92% Outstanding

This anime is one of the masterpieces, but some of you may have never seen it in 2009 because the character design is old. However, masterpieces are still masterpieces, and the value of masterpieces is not reduced even if the designs and drawings are old.

Not to mention very unique stories and world views, characters, and the highest level of drawing, OP songs, ED songs, and insert songs are also amazing. It is a masterpiece anime that people who are shy away from just because of old works should definitely watch it.

2. Synopsis

Kyon has found himself dragged through many adventures as of late—all because of the SOS Brigade club and its excitable leader, Haruhi Suzumiya. He has stopped believing in the supernatural long ago, but after being forced to join this club based solely on that, he has seen things that cannot be explained logically. 

Joining Kyon on his various misadventures is the shy and soft-spoken Mikuru Asahina, the bookish Yuki Nagato, and the ever-cheerful Itsuki Koizumi. Whether it is summer vacation or a school festival, things involving their club and Haruhi herself always end up becoming strange.

3. Intermediate can Learn Japanese with This Anime

In general, anime with a large variety of terms and lines of speech. And terms and lines are difficult. Furthermore, honorifics and difficulty are quite high. There are various characters, but speaking is normal. However, the honorific level is quite high. In particular, Koizumi’s honorific is not at the student level. Kyon’s dialogue, which accounts for half of the conversation, is also very varied and difficult to say. As for Nagato and Mikuru, it is difficult for the Japanese to understand because the content they speak is too difficult. Fortunately, the number of difficult words is not very high. If you are a Japanese language learner who has read Japanese light novels, you can try listening to Japanese with this anime.
