So I just watched haruhi.....endless eight. What in the shit was happening there. I can only imagine the weekly shitstorm that would've erupted on /a/ as it aired. I don't think I've ever been trolled so hard by any tv show.
Yeah but then theres people saying "you needed to watch all of it to understand yuki in the movie etc". Bullshit, I would have understood just by them having 2 or 3 episodes. No need to waste an entire season on this.
Is it really that big a deal once you know it was going to happen?
This is one of the things that only have an actual impact at the time, once the secrets out, it doesn't matter anymore.
Like Samus being a girl.
Fuck left my troll sage on, disregard that.
You don't need to watch them all, but I don't see why you wouldn't unless you have a shit attention span.
Has nothing to do with attention span. It was completely unnecessary, it was the same episode with some small changes.
You mean to say you watched all eight episodes, OP? I don't understand. I was onto those bastards at KyoAni after the second ep.
I watched 3 of them and thought I had downloaded it wrong or something, I noticed they were all the same with slight changes. Looked it up and yeah. Definitely did not watch them all.
It's not even like they did it to troll us, they did it to prove a point in the story. The fact it was not just a deliberate straight up troll made it even more effective.
I noticed too, but I still marathoned all eight episodes.
I can't stand not finishing something, and I kind of wanted to feel that irritation at the episodes.
and I though it would change more than it would (I was really expecting it to end at a round number of cycles)
It was a novel idea, but it blew up in their face. Each episode was freshly animated, directed, scored, voiced, etc. They used it as an opportunity to train up their newer animators. VAs started having fun with it too in the later repetitions. Did it suck? Yes, but it was a fun sort of suffering watching it weekly with /a/.
