Kyon, your typical high school student, has long given up his belief in the supernatural. However, upon meeting Haruhi Suzumiya, he quickly finds out that it is the supernatural that she is interested in—aliens, time travelers, and espers among other things. When Haruhi laments about the lack of intriguing clubs around school, Kyon inspires Haruhi to form her own club. As a result, the SOS Brigade is formed, a club which specializes in all that is the supernatural. Much to his chagrin, Kyon, along with the silent bookworm, Yuki Nagato, the shy and timid Mikuru Asahina, and the perpetually smiling Itsuki Koizumi, are recruited as members. The story follows the crazy adventures that these four endure under their whimsical leader, Haruhi. The story is based on the light novels by Nagaru Tanigawa.

Make sure to consult a chart online so that you watch this series in the right order. Haruhi will make sure your days are exciting!


Awesome show with great characters and an amazing dance I’m sure you have heard of by now! Each character feels dynamic throughout as well!


A lovely parody on slice of life’s. I’d say you have to watch a couple school related anime’s before watching this one to enjoy it.


Changing the watch order didn’t make this any less unremarkable. Only worth sitting through for Disappearance.


Anime: The Anime.


Strangely satisfying mix of comedy, adventure, and slice of life that never completely makes sense. Overall, a lot of fun!


This started a whole new generation of a new school genre. Also we got one hell of a catchy dance to go with it too
