So I'm about to watch this and I saw that I can watch it in broadcast order or in chronological order. Which one is better /a/?
chronological order (i.e. 2009 broadcast order).
Both are bad, read the books
It's mostly shit by the way. And I usually enjoy these types of shows.
If watching whole show chronological. If only season 1 broadcast.
First watch the first season in broadcast order.
Then rewatch second season chronological.
This is the one and only true form to experience Haruhi.
Do not forget to make a week break after each Endless Eight episode.
I downloaded Haruhi S2. (28 episodes)
Like here http://en.anisearch.com/anime/4387,suzumiya-haruhi-no-yuuutsu-2009/episodes
Did they really put every episode of S1 in S2?
Did they cut out shit?
Yes, there's actually no "S2". Just a re-run.
S1 was broadcast in a weird order and going in blind nothing made sense, but since you're aware it's not chronological it probably won't be as bad.
On DVDs it was put in proper order but it is kind of anticlimatic because it makes the story end on episode 6ish instead of at the end and the rest are just sort of 'fluff' episodes.
S2 intersperses 12 new episodes chronologically around the first season.
I'd recommend just watching S1 in broadcast order and ignore S2. You'll find out why if you actually watch s2.
