Haruhi “Sigh” Arc 5 Episodes?


Recent buzz from the Japanese blogosphere and 2ch has all but come to the conclusion that the current “The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya” arc will run for 3 more weeks, coming to a total of 5 full episodes for the story.

The widespread consensus is mostly based on the calm rate  Kyoto Animation has been adapting the story thus far, neatly fitting exactly 55 pages of the 278 page novel into the first two episodes of the arc so far.

The rest of the factors being presented are: There are 7 more episodes expected for the rebroadcast of the series, 4 of which are repeats from the first season,  the original Episode 00 (The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina) should obviously come after the “Sigh” arc for continuity reasons, and there appears to be no time left for a proper adaptation of the fan-favorite “Disappearance” arc.

Taking all that into consideration, the idea that the next 3 episodes to air will continue and finish the current arc, and the final 4 airings will handle the still unaired quartet of episodes from the first season seems probable, although fan speculation has already proven to be wildly inaccurate once this season.

For those who would not mind reading Japanese webpages, New Akiba has collected a fairly sizable number of links regarding the discussions.

Just where this all leaves longhair Haruhi is not clear…

    They already used up all the action-adventure in the first season. None of the later stories have anything resembling action.

    Fuckton of sci-fi though. Also, wait for next episode if you want the sci-fi...

    First of all, This IS NOT past history. The arc ended JUST A FEW WEEKS AGO.

    ~ If my memory serves me correctly...
    Once a - "single minute" - has passed, its considered history, therefore that if a few weeks have passed, makes it - "confirmed" - history.

    MasterInfamous said:
    Second, You really haven’t gave me a real reason as to why you liked it. For me, why watch something for 8 weeks of the same thing?

    ~ I have given my reasons for enjoying the series, many times, and in many postings concerning EE and the series it self.
    Just look for them, as I am not going to do the work for you.

    MasterInfamous said:
    If I gave any interest in EE, I’ll just watch one episode eight times. They anticipated people for three years of a possible best-selling franchise only to start off the so-called quote/unquote “second season” with eight episodes of more filler. Essentially the SAME DAMN THING each episode and literally too. - In due time people are going to stop caring about it and the series all together. What a way to begin a new season after three years. GOOD FUCKING JOB!

    ~ and was that the fault of the (us) the viewer?
    No, it is not, we can not control what decisions/suggestions, that the animé company/production wished to chose and do ~ as what is to be placed ~ "on air".
    We wouldn't know, until it airs and we see it.
    Some will like it, some will not, and many will not even like the small changes made to the series itself, no matter what those changes are.

    MasterInfamous said:
    And it’s people like you are the ones who bring it up that we’re still beating the dead horse. I used to be a fan. But after what’s been pulled, I JUST DON’T WANNA GIVE A FLYING FUCK ABOUT IT. And last, If you are a fan that shall support and continue to watch the series regardless (ignorance must be bliss) you’re right. We should "move on". And I would just move on to better selling and better writing anime.

    ~ and how did I bring it up? ~ By saying what my opinion was concerning it? - and that I enjoyed it?
    I may be in a minority concerning the EE issue, and maybe even for the rest of the (so-called) "damaged" season/episodes that everyone has already branded Haruhi as... but its no matter.. to each their own.
    Its everyone else who has been ranting and raving about it, and with it, all that added melodrama... and for what? - an animé?
    Every time a article is mentioned about Haruhi, about new episodes, exposition, or whatever related, EE is always brought up first, and by whom? - By those who hated it and were mind-damaged. - THEY can't let go of it.
    As you said, maybe (in time) everything will finally calm down.
    I wonder ~ are fans of animé really - that needy - for an instant solution to everything?
    Are they that complacent that they fail to see anything remotely different and new within the animé itself?
    Like the artwork, animation sequences, the direction, the script, the symbolism, the subtle changes of character design, and even music?
    But, I guess that's not enough... they need more, need a easy way to conclude things.
    If any ex-Haruhi fan is that upset, before you/they go on a frenzy of eliminating their collections of figures, manga, light novels, ripping magazines apart, destroying DVDs, and throwing out all their Haruhi Collections, just give them to someone or sell them on ebay and get the money back that you used when you were a fan.

    I thought the new episodes were being treated as a sort of Season 1.5, filling in the arcs which they left out last time, while putting most of the work towards the actual season 2.

    Since everyone has fucked the show, the animation company, and each other, how about I fuck the female characters?

    Maybe Endless Eight & this new series are just something being rushed out to make some quick cash to keep the company afloat or to help fund something higher up on their to-animate list.

    I really don't see this going for a total of 5 episodes. And I REALLY doubt they would only do these two arcs for a "new season".

    They did Endless Eight. Need I say more? 5 episodes sounds about right for a major arc though. Melancholy got 6 episodes and that was one book, sigh gets 5 episodes (even though not that much happens in the book).

    This theory is completely eradicated if you take Endless Eight into account. Eight episodes for ONE of the SHORT stories in one of the novels that contained FOUR short stories.

    Fuck knows what they're thinking.

    Considering the direction with the scheduling and the decision to air Endless Eight the way they did, isn't it still possible we may yet see Disappearance?

    If not, there will undoubtedly be a third season. Yeah, Endless Eight pissed off a lot of people but I don't think that will matter in the long run.

    Because seriously speaking, there's nothing significant really about the series, if you just give it a thought, what you only have here is some dogmatic heroine girl w/ a bunch of friends - where there's a generic dumb girl w/ the boobs for the male viewers and a flat-chested rei ayanami generic girl. I'm not being a troll, I used to like this series too, but the more i think about this series, the more i'm seeing there's really nothing out of this series. Not to mention how EE fucking open up my eyes regarding about the series itself.

    Asahina is not a generic dumb girl. She is just submissive, or more likely have orders to act that way.

    Nagato is not in any way generic. Her origin and the obscure way she seems to manipulate reality is interesting, but because she just wants to observe, not much is revealed about her.

    Kyon is plain and whiny, but I can understand why. Haruhi is just plain annoying. Altering reality or not, the way she disregards everyone else's opinions just because she is bored and can't cope with reality is irritating.

    I will only watch/read Haruhi because of Asahina, Nagato, Koizumi and some pity of Kyon. Haruhi only serves as a (rather annoying) premise, and I don't know if I can expect more from her
