Yay the 2nd season of one of my favorite Anime Series is now being aired! Also like the first season, the episodes will air in a different order then intended. At first I thought it was kind of weird how they did this, but when you rewatch the series again in the correct order, you pick up A LOT of stuff, and its like a whole different story.
The first episode of season 2, is actually the 8th episode of the 14 episode season. I’m looking forward to watching the series this season, and can’t wait to rewatch it in the correct order… again.
For those of you who haven’t watched the first season yet, go watch it now! Watch it in the order it was aired, then rewatch it in the chronological order. For those of you who watched the first season, but haven’t watched it in chronological order yet, here is the correct order (the order intended by Haruhi).
Chronological Order for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Season 1
- “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 1″ ( aired as episode 02 )
- “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 2″ ( aired as episode 03 )
- “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 3″ ( aired as episode 05 )
- “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 4″ ( aired as episode 10 )
- “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 5″ ( aired as episode 13 )
- “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Part 6″ ( aired as episode 14 )
- “The Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya” ( aired as episode 04 )
- “Mystérique Sign” ( aired as episode 07 )
- “Remote Island Syndrome Part 1″ ( aired as episode 06 )
- “Remote Island Syndrome Part 2″ ( aired as episode 08 )
- “The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00″ ( aired as episode 01 )
- “Live Alive” ( aired as episode 12 )
- “The Day of Sagittarius” ( aired as episode 11 )
- “Someday in the Rain” ( aired as episode 09 )
How can you tell what the order is supposed to be? If you watch the preview at the end of each episode, you can hear Haruhi tell you what the next episode number is supposed to be. For example, after the aired episode 3, Haruhi says something like “next time on episode 5…” So the chronological order is considered to be the order “Haruhi Intended”, and you know you have to follow her orders…
