Jesus fuck, and where I was expecting this to be a K-ON clone or the original chuuni.
You're right, it's much worse.
Am I kawaii? Uguu.
How the fuck did you come to that conclusion?
is it any good?
I've been putting off checking it out forever
All the pictures, advertisements and videos of it all show high school kids with instruments in a highschool settings doing cute high school things. So I assumed it must of been a story about a bunch of kids forming a club and playing music together.
This is now a Haruhi thread. Post pics of your goddess /a/.
How new do you have to be?
Only at episode 5 at the moment so I still don't know what in the fuck is going on, but looks can be deceiving anon.
SEASON 3 FUCKING WHEN
that's actually pretty probable, considering you've kept away from spoilers or anons trying to recommend it to you, so I will give you that.
So, don't keep us guessing, what did you actually get?
I've put off watching it for years now because my sister watches it and she normally has shit taste
Are you for real
Anyone got the official translation of the newest LN volume on mobi? Can only find a fan one.
I am watching for the first time as well OP, had no clue what it would be like.
Haruhi is a huge shit for most of it but she grows on you slightly after a while.
I just finished the Endless Eight series of episodes, they were the only ones I'd heard talked about before I watched it, found them relaxing and the direction was much more interesting in those episodes than normally. Though I can see why some people got bored.
It is any good. For the record, you'd better read the novels afterwards, it will put a lot of things in a much nicer frame. Like Haruhi's bitchiness.
Broadcast order I assume? That's part of the enjoyment the first time, figuring out what the hell is going on.
Chuuni set in an alternate reality where all their fucking delusions are real
Most KyoAni haters are like that.
>why some people got bored.
No, you are not getting it YOU ARE NOT GETTING IT WE THOUGHT EIGHT FUCKING ENDLESS EIGHT EPISODES MEANT DISAPPEARANCE NEVER
That was the fucking main problem with this whole shit. We were eagerly waiting for the fucking Disappearance.
Your mind is a pretty, closed space.
I got a discussional work on different scifi worldbuildings and common theories for the structure of our own universe.I also got moe Yuki, but that was just an addition.
Please don't spoil, I have managed to stay away from spoilers for years and years, only just finished endless the other day.
Also I watched all of S1 in broadcast order, and am now rewatching S1 with the S2 episodes mixed in. Going to finish with the movie. Is that the definitive way?
Also are the spin offs worth it?
If you're invested into the characters, they can be enjoyable.
>Is that the definitive way?
More or less.
>Also are the spin offs worth it?
After you read the novels, yes.
>Please don't spoil, I have managed to stay away from spoilers for years and years, only just finished endless the other day.
Kyon's full name is JOHN SMITH
S1 broadcast order, S2 episodes, then the movie.
The movie happens right after Someday in the rain. Maximum winter feeling.
Wow wow stop what you are doing OP, you don't know what you are getting into. YOU ARE ON A TRAIN DRIVING INTO A SKYSCRAPER-SIZED STEAMING PILE OF SHIT.
Seriously the plot makes no sense, the joke wasn't funny, SoL moments were boring as hell, there is no redeeming values in all of the characters, Kyon was a whining faggot, Haruhi is cunning disaster, Reiclone, etc etc...
Man I also fucking hate EE, what the fucking fuck.
DISAPPEARANCE IS A MASTERPIECE
I still can't believe that Endless Eight was a thing that happened. I was just a dumb teen when S2 came out so I thought the site I was streaming it from was just being dumb. After the third episode of endless eight I think I just stopped watching and forgot S2 even existed.
Would you a singing bunny girl ?
go back to /v/
Bravely Default is the endless eight of video games
how can something clone something 3 years before it came out?
Truth is /v/ recommended Haruhi when someone asked them in the past.
I would a singing bunny boy.
>people watching haruhi for the first time in 2014
the fuck /a/
>I was expecting this to be a K-ON clone
Also, the Haruhi series are not that special, the movie on the other hand is mindblowingly good.
Kyon is the best girl
Yeah, probably like 7 years ago. And that was back when /v/ was still good.
Serve you right Haruhipsters
In retrospective, S1 is really good too. SoL moments, plot, characters were all good.
S2 was good too, but Sighs were kind of annoying, except the end.
Disappearance was a masterpiece, but if it wasn't for S1 and 2, it wouldn't have been this great.
I don't even care anymore
nothing can top disappearance anyway
Just pretend there are 6 fewer episodes than there are. And the movie is vastly overrated, the drama with kyon realising he's in the parallel world was so forced it was cringeworthy. He should expect weird stuff to happen to him, doesn't take sherlock holmes to work stuff out.
And it dragged on and on. Second half was totally fine though.
>there are people /a/ right now who haven't seen both seasons of Haruhi (including endless eight) + the movie
Haruhi is one of the most mainstream anime out there. When I watched S1 it was with a bunch of my normalfag friends and they actually liked it.
>there are people who didn't experience Endless 8 entirely, or recreate it by watching one episode a week like the broadcast
It's supposed to demonstrate how Kyon was lost without Haruhi. And it's a surprise, if you consider how much he bashed her during S2.
Was Disappearance really that good? I don't really remember much of it.
Anyway, was it a Higurashi reference in the isolated island episode?
What kind of rock has OP been living under, to not even know the basic premise for Haruhi?
It's probably one of the best anime films conceived.
Most of /a/ contemplated suicide when they realized they would never watch Disappearance for the first time ever again.
>people who were 10 in 2006 can now post on /a/
>there are people who watched the entirety of endless eight
'Fool me once shame on you, fool me eight times, shame on me.' You'd have to be an idiot to watch the entirety of endless eight given that it's in the title how many of them there was going to be.
It's a good adaptation of one of my favourite books as a whole, though. The movie fell kind of short for me, but for people who had not read the book beforehand? It probably felt pretty great.
The alpha/beta storylines are close.
Sigh was kind of annoying as a book too. Served its purpose, ofc.
The episode title is colored in red, just like the "Na" in Higurashi no Naku koro ni, if I'm not wrong.
Never forget; Haruhi a shit.
Well time to rewatch it. I guess I had my head full of other things when I watched it last time.
>that camrip angle
read more crime books.
I was 12 back then thank you very much
gr8 b8 m8
Hare Hare Yukai was so hyped they did it in prisons.
Did you happened to hear about the eight episodes before watching by chance.
Cause with my experience, it went something like:
>m-maybe next week will be different, g-guys! Just w-wait! K-kyoani wouldn't let us down!
The chapter in the book was named the same way, but it didn't go through 8 days of the crap.
Hey, that worked only the first 4 times.
5, 6, 7 and 8 I watched together after I got confirmation that Summer Has Ended.
>not trying to understand nagato's suffering
Nice trips. I was young and didn't actually browse any anime forums or anything at the time, just talked about it with an IRL friend. I did actually watch it as it came out but I stopped after the 3rd episode. I don't think I watched the rest of S2 (not including any endless eight episode besides the last) until like a year later.
I watched it 3 times
*3rd endless eight episode
Reread the books first.
Haruhi's smile makes my heart stutter.
I'd love to see a chuuni nagato though. The idea of a shy chuuni voiced by Chihara makes my heart hard.
Airing or chronological order ?
Calm down faggot she isn't real
LN or manga, what do you mean?
I love Haruhi's voice.
I don't think it really matters to be honest.
What manga are you speaking about? The Yuki-chan one or the Haruhi-chan one?
All you need to watch is episodes 12-19 of season 2. All of the important parts of the plot are contained there. The rest is just filler.
The one that's important for the movie. I'm not sure which one.
There's no Haruhi manga. It doesn't fucking exist.
So neither. This leaves only the novels, eh?
The Yuki-chan manga is important to the upcoming anime, though.
Speak for yourself, you uncultured swine.
>Watching the Haruhi movie
>Almost feel Kyons pain and frustration at living in a Haruhi free world.
>Your face when you realize its BECAUSE you list in a Haruhi free world that you related to him.
>not related to the LN
goddamit, I WANT SASAKI, NOW
I actually never watched past the first season, which I watched when it aired.
I've read like the first eight or nine novels, though, so I know the plot.
>there will never be a Nagato in real life to bully for all eternity
Life is hell.
This is cheese-san, not Haruhi.
You can chose to be the Haruhi. You won't have aliens and that kind of stuff though.
Doesn't work when you finish uni, tho. I actually need to get a job now.
I don't blame you, I used to only know the dance because hambeasts did it
Honestly, it's been so long that it's hard to say. I read them fan translated in '07 or '08 or so, I really need to go back and pick them all up again.
Me too; still, I am particular about The Disappearance and about the last three. True, the last two are read much more recently.
I'm watching it for the first time, in chronological order. Haruhi's such a little shit so far.
It's not gonna last.
Good, she's too cute to dislike
I stopped disliking her only when I reached the point where she was caring about the sick Yuki in alpha... was it 7? Or 6? I don't remember.
>Ever disliking Haruhi.
So much Pleb.
Haruhi is pure olev,post moar pics of her and her butt
I don't remember, but it surely was nice of her, to let go of her week-end in the mountain just because a friend of her might be a little bit sick.
Well, she does act bad during Melancholy and Sighs arc.
Oh come on, at least it has a few nice images.
I remember watching Endless Eight with /a/.
Well, actually I meant her going full housewife mode during The Surprise.
Why? It's not like she anything close to the movie thing.
You somehow managed to not watch Haruhi until after Chuu2 aired?
>has seen K-ON and Chuuni
>hasn't seen Haruhi
How the fuck did mortal hands create a girl this cute? Maybe it's the fact that my childhood crush looked and acted exactly like her, minus the paranormal interests.
Personal dislike of that type of characters? I dunno.
>Maybe it's the fact that my childhood crush looked exactly like her
I take it your friend had horribly disproportionate facial features.
Maybe he's 2D
Funny how that works.
Benten was pretty much 1:1 in regards of personality with MY childhood crush.
Your crush had connections with the mafia?
I am pretty sure her father has.
yes as in
>Wendee Lee is my queen
It's a great series, but it's overrated and popular enough that /a/ avoids talking about it.
It's one of those shows that will probably be regarded as a "classic" in years to come. And people will debate if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
I could only watch that movie up to the part where Haruhi shows up. She is so fucking annoying.
There was a thread this week about classics, it's the first time I've seen people mostly agreeing this series will be regarded as one. And with few people saying otherwise, but then again some were saying eva wasn't one either.
It's interesting until you hit the endless eight.
Remember when the new episodes started airing with little to new announcement?
Remember when /a/ finally figured out when it was actually S2 in disguise?
Remember when /a/ realized that meant we were getting the endless 8?
A fucking roller coaster of emotions.
I want to make love to a Haruhi and have her loop the event forever.
Bitch, please, Slayers is the Show Of The 90s
You really don't get it.
Watch ONE EPISODE of E8.
Then wait a week eaglerly for the next, not knowing it's just going to happen again.
Continue this for EIGHT WEEKS.
Feels Yuki, eh?
>Feels Yuki, eh?
You don't even know.
why would anyone want more of this pile of shit is beyond me.
the story is repetitive, the character looks dull, and its kyoanus for fucks sake.
>the story is repetitive
That's why we want Snow Mountain Syndrome.
Haruhi is a good show to say the least, although, like anything, it depends on your taste. Overall it's fun to watch and entertaining, with a touch of sci-fi, and watching the endless eight wishing at every episode it will be the last one can be infuriating, but the movie, my god, the movie.
Why did you reply?
Your more retarted than that faggot.
I was fine with it being Kyoanus up until the second season aired.
When the second season rolled around, though, there was a clear difference in stylistic approach where they adopted more of the animation techniques they used for K-ON.
I remember that thread.
I was convinced that Haruhi was going to be the bait for that thread, and yet Eva still beat it as a more controversial topic.
>and have her loop the event forever.
>breaking her hymen over and over and over again
Looks like Takemoto's next project will really be the WonderPark. Another chance wasted.
Now, if KyoAni doesn't do Yuki-chan, I think I will give this franchise a rest and just admire Haruhi on my own.
Kyon is technically not a man originally
I feel bad when I'm looking at that picture
