Ha! All of you who are complaining about the episode just need to see this in slow-motion, obviously:



Some of its flair is lost from compression, but hey, it's not like I could ever capture the extent of the CLASSINESS Koizumi exudes, anyways.

Haha. Agreed. Itsuki is gorgeous and charming. I can imagine most girls here wouldn't mind dating him at all. ^_^

Perhaps the nuts at koyani want us to understand the torcher that Yuki feels having to do the same things over and over, and watching Kyon fail to do what he needs to at the end over and over

I...don't know what to think. It was painful to watch as I was scraping dearly for what little new material there was, and somehow I made it to the end of the ep. It must've been the new outfits...Haruhi in one piece dresses throughout most of the episode was too good to pass up.

Like I said in the other thread... even if they show this another 15,499 times, it'll still be the best series ever to me. Regardless of what other people say, I wasn't bored by this episode at all.

We should just be happy they didn't start at the 1st loop and show each one.

hmmm i feel pretty let down by this episode...

but if kyoani is trying to have the viewer experience the same amount of boredom and hopelessness as yuki...then they are doing a very good job. And this could be seen as artistic in one sense...

I could likewise say that since I did enjoy this episode that anyone who didn't do so was because they mind was too limited to fully appreciate the depth of the episode's message. I wouldn't because that would be as flawed an assumption as your friends.
Indeed, personal attacks are silly to use in arguing things. I hate it when people say "How can people like this? I can't comprehend why people would like this drivel. An average person (who isn't a loser) wouldn't like it~" because it's a small step above just outright calling people stupid without a good reason. Likewise, even if I don't like said art, it doesn't always mean I can't comprehend it; I do comprehend it but don't like it.

It goes without saying that taking one's time to insult people for having no lives in a internet forum is well... very silly, considering there's a whole group of people think the something similar about watching anime in general.

Oh, and to go off tangent, here's for a wacky, unsubstantiated, and stupid interpretation of this episode/art from me that came up when i was drunk (aka turn on sarcasm detectors):
Spoiler:


P.S. Anime is serious buisness, apparently. And true while my above writing is pretty much nonsense, I find that more useful then just raging over some drawings.

I am not familiar with the novels, but that would actually make more sense than anything I just said. I suppose they really like to keep a strict adherence to the source material; anime-original (known to some as filler when source material runs out) stuff tends to get hated on a lot.

Look at it this way. They used ONE vol. to create a whole season. I don't think Kyoani wants to make another 8 seasons on the next 8 while waiting out Vol. 10. It's not very intelligent.

Even if it could, it wouldn't simply because, Haruhi is successful for five things:

1. Novelty
2. The otaku factor
3. The fact that Kyoani has other (KEY?) projects.
4. Mikuru's a moeblob like Nagisa and the whole of K-on.
5. Yuki, the woobie. Don't believe me??
Quote:
A genuine woobie is Yuki Nagato, actually. Starting at and especially in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Especially No.3, since that's like a proven formula.

Yuki's not in the list?? Well, I suppose to the people that I've shown Haruhi to, Mikuru tends to win their hearts... or something.

Moeblob isn't always a positive term.
Yuki's a woobie,

Totally different. But Yuki's better.

Ah thanks, tvtropes is awesome. I wasn't really referring to Yuki as a moeblob; was just thinking about the reasons why Haruhi was successful (should have quoted the entire list)

Though I think you might have forgotten one reason-- the crazy animation quality all of kyoani works tend to have. Yea, I know it wasn't meant to be exhaustive, but I tend to blab on about it.

Hm. I never thought of Yuki as a major reason for Haruhi's success, it was more of a personal reason, than a popular one.

But guess what? I'll add it.
