"Hare Hare Yukai" (ハレ晴レユカイ lit. Sunny Sunny Happiness?) is the ending theme to the Japanese anime series The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. The song is performed in Japanese by Aya Hirano, Minori Chihara and Yuko Goto, the respective voices of the characters Haruhi Suzumiya, Yuki Nagato and Mikuru Asahina from the series.

Due to massive support from fans of the series, the CD maxi single, which also featured the song Welcome UNKNOWN plus karaoke versions of both tracks, reached #5 on the Oricon singles charts,[2] and was the 18th best selling CD single in Japan on May 10, the day it was released.[3] It was also sold out on many online retailers and was amazon.co.jp's #1 selling CD.[1] Hare Hare Yukai won the Radio Kansai Award in 2006, a subset of the Animation Kobe Theme Song Award.[4]

The very popular animated choreography accompanying the song, originally broadcast as part of the closing credits, became an Internet meme which inspired many parodies and fanmade videos on the Internet, many of which were posted on video sharing websites such as YouTube.[5] The choreography was based on several singles by the idol group Berryz Kobo, including "Gag 100kaibun Aishite Kudasai", "Special Generation", and "21ji Made no Cinderella".

Voice actors[edit]

Character song singles[edit]

Nine music singles for The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya have been released featuring songs sung by the voice actors of the characters in the anime. These include: the three main female and two main male characters in the series along with four other supporting female characters. The first three released included songs by Aya Hirano as Haruhi Suzumiya, Minori Chihara as Yuki Nagato and Yuko Goto as Mikuru Asahina. Moreover, two additional character CDs were released on December 6, 2006, sung by Yuki Matsuoka as Tsuruya and Natsuko Kuwatani as Ryoko Asakura. Two more character CDs were released on January 24, 2007, sung by Sayaka Aoki as Kyon's Sister[8] and Yuri Shiratori as Emiri Kimidori.[9] Finally, the CDs for Itsuki Koizumi and Kyon were released on February 21, 2007.

Each of the nine albums feature the ending theme song "Hare Hare Yukai". Other than the three main female character's versions which are solo cover versions of the original, there are some alterations. For Tsuruya's version as well as Ryoko's version, the lyrics were changed to fit the character; Tsuruya's version contains her catch phrase "nyoro", while Ryoko reverses the optimistic lyrics to convey futility and destruction. However, while Tsuruya's and Ryoko's versions have the same arrangements as the original version, the last four released have their arrangements changed along with the lyrics. Kyon's Sister's version is very upbeat; Emiri's version is very fact-based; Itsuki's version talks about his ESP; and Kyon reflects about his now-disturbed life in his version.
