After hearing that the latest episode was yet another Endless Eight, I poked around a few comment sites to see a few of the theories on how this weird tale will come to an end or what on earth is going through the mind of the producers.
1: Ends at the end of August. In real time folks. It won’t be the first time either, think about how this season started. A 3 year break by Kyon? It’s certainly not unbelievable and is the most re-occurring theory.
2: It’s all a troll. Kyo Ani/Kadokawa just like watching us RAEG!!!11
3: Bust up at Kyo Ani. The original director/producer/animator/pizza boy has been sacked and there is chaos in Kyo Ani. Seriously, I read this from from some bloke who took it from 2chan.
4: Kyo Ani are trying to piss off Kodokawa by doing this so Kadokawa will leave them alone so they can animate Haruhi as they please. Only believed by the wildest of Kyo Ani fanboys.
5: Kadokawa know crazy Haruhi fans will continue to purchase their products and in Endless Eight they see a ready-made stalling tactic on limited source material. Basically, it’s the same as filler except not even new material. Again, a Kyo Ani fanboy explanation but slightly more believable.
6: It’s all done by a Selecou to drive hikkikimori out of their homes through frustration at having nothing to watch. This is one of the more believable stories to be honest.
Since this still gets hits lets toss out a few more theories
7: It will end on episode 8 because it’s Endless Eight! Ah come one, this is far too obvious. Would master trolls Kyo Ani really do that?
8: It will be an entire season of Endless Eight. This gets more believable every episode and I think this would probably be the best option for everyone involved.
9: Who cares! Lets watch FMA instead
As for myself, I’m just going to take a quote from Cowboy Bebop that manages to perfectly portray my thoughts on the subject.
