Going to start watching Haruhi Suzumiya soon; what is going on with the chronology? Is pic related correct or should I just watch it in the order presented?
>>
>>158443930
Pic related is correct if you don't watch 12-24 or the movie. Chronological should be watched if you want to watch the entire series.

Broadcast order is a meme
>>
broadcast order is indeed the best way to watch
>>
Broadcast order has a better climax while chronological makes the story more coherent.

Initial viewing is ALWAYS broadcast order, shit for brains.

Once you start rewatching it's okay to do chronological in order to catch things you may have missed before.

NO ANON
DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS ME
GO BROADCAST ORDER
DON'T BELIEVE THE CHRONOLOGICAL LIE
PLEASE

OP here, gonna go ahead with broadcast order; Should I follow >>158444398 advice of only watching part of Endless Eight?
>>
Always watch broadcast order. Would you watch the prequels before watching the original trilogy of Star Wars?
>>
>>158444866
Re endless Eight, if the differences in the dialogue are enough that it doesn't feel too repetitive or boring then you might as well just watch the whole thing. That's what I did on my last rewatch. Otherwise give it a break, and when you come back to it skip to the last episode.

>>158444866
go in the 2009 broadcast order
skip the middle 6 episodes
be prepared for a boring (read: comfy) ending

No, I'm not a fucking pleb.

Honestly, it wasn't the first nor the last time I watched something Kyoani made just to appreciate the care put in the production values, but not everybody likes that sort of thing. If you want a good reason to watch it, I think it's nice to see how the subtle and progressive changes in the way they handle each episode reflect the aggravating psychological state of some characters, something which will end up being relevant for understanding the movie in a way. On the other hand, it's also true that you won't miss anything plot-wise by skipping it. It's your choice. Maybe watch the first couple of episodes, then pick up the third one and if you feel like you're bored out of your mind and don't care anymore, just skip to the last one.

>>158444917
It's not that simple. SW Prequels were done after the original trilogy. But this an adaptation and the original books mostly follow a chronological order, also they re-run the whole thing in chronological order.
>>
>>158443930
Broadcast order was okay for the fans that had already read the light novels because they new what was happening and what parts the episodes were leading off from

Watch it in chronological order

>implying the anime was aiming only at people who had read the novel
This is the most stupid post I've read this month.

DAE Disappearance is a terrible climax compared to Melancholy 6?
