Good stuff. I wanted to watch this when it first came out but I didn't feel like supporting fansubbers and the first few eps didn't grab me as much as the original series did. Now that it's on CR, I can finally finish the whole thing.

Haha, your comment coupled with your Victorique's avi was hilarious!

Seriously, I had trouble going through the series after six...I left it and then went back to finish it up. God, I don't think I even remember the ENDING of the time loop. Pass...I do enough writing for school.

Oh gods... I love Haruhi, but sitting through those eight episodes was pure torture. Thankfully it gets better afterwards, but I fully understand why so many people gave up on it mid-way.

If I go back to watch season 2, I'll be skipping the bulk of the Endless 8. I think simply watching the first and last episodes will do me fine.

Oh man, I nearly forgot about the fact that I still need to watch it's second season (Code Geass too, comes to mind). I kinda want to make room in my schedule for this, but I already have a pretty occupied queue of shows here.

Always love it when CR adds new anime. Thanks!

Anyways,

I envy the fool who actually sits through and watches all of Endless 8 and not get bored or feel frustrated. Whoever came up with the concept must've been on some kind of a controlled substance. At first I was the only one offended and ticked off by this production move, but I was wrong. Even fans in Japan were pissed off so much so that Aya Hirano, the voice actress of Haruhi Suzumiya felt the need to apologize for Endless 8 and even expressed her frustration with it.

Probably the only people who this would make sense for are people with Alzheimer's Disease or some other form of dementia and people with amnesia.

I already have the DVDs for season 2 so I will pass on the contest. I must be one of the few people that actually liked the Endless Eight episodes.

You can always skip it since those episodes are clearly labeled. Skipping episodes you don't want to watch is part of the beauty that is Video on Demand.

I lol'd at that. +1 for you!

I never made it through season 2 because of the Endless 8. Maaaaybe I'll try again. Lol, maybe I'll finish season 1 while I'm at it.


You really won't miss anything at all with the middle six episodes, watch the first of the Groundhog Day then go to the eighth episode after that and you'll know everything that happens between first and eighth.

Why, yes, yes it is. Not knocking CR getting the second season, just pointing out the legendary monotony of those episodes which comprises most of season 2. I liked it, but it would've been helpful to be able to skip to the end when I was unaware of how many times the day was going to repeat.

It seems that CR made a late choice to add Haruhi season 2. . . =.=' everyone know Endless Eight well. . . The only episode I like is Tanabata episode.

Usually I start ingesting small amounts of Irish Creme Liquor (17% variety) as a pleasant libation when Cowboy Bebop or Ghost in the Shell airs in the wee am hours Sunday thanks to Adult Swim out of Atlanta, GA. It's a pleasant sendoff to a good snooze after GITS airs. However, the mere suggestion that a living breathing person re-subject him/her/itself to that Haruhi Suzumiya endless 8 eps of Season 2 mindless blather and then further desecrate any manner of human dignity to oneself by writing an op ed piece praising its virtues.....well, the heroine overdose required beforehand has too many costs to my psyche:

1) I don't think my mindstate could ever recover sufficiently to perform simple functions afterward (whizzing on the original napkin copy of this script aka Chuck in PSG comes to mind),
2) doubtless the ambo would not arrive in time and I would die account this poor excuse of a redo dopey anime because the writers were too damn lazy and/or insipidly stupid to write anything worthy of content. Who would be left to pay all those real estate taxes on this flyover state homestead?
3) I have a giant fear I might like the stuff. Affording GOOD anime is hard enough. No one can afford H.

Actually the real test would be writing positive ad copy explaining why the first series was such a phenom. There was 2 episoodes I really liked while the rest were muddling. The male narration by Kyon is the main reason I sat through the entire first season because his script was funny.

I own the dvd sets from Season 1 and 2 (damned if I know why) and imported some of the action figures offered about 1+ yr ago ( I reiterate: damned if I know why...collector mania, something silly to do??).

You might want to sweeten this deal for any future script writer re Season 2. Maybe an all-expense paid 2-week trip to Japan. Or, you could promise the potential winner of this writing contest a job interview working for some political insider lobbyist who needs a fresh crop of good liars that can create unique believable fiction for the 2012 election cycle. Bon appetit!
