I don't want it to be so specific and separated. As much as I rag on their other work, their craftsmanship is undeniable and who am I to stop people from talking about how much they love Beyond the Boundary or whatever else.

my serious opinion is that a general kyoani thread would be good, although there would probably be a lot of empty and boring comparisons, and retreading of the poll thread

I think the poll thread had a different tone because of the Poll being the center of it, but I think they've got a big enough oeuvre at this point that there's enough for continued discussion and sharing of sweet gifs.

He was willing to kill an innocent, powerless schoolgirl with no memory of anything strange or supernatural to get back to this, and even though he got stabbed in the kidneys for it, he was going to do it... He wants to be here. Perfect note to end the series on.

This is from a few pages ago but was that needle actually going to kill altYuki? Because I wasn't getting that at all.

My understanding is that it will revert her to her normal self. Since altNagato isn't actually different, she's just altered her own memory

Knowing what the Endless Eight actually is, it's hard to view Haruhi's line about time never coming back as anything but a deliberate troll on KyoAni's part.

Sure, the sign says No Diving, but she didn't go in head first, so it's not diving anyway. (Or, that is what I would tell myself whenever I was at the pool.)

Steven doesn't want me watching him sleep anymore.


IMO E8 really loses a lot in a bingewatch. Watching that poo poo live, having to wait a week for each new episode, hoping, not knowing what will happen, then seeing the result... that was transcendent. Like really, my recall is pretty hosed up in general and on top of that I occasionally have seizures and lose chunks of memory, so I don't put that much trust in my ability to properly remember the actual events of the past - so watching that second episode was a really big "wait what the gently caress is happening" moment for me. So great.

Also, Groundhog Day is one of my favorite movies and this helped me slip into that mindset and empathize with that situation probably better than any other piece of media could. It was like performance art or something.

this is also sort of what i meant when i was talking about endless eight implicating the viewer because when you watch it with gaps in between you basically begin to feel identical to the characters

it can be watched in both ways but i think marathoning it gives a better understanding of what they were attempting to do w/r/t directing because you really begin to pick up on all the subtleties and understand how changing the elements of production design while retaining the same essential form and narrative order can radically alter how something feels
