found this on my local board, thought it was funny
dont even know the name of the anime lolol
The anime is "Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu", or more commonly known as "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya". It was the breakout hit of last year in Japan, and it quickly gathered a massive fanbase.
I've watched it, and it's awesome.
That anime looks interesting, watching the 1st episode on Youtube now, searching on wiki says the US DVD of the series will be released at the end of May, 2007.
I'll have to remind myself to check it out, looks good so far.
Yeah, I had the whole series on my computer a while back but once I saw an official release was coming out figured I'd wait for that. And the Transformers posing like an anime is pretty funny. I've got to see a pic of two primes shaking hands in front of Mt. Fuji. Classic.
You're crazy KA.
Funny idea, great execution!
Yeah, I've still got the whole series on my harddrive. I'm hesitating to burn it off due to the upcoming NA release, but at the same time, I'm a bit apprehensive about how they're going to handle the localization, specifically for episode 12. That's going to be the real clincher as to whether paying for that extra audio track will be worth my money.
Bandai recently announced the English voice cast:
Haruhi - Wendee Lee (Faye Valentine - Cowboy Bebop, Young T.K - Digimon, lots of other videogame and anime work)
Mikuru - Stephanie Sheh (Hinata Hyuga - Naruto)
Yuki - Michelle Ruff (Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach)
Kyon - Crispin Freeman (Arucard - Hellsing, Togusa - Ghost in the Shell: SAC, Amon - Witch Hunter Robin)
Itsuki - Johnny Yong Bosch (Vash the Stampede - Trigun, Renton Thurston - Eureka Seven, Ichigo Kurosaki - Bleach)
The real crux is whether Wendee Lee has the vocal and emotional range to pull off Haruhi convincingly (not to mention, whether or not she has a
). Everyone else I can play out in my mind, and it all fits reasonably well.
Try it with Gen 1 figures.
Thanks KA, I am now on episode 7 of this on youtube and I love it.
There are two different ways to watch this series as I understand it, I am watching them in chronological order, which is not broadcast order, but yeah I definately want this on DVD now.
This turned into the perfect motivation to take a day off sick and stay home and watch anime marathon style.
Again KA, thanks for starting this inspirational thread.
Haha that's awesome
Aw, you ruined it. It was aired out of order on purpose. Chronological is good for the rewatch, but the scrambled episode order was intentional, to give that much more punch to the big dramatic turn of events.
And this is what happens when you take it to the extreme.
Gotta love Busou Shinki figures.
Oh dear god
None of my TFs have tentacles or skirts, so I can't play.
That's really good and cute
A part of me believes that this is how Kiss Play came into being.
