The Haruhi Suzumiya series has its own seiyuu unit known as the SOS Brigade. It comprises of Minori Chihara (Yuki Nagato), Yuko Goto (Mikuru Asahina), and of course, Aya Hirano. Now, after a few years, the SOS Brigade reunites once again for a surprise performance during Animelo Summer Live 2017 -THE CARD-.
The event actually didn’t tell fans that the seiyuu trio would appear in the event’s first day. And as expected, when the three came out, they immediately shocked the fans. And when the music played, they then performed their hit ED song, Hare Hare Yukai. Of course, the crowd went absolutely nuts.
The song served as the ED for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and then later became synonymous with the series. In fact, it started a dance craze among anime fans around the world, who danced along the songs beat, copying the moves of the anime characters in the ED sequence.
Sure, Kyon and Itsuki may be missing, but the crowd treated the surprise performance as a big deal. Animelo continues its summer live this weekend over in Japan.
