It seems that it's time for another double bill of The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya, with the series taking ever more bizarre turns in its bid to amuse and entertain.
Episode nine involves the creation of a drama, which (thanks to ideas posited by all of the SOS Brigade members, which Haruhi receives entirely too warmly) ends up as some kind of scenario involving maids fighting to the death - Certainly not good news considering that Kyon is paired up with Nagato in the first battle...
Meanwhile, episode ten features some more mini-Ryoko, as she attempts to reach the bathroom sink before inadvertently giving Nagato a head injury, and then trying to make her way out of the house before the appearance of a neighbourhood cat gives her pause for though (or should that be "paws for thought?" Haha. Ha. Ahem). Not particularly great episodes on either count it has to be said, but you can't win them all.
The same cannot be said of episode five of Nyoron Churuya-san however, with its miniature episodes that never fail to crack me up with their utterly bizarre pointlessness. Wandering off with a model Tsuruya? "You will die"? It's hilarious.
