Nigga shut the fuck up. You just need to spend some few hours to finish it.
Most people who watched at the time had to endure two fucking months until it concluded.

>watching the most overrated piece of shit anime in history

Haruhi is objectively a bad show.
>>
>>138770973
>I still don't know what possessed KyoAni to do this.
All we know is that KyoAni refuse to talk about it. So since they refuse to defend the decision, and yet refuse to badmouth it, it strongly implied that this is a decision made by the rights holder, i.e. Kadokawa. Thus it was a bad idea but it was out of their hands. And they will never be able to discuss it to the Press.
>>
>>138770973
They were thinking that their achronological gimmick in the first season went down really well, and that OBVIOUSLY the fans would really appreciate this new gimmick.
>>
>>138770988
Being on /a/ while Endless Eight was going on was a treat.
>>
>>138771407
I think it was to cut budget on the 2nd season and rake in the dosh
>>
>>138771394
You objectively have shit taste
>>
>>138771432
No budget was saved since they redid everything from the animation to the voice acting anyway.
>>
>>138771432
But they animated it differently each time.
>>
>>138771463
>>138771464
What the fug?
Then it was just phenomenally bad direction. I can't even defend it let alone explain it.
>>
>>138771437
The show has no actual plot, there is no story progression, and the characters are static and don't change. If you compare the start of the show with the end of the show, nothing has changed. Even slice of life shows have some type of character growth.

The thing people like most about the shows are the characters because they think they're quirky or cute or whatever the fuck, but they all fall within pretty average stereotypes.

It's only popular, that's all, it's popular. Not good, just popular.
>>
>>138771489
I honestly don't think it's as bad as some people say, that doesn't mean it's not a terrible decision though.
>>
>>138771597
I suppose a case could be made about source material and lack of it.
Maybe they didn't want to make up new material for the anime so had to follow the LN arc to the letter.
>>
>>138771508
>no actual plot
Actually there is. Teenage girl is god, she seek excitement and novelty in her life and a bunch of supernatural beings created by her but also a normal guy have to satisfy it.

>the characters are static and don't change.
Kek. Kyon does a 180 by the end of Disappearance, Haruhi changes from a supernatural obsessed girl to a person who learns to have fun in more normal way (she still seeks supernatural but not because she really want it or believe in it, it's to have fun searching for it with the rest of the Brigade). Koizumi's troubles are established despite him being mysterious. Nagato goes from a seemingly emotionless robot to a fragile being who was screaming for help but wasn't listened to because everyone was too busy. Future Mikuru gave us some insight on Mikuru's character and how she lived the SOS Brigade.

It's like you didn't watch the show. Just watching the Live Alive episode would show you Kyon and Haruhi are way different from ep 1.

>>138771716
Watched the first season, started watching the second, but realized it was still the same thing. So no I didn't finish watching the entire show, and if a show hasn't gotten me by the second season it's not a good show.
>>
>>138771772
Live Alive is in the first season, so missing the character development is just you being retarded I guess. This series is mostly praised for highs like the movie, anyway.
>>
>>138771819
Nope, season one had literally no character growth. It ended on a status quo, if there was a special movie or something that did season 1 differently then that really doesn't count.
>>
Why does she sit like that?
>>
>>138771772

No it wasn't, someone just said the opposite. You can say what you want but in the first season there was no character progression, and there was no plot. There was a setting which, but a setting is not a plot.
>>
>>138772018
There's character progression in the very first arc.
>>
>>138772062
You're aware that character progression means that the characters change right? That they're different at the end from when they started?

You learning more about a characters past is not character progression.

That means that season 3 should be gold when it comes out eventually, right? RIGHT?
>>
Remembered I never finished this anime and started the second season. I gave up at this moment the 4th or 5th time going through basically the same episode.
>>
>>138772215
I'm the OP and currently, finally on VIII. I can safely say that you can pretty much skip every episode between I and VIII. The changes are so minor they can barely be said to exist at all. It's literally all a repeat. I want to die
>>
>>138772018
The show being episodic doesn't mean there's no plot or storyline. Every episode is here to build the characters, foreshadow future events or show the nature of the mysterious stuff Haruhi brings.

>>138772103
Haruhi's delusions get worse until she almost destroys the world for them, she changes her mind at the last second because Kyon shows her there's more than that to life. Kyon stops being that grumpy guy complaining all the time and says he enjoys his life (which also seals the official creation of the Brigade). It happens in a 6 episodes arc which also introduced the setting and the characters, so if you missed it you should start watching with your brains on.
>>
>>138772103
By the end of the first season Haruhi is visibly more playful towards Kyon when at the start she was cold towards him and everyone else.

There was also a plot there, I don't know why you keep saying there isn't. Haruhi is a girl capable of extraordinary things and almost ends up destroying the world.

Anyways you should really see the movie, even if you don't like the series I'm almost positive you'll like it.
>>
>>138769842
I was just discussing this shit with a friend earlier. Can you imagine if another studio tried to do this shit today? Haruhi had a huge fanbase and that endless 8 bullshit pissed so many people off. It was literally 8 weeks of wasted time on nothing content unless you count those little changes in the time line during some episodes as "significant" and they weren't.
>>

Okay, just finished watching the last ep in this arc.
What a disappointment. I was expecting some romance at least. I thought the reason Haruhi wouldn't let time go forward was that she wanted a summer holiday boyfriend or some shit like that. Nope. I can't believe the original broadcast was 2 months of this. What a travesty. I bet /a/ was a real shitstorm when this aired
>>
>>138771379
>100% speed
So, normal speed?
>>
>>138772762
Ahh you got me. I guess it was more +100% speed which would make it 200%.
>>
>>138769842

You don't need to go through all of them, you could watch the first one, one in the middle and the last one of the arc and you wouldn't miss anything.

The lack of this is what makes the series even good.

People who does this are fucking casuals.
Seriously, when people say they've seen Haruhi, you can ask them if they saw all of Endless Eight, and if they did not, they are, without a failure, fucking casuals. Stop being so fucking american and just kill yourself.
>>
>>138772830
Don't fucking do this people.
>>
>>138772921
I say this as someone who read the light novels and then watched the show when it aired. There's literally no reason to watch it 7 times except to see Haruhi in a swimsuit
>>
>>138772863
I dropped it, and I can''t remember if I ever picked it up again. What came after endless eight? The making of the film? I'm not sure I ever got around to watching that...
>>
>>138772830
You'd be missing the whole point of the arc, even if it's a little boring. Entertain yourself by picking out the differences, there's actually a lot of slight changes between the episodes.

Do it for Nagato. Think of how many times she's been through this, you can manage a measly 8 trips through the loop.

And it was the best experience ever on /a/
Endless 8 was an audacious and risky decision from KyoAni/Kadokawa, but it surely created one of the most unique and memorable anime experiences. Not only on /a/ but in japan and the whole world.

And they didn't just decide to do it from nowhere. Remember it's an actual arc from the original novel, and 8 episodes was just a pun with the name. Endless 8, Endless August.

Also it didn't destroy the franchise in any way. The movie was a huge success and even in 2014 when we had Haruhi Hunting, the fanbase was still very strong and the hype was amazing! HH was a big disappointment, though.

ITT: Casual fags who skip endless 8

One of the most important shows on the anime industry, and a show which anyone who calls himself an anime fan should have already watched.

Come on, you guys don't even have to stand 2 months of it and you will never know the real experience and how painful it was. You already failed at life, try not to fail at watching anime, or else just quit living, etc.

No, it was fantastic direction.
But just because something is artistically amazing doesn't mean it's enjoyable.
After all, art does not exist to entertain.
