>>
Didn't we already have this thread

It doesn't matter. However, my OPINION is that it should be watched broadcast order, since haruhi is not that good, and you need to stack the gimmicks up for it to be interesting.
>>
>>138831803
I'd say if you're in to moe crap sure...

If not than no.. Choice is yours.
>>
Let's ask the experts.
>>
Chronological. Any other way is stupid and doesn't make sense for first time viewers!
>>
Chronological
But skip the 2009 episodes since they're shit
>>
>>138831803
Broadcast order is better because you get the fun of figuring out how the story unfolds yourself and trying to guess what happens (happened) next.

On the other hand, the literal climax scene of the chronological order is the main character buying an air conditioner. If you watch it in chronological order you'll be bored as hell, trust me on this.
>>
>>138832634
Actually the climax is the movie, so it works.

>>138831803
It's worth it, do whatever order you want but be sure to start with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0fxQfszEcI

>>138832314

>skip 2009

Don't skip Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody, though. The movie wouldn't make sense without it.

Read the LN.

>>138832757
this should be considered a filler episode, why do people recommend watching it first?

back when I first watched Haruhi (three years ago), I watched this episode first and nearly dropped it because of how silly and retarded it seemed.
>>
why do we get one of these threads every day
>>
Chronological (2009) order, while only watching the first, second and last episodes of Endless Eight.
>>
>>138833662
It's a unique way to be introduced to the series, there's some nice foreshadowing in it

you clearly don't understand the show...

>>138835380
Why is Quiet yelling like that?
>>
>>138831803
Broadcast order, first season only. Totally worth it. Not worth building up much expectations for - the impact the show made had a lot to do with the specific time it came out.

If you're really itching for more afterwards, try chronological order (both seasons). If rewatching all the episodes bothers you, skip the second season entirely. It's only really worth it if you're enough of a fan that you were going to rewatch it all anyway.
>>
>>138836697
>only talks about seasons
Movie was a much bigger hit
>>
>>138832634
The chronological climax is the movie, so fuck you.
Anybody who likes prefers the 2006 broadcast either pretends to live on that year or thinks artificial confusion is good. Baccano and Durarara were writtne in that way, but Haruhi wasn't so watching it some other than chronological makes you lose a lot (eg. the character development of Haruhi, one of the most important moments being related picture (which happens on an episode you are telling to skip entirely)).

>>138833848
Nope, it was in the novels.

is it still worth watching if I already know that haruhi is god or something?
>>
>>138838998
It is not a plot twist
>>
>>138839554
Ok, cool. I always saw it in spoiler threads, I didn't know if it was actually a big deal or not.
>>
>>138839554
Well, it kind of is, but its revealed in like episode 2
>>
>>138831803
Seriously, what the fuck is this show about? It looks like slice of life anime to me but it's praised so much.
>>
>>138839649
it's slice of life anime but with a twist, the twist being the main girl is basically god and can contol reality but she isn't aware of it. only people who are aware are her friends who include a timetraveller, an alien and an esper. so basically they do slice of life stuff but really they're trying to damage control all the stuff that haruhi is doing

i just got finished watching the series and the movie and i enjoyed it a lot. i've been off anime since maybe 2009? but got back into it recently.
>>
>>138839649
It's praised for good writing, self-awareness and subtle development, some part are weaker but they build characters and foreshadow future stuff
>>
>>138836789
Is it really that good? It seems to me that the fanbase is cancer I watched the first five episodes five years ago, and it didn't leave any great impression on me. i drop it because it didn't captivate me in any way, besides you need a god damn instructions manual to watch it.
>>
>>138839649
You had to be there in 2006-2008.
You missed the boat.
>>
>>138842088
Fanbase was cancer because it was extremely mainstream at the time. Movie is great, I can't tell if you'll like the series or not though, it's a polarizing anime.
>>
>>138842186
Good enough, can I watch only the movie?

It's better to watch the series first to have better understanding of the characters. If you really don't want to, you should at least know the premise and have watched first ep of season 2 (Bamboo Leaf Syndrom).
It's only 22 episodes long if you skip Endless Eight so I'd watch it if I were you, unless you can't stomach SoLs.
>>
>>138831803
You're supposed to watch it in broadcast order, or else the show will be pretty anticlimatic
>>
>>138842399
Really? It has 8 chapters of the same shit? What?
Well I'm downloading it, anyway.

Of course I don't know that's why I'm here, you're only making the series look more pretentious and the fanbase more cancerous. But thanks for clearing that out.

You mean the fanbase or the 8 episode shit? Well at least i know why it's called the "Endless Eight".

Should I download this one:

https://bakabt.me/torrent/159144/suzumiya-haruhi-no-yuuutsu-the-melancholy-of-haruhi-suzumiya-bd-1080p-delicio-us

Or the 720 version?
>>
>>138843691
It was made in 2006 Anon, 720p is already an upscale.
>>
>>138844240
OK, thank you, downloading right now.

read the ln senpai, then wait for volume 12 like the rest of us
