Fan Fury as Endless Eight Continues…

buruma-haruhi

The dwindling core of masochists calling themselves Haruhi fans are all but convinced that the Endless Eight arc will indeed run to eight episodes, as the latest episode is yet another variation on the Endless Eight recursion fans have come to dread, and even Yamakan found disgusting

Since nobody would put it past Kyoto Animation and Kadokawa at this stage to continue to eight and do who knows what else with the remainder of the series, the only question remaining is whether fans will continue to support the franchise by dutifully buying up the DVDs (the sales of which will be interesting to behold), or whether they will finally tire of being treated like the rubes they so evidently are and abandon it entirely…

    Heck if KyoAni really wants to fsck with the fans, they'll go to 9. Or if they remember Spinal Tap, maybe they go all the way to 11.

    In some ways this is like watching a classical play that's been performed thousands of times by different theater troops. After a certain number of repetitions you can say the lines along with the characters and the only real interest is if the actors somehow manage to reveal something new about the characters or the staging reveals new themes.

    MHS2 is too fuwa-fuwa to have enough depth to support this kind of examination.

    If KyoAni really want to fuck with the fans, they won't release the episode which resolves it, leaving that one for Season 3.

    endless 8 would be worth watching if it was just 8 different perspectives of haruhi being fucked in the ass.

    Lol Itsuki on a girl? That is more absurd than expecting Kasukabe Akira to draw a Loli-x-Shotatrap pic..

    I just thought of a potential upshot of them doing a full 8 episodes of this shite.

    There could end up being a whole DVD volume that's completely skippable.

    Take what solace you can get. Every cloud, etc.

    I've never felt more justified downloading an anime in my life, and neither should anyone here. When no one buys the DVDs they will know they did a very bad thing.

    Ever since the first recursion where they realized they were in an infinite loop, after Kyon asked Yuki for how many times they've gone through the loop, and she gave an absurd number, my response has always been, "Wait. Kyon, ask her how many times you've asked her that question."

    Of course, with each passing episode, the same response has become somewhat more pronounced. The most recent I recall being more like, "KYON, DAMN YOU, ASK HER HOW MANY TIMES YOU'VE ASKED THAT BLASTED QUESTION!!!"

    *ahem* So many words. So little time.

    I just wondered why the hell Kyon didn't ask Yuki to TELL THE REST ABOUT THE LOOPING EVERYTIME IT STARTS OVER, then they'd have more time to figure out the solution, yo D:

    Gotta hand it to them, they're sticking to their guns and going all the way with it.

    Look at the bright side, they're not going through all 15,000+ times.

    At least I hope not...

    Somehow....i wake up this morning knowing another Haruhi episode will be the same like few weeks before.

    Somehow when i turn on my pc and look over the net i want to cheer for the losing otaku.

    I didnt even have time to respond on the board but other poster already fill it and went off.

    Somehow..all the comment are pretty similar to what i've seen before...but where and when?

    What is this feeling? Did i suddenly able to predict the feature? No, its more like 'Dejavu'.

    I have a wierd thought. Maybe they screw with the fans for a reason...

    They can use the rest of the airing slots for new eps instead of a rerun and drop all of endless 8 but the first and last one for the DVD/BR release.

    It would be a hell of a publicity stunt.

    This endless eight shit is pissing me off, but it does not deter from the first season for me. I still like the original series and this endless eight shit isn't going to change that.

    I don't understand why I read that you either accept and love ALL of the episodes or you reject it all and hate them all. Only a sith deals in absolutes. hur hur.

    Oh, and I created a name that gives me more of an authority for what I'm typing.

    And somehow Yuki sails above it all with the little sister, and the bedraggled Kyon reflects our feelings.

    Where's the Law Ninja when you need them?

    Curse you Thief, for forgetting to feed them.

    Then again, they do force us to listen to Yuki's 'there's something different' at thend of each ep.

    The way they have done Endless Eight is a novel idea and probably sounded good on paper, but they could have executed the idea a bit better. They could have limited the number of episodes they did it in, especially if there is a limit on the episodes, and there is so much other stuff to cover, (if it was a longer running series, it wouldn't be so bad). Or at least put a bit more variation in, as Nagato describes, there were variations, events being omitted, variations on part time work.

    However, I am not getting really angry like many fans mentioned in other articles here and on the internet in general. I find it kind of funny when I realize it's going to be effectively the same episode again, and keep wandering, will this be the last one? I watch till the end just to see if they finally figure it out! Plus, it's not the end of the world if something your a fan of doesn't quite meet expectations.

    Sorry for the long rant!

    Interesting that we "masochists" are supposed to abandon haruhi but evidently not the trollesque Kyoto Animation (respektively their future work) -no word about that.

    Kyon didn't do his homework 15,524 times... Fuck. But really, we should all just go read the novels to tide our anger over. ~.~

    They are not lazy or cutting costs. Those animators and seiyuus must be killing themselves animating and voicing the same thing over and over.

    Do you skip the OP/EDs of anime? Maybe it's like watching the OP or ED many times...

    DVD sales... I think they don't plan on selling any. They just have too much money to burn.

    Oh hey another thought: it will fit on one blu-ray!

    Yes however bad it is, it will be remembered in anime history.

    The whole point of repeating the same episode is so viewers will begin to feel the same desperation the characters do.

    I felt it after 3 episodes. 3 is well enough.
    And if they were smart they'd notice and realize this is cutting into so much time that could be spent on new episodes and new content......

    The whole point of repeating this episodes, is so the lazy ass producers can get 8 episodes with the minimum effort.

    That, and making fanboys mad.

    Seriously though, there is not artistic purpose behind endless 8, just a bunch of people who clearly have no clue as to what the hell they're doing. Do not attempt to justify it with lazy excuses like that. It's like justifying rape by saying you were trying to teach the woman about sex...

    Congrats on being a blind follower.

    See, there's one glaringly obvious problem in that master plan. There is no desperation for us, because we can just turn it off, and not watch it until it is resolved. Why should I bother putting myself through seeing the same episode in SUGOI KAWAII new clothing every week?
