I watched this for the second time today. I actually watched it on the 18th of December last year. Whether or not that was a coincidence is probably pretty moot. Or perhaps some unknown force that we dare not admit exists plays a hand in our lives as well. Whatever it was, this movie is every bit as awesome as the Disappearance of Suzumiya Haruhi. After all, this movie was the adaptation of the book itself.
I won't say any more beyond this. If you want to see a novel come to life, here's your chance.
It turns out Kadokawa decided to finish off the anticipation with an awesome feature length movie of Tanigawa's masterpiece in the Suzumiya Haruhi line of novels. Although they did hint it to be after Sighs, I didn't think it wouldn't be part of the TV series. Oh well, looks like another cockblocker for us gaikokujin. As if the endless eight was not enough...
Depending on one's interpretation of the story, one might think that hints are being scattered all over the place about Haruhi's real motives behind her irrationality. One might infer envy, pride or a simple hunger from attention from a certain someone
Yes. I'm ranting about artwork here. What do you think of the newly designed character? I think its just a load of sexual crap. The plugsuit looks like 2 hands touching her breasts and the suit breaks away from the more simplistically styled original plugsuits that Rei and Asuka wear, and has extra frills which shouldn't even be there. Not to mention the new character looks like she's from a totally different anime. I wonder if the movie is going to be polluted by this girl like a glaring ball of light that was pasted half-heartedly onto an otherwise legendary harmonic collage of emotion, action and evangelion.
