Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)

Year: 2006
Studio: Kyoto Animation
Total anime episodes: 14

In the first day at North High School, Haruhi has announced in the class introduction that she is not interested in ordinary peoples. She only wants to make friends with aliens, time travellers, espers or something like that.

Haruhi is a weird girl that obsessed to anything that are not normal, like alien and magical power. Because of her attitude, Haruhi didn’t had many friends until one day when her classmate, Kyon who sit in front of her has tried to talk to her and make friendship with her. With unknown reasons, Haruhi has accepted Kyon as her friend although he looks like a very normal person.

The idea to launch S.O.S Brigade was made when Kyon gave his suggestion that Haruhi can join any club activity like other students. S.O.S means “Sekai wo Ooni moriagerutame no Suzumiya Haruhi no dan” or “Save The World By Overloading It With Fun: Haruhi Suzumiya’ Brigade”. After the S.O.S club was established, Haruhi became more active to find new club’s members. Then, Kyon, Mikuru, Yuki and Itsuki were invited / forced to become members.

Actually, the first episode with title ‘The Adventure of Asahina Mikuru – Episode 00’ is the amateur video that was produced by S.O.S Brigade for the North High School Cultural Festival. Haruhi was clearly satisfied with the video but Kyon didn’t agree with her. In the later episode, each character will be introduced with their true identities so that the audiences will know why they were existed in Haruhi’s world.
