* FranchiseKiller: After the first series of the anime became a ''phenomenon,'' the second series was the most anticipated anime imaginable. People were ''craving'' it for ''years'' as it got [[ScheduleSlip increasingly delayed]]. When it eventually arrived, to much rejoicing, it was so [[HypeBacklash colossally underwhelming]] (with 'Endless Eight' becoming one of the most-despised anime storylines ''of all time'') that it ''completely'' destroyed the franchise as an anime property. Not even the well-received movie adaptation of ''Disappearance'' was enough to save it- while the second season was the most-anticipated anime of the decade, pretty much no-one even ''wants'' a third season.

* HeyItsThatVoice: The English dub cast reads like a veritable who's who of English voice talent:
** The SOS Brigade includes [[[Anime/CowboyBebop Faye Valentine]] and [[Manga/LuckyStar Konata Izumi]] (Wendee Lee/Haruhi), [[Anime/HellsingUltimate Alucard]] (Crispin Freeman/Kyon), [[StreetFighter Crimson Viper]], [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Cream the Rabbit]], [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko Littner]], and [[Manga/LuckyStar Tsukasa Hiiragi]] (Michelle Ruff/Yuki), [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Hinata Hyuuga]] (Stephanie Sheh/Mikuru), [[PowerRangers the second Black Ranger, Adam Park]], [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Ichigo Kurosaki]], [[Anime/CodeGeass Lelouch vi Britannia]], [[Manga/TriGun Vash the Stampede]], and [[VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron Bumblebee]] (Johnny Yong Bosch/Itsuki).
** Their classmates include [[Manga/AhMyGoddess Belldandy]] (Bridget Hoffmann/Asakura), [[Anime/SamuraiChamploo Fuu Kasumi]], [[Manga/LuckyStar KagamiHiiragi]], and [[WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents Chloe Carmichael]] (Kari Wahlgren/Tsuruya, as well as Kyon's sis), [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Donatello]], [[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Phoenix Wright]], and [[VideoGame/TransformersWarForCybertron Starscream]] (Sam Riegel/Taniguchi), [[Anime/OutlawStar Jim Hawking]] (Brianne Siddall/Kunikida), [[Anime/DigimonTamers Henry Wong]] (Dave Wittenberg/President of the Computer Club), and [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Starfire]], [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Nia Teppelin]], and [[WesternAnimation/Adventure Time Princess Bonnibel Bubblegum]] (Hynden Walch/Emiri).
** On the island we have [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub Tamaki Suoh]] (Vic Mignogna/Yutaka), [[ChalkZone Penny Sanchez]] (also Hynden Walch, who plays Sonou), [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex Saito]] (also Dave Wittenberg, who plays Keiichi) and [[Anime/TheBigO Alex Rosewater]] (Michael Forest/Arakawa).
** The Japanese voices are as hilarious: Haruhi is voiced by Creator/AyaHirano, who also voiced [[LuckyStar Konata Izumi]] (who cosplayed ''and'' imitated Haruhi in an episode; Lucky Star is well-known for making at least one Haruhiverse reference per episode), and Mikuru shares a voice with [[BandageBabe bandage babe]] [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan snarker]] [[SayonaraZetsubouSensei Abiru Kobushi]] (YukoGoto).
*** And with a little mind twist you realize [[Creator/AyaHirano Haruhi]]'s seiyuu voiced [[Manga/DeathNote Misa Amane]], the love rival of [[Creator/MaayaSakamoto Kiyomi Takada]], whose seiyuu voiced… [[OuranHighSchoolHostClub Haruhi]]. You can't invent it.
** [[YukiMatsuoka Tsuruya-san]] is [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Osaka]] and [[Manga/{{Bleach}} Orihime]]… not quite at their level of CloudCuckooLander-ness but it sounds strangely appropriate.
** Italian dub? Haruhi is either [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Azula]], [[WhatsNewScoobyDoo Daphne]] or [[SonicX Rouge the Bat]] (Domitilla D'Amico), Kyon is [[TransformersFilmSeries Sam Witwicky]], [[WesternAnimation/TotalDramaIsland Cody]] and [[Anime/CodeGeass Suzaku]] (Davide Perino), Mikuru is [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko]] and [[Manga/LovelyComplex Risa]] ''[[Manga/LovelyComplex Koizumi]]'' (Valentina Favazza), Nagato is [[Anime/ExcelSaga Hyatt]] (Perla Liberatori) and Koizumi can be either Manga/{{Naruto}}, [[Anime/DigimonTamers Terriermon]] or [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Beast Boy]] (Leonardo Graziano).

** The anime was struck with this in the United States when Creator/BandaiEntertainment decided to cease DVD productions entirely. Thankfully, efforts have been made to rescue Bandai's library, with ''Haruhi Suzumiya'' falling into the hands of Funimation. This had the side-effect of user-posted full episodes of the series being pulled from YouTube for copyright reasons. The ''Haruhi-chan'' and ''Nyorin-chan'' spin-offs were unaffected, and all shorts can still be found on YouTube.

* CashCowFranchise: {{Image Song}}s out the wazoo (see below) and loads of other merchandise show that they could probably go more for years without even making more episodes. Which is good, considering [[{{Vaporware}} how long book 10 took to be published]]. In the meantime, we can buy a Haruhi game for the UsefulNotes/{{PSP}}, the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 PS2]] or the [[UsefulNotes/NintendoDS DS]]. And we still have two more games to choose from on the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}. Milking the cash cow at its finest. But [[NoExportForYou only if you live in Japan.]]
