All that info there is kinda confusing for me whether it was a totally new season or a remake or rerunning the old with some new episodes, but well i checked out the first ep and well its a new episode. So i don’t know if it is going to be all new or a mix of new and old since the companies seem to be very tight lipped about it. Only time will tell but the first ep did have the feel of the original so thats a positive at least.


#4

They’re intertwining the two seasons together. They sure trolled us hard. xD


#5

I am thinking this may or may not be released here.
It’s almost enough to make me break my rule but I am thinking it will be more they learned their lesson and no LE’s other then the first volume this time if it does. In the end Haruhi did do pretty decent here so I will wait and see.

I’m hoping they do a simulcast here on CR.


#6

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF.

oh well, I’ll be watching the ep here shortly… Damn japs >.>

-edit-

And WATCHED.

Damn them. It’s GOOD, too.
Looks like I’ve got something else to watch this season now =/


#7

Funny thing is, this killed K-ON’s popularity on /a/.


#8

I don’t even bother with /a/.

Hell, I don’t really bother with almost ANY boards anymore. I just troll /g/.


#9

/b/ is full of fail and AIDS these days. I only go there when I’m bored.

I’m representin’ the /g/ and /a/. Also, there were previously about 4 or 5 K-ON threads on /a/ at a time (on the front page). Now there’s… not.

Would this be the new way to watch this series?

5 years from now (maybe more), I am going have to get a new box set with this order.

The new order makes a bit more sense than the last order.


#12

I watched it(don’t burn me, I’m not a witch just a Haruhi fan), and the episode rocked, I will grab it on DVD, so why the heck should I wait, I’ll even watch it on Kadokawa’s Youtube page Raw so they get another view for their advertisers.

It is really a good episode, higher quality season 1 stuff(not that season 1 had bad episodes)


#13

Finally watched it, great stuff. Haruhism OBEY.

Can’t wait (three more weeks ;~; ) for the next new one.

The only thing it was missing was Hare Hare Yukai, should’ve kept that for the ending. =

You know you want to (or have) fap to Kyonko

Haruhi Suzumiya Anime Officially Posted in English on YouTube

Only there to July 5th though.

First 7 episodes appear to be Bandai’s subs and episode 8 looks like Kadokawa did it.

It’s legal and so far no region locks.


#16

Happy days!

I retract some of the muttering and swearing that I’d been doing under my breath since Kadokawa had started posting them without subs :laugh:

Well this ‘Endless Eight’ thing is just getting stupid now.

At first it was pretty clever and amusing, but at this point it’s just getting ridiculous. So far, about half of the second season has been essentially the same episode over and over with minor differences. Personally I no longer find it amusing and I’m thinking it’s just laziness at this point.

I mean, yeah, we get it. The two weeks are repeating themselves over and over. We don’t need 5+ identical episodes to reinforce that fact. There are 14 episodes in the second season. It has been ‘Endless Eight’ since the second new episode. This week was the fifth new episode and was still ‘Endless Eight’. Next week will be the sixth new episode and will STILL be ‘Endless Eight’. I’d bet money that the seventh and possibly even more will be ‘Endless Eight’. I just find this to be stupidly repetitive at this point and I am done watching the second season until we move on to something actually new. <___<

Edit: Well, according to that schedule on the first page of this thread, there is no ‘Endless Eight’ next week cause it’s going to be an old episode. Then again though, the actual episodes being aired have already shattered any previous list of this seasons episodes…

Also, if they go on to old episodes next week and such, that creates a MAJOR paradox and huge plot hole. Does time just go back to normal by itself? Is there no resolve?

Endless Eight was organized and produced as 6 episodes.
Kadokawa’s back sponsor got furious and after it was too late (production had finished), the producer was fired.
There was a ton of confusion over whether they were going to skip the produced 4th and 5th episodes and air the 6th.

By the way, the 6 ep organization was Kadokawa’s instructions.
The fired producer was a scape goat to appease the angry back sponsors.
Kadokawa’s ultimate goal was to blow smoke over the fans by having 12 episodes that would consist of E8, Sigh, and a new/re-organized Mikuru’s adventure.
And the Disappearance source material they had pulled from remains exactly that: source material.
Currently Kadokawa does not feel like animating Disappearance [yet/still]

This gives the feeling that the purpose of this new production is simply to pull money from the fans as they move the series from DVD to BD.

I was just reading that a moment ago. Bear in mind that was posted on 2ch and is still a rumor. However, it sounds legit enough to me. Which is kind of a huge let down for fans.

Did anyone find the clue why summer keeps repeating, I did. Before I say what it is, did anyone else find the clue what Haruhi said in all 5 episodes so far?

I do admit the repeating is now lame but it also makes me want to see the next episode more to seehow the repeating will stop.


#21

YES FINALLY Endless Eight has ended. It’s about damn time! D:<

Except wait… was that the END of the second season? If so, I RAGE.
