The New Season Begins! *Spoiler warning!**

Here's where you get to discuss how totally awesome I am! That's right, a forum devoted to me, Haruhi Suzumiya. Post here a lot, especially if you're an alien, time traveler, esper, or a slider!

They're seriously messing with us now. If it doesn't end next week (or it may have ended this week?) I will stop watching. I can see them putting out 15499 episodes of this crap... It needs to end now.

Ok, so Haruhi 2/5(15 in current showing) aired about an hour and 5 minutes ago.

anyone found a RAW yet?

_______________________________________

So, no raw yet...

But from wandering 2chan a little it looks as if this ep might be
Spoiler:
part 1 of the end... =_=


Also >>this picture<< thought whether it's from the new ep or not is unclear.

Spoiler:
Haruhi has an epic yukata and there's a paper aeroplane theme to the episode... but it would appear the next ep will be ANOTHER endless Eight ep.

Damn... You found it before me. I'd given up by 7 anyway, heh. At least we KNOW there's only one more episode of this left. Too bad there is another... Did it really need 5 episodes for that?

"Hm. Last week could possibly be forgiven for dramatic reasons, with Kyon's failure being even more of a blindside than the week before. But this is definitely taking the ****. Endless Eight is just a short story, and it's almost been given as much airtime as the whole first bloody book."

I read it somewhere. Not completely sure where though. Something about it being the first half of the end. After watching the episode though, I could be wrong... If theres any more I may cry.

Sure you aint thinking about what I suggested on MSN after looking around 4chan?

Anyway, the aeroplane thing was fun but irrelevant to the story. Hopefully next weeks will either be the end... or a completely new rendition of the week at the VERY least.

*sighs* my internet plan is limited enough and these episodes, I hate to admit, are wasting it. Zero re-watch-ability.

Haruhi's problem (in my humble opinion) is that she fell for Kyon 3 years ago the mysterious John Smith

Kyon on the other hand finds Mikuru (Especially after meeting the adult version) stunning, and sociable.

Haruhi is not sociable (probably stunning) unconsciously she's driven Kyon away, yet wants him, but can't bring herself to ask him.

Very complex storyline for a light comedy >being 16 and female is a royal pain.

I wish they would tell the story instead of doing their adaptation of it.. It's becoming annoying and almost boring..

In other news, Endless Eight is still endless. The latest episode, which aired a few hours ago in Japan, does NOT end the arc.

Round and round, the merry go round...

Actually stuff that, we sure as hell are NOT merry. This episode is another waste of time and effort.

I'm not even gonna bother watching this one. Maybe thats what it will take for them to stop this damn arc. Everyone should just stop watching it. Maybe thats the message its trying to get accross with Kyon not doing his homework as the loop will just keep repeating... Breaking the 4th wall! Maybe I'm going crazy with annoyance.

So there should be 12 new episodes (some say 14 if that's so add two to the disappearance totals).

1 was Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody
8 will be endless 8 (I hope not)

That leaves 3 (or 5) for Haruhi to disappear and maybe reappear??

What remains of Haruhi fandom has exploded, the Endless 8 Arc is driving the most committed of fans to posting things that can not be repeated in this PG-13 format..

My question is; are the powers to be in Japan that naive, blissfully stupid or cunningly brilliant?

This abuse of the Haruhi plot line, in my humble opinion, along with the antics that proceeded the Second season will lead to the downing, or fall from grace of the Haruhi Series...

So far we have 5 endless eight episodes, with the animation quality of each getting a bit worse and only a small bit of additional information being added to each one.

Is this what Kadokawa and Kyoto consider as entertainment?

If so I hear Inuyasha is starting a new season.. At least those episodes were predictable although boring, almost as boring as EE 8 is becoming.

The Destruction Of Haruhi

Me thinks this is bordering on the extreme, yet why was it done in the first place if the EE arc is so enjoyable?

This is absolutely HUGE.

Former Kyoani Director’s Thoughts on Endless Eight

Apparently Yamakan told Kyoani they were doing something wrong... and he and Kyoani 'parted ways' soon after. In other words... Season 2 of Haruhi is the result of some EXTREME executive meddling.

And as if this weren't bad enough... we still have no book 10 to keep us interested.

Really... it's gotta be some giant syndicate plotting domination through otaku outrage.

Sounds like what you, Jenny, were describing about Fox, Futurama, and all that executive meddling. The fact that the Director of the original SHNY series is out is a BIG nail in the coffin. Need another MAD to lift the spirits, cos indeed that was a big blow...

one 2chan posts i just came across:

...今回も終わらなかったね。
ほんとに8月末まで繰り返すつもりかな?


According to babel fish, it reads:

Don't you think? this time it did not end. The [ho] it is with to 8 ends of the month the intention kana which is repeated?


Other posts coincide with this one, talking about an 8 week Endless eight arc.

Shami called it, it seems.

Oh how this series has fallen...

2 to go. This series is getting closer to being written off with a rapidly diminishing loss of faith in what the remainder of the season is going to contain. Certainly episodes after EE will be welcome, but forever will this arc be seen by me as a large waste of effort and bad thinking on behalf of Kyo-ani and Kadokawa. DVD sales of the EE arc should show this hopefully, as punishment for putting Haruhi down the toilet for 8 episodes.

I would laugh so hard if this ended in episode seven... when nobody's expecting it to!

Well episode 7 is most likely when Kyon will break the cycle, then episode 8 could be the resolution and aftermath. Hopefully.

I will believe it when I see it, but I certainly will not be laughing.

Why would we need an aftermath? It'd just be a normal first day back at school.

Yeah I guess so, but it could be like every EE episode until the end, until Kyon breaks the cycle, then cue the next episode with the last day of holidays, back to school, etc.

Sadly, it would appear to be the case, Gothlette.

If there's a 'day back' in the arc, It'd probably be tagged onto the end of EE 8, rather than having an entire episode.
