So I'm watching the Endless Eight for the first time (slowpoke, I know) and I'm on the last episode, having started just earlier today. Why did the producers think this was a good idea?
>>
because you touch yourself at night
>>
Because they thought the elevens would buy it anyways, which they did. I guess to save money, but Kyoani animated them all separately anyway so they only saved on concept work and storyboarding and stuff, not animation.
>>
I think that disappearance was meant to be in s2 but it got pulled at the last minute to to be made into a movie. So I'm guessing it was meant to take up 5-6 episodes and they had nothing else to run at that time.
>>
It illustrates the endless recursion, doesn't it?

In any case it was a riot to be on /a/ when this was airing. Oh boy.

It's one of those mysteries for the ages OP. If you suspected "this must have been the stupidest most rage enducing shit ever while airing week to week", yes, you are right.

Perhaps one of the craziest / most rage-filled times I've ever seen on /a/. There were nips smashing their Haruhi merchandise in protest on 2ch too.

I'm kind of surprised people don't still hate KyoAni for this and think Disappearance atoned for it all. To me, no it didn't, because they are not just reruns, they actually went and re-animated each one of the E8s separately, just a huge waste of resources and time better spent advancing through the material. E8 should have been 2-3, maybe 4 eps absolute max.

And last summary. /a/ was very much under stockholm syndrome by this point and was glad for it to be over.

If you think the way people talked back then / the way this image was assembled looks kind of cancerous, that's because old /a/ was actually like that.

Because it could be done really well. By repeating the same series of events eight times, the line between fiction and reality is blurred. Instead of being just an observer of the show, the viewer is also stuck in an endless recursion of time. It creates genuine empathy for the characters. We feel the same frustration Kyon feels when he fails to end the time loop so many times, and this just makes it that much more powerful and triumphant when he finally succeeds.

The repeating of scenes also makes you notice a lot more over the course of E8. There's a ton of nuance in the way characters interact in the arc that's never really shown in the spotlight, it's up to the viewer to catch onto it. From an analytical perspective, they picked the perfect episode to repeat: there's a lot to contemplate or examine in the episode because there's so much that's just left open or only hinted at, such as Koizumi's jealousy of Kyon, or more often, Yuki's suffering.

As for why KyoAni did it, one theory is that it was a sort of "tryout" for who would direct Disappearance: each episode was directed in a different way. This also made the whole arc a lot more interesting, with the animators and directors experimenting with various shots, motifs, lighting and shading in their episodes. The visual direction was superb if only for this reason.

In the original novel they just did it all in one go, no repeats... I wish they did that in the show.

Honest answer:
Because Haruhi fans are hipsters. They think that watching the same episode over and over again is cool. KyoAni milked them
>>
To this day I still think that Endless Eight is the only interesting thing that's been done with the medium.

How did Haruhi stay mentally sane

And why did Homura become insane??

In any case it was a riot to be on /a/ when this was airing. Oh boy.

This.
After an entire summer of the same episode again and again, with only minor changes, the viewers felt the same relief that Kyon, Koizumi, Nagato, and Mizuki did when the loop finally ended.
>>
>>135562486

The fun is in the seven new episodes the endless eight took up.

Imagine if the LN was like that where you just read the same shit 8x. It would have killed the series.
>>
There were scenes of Dissappearence in the OP. Maybe they planned to have it as part of season 2 and needed to fill the missing episodes.

Although I like Haruhi, I was glad Endless 8 happened. It killed haruhism. We should all be thankful.

Anon who taught you math? You deserve an apology from them.

You're supposed to notice the change in someone's personality and general outlook. Because it is directly related to the events in the movie.
>>
>>135562592
With Disappearance turning into a movie, they had nothing to fill 8 episodes with and no time to adapt new material, so they made something interesting.
>>
>>135561352
honestly it's really good and adds a lot to the series as a whole

anyone who dislikes it has either shit taste or shit patience

>>135562626
Homura and Nagato remembered everything, everyone else had déjà vu. Also Nagato recreated a world without Haruhi.

They had plenty of stories out that could have been adapted.

Snow Mountain Syndrome
Love at First Sight
Where did the Cat go
The Melancholy of Mikuru Asahina
Or even a new original story like Someday in the Rain

All would have been better than what was basically the same episode 7 times too many.

They had a lot to fill 8 episodes with, don't pretend otherwise.

Endless Eight is a modern day experimental piece of art.
Disappearance is a modern day anime masterpiece.

Anyone who disagrees is a plebian and can go suck a dick to wash off his shit taste.

The fact that no one else pointed out your shitty image shows how /a/ has declined.
