No wonder the industry is dying over there, also, anyone who is not 13 years old and watches this has some explaining to do.

It could be written off as a gag, but the other 2 clips in the hopper were just like this. It literally looks like the same episode done 8 ways.

I had to try to understand this so I did a quick run to Wikipedia. Apparently one of the main characters has "reality warping" powers. It doesn't seem to discuss the actual show. Just that it was shown out of chronological order and when the show got a second season they played everything in order mixing in the new episodes with the old chronologically. Nothing to explain what the hell is going on, or why it repeated itself so much.

White Trash Party
Ahhhh I see. Still looks annoying but that at least makes a little more sense.

How could you possible reply to that with, "Oh, that makes a little more sense"?

I had heard about this, and always thought they just were just reusing animation like crazy because the bottom fell out of the production or something.

But apparently they just made the same episode eight times, with completely new animation each time. Which strikes me as one of the most pointless endeavors in human history.

It is Japan, where they practice the art of Kanji. They seem to love repeating the same thing over and over again until it's perfect.

So basically this anime is based on a book series. There was a short, maybe chapter-long story about the main character (who sub-conciously alters reality) getting them trapped in a groundhog day style loop, except without all the fun shenanigans. Pretty much just the same day over and over.

They decided to animate this day eight separate times. Nobody knows why, especially given how popular the show was up until this awful stunt.

So that's why all the horrible internet people stopped talking about this.

None of you want to watch this show, trust me. It's basically about a girl that is OMG SO WACKY AND KAWAII XD and her adventures with other walking anime-girl stereotypes (the shy quiet girl, the bimbo) This is moe to the extreme.

Lies.

LIES!

I respectfully beg to differ, as I had the opposite experience you did watching it. Haruhi may have been the reason why the cast was in the same place at the same time, but she served the same purpose as the Hellmouth did in Buffy. It was the other characters that made the show work. As far as this repeating episode gimmick goes, it was very gutsy. A lot of people didn't care for it. That said, towards the end of it, I as an audience member was strongly rooting for Kyon and Nagato to find a way to escape the cycle. Having experienced (in a small way) what Nagato did in this part of the story really made me empathize for her and what she did in the movie (Disappearance) that followed afterward.

But to each his own. We're different people and we're not always going to agree on things.

"she served the same purpose as the Hellmouth did in Buffy"

Oh, okay then. It all makes sense and doesn't fucking suck now. Thanks for clearing that up.

Riskbreaker
Never saw Buffy, but yes, let's agree to disagree. I have a low tolerance for these type of characters that populate anime today.

Cena_mark
This shit looks almost as bad as My Little Pony.

Lindner
You always struck me as a Brony, Cena.

Cena_mark
To be a brony you have to like my little pony.

Caminante Nocturno
And that makes you a brony.

I didn't ask how you bought it, though.

I USED MONEY.
