    Synopsis


    The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
    This full length anime film based on the Haruhi Suzumiya franchise takes place ten days before Christmas, when a party in the club room leads to a shift in reality. Kyon wakes up the next day to a universe in which Haruhi doesn't exist. Nobody knows who she is, and only Kyon remembers her. Soon, he finds that he has his work cut out for him, trying to discover how the center of the entire universe can simply disappear. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

      Excellent follow-up to the TV series

      The premise of this movie follows the general theme of the Haruhi Suzumiya TV series (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya): what happens when the school's most unusual girl has reality-altering power? The issue here is she essentially wishes the events of the TV series never happened and it's up to the leading male character to set things straight. To really get into this film, it would probably be best for the new viewer to watch the TV series first. That will introduce not only the main characters but the important supporting characters as well as the subplots and main events the title character unknowingly wiped out in the movie! They're really a bizarre bunch of characters and for a while this show was all the rage -- about a decade back. Like the Suzumiya TV series, this movie was previously released by Bandai but unlike the TV series it was neverly widely distributed through stores or sold at Best Buy. The previous Blu ray release seemed to be in print for one day and then then turn up online for ridiculous prices on the used and secondary markets. Funimation has licensed-rescued this movie was well as other movies (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) for a new generation of fans to enjoy as well as older fans who missed out on these films the last time.

      Good movie but on the expensive side

      This movie was very different from the previous Haruhi Suzumiya videos. It was much more serious and more of a mystery than earlier videos. Although the story started a little slow, it drew me in and became quite engrossing. Definitely a good story that I will be able to watch multiple times. However, the movie references a lot of the previous videos, and those should be viewed first. Otherwise, parts of this movie will be difficult to understand. The price ($25) was kind of high for an older title like this. Finally, it was a little annoying to be forced to watch a preview for another movie (fast forward and menu functions locked out) before being able to go to the options menu and view the movie.

      Great Companion Film to the Main Series

      The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya is a very rewarding film for lovers of the main series anime "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya." Some understanding of the plots of seasons 1 and 2 are necessary to watch this film since it is essentially a feature-length episode adapting the fourth "Haruhi Suzumiya" light novel and includes references to previous episodes. The film admirably builds on the themes and storylines of the TV series. The plot is tight and well-paced and the animation even exceeds the already well-done caliber of "The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya." This very well could be considered one of the best anime films based on a TV series from the last twenty years.

      I would rate this movie a solid 8/10. However, it was a bit confusing since I did not watch the anime series. First and foremost, this movie is indeed a sequel to both of the previous two seasons of Haruhi. Watching this movie without seeing both seasons is not suggested. For those who have seen both seasons, I suggest first taking time to remember some plot details and characters.

      If you haven't watched The Melancholy of Harui Suzumia, then don't look at this movie. (Or buy them both!) If you have, you'll find a movie that continues the story line, and adds more depth to the story you already know. Recommended!

      Although this movie probably won't make much sense to anyone not familiar with the 'Haruhi Suzumiya' series, it pays off wonderfully with what is probably the best story in the entire franchise. The detailed animation looks great on Blu-Ray.

      The Best of Haruhi Suzumiya.

      Basically, if you like Haruhi Suzumiya, you should get this. Nothing comes even close to the amazing story, as well as loyalty to the characters. Even people that don't know much about Haruhi would enjoy this.

      If you enjoyed the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumia, you need to see this movie. It's more of that great series and adds some additional information to line up timelines / occurrences.
