Haruhi Suzumiya's Triumphant Return! Haruhi continues her search for exciting ways to keep her world from being boring. Unfortunately, for Kyon and the rest of the SOS Brigade, they are forced to go along for the ride. On the night of the Tanabata Star Festival, Kyon is transported back in time by Mikuru Asahina to what may be the source of what led Haruhi to search for aliens, time travelers, and espers. In the last two weeks of summer vacation, Haruhi leads the brigade on a dizzying list of summer time activities, eventually culminating in the brigade experiencing what they think is deja vu but they're actually re-living the same two weeks of summer over and over again. It's up to Kyon to figure out what's missing to get them out of their endless loop. As fall rolls around, everyone prepares for the school arts festival, but Haruhi isn't content with their class's survey project. Instead, she hatches her own plan for the SOS Brigade to film and screen their own movie. Step behind the camera to see what went on to create the cinematic "masterpiece" that is The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00!

A very likable series, one of Japans finest.

Contains Episodes 1-14
Audio: English/Japanese
Subtitles: English
Region: 2

This series is split up into two major story arcs, the first being the endless eight story and the second is the SOS Brigade movie making story.

Being a fan of English dubs I watched this first and can say it is quite good, all the original cast from the first series return to reprise their roles and put on a faultless performance.

The first story on this disc is quite fun, featuring a Time Traveling plot with Kyon and Mikuru going back in time, meeting a younger Haruhi and again an older Mikuru.

The second arc is the Endless Eight arc, reality is repeating itself and none of the characters realise it until too late. Their days repeatings 10s of thosands of times, they meet and discuss their situation but ultimately time loops again and again until they find out the reason.

The third arc is about Haruhi and her movie making idea as seen in Series 1 episode 0. The SOS brigade is now making a movie with little to no sense but they carry on anyway, the movie they are making is purely random with the lines and situations being made up by Haruhi on the spot. And of course reality starts to change.

Although the Endless Eight being 8 episodes is hard to watch in one sitting, I personally decided to take it 4 episodes per day, it made it watchable to me.

In general this series is a very good and a must have for Haruhi fans.

It also features a very catchy opening theme song.

When I see anyone mention The Melancholy or Haruhi Suzumiya Season 2, most of the time, they mention the 'Endless Eight' arc.

But before that, i'll start with the first episode of the second season.

Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody is a great start to the second season, which shows Kyon and Mikuru travel back 3 years in the past, where (for Kyon) we see the Elder Mikuru and an apprearance of younger Haruhi, along with my favourite character, Yuki Nagato, who plays a key role later in the episode. Two key elements from this episode plays an important role in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie.

Next, is the infamous Endless Eight arc.

Now, I don't blame some of the fans' frustrations over the arc since effectively watching the same episode 8 times can test the patience of anyone who watches all 8 episodes, but I might find myself in the minority that I enjoyed every single episode of the arc.

The arc shows a good understanding of Yuki and what she had to go through since she's the only character in the arc who remembers EVERY SINGLE loop that she and the others went through.

Certain fans, myself included, enjoyed seeing small differences in each of the 8 episodes, such as different clothing for the characters, camera angles, the different dialogue, reactions and expressions of the characters for certain scenarios. Finally, part 8 shows how Kyon eventually figures out what was missing from their summer experience and the main cause for their summer vacation to infinitely loop, for which the build up to his outburst at Haruhi in the cafe was the highight of the arc for me.

Overall, I found Endless Eight to be thoroughly enjoyable and not as dreadful as some fans and other reviewers claim it to be.

Actually, in some ways this series is better than the first season!

You build far more empathy with some of the characters, especially Yuki, who in the first series is cold now starts to come across as more vulnerable, and even a bit lonely, and Haruhi herself who in season 1 could come across as little more than a bully.

The big sticking point is the Endless Eight which, overall I loved, but it did go on a few episodes too long. Though it wouldn't have sounded as good the endless four or five would have been more bearable. It gives a far deeper understanding of Yuki, and you can feel the character start to change very slightly (which may or may not be relevant at some point in the future). The real tragedy of it using eight episodes though is that is stops them telling other stories in such a short series.

It all leads very well in to the movie (The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, which is excellent by the way!), here's hoping for a series 3 or another feature length movie.

Calling this a scond season in the story of Haruhi Suzumiya, and the SOS brigade, might be a little misleading. True the episodes are all as yet unseen events, but they take place over the same time period as the first series, giving detail, and expansion mainly to the making of the SOS brigade's movie for the North Highschool's cultural festival, but also to the history of Haruhi Suzumiya herself, in the superb first episode. This does give more insight into the relationships within the group, and we get to see more of the background characters, as they are roped in to help. There is also one of the most tense, and emotional scenes thus far in the story, between Kyon, and Haruhi, as tempers rise, (no more of a spoiler on that.)
I can't review this anime without making mention of the "elephant in the room," which is "endless eight." There has been much discussion of these episodes, by fans on various web-sites. The premiss is that, two weeks before the end of the summer break, Haruhi leads the brigade into making the most of their time by arranging a host of "fun" activities. During this helter-skelter ride, Kyon gets increasingly strong feelings of deja-vu, (once again, no spoilers.) The point is this storyline takes eight episodes of the anime, more or less repeating the same events. Some people think this is a little too much, maybe it could have been "frozen five," or "stasis six," but it is what it is. Others see it as a badge of honour to have watched all eight without fast forwarding, personally I have done so twice now. So there it is, and despite all that I think this is a great anime, "endless eight" being more than made up for by the other excellent, and I think, essential episodes.
