Okay, I haven't seen it yet, but I don't think Haruhi is melancholy to me. She's your fun Japanese teen dudette who goes on weird adventures and stuff and even invents a big top 40 dance routine called the 'Hare Hare Yukai'.

Sorry, to whoever created this series, but Haruhi is not melancholy to me. Again, don't blame her, blame whoever comes up with names to Japanese anime and manga.

PS. I'll try to see this series when I get a chance.

Initially Kyon snaps her out of the melancholy by suggesting she form her own club
Prior to that she is what you would call melancholy due to her dissapointment at the world being normal/boring (and those that inhabit it, herself included)

She has a tendency to slip back into it if things are not exciting enough too.

The show is based on a series of light novels...the first one just happend to be the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Other books in the series which were essentially an episode in the anime had other names like The Bordem of haruhi Suzumiya, etc etc. But it'd be kinda hard to change the show's name all the time lol Smile
