I'm finally downloading The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. There. Is everyone happy now? I can see what the big deal is.

Though these are ISOs... are these going to be the American sets? Does anyone know where I can find the Japanese subs, so I can see how it's "intended" to be seen?

Don't ask me, I watched it on youtube.

I watched the "first" episode and thought it was ridiculous, but that's just me... ^^' I didn't really see what was so great about it. If it turns out to be good, will you be posting anything on it?

I'll be posting regardless, but I do want the Japanese version that all the dedicated fans tell me that I'll need. The American version, from what I know, is fucked up because the episodes actually go in order.

I'll repeat that: the American version is fucked because the episodes actually go in order.

Let's just say my expectations are a bit tempered.

Yeah, that's honestly... really dumb if you ask me.

These ones here might be "in order," but there are A LOT of popups from there. Both Google and McAfee are telling me the site is safe, and I've never gotten anything from it before, but the popups make me leery. They're also on Megaupload, so... :\

I still have all the episodes on DVD (the fansubs). Let me go check something.

Yeah, you want this one:

That's all there is? 14 episodes?

They're selling big box sets, four of them, for FOURTEEN EPISODES?

YEP! They come with the character CDs though, which is reaaally a rare thing for Anime that comes to America.

And what's in these character CDs?

The Japanese voice actors singing songs.

The first episode, when going in the order they were intended to be seen, is a poor one to use when testing to see if you'll like it. You should stick it out to at least the "second" episode.

I personally didn't find much wrong with the dub, but I've only sampled a few episodes. That said, there's one episode that is supposed to be like a poorly-made student film (complete with cheezy effects and horrible acting), so don't be alarmed if you happen to run across that particular episode first.

That seems to have been episode 1. I'll give the others a chance, but... yikes.

If you don't mind me asking the obvious question, 'Bus, why on Earth are you bothering? This is one that even I won't touch, and I've seen some pretty craptacular stuff.

For the same reason a child puts his hand on a stove just to see if it's hot: to see what the big deal is.

With only 14 episodes, I shouldn't get burned too badly.

So far, the "first" episode (first Japanese one, anyway) is...

You strike me as the last person that would be into Haruhi; from the bits I've seen, it seems to appeal to children, hardcore otaku and closet paedophiles, and you're not hetero enough to be in group 3.

Since when do you need to be hetero to be a closet paedophile?

I've seen it (in order as well). It's merely "Okay". Don't see what the whole hype is about.
