Its good that theres people who didn't enjoy episode 1 but still watched and enjoyed episode 2. But the effect is totally different, without fully understanding the brilliance of episode 1, you miss a large portion of the story. Its one of the reasons why some people who have followed the show find the show confusing and hard to understand.

Why can't people see the brilliance and importance of episode 1? I'm sure those who understood episode 1 would rank it as one of the best, if not the best episode so far.
this haruhi's way of weeding the exciting special people from the boring normal ones

if they are turned off by ep 1, haruhi don't need them.

Please have a look at the purpose of this thread.

Your question "Why can't people see what's happening in episode 1" isn't something that can be answered based on facts. While it may be a valid point of discussion, this thread isn't the place to do it.

Plus, the recent discussion has been centered around the posts from Kaioshin_Sama, which in all honesty in the context of this thread (and I must say, in the context of this forum), should be just treated as flame-bait or trolling. All I can do is suggest everyone stop replying and posting concerning the comments made. If someone doesn't like the show, fine, but it has nothing to do with the Q & A thread.

If there are further posts of this nature, they are going to be deleted since they are off-topic.

Well, if you don't enjoy the scatter-shot way that KyoAni is releasing the episodes, you're perfectly welcome to store the fansubs until the entire show has been released and then watch them in the correct order.

No one is forcing you to watch the show out of order after all ^_^

Most likely a homage to the original novel, since the novel also featured non-linear story arrangements (see here).

I'd just watch the anime in the order that they're aired. If you watch them in the correct chronological order, you'll end up finishing the main story halfway through and stuck with a bunch of filler stories.

But will it make sense to me if I watch it that way as sometimes it takes a bit longer for me to figure out that the hell is going on?

That's a question nobody knows the answer to atm since the story has not been fully presented yet... I will try to watch the series in Haruhi order and see how it goes.

only way for you to truly understand it, is to look to the source. The novels.

That's something only you can answer. The show's half way over... has it made sense thus far? If you can't figure it out from watching the next episode previews, then maybe storing up the episodes isn't such a bad idea.

Personally I think most people in these forums would argue you'd be better off watching it in the method the creator's had intedned... but that's up to your personal preferences.

So far I watched all the fansubbed ones in chronological order, which is kinda weird...well anyway it made sense so far. I guess I'll go and watch them in the "normal" order as you suggested. Thanks!!!

The best way is to put all episodes in windows media player and turn on 'shuffle' function.(you can do it with other video players as long as they can mess up the orders)
I do that everytime a new episode is out(of course, after watching the latest first)

Second Season?!?

This snippet in another forum really got me exited:

"...And clearly it was not the “last” episode as was intended in the number count.(Oh, KyoAni is so doing a second season, the sneaky bastards.)"...

Question is, can someone verify?

Well, I think the opinion here is quite divided. Some of us think that it is indeed a hint, others say that kyoani doesnt have time for another Haruhi season yet, they are busy with other new anime.

But personally I think theres a high chance for a 2nd season, as the show is very popular and theres enough material in the novels for at least 2 more seasons.

So far the anime has revealed one alien and that is Yuki.

But there are other aliens in the novels, we will see one in episode 10.

I don't really understand that quote, but the last anime episode (timeline wise) is "Someday in the Rain", which sets the limit of the anime coverage to late November in the novel (any events occuring after that, such as December's Shoushitsu, Snow Mountain trip, etc. and beyond, are out of the picture). The director (Ishihara Tatsuya) himself confirmed that "Someday in the Rain" is indeed the final episode in the timeline series, so we know that the season is definitely ending with 14 episodes.

As for a second season, that's definitely a possibility. The "ending" of this season was quite open ended (then again, every story in the novel was open ended), so a second season featuring Shoushitsu (maybe even Inbou) as its main is perfectly plausible.

But possible or not, it's not going to happen anytime soon. With the Kanon remake coming up in Fall and lasting 2-cours (24-26 episodes) (Kanon will also be using key staff members from Haruhi, such as the director), Kyoani's probably not going to have the resources to work on a "Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu Season 2" anytime soon. Like I mentioned in another post, if they're going to announce something, they'll most likely do it at the end of broadcast (like JC Staff did with the Shana movie) (it'll be funny if they do announce a Haruhi movie though, 2007 will become an Itou Noizi movie festival ^^; ). Otherwise, you probably won't hear anything about Haruhi again until Kanon's nearing it's end (early 2007), if at all.
