Make sense to me, since Haruhi gets manipulated all the time and doesn't exist in some timelines. But Kyon is always there.

If the Yuki anime does well maybe that'll spur them in to making another movie or a 1 cour snowy mountain syndrome or something.

The problem is that the LN's author is dragging his fucking feet with the series and there's no new material to advertise with another anime.
>>
>>100338064
>1 cour snowy mountain syndrome or something.
>Implying SMS is long enough for 1 cour
They could do that in 3 episodes easily.
>>
>>100338036
I just want some new material. And it might help get something else rolling too.

It's a long shot but the odds are better than if it doesn't get made.

Have you even read the books?
>>
>>100338103
That's never stopped them before.

>Implying fake is a bad thing

I like the Disappearance versions and wish to see more of them but the spin-off isn't even the same as them.

It's shit.
>>
>>100338108
But anon, that manga is shit. And the anime will be too. Also the problem is that like >>100338064
said, there isn't any new novel to promote. That's the main problem here.
>>
>>100338103
2 in fact. It's about the same as the Island Mystery one.

Even if the did a season 3, they still won't get to Sasaki being animated.
>>
>>100338137
Yeah, see I liked Disappearance Nagato too, if only during that movie. But the manga is so shitty I don't even know why I keep reading it. Oh right, long hair Haruhi.
>>
>>100335039
Pretty sure season 2 was their way of saying fuck you all we don't want to this anymore
>>
>>100338103
Forgive my impudence, it's been a few years since I read it.
>>
Puyo really shouldn't have started doing plot and should have just stuck to doing 4koma gag manga.
>>
>>100338181
If a season 3 did well, though, maybe they'd make that entire arc a movie on par with Disappearance. That's way better, right?
>>
>>100338284
The whole Sasaki arc is 3 volumes long. Not to mention the alpha/beta lines that'd be hard to do in movie format. Those really do need to be done in episodes.
>>
>>100338191
>Disappearance Nagato
>long hair Haruhi

My nigga. Finally someone with good taste.

I just want more of those. Like they end up coming to Kyon's world temporarily or something.
>>
>>100338281
If it's any consolation, he's still doing Haruhi-chan.
>>
>>100338284
But disappearance was one volume and Sasaki was 3 volumes. They'd have to dedicate a whole season to it, if they want to do it right.
>>
>>100338284
You're forgetting that Disappearance is the shortest of the volumes by far, and volumes 9 through 11 are long each. They wouldn't be able to cram all of that into one movie, hell probably not even a trilogy.
>>
>>100335039
I wish that Season 3 would come out after the Yuki anime.

Have you read Endless Eight? Did you notice how short it was?
>>
>>100338526
Endless Eight was adapted in the stupidest way possible, but even you have to admit that's a pretty unique circumstance. It's not like they'll show us the same 3 episodes 3 times for no reason... right?

>>100338526
EE is different, they wouldn't actually be able to pull the same shit with Snow Mountain because it's a different type of story all together.

Is what Koizumi saying about her true? That she's faking everything to get Kyon on her side?

I wouldn't say stupidest way possible, it did make the movie possible, along with serving as build up for it.
>>
>>100338676
Not her, but yes about older Mikuru.
>>
>>100338676
That hasn't been explained yet. I can see all her actions, even the ones in the book as a way to manipulate Kyon, but they seem really sincere too.
>>
>>100338748
Maybe.
>>
>>100338748
>>100338756
>>100338807
I see.

Fuck, this series never fully confirms anything. But that's part of the reason why I love it so much. Everyone gets their own interpretation.

For now, I'll just stick to the idea that she genuinely likes him but can't do anything because time travel and Haruhi.
>>
>>100338922
Doesn't help her older self is obviously being a manipulative bitch with her younger self.
>>
Haruhi suffers heavily from the fact that the entire series is based off a bunch of half-fleshed out ideas, which the author clearly never made up and end-game for
Sure, the whole Haruhi being god and everyone else existing because she willed them to is cool, but where does that lead?
It most likely doesn't amount to jack shit, otherwise it would have been resolved a long time ago
It sucks to say this, but none of the events in the entire LN series really amount to anything at all if you think about it
>>
>>100339193
Why would he resolve everything before the end?
Although it indeed feels like he had no clear direction in the first 3-4 volumes.
>>
>>100339193
>>100339289

You guys are forgetting that Haruhi was meant to be a one volume thing.
>>
>>100339484
But I didn't, I just said that after the 4th volume everything started being more connected, for a lack of a better word in my vocabulary.
>>
>>100338990
She has to. I can't see why adult Mikuru won't do whatever is in Younger Mikuru's best interest.
Unless she a masochist?
>>
>>100339867
Well, they can make her forget things if she spills the beans, I don't see why they can't tamper a bit with her memories or more.
>>
>>100339484
Exactly, it got blown up way out of proportion compared to it's original scope
hence the endless half-fleshed out ideas
>>
So should I purchase all the LNs or wait until they adapt everything? They should make an S3 within the next decade, r-right?
>>
Be honest here /a/.
What are the chances of this new Yuki thing being an actual full length anime (12 eps probably; 24 eps unlikely) as opposed to the 5min long haruhi-chan show?
I'd be pissed if it was the latter.
>>
>>100337241
As a dubbed fan, I'd be fine
>>
>>100335039
As much as I would like that I would prefer Book 11. or book 12 in Japan
>>
Does anyone unironically like Haruhi? I finally got around to watching it this week and she seems like a cunt
>>
>>100342793
Well I prefer her over Mikuru. Nagoto is best girl obviously.
>>
>>100342303
well if you want to avoid spoilers you should just get the books cause god knows some faggot that thinks hes funny will spoil everything on the threads.
>>
>>100342322
Mangafags say it actually has plot.
So a high chance that it's 12 eps.

It is more drama based than the either original or Haruhi-chan, but it still doesn't have much plot per se since all characters in it are normal human beings.
The closest it gets to the original series is when Nagato gets amnesia and her personality turns into original-Nagato for a while.

The best thing about Yuki-chan is that Tsuruya is a major character in it.

>>100343578
There is no "season 1" or "season 2". The 2009 airing had 28 episodes: half of them are old episodes (from 2006) and the other half new. It goes chronologically from the beginning to end and prepares perfectly for the movie.

S1 opening has a lot of weird stuffs we didn't see. Like Haruhi playing piano (maybe it happened of screen when she looked for clubs)
On the other hand, there are tons of things that happened in S2 or mysteries in S1. Asakura's knife (classic), Haruhi filming something (Mikuru's movie).
Unrelated but I just love the ost they put when haruhi and Kyon kissed. http://youtu.be/sW2to35ks3w?t=16m26s

I thought Disappearance was a good end for the anime. The animation was superb, the music and the voice acting was great. There were so many really quiet moments that they just let sink in. It's got moments that just drip with loneliness. And ultimately I feel like it summarizes Kyon's relationship with the two most important characters quite nicely.

At this point, I'm more mad that a new novel hasn't come out in years.
>>
>>100348281
I have a hard time watching the first part of disappearance with kyon running around making a fool of himself.

I'm at episode 11 of this right now and I still don't understand the hype for this series. It's pretty good so far I guess.

You'll probably appreciate it more when season 1 ends. Season 2 will most likely frustrate you a little bit, but you'll get attached to the characters more and more.
And then you watch the movie, and you get mindblown. 2H40 of introspection, doubt, cold, warmth, questionning. I liked S1 and S2 mostly for the characters, but the movie is both plot and character driven. Beautiful. SOS Brigade is GOAT.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Melancholy 6 (the episode with the closed space) is supposed to be season finale, not Endless Eight.
Anyway, you're halfway, and there's no way you can unlike the movie.

Making 8 episodes was for a scenaristic reason that is shown during the movie, but I agree they should have done only 4 or something like that.

I've read it up to volume 8, I think. The last thing I remember is the beginning of a chapter where they decided to write stories so the literature club wouldn't get closed. Does it get better later?

>It's not Endless Eight that is better watching if you follow chronological, but S1.

Ah. Well that makes sense. Turns out I just have differently named episodes and that was confusing me. I guess whoever put this torrent together only wants you to watch it chronologically. Not sure why anyone would go with broadcast order or why they even did that in the first place, looks like it would only be confusing.

This just raises more questions as to why people liked this series in the first place. Not only were the episodes convoluted and 3 years apart but there was endless eight to deal with.
>>
>>100355899
I really hope you are just acting this retarded.
>>
>>100356043
Not acting. Explain to me why it's better to watch it in fucked up order or why viewers put up with that shit, waiting 3 years for season 2, and getting 8 nearly identical episodes without telling me the entirety of it's audience were masochists.
>>
>>100356292
Not him, but it was better since S1 was distributed plot->climax->SoL if you watched it chronologically, so it was to keep you interested. Maybe that's why so many people keep saying that broadcast is for the first time, chrono is for the second.
>>
>>100355899
>>100356043
>>100356292
There is no fucking reason to watch the 2006 broadcast anymore. Even the original light novels were written chronologically (or at least as complete arcs without any warping bullshit).
The first arc serves as a great beginning and the rest of the old episodes make much more sense when you know the characters. Endless Eight was an overkill, but Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody is crucial for the movie and Sighs has important character development for Haruhi.

The only reason the 2006 was made that way was because they wanted a strong ending (Melancholy Part 6) instead of an episode about everybody doing fucking nothing (Someday in the Rain), but now that the movie is out, there is absolutely no need for it. In fact, the gloomy mood of the last episodes carries really well into Disappearance.
>>
>>100355213
The second season of Haruhi killed the series I think.

What even happened between her and Kyon in the LN in the intervening 5-6 years after this series aired? Anything significant? How long ago did it end?

The Endless Eight DVDs and Blurays actually sold pretty well though. Keep in mind that these are the 2 episodes per volume at crazy Otaku prices sort of thing.

Endless Eight didn't lose Kyoani or Kadokawa any money.

That bit really made me lose some faith in humanity. Not much, mind you, considering the pool is mostly empty, but some.

In the short term it didn't cost them anything, but long term there's a lot of ill-will over Endless Eight. Haruhi was a red-hot property until that happened.

The worst part is that it's not even the same episode.
I didn't notice it when it was airing, but later anons pointed out to me that all the scenes are drawn differently(angle and stuff) and not just have details changed.
So it can't even be explained as the studio being lazy. They actually had the insolence to put real effort into that shit.
>>
Is Kadokawa still alive? He's at least homeless now right?
>>
>>100363023
Yeah, and it totally deserved it. Disappearance was outstanding. If you suffered through Endless Eight the movie was like a consolation prize.
>>
>>100363048
I thought this was fairly obvious. Kyoano were delt a shitty hand by Kadokawa by getting forced to do Endless Eight, so they decided to use the entire arc to train their younger animation staff. Every episode had a different director, storyboard artist, and different set of staff overall. It's what gave each episode its own unique feeling.

Of course the arc shouldn't fucking exist in the first place, but it's nice that Kyoani didn't just half ass it.

I think she'd be fun to hang out with. But, well, I like genki girls, and the idea of someone being genuinely interested in me and actively initiating contact seems very appealing.

Also, don't forget that from her perspective every member of SOS-dan can quit anytime he/she wants to. She doesn't know the real reason why they've gathered around her.
And even considering that reason, at least Kyon and Mikuru secretly enjoy it, not to mention Tsuruya.
I don't remember if Itsuki has ever expressed his true opinion on Haruhi, and Yuki barely has emotions anyway.

>I don't remember if Itsuki has ever expressed his true opinion on Haruhi
Pretty sure that he is at the very least infatuated with her. He said so in the real world and in Disappearance.
