How do I watch this show? More specifically, what is the most optimal way to watch this show for the greatest experience. To my knowledge, there are several different ways: S1 broadcast order > S2 > Movie; S1 chronlogical order > S2 > Movie; True chronological order with S1 mixed with S2 > Movie. Hell, there's probably some more ways I don't even know. On top of that, I read that there are some repeating episodes in S2 that you don't even need to watch.
>S1 chronlogical order > S2 > Movie
Here is your awnser anon.
For the endless eight, you could try to watch it if you can stomach it, or you could just watch the first and last episode of it.
Broadcast order is arranged by order of importance, and chronological order destroys the development structures for little to no gain. Best stick with the original. The second season is mostly just advertisement for the film, and may be freely skipped.
>and may be freely skipped.
>skipping bamboo leaf rhapsody
Don't do this OP. And watch at least a couple E8 episodes + the last one.
>Broadcast order is literally pointless.
No it's not? Unless you want the climax of the show in the 3rd fucking episode.
DON'T WORRY OP
I did a pastebin about this!: http://pastebin.com/xZvJLnpR

Aaaaand, if you want a constant Haruhi thread, consider visiting us on the Haruhi general at /c/
I still say that Endless Eight has a decent pay off not only within the season, but it also does favor to the movie when you know more about the bullshit Yuki has to go through.
Broadcast order works from a narrative/storytelling perspective. It also evens out the conflicts and climaxes.
It is optional, but I think I prefer the broadcast order, since the first 6 episodes of Haruhi, chronologically, were kinda big compared to the rest of the story. SO it made more sense to spread it out.
The broadcast order was also one of the reasons why the anime did so well when it did back in 2007.
Broadcast order(Kyon's narration) always.
Don't listen to the chronological order fags. They never experienced the show back when it was aired on TV. They only bother binge watching or marathoning the show for the sake of finishing it.
Thats also a good idea because the quality of the 2006 episodes are far better than the 2009 episodes. The 2009 episodes may look better on a technical level, but they lack the heart and soul of the 2006 episodes.
Also. Haruhichan is kinda soulless. Much like the Yuki anime. But Nyoron is always great.
>what is the most optimal way to watch this show for the greatest experience
28 episodes from 2009 > Haruhi-chan > Movie > Yuki-chan
Play the VN.
Then read the novels or the manga.
but the best episode is from the 2009 anime
Your opinion is probably correct but this is the best 2006 episode.
Yes, but nothing is going to come out of it. They're only doing the 28 episodes, not Disappearance, and it's on some NHK satellite channel so it's guaranteed they're not going to pull a 2009 on us again. This is literally pointless.
