This thread is for discussion of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, easily the best show of the season, if not the year!

They are best when they keep the same size Kino and Boogiepop have

I hate to break it to you, but the article history shows that both the flag icon and the above quoted passage have been in the article since 17 April (the date of the linked ANN article). In fact, the current revision of the article dates to 2 Aug. - the day before your post >>291, so it hasn't been updated.

It's not the end of the world to admit you missed something. We all do it from time to time.

See, case in point: I put sage in the name field by accident. We all miss things.

302 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-07 17:47 ID:KvKJ/71a

Even Andrew Cunningham admits to have mistranslated certain things

304 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-08 16:10 ID:pYGIuKSZ

I suppose that's likely. Even here, the text at the article head notes that an English version will be forthcoming, but not who will be publishing it (though one could glean it from the footnote), and there is no flag icon in any of the info boxes (and that's important if you get linked to an anchor part-way down the page). Somebody was very lazy when they updated the article (nothing less from people maintaining a "list of" page).

<rant>I'm getting really sick of the proliferation of "list of" pages. It's just an excuse to not make the effort to write a proper article, and especially annoying when there's already an article for the subject in question. There's absolutely no reason why that information couldn't be merged into the other article on the light novels. In fact, it should be, but I can almost guarantee that a vote on the issue would keep the pages as they are. Once upon a time, there was supposed to be a policy (or at least a style guideline) against "list of" pages, but now there is a "list of Wikipedia policies and guidlines" page, FFS. Shit like this is why I stopped editing Wikipedia - it's a losing battle.</rant>

They will never let anime have episode articles while sitcoms does

306 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-08 23:29 ID:nYvEPOuP

Consistency is not exactly Wikipedia's strong point. Then again, I'm not sure that Wikipedia has a strong point.

307 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-09 01:42 ID:KvKJ/71a

Neither is citation unless they are willing to dedicate the source

308 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-09 12:16 ID:Heaven

Wikipedia's strong point is the price you have to pay to access it.

ni paa~

309 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-09 21:42 ID:KvKJ/71a

Their only merit is when they manage to be more reliable than imdb

310 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-10 04:10 ID:Heaven

Which is still more than it's worth.

That's not a hard feat.

311 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-10 05:48 ID:KvKJ/71a

Which turns back to the point that their relevance lacks any value

312 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-10 21:45 ID:Heaven

And yet so many people not only trust it, but depend on it.

313 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-31 10:19 ID:Heaven

Well it's at least as accurate as any other encyclopedia anyway.

The key thing is that if someone goes in and finds something which is wrong and doesn't fix it, then it's that person who sucks, not Wikipedia.

314 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-03 15:18 ID:g46ZY81V

Yeah, I watched it in the fucked-up broadcast order first time, but after watching in chronological order I decided that the broadcast order made it much more interesting. Because otherwise the really interesting stuff all happens in the first half of the series.

Big question: Would Haruhi have been so popular if it had been broadcast in chronological order? (Although Haruhi is still an awesome character, whatever order:)

315 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-03 16:36 ID:NNY9VbaG

Haruhi may have been overrated no matter the order you watch those

316 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-04 06:31 ID:Heaven

"More people like X show" != "X show is overrated"

317 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-04 20:45 ID:NNY9VbaG

Show did not live up to potential nor praise thus became overrated

318 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-05 15:45 ID:Heaven

>>317 I dunno, I thought they did a reasonable job with the source material, except for leaving some holes in there (intentionally? maybe. Rhapsody does fit better alongside Disappearance...)

319 Name: miko0miko : 2008-10-06 07:30 ID:OM1Y2hhw

Love it.

Lent the dvds to a friend, he fell in love with the series, I don't think I'll be getting the dvds back anytime soon, lol.
He's been begging me to trade him the dvds as well as offering rides to school for next year to sweeten the deal. It's tempting but I don't know if I want to part with my Haruhi dvds. ^^;;;

320 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-06 18:07 ID:NNY9VbaG

You could part with them since the box set is less than $50 around

321 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-07 01:52 ID:CoSttuBn

yay love this series

322 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-07 14:47 ID:Heaven

Haruhi-sama is mai waifu :3

323 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-07 15:59 ID:NNY9VbaG

Yuki Nagato is mai waifu as long she returns all her books on time

324 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-09 18:28 ID:GTKKGtTE

gimme summa dat Tsuruya-san, yum yum.

325 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-09 18:48 ID:NNY9VbaG

Mikuru would be more than the ideal person to end up Tsuruya raped

326 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-10 11:54 ID:Heaven

Tsuruya is the best. Kyon is a fool for not taking her up on that offer.

329 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-13 19:03 ID:NNY9VbaG

That was some plot to make other people believe Densha Otoko anime

333 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-02-05 05:40 ID:QmA5VDC8

Or not. Re-runs of the first season in April, apparently. Here's hoping that they're doing so as a run-up to season two in the summer.

Anyone else been watching haruhi-chan at: http://www.youtube.com/user/KADOKAWAanime?

338 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-04-05 11:50 ID:/ZgrL4yi

Yea it's like not funny at all. Haruhi was alright but a joke compared to Raki Suta.

339 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-04-05 16:01 ID:jhpXNn+6

Aw shit, now you've done it. They're going to be at your door any minute now.

340 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-04-05 20:06 ID:DqGsdjOY

huh what and who

341 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-04-05 20:52 ID:jhpXNn+6

H-ism followers.

342 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-06-04 02:02 ID:mI2zfw4J

i have but the thing that sucks is kadokawa deletes an episode after like a week its up i get the deleted ones from http://www.anivide.com/index.html?cid=817 i think nagatos the best specialy in the spin offs becuz she reminds me of konata from lucky star

343 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-08-08 04:32 ID:Tj1UXdrv

Endless Eight should finish up go and fall in a hole already. Damn, looping thing is drinving me insane. D:

344 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-08-08 06:02 ID:Heaven

Luckily for you, it has. But it's a good ending.

345 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-08-08 07:14 ID:Z7m86Zwn

IT'S FINAL-FUCKING-LY DONE! Geez, sitting through 8 episodes of the same god damn thing over and over again sure was hell, but once that ending came it felt like a giant weight was lifted off your shoulders. We're free of the horrid Endless Eight arc! Hurray! Rejoice!

Also, it's awesome that I guessed right. I knew homework was the answer! Glad I didn't let any of the other subtle hints - like that aeroplane - deviate me from my originally correct assumption. Ego +1.
