Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya - Episodes 19-20

It's Christmas! Well, it is in The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya world anyway. That can only mean one thing - A Christmas party for everyone... except Kyon of course.

Naturally, Kyon's job is to protect the SOS brigade from the threat of an evil Santa out to destroy them and their club, although given that thought Haruhi seems to be entirely too pleased when "Santa" actually appears. Mildly amusing stuff, and I got a kick out of how the arrival of "Santa" actually tied in to a much earlier episode.

Meanwhile, episode twenty fast forwards us to April Fool's Day, with mini-Ryoko and her balloon dog companion Kimidori (you know, when I type it like that I have to wonder what drugs the episode writers have been taking) trying to play a couple of pranks on Nagato. Naturally, Yuki is having none of it, coming back with an evil prank of her own, and giving us a brief dose of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya's ridiculous hilarity at its best.

Last but not least, do I really need to mention how hilarious is Nyoron Churuya-san is yet again? From trying to smoke some smoked cheese to getting lured into the Windows Recycle Bin with smoked cheese (which is officially the funniest thing I've seen all week), as per usual episode ten had me laughing long and hard.
