  1. In 2006, Kadokawa/KyoAni didn't know how big the series would be. Thus they prepared 14 episodes and aired them achronologically.

  17.  
  18. Each episode had a preview for it except the first episode, so when it came time to release the DVDs, Kadokawa released them in 8 volumes mostly chronologically:

  21. 2 - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya I/II

  25. 6 - Lone Island Syndrome (First/Final)
  26. 7 - Live a Live/The Day of Sagittarius
  27. 8 - Someday in the Rain
  28.  
  29. (Mikuru's Adventure fits in before Live a Live (11th chronologically))
  30.  
  31. Bandai kept the same episode order on their discs, but also sold a LE that kept the original broadcast order.
  32.  
  33. When they decided they were to put a significant story as a movie, they realized that they had to air the remaining stories before it, but they couldn't air any that occur after it.
  34.  
  35. 2009 order: (new episodes with * around them)/(no next episode previews)
  36. *1 - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya I

  63. 28 - Someday in the Rain
  64. Movie: ***The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya***
  65.  
  66. Kadokawa couldn't re-release the 2006 episodes again on DVD, so they released the following episodes on DVD in 2009:
  67. 1 - Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody
  68. 2 - Endless Eight I/II
  69. 3 - Endless Eight III/IV
  70. 4 - Endless Eight V/VI
  71. 5 - Endless Eight VII/VIII
  72. 6 - The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya I/II
  73. 7 - The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya III/IV
  74. 8 - The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya V
  75.  
  76. Of course Bandai kept the same episode order on their release. Thus if you wanted to watch the 2009 order on DVDs, you'd have to keep switching discs. Thankfully Kadokawa released the 2009 order on the BD-Box, thus proving that's the proper order to watch it in. Crunchyroll has both seasons (as well as the spinoffs Haruhi-chan and Churuya-san) available for streaming, but they've separated the two as "Season 1" (in broadcast order) and "Season 2" (in 2009 DVD order), thus confusing even more. So this is why we have to ask "Are you going to watch the movie?" and "How are you watching it?" so that we can advise best. Thanks for reading this text dump.
