Haruhi Suzumiya: How Endless Eight Should End

I am sure all current viewers of this season’s The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya are tired of Endless Eight’s time loop. I mean… after the last week’s episode (number seven), it was the SIXTH time we’ve seen the events unfold for the SOS Brigade’s final two weeks of summer. SIX TIMES! Sure, I thought the concept was cool at first- but SIX TIMES?!

I’m not sure I can take anymore of it. Maybe if they showed bigger changes between each episode to show the audience that they’re actually putting some effort into the show. Maybe focus on one of the events for each episode, or even show the events from each person’s point of view.

Here is my version of how they solve this Endless Eight time loop. It is read in the regular Manga format, top-right to bottom-left. Enjoy!

C-c-c-c-c-c-combo Breaker!

tunas-endless-eight-02
Kyon Wins! Endless Eight problem solved!

I knew we could count on Kyon! Unless Haruhi wants to go through that massive beating 15,500 more times, the time loop would be over.

Thanks to “M” for showing me the picture of Haruhi getting punched (which sparked the idea). I did some research, found the rest of manga frames (you don’t want to know where it’s from), and edited the speech bubbles.

Oh yea! If you want to know what really happens at the end of the Endless Eight arc, you can read that chapter of the light novel HERE. It is like the 3rd Chapter of the 5th Volume of the series.

    Okay, I will say right now that I don’t like Endless Eight. However, I am much more upset by this manga drawing. Even if somebody doesn’t like the Endless Eight arc, I still think it is unacceptable to post a picture of a woman getting mercilessly beat up. Drawings like these can influence the readers to think that beating up women is tolerable. Drawings like these are part of the reason why so many women are suffering from domestic violence, rape, and brutal prostitution. I personally find these very depressing problems to be much worse than a little bit of boredom/disappointment from not getting a new Haruhi episode. So, please, I urge you readers to not celebrate the distribution of brutal pictures on the web. I don’t think we should make light of a very serious issue in our society.

    I think you’re taking this too seriously. Had you reacted this way if it was two guys beating the crap out of each other? Or a woman beating up a man? No, but those situations are as equally wrong. Plus these are just manga images. Images like these aren’t the reason why women are suffering from domestic violence. Spouses with uncontrollabe tempers is a reason. Alchoholism is another.

    There are articles about the Street fighter 4 video game on this site. Why don’t you get on his case about that? In that game you select a male character and beat the crap out of female characters. Because IT’S JUST A GAME. Not real. Just like this manga.

    I personally don’t think it is ok for people to get brutally beaten (who seriously does?), but I think this image is freaking hilarious. I believe the next endless eight episode, we will see the conclusion to this arc. I’m pretty sure i read that somewhere. I’ll link it if i find it.

    HAHAHA! C-c-c-c-combo Breaker! I seriously just laught out loud in the office. My boss kinda gave me a “no more browsing the internet” stare. I just found this site while googling the ending for Endless Eight. Hillarious! I just read the chapter of the light novel (the one you linked) and I gotta say, I KNEW IT!!! I totally called it to my sister the other night.

    @ Very Upset

    C’mon, it was a joke about endless eight. You can’t blame violence in media for issues in our society all the time. If that were the case, shows like Family Guy (or pretty much any show on TV nowadays) would be put off the air. If a kid thinks its okay to beat up girls because he read it in a manga, then I blame bad parenting if he doesn’t know better.

    Okay guys, I don’t want this to start some “Violence in the media” debate. Let’s just all chill.

    @ Very Angry

    Sorry that it offended you, but it was meant to be a joke about Endless Eight. Nothing more.

  7. Brian August 2, 2009 7:36 pm 

    Back to the point…. LMAO!!!

  8. Very Happy August 3, 2009 6:15 pm 

    That’s certainly one way to end the Endless Eight. Another is to ‘talk some sense’ into the producers of the show. A third, more insane way, is for Kyon to [classified information]*.

    I am somewhat insulted, however, by a comment made in response to the picture. I speak, of course, of Very Upset’s sexist comments. Women are not helpless, weak, pathetic creatures incapable of inflicting harm on another. They are human beings. Human beings are, for the most part, capable of the same things. To say ‘I think violence is bad’ is one matter; to say ‘It’s wrong to draw a guy punching a teenage girl with the ability to alter reality because that causes domestic violence’ is another thing altogether.

    People need to learn to hate each other regardless of age, gender, religion, ethnicity, or beliefs.

    @ Very Upset: Lol, internet is serious business. You’re reading way too much into it.
    And I don’t even watch the episodes anymore I just skim through them to see if there’s anything worth watching.
    And there NEVER IS.

  10. Brian August 6, 2009 6:58 am 

    @ Everyone:
    Didn’t Tuna just say he wanted this debate ended? Just chill, funny is funny.

    @ Tuna :
    It’s “Very Upset” not “Very Angry” lol.
    Awesome artwork, btw.

    @ Very Upset:
    For shame, look what you’ve started.

    @ Very Happy:
    Lol. Unbiased hate.

  11. William August 8, 2009 10:23 pm 

    debate?? What debate??
    From what I saw, it was just somebody writing an inflammatory post and then a bunch of people getting mad in response. We should just listen to Tuna and stop beating a dead horse.

  12. Brian August 9, 2009 7:32 am 

    Careful, you might start an “animal cruelty” debate. Haha!

  13. William August 9, 2009 1:42 pm 

    yeah with all the crazies on the internets I wouldn’t be surprised. lol

  14. a weird guy admittedly November 9, 2009 6:34 am 

    hehe, i know where you got those images. which is kinda bad to say for myself, but at least i’m anon.
    but not to ruin anyones reputation, and realizing you got it from research alone, i’ll stop snickering and leave it.

    so. what else did you find there?
    XD

  18. Don't know what to say December 8, 2010 5:44 am 

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Though Haruhi’s face doesn’t really match the word she said at the end.

  19. Nipples January 25, 2011 10:43 pm 

    wait, aren’t these frames from the doujinshi that contains pr0nz?

  20. Manuel February 3, 2011 12:56 am 

    Haha that is great

  21. hope May 1, 2011 9:45 am 

    On animefreak, these eight episodes have ratings of

    4.8
    4.8
    4.4
    3.9
    3.5
    3.2
    3.2
    4.6

    The start of the next ‘arc’ has a 4.8 which would be the average for the series sans-’eight’. This may show that this arc could have been shortened to three episodes and people wouldn’t mind.

  22. WeAreAnonymous November 24, 2011 7:03 am 

    P.S. The artwork is actually an ecchi doujinshi.

  23. Tasorius Orochimaru Hohenheim November 19, 2012 10:05 pm 

    Actually…
    You are the one who should get punched…

    If you mess with Suzumiya Haruhi you mess with me and the Legion.

    I will not forgive such acts against her…

    And you insult Kyon as well, for obvious reasons…

  24. Even Upsetter January 5, 2013 1:56 pm 

    @Very Upset
    Art is art, m’kay? Also, why do care so much when females get beat up, yet when a male who doesn’t deserve it gets beat up, you don’t give a fuck? And manga isn’t the reason of women getting beat up. The reasons are alcoholism and uncontrollable tempers, like FunnieDoug said.
