Oh lol. I have to admit, KyoAni are master trolls.

Despite my inability to actually watch the episodes anymore, I have to admit they are the only ones with the gall to do this to their viewers. So… 5 episodes down, another three more to go I guess.

Quite matches what I heard earlier that Aya Hirano or one of the seiyuus mentioning about how they just finished recording for the Endless Eight arc, ROFL.

    Unlike most others, I’m indifferent. I speculated early on that it’d be eight episodes if the title was correct, since I know the general idea of what goes on then.

    So yeah, I’ll just wait. I’m not even the slightest bit annoyed…yet.

    I’ve only watched the 1st two ones of this annoying arc. Just waiting this thing to finish.

    Oh my god, now they’ve done it. I’m just laughing. This is great, I don’t know why they are doing this, but this is great. It’s so ridiculous it’s great

    Don’t blame this solely on KyoAni. Kadokawa has a lot to do with this too…

    At least they’re reanimating and rerecording everything.

    It’s not like these aren’t new episodes, and this one actually had a few new scenes.

    @jopchan121: but in the end its kyoani that does the animations, and selling out to kadokawa was their most profitable and exploitable scheme

    I imagine to buy the DVD for endless eight, but i´ll pay for 1 episode instead of 5 or 6(..7,..8….)

    Well, 10/10 for guts, but do they honestly think this is entertainment? Or are they secretly in a contest with Hideaki Anno for “who can get the most hate mail” ?

    @Hamster I dont think this is supposed to be entertainment at the moment, i think this arc is a brave and interesting one. It really boggles the mind to imagine the world really repeating itself that many times and nagoto knowingly along with it. I am glad KyoAni are doing this, it will certainly be memorable and it gives a real emphasis on the scene where kyon realizes if he lets haruhi go everything will happen again.

    No shit, I’m passed being annoyed and am now amused. They’d better have a nice conclusion waiting at the end of all that.

    “Endless Eight” actually means Endless August (Since in Japanese, 八月 (August) literally means the “8th month”.

    I bet my money that it ends next week.

    I always wonder how this arcs somehow resembled the concept of the Higurashi games, but used the idea so much worse by stopping almost all story development after the 2nd episode.
    But after reading these comments how funny this all became I can finally see the connection:

    “At the first time, I do my best to try again
    against the inevitable tragedy.

    In the second time, I become disgusted
    towards the inevitable tragedy.

    The third time, disgust is overwhelmed into painfulness.
    But by the seventh time, this all becomes a farce comedy.”
    (Translated version of one of the poems only presente in the games by the “narrator”)

    She just got the number wrong :P

    If this goes on we really need a “Shrew the Audience Anno Memorial Award” for KyoAni ^^

    stop trying to compare kyoani to anno.

    kyoani are merely “god tier” trolls, while anno himself is an “anno tier” troll. he’s so far above god tier it’s scary.

  16. Kaisos Said,

    Exactly. While this is trolling at its finest, Anno and Eva will forever be above everyone else in terms of trolling.

    Im sick with the never-ending Endless Eight. That’s why Im stucked on episode 2 dammit.

    If I ever had to Marathon Endless eight, I’m not sure I could make it though.

    This arc is only tolerable with baby steps. Although, I am anxious to see what happens in the end so I will be continuing it.

    hmm, yeah, its somewhat annoying, but ive grown to like it and whatnot, but episode 5.. it shows what haruhi wants to do, theres just too many hints in it.. if you havent figured it out, look harder, or got back to school and play I-spy more. ._.
