Anyone here ever seen The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya? I downloaded the whole show but I've only watched the first few episodes so far. It's really weird and the episodes are like out of order, not just in the torrent but even when it says "on the next episode blah blah blah" it shows the wrong episode. Sorry if anyone already posted this but I didn't feel like reading through seven pages again. :P Anyway if someone could tell me if this was good please let me know.

Yeah, I've seen it and I love it:

My three favorite anime (at the moment) are

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - This is just so zany yet powerful. It's as confusing as hell and is utterly random but when everything comes together you are left in awe at the brilliance of it, being adapted from a proper published series of books. It hasn't been released in the West yet but it's already earned a huge following.

Whichever order you watch it in it's amazing, so I implore that you watch the rest of the series ASAP. You won't regret it.

There's two ways to watch it: One is just watching the series through as given. And the other is in chronological order. So what happens is that ep 1 is actually 6 (I think) chronologically, 2 is 1 and the way through to the last ep 14 which is 6 chronologically (in this order you see the big finale not even half way through ;)). They're all adapted from a light novel series, but the anime places stories from later novels in between the main story (of the first novel). This is why Haruhi's announcements at the end of the episode is different (except for one episode :P) from Kyon's - they aren't random, it's telling you how to watch it in a different order.

Anyway, showing my fanboiism here. Go watch :P


+: Oh, and I haven't a clue what that anime/whatever is Freak. Sorry.

That name reminds me of a series involving a guitar. Am I on the right track?

Someone urged me to watch the first ep of something called Sola. A quick search brought me to a site with a less-than-stellar explanation, and considering what the fans of it also watched... let's just say I wasn't impressed. Especially when I found out the writer also did Kanon.

Turns out it's not half bad. So far.

Quote from: animenewsnetwork.com
Plot Summary: Yorito Morimiya loves taking pictures of the sky so much that one day, he wakes up at 4 am to take pictures of the sunrise overlooking the bay. However, he is deterred when he meets a strange girl trying to force a vending machine that stole her money. Yorito helps her with forcing the machine but when the machine finally vends, the girl has mysteriouslly vanished.

Ooooookay. Intriguing.

Er.... no, it had nothing to do with guitars at all. You can check it out here (they don't have all of them, but you can find them with a quick search around youtube, should be 24)

Its basically about a japanese businessman that gets captured by pirates (modern, not the 'yo ho ho' kind  :P) on a business trip in the southeast, but through a number of events in the first few episodes, he ends up joining them. A good series for those that are huge action buffs (which I'm sure most of us are  :) )
