to hear his voice when I saw it. Haruhi was hit or miss with me. Try it out for yourself.

(34:26 - 40:39) Discussion (She Rocked My Socks)

I have managed to get a few of Hirano Aya albums and most of them have a good sound. Here is an interesting example of her singing.



Yeah, her range is pretty amazing. Here is a bit of normal voice with a interesting surprise.



This is her recent single, Speed Star. There is a lot of running.



(40:40 - 43:50) Discussion (Season Two...Again)

I can't really say much else about this season. Obviously, the elephant in the room is the whole Endless Eight debacle. I think all the talking points have been said and plenty of videos of people complaining about it. I hate having all the negative vibe on the show so I would rather not discuss it. Someone decided to use their time to make it easier on everyone who wants to watch those episodes. This is only part one. I am sure you can find the rest by yourselves.



(43:51 - 1:17:16) Discussion (The Story)

This is the biggest segment of the episode. I know I should have brought this up earlier. I didn't really expect to have the topic go all over the place on this episode. My plan was to have this as straight forward and organized as possible. I am sure I could rearrange it make it flow well, but that it is not worth the trouble. I don't think I have as much time to do crazy stuff for my episodes. Maybe in the future I will start experimenting a lot more. For now, you are going to have to deal with what we give you.

(1:17:17 - 1:32:39) Discussion (Not The ASOS Brigade)

Since the discussion lead to something else, I might as well explain what the ASOS Brigade is. This is Bandai's idea of marketing Haruhi here in the States. Here is a clip of the first episode.



I think you are starting to get the idea. The whole thing came from a site that released videos with information on how the series was going to be coming out in America. They are doing it again now to promote the second season. I hope it turns out well for them. I would actually like to see more crazy ways that companies could do to promote their series. I guess Haruhi is the only show crazy enough show for them to bank on.

(1:32:40 - 1:48:22) Discussion (Smoked Cheese)



(1:48:22 - 1:55:52) Closing

Oh right. The movie.
