For those of you who have read or watched The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and the subsequent novels, manga, and anime, you know about her domineering personality, and her love of the super-natural.  Now, some of those hard core fans have created their own religion: Haruhiism, and the followers of this new religion are called Haruhiists. 

The followers of Haruhiism have broken themselves down into seven subgroups: Zen Haruhiists, Orthodox Haruhiists, Kyon Haruhiists, Coptic Haruhiists, Messianic Haruhiists, Eve Haruhiists, and finally Beveraginist Haruhiists.  

The descriptions of each sect of Haruhiism could be construed as offensive by MANY religions, however, if you wish to read about each sect, you may do so here:, however,  we'll cover some of the basics.

Haruhistic Commandments:

Some examples of the Haruhistic Commandments include:
  • Thou Shalt not be Bored
  • Thou Shalt be a Lolicon
  • Thou Shalt not tell the goddess she is a god
  • Thou Shalt Observe the Sabbath aka The day a new anime episode is released.

5 times every day, Haruhiists preform the highly popular Hare Hare Yukai, which is the ending theme to the anime. However, members are not allowed to pronounce the name of the dance.

Holidays and The Spreading of the Word

Haruhiists celebrate Almsgiving, a day when they give Haruhi-related items to the world. Such as bootlegging Haruhi episodes so those who cannot afford the DVD's to watch them.

The members of Haruhiism have a declaration of faith, "There is no god but Haruhi and Nagaru Tanigawa is Her prophet." For those of you who don't know, Tanigawa was the man who created The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

In the Middle East, a group of children carried signs bearing the slogan stop killing children and Haruhi's image, in an attempt for peace, and to spread the word of Haruhi. 

Haruhiism is rivaled by Kyonism, Kyon is another character in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.
*As far as the books/manga/anime go, I highly recommend it, but please pay attention to the age warning.
