Haruhi forces Mikuru to wear her movie costumes out in public as they begin shooting.
Although this episode arc still hasnâ€™t done anything too drastic, no Haruhi absolutely flipping out or even apparently using any of her powers to affect things, Iâ€™m still finding it fun to watch. I was kind of expecting they would have some more serious moments left with the few episodes remaining, having Haruhiâ€™s powers actually affect something. Generally it seems like some of the bigger moments have something to do with her but so far, although fun, the process of making the movie seems to have very little to do with Haruhi having these abilities or this influence and much more about her simply being kind of wild and not taking â€œnoâ€ for an answer. I really hope they have something like that in the remaining episodes. Even if it doesnâ€™t necessarily involve the arc of making the movie, if itâ€™s one or two episodes after that, I still think it would be good.
Now, as I said, even though this episode arc doesn’t have any serious things going on, itâ€™s still very fun to watch. I just loved Mikuruâ€™s reaction to having to wear the costumes and the fact that Haruhi didnâ€™t see any reason why she shouldnâ€™t go out in public like that. I feel so sorry for Mikuru sometimes, but itâ€™s very fun to watch when that feeling appears. What Iâ€™m hoping above all else for this story arc now, not necessarily Haruhiâ€™s powers affecting something, but simply us seeing enough new things. It would be different if we didnâ€™t see how this movie turned out or something, but we do so for these episodes to really matter it needs to show us some of the behind the scenes stuff that we donâ€™t know about.
