Dreams, Amelia - dreams and false alarms

I watched season one, but I was too apathetic to bother with season two, so maybe I'll jump in for that.

Mikuru is the one character who didn't grow on me at least a little bit over the course of season one. She never does anything. Maybe if I stick with the simulwatch my opinion will change, who knows.

I don't think this simulwatch is gonna work with my schedule until later in the week, I had something come up today and I know I'll be out of the house this time on Wednesday.

Man, finding this poo poo in the broadcast order is really hard to do. I swear one of these dodgy streaming sites just straight up mislabeled everything.

See, what happened is that I had a hard time determining which of the four possible episode numbering schemes the site was using, because it didn't provide their titles.

I wonder how Kyon got that higher-angle shot of the school roof at the beginning of Yuki and Mikuru's climactic battle.

Man, I'd forgotten how adorable Kyon's Sister is.

Her best scene is still to come IMO.

Anyway I spent the whole 5-6 PST period stuck in traffic (well not all of it, but enough) so I'll catch up on this tonight.

I hadn't noticed how Asakura, or whatever the student council president's name is, runs sideways/backwards at the beginning of episode 3. That takes some talent.

I think this episode shows Kyon and Haruhi at their worst. She's terrible and he complains and complains but doesn't do poo poo.

e: wait, if she bought the bunny outfits online, why did they come in shopping bags?

The scene in Yuki's apartment is really well done. The high contrast and minimal furnishing creates an austere, foreign atmosphere that sets it apart from the other locations visited so far.

It's funny that this episode is the one that feels most like a "filler" episode. At least to me, it always felt the least consequential.
