Fishing some new slices of life…

Haruhi Suzumiya’s lesson on life

Hello dear readers…

This post will maybe seem a bit short, but it is something that seemed very important for me to share, and I’d better publish it right now instead of seeing this bit of wisdom disappear forever… A fish is always better cooked fresh.

Today, I discovered this very well known anime that is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. And, as surprising as it might seem to you, this made me rediscover a pretty important part of life…

Haruhi Suzumiya is a japanese high-school student. Despite her outstanding beauty and her apparently normal look, she is quite an odd person. Obsessed by espers, aliens, and other paranormal beings, she created a school club striving to find all the related cases that happened nearby. However, it happens that not everyone is normal around here…

I haven’t finished the entire series yet… but I must say Haruhi really left her mark on me. Even since the very beginning, her eccentricity has been obvious. And yet, she manages to live with this entirely strange image and reputation without any complex at all. She entirely assumes her behaviour and passion, would it be shocking and against any custom, regardless of what others will think of it, and it is a very admirable quality. And the anime’s opening song is very good at showing it already :

Moreover, her personality really amazed me… She managed to create a club about her own passion. She always finds her own way to do anything she wants (a new religion has even been created to praise that), and never gives up to people’s opinion or to despair. In short, she always bears an incredible determination to reach her goals. Her willpower might be different from what heroes like Luffy from One Piece, but it does exist, and is definitely something strong and awesome with her.

Last but not least, I really find her goal amazing. What does she try to do? She wants to discover all this life’s oddities and inconsistencies. And when you think of it… she just wants to make life less boring and more interesting. She just wants to have fun. And I believe that we have something to learn from that… Fun doesn’t come all by itself in life. You create the conditions to have fun. You have to be active in this conservative life, to strive to make things move, to carry on projects and to plan things, in order to change anything… in short, you have to live your life as an fabulous and passionnate adventure to make it interesting. You are the one who has to take initiatives, and no one else will be able to do this.

To conclude, managing to realize all that only after having watched 5 episodes of this anime really makes me believe that this anime is very good. Watch it! (this is the 2nd episode, the first one is a bit puzzling to be honest.)

    about the 1st episode: chronologicaly, it’s the 11th one, so it’s normal if it seems a bit confusing.
