There are a lot of things we will probably notice that we didn't before...that might be part of the fun of this arc. Also people noticed her having and then not having the contact in during those scenes in the movie...we just didn't know she'd had them in earlier, then not, then later, I guess. Or Haruhi is being Haruhi...and maybe about to almost get Kyon killed.

I agree. It's getting noticeable. Last I checked (which was only a few hours ago), the Episode 10 thread had fewer views than all other Haruhi 2009 threads, and had fewer posts than all but two of them. And, Episode 10 was way behind most of the other Haruhi 2009 episode threads in both views and posts.

To me, the most logical answer is that EE has driven some fans away. Mostly, it's driven EE critics away - a lot of the people that were critiquing EE on the older episode threads are gone now. About the only critics left, really, are you, Takamura, Akka, and myself (apologies if I'm missing anybody). Well, Kaisos was very critical of EE at times, in full credit to him, but he's been less so since it ended.

I have two caveats.

My first caveat is that EE didn't really start to hurt until episode 4 or 5. In fact, IIRC, episode 5 was the peak point for Haruhi interest so far this year. Right now, it looks like that's when a lot of people dropped off, and many haven't bothered to come back.

My second caveat is that the art style change has exacerbated the issue. I think that more people would have come back if not for the art style change.



Anyway, I'll be watching the sub at some point tomorrow, and writing up a blog review for the episode.

Really?

I just think that E8 was an easy target for trolls. Now that its over, they all just went back under their respective bridges.

Anyway, this was just another set-up episode. The crazy stuff should start happening next episode.

Maybe it was all the talk of Sighs being a boring arc drove them away before it started since it wasn't Endless Eight, and thus not controversial (or troll worthy, however you want to look at it).

I think they are missing out...so far I've been amused by this arc.

Episode 10 was Ok - a decent watch. I gave it 8/10. This episode looks to have better artwork, so it's probably going to be a 9/10 for me.

So, yeah, I'd agree with you that they're missing out with this arc.

Yeah, this episode kept me entertained more than Sigh I did. Not sure why, but I guess it had more humorous moments. I couldn't help but laugh again watching Haruhi walk to the train station with her tune...I forgot what it's called, someone said it. It was more the way she sounded doing it that was funny.

For me, school is starting again in a few weeks. Preparations are in swing. As a result, the real world is taking up my time as it rightfully should now.

I believe Haruhi will shove them into Mikuru's eyes after dragging her into the woods at the last moment just before Kyon shoots her using the Mikuru Beam.

Boy, episode 00 look silly and funny when you watch it.

It's only after watching this that you begin to realize how cruel it was to Mikuru.

Well it is pretty much that people talk more when they want to complain than when they want to praise something. So E8 toppled with the fact that Sighs isn't the most attractive of the Haruhi novels... turns into this. (Some posters may be exhausted of posting about this series by now as well after th endless rage in E8)


If it is an OK episode without anything to really complain about nor praise at the same time, you'll get less activity. I've fa;;en into this category and I have less of a desire to check these threads now.

Jebus Chist, I get the feeling that Haruhi literally just pushed those contacts into Mikuru's eyes! Urrrrgh...

I normally don't empathise much with Mikuru (moe-blob that she is) but jeeze, constant eye-stinging, arrrgh...

This week's art-style is fantastic!

Even if they don't post there are still a lot of people following the series (like truly yours) so there's nothing to worry. All the universe for Haruhi and stuff

Personally I liked the episode. The series is at its best when it is about the character interaction and exposition of their personalities. Sigh's is as good as I remember it. Yes, I enjoyed Sigh's. Take that, you bunch of negative people.

Saw somewhere a comment that "Endless Eight was less boring than this" and I thought, hey, wait a moment, the thing about Haruhi is that even when nothing overly supernatural or weirdshit is going on it's still interesting.

Its pretty true for me. I know EE has ended but somehow i can't seem to find the interest to pick it up again. The priority for haruhi has been dropped pretty low for me. Below needless, saki and knights in the knightmare(game) among other things.

I think all of Mikuru's blinking this episode was enough to make up for the stare!eyes every character has had lately. Also the background characters moved. Which is good.

And not many horribly deformed hands! Still a lot of funny faces, but instead of Kyon making them, this episode it was Mikuru. I don't normally like Mikuru too much, but her headdesk was pretty awesome. But ohgodhereyes

I think the animation for this episode was closer to Clannad After Story than K-ON. Still a few instances of the dreaded baleen teeth, but everyone had properly formed limbs. Also there was a plot. That definitely helps to differentiate from K-ON.

The part at the end when Haruhi stopped the indirect kiss thing between Kyon and Mikuru... Man, this show has changed what I consider to be a cute, OTP-filled moment. If I didn't obsess over this series I'd probably watch things and think stuff along the lines of "aww, look, they kissed. How cute." But in Haruhi, it's more like "aww, look, she was kind of a bitch and stopped him from drinking from her slightly abused cosplay doll's drink to avoid an indirect kiss, because apparently everyone is in the seventh grade. OTP HEARTHEARTHEART."

Still waiting for the MIKURU BEEEEAM

Watching this episode, I remember when I started hating Haruhi (the character) when I was reading Sighs, when she stole Kyon's Drink that Mikuru offered him, my 1st though t was "what a Bitch!".

This episode was alright, overall better then last weeks but not enough Yuki for me :P lol... well she did block all those bullets, I don't expect anything less.
