[[caption-width-right:350:I have no interest in ordinary {{chibi}}s!]]

''The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya-chan'' (''Suzumiya Haruhi-chan no Yūutsu'') and ''Nyoron Churuya-san'' are two gag manga spinoffs of ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', animated and broadcast on Website/YouTube as three to five-minute shorts. Though famous for "trolling" on their fanbase as of late, Kyoto Animation was rumored to produce this series as a way to pacify the fans for waiting 3 years for an actual 2nd Season of ''Haruhi''!

Both series have now reached their conclusions, with Haruhi-chan 25 and Nyoro~n 13 being the last episodes. Both are available on [[http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-melancholy-of-haruhi-suzumiya Crunchyroll]], along with the regular LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya episodes.

Bandai has licensed both series and released them on two DVD sets. ''Haruhi-chan'''s manga is licensed by Yen Press.
----

'''''The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya-chan''''' takes the characters and situations from ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'', {{chibi}}fies them, and turns the madness and comedy up to eleven while adding copious amounts of [[RuleOfCute High-Octane Cute]].

----
!!''Haruhi-chan'' provides examples of:

[[folder: Tropes in Haruhi-chan]]

* AllCGICartoon - The first few episodes.
* AnachronicOrder - Just like with [[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya the anime's]] first run and the LightNovels, the ''Haruhi-chan'' shorts are arranged differently than the manga.
* {{Angrish}} - Achakura lapses into this when Nagato gives her dog food in a dog bowl to eat.
* ArtShift
** The characters may go back to their normal-looking selves for a gag (and at one point Bishoujo, before reverting back to SuperDeformed style.
** Yuki's doujin VisualNovel.
* AstronomicZoom
** Every episode of ''Haruhi-chan'' except for episode 25 begins with this.
*** [[BreakingTheFourthWall "Here we g-- *crashes into and cracks the camera*"]]
** SANTA-DA~~~!
* AuthorAppeal - [[NinjaMaid Mori-san]] certainly appears a lot- she's even the focus of the first story in volume 4, where Koizumi gets her to [[spoiler:cosplay as Haruhi]]. And if that's not enough to convince you, there's a surprising amount of bonus art of her in casual clothes or with her hair in a ponytail.
* BadAss - Tsuruya, especially in Episode 21.
** Mori even more so.
* BadAssSanta - Haruhi's concept of Santa, part of a clan of super-muscled old ninjas who infiltrate houses and deposit gifts. And she turns poor [[ThoseTwoGuys Taniguchi]] into one.
* BadBadActing - In episode 20.
--> '''Achakura:''' (monotone) Oh, no. Kimidori-san has gone flat.
--> '''Kimidori:''' (equally monotone) I can't go on. Please commit my body to the ocean.
--> '''Achakura:''' (monotone) Sorry, throwing you in the ocean will be environmental destruction.
* BattleAura - Used for a game of ''[[MundaneMadeAwesome dodgeball!]]''
* BearsAreBadNews - Inverted. Tsuruya claims she once defeated a bear.
* BigEater - Yuki gobbling Valentine's day chocolates... priceless.
* {{Bishonen}}
** Kyon and Itsuki get bishie shots in their host suits in episode 12, complete with {{Bishie Sparkle}}s.
** In the episode where the whole group is having a scavenger hunt Kyon, as part of the game, tells Itsuki that he loves him, causing Itsuki's face to go totally bishonen, or arguably bishojo, complete with DramaticWind and flower petals.
** This is a RunningGag with Kunikida, who is regularly forced to cross-dress and is the only boy allowed to show his face in the "all-girls beach fanservice" chapter in volume 6.
* BlackHelicopter - Used by the Agency in one episode.
* BlandNameProduct - One of the {{Visual Novel}}s Yuki owns in volume 1 is [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Fayte/Stay Night]].
* BlankWhiteEyes
* BlatantLies - Mori after she just jumped through a window.
-->'''Ms. Mori:''' I'm just a normal maid passing through!
* BloodFromTheMouth
** Haruhi, after... [[MundaneMadeAwesome taking story suggestions for an amateur film]]. To the extent that she had to be hospitalized, even.
** Also happened when Achakura kicked Yuki in the gut in episode 10.
* BlowYouAway - Tsuruya, as shown in Episode 17. Poor Mikuru.
* BlueWithShock
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine - Yuki's interactions with Achakura seem to follow these quite closely. Yuki's the boke.
* BoxAndStickTrap: Subverted in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vAfgbbCAGY&t=1m54s episode 8]], Ryoko is GenreSavvy when she sees this particular trap made by Nagato. She goes directly to where "Nagato" is hiding and holding the string. Instead, [[KansasCityShuffle she finds out that it's not her, and a cage falls on her, trapping her.]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall
** Achakura contemplates her previous life, until Kimidori says "I'm not going to let you turn this into a complete episode."
** Kyon asks about another episode's title.
** From episode 14:
--> '''Kyon:''' YOU! It's terrifying to have a balloon burst in your face!
--> '''Haruhi:''' Uh, Kyon, [[LampshadeHanging a main character]] shouldn't make a face like that.
** From Episode 25:
--> '''Nagato(in-game):''' If you'd like...
--> '''Kyon:''' That's from Disappearance!
* BrotherSisterIncest - This might be stretching things, but judging from episode 25's opening, Nagato's game contains a "Kyon's sister" route, so if Kyon's the protagonist...
* ButtMonkey
** Taniguchi and Achakura.
** To some extent Kyon, who always gets the short end of Haruhi's plans. It's a bit like his role in the series turned UpToEleven.
* CameBackWrong - PlayedForLaughs. When Ryoko Asakura manages to regenerate herself as Achakura, she's barely a couple feet tall, and has lost most of her powers. Not to mention that she has a somewhat childish mentality sometimes, being placated by a merry-go-round treatment, karaoke singing, the "legendary" obi-spin, and a piece of chocolate cake. Later in the manga it's revealed that Asakura can use her powers to a certain extent, but doing so causes her to become ''even tinier''! Kimidori-san shows real concern that if she overdoes it she'll wink out of existence.
* CameraAbuse - The AstronomicZoom mentioned above always ends in the camera smashing into Haruhi's face. It even provides the page image.
* CatchPhrase - Yuki's "Oh" after [[BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine outbursts from Achakura]].
** The show's CatchPhrase is "Here we go!" which is said at the start of each episode.
* CatSmile - Haruhi and Tsuruya.
* CharacterExaggeration
** Haruhi is more hyperactive than in the regular series.
** Mikuru is more moe than in the regular series.
** Koizumi has stopped being ''remotely'' subtle in his ShipperOnDeck activities, taking every opportunity to try to convince Kyon to couple up with Haruhi. Kyon's having none of it, although in volume 4 he's able to force Kyon and Haruhi to go on a scripted date together as a penalty game. [[spoiler:They nearly die.]]
** Subverted with Yuki, as her stoicness is overshadowed by her {{otaku}}ness, which ''is'' hinted at in the original series, albeit not as played up. Look at the masks she buys in the [[GroundhogDayLoop Endless Eight]]. So it could be this subtle aspect is exaggerated even more, making it an [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated version]] of CharacterExaggeration.
* CherryBlossoms
* ClothingDamage - Itsuki's shirt gets ripped when Ms. Mori goes flying past him in episode 21.
* ContinuityCameo - Muu-chan, the "Mugen Lion".
* ContinuityNod - Several episodes feature references from previous episodes. For example, the Computer Club's fossilized kappa introduced in episode 5 was stolen by Taniguchi in episode 7. In episode 19, he snuck it back in disguised as Santa.
* ContrivedCoincidence - In episode 19 Taniguchi dresses as Santa and sneaks into the school to put back a gift-wrapped kappa in the Computer Club's room on the same night that Haruhi is holding a Christmas party and has Kyon waiting in the Computer Room to catch Santa.
* CookingDuel - With balloon animals and art, and [[SubvertedTrope it turns out Kyon and Haruhi don't know how to actually make them]].
* {{Cosplay}} - Mikuru and Yuki engage in a cosplay contest. Haruhi is nonplussed.
* CosplayOtakuGirl - Yuki.
* CountingSheep - Zig zagged in the first episode.
* CovertPervert - Yuki. Light on the 'Covert', but with extra 'Pervert'.
* CranialEruption - Yuki and Achakura do this to each other semi-regularly.
* DependingOnTheWriter - Deliberately exaggerated with Yuki, [[GamerChick who]] [[OtakuSurrogate doesn't]] [[CosplayOtakuGirl just]] [[CovertPervert read]] [[YaoiFangirl books]] in this series.
* {{Determinator}} - Kyon, considering how often he blows up.
-->'''Kyon:''' I'm a man with motivation.
* DisappearsIntoLight - Kyon in episode 9. "Hikari ni naru!!!!"
* TheDitz - "Mikuru got confused, and stopped thinking."
* {{Dojikko}} - Itsuki gets into a discussion about Mori dropping by in episode 17, and actually uses the word.
* DoubleKnockout - Episode 10.
* DramaticWind - Episode 17.
* DrivesLikeCrazy - Arakawa. With how that car was spinning he's even worse than [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Yukari-sensei]].
* DynamicEntry - Kyon's sister gives one to Kyon in episode 1 with a spinning drill kick.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Churuya's first appearance is actually [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/churuya_1092.png during the intro of episode 25]].
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt
-->'''Kyon:''' [[ItMakesSenseInContext Koizumi, I love you]].
-->*Koizumi blushes*
-->*Haruhi [[http://i283.photobucket.com/albums/kk318/Anime_Fan_Otaku/Haruhi_feelings_shattered.jpg faints, dark aura appearing,]] [[RealityBreakingParadox reality starts to crack]]*
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning - Yuki spins Achakura [[MemeticMutation right round]] in episodes 6 and 8.
* EyesAlwaysShut
** Itsuki, nearly all the time.
** Kyon, every now and then, unless he has BlankWhiteEyes or is looking intense.
* FanService - [[StupidSexyFlanders Itsuki's]] randomly [[ShirtlessScene open shirt]] in episode 18.
** The manga is even more packed with it, largely due to Haruhi taking any excuse to get the female cast into bikinis.
* FauxYay: Kyon's declaration of love to Koizumi, which nearly caused the world to end.
* FlippingTheTable - Same idea. In Achakura's first episode she becomes increasingly irritated with her treatment by Yuki, culminating when Yuki tries to feed her what appears to be pet food in a doggie dish. Yuki claims that this is a joke and goes to give her some real food but leaves it in the doggie dish, so Achakura flips the dish. Achakura actually does this with a few of the things that Yuki gives her.
* FunSize - Everyone, since they are in chibi form most of the time, but Achakura a step [[strike:higher]] lower.
* GagSeries
* GamerChick - Yuki. Mostly {{Bishoujo Game}}s.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "...and I'm Itsuki, the Crimson Super Ball. Guess why they call me that. Hollaaaa."
* GivingUpTheGhost: Happens to the Computer Club members after the dodgeball game in episode 5.
* GratuitousEnglish
** "Trick or treat. Search and destroy."
** "Nice Kyon!"
** "Hey Kyon! Pass!"
** "COME BAAAAAAAACK!!!"
** "Too vague."
* {{Hatsuyume}} - The premise of Kyon's dream in episode 01, although with a twist. Koizumi is Mt. Fugi (actually just a regular mountain), Tsuruya is the hawk (or rather, a [[VisualPun crane]] with the heart of a hawk), and Nagato is an eggplant cellphone strap.
* HeroicSacrifice - Episode 24, by [[spoiler:Kimidori.]]
* IAmNotLeftHanded - Mori pulls this in episode 21 [[spoiler: during her rooftop fight with Tsuruya, by getting out of her costume]].
* IdiotHair - Much more noticeable here, always appears during Haruhi's silly moments.
* ImplausibleFencingPowers
** In Episode 16, when Yuki sets a sword to homing mode to cut an object in any way possible.
** Subverted when Kyon tried it and his wrists got twisted and his body got thrown around like a ragdoll, since it was the first time he had ever used a sword.
* ImTakingHerHomeWithMe - What Yuki does with Achakura. Although she doesn't do it because Achakura is cute, but rather so she can keep an eye on her.
* {{Infodump}} - Parodied. When Yuki was describing a particularly nasty SealedEvilInACan, everyone else promptly announced that the explanation was too long and they couldn't understand it.
* IWasJustPassingThrough - Frequent excuse made by Arakawa and Mori whenever Itsuki calls them in for favors.
* LuminescentBlush
** ''Kyon'' of all people gets one after Yuki thanks him for the balloons.
** Haruhi during her encounter with "Santa".
* MadeOfExplodium - ''Kyon''.
* MoodWhiplash
** Every time Yuki abuses Achakura and then does something incredibly cute to make up for it.
** Episode 24.
* MundaneMadeAwesome
** ''Supersonic'' dodgeball. With ''{{Battle Aura}}s''.
** The mock kaiju battle in episode 25, with Mikuru as sort-of Mothra and Yuki as Godzilla. Kyon can only watch in stunned silence.
** And from the same episode - ''Manga/DeathNote''-style ''doodling''.
** Mori and Arakawa's various entrances.
** No, Emiri Kimidori appears in the series as well. [[{{Fanservice}} Both times she gets put into a swimsuit.]]
* NinjaMaid - Mori.
* NoodleImplements - Episode 3. We never find out exactly what the "Truck vs Kyon" event involves, but it's hard to forget the line "Here's your firework."
* NotNowWereTooBusyCryingOverYou: Parodied: Kyon and Haruhi are having a blowpipe brawl, and end up hitting Mikuru. Then they're mourning her while learning the lesson about violence that she taught them with her death, just before Mikuru mentions that she's still there.
* OtakuSurrogate - Yuki.
* OutOfCharacterMoment - As you listen to the full intro song, towards the end all three seyus of the girls start to loose their character voice, Mikuru going angry and Nagato losing her monotone singing, for one refrain and then jump back into character for the rest of the song. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=FBArHQ2Tdxc#t=184s Listen closely!]]
* PaperThinDisguise
** [[NinjaMaid Mori]] as a "skydiver who just happened to be passing by"... without a parachute.
** Arakawa counts to a lesser extent with his "taxi driver" who also "just happened to be passing by". [[DeadpanSnarker Kyon]] calls them out almost immediately. Then in volume 5 he uses a school uniform and a wig to stand in for Koizumi at school while Koizumi is away... but neglects to do anything about his moustache.
* {{Parody}} - The intro to the final episode is a DatingSim intro parody.
* PuniPlush
* PunnyName - Achakura is a lisped version of Asakura. "Acha" can also be a "wince in pain" interjection, sometimes reacting to metaphoric pain or even someone else's pain. (E.g., watching someone get hit and saying, "Ooh, that's gotta hurt.")
* ReallyDeadMontage - Happens in episode 24 with [[spoiler:Kimidori, as soon as the Time Bomb explodes. Subverted since he gets better]].
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter - Kimidori-san.
* TheRival - Tsuruya vs Mori. This reaches ''Manga/DragonBall'' levels.
* RuleOfCute - Aww!!
** Mikuru-chan's crying in episode 12 is the cutest thing '''ever'''! She sounds like a little kitten.
** Kyon's Little Sister shows up in the second New Year's Eve dream sequence. [[spoiler:She's half turned into a cow and is ''adorable!'']]
** What? No mention of Achakura? She's the cutest thing on the show!
* RuleOfFunny
* RunningGag
* TheScream - Achakura in episode 20.
* SeriousBusiness - The balloon modelling contest, with TrashTalk from Haruhi and Kyon and Itsuki as the judge and commentator.
** Also the dodgeball game. There's freaking [[BattleAura battle auras]] for crying out loud!
* SexySilhouette ShowerScene - Non-chibi Yuki in episode 24.
* ShirtlessScene - Twice by Itsuki, and both [[FanService completely unnecessary]]. [[LampshadeHanging He even gets called]] for one of those by Kyon.
* ShoutOut
** One to a particular [[EpilepticTrees Epileptic Tree]] - that of Kyon being the real deity in the series - in episode 1. It's even ''lampshaded''.
** There's also "Yasu is the culprit" at the end of the second episode, a ShoutOut to TheReveal of a much beloved [[NoExportForYou in Japan]] PC/NES mystery game, which had undergone MemeticMutation. The reference thoroughly confused much of the western fanbase. The English dub replaces it with [[{{Woolseyism}} "The butler did it."]]
** That lion that's seen with Mikuru looks a lot like Sakutaro from ''Umineko''.
** "[[Franchise/SailorMoon Tuxedo Beard]]" anyone? Let's not forget [[SuperSentai Supernatural Ranger Team]] was mixed in.
** It wasn't translated into English as such, but in episode 19 Kyon says [[HellGirl "Ippen shinde miru?"]] to Haruhi.
** Several episodes reference parts of Book 7: the Spring Setsubun Festival (episode 8), the Valentine's Day chocolate cakes (episodes 11 and 12), the treasure hunt (episodes 17 and 18), and Mori and Arakawa riding around in a taxi (episodes 12 and 18).
** Kyon shouting "Hikari ni naru~" (see DisappearsIntoLight) is a direct ShoutOut to GaoGaiGar.
** That ghostly Santa looks suspiciously like that red-eyed Santa Claus in ''JungleWaItsumoHaleNochiGuu''.
** One of the lines in the intro is [[Manga/DragonBall KA-ME-HA-ME-HA]]!
** The fighting game that Nagato offers to play with Kyon is VideoGame/StreetFighterII with all the characters as cute girls
* SinisterSilhouettes - Parodied with Asakura claiming to be a member of the [[FourIsDeath Radical Big Four]], which is quickly revealed [[SortingAlgorithmOfEvil to be under]] the [[TerribleTrio three leaders]], all of whom are shown as generic featureless silhouettes. Kyon proceeds to call it cheesy and blame it on [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portopia_Renzoku_Satsujin_Jiken Yasu.]]
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender
* SlowMotionPassBy - In episode 12.
* SpinningClockHands - While Haruhi and the other girls prepare chocolate sculptures.
* SpitTake - Kyon's understandable reaction to finding out [[HGame what Yuki was doing on her laptop.]]
** He has another one when, while trying not to laugh at Mikuru's attempts at a cosplay war with Yuki, she sneaks up behind him in her frog suit[[note]]The caption says "It's rezally a bear"[[/note]]. He turns to look, and subsequently laughs.
* SpotlightStealingSquad - [[NinjaMaid Mori-san,]] although moreso in the comics than in the animation. Just read any of the mangas and you'll see.
** To a lesser extent, [[{{Chibi}} Achakura]] and [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter Kimidori-san.]]
** As of volume 5, [[{{Bishonen}} Kunikida's]] been getting his fair share too.
* {{Squee}} - An in-story example is Haruhi's reaction to cornering "Santa". Her angrily-flushed cheeks visibly give way to a LuminescentBlush, and the resulting squeal echoes throughout the solar system, and even the galaxy.
* StuffBlowingUp
** When Nagato ties Achakura to a bunch of hydrogen-filled balloons, they float to the ceiling, hit the lights, and ''blow up the apartment''.
** Also, Kyon blows up during the filming of a drama. Haruhi's comments indicate that he does this on a semi-regular basis.
** There's even a TimeBomb involvement in episode 24.
* SuperDeformed - The predominant art style.
* SuperWindowJump - Via NinjaMaid.
* SurrealThemeTune
** Warning! [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBArHQ2Tdxc&feature=related The following song]] has been known to cause [[YourHeadASplode violent head explosions!]] Proceed at your own risk. The [[http://atashi.wordpress.com/2009/04/26/the-melancholy-of-haruhi-chan-suzumiya-opening-theme-ima-made-no-arasuji/ lyrics]] may or may not be relevant to the show. Nobody's really sure.
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQQZXGuN8wQ ending theme]] is somehow even more infectious than the opening. Something about it is so unbelievably cheesy that it rolls all the way over back into awesome. Perhaps it's the fact that the lyrics turn out to be one massive troll to the fans about Season 2.
* SweatDrop
* ThemeTuneCameo - In episode 4, Mikuru hums [[DancingTheme "Hare Hare Yukai"]].
* {{Tsundere}} - Achakura.
* VillainDecay - {{Parodied|Trope}}. Achakura attempts to avert this shortly after [[CameBackWrong Coming Back Wrong]] by escaping from Yuki's apartment in order to kill Kyon, but rapidly changes her mind after a cat starts eyeing her up for lunch. [[invoked]]
* WallJump - Achakura attempts this in episode 10. Guess how it turned out.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids - In-universe: In the subbed version, Kyon protested that the game Yuki lent him was rated E... [[{{Eroge}} but that didn't stand for "everyone" in this case.]]
* WikiWalk - Lampshaded, complete with step-by-step explanation.
* WireDilemma - Yuki sets one up for Achakura and Kimidori to solve in episode 24. [[spoiler:They don't even bother]].
* WrittenSoundEffect - All the time.
** WrittenRoar - Mikuru's "Honya~!"(ほにぁー!)
* UnwillingSuspension - Mikuru in episode 25.
* VisibleSigh
* VocalEvolution - A version of it. Haruhi's voice is more high pitched and sounds more similar to [[LuckyStar Konata]] then her main anime counterpart.
* XMeetsY - ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'' meets ''LuckyStar''.
* YaoiFangirl
** Haruhi's script for ''[[IncrediblyLamePun The Gift of the Maid]] II: Stealing Love Within a Month of Death'' has Kyon and Itsuki winning the battle-maid tournament and becoming a couple. Haruhi witnessing Kyon's discovery of a "barrier to the heart" put her in a short-term amnesiac coma.
** Yuki's visual novel starring the cast included Itsuki and Arakawa as possible paths for Kyon!

[[/folder]]

----
'''''Nyoron Churuya-san''''' follows the adventures of Tsuruya's super deformed counterpart Churuya as she quests for smoked cheese, [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption almost always unsuccessfully.]] Also featured is Ashakura, Ryoko's counterpart with a [[StalkerWithACrush massive, but ultimately doomed crush]] on Kyon.

Everyone besides Churuya and Ashakura is rendered with the same generic, non-super-deformed body with EyesAlwaysShut, and they're all general {{jerk ass}}es. Still, Churuya usually gets a happy ending after enduring some hardships throughout the rest of the episode.

----

!!''Nyoron Churuya-san'' provides examples of:

[[folder: Tropes in Churuya-san]]

* BlankWhiteEyes - To the point of being downright creepy.

* KeepItForeign - The "Why?" -> "Naze?" line by Kyon to Ashakura in episode 7, a direct reference to the main series.

* VerbalTic - You know the one. :3 nyoro~n...
** Also the dust bunnies end their sentences with "hokori" ("dusty" in the dub).
* YankTheDogsChain - Poor Churuya expects to go on a trip with the SOS Brigade, but Haruhi cancels it when she's already at the place.
* {{Yonkoma}} - What the series is based on.
