The show is based on Haruhi and what she feels, wants, hates, and thinks. The story begins when Haruhi moves to a new high school. There, she meets Kyon and he learns how strange of a girl she is. When they interact, Haruhi states that she feels the world is boring and would be more interesting if it had super natural elements such as aliens, time travelers, and espers. After an important conversation between Haruhi and Kyon, she realizes that she should make a club to fulfill her interests. She forms the SOS Brigade and Kyon soon realizes that the three other members of the club are not what they seem. Kyon experiences the impossible when meeting all three other members; Yuki Nagato, Mikuru Asahina, and Itsuki Koizumi. Kyon is told that Haruhi actually has god- like powers that bend the universe to what her wants and emotions are, but does not know it. It becomes clear that Kyon must work with the rest of the SOS Brigade to keep Haruhi entertained without telling her about her abilities.
