Hey Guys! 
After watching and really enjoying Angel Beats! and hearing that The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is made by the same guys I thought I'll give it a try. I have once
 I'm a firing my laser!
 I'm a firing my laser!
before but well the home movie they made for the first episode kinda put me off. Even still now I haven't managed to watch it all. It's way too cheesy although Mikuru's laser firing skills made me smile. 
Anyways aside from that I did rather enjoy the series as a whole and quite like putting the story together. It's a bit like a jigsaw puzzle. They give you all the pieces in a random order and you have to slowly put it together. Which I thought made it very unique and helps it stand out from the crowd although I don't think it was as great as people made out it to be. Yes the jigsaw idea was neat, the animation was good and the musical score was pretty good as well but I felt the story was a bit lacking.
The whole idea of Haruhi being a bored Goddess but not knowing it was cool but I felt they could've done a lot more with it. 
The power she welds is only glimpsed at and just when things start to heat up the series was ended. All in all the ending felt rather anti climatic especially compared to Angel Beats! Plus we seem to learn hardly anything about the characters backgrounds. Every time you thought 'yes finally were gonna learn about a character!' turns out that information is 'classified'. This meant I found it hard to truly relate to any of the characters bar Kyon (Although now I come to think of it that may have meant to be the case).   
Although I did really like Kyon. He made me laugh on a number of occasions just because how he reacts to Haruhi's mad capped ideas.
Maybe if I watch ' The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya' it'll help fill in some of the blanks for me. Although I heard thats just a re telling of the original story with another arc on the end that over stays it's welcome *EDIT* Sorry I got confused with the release of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and the title above = P
Anyways I feel like I'm going to be totally hated now for writing probably not the most positive post about one of the most loved anime series out there! I just hope they can see my point before they start throwing stones at me X D 
Anyways till next time!
