My Girlfriend's Suffering (Haruhi Ssn 2 Spoilers)

Post by amdrag » Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:06 am

I'm making my girlfriend watch Haruhi. Almost done with season one, and I have mentioned the... um, fun that is Endless Eight. What I'm wondering is how much should I make her watch? Do I want her to suffer like I did and make her watch the whole thing? Skip it? Give her a little taste so she gets the idea?

You know, I never got past Endless Eight in Haruhi. I kinda lost track of the episodes, got really bored/annoyed and somehow...I forgot about the rest of the episodes. I haven't dropped it though, just stalling....maybe someday I'll get to it.

MAKE HER WATCH THE WHOLE DARN THING!!!

The Endless Eight was just...
...
petrifying. At one point, I was wondering whether or not I was just watching the same episode over and over. And each time a new episode came out, I'd just fastforward and skip to random parts to see if anything new happened lol.

MAKE HER SUFFER!! WAHAHAHA..
*ehem*

well,, you could just show her the first 2-3 episodes then question her if she wants to go on, knowing that only a little variation would happen each episode.. I watched all the Endless Eight and it really was... endless @_@
Its really tiring and I was practically drained out and was really glad that it ended on the eight episode.. If it were to continue, then I think I won't be able to take it anymore ;A;

but just for the sake of trolling,, I would pick watching the whole thing in the poll.. *evil laughs*

1, 2 & 8 - the only interesting episodes of the endless eight.
after going through all 8 episodes myself, i wouldn't like for other people to suffer through it. (:

I'm in the same boat, although dropping the series wasn't entirely due to Endless Eight, that was the reason I haven't picked it back up. Based on what I've heard, it's the exact same (with different animations?), so unless you dislike her, or don't want her to like anime/Haruhi, I'd say twice is probably the only ones you want to make her watch.

Personally, as soon as I'd realized the Groundhog Day loop was happening I'd figured out a way to break out of it, given that I'd been marathoning the show helped, although it seems that they took a slightly different path than I would have expected.

Some of those loops are entertaining, this one was not. I wouldn't subject her to more than is necessary. Also means fewer hours spent watching the show and able to move onto something else that much quicker.

Ep8 is enough, since that's pretty much about the size of the novel content.

I said 1, 2, and 8. Episode 1 is the intro, 2 is the shock, and 8 is the fix. 3-7 are unnecessary. Or you could watch all of them and skim =P

And you know...it's not as bad since all the episodes are already aired.
Waiting a week just to find out the next episode was the same thing was hell.

There is a reason why it was repeated so many times, you know. First, it makes the viewer also feel the effects of the infinite loop with no way out (unless the viewer decides to cheat by hitting the fast forward button...). This grants a secondary effect of a feeling of relief when everything is resolved at the end and the loop is broken. Second, watching every single episode of the arc can increase Yuki's woobie appeal during the whole thing. I mean, if you pay attention to what Yuki is doing or saying (or not saying, at least not out loud) in every scene she's in, you do get a gradual sense of what the whole ordeal may be putting her through. But because of her stoic nature, no one in the series sees how much she was affected. And this is arguably the main cause of the events of the movie. Without Endless Eight, there is no real set-up for Disappearance.

By the way, you didn't give her any forewarning yet, did you? I don't know about your or her viewing habits, but I personally don't like to be spoiled, preferring instead to find things out for myself in order to form my own opinions and reactions. So if it was me in her place, I probably wouldn't tell me anything and see how it goes. But again, you and her may be different. *shrug*


TL;DR: Make her watch the whole thing because it sets the groundwork for the movie.

Well, that depends on how much you value your relat-- /shot

No seriously though, if she likes SHnY Yuki then she shouldn't mind watching it all, if she's not so keen, then just 8. Imagine it in a sort of sliding scale factoring in patience and the fact she's not, well, Yuki.

Alternatively, you can do what Crisu suggested I should have done -- divide your screen and watch all 8 concurrently X)

Revenge Time~

Easy question: Will your girlfriend react like Hitler here? If not, go for it. That is all.

LOL.. Hitler's reaction is funny.. Can't blame him, he just wanted to see Yuki blush X)
I think anyone following SHnY during that time would react the same if that case happens ^^;

She watched the whole thing. By choice.

My girlfriend has either a high tolerance for pain or a high tolerance for trolling.

Knowing her, it's probably the latter.
