Suzumiya Haruhi II – 03 (2009 – 13)

Kyon finds himself in an endless time loop repeating the last two weeks as Haruhi is unsatisfied with her summer experience.

Impressions:

Although I knew the plot of this arc going into it I still thought it was very interesting. Although it’s not like it hasn’t been done before, this is of course very similar to Groundhog’s Day but with its own twists of course. Still, although a time loop premise isn’t new it can still be unique to this show depending on what it takes to get them out of it and how much memory they retain. Yuki knows it all, but will Kyon and the others still retain some after the reset? They didn’t’ really before but maybe Yuki saying something to them will change this. Whatever it is, I think it will be interesting to see what it turns out that Haruhi wants out of summer.

I do have to say I was absolutely floored when I heard that it had been going on for over 15 thousand times. I thought it would be only a couple. I thought Kyon would have a better memory of all of it so it would only repeat a few times, but my god…15 thousand times. It must have just been absolute hell for Yuki. Doing the same thing over and over again for over 500 years. It’s…wow. I know she’s not human and everything but she still obviously felt boredom and seemed depressed. I feel sorry for her, even for her that seems excessive.
