On the surface, The Melancholy Of Haruhi Suzumiya is an innocent slice of life series.
But there’s a lot more going on than you first realize. Which is why the quotes are a little more strange, entertaining and thought provoking compared to your average slice of life anime.
The MC: Haruhi Suzumiya is to thank for that.
Here are some of the best the anime has to offer.

“You can’t do anything about what doesn’t exist. In the end humans settle for what’s in front of them. If you think about it, humans who were unable to do that made discoveries or inventions and advanced civilization. Planes were invented because people wanted to fly. Cars and trains came to be because people wanted easier means to move around. However, this came from a limited number of people who had innovative plans and concepts. In other words, geniuses made it all possible. Common folk like us are best off living an ordinary life.” – Kyon

6. Asakura Ryouko Quotes

7. Haruhi Suzumiya Quotes
“I thought that everyone in Japan had to be packed in there. So I turned to my dad and asked him,”Do you know how many people are here right now”? He said probably fifty thousand, since the stadium was full. I was only one little person in that big crowded stadium filled with people, and there were so many people there, but it was just a handful out of the entire population. Up till then, I always thought that I was, I don’t know, kind of a special person. It was fun to be with my family. I had fun with my classmates. And the school that I was going to, it had just about the most interesting people anywhere. But that night, I realized it wasn’t true. All the stuff we did during class that I thought was so fun and cool, was probably happening just like that in classes in other schools all over Japan. There was nothing special about my school at all.” – Haruhi Suzumiya
