Key events Edit
- This episode features the 15,524th loop of the summer. The events in this episode are similar to those of the previous one, except for the ordinary change of clothes and speech.
Again Haruhi drags the SOS Brigade around to do various activities, including swimming in the pool, going to an O-bon festival, playing with fireworks, and bug hunting for the 15,524th time. However, Kyon becomes plagued by an increasing sense of déjà vu as the activities continue. Again, Mikuru calls Kyon in a panicked state, asking him to meet her. Kyon meets up with her, Yuki, and Itsuki to find that he has been experiencing an endless loop of events from August 17 to August 31. When time reaches August 31, time resets and everyone's memories are erased (albeit not thoroughly). This is caused by the fact that Haruhi does not want summer to end because she feels she still has things she must do. Yuki reveals that this is the 15,524th time they have looped and that she remembers every single repetition. Haruhi closes up the summer activities, and Kyon suffers a more intense moment of déjà vu than before, but still can't think of what to do to make Haruhi satisfied therefore letting the loop continue.
- This episode was the 17th episode broadcast for Season 2, but was the seventh new episode.
- Paranormal phenomena observed: déjà vu and time-loop
- In the scene where the characters are shown exhausted after handing out balloons, Kyon says, "I feel like I just got away from the lead Adzam." This is a reference to a prototype mobile gun battery in the Mobile Suit Gundam world.
