We already know that while Mikuru has the boobs, Haruhi has the butt since the last Endless Eight.

This episode is Itsuki's fanservice episode.

No complaints about that either.

Spoiler for Fanservice is spoilers:
And about the extent of Haruhi's reset. I wonder if she only resets matter and not time itself. Or are Data Entities totally outside of time and reality of this universe.

How is that symbolism? Something in a series can't be symbolic of something that is potentially happening outside of it's scope and beyond the fourth wall.

Was it just me, or was there an item on Haruhi's list that wasn't crossed off? did anyone catch what it was?

Also Mikuru may have the bigger breasts, but Haruhi has the overall better body

Parallel universes and the multiverse do not work that way. Since the universe is infinite, parallel universes simply occupy the same location in space-time.

I don't see that.

I just see Haruhi thrusting her chest out at every opportunity, while Mikuru sort of hunches over, pulling her chest in and tries to disappear.

She's had it for longer. A quick review of quite a few of the illustrations makes it pretty clear that someone took sir mix allot to heart.


Spoiler for Haruhi:


That is exceptionally...round...and I just noticed that Yuki has her camera pointed directly at Haruhi's ass. Even Imouto seems to be staring at it.

That's because Haruhi is extremely physically active. Give's her a more toned/athletic body...I'm not sure if Mikuru HAS any muscle tone.

If one was to give the both of them full body massages (nothing wrong about that is there?), the body texture for both of them would be respectively described as "Firm" and "soft"...and that would be that mans last words cause everyone would lynch him.

Most Mecha stories do not interest me. I prefer more realistic science fiction stories.

...like one's where NASA stops the alien invasion by having an Iowa Class Battleship and a Space shuttle have a fucked up flipper baby, detonate dozens of atomic weapons to launch it into orbit and then have it shoot nuclear rockets at the enemy mother ship, that shoot lasers when they explode.

Mikuru's main problem is having almost zero self-esteem. I think she'd be pathetic even in zero g.

This isn't the place for this discussion, by the way.

True, this is the sort of thing the ontology thread is supposed to be about.

Could a mod please move these relevant posts there? Thanks.

I had typed up a nice comment about what I liked about this episode n' such, but my computer decided to crash before posting it. So, instead of retyping, I will post something 5000x more meaningful:


KOIZUMI: "I RABU YOU."

Moar like, "May I steal your girlfriend?" (Hilariously, that screencap makes it look like he's blowing into Kyon's ear. AHAHA.)

...I do wonder where people are getting the ItsuKyon vibes from that scene though. I mean, I wear my Slash Goggles with everything I watch and I really just didn't see it. Mayhaps someone can explain?

I see, because Mikuru has traveled to the past, she can become so healthy looking.

If she wasn't a time traveler, she may never grow up as well.

Itsuki loves both Kyon and Haruhi.

Hypnotic avatar is dangerous.

More detailed impressions later, but for now:

-As others have noted, KyoAni seems to have noticed that the fanservice in previous episodes disproportionately featured the female characters, and has taken steps to be more 'equal opportunity' w.r.t. gender.
-The music (especially the piano during the reveal) set the scene excellently. This episode had a distinct 'Twilight Zone' feeling, thanks in no small part to the music.
-I understand to a certain extent why they redid the events of the last episode again, but I wish it could have gone faster.
-If they're willing to take three episodes for this story, imagine how long they'll take for Disappearance, Sighs, or Snow Mountain (they probably won't get to Intrigues).

Putting aside the questions about the author, the entire video is based on an idea (string 'theory') that is becoming discredited (owing to the fact that the 'theory' doesn't make any substantive predictions, has no experimental evidence backing it up, and has failed to account for recent discoveries). See here and here for more.

The idea of the String Theory always had skeptics, but it has continued to progress and recent years unified into the M-Theory.

Its being studied by top scientists like Stephen Hawking and Michio Kaku. Its one of the main reasons why the Large Hadron Collider is built, the LHC itself is needed to do the experiments and proof the String Theory. They haven't have full solid proof because they need the apparatus, which is the LHC.

I like to think it was Gundamized a bit in that regard. Though maybe it's more that Haruhi is one of those rare series by them where the male characters (who do exist in this one) are given equal or perhaps even sometimes more screen time then the female characters and hence the fanservice also comes across as more equal by default.

Though personally I relate more to Itsuki then I do to K-On. The way he says things that are out of the ordinary and smiles like nothing is wrong in order to throw people off reminds me of yours truly.
