The slider is Nagaru Tanigawa or Noizi Ito. Or both.What can we see in the end of the opening? "© 2006 Nagaru Tanigawa/Noizi Ito/member of SOS." They will join the Brigade at some point, so one of them is bound to be a slider.
The fakes in Snow Mountain Syndrome did not reflect who the dweller desired most, but rather the ones they feared the most
Neon Genesis Evangelion is a previous iteration of Haruhi's universe, and Asuka a previous incarnation of herHaruhi developed an interest in mecha anime, conspiracy theories, esoteric mysticism, and psychology, and decided to create a universe based on them to entertain herself for a while. unfortunately, things went horribly wrong, and she decided to scrap that universe and create a somewhat nicer, more normal one to apologize to the people she made suffer, and surrounding herself with people she knew in that life: Rei as guess fucking who, Kaworu as Itsuki, Misato as Tsuruya, and of course, Those Two Guys as those two other guys. Meanwhile, Shinji is Mikuru and Gendo is Kyon (Gendo even looks like a grown-up battered-down Kyon), partly to punish them, but also to ensure Gendo/Kyon can use his bastardry to indirectly play God if need be. She's mostly happy now, but occasionally, her dreams are haunted by strange, destructive, incomprehensible giants wreaking havoc on the works of man...
There is another organization based on censoring all entertainment media.They have to carefully screen out/ delete anything that their test audiences (who were carefully selected to be on a similar mental level) react too positively to, otherwise she'll change everything into what she's been watching. And this group fears the day that the SOS Brigade fails, Haruhi gets really depressed, and engrossed by a series that's too well known and too much of a marketing giant for the organization to Ret Gone
Haruhi takes place in the Shin Megami Tensei universeIf we take Kyon to be a Mega Ten MC, then look at it. He can't use any supernatural abilities, but he has an uncanny knack for persuading various 'demons' to side with him. The Data entities can use digital machinations to interfere with reality, and probably could write a program that summoned demons. The presence of time travel was demonstrated in Raidou's games. The 'Espers' are likely Avatar Tuners, albeit ones that can only transform in innately unreal places. The factions are The Organization, the IDE, and Mikuru's employers on the Law side, and the SCD, future dissidents, and rogue espers are the Chaos sides. Kyon is currently on the nuetral path, and has actually persuaded the representatives of Law to side with him over their fellows. The Enclosed Spaces are miniature Vortex Worlds created by Haruhi, who somehow has YHVH's power to recreate the world. Also consider that Haruhi's agents within the enclosed spaces are what appear to be Gog Magog http://megamitensei.wikia.com/wiki/Gogmagog except with glowing red orbs...a sign of her control?
Nothing is real, with some exceptions.Haruhi Suzumiya is not a reality warper in any way, shape or form. I postulate the following:
The whole series is All Just a DreamA girl dumped Kyon the day before. Now, he is having a nightmare of her. A pretty LONG nightmare.
The entire series is in fact an interpretation of GnosticismFollowing the notion that the true God is not Haruhi, but actually Kyon, then Haruhi might as well be considered as the Demiurge, or inferior creator god. In Gnosticism the Demiurge is usually portrayed as malevolent, which would explain Haruhi's malevolent attitude towards members of the SOS Brigade, especially Mikuru....
The entire Haruhi-verse is nothing but a gameTo be exact, a MMORPG kind of game. Yeah, like the (dot)hack universe. Kyon, Mukuru, Nagato, and Itsuki are players in said game, while Haruhi is just an AI. This explains why she gets little to none character development, it's because she's nothing but an NPC, controlled by the computer. It's also the source of her reality-warping powers. The reason why Kyon is always referred to as just 'Kyon' is because his in-game name is Kyon. 'ES Pers', 'Aliens' and 'Timetravellers' are just types of characters, like 'Druids' and in a fantasy-setting RPG. Oooh, I feel a fanfic plotbunny coming on...
Haruhi is TV Tropes.At some point,this website becomes a sentient entity.And its powered by the imagination of tropers.Face it,Haruhi is the poster girl for Wild Mass Guessing,and knows her tropes.Not to mention,it'd be AWESOME
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya take place in The World of Darkness after The Time of Judgment. Haruhi is an Archmaster of Prime who retread to a pocket universe that she carved out of the UMBRA several centuries after the end of the Ascension WarHaruhi Suzumiya was originally a Japanese Hollow One with a knack for magic of The Prime Sphere. Who formed an eclectic Cabal while in high school. Consisting of a pair Of Sleepwalkers, Kyon and his little sister. A quite Virtual Adepts named Yuki Nagato. A positively adorable and seemingly incompetent Etherite from an alternate timeline,Mikuru Asahina. And a flamboyant Celestial Chorister, Itsuki Koizumi. Haruhi named her cabal the S.O.S Brigade, and lead them on all manor of CONSENSUS shattering adventures. They took journeys deep into the UMBRA; and threw a concert in City of Concordia in HORIZON Chantry. They Crossed paths with all the other Denizens of The World of Darkness...and had fun with them!
Said three-years-ago occurrence is on July 7, 2007 (7/7/7).A video was released depicting some of the events of that chapter; the timestamp is explicitly "2007/7/7". This would make the main series take place in 2010.
The entire show is a dramatisation of real events.The characters refer to real things frequently, and nobody on the show ever Facefaulted. I mean ever. Seriously, watch closely. Many of the episodes revolve around everyday activities like culture fests or lugging heaters around. If this is true, then it does of course mean that we'd all better pray Haruhi stays happy, or else it's curtains for us.
There was originally a death in the Island Mystery, but Haruhi/Kyon rewrote it so it became an elaborate "game" instead.When they realized the full implications (namely, that Kyon and Itsuki had accidentally killed the victim), they rewrote the entire scenario at that very spot, including the past leading up to it. This makes sense whether the one doing the reality-altering is Haruhi ( who is visibly shaken by her own deduction and refuses to say anything that would incriminate her friends—incidentally showing that she has had some Character Development as well) or Kyon ( who obviously doesn't want to be guilty of someone else's death, accidental or not).
In the previous iteration of the universe, octopi were the dominant species...... however, octo-Haruhi frequented the molluscan version of the TV Tropes Wiki, and became entranced by the idea that Everything's Better with Monkeys. The rest followed naturally.
The whole universe the series is set in is one big experimental scenario run by a wacky King of All CosmosSaid King of All Cosmos is the creator of The Multiverse and, bored with watching all of the other 'verses whose inhabitants are bound within whatever scientific laws hold true in their local universe, creates one (or possibly more) where several of its inhabitants are capable of manipulating its laws just to see what would happen. To tie in with an earlier WMG, Tsuruya is the avatar of the aforementioned King of All Cosmos who is watching everything unfold with great amusement.
The entire series is an Adventures of Mikuru Asahina Self-Insert Fic. Haruhi is an original-character Mary Sue.The author, American 7th-grader Harriet Sussmeyer, ships Itsuki with the canonically minor character Kyon (yet fails to come up with an actual name for him), refuses to believe Yuki is the villain, and has a Deviant Art account full of drawings of Mikuru in random costumes. Naturally, she's much better acquainted with the conventions of anime than with those of actual Japanese society, on which she did no research.
The members of the SOS Brigade are overestimating the amount of danger Haruhi really represents if she discovers what she is.Or worse, her not knowing is actually putting the universe at GREATER risk. Haruhi might certainly enjoy having the power, but the real threat of her overwriting the current universe is because she doesn't know to prevent it as things stand. If she became aware, she might indulge in some godly mischief, but she wouldn't actually destroy anything.
The Integrated Data Entity evolved from the different operating systems of our universe and manifested in the universe where the series is set.This is why Yuki's reality hacking consists of sped-up and reversed SQL statements. The differing factions within the Integrated Data Entity are the manifestation of the diffrent operating systems(Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, UNIX, etc.) of our world. The Sky Canopy Domain, on the other hand, evolved from 4chan. Which is why Kuyou is a much more crude interface than Nagato, speaks in an apparently nonsensical manner, has a weak sense of individuality, and is utterly incapable of normal social interaction.
The Integrated Thought Entity will be destroyedThrough a series of deus ex machinas and gaping plot holes, Yuki will somehow become her own being, separate from the ITE, and reduce it to ash. A while after this is done, the ITE will become two separate beings, the Galactic Entity, and the Brainspawn.
The ITE is a Lovecraftian Horror.Something I thought up on the fly, but I think it makes some sort of sense...It speaks a language not heard by human ears for example...
The Sky Canopy Dominion intentionally designed Kuyou to be more primitive then the Data Intergrated Entity's interfaces.The Sky Canopy Dominion is aware of Yuki's theft of Hruhi's powers and the subsequent destruction of the Data Integrated Entity, fearing what would happen if it created a similar interface it chose to make one that was more primitive.
There is an Entity Interface that has joined the Agency, and possibly there are other intermixes in the three groupsIn the episodes Remote Island Syndrome Part 1 and 2, the Agency set up a murder mystery that involved a typhoon. Espers are mentioned as having only the ability to manipulate closed space. The Integrated Thought Entity has the ability to alter the weather. However, Nagato does not support doing so as it would cause strange weather patterns. So it would have to be some sort of other interface.
Data Entity Agents, Time Travellers, and Espers are all the same thing; their differences are cultural, with different priorities leading to different abilities.Mikuru reveals that physical technology is abandoned for psychic tools in the future, much like how Agents access the Data Entity. The medium through which this is done is ESP. In the novels, one "half-Esper" accidentally partially hooks himself into the Integrated Data Entity, making him think he's in love with Nagato.
Aliens and Time Travelers always existed Haruhi is simply responsible for attracting them to herselfBoth Mikuru and Yuki give reasons why they are observing Haruhi, the inability to go back in time beyond a certain point and a burst of data with Haruhi at the epicenter, respectively. On the other hand Koizumi claims he instinctively knew about Haruhi and her powers indicating he is fundamentally different from Mikuru and Yuki.
Espers are a fail-safe built into Haruhi's powers and will exist no matter how normal anyone using her powers tries to make the worldSasaki doesn't have any desire to change the world, but espers still came into to being when she had her powers. This would also mean that Yuki has espers although she may not be aware of this.
Espers are supposed to be evil (including Itsuki, in his job as a combat esper at least).Think about it from the point of view of Haruhi's subconscious. She/it just wants to remake to world, so it will be better, but the espers are attacking and killing the beings who are remaking the universe for her, and obstructing progress. Her first opinion of the closed space giants is that they are cool, not that they are malevolent. This is further strengthened by Kyon's uncannily accurate narration at the beginning of the animated series: He keeps saying that he always believed in time travellers, aliens, espers, and evil organizations. The only recurring organization (aside from the Anti-SOS Brigade, as far as it can be called an organization) is Itsuko's mysterious and rarely explained Agency. (The first chapter of the Haruki Suzumiya project also has Kyonko wishing in the opening narration that she could "engage in psychic duels with evil espers".)
The Espers are Anti-Heros and may even be considered heretics for itThey are fighting God's creation process and although Haruhi is a little wild she certainly isn't God Is Evil. so it stands to reason that the ESPERS are the Defenders of Humanity who truely believe in what they are doing. They have no true proof they are in danger, but they can't risk it. Itsuki even suggests this in his songs to some degree.
The series will end with Haruhi's "Suicide"Haruhi will realize her powers at some point and, in a bright moment, understand how she is the cause of all sufferings her friends, that she really cares about, have to endure. Therefor, she finds that the only solution for Kyon&Co's suffering is to erase herself out of existence. Also, note how close the sound of "Suzumiya" is to "Suicide".
The Closed Space at the end of the first novel/anime series was a suicide attempt.Hand in hand with the previous WMG: After several years of trying and failing to find aliens, time travelers, sliders, and espers, or just find some generally interesting things, Haruhi's depression comes back in full force. She unconsciously pulls herself into Closed Space, where the Shinjin/Celestials will destroy her. Kyon comes along for whatever reason, possibly related to other WMGs (being the slider? not being affected by her powers?). When he kisses her, she both experiences an instant of pure happiness and thinks that maybe life is worth living after all, destroying the Closed Space.
The entire series is a series of self propagating stable time loopsthe "time quakes" referred too by Mikuru are actually damage being done due to the existence of time loops. As attempts are made to "fix" the discrepancies between recorded history and what is observed in the past further time loops are established and more damage is caused, eventually causing the time stream to become so unstable that blatantly impossible things(Haruhi's power for instance) start happening, causing an even larger number of time loops to come into existence. The "first"(if the word first can really mean anything in this context) time loop was Mikuru telling Kyon about the mole. When she realized that he didn't know about it already she said "oh no! then this is before we..." and then cut herself off and started saying she made a mistake and telling him to forget it. A few scenes later he tells her younger self about it without ever finding out about it by... however she was thinking he found out. It is the only loop apparently created by accident and therefore must be the origin point. The final result will be the destruction of the universe or, alternately, a final overarching loop of Haruhi destroying the universe and rebooting it back to 7/7/07.
Mikuru, Koizumi, Nagato, Asakura, and so on were once ordinary students, until Haruhi/Kyon "rewrote" them.Think about it, especially how normal Asakura seemed until the episode she went berserk. And why would the Time Agency (or whatever it's really called) send someone as frail as Mikuru on a mission of such importance anyway? Granted, Nagato was always weird, but if Kyon is the real God (see the first WMG on this page), then notice how Nagato was the first one to tell Kyon. He subconsciously picked her first because he was making up some sort of explanation for her weirdness, and then once one of them was explained, he subconsciously wished similar backstories for the others.
The members of the SOS brigade are different aspects of the same beingOn this page we have Haruhi is Kyon, and Kyon is the slider. The Lucky Star pages shows the Konata is Haruhi and Koizumi. Furthermore, Nagato was able to steal Haruhi's powers without Kyon's consent because the powers see them as the same person. Finally, the Haruhi-chan anime clearly shows that Mikuru is Jesus and by extension Haruhi.
The members of the SOS Brigade are exactly what they appear to be....in addition to the fact that they are, you know, an alien, esper and a time traveler, respectively. For characters who are in a show with quite a few mind screw-y elements they themselves are surprisingly true to themselves despite their supernatural origins. Yuki, Mikuru and Koizumi aren't pretending to be who they are, they just are who they are. Even Koizumi's manufactered personality (which probably isn't even as good a cover personality as he thinks it is) seems like something he might do even if he wasn't a psychic secret agent. Despite the secrets they all must keep their inherent truth of character is why this particular group was chosen by Haruhi out of all the aliens, espers, and time travelers there are out there.
Each of the SOS Brigade members are also as powerful as Haruhi, their personality simply limits their powers to what we knowHaruhi with her sheer boredom and large imagination can turn fiction into fact, and thus has the most influence on Reality, only kept in check by her basic common sense. Kyon has more potential in completely rewriting reality than Haruhi, but his skepticism constantly tries to suppress his own powers. Yuki's cold rationality prevents her from going beyond the laws of Equivalent Exchange, despite having mastered her own powers. Itsuki with his desire to study and philosophize about the human mind got Psychic Powers instead. Mikuru with her naiveté, low self-esteem, and Happiness in Slavery limits her into being a Moe Moe time traveler. Perhaps everyone has reality-warping powers, but it is shaped by consensus and said effects on reality are interpreted according to each person's own perception (a magic-oriented person can interpret these reality-effects as magic while a science-oriented person can interpret these reality-effects as high technology grounded on physical law), ala Mage: The Ascension, with the main cast corresponding to the awakened Magi. Of course, this can go with the theory that Everybody Is Jesus in Purgatory, so this would result in an infinite WMG dart board
Kyon, Haruhi, Sasaki, Kyon's Sister, and Kunikida all died in 1999As noted above, Kyon was in junior high in 1996, but evidence in the novels points to three-years-ago being in 2007. When the Reaper's Game between Haruhi and Kyon started it became neccesary to rewrite the memories of everyone in order for them to fit into the Realground, Kyon and Haruhi's game started in 2007. Kyon's implying that he was in junior high in 1996 was simply due to the memory rewrite not being comprehensive enough.
The tenth novel and the second season will come out at the same time.One is delaying the other. Either that or Tanigawa has fallen into a space-time rift and they can't find the final draft of the novel, or get his signature for the second season contract.
The show will end when someone takes a closer look at the video the club made for the arts festival.They all get arrested for selling DVDs of Itsuki naked on film. Censor Steam doesn't work quite as well in film as it does in animation. Haruhi remakes the universe because she's ticked off that they get in trouble for such a stupid reason. Partly so they have an excuse to confiscate Kyon's sister's cat for being a Talking Animal.
There will be a gendedflipped Endless Eight episodeThat is if Haruhi-slash-Haruki-oh-kami-sama hears us.
The cicadas caught in Endless Eight remember every iteration of the loop.Haruhi keeps winning the cicada-catching contest because they know she's the one causing the loop and are greatful for her gift of seemingly eternal life.
The tenth novel will come out on December 21, 2012.Because that's what all the doomsday theories are really predicting. It will either be so horrifically bad or so mind-blowingly fanastic that it will completely change the world forever.
Something revolutionary or horrible will happen before the third year of the high school, and the time travellers know of this.Why else would they have put Mikuru a year ahead of the rest of the Brigade? There is clearly no purpose for her to serve her function after Haruhi's second and her third year is over. Thus, something will happen to make any further participation redundant.
The whole Endless Eight fiasco is just a ploy to troll the audience.It will last for either eight episodes or until August 31st.
The Endless Eight arc is Kadokawa's attempt at Springtime for Hitler.Kadokawa has received a bunch of money that they're holding out from Nagaru Tanigawa, as well as the investments from the backers. They ordered Endless Eight to go on for this long in an attempt to run the series into the ground, so they end up not turning a profit due to Arc Fatigue. They then are going to run off with the backers' money and abandon Haruhi forever. Kyo Ani is currently trying to sabotage this by making the episodes cost as much as possible by using completely new animation and voicework for each episode.
The Endless Eight episodes are fake.As in non-cannon. They were made with one purpose in mind - to piss fans off to the point where they'll watch anything other than this. The actual season two won't be televised, at least not in the near future, but will be released directly on DVD. Everybody who wants to see it will be forced to buy them, driving sales through the roof. It's either the most brilliant or the most retarded marketing strategy ever.
Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody and Endless Eight WAS Season 2, Everything Else is Season 3Possibly, all Season 2 included was the nine episodes. Then Kyo Ani realized that the backlash of having 8 of 9 new episodes very similar would sink their company...so they delayed the season a year and a half to two years, giving us the live teaser while they scrambled to finish "Season 3" AKA the back half of Season 2.
Endless Eight and the entirety of season 2 were filler... chronologically.The original first season didn't encompass every story within its chronological period; it still left Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody, Endless Eight, and The Sigh Of H.S. These three are now almost certainly making up the entirety of the second season. As such, season 2 will entirely fill the chronological gaps of season 1, and season 3 will be a complete blank slate. The more optimistic bit: In the two and a half years, Kyo Ani have been making a real season 3, entirely fresh and without time-padding repeats, and this will be shown later in the year.
There never was an endless recursion of time.Yuki glitched and started remembering her day from other universes. In the one where Kyon finished his homework, something related to that clicked the glitch out of place so that Yuki's day from those universes wouldn't be remembered by other universes, which is the cause of the differences between the days. Either the glitch or her usual method of operation had her count each day rather than look back to the assigned date of the given day, so it merely appeared that every alternate universe in which the glitch was not stopped before midnight was a separate day in Yuki's personal timeline (the glitch could even have resolved itself at midnight, and Kyon finishing his homework was just the most noticeable difference between those universes and the one in the show). Less seriously, Itsuki can see the future, and wanted to start an endless recursion of meme, with which Yuki played along. The Plan on the part of the creator. All of this infighting, the flame wars, the fandom, absolutely everything, was orchestrated by a very sadistic author with more time on his hands than should be legal. He crafted a story in such a way that it would generate a massive fanbase that will spawn from itself an equally charged hatedom, sprinkling in just enough fanservice of every variety (technical, moe, philosophical, etc.) to make it all work. The way I see it, his purpose is to bait people he probably cannot stand into starting as much conflict as possible amongst themselves, facilitating all kinds of rigorous procedure on something that ultimately doesn't matter much in the grand scheme of things. A look through all manner of discussion of the series has shown that it could not have gone better: fans struggle to defend it, critics struggle to substantiate it, and haters struggle with both. In the end, no one is happy, except those too smart to fall for it and those too jaded to allow themselves to know about it. Meanwhile, the Nagaru Tanigawa and Kyoto Animation get to laugh all the way to the bank while everyone behind them starts flailing torches at each other thinking that any result is better than letting the other side have the last word. No one has missed the point; they've all fallen squarely into the author's plans. Whether they did this to encourage people to use parts of their brains that are otherwise idle 90% of their lives out of pure concern or for any other reason just because they hate us all is entirely up to you. The biggest smoking gun? Endless. Eight. Yes, yes. Nagaru Tanigawa is just like Tite Kubo.
There is no coherent meaning in Haruhi whatsoever. The real reason why there are possible infinite Wild Mass Guesses about Haruhi Suzumiya is because of its heavily archetypal memetic natureIt's also noticable in Wall-E's own WMG page, with it having a WMG dart board rivaling Haruhi Suzumiya's own WMG dart board because of its archetypal "Noah's Ark" structure, and Neon Genesis Evangelion's own WMG page, because of Evangelion taking Character Archetypes for Deconstruction and Mind Screw. There is the possibility that the infinite WMG dart board is the result of its memetic construction: Let's see, a Five-Man Band composed of a reality-warping God, said God can be an infinite WMG dartboard in itself because it's God, an alien Emotionless Girl with Matrix-like programmable powers, a philosophical esper who is a part of a secret organization, a Ms. Fanservice time traveller (don't get started on the Time Lord page), and a normal Real Life person stuck in the middle, said real life person was chosen to have the responsibility to save the world (and then the monomyth takes place on said person). If that ensemble can't be sandwiched in various types of fanfiction, then I don't know what else from Haruhi can be.
"Magic" and time travel in the future are 1: possible and 2: based on the skills of human-data interfaces.Mikuru said, in the baseball episode, that Yuki looked like she was casting a spell. When Kyon asked what she meant, instead if saying "Oh, like a wizard or magical girl witch in an anime" she said "That's classified". In the very near future, the person who discovers time travel figures it out based on what he overhears of Mikuru explaining time travel, or Yuki repeating her explanation as she attempts to initiate a temporal-displacement protocol. "Magic" spells are figured out in the process of trying to set up a reliable targeting method for time travel, and eventually becomes the domain of certain humans who have an unusually high data-processing ability and finesse, most likely with the help of computerized enhancements. Note also Yuki being a witch and Mikuru being a time-travelling Magical Girl.
Slider doesn't meant "Dimensional Slider" but " Street Light Interference Data Exchange"If you are going to create an integrated data entity, why not create a being that can control various form of energy and data unknowingly? That way you can have a way to control the terminals.
The doppelgangers in Snowy Mountain Syndrome all took on the form of the subject of their victims' infatuation.In the last chapter of The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya, the SOS Brigade is trapped in a house created by the Sky Canopy Domain, and they are forced to stay overnight because of the blizzard that forced them inside. A very forward Mikuru, who Kyon is obviously attracted to, ends up in Kyon's room, where she tries to seduce him for unknown reasons. Of course, Kyon realizes she's a fake and drives her away, but then he discovers that each of the other SOS Brigade members also encountered doppelgangers. One could except Koizumi's theory that it was simply a ploy by Yuki to give them a hint to solving the puzzle that would release them, but let's look at exactly what happened. Mikuru enters Kyon's room, and he is definitely infatuated with her. Kyon enters Haruhi's room, and there are plenty of clues to draw the conclusion that she has strong feelings toward him. Same for Kyon's appearance in Yuki's room. It's also no surprise that he ended up in Koizumi's room, given the latter's sometimes odd behavior toward Kyon. Of course, Haruhi ended up in Mikuru's room, which brings us to the next theory...
The fakes in Snow Mountain Syndrome did not reflect who the dweller desired most, but rather the oppositeThat is to say, the one that entered their room was the one that desired them most. For example, Fake Mikuru doesn't enter Kyon's room because he desires her, it's because Mikuru desires him. From this, we can conclude that Haruhi's sexual assault on Mikuru is much more than just playing around, Mikuru does want Kyon but just isn't allowed to form a relationship, and Kyon is bisexual. Alternatively, he enters Koizumi's room because everyone else is indifferent to him, while Kyon sees him as a friend, and therefore "desires" him the most.
Kouyouen Academy is only an all-girls school so Haruhi could go to North High.This might make no sense, and in fact seem outright contradictory, but bear with me for a second. Kouyouen is the school at the bottom of the hill leading to North High in the novels. In the "real" universe, it's a high class, all-girls school. But in the "normal" alternate universe in the fourth book, it's a co-ed school, and Haruhi goes there instead of North High. The rest of this theory is assuming that the "normal" universe is identical to how it would have been without Haruhi's powers, with the exception of Real!Yuki's keys. Haruhi, being a brilliant student, was likely on track to going to Kouyouen after leaving East Junior High. However, she wanted to go to North High to find the mysterious John Smith. So, her mind made Kouyouen an all-girls school. We've never seen Haruhi's parents up to this point, but I assume they're fairly responsible. They noticed that Haruhi was rather... off, and wanted her to get into some normal relationships with her classmates, maybe get a boyfriend. If she wasn't adjusted in high school, she might never adjust after graduating. They were maybe also worried about how she was openly bisexual, perhaps not wanting their daughter to get in a sexual relationship with another girl. So, when Kouyouen became an all-girls school, they didn't want to send her there, and sent her to North High instead. Of course, this theory has almost no impact on anything whatsoever, I just noticed it and didn't think any conclusion was outright stated. Another possibility is that Real!Yuki made the school a co-ed, so that Kyon would actually be able to find both Haruhi and Itsuki fast enough to beat the key's time limit.
The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina as told in the series was actually narrated by an Unreliable NarratorThe film was in fact highly successful, with a coherent dramatic plot, a Crowning Music of Awesome, and special effects so realistic.
Kyon and Haruhi are a 100% perfect Odd CoupleKyon is serious, ordinary, wishes for everything to stay as it is, and secretly believes in aliens, time travellers, psychics and ghosts. Haruhi, on the other hand, is Genki, eccentric, wishes for everything to be unusual and fantastic, and secretly knows all that stuff she believes in doesn't exist. And, if the theory above is true, then Kyon is the God of Ordinarity, while Haruhi is the Goddess of Weirdness.
Kyon and Haruhi are GodBut both were only told the other was. Kyon was told what he was told, but Haruhi is under the impression that if Kyon gets too complacent and bored the universe will eventually quietly switch off. Kyon thinks that the world is mostly "normal" bcause Haruhi's subconcious doesn't believe in the supernatural, but Haruhi thinks that supernatural things exist in small doses because Kyon's subconcious mind thinks they do. This has the effect of turning Yuki, Mikuru and Koizumi into the most manipulative characters in history, and becoming completely nonsesensical when combined with the later novels. (If someone came up with something similar, I'm sorry, I just can't rbing myself to read this entire beast of a page.)
Kyon and Haruhi aren't gods per say- it is their interaction and relationship that is the actual power that shapes things.In other words, they're co-creators like in some pantheons. Haruhi is someone who wants to believe in weird things but subconsciously is still grounded in reality (such as it is) and a normal world; she is capable of enjoying doing crazy things because she's doing it with her friends though she may say she's doing it for other reasons. Kyon on the other hand does not believe in such things and after finding out, still has trouble accepting it all; however, subconsciously and in truth, he is grounded in such weirdness. Though he enjoys being with his friends, he gets as much if not more excitement out of their adventures.
Kyon and Haruhi possess two parts of the same power.Kyon has the power to warp reality, but doesn't have the focus to do so (shows in his studies). Haruhi has the ability to focus such powers into a certain phenomenon, which is why things keep happening the way Haruhi wants it, not the way Kyon would (although what he actually wants is hazy at best). Or more simply, Kyon is the ray of sunlight, and Haruhi is the magnifying glass/convex lens that focuses the former into a crude laser. Both are unaware of their power or the symbiosis, and the illusion for Kyon that Haruhi is the sole owner and user is maintained by the rest of the SOS Brigade. Haruhi is completely ignorant of even the mere existence of the power. Kyon (or both) appears to have the potential to obtain the ability to focus his power for himself, which is why the rest of the SOS Brigade insists he be the one to influence Haruhi to maintain status quo. The SOS Brigade have not told anything to Haruhi because she is too unpredictable and would be too difficult to use for their own agendas (or that she can't obtain the reality warping power). Kyon hasn't prevented any incidents/phenomenon he would have liked to avoid (Cave-cricket, Asakura, Mikuru beams etc.) despite his presumably strong want to stop/avoid them, because he hasn't yet gained the ability to limit the amount of his power available to Haruhi. The incidents to which the sole purpose is to pander to Haruhi (
Flemeth is behind everything.
Haruhi has Bipolar disorder (or Cyclothymia)At the beginning, she's going through a depressive episode. She's not interested in anything and finds everything boring and dull. Then she enters a hypomanic episode and starts the S.O.S. brigade. According to the other wiki, hypomanic episodes are characterized by... pressured speech, inflated self-esteem/grandiosity, flight of ideas, easy distractibility, and involvement in pleasurable activities that may have negative social consequences (such as dragging Kyon through the corridors by his tie, usurping the Literature room, molesting Mikuru, and blackmailing the computer club president). Note that depressive / hypomanic episodes typically last several days. Later in the series she's going through a "normal" period, though she's still eccentric.
Angel Beats!! is in fact a prequel to Haruhi.The cast of Haruhi is the cast of Angel Beats!! several lifetimes on. Yuzuru and Kanade, essentially the two more virtuous people in their Angel Beats!! days, have progressed up the cosmic orders of beings to become a god and the Data Integration Thought Entity respectively. Yuri, on the other hand, being a more ambiguous person, is still languishing in the human stage of her existence, having lived some good lives and some... not so good lives. This also applies to much of the rest of the SSS, who are also still human. Taking pity on his former friends, and particularly Yuri, who he had unresolved romantic feelings for despite being more attracted to Kanade the last time they all met, and so decided to give his powers to her for a little while so that she can have fun - and in doing so, he hopes, eventually mature as a person. He then incarnates as a human destined to meet her so as to enjoy himself as well, though also to keep an eye on her; however, to enhance his own enjoyment of the experience, he either temporarily erases his memories of his true nature or simply suspends them for the time being. What he also does, however, is make contact with the DITE and record what actually happened with part of it, the part which then happens to become a certain humanoid interface used by the DITE to interact with the newly-found anomaly on a certain plane of existence. And so, the ball starts rolling...
The three explanations for how the world came about are adaptations of similar views in real lifeItsuki's represents the biblical stance (God created the universe). Mikuru's represents the Steady State model of the universe as per Fred Hoyle. From the anime (Sigh part 5):
DITE is Akashic RecordsAnd Haruhi has some connection to it, hence her Reality Warper status.
Haruhi uses Celestials because they were something she made when she was a child.Think about it; in the closed spaces, the Celestials appear for no reason, and seem to have no purpose other than to destroy what's inside the spaces to lash out her stress. Haruhi could've used any random creature to destroy what's inside the spaces, but instead uses a giant blue blob. She could've just simple dematerialized everything instead, or have a giant Haruhi instead, but she just creates those giant amorphous celestials. My theory why she used them is because she herself made it sometime when she was young, and kept it all these years in her head. Maybe what she made was something similar, but her subconscious warped it into great monsters. Perhaps they used to be doodles she made when she was a child, or probably some kind of horror from her nightmares. Maybe they were memories from a visit to an abstract art museum. Whatever it was, it was great enough for Haruhi to keep it at the back of her mind and make it a reality when she gets extremely mad.
Haruhi will eventually rewrite the universe...into the Whoniverse.Haruhi is interested in aliens, espers, time travellers, and sliders. Time Lords are from Gallifrey, possess time machines, have psychic abilities, and have even visited parallel universes at times. The Doctor is basically her idea of perfection; not only can he do all of the above, but unlike the other members of his race he has vast adventures through time and space, meeting weird monsters, saving the universe, being generally brilliant, and hanging out with pretty girls who scream a lot (Mikuru could be about 60% of that show's companions). That show is so perfect for her that I can't believe she doesn't watch it...unless it doesn't exist in her universe. Eventually she will change reality into the Whoniverse and herself into the Doctor. Her early adventures will have terrible special effects (she's not used to inventing monsters, and we've all seen her skills as a film-maker), but she will eventually get the hang of it. Her mercurial personality will be reflected in the Doctor's various regenerations; sometimes she can be cranky and prideful (One, Six) sometimes darker and more manipulative (Seven, Nine) and sometimes an enthusiastic Genki Girl (Ten, Eleven).
Kyon getting stabbed at the end of Disappearance was a needed event for the timeline to existIf Kyon was not stabbed, then he would not have to bring Asahina-san (small) back to December 18 to fix the mistake. If he did not bring her back, she would not know about the time travel to that day. This means Asahina-san (big) would not know that she was supposed to wait for Kyon at Tanabata to time travel to December 18th.
the ones who appeared in the rooms of each sos brigade member in snow mountain syndrome, are the ones each member fears the most.
The reason there are aren't any sliders is because......they've all slid into parallel worlds. They exist, and they definately do the whole 'travelling through dimensions' thing, but none of them are actually in Haruhi's universe. Therefore, Kyon hasn't met any yet and the other three factions don't know they exist. (Of course, this is assuming the phonecall girl from novel 9 isn't one. Although she still could be a slider and the theory could still stand if she has just happened to have found her way back home and somehow figured out that Haruhi is the one behind everything. Or something similar.)
The entire series is a Visual Novel.And the "alternate universes" are actually different routes. The "slider" is actually the game player.
Sasaki will put haruhi in her place.she will be the first to sucessfully stand up againist haruhi
The new Beta plot marks the return of Endless EightingAnd there was much rejoicing.
The cast will appear in a FRP settingThe interesting part isn't their alignments, which are obvious, but their character classes.
Endless Eight was sliding.
The whole series takes place inside of a prototype of The MatrixHaruhi is the original One, the Data Entities are Agents, the Data Overmind is The Architect, and the other SOS members aside from Kyon are hackers.
Kyon really did die in the disappearance.Everything that happens in the series after Kyon passing out is all an absurdly long Dying Dream. He never really woke up, and the timeline changing (being pushed down the stairs instead of being stabbed) was just because dreams often don't make any sense.
Endless Eight happened so that sliders could appear.For some reason, Haruhi's universe and the universe the sliders came from were out of phase, with Haruhi being about 600 years ahead. Because of this, sliders couldn't cross over between the two worlds, which is why none were in the SOS brigade. Wanting to meet them and enjoy her summer as much as possible, Haruhi's subconscious killed two birds with one stone and looped two weeks of August 15,498 times, until the two universes were in sync. The loop would have ended that time whatever Kyon did - the only reason they found out that time was that Haruhi didn't realise the slider universe was lined up until Mikuru discovered the lack of a future. So far, they haven't decided to investigate Haruhi more thoroughly or infiltrate the brigade, either because they have their own problems, are busy in looking at the 'normal' universe in general, or feel secure enough in a different universe that Haruhi is no threat.
Endless Eight expanded during production of The DisappearanceOriginally, the second season might have consisted of "Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody", one "Endess Eight" episode, the five parts of "The Sigh of Haruhi", and finally, "The Disappearance of Haruhi". The animators wouldn't have decided to make "The Disappearance" a theatrical movie until after the studio reserved 14 slots for Haruhi. The other seven parts of "Endless Eight" whould have then grown out of a need to swiftly fill those slots. Note that IMDB says "The Disappearance" runs about as long as seven episodes of the anime... Puella Magi Madoka Magica: repeated time traveling and endless recursions of time that are focused on one entity will cause multiple magical potential from multiple timelines to converge onto that person, giving her massive reality-warping potential.
Haruhi would never destroy the world, even subconsciously. Koizumi, Nagato, and Asahina are worried about nothing.Kyon correctly guesses that Haruhi would never, even subconsciously, want anyone to die in "Remote Island Syndrome." It's just not in her nature. Also, when Haruhi re-creates the world at the end of "Melancholy," she does not destroy the old world. Suggesting that she would destroy it is an unsubstantiated guess by Koizumi. The reason that Kyon realizes this is, rather than anyone else, that he has gone out of his way to become Haruhi's friend, rather than treating her like a specimen for study or threat to the world. Kyon's the only one to know Haruhi this well because he's the only one who treats her like a normal human being.
Freserich Nietzche worships Haruhi"I would only believe in a God that knows how to dance."
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya is really about...The story of a girl with reality warping powers fighting back her existential dread.
The Snow Mountain Syndrome Dopplegangers were meant to be individuals their targets would lower their guards around.Combining two different doppleganger theories on this WMG into a single unified WMG. Basically, the dopplegangers were infatuation, fear, or any one unified emotion. Canopy Dominion didn’t and doesn’t understand mortals well enough for that specific of a pin point. What it was really aiming for was to create dopplegangers of a person each member of the group would be receptive to in general. It got that correct. Instead it didn't get the right behaviors leading to the lot of confusion that emerged.
during Snow Mountain Syndrome Yuki directly added the needed information to Koizumi's subconsciousthe whole doppelganger thing has nothing to do with it and Koizumi's theory was just how the information expressed itself since he was thinking about it when he was supposed to realize the answer was 4.
every strange thing Haruhi created can be directly or indirectly explained by the existence of non-physical dataHaruhi is a logical person so she would want supernatural things to have a coherent, logical explanation that humans could eventually figure out. her powers were probably based on the concept from the beginning so she just expanded it to the point where Data Entities, time travel and anything else she was interested in could exist without being inconsistent with the basic rules of the universe. if humans discover the existence of non-physical data and Data Entities (which they would have to discover in order to figure out time travel) then supernatural beings will become common knowledge.
the SOS brigade members are all just clever allegories for elementary particles in physics
The series takes place entirely in your mind.You wanted to create a hypothetical anime series. This is what you came up, including the names of the cast and crew, the cult following, and the Wild Mass Guesses. So... good job.
There are no Sliders because it's a moot point.That is, everyone in the three groups we've already seen already have Slider powers. Yuki was able to create that (more or less) parallel universe all by herself, Mikuru wasn't Ret Gone when trapped in the endless loop that prevented the future from happening (Endless Eight), ergo she technically hails from an alternate universe during those timelines. She shouldn't have been able to come back in time from a future that doesn't exist, after all, so when they were stuck in the loop, she should have been erased, too. Whenever Itsuki enters Closed Space, he's entering a different dimension. There's no need for a Slider because all the powers a Slider could have are divvied up among the SOS Brigade members who come from those organisations.
Had it never ended, eventually Koizumi and Kyon would have remembered everything during the Endless Eight arc.Each episode, they both seemed to remember more and more of the past two weeks before meeting with Asahina and Nagato over it. Eventually, like Nagato, they would remember everything.
About the little boy and girl in The Stinger of Disappearance.Specifically, I want to talk about the little boy. He bears more than a passing resemblance to Tsuruya, particularly because both have dark green hair and similar complexions. It also looks like his eyes have the same shape (that is, they're not a smooth arch where her lashes are like Mikuru's; they're slightly angular. You can see it pretty clearly right here◊), and are even possibly the same colour. I'm thinking he's either Tsuruya's young brother, or a time traveller and is in fact her son; the girl for her part resembles Asahina, to a degree, as she has the same red hair, similar fringe, and the same eye colour. Though why a very young Asahina would time-trave with Tsuruya's son is a bit of a mystery. I bring this up because the green hair thing is really uncommon outside Tsuruya and aliens like Nagato, and Mikuru's red hair isn't exactly common, either.
Sliders cannot exist because their powers conflict with time travel...at least, according to what's been said about time travel.If I recall correctly, Asahina (and likewise her entire faction) believe (more or less) that time is not a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from their liner, non-subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey.... stuff. Which makes sense, as from their point of view, everything is pre-determined (at least, this is how Fujiawara puts it). Everything happens because it was meant to happen. By nature, this would mean that it's impossible for Sliders to exist, as there would be no alternate timeline for a Slider to even go. The theory of time travel that's already been established would actually have to be completely wrong in order for Sliders to exist.
