I personally prefer the Airing order because its a part of the Anime story, i was really confused when i first watched this anime becuase i thought "Did the website i download it from number the eps wrong?!" then i noticed it was just a wierdly written story

The Haruhi order doesnt make any sense at all. How the heck can u watch Lone Island Syndrome II first...

My conclusion is that the point of Haruhi's order and the interaction with Kyon is to further reinforce the view that without Kyon, Haruhi would swing wildly out of control, thus the world will be destroyed and remade many times over. With Haruhi selecting and subsequently interacting with Kyon, the human race is able to evolve at a slow, controlled pace and develop both knowledge and supposedly supernatural powers while the laws of physics are obeyed, but subsequently linking up with more discovered laws slowly.

In a nutshell, Kyon is the voice of reason and is correct most of the time but he is useless to the human race without Haruhi. Haruhi on the other hand has great potential for our auto-evolution, but will destroy us and our world without Kyon's help.

Otherwise Haruhi wud juz blow through entire chunks of the laws of physics without any proper connections, possibly creating a horrendously chaotic world. It is already said by Koizumi that huge blue giants cannot exist due to their weight. Thus godzilla cannot exist, but ants CAN carry loads of up to 50 times their body weight. This is the properties of the initial world She has created, and for it to be lost would be a sad thing indeed.

About trust, from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trust_%28sociology%29

Quote:
1. Placement of trust allows actions that otherwise are not possible.

2. If the person in whom trust is placed (trustee) is trustworthy, then the trustor will be better off than if he or she had not trusted. Conversely, if the trustee is not trustworthy, then the trustor will be worse off than if he or she had not trusted.

3. Trust is an action that involves the voluntary placement of resources (physical, financial, intellectual, or temporal) at the disposal of the trustee with no real commitment from the trustee.

4. A time lag exists between the extension of trust and the result of the trusting behavior.
Juz something to ponder abt ^^

Haruhi and Kyon are complementary and necessary for each other... order and chaos. I find it most entertaining to view the show first in aired order (haruhi) and then in timeline order (kyon). Viewed both ways you catch a lot of the nuance as well as the skill of the VAs in showing the relationship growth.

Watch it in airing order first, once, get the gist of it, then watch it again in chronological order. That's what I did.

Same here. I've watched it several times now, though I usually find it hard to forego the big ending accompanied by Mahler (stroke of genius), but it's nice to see the characters and their relationships developing more coherently with the chronological order. They each have their pros and cons; either way's rewarding.

If you watch the series in all possible orders then the true nature of the universe will become clear. However this means watching it 87,178,291,200 times. The only way to do this in your lifetimes is to speed it up about 100,000 times so each permutation of the series is compressed into a blipvert lasting approx 1/40 second. Sadly this will cause you to explode.

The next best thing is to watch it in both orders.

I agree with those who say that you must {grit your teeth and} watch "episode 00" first, since I think the whole point of that episode is misdirection — when I first saw it, like many people I assumed the central character that was being called "Mikuru" within the dorama must in fact be Suzumiya Haruhi, since the whole ep. focussed on her. Only after the (false) credits had rolled did the truth dawn and the true style of the series become clear. Very clever, but a rather overlong joke I felt.

not a overlong joke if u have already read the novels like alot of Japanese hu picked up the series in Japan due to Hirano Aya's live-action commercial did before it was aired. ^^

It IS however overlong for those hu have not already read the novels, which makes most of the world. The popularity of SHnY however shows how alot of ppl manage to make it thru, and were rewarded as a result

The broadcast order is the Kyon order... Your confusion is numbering the Kyon episode order 1-14 (the episodes keep the chronilogical <Haruhi> numbering sequence, they just aired out of sequence).

Kyon (as aired on TV) order: 11, 1, 2, 7, 3, 9, 8, 10, 14, 4, 13, 12, 5, 6

I emphasized "as aired on TV" because that's how it aired, but The Adventures of Mikuru Asashina is the wildcard. It is episode 11, but it was the first episode aired.
The numbering NSW gave you is in the Kyon order (based on the aired episode's sequence) put in the chronilogical (Haruhi) order.

To make it less confusing:

Kyon order/Haruhi order
  • 01 / 11
  • 02 / 01
  • 03 / 02
  • 04 / 07
  • 05 / 03
  • 06 / 09
  • 07 / 08
  • 08 / 10
  • 09 / 14
  • 10 / 04
  • 11 / 13
  • 12 / 12
  • 13 / 05
  • 14 / 06
The episodes are numbered according to the chronilogical (Haruhi) order but were aired out of sequence (Kyon). Does that help?

2, 3, 5, 10, 13, 14, 4, 7, 6, 8, 1, 12, 11, 9.

Close, but you have to remember: the Kyon order is the Haruhi order viewed out of order. To view the eps chronologically, arrange the Kyon order in numerical order (and just ignore the second set of numbers because you're just confusing yourself)

Not sure if anyone else posted this idea, but i think the best order would be showing episode 2 first, so that viewers have an idea of at least whats going on, then showing them in the order they were aired on TV. Because i know for a lot of ppl, just being thrown into episode 1 (00) sorta got them confused and im sure it turned some ppl off, but yet the TV aired order actually makes it much more interesting and makes ppl eager to watch the next episode and try and fill in the gaps.

I know that when i watched it in chronilogical order, i was actually sorta bored with some of the episodes, but when i watched it how they aired it on TV, it was a lot more interesting and attention grabbing.

Just my 2 cents though.

I watched episode 0 first and watched the rest in chronological order. I watched 0 because I thought that it was in the chronological order (just that it was going to have flashbacks). I watched the episodes in chronological order later (when I learned that they were all shuffled) since I like animes that are easy to understand.

However, I would recommend watching it in airing order since it leaves you with a "Ooooh, so that's what happened!" feeling of surprise which isn't bad. Also, the character development and the ending is better that way.

I am totally confused. What is with the Tarantino'd order? I was enjoying the anime a lot at first, but the Baseball episode just confused the hell out of me. Why did they mess up the order like that?

:/

You should read the threads... part of it was just artistic. Kind of like watching a Twilight Zone episode or reading Slaughterhouse Five (Vonnegut).
The time-out-of-sequence imitates the disorientation Kyon feels in this situation.
The other reasons are more mundane.... organizing the events that way leads up to a climax that lesser beings can handle (oooh, monsters! and Kissing! ... the world is returned!).
I found the Kyon order very satisfying for a first view... but when I rewatch it I usually follow the chronological order because I find the "daily life" and that last "rain" episode very pleasant to end out on.
