While I might be wrong, I have a feeling that despite the bad ratings this episode has garnered, the very same people who don't think this particular episode being stellar would still keep on watching the series.

See, that's thing. Something like this tries to make the audience feel what the characters are feeling. But on the otherhand, if they do this 'wrong', they would actually alienate the audience and lose them as a result. But considering not one poster here has mentioned they're dropping the series altogether, while all the while Kyoani/Kadokawa has succeeded in letting them feel the 'pain', might I daresay... mission accomplished?
I don't think it would be fair to drop a series over a single lousy episode especially when the past few have been very good. 3/4 is pretty good for a series. I hate the episode, not the show. It may lower my overall impression of a show, but it would take more than this for me to drop the show. If it repeats again, I would no longer rate the entire series higher than a 7, and one more time would make me quit, etc; this being completely arbitrary depending on my mood.

But if I eventually decide to drop it, this would be one of the reasons. Personally, I don't feel any rage. You could say it made me laugh a little , but for the most part I just don't care. Maybe I care enough to post about this on a forum for now, but that will eventually change. And that may be the worst possible reaction that can be generated-- apathy. If the characters don't care any more, then why should I?

I feel the same way. The way I see it, if it was about making the audience feel what the characters are feeling, two episodes should be enough (even one that would move faster thus fitting in 3-4 time loops in it). But the fact that absolutely nothing that would possibly be of importance in breaking the loop has happened makes me think there will be a really clever untangling in the end. So I share Archon's sentiments - no real anger, I just watch it.

I also think if people take this storyline collectively rather then as seperate episodes. With the exception having speading this out to episodes rather then going in one like some shows with this type of story, it's still following a similar pattern, normal day, then loop, find out their in loop, still loop, this can repeat a couple times, they figure it out and get out of the loop. that aside, yeah there was a loss of animation, but aside from the still shots, I really didn't notice until it was pointed out and I watched the episode a second time.
I didn't watch the first season until the beginning of 2007, so I didn't have to wait the full three years, but I didn't RAAAAAAGE or FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU while watching it. Honestly, I'm just happy to be watching Haruhi again. It's been... a long time.

I can't believe it's almost Thursday again. Unfortunately for me, my internet has been kind of busted since last Thursday. I hope it holds out long enough to download tomorrow's episode. Come to think of it, it stopped working after I torrented the last Endless Eight... Hmm...

If they don't show the solution tonight, everybody will rage.

If they do show the solution tonight, everyone who hasn't read the novel yet will RAGE!

...probably.

I haven't read the novel, and I find your comment intriguing. I can't wait.

To rage.

Holy shit.
If we don't get a conclusion on 10:40 AM EST on Thursday in America, I'm gonna be pissed and give up Haruhi (*cough* temporarily).

Anyway, I just watched the episode. Well, 13 minutes of it.
This only goes from a 1 to 3 because of Sugita's voice acting this time around.

Actually, to put this in as generic terms as possible, it's the act that ends the loop itself that is (kind of) rageworthy, not the intent behind the act, if that makes sense.

I sorta agree with him.

It's kind of a cute twist, but it seriosuly isnt a twist that should be dragged on for four episodes. Building up all that anticipation, and it really isnt that much.

Like if this was only 2 episodes, I'd be like awww. But now that this is 4 or more i'd rage.

Well, prepare to be disappointed and pissed and give up on Haruhi, then. It's currently EDT on the east coast of the US, which means the episode will air there at 11:40am.

The Endless Eight..

It seems that this is just the second variation of episode 2. There are at least 6 more variations, unless you count episode 2 itself. Not bad.. The idea itself is somewhat good but didn't though KyoAni would actually show 8 variations of a single episode as season 2..

god are there any english blogs/posts somewhere that actually try to analyze/discuss the eps instead of just bitch. Iaccepted more from this forum I don't know all i see are pointless posts...

If you think it's shit you're a lazy viewer...

reading this Japanese blog made me more accepting towards the endless 8, but it is boring but not that boring... i mean it's still better than higashi no eden (mad overrated) eps that are after like ep 4, etc.

We;; if yuou can't read japanese at least look at the pictures and try to infer
japanese blog- 4th ep - especiallyt his one.
this go to 16th ep I think
