The Unbearable Likeness of Haruhi

Whilst researching titles for my series of posts about anime heroines I came across this awesome website which compiles most, if not all of the Japanese releases for consoles both new and old. There are pictures and YouTube videos… descriptions but hey, a picture is worth a thousand words. Anyway I came across a arcade game with this Battle Athletes menu screen and I thought I recognised somebody.

Haruhi and Gang

Let’s compare the two…

Okay, so her hair is longer in the Battle Athlete picture but they have the same look and the same colour ribbon. Now I knew that The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya involved time travel but little did I suspect that she had inserted herself into an old video game from 1996.

Well, tomorrow sees the start of an intermittent series I mentioned not so long ago. I hope it goes well.

I tried to make a pun on The Unbearable Lightness of Being but my brain was too tired out…
