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.

This film is great, but pretty long and confusing. It’s Haruhi and could easily be one arc of the show. It’s not a slice of life version of Haruhi though and continues straight on from the light novels and the next plot line is really interesting.

I would also recommend finishing the manga since the plot lines of the manga bring the drama back to Haruhi and are fun to read.

  1. This is one anime film I love, though having watched the series is essential to understanding anything that happens here. I think this film really just brings out the best in the characters from the series and I really enjoyed the story and its conclusion. A lot of fun to watch (and really beautiful as well).

    • Yeah my friend watched it after seeing that I gave it a 9/10 and was completely confused!

      It’s a complete story and is really entertaining. I’ll also recommend you read the manga because theirs also a really great arc like this film which never got an adaptation to anime.
