One More To Go?

Nope, not this week either. Taking bets now on if you think next week (week eight) will actually be the final week of Endless Eight.

    oh no…..:(

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:28 pmCage

    If they plan to go past Eight total episodes, the fanbase will go even more critical than it is now.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:28 pmEmphraim

    Since next week is the 8th week, it has to end now…right? I just want them to animate more of the novels.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:29 pmNeo_NMO

    the hell kind of expression is on her face?

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:30 pmChariot

    Endless Eight = Eight Episodes

    They’re not trolling just for the sake of trolling. Personally, I think E8 is/was a fun ride.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:32 pmHaseo0408

    They seriously want to destroy haruhi with this kind of nonsense. Well, with a little luck the rest of the season will be better, or so I pray.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:36 pmHorrible

    This show is horrible and you should feel horrible for watching it.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:37 pmAshan

    Personally I don’t care for this show any more, S1 was average and over-hyped, and I just stopped watching after S2E2. Hopefully it won’t torture those that still care for it even more.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:39 pmaly

    Maybe this is their way of taking a break? Instead of taking a break of eight week showing nothing, they do it this way.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:40 pmGene

    Hmm…since when haruhi is getting K-on look on her face lol

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:41 pmshh227

    I bet it ends by next week!

    But I am worried after this because I don’t know how many episodes they have left. The may have to skip the sighs arc which is a shame.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:41 pmShin

    At lease Haruhi’s face is kinda funny… in that screen at least anyway…

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:43 pmlilu

    Maybe the are doing a social experiment: “children, for once do your homework or watch E8″

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:46 pmOtakuLeader

    This is seriously making me sad…especially with that perspective view on that cd they just released for Super Driver. Why must the good anime suffer just for the want of money? QQ Thought the quality has been nice thus far, it still has not improved anything for the fans part. And I’ve read the light novels and when fans who haven’t read it will be more than slightly disgruntled as to the ending. I think they’re gonna do another rerun for ep 8 (or at least partially) and have the rest of the episode show what happens when this ridiculous cycle is broken. If not, the look at a rerun entirely for ep 8 and ep 9 being a whole new episode. Either way, I am not amused. T_T (And her face does look strange in that picture. She looks like she just had a revelation and might go crazy any moment!)

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:46 pmLQY

    I hope it will not end on the end of August…

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:47 pmPhocus

    It’s confirmed guys… Endless Eight will last up to the end of the season. (-sarcasm-)

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:49 pmbanzemanga

    Endless 8 is not = 8 episodes.
    It means at least 8 episodes.
    Meaning, there could be 8 or 9.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:50 pmkeywin

    that’s a pretty funny expression from haruhi

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:50 pmOverMaster

    My theory at this point is KyoAni/Kadokawa just wants to drive itself broke so the top suits can arrange a fraudulent bankrupt and run away to the Bahamas with the investors’ money.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:51 pmbahutmut

    next week will be final

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:52 pmshuffleair

    I think it will end next week, because next week we’ll be in August. (The 8th month of the year.) And the next Thursday will be the 6th, which is the closest it can get to being on 8/8/09. So maybe.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:53 pmSergio

    It doesn’t matter anymore, the season is ruined, probably the show too. Kyoani too. There are other anime shows to watch, though. Other than it being pathetically funny, no biggie.

  • July 30, 2009 at 1:59 pmKaris

    I blame the author for writing up such a ridiculous chapter in his novel.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:01 pmCCY

    It’s got to be 9 episodes. If KyoAni has balls, maybe more.

    Eight is too obvious and if KyoAni wanted to be obvious they would have only done two or three episodes. So I’m gambling for them to go full speed ahead with their ridiculousness, because I’m loving the insanity every step of the way.

    (one may say I’m a bit broken; it’s 50% the show, 50% the fanbase, and 50% Nagato, I tell you)

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:03 pmhissatsu

    Karis, I wouldn’t blame the author. They had the sense to make Endless Eight one short chapter, not this bullshit.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:06 pmJosh

    CCY – I’m starting to go with your thinking. I thought it could have ended this week because no one was expecting it too, and you’re right, everyone will be expecting it to end next week even more than they were episode 6, which would be a great time to continue trolling.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:07 pmTROLLANI


  • July 30, 2009 at 2:13 pmmohawk

    maybe omni next week just show us the new scenes only if it’s still the same

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:23 pmbeeboobeeboo

    BRING IT ON!!!

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:24 pmviral

    Since I have read the novel last week, I am not interested anymore in this shitty arc, so I don’t really mind even if it’s going to continue for 3 years.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:24 pmRaso

    the original meaning of “Endless Eight” was the eight days they have to do everything on haruhi’s list. they have just twisted the meaning…. I mean seriously this is stupid and they are taking it to the extreme

    they are set to sell 4 DVDs of endless eight (2 eps each) at full price…. I mean come on.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:31 pmAdam

    Endless 8 means 8 episodes of this ‘endless’ arc, because each episode is another loop, thus meaning that there will be most likely 8 episodes of this. So I suppose the end is near.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:39 pmrai

    from now on I’m going to take kyoanis title seriously.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:40 pmneko

    8 weeks of the same episode. im betting my money on nagato just killing haruhi out of boredom

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:50 pmewok

    anyone notices the symbol of infinity looking as horizontal version of eight?
    anyway it seem there will be just 8 episodes of endless eight, to put the eight to pun :P
    as for fans it turns into endless hate towards creators of the anime…

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:50 pmRaso

    @neko that is the whole reason of the Disappearance arc (the 15000 times though) it could of been the reason why they were playing this out but since they have played it out sooooooooooo much we will not get to see the Disappearance arc in the planned 14 new eps.

    Unless they skip the Sigh arc but I dont see them doing that.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:51 pmJulian

    Or maybe they’ll break expectations by making the whole season endless eight…

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:53 pmsalty


  • July 30, 2009 at 2:54 pmGod~Knows~

    It’s yui!! Where’s Azu-nyan !??
    That makes total sense now,this is actually K-ON season 2.

  • July 30, 2009 at 2:56 pmRickyMack

    they’re gonna do nine!

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:02 pmMeery

    That’s the face I’d expect Haruhi to show off when they’re sitting in a family style restaurant and she overhears Itsuki saying to Kyon, “Hey, hot chick, 12 o’clock.”

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:09 pmaltares

    9th episode will be good…

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:23 pmZenzen

    Yeah don’t wanna burst yer bubble, but August = 8th month, so enjoy your (at least) 4 more eps.

    Personally if it wasn’t for Omni’s blog and tokyotosho’s RSS I’d have forgotten about this series already…

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:28 pmSavofenno

    This is The Last of Endless Eight. Next weeks episode will be totally different story. Why are so many expecting something like ending to E8? Haven`t you learned Haruhi`s quirks yet?

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:31 pmUltimate

    I really hope that it doesn’t end next week, seriously it’ll be funny ¬¬
    Don’t get me wrong, i’m a Haruhi fan, but it’s now soo f***ed up that i really don’t care anymore

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:31 pmdesho?

    Damn it. I thought episode 8 WAS today.

    After all this, I’ve stopped caring. Maybe that’s their motive. To turn the audience’s brain into slush so whatever new crap they dish out’ll look fine in the eyes of zombies…

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:36 pmAnon


    I CAME

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:39 pmNyx

    They expect it, Savofenno, because they want this trite, humdrum crapfest of an arc to end?

    And what quirks? Repeating the same crud eight times over?

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:42 pmFeenix

    Raso put spoiler tags on that….

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:43 pmKyon no imoto

    Kyon-kun, denwaaaa~

  • July 30, 2009 at 3:55 pmSavofenno

    Nyx: Whole E8 began as one of Haruhi`s quirks. Ending this can happen anytime if she only think of it. She`s a God, you know.

  • July 30, 2009 at 4:06 pmashiguru

    I bet the dvd sales will tank regardless

  • July 30, 2009 at 4:08 pmCaraniel

    I’ve gone past the rage and am now ‘meh’ about the whole E8 thing…….shall stick to the novels, KyoAni are gits :p

  • July 30, 2009 at 4:24 pmAlive

    I leave for a week and all of a sudden this blog seems a lot more popular :S Also ENDLESS EIGHT SUCKS ASS

  • July 30, 2009 at 4:24 pmSyroan Li

    FUCK YOU KyoAni, what’s your point of doing this shit over and over again…

    I don’t get it… and I don’t care anymore about this series.

  • July 30, 2009 at 4:42 pmHuitzi

    Nakitai, nakitaiyo!!!

  • July 30, 2009 at 4:50 pmActarus

    I was so curious about endless eight ending that i spoiled myself reading the novel ending in a forum. And then i realized that i’ve been waiting 7 weeks for this shit to happen: DANGER!spoiler ahead Show Spoiler ▼

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:01 pmRednights

    What a waste of air time. I hope someone got fired for giving this the green light.

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:02 pmtman7776

    it might end next week?

    Too bad school will be back up before I can see new episodes.

    They wasted my summer!

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:02 pmRay Stanz

    I wouldn’t expect too much for the rest of the season because there are still leftovers of the last season :(

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:04 pmstarss

    I bet on “next week’s is the last” option.

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:10 pmJohn Smith

    I’m interested to see dvd sales numbers once all 4 dvd’s are out. Two episodes per dvd… of the exact same episode with different clothes. If the otaku still shell out hundreds of dollars for that, there is no hope of not getting trolled like this again.

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:17 pmPutang

    The era of kyoani must come to an end ):3… let the era of SHAFT take over!

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:19 pmDagmar

    It had better be or I’ll construct a smallish tactical nuke to be deposited at Kyoto’s front door.

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:28 pmplau

    I think eight episodes isn’t all that bad, only if they would animate more of the novels…

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:29 pmneko

    we’re not going to get to see the disappearance arc, unless they pull some crazy shit and extend the season for way, way longer. after this arc, im expecting anything. they’re wankers anyway

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:48 pmJustin Olbrantz (Quantam)

    Ahaha hahahaha.

  • July 30, 2009 at 5:54 pmdszx

    kyon-kun, denwa

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:12 pmExia

    I don’t think its gonna end. It’s gona go on FOREVER MUAHAHAH. I refuse to beleive in a haruhi S2. Glad I stopped watching during the 5th run..

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:14 pmJaney

    I’m seriously expecting second season to last longer than 13 episodes. Surprise!

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:25 pmhashi

    Okay, I give. This is effing ridiculous. I’ve tried to defend the show, and I do still enjoy every episode, up to a point, but enough is enough. It’s so dire that I’m even losing my respect for Kyon. Just kiss her, you fool. Would that be such a hardship?

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:35 pmCoxi

    You’ll have the entire epsiode in screenshots soon! who needs to sit through all 8 eps

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:40 pmReason

    I bet it ends next week. if it doesn’t end then……..idk…wtf why would they do this?!

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:41 pmNajaflow

    2 More To Go.

  • July 30, 2009 at 6:52 pmRYan

    Damn even looks like haruhi doesn’t know wtf is going on.

  • July 30, 2009 at 7:23 pmpaul

    greedy bastards.this arc is enough to cover 2-3 discs.maybe more

  • July 30, 2009 at 8:44 pmheh

    That’s assuming the next episode will be Endless Eight at all…

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t air the last episode of Endless Eight at all this season. They’re going to be criticised no matter what so might as well go all the way.

  • July 30, 2009 at 10:04 pmsenefen

    Yeah… I hope the dvd sales teach them a lesson.
    Jeeze and people accuse them of wasting resources on harem shows.

  • July 30, 2009 at 10:44 pmferggggg

    This has been the greatest summer ever.

  • July 31, 2009 at 12:44 amhahaha

    Just seeing all the Haruhi fans raging and crying has made this more than worthwhile.

    I love you Kyoani. God tier trolling.

  • July 31, 2009 at 12:49 amBROOKLYN otaku

    i agree “hahahah” *nice name by the way* i’m loving this foolishness

  • July 31, 2009 at 1:33 amMinnie

    What a K-ON look on Haruhi O_O I feel for the loyal fansubbers who continue to sub this anime…

  • July 31, 2009 at 2:12 amsad

    Yamamoto Yutaka all ready said it’s going to be 8 episodes, but as we think that kyoto animation could be thinking about 8+1 as the way out, so don’t get your hopes up.

  • July 31, 2009 at 2:47 amHimeka

    Next week ist not only the 8th week, but also the first week of August (8th Month). So I hope they will eventually finish this arc, it really pisses me off! I want new stories >__<

  • July 31, 2009 at 2:54 amParaalso

    Hmm let’s say 11 episodes of Endless Eight, with the last one airing on the last week of August. That way it’ll end when summer vacation ends for real, and there’ll be just one episode left for new content.

  • July 31, 2009 at 3:04 amXDX

    i heard from a good source that endless eight will be a 12 episodes u.u. and it will ends THE SAME DAY THAT ENDS ON THE NOVELL , so i dont know if its true but i really hope it doesn’t, wee just have to wait and see by the way i love haruhi but endless eight is drivinme crazy xD

  • July 31, 2009 at 6:29 amActarus

    oh my budda!if it’s really 11 eps, there are 4 more to go. Ciao ciao

  • July 31, 2009 at 8:52 amcrh

    i think 2 more episode, 1 more to repeat the 2 weeks and the next one for the 1 day they did nothing

  • July 31, 2009 at 10:16 amneko

    of course its going to be 8+1. you see, on the 8 episode kyon is going to get the balls to finally ask haruhi wtf is wrong. therefore, the 9th episode is going to be the climactic resolution of this ridiculous arc. nee

  • July 31, 2009 at 10:24 amsorcerer07

    Why don’t you all stop complaining and watch it through until the ending? If you think you’re all right, then E8 should’ve been dropped out of this blog a long time ago! If the ending is disappointing, then you can complain all you want until your heart’s desire. I’ve been hearing premature complaints about E8 since the beginning and it won’t freakin’ stop! It’s driving me insane already. Why don’t you all read the the darn book instead of judging it by its cover?

    I don’t know about you guys but I’m watching this series down to the last second. No reservations.

  • July 31, 2009 at 12:03 pmSkiks

    Whats more endless, the episodes or the fan complaints? People take things to srsly.

  • July 31, 2009 at 7:24 pmichigo_daisuki

    Haruhi’s expression really makes me reminiscent of K-ON!
    I hope that Endless 8 will end next week (no bet though)’_’;

  • July 31, 2009 at 7:34 pmichigo_daisuki

    Sorry for double post >_<

    It might seem like I’m contradicting my previous post but I support your opinion. Some people do take this arc too seriously.

    I appreciate all of the people who watches the arc and enjoys it. ^_^
    (Haruhi DOES look like K-ON! though…)
