It wasn't recommended to me, so I didn't.
At the last episode of Endless Eight, though, I felt that Kyon and Haruhi are the only things keeping the balance of the world — it's like Kyon and Haruhi are conspired to be together by fate to avoid having a universe full of chaos. The fact that Itsuki has been pointing out how important Kyon is for Haruhi's state of mind seems to point to that.

Wait, there's something else in the other six episodes of Endless Eight aside from things repeating for more than 15,000 iterations?

Aside from the SOS Brigade wearing a different set of clothes every episode, nothing that I can recall. There was one episode where the motif was airplanes, like there were numerous shots of airplanes throughout the ep, and I swear I almost believed that airplanes were indeed the answer to the ever repeating cycle

It mostly just builds up the sense of suffering of Yuki for later.

^ I think I understand now why Haruhi fans have wanted the story to continue.
While the anime covers a story of how a normal boy and a quirky girl interact with the universe at the risk of going topsy-turvy on a whim, it somewhat feels too open with Haruhi and Kyon's relationship improving even for a bit during Someday in the Rain.

I think I should watch Disappearance pronto.

Kyoto Animation has amazed many with the announcement painfully few expected – a new iteration of top cockatiel anime Tamako Market is in the works.

It's not up to Kyoto Animation to decide if a new Haruhi season is going to be made, so there's no point in pointing out every time yet another season goes by and they don't announce more Haruhi. If Kadokawa saw it fit to promote the franchise more, they would do so, but there seems little point while the novels are still indefinitely stalled.

I know, it's all Tanigawa fault, I only was trying to say that the 10th Haruhi aniversary will end without any animation... end of manga, no news about the LN, it's a sad aniversary for fans...

So why are the novels stalled? I've never read a good explanation of why.
Did Tanigawa turn prima donna? I can't imagine Kadokawa killing the goose that laid the golden eggs.

^Simply because Tanigawa is taking too long to write them. Laziness is just too strong a word, but it quite defines it. Perhaps he lost interest in writing but I doubt that since he just released Random Numbers.

Either writer's block or he doesn't care about that franchise at this point.

I can take a stab at what it means... to me. I go on anime binges and then long dry-spells, so I didn't watch Haruhi when it came out. I think I saw it in 2008 and then watched the rest as they were released. Wasn't as impressed with Season 2, but I liked the movie.

Basically, I think a lot of school-based anime centers around school life for exceptional people. I think a lot of the anime audience believes they are (and probably are, mostly) above-average to exceptional. I see all of these characters as gifted kid archetypes.

Haruhi, who basically had an existential depression in 5th grade, occasionally would act out in an attempt to find enjoyment in life, but for the most part she was repressed. That is why despite her 'ability' what she always wants to do seems to be childish. It's like now that she has companions, she wants to relive from that point.

Then, you can look at the non-Kyon characters as ones who excel in one field but have variously glaring weaknesses as well.

I would say Yuki is like an autistic mathwiz. Koizumi is more of science (although you can argue for math/science since they are both closely tied.) Mikuru has two exceptional traits. One being her beauty and the other, I would say is history-related (again, there is science to it, but to fit my all-school-subjects theme, time travel is history.)

Kyon is the most exceptional, even beyond Haruhi, to me, because he is philosophical. He looks at things like a writer, so I assign him to "Language" and he manages to be in a group of exceptionals despite having no outward talent.

So, we have then all of these people and Haruhi. Basically, she wants to be unique and she is (irony.) She feels very bored and that nothing is happening despite the fact that everyone is working furiously behind the scenes to make sure everything comes out perfectly. And, of course, everyone seems to have plans for Haruhi, too, if they could ever manage it, except Kyon who is obviously in love with her.

I think it is mainly the interaction of everyone and the unreliable parts. It is true Haruhi is special, but is she what they think? What is the driving force? I think it could just as easily be Kyon that is controlling everything with his mind. Mikuru acts stupidly and weak, but I don't think she is.

There is a lot going on that isn't really expressed. I don't think this anime is extremely deep, but there is enough to keep you busy. I like it a lot because I can understand the point of view of every character because I have parts of all of them (as most people who have allowed themselves to develop should.)

Also, Kyon seems to be the only one with empathy in the whole show. And Haruhi could verywell be bipolar. Many speculations. Everyone wants to say, "She's a tsundere and God, etc." But I think if you look deeper and are interested in undertones, you will see there is a lot of stuff you can wonder, "Is that true?"
