One cold Christmas day, Kyon heads over to school and the SOS Brigade's holiday celebration, only to realize that Haruhi Suzumiya seems to have disappeared. Moreover, no one even remembers her or the SOS Brigade; Mikuru Asahina knows nothing and is now afraid of him, and Itsuki Koizumi has also gone missing. The Literature Club, formed only by an uncharacteristically shy Yuki Nagato, now occupies the old SOS club room. Suzumiya Haruhi no Shoushitsu is based on the fourth light novel of the acclaimed Haruhi series and is set after the events of the anime series. Not uncultured in the supernatural, Kyon will have to deal with his whole life turned upside down like a bad joke, and maybe it's better that way.

A great movie sequel that gives an immense payoff after watching the series. The best part of the haruhi franchise in my opinion.


Much better than the TV series and worth sitting through for it.


Fantastic visuals. Incredibly muted but charming atmosphere. Slow, deliberate pacing. Serene OST. Well-executed and far exceeds the TV show.


Does things way better than the melancholy. And it brings something that the original anime could never do, and that’s human drama.


Great movie and great continuation of the series.


One of my favorite movies of all time, anime or otherwise. Oscar for Kyon’s inner dialogue when he’s choosing towards the end, おねがい


A franchise film that somehow went the extra step to become one of the best anime films of all time. Props to the English voice cast as well
