Voice actresses Aya Hirano, Minori Chihara, and Yuko Goto reunited once again as the SOS Brigade from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya to perform the anime’s ending theme song “Hare Hare Yukai.” Of course, they also performed the corresponding dance on stage.
This was the first appearance of the SOS Brigade in 11 years. The Animelo Summer 2017 Live is being hosted over the weekend of August 25th.
