Ah, well it's definitely not him. I guess I'm more referring to whether or not it was done by someone who wanted to make it look like something an amateur like Kyon could have done, rather than something completely out of an amateur editor's league.

And who's to say they'd need ninja skills? They could just dope Kyon up with something to keep him asleep while they worked. The Organization probably has a pharmacy of drugs up their collective sleeve.
I never said it need ninja skils. Is just was the image that comes to my mind when I read Roger Rambo's post. Mori isn't even a ninja to beging with it. Haruhi-chan is not canon.

This is posible too. However, why the end is so well done then? Even a professonal needs time to do things well. So, whoever it was, made everything in a hurry, so is understandable was is crappy.

hmm, I do like the idea of a Disappearance movie. It would be suitably meta for KyoAni to do this right after the brigade finishes their in-anime movie as well. It would also be an okay conclusion to the Haruhi anime, as Kyon ends the story on a reflective note and a positive outlook on the future.

I don't know if they'll ever make it as far as book 9 or later in the anime, but I'd like them to. So many long-running anime and manga are full of filler. Aside from a few lesser quality short stories Haruhi is a dynamic series that doesn't pander or drag. It could easily continue as an anime until Tanigawa concludes the story (let's hope he doesn't try to drag it too!).

Alternate answer: Time travel. Kyon finished it later and then sent himself, Mikuru, or maybe Mikuru(BIG) herself back to load the finished version onto the computer while Kyon and Haruhi slept (together).

I've always thought it would be somewhere along those lines as well... Kyon from the future.

Yuki could have done it, but I can't help but think she would have made the special effects a bit less cheesy while still being plausible for a no-budget film.
Well, the really big question is whether Kyon's narration in Episode 00 is part of the movie. If he didn't actually edit it, well, then either he's narrating the movie as part of his role as series narrator, or whoever/whatever edited the movie had a fake (but really accurate!) Kyon narrate it...

Ah, so then, Future Kyon might have narrated the movie. If there is any canon support for saying that Kyon's narration was part of the edited movie, then actually, this becomes plausible...

Forgive me if this is outside episode discussion, but I have a dilemma: I downloaded the episode from Mazui, which I thought would be the sub but it has no subs. This is the second week this has happened. I would think it was just that they were only releasing the raws in the first place, and I'm the only person expecting otherwise, but last week the Mazui subbed episode was already up on various streaming sites when I tried loading the file, so apparently it was available. So, what am I doing wrong?

Subs were really late this week o_0

Anyway this was an amazing episode, alot of really good moments. Every time Shamisen talked was hilarious. xD

I was kind of hoping they would end the episode with the Brigade sitting in the projector room just before they watch the preview, so it would follow on directly into the next episode (Episode 00), but oh well.

One of the main things I loved about this episode was hearing the different groups theories about Haruhi, as well as the whole 'Don't trust what everyone else says' thing :P That's always been one of the most interesting aspects of the series to me (I'd forgotten it started in the Sighs storyline).

Great Episode in all areas for me. Though it's a bit sad that it's the end for now (probably). I'm really hoping they bring out Disappearance for this December!

And the bizarre answers:
A) Thanks to Haruhi's subconscious will, all the Kyons of all the iterations of Endless Eight were dreaming about parts of this movie, thus turning Kyon into a one-man CG rendering farm, in the theory that if she chained enough monkeys Kyons to typewriters she'd get all the works of Shakespeare her movie.

B) It all was a collective dream of Haruhi and Kyon, where they dreamed they were editing the movie, and it really happened thanks to Haruhi's reality-warping.

C) Haruhi's reality-warping powers trapped them both in region of spacetime where the flow of time is significantly slower than the outside world (maybe the clubroom was accelerated to within a tiny fraction of the speed of light,) giving them enough time to edit the movie. They don't remember because they reverted back to regular spacetime upon Haruhi completing the stock disclaimer.

Great episode.

The prologue at the end was a little jarring though... if they were going for the feel that the first season ended on... then they missed the mark a bit.

*prays for something in December* (but understands if nothing happens, kami-sama has better things to do)

Yep, that's Haruhi. Managed to be distracted even when there was a huge explosion and debris falling from the sky...and possibly the kid in shock from the event.

Kind of weird that she's the reality warper...she missed everything. Or at least it doesn't click even if she notices...like the cherry trees blooming...in October/November. But then, as she said, otherwise it would be too easy, having everyone at her fingertips already. But they are Haruhi, they just don't want you to know for their own various reasons...and the hope you won't destroy the universe.

Yay, they finally got to my favorite part of Sigh! I love that cat.

Oh, the cafe scene. Same cafe, same table, there's only four of them, and Kyon still sits on the sidelines. Even when Haruhi's not there, she's there...in their heads mwahaha. Also, whenever Koizumi and Kyon were on screen together, I kept wanting to smash their heads together so they'd start making out. =/ I have no idea where this urge is coming from. I don't even like them as a couple. I like listening to them talk, but I think it's just because I'm tired.

Tsuruya was in the shadows when Mikuru was talking to Kyon about not trusting Koizumi. Dunno why I mentioned it, just thought it was worth mentioning. XD

*nyao*

Warrior lulz.

Check your codecs. This happened to me for a bit, which was solved by reinstalling my codecs (I use CCCP).

lol awkward smiling part epilogue, even though it wasn't made clear that this was after Melancholy and not Sigh.

YAY more Yuki biting Mikuru fanservice.

and Koizumi's big foreshadow reveal, although I was thinking about sliders when he was talking to Kyon.

the lighting and illusion of this episode was epic, I actually believed that the rain was actually on the windows and the lighting with Kyon's conversation with all the Brigade members excluding Haruhi was well done.

This is the best episode of anything I've seen in a long time.

This really got me back in the mood for Haruhi. But, uh, yeah...

Best parts were easily the cat and the Generic Fantasy guys, and everything after the Deep Space Sky shot... but the episode as a whole was amazing.

10/10

IT'S PERFECTO

I wasn't really being serious about the Organization training their staff in the art of ninjitsu, you know.

While I really liked Sighs, I don't think that I'd want it to be spread out over eight episodes. Five is definitely enough, imo.
Oh, I agree. Five episodes is the perfect length (Though you could maybe consider the next episode to be Sighs Part VI if you wanted to - it would sort of fit with the arc's unconvential nature, I suppose, with the climax arguably being in Part IV). I was just lamenting the fact that Sighs passed in the blink of an eye while Endless Eight was closer to... I dunno, 595 years.

Quote:
If this arc repeats another 7 times before the ending airs, i swear i will hunt you down


And I'd deserve that considering how amazing Sighs V was. I'm too lazy to do a complete breakdown of the episode, I'll save that for Triple, but a review would basically consist of me praising every second of the episode. The subterfuge and turmoil between the opposing factions was as engrossing as ever, Haruhi's "I'll help too" was touching (Even if it was undone seconds later with her not helping at all ), the absurdity of Kyon engaging in intellectual discourse with a cat actually had me laughing, the sky at 16:54 was beautiful (Even though I'm not sure why it turned from a normal night sky into something like that in a matter of seconds, it was like the ending of Rockin' Kats or something), and it was even educational with that bit about the passenger pigeons. I didn't even notice Tsuruya in the shadows, I thought that was Nagato at first. Must've been sitting at the wrong angle.

Anyway, great episode. I like how Sighs I was incredibly simple, almost plain, and built up to something like this. Hope Kyoto continues linking the episodes to reality somehow and starts Disappearance along with the third cour on December 18th.
