Er, I rewatched the episode once (for the subs) and that was enough for me.

After re-watching the episode 4-5 times:

Then you're not gonna like the last ep of the season (the true first season, I will never call it otherwise!) if this guy is right:

I wish I could read Japanese, I'd love to get a hold of the novels.

Actually, it's been three years, I should look at the older episodes to compare the quality. It may just be my imagination.


Others have commented on that, but I don't see it, I watched the series only a couple months ago and it seemed the same to me. Maybe it's the fact that this is a raw and not the DVD release that makes it seem lower quality?

All in all, a fair episode, it's nice to know that Kyon is responsible for all the problems Haruhi caused 3 years ago (comon, that databurst/timequake/awakening of the ESPers was obviously caused by him going back in time some point in the future, seriously, the author of this series was wacky enough to write this, don't you think the major twist at the ending could be that Kyon bought it all on himself?)

Although, in the end, I'm still pretty sure this will go the way of the 'The Elder Gods' series by David Eddings.

I sounded like a total psycho while watching the episode... I think anime's made me an imbalanced individual... xD

Though, I did notice a change in the animation... It seemed, a bit, well, lower quality. Is it because they're doing this with K-ON! aswell? I don't know...

Haruhi was always lazy.

and Kyon is 3 years older than what he is now. from 15/16 to 18/19. sadly, he never aged a bit. <3

Too much Mikuru. Just die already.

Yuki was perfect, as always.



And, god, how I missed Kyon.

This new season came out of nowhere.


Bull. We've known this new season was coming since the re-airing was announced to have '28 episodes'. And we've known this ep was coming when it did since late last week when one of the TV stations put it's name on their programming schedule. This didn't come out of nowhere, it just happened when it did. Still, doesn't stop me wanting to kill the producers of the first series for making it so I'll have to buy the original eps all over again when this comes out on DVD. Bloody hell, you'd think that they could at least have waited the three years it took them to complete the first season before releasing instead of doing it like this (I say this cos most anime series are 24-28 eps long, but that probably wasn't their intention, still pissed off though).


I'm thinking the "no where" comment was probably coming from the fact that Kadokawa has been F'ing with our minds for three years so no one could ever take them seriously. But I see what you mean. I guess we should have seen this coming anyways considering how meticulous they were about creating deception and mystery. It had to be a marketing tactic, but man oh man it was great. Oh, and I'm glad that something told me to wait before purchasing this series. *_*
