Haruhi-chan Now Online For Real

Haruhi-chan and Tsuruya-san are online!

Yes, you can now catch the REAL Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yuuutsu on YouTube-- I promise! It's not embeddable, unfortunately, but there is an official copy with English subtitles. Score!


Having watched it through myself...I'm a little disappointed with the video quality, although maybe my expectations were a little high for YouTube. That said, it's a cute little story about Kyon dreaming, albeit mildly inaccessible outside of Japanese culture-- here's the scoop:


In Japan there's this tradition that your first dream in a new year will tell you about the year you're going to have. Certain symbols that appear in dreams mean good or bad things for your year. The ideal New Years dream is about a feast of eggplant and an eagle flying over Mount Fuji-- the three luckiest symbols in a dream.


Armed with that knowledge, go forth and watch the ep! It's freeeee!


(I want to note, by the way, that Kadokawa is totally not forgiven for that BS they pulled yesterday. But this IS a cute video.)


Also, don't forget about Nyoro~n Tsuruya-san, which is also up and English-subbed and adorable!

@Haruhi-chan: Pretty fun. Cute too. Worth 5 minutes.

@Nyoron Churuya-san: What the hell did I just watch?

EDIT: Oh, and here's the full OP to Haruhi-chan (I think)

I wonder, if the reissues, are made to include the haruhi-chan shorts? I guess that would be the best excuse I could use for them and hopefully season 2 is on its way soon after.

I liked the Haruhi-chan thing. Bloody cute.

I wasn't really feeling the smoked cheese stuff... I've seen the 4koma before and it just seemed off to me.

Lol the first one was funny...

As for the second one...WTF was that!?
