Every episode so far of The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya seems to be getting more and more random - Not that this is a bad thing, as however short they may be each episode also seems to be getting funnier and funnier.
This particular episode was two and a half minutes of surreal genius, with Haruhi holding a local quiz with questions on the Big Bang (that's not local!), the name of some passing dog, and pitting Kyon against a small truck. With a firework of course, to make it fair. Between that and Nagato with a siren/buzzer on her head, the entire thing left me laughing while simultaneously (and frequently) shouting "What the Hell is going on?!". Mission accomplished for this episode, methinks.
Meanwhile, Nyoron Churuya-san seems to be getting by on a mixture of a mini-Churuya being really rather adorable, and the repeated use of her catchphrase (which does seem to be catching, as I've used it a few times this week when things haven't gone to plan). It did make me laugh a couple of times as well, so it seems to be working somehow.
