I just started watching Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
Now, Iâ€™m not a big anime fan. In fact, I donâ€™t like a lot of it. In my opinion, itâ€™s the characters that make any story great and so much anime seems to feature the old character archetypes. This series caught me completely by surprise, itâ€™s was just a breath of fresh air. The first Episode was a bit misleading, I thought the series would be parody. Episode two really made me fall in love with the show. The main character for one isnâ€™t your typical indecisive spineless fool or â€œbadassâ€ I know everything character. He isnâ€™t exactly in the middle either. He is cynical, he ask questions and despite what other (and probably himself) think, he is quiet intelligent too. His role as a medium between the story and the audience is amazing, itâ€™s something Iâ€™ve never seen before. The rest of the cast, They are introduced as your typical cliche characters... Itâ€™s such a joy to watch their real personalities unravel.
A beautiful anime, so far itâ€™s the best Iâ€™ve ever seen.
