So, you're saying that he reminds you of just how FABULOUS you are?

Boy-Love imageries completely intentional.

The idea is to skirt the boundary of suggestion but not crossing it. What a good, otaku approved animator does is to (use volleyball analogy) set up the ball and let the (doujin) fans hit it themselves. Now how many copies of an Endless Summer doujinshi featuring a shirtless Kyon and a open shirt Itsuki on the cover do you think will sell?

Comiket comes this August. Talk about riding the viral publicity.....

I really like how there's two discussions ITT:

1. Haruhi's boobs/Waifuuuu/fanservice crap
2. The String Theory


thank you, Japan.

Mikuru seems like she's the only one who hasn't had the deja vu feeling or that she's even aware that the days are repeating until she doesn't get a response from the future.
Does that have to do with the fact that she's a time traveler or what? Or that Haruhi isn't "familiar" with Mikuru?

*cough* And another case where Mikuru seems like the only one in the group who's helpless and can't do much.

Mikuru doesn't tell anyone about the kinsoku jikou because its kinsoku jikou. She did check back with the kinsoku jikou to find out what kinsoku jikou is happening. She double checked with the kinsoku jikou in the end and found that the kinsoku jikou really can't be connected. Her fears of a kinsoku jikou really happened, that's why she gathered everyone that night.

She has deja vus like the others, but because its a kinsoku jikou, she has to keep quiet. But still in the end she realised that its useless, and that she can never return to the future, she confirms that a kinsoku jikou has taken place.

So actually she's the one who realised the truth of the entire kinsoku jikou, the others only have a hunch and have no real idea what's happening.

Of course not counting Yuki.

Methinks more like thank you to all those involved with SHnY. Maybe a mod could suggest another series that continuously spawns such a wide range of thread topics (the ontology thread is awesome) because I haven't run across any yet in my limited travels.

(Anyone who'd like a layman's guide to string theory should check out Nova's three parter "The Elegant Universe")

Given her competitive nature, I think it's only natural that Haruhi "reset" her bust size to more favorably match up to Mikuru.

Wow. That ending really is kind of a shocking swerve.

TAKE THAT NOVEL READERS!

By the way, there was one thing about the animation that really bugged me: eyebrows over hair.

One of my pet peeves.

Is that right Skane? And here I thought I remembered that you liked catgirls from your days back in the channel.

This episode managed to raise certain feelings in me I wasn't expecting until much later in the season, and that is truly an impressive feat. However, the knowledge that I'll have to struggle through a similar episode next week kills the rating.
7/10

. . . Ahem? The Great Goddess is not some object you can claim. While the thought of people wanting to put their arms around her may be disconcerting, please treat her with the dignity and respect she rightfully deserves.

It might just be me, but I think the jazz background music in the cafe during both Endless Eights is possibly based on some of the new BGM?

This Ep is amazingly good. So many nice screen that i probably will have to rewatch the whole Ep again later.

The screen where Haruhi give Mikuru's permission to wear that frog suit.... I have to rewatched like ten times seeing how godly cute Haruhi is. Then when they fell asleep next to each other.... that screen were just so adorable.

More detail comments will be on after rewatching this EP. But yeah, just finished Higurashi Rei Ep 3 yesterday and.....
Spoiler for Higurashi Rei Ep 3:

Well it isn't the first time this was compared to Higurashi... probably won't be the last time, either

@wittyusername: Oi!!! put that into spoiler =D

Actually Higurashi and Haruhi were so different in my mind that i categorized them into two sections clearly(so can't really compare these two). Can only related one to another


On another note, i think all of these Haruhiism start to get back into me, i feel uncomfortable to address Haruhi without any honorific.....
