There's like 4 different episode orders for this show. What's the best order?
>>
You don't watch it at all. Just read the books.
>>
Only watch Endless 8
>>
Read the books while listening to the soundtrack.
>>
You can watch generic LN shit in any order and it wouldn't make a difference.
>>
>>138809466
You have to watch it like how the rest of us watched it. One episode every week and in the order of release.
>>
>>138809714
Oh, and also you have to go back in time to 2006.
>>
>>138809466
Go to a random number generator and watch the corresponding episode

>>138810267

Reverse chronological order except for episodes 4 and 8. 4 goes after 2 and 8 after season 2 ends.

Chronological order. Don't fall for the Kyoani meme. The LNs are in chronological order anyway.
If you can just read them instead of watching the show.

Watch chronological order if your IQ is below 100, if not, broadcast.
Also pace yourself, don't just watch one after the other. Spend at least 10 minutes doing something else inbetween episodes.

>>138814944
>Watch chronological order if your IQ is below 100, if not, broadcast.
You have that backwards only sub 100 IQ retards can't handle a show that doesn't follow the cookie cutter format of having the climax at the end, which Kyoani knew their fan base at the time was mostly comprised of, which is why they had to butcher it.

Don't be a fag watch it in broadcast order, the way its meant to be watched.

>>138809466
Watch it in chronological order.

People who tell you to watch it in broadcast order are trying to recapture something which is impossible to recapture. Basically you have two options:

1. Chronological Order

2. Watch season 1 in broadcast order one episode per week. Now wait three years. Then watch season 1 and 2 in mixed chronological order, again, one episode per week. Then wait another year and watch the movie. Otherwise you're not getting the AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE AS IT WAS INTENDED.

Watch it in chronological order.

There is no real reason to watch it in Broadcast Order, since the finale has a good climax; The finale being Dissappearance.

Anyone who suggest Broadcast order is a lowly usotsuki-kun and really needs to uzendayo.

I think he means that you can watch season 1 chronologically then watch season 2 or watch season 1 and 2 together chronologically. I don't know what the fourth would be.

You either watch season 1 in broadcast order then season 2, or 1 and 2 together in chronological order. Chronological leave you with an anticlimactic ending, but it's up to you how you want to watch it.

You're an idiot.

Chronological order has an ending which flawlessly sets up the movie.

Broadcast increases the complexity and has a more ordered ramping up of experiences. It's also more creative, you get to see something different rather than the same kind of lel supernatural highschool fantasy drama cynical MC that you're probably sick of by now.

Because haruhi really isn't that great, so you should rely on gimmicks.

>>138809466
Broadcast order is so much better to the chronologicalorder, it's ridiculous. The two aren't even comparable.
The best example of this is 'The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Episode 00'. In chronological order, the entire episode is nothing more than a weak punchline to the Sigh arc. You know everything that's going to happen in it, the only addition is Kyon's snarky commentary.
In broadcast order, however, it becomes one of the greatest first episodes in all of anime. The roles of Mikuru, Yuki and Koizumi are loaded with foreshadowing for their true identities. Kyon's narration gives wonderful insight into his character, whilst Haruhi, who has absolutely no presence in the episode before the end, is perfectly introduced by revealing that not only is she the "Ultra Director" responsible for that abomination of a student film - she's proud of it, too.
And I could make cases for the order being perfect for all the episodes of the broadcast version. Ishihara and KyoAni didn't just rearrange the plot for gimmick reasons, they made an effort to create one of the best viewing experiences possible out of the light novel material.

Anyway, the best way to watch Haruhi is to watch season 1 in broadcast order, then wait a week or so, watch season 1 and 2 together in the 2009 chronological order, then watch Disappearance.
>>
Step 1: Watch season one
Step 2: Watch Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody
Step 3: Watch movie
>>
Haruhi is the most overrated garbage that has ever existed on /a/.
>>
>>138809522
holy kek

If you're determined to watch it anyway, do it in the scrambled airing order. The resulting confusion makes it a bit more interesting, it might even create an illusion of depth. In truth, though, it's a pretty mediocre show.

Watch it backwards. Use some sort of encoder to flip the episodes around too so you're not just watching each one forwards in reverse order.

I'm triggered because this is spouted by a lot of retards on /a/, which led me to have way too high expectations for both the series and the movie. It's partially my own fault, of course, knowing how delusional /a/nons can get about their waifu's franchise, but it makes me sad to think that other's might make the same mistake as I did
