After much pondering and dread; hearing from all corners of the world that Endless Eight was KyoAni’s metaphorical surprise buttraep to all haruhi-ists, I was very reluctant of watching it. Nevertheless, with the end of the semester I wanted to catch up with as many anime series, movies, games and miscellaneous entertainments as I could, so I decided to suffer along with my haruhi-believers.
So I finished watching Endless Eight, and I have to ask: what’s the big deal? where’s the big problem everyone was talking about?
I mean, sure we can forgive the constant re-use of the same story sequence which could have been solved in half the episodes instead of wasting budget on animating different variations of the same thing.
