The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is an adaptation of a series of novels written by Naguro Tanigawa. You can see these adventures in the following Te Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya images below.
At first, it seems like another conventional comedy about a couple of kids in high school, creating a club, and having crazy adventures.

The main character is Haruhi, a seemingly ordinary girl who has the misfortune of always being very bored.
Together with her friend Kyon she founds a school club to look for aliens, time travelers, and other supernatural creatures to hang out with them.
She calls her club “SOS Brigade”, under the motto: “Save the world with an overdose of fun”.
Haruhi doesn’t know that she is a divine and all-powerful entity and that she unconsciously can alter reality in ways that are as incredible as they are dangerous.
At the beginning of the story, she recruits three additional members to her club: the silent Yuki Nagato, the shy Mikuru Asahina, and the friendly exchange student Itsuki Koizumi.
These members soon reveal themselves to Kyon as the extraordinary characters Haruhi is looking for, sent by their respective organizations to observe (and control) her.
The series’s dynamics is simple: everyone in the club tries to do their best to keep Haruhi from getting bored, angry, or sad, hiding her true nature and thus diminishing the enormous damage her powers can cause.
The adaptation of the first plot arches -a the first season of 14 episodes- came out in 2006. It quickly became one of the biggest hits in the history of animé, raging worldwide and becoming an unstoppable cultural phenomenon.
A second season of the animé was announced with great fanfare in 2007 when its popularity was at its peak. What followed was an experiment never before seen that put the loyalty of the fans in check.
With only one plot arc, Haruhi Suzumiya’s Melancholy managed to anger her entire audience and generate controversy among fans who felt cheated and troubled.
Endless Eight consisted of eight episodes where the main cast was caught in a temporary loop in the best Groundhog Day style.
Haruhi wished for endless summer and, since he was a God, he modified reality -unknowingly- so that the same day would be repeated more than 15,000 times until Kyon discovered the way to get out of the loop.
