Picked this up. What the fuck is the controversy over watching it in chronological/broadcast order?

I started off the first episode and every information about this anime is about watching it in a specific order. Why the fuck is this an issue?

Noah Bailey

It's not, you brainfucked spastic asshat, your 240p streaming site just rearranged the series into the chronological one since that's what casuls prefer.
Literally just google it.

If you happen to drop the series mid-way (which might happen in season 2), make a point of at least watching the movie because it's a masterpiece

But the books aren't chronological, you hack.

What a garbage defense.
This. That episode in the middle felt out of place until S2. Now the debate is really fucking pathetic and you should just watch the new obviously-endorsed-by-kyoani order from S1+S2.

Easton Wright

chronological order

literally meme for casuls and newfags who werent here to watch it when it aired
i mean, if thats your thing, go right ahead and watch it however you fucking like
just please keep in mind that you're nothing but a casul and you should try a site more suited for people like you
try facebook anime fanpage or something like that instead

Fuck off nigger. Chronological order is the best. The last ep of 1st season in chrono is the perfect way to end the season.

Absolutely retarded tbqh, how is it a scandal to have sex? Nippon is absolutely crazy when it comes to this sort of shit

Jonathan Roberts
Jonathan Roberts

How is this even a question? The anime was created to be viewed in broadcast order. That's what the director wanted. Do you want to watch the episode the director intended, or read the cliff notes on a website? Same reason you'd watch the episodes in the intended order.

Jayden Green
Jayden Green

how is it a scandal to have sex?
It is a scandal to have sex in Japan, which is idiotic. But that really fails to describe the band orgy that she participated in, which would be a scandal anywhere.

Angel Morgan
Angel Morgan

Because all BD/DVD releases are in chronological order.

Charles Robinson

It's all banter really, not like I'm gonna sleep with her ever so I'll just keep enjoying Haruhi

Sebastian Sanchez
Sebastian Sanchez

We all know that the real scandal is that she didn't share some love with the bassist. The drums and bass are the foundations or any band.

Liam Adams
Liam Adams

The re-boardcast before S2 and the official dvd releases changed the order. That's what the director wanted. This "intended order" autism needs to stop. The "intended order" was to further hype the show and encourage theorycrafting when there was a one-week break between episodes.

Justin Carter
Justin Carter

Are you fucking kidding me? You know chronological order is what the ENTIRE series was BROADCASTED in right?
Broadcast order is very nearly fanmade shit. The whole series was NEVER broadcast in that order.
"Broadcast order" is literally misleading bullshit, again, the series was NEVER broadcast in that order.

Ryan Evans
Ryan Evans

Don't get me wrong, I'm not about "purity" but I have to admit that a band orgy really makes you seem pathetic. Regardless, her somber Haruhi voice is still top tier, so I agree.

Jack Bennett
Jack Bennett

I don't get it, can you explain it in more detail??

Thomas Thomas
Thomas Thomas

That sounds like speculation about the reasons for doing things.

On a second viewing the reason for the original order is less needed, so that can explain why things were rearranged.

Aiden Fisher

He means that S1 was broadcast in "broadcast order" and then S1+S2 was broadcast in chronological order.

Isaiah Perry
Isaiah Perry

Why are you telling me this as if I wasn't there when it happened?

Luis Morris
Luis Morris

It's no more speculation than
The anime was created to be viewed in broadcast order.
Either one could be the arbitrary switch, but considering they didn't even try to make broadcast order fit with S2, what does that tell you? That it was a one-off gimmick?

Nathan Powell
Nathan Powell

ah yes the chronological order is necessary to understand how the characters felt and their motives during endless eight

screw this, the 2006 order is the way to go. they need a good 12 episodes buildup before Haruhi can go around attempting destroying the world and Kyon confessing to her

Jacob Ortiz
Jacob Ortiz

For that matter, the episodes themselves acknowledge the broadcast order. It indicates that there is more than one way to watch the series - the chronological order is for people who are have already seen all the "reveals" and want to see how it all fits together.

We have the fact that the episodes were created in that order, and acknowledged as that to be "an order to watch them in" in the previews. What's the significance of having that order, otherwise?

Dominic Reed
Dominic Reed

Broadcast order only exist beside the average anime watcher is stupid and their heads would explode of a series ever did something that's not cookie cutter and had the climax in the middle of the series instead of the end.
Haruhi even comments on this in the series.

Wyatt Phillips
Wyatt Phillips

Kyon confessing to her
Not sure I'd call it a confession exactly, he just figures out Nagato's clue and want's to get out

Evan Sanders
Evan Sanders

the episodes themselves acknowledge the broadcast order.
and acknowledged as that to be "an order to watch them in" in the previews.
Shuffling the previews to correspond with the broadcast order is called commitment. It would have been an extremely low-effort and low-quality gimmick otherwise. This doesn't make it more "official", it just makes it what was done first. One-off gimmick.

Camden Perry
Camden Perry

You'd be an idiot to say it in a "hey I'm thinking about watching this /a/" thread, yes.

You're all fucking retards. Watch the first season in broadcast order, then go back and watch both seasons in chronological order.

Luis Hill

Rebroadcasting S1 in a different order before S2 wasn't only for people who have already seen it, surely you realize? What does that say about how they wanted the series to be introduced to people?

Daniel Cooper
Daniel Cooper

ywn have this
What's even the point of going on anymore?

Evan Wilson
Evan Wilson

This is the correct answer, I originally watched it in chronological order and I think it would have been better to start off with the adventures of mikuru 00 as it's such a bizarre opening episode for an anime without the context of the show whereas in the chronological order it's almost the last episode

Chase Martinez
Chase Martinez

I dont understand what good pacing is
It was all there, you didn't need to write any more.

Hudson Brown

I guess based on the two broadcasts, this must be THE DIRECTOR'S TRUE INTENTION eh?

Jason Russell

Then you might as well wait three years too.

Joseph Collins
Joseph Collins

The rebroadcast was not before but also during S2. Some of S2 happens chronologically between episodes of S1 and they did the same with the airing.

Obviously it wouldn't make sense to mix up the order when they're airing it at the same time as S2.

Colton Martin
Colton Martin

i got fucking pissed when i heard about the scandal and stopped following haruhi -- and you can't change my mind

Ian Nguyen
Ian Nguyen

broadcast order was fantastic because getting to know characters and watch their interaction was a good buildup for what happens at the end

meanwhile chronological order was like "hello we're aliens and this is our lord and saviour Haruhi please help us contain her magical golems. good job now please enjoy the rest of this SoL show and look forward to the endless eight"

Jonathan Davis

Kevin Russell

That makes no sense at all, this show is all about Haruhi becoming a better and more sociable person, weakening her powers in the process, It makes no sense for her to go all autistic and melancholic after episodes like Live Alive (the culmination of all her built up).
Kyon confessing to her
He didn't confess to her, he just wanted to convince her about the greatness of the old world and kissing her was the best way

Thanks for proving broadcastfags don't get this show at all.

Aiden Peterson
Aiden Peterson

only watching Haruhi now

Are you new to anime or something?

Benjamin Sanders
Benjamin Sanders

I think part of the appeal of the show is the experimental nature of it. Sometimes it backfires, but that's the point of an experiment.

That's why I would suggest people to watch broadcast order, and go to the other if you rewatch. Otherwise I feel like you'd be missing part of the experience.

Daniel Sanders
Daniel Sanders

I'd say broadcast is only worth it for S1. After that wait like 1 month and watch everything chronological to get a good grasp of the development.

Jason Parker
Jason Parker

Would this mean that she's 29 by now?

Matthew Lopez

Export she's in Jewelpet, was in Parasyte, and god knows what else.
It's been like almost a decade why are people still so uninformed about everything, it's not like we don't say it every single thread.

Jackson Perez
Jackson Perez

That makes no sense at all, this show is all about Haruhi becoming a better and more sociable person, weakening her powers in the process

Well maybe if the novels were still written and show still animated the chronological order would be a way to go. But they aren't, hence a broadcast order provides a satisfying climax. Unless you believe the good ending to the show is that dumb mikuru movie.

Adam Wright
Adam Wright

No Someday in the Rain is the ending.
Mikuru is like an extra OVA, obviously.

Brandon Rivera
Brandon Rivera

But they aren't, hence a broadcast order provides a satisfying climax
It just has a "climax" for S1 (if only for muh kiss), chronological has a much better climax for S1+S2.

Unless you believe the good ending to the show is that dumb mikuru movie.
Chronological doesn't end with the Mikuru movie dumbass, it ends with Live Alive and Someday in the Rain which are perfect endings for the show. Episode 00 is alright to watch as a first episode though.

The US DVD release tried to release it in broadcast order, but Kyoani wouldn't allow it. They got around it by having the limited edition sets come with a second disc that had them in broadcast order. I believe that release is the ONLY time the original next episode previews have been included in a physical release.
