What would you do if S3 was announced tomorrow?
Run around the house screaming, then >>141695644
I've never understood what was considered to be unique or well-done in the TV series. Anyone care to explain?
Kyon you smug fuck
Kyon deserves to be smug since Haruhi went ponytail for him.
>dying of inoperable brain cancer
>I'll never see season 3 or a Kyouko spinoff anime
Can't you wait until friday? I've to be outside all day tomorrow.
But I'd be glad if it happened anyway, at least I lived long enough to see it.
It was novice for it's time.
It was pioneering in LN adaptations, random episodes order and in using "school club room" setting. Mix of SoL elements and sci-fi is still unique too.
Kyon's witty remarks and storytelling made a show for me so did Haruhi's ambitiousness. Those mysteries about who is the true God, theories, characters shenanigans were pretty fun to look at.
Also Koizumi is the best girl.
It's nothing special nowadays because a lot of other anime have basically coped it and the concept of a cynical fuck as a protagonist have been done over and over. It was kind of new at the time. Not only that, the concept of one of the characters unknowingly being God was also kind of cool at the time. It blew up in Japan because of this.
Looking back on it, it's kind of mediocre.
Now, the movie, on the other hand, is arguably the best animated movie of all time and is nothing short of a masterpiece.
And of course forgetting that the movie's value is inherently tied somewhat to that of the show due to leaning so heavily upon it. It is not a movie that can be taken as a standalone piece.
Has there been an anime since 2006 that was able to make you fall in love with it the way Haruhi did?
>finished rewatching endless eight
And I don't even regret it.
Am I the only one who actually legitimately liked this arc?
I always liked how many layers there were, though you don't get as many with the show as in the novels. You can take it as a parody of different genres, like with Remote Island Syndrome. There are also parodies of different mediums, like The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya, and of basic tropes. For example, Mikuru is an obvious play on moe/"sex sells", with the implication that it'll become more prevalent in the future. You can also enjoy it for playing those things straight, though; it's clever.
It has a lot of real scientific and philosophical concepts, so it's fun to dissect. For example, Mikuru's explanation of the nature of time is similar to our understanding of how time actually flows. Yuki gets into metaphysics, and math becomes something significant to the plot. It's interesting.
As a story, there are a lot of different parts to latch onto. What is Haruhi? What are the goals of these factions? What do the things they spout mean for the story at hand? Is this all happening because they want to appease Haruhi, or is she causing it? Is it both? Kyon's snark is clever, too. I like the allusion he makes--Sigmund Freud, Sisyphus, Shakespeare, Dragon Quest. The prose might not be colorful, but it's quite dense. It's interesting from a literary standpoint, as well. Haruhi wants so bad to see interesting things, and she refuses to give up, but she's learning to find joy in regular things. Kyon wants to live an ordinary life and move on, but he finds himself in so many interesting things. It really makes you think about your outlook on life, especially in The Melancholy and The Disappearance.
I haven't read The Surprise yet (buying English books; sixth one no longer exists, apparently), but from what I know about it, it seems to be doing all these things: childhood friend, alternate timelines, alternative interpretations of the world and spear counterparts.
/gush. I hope I don't sound too stupid.
All of 4chan really, that was back when pretty much the whole site still watched anime.
WOULD YOU RATHER:
Haruhi Suzumiya gets a live-action, feature-length, fully westernized adaptation that has good localization, treats the story and characters well, and is just an over-all well made movie, BUT with no season 3 in the foreseeable future.
Have a season 3 in the foreseeable future but with character redesigns similar to pic related, and less adherence to the source material including edgy moments of teenage angst, less comedy, and an over-all darker, more serious tone.
You may only choose one.
I would enjoy a live-action film. I'm looking forward to KimiUso. It seems like mostly shoujo manga gets live-action adaptations because of the types of stories popular with girls, but I think a film based on The Melancholy would be phenomenal. I wouldn't mind it being western, though a Japanese one would be first, if only because they'd probably change the names.
The first book could easily fit in a feature length film. Hell, the first book is covered by 6 episodes, that's like, a little less than 2 and a half hours, and that's without cutting out shit that western audiences wouldn't get and is largely unnecessary to the story anyways.

Thank you. I'm glad at least one person thought I didn't sound like a delusional fanboy.
I want so bad to talk about it in my literature class, but I'm far too embarrassed. It's the one book I'd really love to have a long talk about. Maybe I should just write a literary critique or something.
i made a thread about that last night, no responses
if kyon fucks haruhi and she likes it a lot, the world might be an infinite loop of kyon and haruhi's first day fucking
i would watch the shit out of that
Once I realized it was literally the same dialogue for the vast majority of it I just jumped around from episode to episode to make sure I didn't miss anything. Cleared all 8 episodes in like an hour.
>Yuki catches on
>sneaks a webcam into the room every day to watch
>finds ways to influence their sex acts by indirectly letting kyon know to do different things
>the series looks like it never gets back on track because of Yuki's new addiction
>eventually Yuki sneaks into the room to watch
>kyon decides not to fuck haruhi
>haruhi loops the day wishing kyon would have fucked her
Rarely are there better times to post this.
Quality post. 10/10.
Chuckle, because of all the people who still think Haruhi was the best shit ever aren't going to shutup about it. And that when it airs, learn that it wasn't actually all that great.
Watch the endless eight again.
>write a few novels
>one of them becomes the literal most popular thing in the world at it's time for this medium
>at the peak of its popularity you just stop writing
>fuck off on hiatus for a decade
He can't still be making money off haruhi royalties is he?
He's also probably smug because he got a Haruhi back even if it's not his Haruhi.
There's also that incredible sense of achievement by that point in the movie even if he's only just started unfucking things.
I don't honestly know what I'd do? I'd be happy for one thing. I first watched haruhi as a girl but after the accident I was only able to watch it as a man from then on. I still don't know quite how I feel about it from this point of view but whatever the case I'll always love Haruhi as if she were real again. I miss those lazy days in the woods hunting with my anime friends. One day I plan on going back and honestly don't care how many miles of land are burned. I'm going back and I'm going to embrace my original form to the very end. I'll live my life the way I was meant to live it.
>never showed Kyon's reaction
It was on purpose, and they did it very carefully in every E8 episode.
>“Shall I give it a try instead?”
>I had no way of seeing the look on my face at that moment, since I didn’t have a mirror handy. However, Koizumi could.
There's a large contingent of people dedicated to convincing the world that the Haruhi series is dead and buried.
It's kind of funny how seriously they take it (second topic):
While it's certainly true that it's been a while between drinks, my time with Black Lagoon has conditioned me to accept how slow and lazy Japanese creators can be. You could perhaps say that it's on hiatus but since there has been absolutely nothing other than a content drought to suggest an actual conclusion to the franchise I don't see why they'd be so hung up on it.
Also, did he seriously try to bump on Wikipedia?
>Trying to bump a section on a wiki
Wow, what a faggot.
>Didn't notice this post before
>Scrolls back up
It's a funny now but when I'm next I'm not going to remember you and I'm not even going to share my love. What are you even? I can't believe you're actually people the way you are saying things about others. We are all human in our own way and judging from your posts I don't even know if your a demon or even worse. I'm over this world and its people.
Fuck you, you had the perfect Umineko reference and you threw it away
