The Hare Hare Yukai Dance (a.k.a Haruhi dance) is a MAD video meme based on the ending theme from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya[1], a popular anime series about an eccentric high school girl and her mystery investigation club, SOS brigade. Due to its immense popularity, the cutesy dance outro became somewhat of an internet meme in both Japan and overseas.


The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is based on the popular manga (of the same title), which itself is inspired by a series of light novels written by Nagaru Tanigawa. Since its breakout in 2003, the original “high school/adventure” fiction has been adapted into four separate manga series, five video games, a TV anime adaptation and two web exclusive animations.


Pilot episode of the TV anime series first aired in April 2006. Soon, fans began sharing MAD videos and parody versions of the outro dance, some even arranged tribute performances via 2channel. Eventually, both the anime series and the ending theme gained “mementum” among anime/cosplay fans overseas. The number of derivatives multiplied, featuring other anime/manga/videogame characters as well as the contributors themselves.
