Whether be it time traveling, loli maids, giant crickets, or saving the world from drooling blue giants, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya’s got it all for you right here. And now, (after years and years of Haruhi-less suffering) the long-awaited first episode of the second season is finally out. The episode opens with Kyon’s commentary, complaining about anything and everything that crosses his mind. His complain-o-rama streak is cut short by a series of pokes from Haruhi behind him. It turns out that the day is July 7th, or Tanabata, a Japanese holiday that Haruhi is particularly enthusiastic about, much to Kyon’s dismay.
