Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya - Episodes 13-14

Once again it's The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya time again, with another double bill of episodes on offer. Episode thirteen (rather aptly, all things considered) takes in Halloween, with Haruhi seemingly clueless as to how this particular event should be celebrated. So, what we end up with is an immensely scary prop, kitted out with a somewhat ruined pumpkin on account of Nagato's exacting nature. Oh, and real bats.

Episode fourteen on the other hand proves to be far funnier in its own bizarre way, with a balloon and blowgun fight between Kyon and Haruhi leading to the "death" of Mikuru. Never ones to let such opportunities go to waste, this state of affairs leads to a balloon art contest between the pair of them as they try to decorate the "tomb" upon which Mikuru is crucified. No, I don't know what's going on either in the script writer's minds either, but it's bloody hilarious.

But, of course, where would we be without Nyoron Churuya-san? Nowhere, that's where, and thankfully we're regaled with another new instalment here. It probably goes without saying that this is the funniest short segment of the day, but I really cannot begin to describe the hilarity that is the Churuya's Great Great Adventure video game displayed here. By the end of it I'd fallen off my seat in tears of laughter, it's utter, utter brilliance.
