Like what if this is a puzzle where the fans have to combine all available knowledge of this show, from the original novels, to the TV episodes, YouTube episodes, etc., and come up with a solution to this hidden puzzle and post it at some website? KyoAni, monitoring all the fansites, see the solution was finally posted and only then break out of the loop?

Wouldn't we all think that such an unannounced interactive game between the series and the fans to be just brilliant?
Odds of that being the real answer are as high as the possibility of the next loop being a To Love Ru crossover, I'd say. No, these things had to be animated with months of anticipation. It's not as easy as you are proposing.

A little OOT, but the 4th iteration took such a beating because it made Yuki lose the K from her name. It had the worst and most repetitive art. Also it was the point that most realized that this stunt will take very long and most of us just snapped and remembered all the stunts that Kadokawa and KyoAni have pulled in the past.

About that DVD information: is that genuine? If so...I mean, who would buy such a thing? I mean, even for an otaku, wouldn't having all these 5 and 1/7 DVDs in your collection be an object of shame and derision? If you let anyone see that you had bought it, you might as well meet them wearing a "I am a tool" badge.

Have you purposely left out the reactions of people like me who are still liking it and are having fun? Seriously, more Haruhi is better than no Haruhi.

But you sure didn't forget to post about it. Interesting.

If I knew that the whole season is going to be like this... I rather not have them air Haruhi at all, so we keep our sanity and not having to watch the same old crap over again so Kyoto Animation can focus on making better anime than Endless Eight crap.

No offense to anyone who likes Haruhi...

I don't know why you'd be surprised. Besides it being the point many finally gave up, it had some rather atrocious animation mistakes. Episode 4 was worse but this was the breaking point for many.

I hear that Colombian drug lords are trying to take these 'new' Haruhi episodes and ground them into a fine powder. Given how they somehow enable some people to actually enjoy endless repetition, the sense is that these Haruhi episodes must be made of some good stuff...

Haruhi... the new crack cocaine.

  • Kyon goes Rambo on the fireworks.
  • Of course, the ENDLESS yukata shop.
  • Kyon practicing the I love you line in the stargazing scene.
  • And, of course, the most epic cafe deja vu scene yet.
Still, there are some things I may have missed. Off to sleep...
You missed Haruhi and the hula hoop, the two sleep scenes of Kyon with his hands on his butt, however the "Endless" might refer to the book store across from the yukata shop.

That end scene: break out your 3D glasses for that one!

This thought has occurred to me as well, though more along the lines of, I could see how one might enjoy Endless Eight if one were high. I had a roommate who liked to "smoke" and he could find basically anything entertaining.

Oh, and by the way, I found something interesting. Here's some information on Kyoani's main studio

zip:611-0002
32,OSeto,Kohata,Uji-shi,Kyoto-fu,Japan
TEL +81-774-33-1130
FAX +81-774-33-5162

More information can be found here

Also, a blog detailing how to get there and a bird's-eye-view of the studio.

Now, I don't imagine there are many people in Kyoto in an English forum, but if there were...Well, in any case, if you have access to a fax you can use for free, you might think of some creative things to do. One might say this would only annoy the secretary who receives the faxes, but as far as I'm concerned he or she and all 67 employees of Kyoani are complicit in this. Complicit I say, complicit!

I can still bet that there are fanboys who still have a small ounce of respect for these episodes because of an animated, curvy girl in a swimsuit. Sick and tired of this.

Also who's the one responsible? KyoAni or Kadokawa? I'm a bit confused on that.
the only responsible for endless eight is kyon,i gona change my nickname for what kyon is now the worst lead anime character.well only kouta-kun is worst.
i expect what kyon pay for be a bag of crap.

An exclusive IMAX showing of slow motion Kyon chasing after Haruhi! In cinemas NOW.

Just randomly commenting, I don't even bother watching the end of these episodes anymore. ._.

Perhaps such getting high is also the explanation behind what caused Endless Eight in the first place... Here's an edited version of AfroMan's "Because I got high"....


I was gonna make something new
until I got high.
I was gonna get up and write a
script, but then I got high.

My arc is still endless
and I know why.
(why man?) Yeah, heyy!
Cause I got high
Cause I got high
Cause I got high!

La da da da da da, Da Daaaa

Haruhi was back in class before
I got high.
Arc coulda ended and she coulda passed
but I got high.

She's not in class right now
and I know why.
(why man?) Yeah, heyy!
Cause I got high
Cause I got high
Cause I got high!

Rather a badly-camouflaged jab at KyoAni, I think.

I have a hard time swallowing he could really be naive enough to believe nobody would repost the info. So I tend to think he KNEW someone would repost the info, but just acted to play the good guy.
Not that KyoAni didn't deserve the jab, though.

I didn't even bother to catch the stream this time. Not that I don't like Haruhi anymore but this stunt made me realise I shouldn't waste my time watching essentially the same thing again.

Back to sleep.

Ummmmm.....so anyone have any guesses on which art style they are finally going to settle on for the rest of the season if there are any other stories or do you think it's going to keep rotating?

Which is like saying one of your limbs getting amputated is better than having both of them blown off. Just trying to be objective here. I'm not particularly butt hurt about any of this. Mostly amused.

And I take it that endless 8 didn't end again
