Endless Eight Drives Otaku to Destruction


Haruhi’s continuing Endless Eight story arc is exasperating fans, and the usual demented otaku antics ensue, with 2ch providing examples of otaku driven to destruction.


Their attention seeking antics aside, it seems clear Kyoto Animation and Kadokawa are treading dangerous ground, as it looks likely that the “Disappearance” story arc will not be included as promised (though we might wonder about its cliffhanger potential).

Coming on top of the previous marketing tactics this seems to be more than even brainwashed Haruhi devotees can stomach…

    I don't mind the endless eight episodes.. cause im waiting with baited breath on Kyon to intervene with Yuki's boredom. Or if Yuki would finally snap and go "Asakura" on someone.. maybe Haruhi herself.

    seriously, how broken is this guy's mind? just because he doesn't like some new episodes of a tv series, he starts to destroy his figures?
    i mean, i sometimes watch entire series which i don't like, just because i like some of the characters. for example i never really liked the setting of nanoha strikers, but in fact a damn beautiful 1/4 scale figure of the grown up nanoha is standing right before me on the desk while i'm typing this. and my heart screams when i think about seeing it broken to pieces.

    also i don't get all the guys who only whine about the prices of these broken figures. if i would destroy a figure, just because it is cheap, could i really call myself a fan of the character? does it really matter how expensive or rare a figure is if i like the character?

    also, i missed the release of haruhi's max factory version and hated myself for it. and that guy is a fucking asshole for destroying this little beauty.

    I pray Kyon ask Haruhi to a date and nail her... it's obvious that Haruhi want it.

    To all people that thinks that this repeat would make us feel what Yuki felt.... it isn't working.
    Yuki is a Humanoid interface created by the Integrated Data Sentient Entity, how are we going to feel what Yuki felt? Yes, probably she is bored.. but 15000+ repeat is nothing for her... We human are different. one repeat is interesting... two repeat is okay... 5 repeat is annoying!

    Sorry, I just don't have the patience like Goddess Nagato has.

    The episodes follow Chaos Theory. I'll give them that. I laughed at the episode where Itsuki was all up in Kyon's personal space.

    This tight bitch Haruhi want's the huge cook of Kyon in her little ass. She want's to be grabbed at every spot of her boddy so that she can get GODLIKE satisfaction. This would be the greatest fuck on earth! Kyon will put his dick in every hole of Haruhis body he can find. When he is done, the sperm will flow out of her ass like diarrhea.

    I think they really hate the otaku for some reason - even though they make so much money from them

    I've stopped downloading, if people can watch the same thing over and over all power to them but there are lots of other shows to watch that are more interesting

    For all haters of Endless Eight:
    just let those who enjoy the show every week appreciate it.
    If you don't like it, just don't watch it and wait for the next arc. But don't disrespect the work of KyoAni saying that it is crap. I don't know any other studio that would have the guts to air 5-6-7...times the same events.
    You get bored the fuck off? So do the fans, me and anyone else, so do KyoAni (cause making the same episodes over and over and changing some details might be boring too), so do the Seiyuus and so does Nagato.
    It's a way to put in shape her feeling of boredom that will be a key in the "disappearance" arc.
    So don't disrespect also those who approve their idea: they took a risk that most of the studios wouldn't had taken, the episodes are still awesome quality compared to average anime etc...I approve it.

    The only thing that would make me mad is that they don't adapt the 4th light novel this season. That's all we've been waiting for.

    If the don't have the slot to adapt this 4th light novel, then would you be mad with this endless stuff taking what many believe would be 8th episodes? :)

    I believe to shape the feeling of boredom can be achieved by repeating it 2 to 3 times max. 5+ repeats only make most people annoyed.

    They took the risk because they know they've got a good material in hand and people would still watch the series (because the novel is good) after this endless stuff ends combined with the fact that KyoAni doing it. Other anime doesn't have that luxury thus they don't dare to take the risk. Look at it this way... this is Haruhi + KyoAni, and people still hate this arc... Can you imagine what if a Gundam series pull this stunt?

    I don't believe for one bit that they are doing this because of artistic stuff unless the original author+director+producer said otherwise.

    Btw, just for the fun of it, imagine if they pull this stunt in the novel... you would have a whole book just for endless arc which contains 5+ repetition with some little difference in it. What would people think after reading it?

    Having said that, I would still watch every episode of Endless Eight, but I wouldn't watch it for the second time. And if they keep this stuff for the DVD/Blu-ray release... what can I say? A whole disc that contains repeats and it would continue on the 2nd disc! Try watching that nonstop and you definitely wont be as calm as Yuki.

    Of course every person mileage is different, so it's understandable that some like the approach and some just accepted it the way it is and some hated it. But I ask someone that like this Endless repeat... do you really need this much repeat to get whatever stuff they want to convey, or do you think it can be achieved with less repeat? Does removing some of the repeat will lessen your enjoyment?

    Yeah and because of retards like you there WON'T be any Disappearance.

    You fucking piece of shit. It will all consist of fucking Endless Eight and then Sighs, nothing more.

    So yeah, dance in circles because they actually managed to ruin something that had more potential than anything else.

    And shitcunts like you actually like it.
    I disrespect their work because THEY DISRESPECT the fandom. People have been waiting 3 fucking years only to be greeted with "LOL SAME EPISODE"

    So yes, I have every right to disrespect them.

    A guy know know irl threw a huge fit for every Endless Eight episode. I'm entertained more because of all this bawwwwwing from the fantards.

    Endless Eight is worth watching(or skimming) just for "observing" Yuki. It's a gutsy but creative move by Kyoani in that regard, though I'm sure one of their intention is to save some $$$.

    It IS a boring arc if you ask me.
    Besides the Disappearance of Haruhi Arc, the rest are pretty boring actually, up until the last volume at least, where the author has left off with that cliffhanger.
    Well the entire plot's pretty weird to begin with, actually.

    Ahh, I fucking hate Endless Eight, but not enough to destroy all my goods. Seriously though, it's quite annoying, it's an arc that could've been summed up very easily. It's taking away from the dissapearence arc and other better episodes that could be in their place. I can't understand the reasoning behind it.

    Rather than the otaku rage over KyoAni's actions, I would report on how ridiculous those actions are, although there's already one article on it, the situation has escalated. Season 2 so far:

    1. Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody
    2. Endless Eight start (SOS-dan spend summer vacation as normal)
    3. Endless eight mid (Kyon feels dejavu, Nagato looks depressed, Mikuru calls Kyon and it's explained that they're repeating summer over and over again. Kyon tries to stop it by calling to Haruhi before she leaves at the end, but can't think of what to say)
    4. Same as above.
    5. Same as above.
    6. Same as above.

    Endless Eight still has no conclusion. Even if next week finally ends it, that's 6 episodes, 4 with exactly the same plot, near-identical dialog, just with new animation and clothes on the characters. The rumor is 6 episodes, but another more frightening rumor is that they'll go for 8 for maximum troll factor just because it's called endless eight. Either way, KyoAni will spend just over half a season (or more) re-animating and re-voicing the same shit. I'd say that's much more interesting than a bunch of otaku breaking their merchandise.

    And also, to the commenters here, if you're enjoying endless eight - lol.

    For people that understand...

    This has happen (more or less) to my favrite tv show named Stargate SG1 the episode was called Window of Opportunity (episode 6 season 4) is where O'Neill and Teal'c have to repeat the same day over and over again...

    Kyoto Animation should watch this episode and make the 7 episode (all bets are off and Kyon should anything he wants) Fuck mikuru, kill komizum, reap Haruhi, and finally reside from the SOS brigade then the last one is one more time normal and its over.

    OMFG - It Groundhog Day the animation!!!! (THE ANIME)

    I worked at an amusement park one year where more than half of the other employees were from overseas. In the complex where I lived, there were quite a few Argentinians and other South Americans; and that summer, the World Cup was on. There were loads of Latin American workers from 18-25 in rec room of our complex watching a game, and I decided to watch a bit. At one point I made some kind of a joke about soccer, not a mean joke at all, and this one Argentinean guy started eying me. Afterward I shut up. I later learned from my roommate, another foreign national, that I was playing a dangerous game by making jokes about soccer unless I wanted to end up in a bloody pulp.

    When I think of the look that guy gave me, I think what my roommate said may have been true. Now, if I try to imagine what some of these guys would do if they tuned in when a match was supposed to be on or actual bought a ticket to one, only to be greeted with some kind of teasing promotional stunt, I can't even imagine what would happen to the organizers. And if it happened more than once, I can assure you, there would be violence. So before one accused the otaku of being a whining child when his entertainment needs are not met, consider the alternative---the SOS-Dan Production Crew getting jumped and quite literally beaten whenever they appeared in public.

    Endless Eight is... Ugh. The initial episode was bland, but I would have been okay with them devoting three episodes to it provided they changed some things here and there instead of just xeroxing those first three like they did. Three episodes would've been enough to tell the story in its entirely. The fact that they're up to seven and still haven't stopped, though...

    Simply put, "Never been, never been like this before" - BULLSHIT!

    How can it be a series?? Except for a few differences per ep every one of them was exactly the same. Even the Director of the original apologized for it. Kyoto Animation is even back stepping from it.

    Just because it's a Haruhi title doesn't make it a good anime. Get your headds out of your butts and see it for what it is
