So I finally got around to watching the new Haruhi series or at least the 6 episodes that are out so far and I must say I'm rather disappointed. I mean the premise of the groundhog day type storyline where they repeat the same time period over and over again isn't bad except that every episode feels identical...If you're going to do something like that mix it up a little bit like Groundhog Day did and on top of it all, why is it that everyone seems so unconcerned with figuring out wtf is going on? I mean they learn around day 4 of the 2 week period that hey bad things are happening and we have someone amongst us who remembers it all. Why don't we work together and try to figure out how to break out of the loop? I mean its only been over 15,000 times...but instead they're all content to just sit back and watch the rest of the time go by and doing nothing about it.

I just hope we don't have another 5-6 episodes of this...especially because I'm fairly certain I've already figured it out.
Spoiler
Maybe theres more to it than that...I kinda hope so.

At the start of every cycle, most of their memories reset like Itsuki said. They did try and do everything to please Haruhi, but they still couldn't figure out what she really wants by the end of the summer. What Kyon needs to do is

today's episode is just more proof that the endless eight arc will probably last for 8 episodes. (WHY?! no more torture!)
i mean, i'm still gonna watch it because i'm a hardcore haruhiist, but jeez. give us a break!

i also turned to the light novels for relief, and to see what happens.
and i'm praying it happens really really really sooon.

Yes. Be sad.

This is only a Test Of Our Faith.

Oh Pray, Fellow Haruhi-ist that Kyon grows the balls......*Repeats X5*
Name is Jadwin. No. It's not fake. Seriously.
My Man. If only I was /THIS/ good.
I'd call myself a Cos-player, but that means I've really cos-played, and well... that hasn't happened yet.

Well, I'd like to Cos-play at some point.

When did this happen?

I'm so out of the loop! I was waiting and waiting, finally heard they weren't going to continue for whatever reason...then I gave up hope.

So it's not so fantastic ehhh? How sad.

I still must see for myself though!

It's not bad... just annoying... they raise your hopes each episode... and then crush them at the end... I agree with the homework theory...

maybe next week... that's sorta what's been going through my head for the last 3 weeks. XP ... and I still have to watch it, because they might escape from the loop at any given time...

so i have this theory.
since this endless eight troll has started, and probably gonna stretch for a few more episodes,
i think that they will finish airing the rest of the episodes from the first season (adventures of mikuru asahina, live alive, etc)
and then air the REAL second season.
again, it's just my theory. but i think it makes some sense.

Endless Eight is great -- because -- it's weeding out the fake Haruhi fans from the real ones. :rolleyes: :rolleyes: Kekekekekekekekekekekeke.

In summation, this is what Haruhi demands!!

Aww man.

Well alright, so yes, I'm all caught up now lol. I suppose I don't mind the whole endless repeat thing going on, but it'll be nice once we get to see what else happens. It is true the only differences are the clothes they wear in each ep (for the most part) lol.

I think once it's on dvd I will purchase this box set as well, so I can def. have the full series...because I feel that they are doing something "different" in the way they present all of it in general...it's wacky I guess is the word ;p Makes it seem like the person in control of it all really is the main character aka Haruhi. Pretty ingenious! ;D

Just hang in there, everyone! We will be blessed with a brand new season, and Art that looks like Haruhi and NOT K-ON!
Grr, I kinda hate K-ON!

I hope so, man. I hope so... Yeah the K-On art does not fit this show, fire those animators and bring the old ones back; their animation wasn't on par either.

Yeah, I don't like it much. It's animation now lacks that epicness that it once had.

They just saved it for the Opening and Ending themes. "Here's the epicness, kids. Enjoy."

Not even the opening and ending was I that impressed. It looked like they were missing some inbetween animation during the final performance in the last episode.

Aaaaaaaargggg!!! Just saw episode 7 and I'm literally in tears.
Why god, why? When will this end? If this season is 14 episodes, then this arc is taking up almost half.
I'm still gonna see the next episode.
