Melancholy of Haruhi-chan #21 and 22 and Nyoron Churuya-san #11

You know the drill: Churuya 11 subbed. Haruhi 21 subbed. Haruhi 22 subbed.

Nyoron Churuya #11



Whoa, a whole episode without one of the standard Churuya nyoron jokes. Fine by me, because I like the ASAHAKURA – Churuya – Kyon love triangle of failure anyway. Watching this, I couldn’t help but wonder how Churuya and ASAHAKURA were able to hold pencils and write without thumbs. And is Churuya tauting ASAHAKURA when she calls her Assyacchi? Or was that just a translation gone horribly wrong? At the end of the day, Kyon ends up with Churuya and ASAHAKURA gets left out in the dust. I guess it’s only fair that if Churuya can’t get her smoked cheese then ASAHAKURA isn’t going to get any Kyon smooches.

Haruhi-chan #21




One of the more bizarre webisodes of Haruhi-chan – which is saying a lot – simply because there was some semblance of a nonsensical plot. The gang all go to I guess what is a sentai stage show, starring Arakawa and Meido Mori, to satisfy Nagato’s raging otaku needs, and Churuya I mean Tsuruya finds herself in a mano-a-mano showdown with Mori. They’ve been building to the Mori-Tsuruya duel for a few episodes now. Of course, I don’t know why they’ve been building to this duel, or why the two ended up fighting, but this is the Internet – things don’t need to make sense.

Action-fighter Tsuruya was pretty cool to see, but Mori was even better. She’d give Sayoko a run for her money. I did get a chuckle out of Haruhi, of all people, having to restrain Nagato from acting too crazy. And you could see it coming a mile away, but Kyon and Koizumi’s last puzzle piece destruction was pretty funny.

I feel a little silly asking for plot clarification, but I wouldn’t mind knowing why Tsuruya felt compelled to challenge Mori. Otherwise, I’d rather KyoAni keep their drama out of the Haruhi-chan skits.

Haruhi-chan #22



ACHAKURA didn’t bring a whole bucket of laughs this week, but she replaced with a higher than recommended daily dosage of cuteness. While she’s been quite domesticated by her chibication, she’s also brought Nagato back from the land of otakus and helped Kimidori become a helpful part of the household. Seriously, now that she even does household chores, I really need to find where I can get my own chibi ACHAKURA.

  1. Nyoron Churuya took the cake for me this time (and it usually does actually), and they definitely need to make Churuya and ASAHAKURA plushies! I’d buy them in a heart beat, and also start scumpa-bumpin’ them like theres no tomorrow!… 😉

    Like you said, the whole Tsuruya-fighting-Mori thing is pretty weak. I think the only reason she fights her is cause shes a maid (Tsuruya also has the maid-outfit thing going on, so she doesn’t want to be second best 8) )

      1. They’re perfect pillow sizes.

        Whoa! Didn’t know you were into that yo! =3 How much are dakimakuras now-a-days? 😀
