Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya - Episodes 21-22

Time for another The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya double-bill, and this time around our double helping of insanity kicks off with a surprisingly action-packed little number.

Thanks to Tsuruya obtaining some free tickets to the "Supernatural battle show" (which is of course in no way a take on Power Rangers), and due to Yuki's enthusiasm towards it, the SOS Brigade get to enjoy a Sunday out. Of course, this being what it is the good and bad guys in this particular event are played by Mr. Arakawa and Miss Mori respectively, with the latter ending up in an epic battle with Tsuruya. Meanwhile, Kyon and Koizumi pass the courtesy of a 100,000 piece jigsaw (as you do), but even they aren't entirely immune to the side-effects of Tsuruya's big fight.

Meanwhile, episode twenty-two has Ryoko doing the housework, and very serious she is about it too. That's pretty much all there is to it apart from an obvious gag or two, which somehow makes it all the more amusing. You still can't beat Kyon's jigsaw puzzle despair in the previous episode though.

Never mind though, because Ryoko gets yet more screen time in the latest instalment of Nyoron Churuya-san, where she tries to remove her name from a test because Kyon had forgotten to write his, only he actually had. Thus, we're left with Ryoko and Churuyahaving to resit the exam. I won't spoil the rest of the gags (a number of which had me laughing out loud), but I'm sure you can guess at least a couple of them without even watching the episode. As usual, hilarious stuff.

Note that Ashakura and Achakura are played as different identities by KyoAni.
