Though... I think I'm not alone in thinking that the 'Solution' to Endless Eight also happens to be perfect material for bad porn doujinshi. Since, y'know, Haruhi's really waiting for Kyon to 'stick in' any excuse to end the loop.

Egads, that's just soo corny.

WTF you ignored my hilarious joke... Do you want me to explain it is because the series is called the MELANCHOLY of Haruhi Suzumiya ????????

Both of those jokes are just so horrible. Wow this thread is going nowhere fast.

Let us return to the topic at hand...

As long as they animate Disappearance before the end of this year, I don't care how many versions of Endless Eight we get. However, if they are going to do 8+ eps of it, I hope they'll include some anime only activities to spice it up.

A sinister part of me is hoping that the next ep isn't ending Endless Eight either.

Now that'd be ballsy.

Maybe they are trying to make us feel how Yuki is feeling. Watching the same thing over and over and over again....(no wonder she snapped in Desember. I'm at my limit after 3 episodes, and she'd watch this for over 500 years )

I gave the episode a one. Sad considering how good episode 3 was.

It didn't cover new ground, and it was a chore to watch everything they did in episode 3 all over again.

This was a good opportunity to either end the arc and/or show us something new. This is lazy writing and none of the scenes excited me. There was a lot of still images in the episode.

But then again, that doesn't really tell us anything of value. The Animation Directors for all of these new Haruhi episodes also did some of the episodes of K-On. Futoshi Nishiya did episode 2 of K-On, and Mariko Takahashi did episodes 3 & 8. Plus, the person who directed the animation of last week's episode also directed the animation of first new Haruhi episode this season (which, if I recall, people didn't really like?). So... guilt by association in this case doesn't mean all that much.
Ok, so what I gathered from this is that each episode of E8 so far has had a different animation director. No surprise there, comparing the last two. Question is, how many animation directors does KyoAni have access to for Haruhi? Answer that and we may have the answer to how long this will last. And if so, I personally don't have a problem with it. Having each of their x directors do a version of E8 so that they're different from each other in a less obvious way is a pretty cool idea.

Well, if you count the amount of people who worked as Animation Directors in K-On, I guess that'd make seven. But if you were asking about Episode Directors who worked on K-On, I guess there'd be... eight! Duh-duh-DUM.... (I was really hoping there'd be eight animation directors, though. )

Anyway, yeah, each episode had a different episode director/storyboard artist and animation director, although this version and the last one shared the same writer (which may explain the similarities?).

Geez, you're not the one having to go through it 14499 times, so why are you complaining?

bad ending again?, cripes, I think they're going for an even 15500 times, I think the still shots were there to throw you off, to make you think they're allowing time for a successful conclusion, or they used most of the budget for this episode on Itsuki's interesting dive into the pool. I also hope that these are all counted as technically one episode. What some said could be right, that this is not truly season 2, the true season 2 is yet to come. I hope I'm wrong though.

Eh, I guess this is the "original source material" effect... I suppose I can't know for sure how I'd have reacted if I didn't know the way the original story ran, but I would likely be at least a bit more forgiving...

Yes, I understand the decision, and yes, it does work to get me more involved with how the characters are feeling... it just seems like they're idling away valuable time while they're at it.

That is definitely NOT a reason to vote for more than 8. People should vote on the episode as they see fit, not because "its KyoAni", Jesus, or the 3 Stooges. By that line of thinking, I'd vote 10 for a can of poop if it was KyoAni authorized

I gave the episode a "7" as a standalone score... mostly because I was unsatisfied with the animation quality. I'll save my overall score for the series to decide whether I thought the multi-episode arc was a good idea or not.

I really, honestly, want to see Kyon break down into a cry of "I'M IN DESPAIR! THIS SUMMER WITHOUT ENDING HAS LEFT ME IN DESPAIR!"

Partially because we were robbed of Sugita Tomokazu doing it during that episode of Zoku Zetsubou Sensei... and also because it would be hilarious.

wow just watched Mazui's sub... this episode is almost exactly the same text wise, everything they've said is almost a repeat of episode 13.

To me this felt like a wasted episode, if you wanted to see the new animation for this episode go ahead, apart from that don't watch this episode period.

There are no significant changes, except Yuki being interested at looking through the telescope, being a alien created humanoid with almost near inifinite knowledge I'd figure she wouldn't care but she must be THAT bored to check it out.

I was expecting at least a couple of significant new lines of text added, like
