Endless Eight Arc - Enough Said?

The entirety of the season can be summed up almost in much the same way as the first season, so i am going to focus my attention on the Endless Eight arc of this season. This arc seems to be the part most mentioned in reviews and in most cases negatively so. It is also the most prominent memory we have of the season when you mention the 2nd season.

Eight episodes of the same events, over, and over again. Everyone can agree that this was not a cheap measure to save money. since the animation, clothing, and scene of every read more

How terrifying is it to know that tomorrow, you won't remember today? Or that you don't actually have a tomorrow... because tomorrow is last week. And that this week is last week as much as it is next week. It's enough to make modern Western philosophy implode. Didn't T.S. Eliot have a poem or four about this?

This is one of the issues that comes up in Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu (2009). Assuming you didn't just throw a remote at the TV/mouse at the monitor in frustration and said "To hell with this shit."

Retrospect is quite a thing, especially when fans are left to compare read more

There have been a lot of negative reviews on this site, which I can agree with to an extent. However, most of them focus entirely on the Endless Eight arc, while disregarding the rest entirely.

I can't say I disagree that the Endless Eight arc sucked; Having to sit through so many episodes of what was, for the most part, the same thing was somewhat annoying. The first time it happened, I had to check to make sure I didn't accidentally rewatch an episode. The changes are subtle enough to miss if you don't watch the episodes back to back.

However, I do like the fact that read more

15,532 reiterations, and we've only endured episode length instances of 8. Should we really be complaining? Well, Kyon should have. Better yet, he should have done something productive much earlier to spare us the stupidity, if not the time. But he'll redeem himself yet.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (2009) is the next installment (discounting the Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya shorts) of an anime series originally based off the light novel franchise by Nagaru Tanigawa. It was directed by Tatsuya Ishihara, scripted by Yasuhiro Takemoto, and produced by Kyoto Animation, the same studio that animated the Full Metal Panic Series, the Key holy trinity, Hyouka, and read more

Recommendations

Both have the same "Groundhog Day" theme, though Higurashi isn't as repetitive or annoying in my opinion.
the endless 8 ark in Haruhi goes back in time in each episode and Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei (or Tatami Galaxy) goes back in time in each episode both for a silly reason that the main character forgot to do something

in Haruhi no yuuutsu there aren't many changes but in Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei most of the episode is different

they also both give you that de ja vue feeling
both main plot is about a part of the year that is repeated many many times and the main character have to discover how to stop the repetitions. The difference is that in Higurashi are shown the different repetitions and in Haruhi is only shown one repetition again and again
reportRecommended by Jousk - Add to favorites
Involve a repeat of time,somebody who remebers every timeline,and they are very good.
Episode one is another story, but part two of this interesting work shares many similar themes, particularly with the "Endless Eight" arc.
Tales of high school a particular high school club, consisting of exactly 5 people (2 boys and 3 girls).

In both clubs, MCs investigate and ultimately resolve some supernatural occurrences.

Both focus on the relationship of members of the club.

*By Suzumiya (2009) I meant watching all 28 episode in the order aired on 2009.

Opening Theme

"Super Driver" by Aya Hirano

Ending Theme

"Tomare! (止マレ!)" by Aya Hirano, Yuko Goto, Minori Chihara
