Crunchyroll has launched the second season of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya this weekend for premium users while free users will get four episodes released per week until its conclusion. The streaming release of this series looks to mostly mirror what the previous season was with availability in the Americas, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Turkey, Sweden, the Middle East and Africa
Plot summary: Not long after the entrance of the school, Suzumiya Haruhi introduced herself in a strange way.
“I’m not interested in ordinary people. If you came from outer space, or from the future, or you have a supernatural power, come to my place”
The classmates wondered whether she was serious or just kidding, but as our protagonist Kyon finds out, there was way more to this girl than anyone could ever imagine.
