…and finally done at 15,532.

Suzumiya Haruhi

Phew! Endless Eight finally ends at exactly eight episodes. I have got to say, that was rather a big collective sigh expressed throughout the world, from the cast itself to all the fans and including me.

I really didn’t sit through it all, mostly skimming past the last 4-5 episodes and even this final loop had me in my bed around the 10 minute mark for a short nap before I could finish it, and finish it I did. Good riddance there, KyoAni. But I’ll still salute you guys for having the biggest gall ever to pull this shit off us all. Now they’d better do Disappearance before the collective pent-up wrath of the fan base engulfs them. I seriously wouldn’t mind seeing shy, dere-dere Nagato animated.

    “ughh… Kyon-kun, 100 point deduction”

    x15,532-1 loops.

    I knew the solution would be something as stupid as Kyon’s homework but god… it finally ended…

    Good riddance, indeed. The problem is that it’s the Disappearance that should have been alloted 8 episodes, not this.

    They’ve ruined so much the season that even if they do it right when animating the Disappearance the side effects of this… experiment? blunder? stunt? whatever, will probably take a toll on it

    Am I the only one who actually enjoyed this episode?
    I mean… despite the fact that it’s been done 7 times before this… This is still Haruhi we’re talking about. And it still has that… Haruhi-ness to it.

    I’ve got to admit. I have respect for Kyo Ani’s professional level of trolling.

    You know, if we really get Disappearance now, I´ll do it like Kyon and Koizumi and behave like it never happened…
    But at first comes Sigh… And a bitting Yuki is fine, too!

    People still keep saying that =_=

    Given that only five new episodes remain I am fervently praying that they aren’t doing the Sighs in order to make way for Disappearance.

    Ah, and people keep posting that Disappearance won’t be this season. This is a great way to keep fans raging. xD

    I think episode 1, 2, and 8 would’ve made a great Endless Eight. I did like the last episode except for the first half which was smashed against my face seven times already.

    Each episode had nice effects such as sound and camera angles to make it special. Other said Endless Eight would’ve been great in the point of view of others, but the novel was purely in Kyon’s PoV. Anyone else’s PoV would’ve been hard to pull off.

    Since the new airing of Haruhi is done chronologically, chances are that Disappearance Arc wont be animated, since in the novel, Endless Eight comes after Disappearance. My theory is that the next episodes will be related to the Snow Mountain Syndrome, or better yet, introduce the 4 new characters from the novel, like Kyon’s old friend Sasaki

    Speculation is based on the fact that if the anime will follow the timeline of the novel

    If it’s done chronogically, the next episodes will be the second volume, Sighs, aka “The Making of Asahina Mikuru’s Adventure Episode 00”

    Just wonderful. Take a popular, mainstream hit and backwater it by making it an experimental title. Lain and Tehxnolyze are terrific, but don’t have a lot of replay value, so they’re relegated to the “watch once every 10 years” shelf in the basement.

    Still, I’d rather have to slog my way through Mahoromatic (yuck) and Jin, King of Bandits (ralph!!), than watch this crap again.

    Thanks, Kyo, I won’t be buying this one. You just saved me 200 bucks.

    I enjoyed the first episode, I was okay with the second episode, and I enjoyed this episode. Why couldn’t they have just kept it at that and not have the middle episode repeat 6 times?

    Why the writers didnt end that pain after 2 episodes ?…well regular animes would do that but we are talking about “The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi” :))))
    i didnt enjoy BUT i will never forget that experience until i die :)
    because of that that anime is unique for me
