A Very Merry Christmas Review of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
Japanimation Station's Kyoto Vacation Christmas Spectacular!
Merry Christmas and welcome to Japanimation Station’s Kyoto Vacation, Season 4 of the anime podcast brought to you by the folks at The Weekly Stuff Podcast. We are here to dive into the wide and wonderful world of anime, and you can subscribe on all platforms at JapanimationStation.Com.
It’s December 25th, and Christmas has finally come to Otaku Town – and with it, the final episode of Part 2 of our Kyoto Vacation. For today’s very special episode, we are finishing our journey through the world of Haruhi Suzumiya with the 2010 film The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, the nearly-three-hour climactic story in Kyoto Animation’s beloved adaptation of Nagaru Tanigawa’s light novels. It’s an absolute masterpiece of a film, telling its story of Kyon waking up in a world without the SOS Brigade patiently and tenderly, and building to a series of incredibly powerful emotional climaxes. It is also a truly beautiful Christmas movie in the vein of A Christmas Carol or It’s a Wonderful Life, and one of the very best of its kind, making it the perfect film to celebrate the holiday and ring out what has been a very big 2023 for Japanimation Station!
Have a Happy New Year, and we will see all of you in 2024 for Part 3 of our Kyoto Vacation, “Moe Money, Moe Problems: After School Tea Time with the Girls of K-On!”
