Sweet Haruhi: A Review of a Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Fan Fiction Story

Not a crossover story but think of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya combined with the "gestalt" of My Little Pony Freindship is Magic and you have ... Sweet Haruhi.

I stumbled across this one when about to sign off from I usually don't do much reading of others fan fics because, as everyone who reads my works know ... I ... am the greatest anime fan fic writer ever to come along.

Then ... Something comes along to tack the word ... MAYBE ... on to that. Hnnnnngh!

In this case it's Sweet Haruhi by thesweeper1957.

Sweet Haruhi is one of those stories that does just that. No, my ego is not fragile in the least but it does get affronted from time to time.

Having nothing better to do, I read the summary blurb and clicked to the story. After a few paragraphs in I realized I WAS doing something better to do.

Kyon wakes up in an alternate universe where it's, as stated in the Leslie Gore song "Sunshine, lollipops ... Rainbows every where ... Everything is wonderful when ... We're to-geth-er!" (I thought parts of Aaron Coplands', Our Town to be appropriate in places as well.). Yes, it's like that. And not in just basic, primary Fisher Price colors.

The sky's bluer than blue. The world is clean, bright and colorful. Everyone's generally happy, enthusiastically so. Even in their work. So much so, it's like play. No war, strife or crime. Law enforcement is mainly for crowd control at events and giving directions. Never is heard, a discouraging word, and the sky is ... Oh! I mentioned that already.

Oh yes! Not to mention elves, dwarves, fairies, dragons and unicorns show up. I'm not making this up! ... thesweeper1957 did.

However, if there's one unchangable constant in any universe that would be ole "put upon" Kyon. The new world Haruhi may have created gets him a bit discombobulated. Of course, he takes the above in his usual snarky stride and resolves to find a way back to the land of normalcy. Wotta' dip!

But ... Something happens. Something or rather SOMEONE appears who really knocks the sarcastic slider for a loop and a half.

She's in love with him. She calls him honey. She wants to be near him always. She's not kicking him around! She's actually ... NICE ... to him. She even makes him lunch!

And that's when Kyon really gets bento-ed out of shape!

This CAN'T be the Haruhi he's known and "loathed". This isn't the Goddess Whackjob he's always at odds with. This kind, caring, wonderful apparition? Imposter!

This grudgingly makes him more resolved to "go back".

Kyon's not really into happy, is he?

Does he find a way back?

Does he make it back to our world?

Is he really that DUMB!?

It's best you find out yourself by reading Sweet Haruhi.

As for me, I'm heading off to Disneyland! ... Sees ya'!

Princess Tutu: REAL MEN WATCH IT!

Princess Tutu: REAL MEN WATCH IT!

My masculinity has been called into question. HNNNNGH!

Over a week ago, I posted on my blog a Hell Girl fanfic story, Unlikely Avenger, having to do with the Kennedy assassination. A so-called "friend" by the name of Keith von Sulzer, expressed interest so I pointed the story out to him.

A couple days later, he informed me he read the story and liked it. But ... there was something else he saw on my blog main page he was not too crazy about.

"So what's this gay anime you're watching?"


"Y'know ... THAT ... gay anime."

"Gay ... anime?"

"You know ... An anime that's gay."

"Uh ... yuh ... right!"

"Why are you watching something like that?"

"I'm not watching anything gay, anime or otherwise."

"Sure you are," said the miscreant grinning. "And it gives me some doubts about you."


The conversation/accusation continued while I racked  my brain (Man that hurts!) trying to figure out what show he was going on about. Since he's not one to go beyond my blogs' main page, I figured it had to be something within a few past articles. Then it hit me (That hurts too!).

"Wait a sec ... You don't mean ... Princess Tutu?"

"Yeah! That's it."


Now I ask you ... Does this look gay to you? It's not. It's ...
something else. Yeah ... Uh ... something else ... maybe ...

The conversation/accusation went on, I insisting Princess Tutu ... and I ... weren't gay and he talking of the possibility that Princess Tutu ... and that I, because I liked it ... might be "a little light in the loafers".

Needless to say the conversation kept NOT going well.

He clocked out of work grinning and me snarling.

Gentlemen ... That is those of you who like the anime, Princess Tutu ...

Get your tutus on (METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING!) and say it loud and proud:


Indeed ...
