Fun episode, lovely reference to Itano's circus.

Also no matter how many times I've seen it I do find it curious that the characters can respond to Kyon's thoughts.

I don't know, on close examination Haruhi is wearing a shirt with "*69".

The holes in the 69 are stars.

So... I'm wondering if that is intentional... *69 ----> Plot of Endless Eight?

It seems to fit to me. Could they really be that subtle? If so I think it's pretty amazing.

That was a rather... uneventful episode. Visuals were pretty and music was nice, but overall it just felt kinda pointless.

I guess it being a two-parter they're leaving all the relevant events for next week. Which hopefully will make the episode more interesting than part 1.

69... who knew that even Haruhi would do that to us??

Anyway, since I've watched this episode for about the third time, I just noticed that Mikuru has said more to Nagato and Koizumi in two episodes than in the entire 14-episode first season. It's pretty annoying to see Mikuru transfer lines between just Kyon and Haruhi.

I like how this episode gave off a vibe that even though everyone is an "agent" from a faction, they're all civil and friends.

Not just 69.

*69.

Google "Star 69" and suddenly it fits in with the plot of Endless Eight.

We decided to put this kind of number style because:
1) most just want to check stuff related to the new season
2) Using "current" numbers used for this airing season will be even more confusing because we certainly won't create threads for episodes from the old season. Therefore, seeing threads like "Episode 8, Episode 12" out of nowhere wouldn't be exactly anything better.

Excuse me if I sound rude, but why not just use the title?

Because most people don't kown the episodes by title. For the most recents one there ar no problem, if this tread was called "Endless Eight" everyone would know that is the episode 12/02, because it is stiked. However, in few weeks it will not, and not al will know which"Endless Eight" is.

Calling it episode 2 does make a lot more sense in my opinion, but it wouldn't hurt to have the official episode number in brackets or something.

Sorry, but that makes no sense. Are you actually implying that weeks from now people are going to forget which episode is "Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody" (the one with the sticking the papers on the bamboo) or "Endless Eight" (the one that happens at the end of the eighth month, August), but they'll know them as Episode 1 or Episode 2 when there's up to twelve other new episodes that are similarly named?

For what it's worth, "Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody" is a pretty memorable title, along with "Endless Eight", but for the most part I would be more likely to remember an episode by number/sequence than by title. Not all titles are equally memorable, plus the files don't generally have titles in them either. I suppose the ultimate ideal would be to have both number and title (as is a common standard on Japanese p2p), but that's just not the usual way in the English community.

At the end of the day, the way we're listing the episodes here in the forum is consistent with the way we list them on AnimeSuki proper. So, while all the arguments have some merit, we might as well be, at the very least, consistent with our own "parent site".

Actually, one of the older theories on why Haruhi seems to be able to respond to Kyon's thoughts (which could be extended to the rest of the SOS-dan) is that, while he might think he's just snarkily thinking to himself, what's really happening is that he's actually unconsciously saying things out loud.

Wow, i loved it. It's really well made. I thought the upbeat of the music wasn't going to get nice in the piano, but you nailed it.

So, Kyon is crazy then? And it's strange, because Kyon never reacts like "wow, she's reading my mind?" or something like that. It's really strange.

Speaking one's mind out loud doesn't really mean he's crazy -- a few of my friends do it in their unguarded moments too -- it's just that it's one of the more likely theories out there. Discounting the possibility that Haruhi might have an empathic link with Kyon (which might go some ways to explain why she seems to be able to read Kyon's mind), it doesn't really explain why everyone else can reply to Kyon's musings as well.
