I need something cleared up
Im re-watching Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya again, and ive gotten up to the point of the 8th episode. However, since my normal site for watching anime is down, ive had to revert over to youtube. However, when searching for episodes, ive gotten 2 different episodes that are labeled as number 8, and not being a total expert on this anime, got confused as to which one was the real one(its not a problem of which one looked legit, its a problem of which one i should watch first). So could one of you experts who knows this anime inside and out give me a synopsis of episode 8 so i know which one to watch?
The problem is there are several different orders of the series. The original broadcast series had a non-chronological broadcast order. The DVD has a chronological order but with a single episode out of place (the adventures of mikuru asahina).
So depending on the order you're watching, it might be the baseball episode (DVD order), the one where the make a website then have to find the computer club president (chronological), or the second episode of the remote island arc (broadcast order).
THEN, if you're watching the second season, which aired including the first season, and runs on chronological order, episode 8 kyon + mikuru travel back in time on tanabata. This is a single non-arc episode that slots between the baseball ep and the computer president ep chronologically (and by that note, in the second season broadcast order as well).
My advice is to find a single source (whether it's a website, a youtube user, or a torrent) (ps use a torrent), and then use that solely. Run through the first few eps to make sure you've seen them until you get to ep 8.
