If they had just aired this as a second season, this idea would never have worked, because a second season has to have its own sense of flow. So now we see why they "cancelled" the second season, and instead "rebooted" the franchise -- somebody had this very bright idea. I think this is the sort of thing that only this franchise can do (most people don't dare take these sorts of creative risks), so I'm very pleasantly surprised.
Honestly speaking, I find this ridiculous.

This one totally lacked the dramatic impact of the second, maybe it's because we (the viewers) have seen it but I do not think that is the reason. It's like this part had a different director altogether.

With the lack in dramatic impact, everything was stale. (No Koizumi moment, no Kyon awesome deja vu moments etc) Really stale. Yes, it's the 15,499th time (or at least 3rd time for us).

I really think they're trolling us for the fun of it.

(Who wants to go and set one up Kyoani?)
