The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya Movie: An Afterthought

One great thing about the Haruhi franchise is that it leaves enough unanswered questions to keep fans guessing, and the shippers happy. The events of the final chronological episode in the first season, the embarrassing things that happened during the underage drinking in Remote Island Mystery (which was completely omitted from the anime due to obvious reasons), Adult Asahina’s coquettism to Kyon, etc. One’s mind could run amok trying to make light of these things.

I think that’s a great thing, encouraging the audience to interpret the subtle stuff for themselves.

Now, about the after-credits scene in the Disappearance movie. Did the sight of boy helping a girl apply for a library card make Nagato happy? Is that a smile she’s hiding behind her book?

To me, the answer is both yes.

    Nice afterthought. I agree, Nagaru Tanigawa makes a lot of the exchanges between the characters ambiguous, making it easier for the fans to interpret things for themselves. It can sometimes get frustrating if you’re looking for concrete answers, but until the series ends it makes for much better fan immersion.

    It can get frustrating at time but like you said, such method avoid the WWIII from happening

    Nagato is obviously reading some hardcore Bara.
    Hence the smile.

    I think that’s a great thing to watch
