    Review & Brief Synopsis:

    This anime is my favorite! I found it funny, somewhat thought provoking at times and refreshingly different, in a fun way, than the other anime series I have watched. The cast is also super enjoyable. I find it unusual that B&N does'nt offer more of a plot line so here is a brief synopsis for those who are interested:
    While growing up, Kyon dreamed of having exciting experiences with an alien, time traveler, psychic, or other super-powered individual, but set those dreams aside in favor of maturity as he aged. When he enters high school, though, his world gets turned upside-down by the girl behind him in homeroom, who introduces herself as Haruhi Suzumiya and declares that she isn't interested in normal people, only "aliens, time travelers, espers, or sliders." Despite her unsettling reputation, Kyon decides to strike up a conversation with Haruhi anyway (she is beautiful, after all), which results in him getting dragged into her effort to initiate a new school club, called the SOS Brigade, which will be dedicated to finding said aliens, time travelers, and psychics and hanging out with them. Three other individuals - Yuki Nagato, the sole Literary Club member; Mikuru Asahira, a very moe upperclassman/mascot; and "mysterious transfer student" Itsuki Koizumi - also get dragged into Haruhi's weird and occasionally provocative schemes with varying degrees of willingness. What Haruhi doesn't know, but Kyon eventually finds out, is that she has unwittingly surrounded herself with precisely the kind of people she was looking for, and they are all there to watch her since she subconsciously has the power of a god. A melancholy day for Haruhi, it seems, could spell the literal end of reality as Kyon knows it.
