The sad part about comparing it to the light novel would be, "Endless Eight" was just one chapter in the light novel, while some how they thought it was a smart idea to drag it out into eight episodes for the anime. Usually it is the other way around with anime skipping the detail in order to get through the story.

From my point this was a cop out by the studio. They figure they had a huge success on their hands, and the fans would eat up whatever they threw out. I think it pretty much backfired, it is definitely going to hurt their DVD sales, apparently the viewer ratings took a huge hit during the "Endless Eight" arch. The whole thing could have been accomplished in one episode. With the season almost over as it is, what did they accomplish, besides losing fans and a pretty good gravy train. Or maybe that was their plan, that they didn't really want to make a 2nd season, they were forced to, so let's just really make it so they will not ask for more. It's not like that hasn't happen before, like in the middle of a season when a director is told they will not opt for a 2nd season, such as Evangelion, where they still had two episodes in production when they were told, Anno really made Gainax learn from that mistake.
