The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya or Suzumiya Haruhi No Yuutsu



The story is narrated by Kyon, an ordinary highschool boy who inspired Haruhi to create SOS Brigade. It doesn't hurt to mention that his fellow memberes are an alien, time traveler and esper, all who are investigating or perhaps willed by the center of the universe--Haruhi. They mainly have to keep Haruhi entertained or she might unknowingly replace erm destroy the universe. The episodes are curiously aired in random order which really saved the best for last.

Ouran High School Host Club



I've watched this months ago. Haruhi Fujioka accidentally stumbled upon a silly high school club of boys aimed to entertain the rich student body and was blackmailed to serving the group. Haruhi, yes same name, is in fact a girl. The plot is silly and funny and consciously banked on anime stereotypes, but in the end everything made sense.

Both animes are about school clubs, both have the same female protagonist named Haruhi (who both chopped off their locks) and both endings have made an impact on me that I kept on replaying the sweetest scenes on my mind. I am really hoping for second seasons for this two.
